Terumah
 – 
Offerings:
 
Exodus 25:1
 – 
27:19.I. This Parsha is fascinating because it begins here with the first of 5 Torah portionsspecifically describing the Tabernacle construction and furnishing. We have learnedin the past the Tabernacle and subsequent Temple were constructed to represent theform of a Man upon the earth. This Temple - man represents Messiah and all theinteractions with the Priesthood and Israel who represent the Bride, vividly describethe intimacy of husband and wife within the confines of Torah. The title then,
tĕr
uwmah, an offering (specifically to YHVH) becomes the focal point, and
reveals our level of commitment to the one to whom the offering is brought. Let‟s
examine this Hebrew word:
 
Offering, #8641,
tĕruwmah. We know it means „to offer‟ – 
 
so let‟s
strip away the prefixed Tav which is 3
rd
person, future tense and infers you
shall, he shall. And let‟s remove the suffixed Hey, which makes the word
feminine indicating not only what - BUT WHOM is being offered
 – 
the Bride!This leaves us with the root #7311, ruwm, to lift up, to elevate oneself. Toraise or bear children. This Resh-Vav-Mem root is first seen in Gen. 7:17where we have the flood upon the earth and the Ark which is the object beingelevated. This first mention gives a bit more insight as our detective work 
uncovers a clue here: Let‟s leave ruwm and come back to it later…:0
 
 
Ark, #8392, tebah, translated ark, vessel, basket (Moshe). But, did younotice the Tav prefix again? Well, the Bet-Hey root stem is an inflected
personal pronoun meaning „in her‟, „in it‟. Thus, “You shall (be) in it/her”
.
Now, back to „RUWM‟…
 It is imperative that we understand the connection here to the waters of the floodand the waters of the Nile River where Moshe was found in this ark. Both representthe bitter waters of judgment and the ONE who would enter into those waters onbehalf of His Bride taking her penalty upon Him. This word ruwm is also seen inGen. 3: 1, 7, as a root within #6175 & #5903, aruwm and eyrom. These words are
used to describe the serpent and Adam/Eve‟s naked condition and involve the
intimate encounter and conception of seed.In each example given: The Tabernacle, The Ark, The Basket/Ark; we can see howentering into becoming One within the confines of this intimate place requires the
 
LIFE of the one coming to it! Thus, Terumah indicates it is a physicaldemonstration of our being elevated
 – 
lifted up as an offering, a gift, the Bridecreated for her husband, who gives her body to him. 1Cor. 6:19, 20. You are NOTyour own once you accept the price the Ark required
 – 
the death of the One whoentered the bitter waters on your behalf!
A Willing Heart…
 II. The one requirement of YHVH was that of a willing heart:
 
Willing, #5068, nadab, to offer, be offered, to incite, impel. Do youremember this word? It is the name of one of the sons of Aaron who was onthe Mountain of Yah
 – 
Sinai with Moshe and the Elders, the next in line asHigh Priest, and finally, the one along with Abihu, destroyed by fire. Hisgrandfather was `Ammiynadab. The word Ammi means My People.
Nadab as a Priest represented the Bride who had been elevated
 – 
ruwm
 – 
liftedup, belonging to YHVH
. All those from the loins of Ammiynadab, wouldbecome a people offered! He is the great
 – 
grandfather of Boaz who fathersJesse, who fathers David!Ironically, Nadab is burned with fire, the punishment for an Adulterous Bride whois of the priestly lineage!
 
Heart, #3820, leb, heart, mind, etc. The Lamed in front
 – 
to teach, urge,instruct, the Bet
 – 
house, wife. If this order is compromised and the Bet isplace in front of the Lamed we have Bel, the Chief Babylonian god to whomIsrael constantly resorted. The first letter of Torah is Bet, the last letter (seenin the word Israel) is this Lamed, forming the heart
 – 
Lev of YHVH. TheLamed indicates The Shepherd who guards His Bride. Every letter in theTorah sums up His love for her and that love returned. The Sages teach theletters represent the People of YHVH, if one letter is missing or corrupted, theentire scroll is lost. Yahshua had to become the Living Scroll who wouldHimself be lifted up
 – 
elevated (Jn. 12: 32) in order to elevate or draw us toHim.
 
Take, #3947, laqach, to take, seize, to take in marriage. Only those whobrought a proper offering, which would indicate if their heart was in fact His,could be elevated. The offerings indicated where their true treasure lay. Matt.6:21.
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also
