Weekly Pursuit – Week 2 of February

Feb 9, 2015 by

Verse:

Heb. 8:5 “Who serve the example and shadow of the heavenly things, even as Moses was divinely instructed when he was about to complete the tabernacle; for, ‘See,’ He said, ‘that you make all things according to the pattern that was shown to you in the mountain.’”

Excerpts:

The direction of the book of Exodus is toward the building of the tabernacle. We have pointed out that Bezaleel, the grandson of Hur, was granted the gift by God to become skilled in working on various aspects of the tabernacle. This indicates that our prayer needs to be with a view to the building of the church. What God is doing today is toward this goal. If our prayer life does not have in view the building of the church, our prayer will not last very long. But if we have the priesthood and the kingship and care for the building up of the tabernacle, the church, our prayer life will not become heavy. Rather, it will be supported by the priesthood and the kingship, and it will have the building of the church in view. (Life-study of Exodus, msg. 47)

The world is against God’s building, and God’s building is opposed to the world. God’s chosen people are the crucial factor between these two opposing forces. If God’s people remain in the world, God cannot do anything. But if they are willing to be rescued from the world unto God, God can work out His purpose on the earth to have His dwelling place. (Life-study of Exodus, msg. 18)
