Discussion for Exodus 40

  • A disciple
    "On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation." The Tabernacle being set up in the beginning of the year, is because Jesus is the reason we live; and the sign of God among men, to teach us about His holiness, glory and beauty, providing us a place of mediation, salvation and communion while we are journeying through this wilderness.
  • Gloria D
    One thing for sure is that the children of Isreal sinned against God time after time even wben he proved himself to them time after time. The most beautiful part of it is he gave them a chance to repent and to come on the Lords side. What a mighty God we serve.
  • Dexter Martin
    Exodus to me shows that the people of God were stubborn, they were living in bondage and they wanted to continue living that way, as slaves. They did not believe that God would have brought them out.
  • Joseph Appiah
    We realise from this chapter that the cloud of the glory of God came upon the tabernacle after all the work and instructions given to Moses and the people had been fully executed to completion. This tells us that God will always and only honour total obedience and complete faithfulness to service. There is no tolerance for partial obedience and partial service with the LORD. If we therefore want the glory and honour of the LORD in ourlives and ministries, then it requires complete and total obedience to the WORD OF GOD and to the specific assignment and instructions that HE JEHOVAH has given us as individuals and as a a Church. The question we then need to be asking ourselves is 'are we totally obeying the WORD OF GOD? ' Are you giving total and complete obedience and faithfulness to the specific assignment and instructions the LORD has given us as individuals and as a Church or family?
