A Dwelling Place for God
Year A, Quarter 3, Number 30
Hello boys and girls! Uncle Steve has a story for you today from the Holy Bible about the first house built for God.
God talks to Moses
Remember the story of when Moses went up into the mount to talk to God? Let's hear it again fromExodus chapter 24 verses 12 and 18:
12 ¶
And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them. ...
15
And Moses wentup into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount.
16
And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, andthe cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud.
17
And thesight of the glory of the LORD was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.
18
And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in themount forty days and forty nights.” (Ex 24:12-18)
In the next chapters, Moses tells us about many things God said and showed to him, summed up inchapter 25 verses 8 and 9:
“And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, ...
8
let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.
9
According to all that I shew thee,
after 
the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instrumentsthereof, even so shall ye make
it 
.” (Ex 25:8-9)
In verse 40 God reminded him again what he was shown:
“And look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.”
What pattern was shown to Moses that he was to go by? Paul tells us in Hebrews chapter 8 verses 1 to5:
1 ¶
We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;
2
Aminister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.
3
For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: ...
5
Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things,as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou makeall things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.” (Heb 8:1-5)The tabernacle Moses built and the priests that served in it were an “example and shadow of heavenly things.”Paul tells us more in chapter 9 verses 8 to 11 and 22 to 24.
8 ¶
The way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:
9
Which
was
a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, ...
11
But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made withhands, that is to say, not of this building;” (Heb 9:8-11)
22
And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
23 ¶
 It was
therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but theheavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
24
For Christ is not entered into the holy placesmade with hands,
which are
the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of Godfor us:” (Heb 9:22-24)
Today Jesus is our high priest sitting “on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens.”

The tabernacle and holy places made with hands “are figures of the true.” They were “patterns of thingsin the heavens,” “of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.”
Cheerful Givers
Moses tells us in Exodus chapter 25 verse 2 how God wanted the people to provide the things to buildthe sanctuary with:
“Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with hisheart ye shall take my offering.” (Ex 25:2)
After Moses came down from the mount, he told the children of Israel what God said in Exodus 35verses 4 to 9:
4
And Moses spake unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, This
is
the thing which theLORD commanded, saying,
5
Take ye from among you an offering unto the LORD: whosoever 
is
of a willingheart, let him bring it, an offering of the LORD; gold, and silver, and brass,
6
And blue, and purple, and scarlet,and fine linen, and goats’
hair 
,
7
And rams’ skins dyed red, and badgers’ skins, and shittim wood,
8
And oil for the light, and spices for anointing oil, and for the sweet incense,
9
And onyx stones, and stones to be set for theephod, and for the breastplate.” (Ex 35:4-9)
In verses 20 to 29 we learn what they did:
20 ¶
And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from the presence of Moses.
21
And they came,every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing,
and 
they brought theLORD’S offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all his service, and for the holygarments.
22
And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing hearted,
and 
brought bracelets, and earrings,and rings, and tablets, all jewels of gold: and every man that offered
offered 
an offering of gold unto the LORD.
23
And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’
hair 
, and redskins of rams, and badgers’ skins, brought
them
.
24
Every one that did offer an offering of silver and brass brought the LORD’S offering: and every man, with whom was found shittim wood for any work of the service, brought
it 
.
25
And all the women that were wise hearted did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun,
both
of blue, and of purple,
and 
of scarlet, and of fine linen.
26
And all the women whose heart stirred them up inwisdom spun goats’
hair 
.
27
And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate;
28
And spice, and oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense.
29
The children of Israel brought a willing offering unto the LORD, every man and woman, whose heart madethem willing to bring for all manner of work, which the LORD had commanded to be made by the hand of Moses.” (Ex 35:20-29)
Paul tells us in Second Corinthians chapter 9 verse 7 what kind of givers God loves:
“Every man according as he purposeth in his heart,
 so let him give
; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for Godloveth a cheerful giver.” (2Co 9:7)
Skillful Workmen
Building the tabernacle after the pattern would require much skill. God told Moses who would havethat skill in Exodus chapter 31 and verses 1 to 6:
1 ¶
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2
See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah:
3
And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and

in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,
4
To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, andin brass,
5
And in cutting of stones, to set
them
, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.
6
And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee;” (Ex 31:1-6)
Moses told the people what God said in chapter 35 and verses 30 to 35:
30 ¶
And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See, the LORD hath called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, theson of Hur, of the tribe of Judah;
31
And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding,and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;
32
And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and insilver, and in brass,
33
And in the cutting of stones, to set
them
, and in carving of wood, to make any manner of cunning work.
34
And he hath put in his heart that he may teach,
both
he, and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan.
35
Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, andof the cunning workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of theweaver,
even
of them that do any work, and of those that devise cunning work.” (Ex 35:30-35)
So the work began in chapter 36 verses 1 to 7:
1 ¶
Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whom the LORD put wisdom andunderstanding to know how to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all that theLORD had commanded.
2
And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whose heartthe LORD had put wisdom, even every one whose heart stirred him up to come unto the work to do it:
3
And they received of Moses all the offering, which the children of Israel had brought for the work of theservice of the sanctuary, to make it withal. And they brought yet unto him free offerings every morning.
4
Andall the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made;
5
And they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work,which the LORD commanded to make.
6
And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimedthroughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary.So the people were restrained from bringing.
7
For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it,and too much.” (Ex 36:1-7)
Dedication of the Sanctuary 
After the workmen finished building everything, Exodus chapter 39 and verses 32 to 43 tell us whatthey did:
32 ¶
Thus was all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation finished: and the children of Israeldid according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they.
33
And they brought the tabernacle untoMoses, the tent, and all his furniture, his taches, his boards, his bars, and his pillars, and his sockets,
34
And thecovering of rams’ skins dyed red, and the covering of badgers’ skins, and the vail of the covering,
35
The ark of the testimony, and the staves thereof, and the mercy seat,
36
The table,
and 
all the vessels thereof, and theshewbread,
37
The pure candlestick,
with
the lamps thereof,
even with
the lamps to be set in order, and all thevessels thereof, and the oil for light,
38
And the golden altar, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and thehanging for the tabernacle door,
39
The brasen altar, and his grate of brass, his staves, and all his vessels, thelaver and his foot,
40
The hangings of the court, his pillars, and his sockets, and the hanging for the court gate,his cords, and his pins, and all the vessels of the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of the congregation,
41
Thecloths of service to do service in the holy
 place
, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and his sons’garments, to minister in the priest’s office.
42
According to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so the childrenof Israel made all the work.
43
And Moses did look upon all the work, and, behold, they had done it as the LORDhad commanded, even so had they done it: and Moses blessed them.” (Ex 39:32-43)
Exodus chapter 40 and verses 17 to 33 tell us what Moses did with everything:
