2 Corinthians 7:1 Therefore, my dear friends, since we have these
promises, let us purify ourselves from everything that can defile
either body or spirit, and strive to be completely holy, out of
reverence for God.

Make room for us in your hearts- we haven't wronged anyone, we
haven't corrupted anyone, we haven't exploited anyone.

I am not saying this to put blame on you, for I have already said
that you have a place in our hearts, whether we live together or
die together;

that I am very confident in you; that I am very proud of you; that
you have filled me with encouragement; and that in spite of all our
troubles, I am overflowing with joy. (2Co 7:1-4 CJB)
If I caused you pain by my letter, I do not regret it. Even if I did
regret it before- for I do see that that letter did distress you,
though only for a short time-

now I rejoice not because you were pained, but because the pain
led you to turn back to God. For you handled the pain in God's way,
so that you were not harmed by us at all.

Pain handled in God's way (GODLY SORROW KJV) produces a
turning from sin to God which leads to salvation, and there is
nothing to regret in that! But pain handled in the world's way
produces only death. (2Co 7:8-10 CJB)
Consider as we enter into what ostensibly appears to be a re-hash of
the last couple of portions must serve a greater purpose. The things were
looking at in Vayyakhel again are the Tabernacle furnishings and raw
materials that we first were introduced to in Terumahor The Offering.

Much of our understanding can be improved upon if we take into
context what has occurred just prior to this portion. If you recall in Ki-Tisa,
this portion was all about Service and most importantly, realizing that
YHVH has provided the mode of service acceptable to Him. Often times left
to our own private interpretation weve made justification for things that
veer far outside the pathway ordained by YHVH either because thats how
my pastor explained how its done, or this theological school has adopted
this position on the issue, or even because this is how everyone else is
doing itbut sometimes the majority, if I may borrow a phraseonly
means that all the fools are on one side. Allow me to use Scripture to paint
you a picture of the pain Israel felt when they heard the word uttered by
YHVH through Moses,

Lamentations 1:1 How lonely lies the city that once thronged
with people! Once great among the nations, now she is like a widow!
Once princess among provinces, she has become a vassal.

Bitterly she weeps at night, tears running down her
cheeks. Not one of all her lovers is there to comfort
her. Her friends have all betrayed her; they have
become her enemies.

Y'hudah has fled into exile from oppression and endless slavery.
She lives among the nations, but there she finds no rest. Her
pursuers have all overtaken her in the midst of her distress.

The roads to Tziyon are mourning because no one comes to
the festivals. Her gateways are all deserted, her cohanim are
groaning, her unmarried girls are grieving- how bitter it is for her!
Exo.35:1-38:20 1 Kings 7:40-50 Heb.10:25

3 | P a g e

Her foes have become the head, her enemies relax, for ADONAI has
made her suffer because of her many sins. Her young children have
gone away captive before the foe.

All splendor has departed from the daughter of Tziyon. Her
princes have become like deer unable to find pasture, running on,
exhausted, fleeing from the hunter. (Lam 1:1-6 CJB)
The book of Lamentations is not found in this weeks Haftarah, but
its pain most certainly is. Yermeyahu, or Jeremiah, also known as the
weeping prophet powerfully assessed the Godly Sorrow directed at a
people that once had been The Crowning Jewel in Adonais Mitre. Their
minds however had allowed opportunity for pride and selfishness to seep
in, thus entertaining all manner of justification for exploring the path of
rebellion against YHVH. After the assault and conquest of The Holy city,
Jeremiah and Israel were devastated and in anguish; anguish over the fact
that they had been defeated, that they had invited defeat in through their
own choices and lusts. We learn from reading in the book of Yeshuas half
brother, His servant Yakov,
But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his
own lust.
Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and
when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.
Do not be deceived,
my beloved brethren.

Every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no
variation, or shifting shadow.

In the exercise of His will He brought us forth by the word of
truth, so that we might be, as it were, the first fruits among His
Exo.35:1-38:20 1 Kings 7:40-50 Heb.10:25

This you know, my beloved brethren. But let everyone be quick to
hear, slow to speak and slow to anger;

for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.

Therefore putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of
wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is
able to save your souls.
But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely
hearers who delude themselves.

For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like
a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror;

for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has
immediately forgotten what kind of person he was.

But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of
liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an
effectual doer, this man shall be blessed in what he does. (Jam 1:14-
25 NAS).

"Many shepherds have ruined My vineyard, They have trampled
down My field; They have made My pleasant field A desolate
"It has been made a desolation, Desolate, it mourns before Me;
The whole land has been made desolate, Because
no man lays it to heart.

"On all the bare heights in the wilderness Destroyers have come,
For a sword of the LORD is devouring From one end of the land
even to the other; There is no peace for anyone.

"They have sown wheat and have reaped thorns, They have
strained themselves to no profit. But be ashamed of your harvest
Because of the fierce anger of the LORD." (Jer 12:10-13 NAS)
Read the book of Jeremiah, Lamentations, and Ezekiel, all which exclaim
the sorrow and pain brought on by a chosen royal people who threw their
eternal heritage away because of a lack of humility, because of a lack of
honesty, because of a refusal to be accountable. This, I submit to you is
what we witness in the sin of the Golden Calf back in Ki-Tisa.
"Go up to a land flowing with milk and honey; for I will not go up
in your midst, because you are an obstinate people, lest I destroy you
on the way."

When the people heard this sad word, they went into
mourning, and none of them put on his ornaments.

For the LORD had said to Moses, "Say to the sons of Israel, 'You
are an obstinate people; should I go up in your midst for one moment,
I would destroy you. Now therefore, put off your ornaments from
you, that I may know what I will do with you.'"

So the sons of Israel stripped themselves of their
ornaments from Mount Horeb onward.
(Exo 33:3-6 NAS)

This is the same word we see being used to describe the Land of Israel in
Jeremiah 12:11 after being laid waste, it says the actual land mourned.
The land is part of YHVHs creationand He chose that specific portion of
earth to specifically rest His presence upon. When Israel rebelled and
defiled themselves with all manner of pagan customs and uncleanness and
sin, it defiled the land also, and it mourned the absence of YHVHs
Shekinah Glory as His presence lifted up and left Yerushalayim.
The creation waits eagerly for the sons of God to be revealed;

for the creation was made subject to frustration- not willingly, but
because of the one who subjected it. But it was given a reliable hope

that it too would be set free from its bondage to decay and
would enjoy the freedom accompanying the glory that God's children
will have.

We know that until now, the whole creation has been groaning
as with the pains of childbirth;
and not only it, but we ourselves,
who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we continue
waiting eagerly to be made sons- that is, to have our whole bodies
redeemed and set free. (Rom 8:19-
23 CJB)
The word for Ornaments used three times
in Ki-Tisa, Exodus chapter 33 is the word
adi. If you notice the 2-letter root word comprised
there of the Ayin and the Dalet means To See The
Door, and also means a Witness. The
ornaments, or Adi worn by Israel was a
Witness of YHVHs deliverance of Israel

Pharaoh, items plundered by Israel given them by the Egyptians who
dreaded them and saw them as they now truly were, YHVHs special chosen
people, and so they offered them their articles of Silver, or Gold and of
clothing as revealed in Exodus chapter 12. In the Ancient Hebrew Lexicon
we see in the paleo Hebrew the word for ornament reveals the following:

The 2-letter root word Ayin-Dalet is also the same root word found in
our Hebrew word for the Feasts of YHVH, or moed which
translated pictographically means the means by which YHVHs
people experience and become a testimony of eternity. YHVHs feasts
and especially His Shabbat are critical components of following His
Calendar, and His timelinewhich is why it is of grave significance
Exo.35:1-38:20 1 Kings 7:40-50 Heb.10:25

8 | P a g e

that we dare not stray away from His appointed timeline, as this
ultimately will liken us to an anti-messiah spirit.
So, what were trying to establish here is a clearer understanding of the
relationship the people have with Moses and YHVH. The Gold, Silver and
Jewelry used in the construction of the Mishkan came from Egypt, and it
was a witness to The nation of Israel of YHVHs deliverance, redemption
and protection; every time they saw the purple, blue and scarlet yarn
knitted within the curtains of the Mishkan, everytime they saw the
Menorah, everytime they saw the Altar of Sacrifice, the Copper Laver, these
things were all very real reminders of the victory achieved by walking in
humble faith to the Elohim of Yisrael. And so when they were told to take
off their ornamentsthey mourned. The tears flowed because now they
realized all their moaning, all their ego, all their mumbling, and
entertaining things outside the protective covering of GOD had become the
very thing that would bring judgment back upon them.
He says to Israel, Look what youve done! I am your husband, I am your
father, I am your redeemer, when everyone else wants to defile you and
reach in do you harm, I AM the ONE who protects you and loves. I descend
upon you and bring my Shekinah glory into your houseno one else! Just
you! And you alone! & what have you done?
It breaks my heartbut in truth, thats actually a blessing, because Godly
Sorrow works a repentance for which we dont have to regret, because
repentance brings reconciliationand the Restoration of All Things!
And so this is where we begin with this weeks parashaVayyakhel, or
And He Assembled.
YHVH has just restored fellowship to Israel, much to Moses credit as
he pleaded with YHVH to lead them all as we read in Ki-Tisa YHVH was
content to destroy the people, & then taking and making from out of Moses
a Great Nation. (Exo. 32:9-13) And we read how since Israel had defiled the
Exo.35:1-38:20 1 Kings 7:40-50 Heb.10:25

9 | P a g e

campand the land, Moses was required to erect a temporary tent of
meeting outside the main camp, and when he went into the tent to meet
with YHVH, the Cloud of His presence would descend upon the doorway to
the tent and all the men from each tribe would stand outside their tent door
and when they saw the Cloud of His presence they would prostrate
themselves and worship Adonai. These people had been disciplined, and
humbled, but they had also been restored, and they knew that they had to
keep low, in order to be under the protection of YHVHand to be
surrounded with His presencelisten
We walk by faith, not by sod-level goose-bumps, but is it safe to say that
GOD does provide a tangible, palpable recognition of His presence when we
worship in the right frame of heart? Absolutelyhow much more were our
ancestors amazed and awed as they prostrated themselves when the
Shekinah GLORY descended upon the Tabernacle at the completion of its
construction, upon the Ark of Testimony from between the two golden
keruvim above the Mercy Seat who is symbolic of Messiah Yeshua? Make
no mistake, our ancestors experienced His presence in ways and fullness we
can only dream!
So, the ox is out of the ditch, were back on track, and to begin this portion
the first thing YHVH addresses is ShabbatThe Sabbath.
Then Moses assembled all the congregation of the sons of Israel, and
said to them, "These are the things that the LORD has commanded you
to do.

"For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day you shall
have a holy day, a sabbath of complete rest to the LORD; whoever
does any work on it shall be put to death.
"You shall not kindle a
fire in any of your dwellings on the sabbath day." (Exo 35:1-3 NAS)
Exo.35:1-38:20 1 Kings 7:40-50 Heb.10:25

10 | P a g e

Suffice it to say, Sabbath is a calendar issueit speaks of boundaries, and
limits and how to live according to Gods Calendarbecause He is revealing
in the natural again, something He wants to accomplish in the Spiritual.
Holy Time-
"But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'You shall
surely observe My sabbaths; for this is a sign between Me and you
throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the
LORD who sanctifies you.

'Therefore you are to observe the sabbath, for it is holy to you.
Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever
does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his
people. (Exo 31:13-14 NAS)

'Every one of you shall reverence his mother and his father, and
you shall keep My sabbaths; I am the LORD your God. (Lev 19:3 NAS)

Shabbat is a time for us to be
refreshed or YHVH. Being the
adamic clay vessels, we carry His
Ruach within us, but throughout the
week we experience the challenges
and ups and downs that come with
being His Set-Apart Holy people,
Exo.35:1-38:20 1 Kings 7:40-50 Heb.10:25

12 | P a g e

striving to carve out Holy Space in an Unholy place! And as we check our
hearts throughout the week we tend to find the plaque build-up of
uncleanness, that grimy gritty dirty things that seek to find entry into our
hearts to contaminate the Testimony of Yeshua in the Ark of Heart. And so
Shabbat is a special time of refreshing that we can come together and hear,
or Shema His Torah, receive His easy Yoke, and His easy burden, and
experience Life the way He intends all of us to; because Shabbat is actually
symbolic of the millennial reign of Messiah.
The time Yeshua comes back and establishes His kingdom, for the
1000 years, that period of time is going to be one long Sabbath, and there
we will worship Him and rest from all our labors, and not have to worry
about being on guard from those things that would like to prey upon us
from within and withoutwe will be free from all of those things and will
be refreshed in His presence Daily!
But more importantly, Shabbat is a special time YHVH affords man to
press in to the presence of YHVH, much like Moses did when he ascended
the mountain to be in His presence. Pictographically, Shabbat is a Shin, a
Bet, and the Tav. Shin means press, bite, or pressureBet means house,
the family inside it, within, or insideand Tav means Mark, Sign,
Covenant, Seal, & Own, as the Tav pictographically looks like a crossSo to
abide and rest in His Shabbat pictographically speaking, is how we

In Exodus 35:3 we read
"You shall not kindle a fire in any of your
dwellings on the sabbath day." Some points to consider:

Exo.35:1-38:20 1 Kings 7:40-50 Heb.10:25

13 | P a g e

To kindle on Shabbat is referring to the exercise of energy to
accomplish work for a personal reason. Merriam Websters dictionary
defines Work as toil, labor, employment, a task or job; the energy
used when a force is applied over a given distance, to exert oneself
physically or mentally.
There are many people who are well-intentioned in this area, some
may claim not enough is being done to set definite boundaries, others
may see others reacting unrealistically.
The thing I want to encourage everyone to do is to consider the
significance of fire as it was used in the tabernacle:
The Altar of Sacrifice:
'And the fire on the altar shall be
kept burning on it. It shall not go out, but the priest shall burn
wood on it every morning; and he shall lay out the burnt offering
on it, and offer up in smoke the fat portions of the peace offerings
on it.
'Fire shall be kept burning continually on the altar; it is
not to go out. (Lev 6:12-13 NAS)
The Golden Menorah:
"Command the sons of Israel that they
bring to you clear oil from beaten olives for the light, to make a
lamp burn continually.
"Outside the veil of testimony in the tent of
meeting, Aaron shall keep it in order from evening to morning before
the LORD continually; it shall be a perpetual statute throughout
your generations.
"He shall keep the lamps in order on the pure
gold lampstand before the LORD continually. (Lev 24:2-4 NAS)
The Altar of Incense:
"And Aaron shall burn fragrant incense
on it; he shall burn it every morning when he trims the lamps.

"And when Aaron trims the lamps at twilight, he shall burn incense.
There shall be perpetual incense before the LORD throughout your
generations. (Exo 30:7-8 NAS)
Each of these furnishings required work in order for fire to be kindled.
Either one of the priests was assigned to gather and prepare the wood used
Exo.35:1-38:20 1 Kings 7:40-50 Heb.10:25

14 | P a g e

to keep the fire buring upon the Altar of Sacrifice, or the children of Israel
were required to constantly bring in the pure pounded oil pressed from the
fresh olives to keep the Menorah burning, and the Altar of Incense required
a burning coal from the Altar of Sacrifice. All of these required a kindled
flame, and all required someone to do the work of the service of the
Mishkan to maintain the fire constantly.
So what we need to understand is that YHVH doesnt want us to do
things to maintain the Mishkan on Shabbat. A physical structure first
constructed in the wildernessbut it was a copy of the Real one, already
established in the heavenlies as GOD instructed Moshe. Also, we are the
Temple of the Holy Spirit, so Abba is trying to get us to understand that as
He rested from His labor on the 7
day of creation and therefore it was
refreshed, we too are to not depend upon an arm of flesh to bring us relief
on Shabbat, rather to spend our time worshipping The LORD in gratitude
and thankfulness that HE is our provider, our sustainer, our delivererand
that He has created The Sabbath to allow man to be refreshed in His
presence! If we are caught up in doing things for ourselveswe lose sight of
the blessing YHVH desired to bestow on us in the first place! Let us then
enter in His rest!
So there remains a Shabbat-keeping for God's people.
For the one
who has entered God's rest has also rested from his own works, as
God did from his.
Therefore, let us do our best to enter that rest;
so that no one will fall short because of the same kind of
disobedience. (Heb 4:9-11 CJB)

YHVHs message still remains the same, He is longsuffering wanting no one
to perish but for all to come to the truth.
Yeshua came to seek and save those who were lost
For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was
lost. (Luk 19:10 KJV)
To become lost, once upon a time you had to have
been found!
Apostle Peter said,
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as
some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any
to perish but for all to come to repentance. (2Pe 3:9 NAS)

"Those who lavish gold from the purse And weigh silver on the scale
Hire a goldsmith, and he makes it into a god; They bow down, indeed they
worship it.
"They lift it upon the shoulder and carry it; They set it in its place
and it stands there. It does not move from its place. Though one may cry to it, it
cannot answer; It cannot deliver him from his distress.
"Remember this, and be assured; Recall it to
mind, you transgressors.

am God, and there is no one like Me,

believers come together and love one another with a willing heart offer
ourselves in Worship to GOD in His Mishkan on Shabbat. And when we
Assemble together it reveals what Paul spoke of in Ephesians when he said,
But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been
brought near by the blood of Christ.
For He Himself is our peace,
who made both groups into one, and broke down the barrier of the
dividing wall,
by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the
Law of commandments contained in ordinances, that in Himself He
might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace,

Is this not what YHVH has been desiring to do all along? Hear the echo in
Ezekiels prophecy,
The word of the LORD came again to me saying,

"And you, son of man, take for yourself one stick and write on it,
'For Judah and for the sons of Israel, his companions'; then take
another stick and write on it, 'For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and
all the house of Israel, his companions.'

"Then join them for yourself one to another into one stick, that
they may become one in your hand.

"And when the sons of your people speak to you saying, 'Will you
not declare to us what you mean by these?'

say to them, 'Thus says the Lord God, "Behold, I will take the
stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of
Israel, his companions; and I will put them with it, with the stick of
Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand."'

"And the sticks on which you write will be in your hand before
their eyes.

"And say to them, 'Thus says the Lord God, "Behold, I will take
the sons of Israel from among the nations where they have gone, and
I will gather them from every side and bring them into their own

and I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of
Israel; and one king will be king for all of them; and they will no
longer be two nations, and they will no longer be divided into two

"And they will no longer defile themselves with their idols, or
with their detestable things, or with any of their transgressions; but
I will deliver them from all their dwelling places in which they have
sinned, and will cleanse them. And they will be My people, and I will
be their God.

"And My servant David will be king over them, and they will all
have one shepherd; and they will walk in My ordinances, and keep My
statutes, and observe them.

"And they shall live on the land that I gave to Jacob My servant,
in which your fathers lived; and they will live on it, they, and their
sons, and their sons' sons, forever; and David My servant shall be
their prince forever.

"And I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an
everlasting covenant with them. And I will place them and multiply
them, and will set My sanctuary in their midst forever.

"My dwelling place also will be with them; and I will be their
God, and they will be My people.

"And the nations will know that I am the LORD who sanctifies
Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forever."'" (Eze 37:15-
28 NAS)
YHVH told Moshe,
"And let them construct a sanctuary for Me,
that I may dwell among them. (Exo 25:8 NAS)
