Today’s reading: Bible Gateway Old/New Testament 365 Reading Plan February 6 2015

Today’s Old Testament reflection: Exodus 39-40

The Priestly Garments – Exodus 39:1 | recounts all the details of everything they made for the Priestly Garments – in most cases, the details are greater here than in previous sections – each item was made as God instructed.

The Ephod – Exodus 39:2-7 | recounts all the details of everything they made for the Ephod – in most cases, the details are greater here than in previous sections – each item was made as God instructed.

The Breastpiece – Exodus 39:8-21 | recounts all the details of everything they made for the Breastpiece – in most cases, the details are greater here than in previous sections – each item was made as God instructed.

Other Priestly Garments – Exodus 39:22-31 | recounts all the details of everything they made for the other Priestly Garments – in most cases, the details are greater here than in previous sections – each item was made as God instructed.

Moses Inspects the Tabernacle – Exodus 39:32-43 | when the workers completed all the work for the Tabernacle, they brought it all to Moses for inspection. He found that everything was completed according to God’s instructions.

Setting up the Tabernacle – Exodus 40:1-33 | “God said to Moses…” sent up the Tent of Meeting on the 1st day of the 1st month. God instructed Moses how to set everything up, anointing, consecration, and preparations for Aaron and his sons. It was all set up and completed by the 1st day of the 1st month of the 2nd year that God brought them out of slavery.

The Glory of the Lord – Exodus 40:34-38 | God came down in the sight of all as a cloud by day and fire by night. His glory filled the Tabernacle. Moses couldn’t enter it because God was in there. The Israelites only traveled when God’s presence went up from the Tabernacle, if He was there, they stayed in that place until he left again – only then would they travel.

Exodus is complete – 2 down 64 to go!

Today’s New Testament reflection: Matthew 23:23:-39

Seven Woes on the Teachers of the Law and the Pharisees {cont.} – Matthew 23:23-39 | 4) Woe to the hypocrites (the teachers of the law and Pharisees) they are concerned about and make certain to give a 10th of their spices but they neglect and disregard the more important matters of the Law like mercy, justice, and faithfulness. Those blind guides should be concerned about and do all God requires, not just what they like or think. Jesus says they strain out a gnat but swallow a camel! {What they do has no logic} 5) Woe to the hypocrites who clean the outside but leave the inside filthy – full of greed and self-indulgence. They are so blind! If they cleaned the inside, the outside would also be clean! 6) Woe to the hyprocrites who look beautiful on the inside, while their insides are dead bones, and everything unclean! In the same way, the outside appears righteous but the inside is nothing but hypocrisy and wickedness. 7) Woe to the hyprocrites who build and decorate tombs for the prophets and righteous. They say they wouldn’t have joined in on shedding their blood but they testify against themselves. Then Jesus calls them out and says, “Go ahead, then, and complete what your ancestors started!” {I chuckled when I read this – I envisioned the famous Clint Eastwood line from the 1983 movie Sudden Impact, “Go ahead, make my day!” Jesus is so awesome!} Jesus continued to tell them that all the righteous blood from Abel to Zechariah will be on them. Then He said, “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing. Look, your house is left to you desolate. For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord Psalm 118:26, Matthew 21:9 {Jesus tells them He longs for them to come to Him so he can shelter and care for them but they continue to shut Him out}.

I am a daughter of God, a servant of the Lord, a wife to a patient husband, and a mama of two forgiving boys. God has placed these three men in my life needfully so. I thank Him for them everyday. And like so many of the Lord’s children, I am a work-of-glory-in-progress. I am on a journey to reclaim and renew my life in Christ. It took me 34 years to learn that when nothing else works, God does!

  1. I love the parts about the protection of Jesus. …how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing – Jesus tells them He longs for them to come to Him so he can shelter and care for them but they continue to shut Him out} – I know how it feels to be, not so much shut out, as not included. When I was a lot younger I remember wanting to have friends and trying to befriend them but they didn’t welcome me in. After reading this I realize how Jesus must feel when I am too busy for him. I don’t go for long periods of time without spending time with him, but just in the day there are probably times when I should stop what I’m dong and talk to him instead of rushing around or being totally face down in my piles of work. This is a good reminder.
