Are we listening to God? Let's go to Exodus 33:9 meant "Miracles" Miracles in the Upper Region & In The Atmosphere
Exodus 33:10 meant Prayer - Postures - Standing.
I removed this article from Authors Den after I placed it up this week and later I found out it was a popular article so I placed it back up...I am sorry. The deacon mentioned (Kevin) and I once served as Ushers at the same church. He is now an Associate Minister. He did preach a dynamic sermon sunday and after service he told me I/we were waiting for you to walk down the aisle......... Did God Speak To The Nations February 26, 2003 was written by myself "Angelique Watkins" 4 years ago. Are we listening to God? I paid very close attention yesterday evening at leadership class. And I also paid very close attention to a cartoon - animated picture on TV last night. I want to share two things for now and below I will share from my notes from class. 1. When one of the men which is Chariman of Deacon Board(younger than me) shared the following at leadership class: He shared with us that he was at home yesterday and he just happened to watch the soap operas something that he don't do, but for some reason on this soap opera they were talking about and showing one of the characters had died and went to heaven, and the focus was on ENTER THE GATES. I do believe that Kevin told us the one that had died was named LUKE He told us it just caught his attention for that was the title of our Leadership Lesson and he began to watch it and he thought woww!!! Now keep in mind, I just wonder how many countries, cities and nations did pick up and did show this soap opera? 2. Last night I was watching Bobby Hill on TV: cartoon -- animated picture. This really caught my eyes his mother had painted CLOUDS on his room wall, now I have seen this picture before but last night I began to see something different; my mind went back to my study on the Tabernacle. Then the daddy did not like the wall painted with the clouds so he began to take the paint brush and cover up just a small partion of the wall. Everytime Bobby Hill would began to ask questions the daddy would ask don't you have homework to do? And the child said No. Then the daddy asked don't you have sunday school homework to do? Ok, again I heard the word "MIRACLE" and Bobby Hill was reading from the scriptures about Jesus and I think the wedding at Cana. Now keep in mind, I just wonder how many countries, cities and nations did pick up and show as well? Some might be saying Oh, Angela that is just another coincident. "My Notes From Class Friday 27, 2003" ENTER HIS GATE WHAT GATE GOD's GATE How can sinful man approach God? REPENT OUR PASTOR ASKS? IF everyone that came to church was seeking the LORD? QUESTION TO BREAK THE ICE: If you went blind at this moment what would you miss? (You do not have to share the answer with me) Let's go to Exodus 25:8-9 MAKE A SANCUTARY according to HIS PATTERN. Make God a Sancutary that HE may dwell among them according to what GOD SHOW. verse 8...And let them make me a sancturary; that I may dwell among them. verse 9...According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof even so shall ye make it. Let's go to John 5:46 MOSES wrote of JESUS: if ye would have believed MOSES you believed JESUS. SCRIPTURE --- THE STANDARD OF THE TRUTH verse 46...For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. Why would you think it was important to GOD to have a fence of the Tabernacle? Why a fence? Let's go to Isaiah 59:2 MY/OUR SINS HAVE SEPARATED US FROM GOD: MY SINS HAVE HID GOD'S FACE FROM ME. THE PRAYER OF THE WICKED NOT HEARD. But your inquities have separated you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. Let's go to Exodus 33:17 MOSES HAD BEEN OBEDIENT TO GOD'S WORD And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Different ones was sharing and I did not say anything for I was listening and taking some notes: I do not like for other people to think that I think that I know it all. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ So I felt the time did come for me to share and I raised my hand and I said I do not know whether what I am going to stay fit in here bit if it don't I am sorry so I began to share: I STARTED OFF saying I heard what KEVIN (YOUNGER DEACON-CHAIRMAN OF DEACON BOARD) said....now it could have been possible for nations to hear this as well. THEN I SAID LET'S GO TO EXODUS 33:7 - 10 and I began to share that THE TABERNACLE TO MY UNDERSTANDING WAS THE dwelling or headquarters of Moses, and the place where the public business of the nation was transacted. I also told them that Exodus 33:7-10 meant "Reference to the Tabernacle" Sacred Places, The Tabernacle Set up. Exodus 33:9 meant "Miracles" Miracles in the Upper Region & In The Atmosphere Exodus 33:10 meant Prayer - Postures - Standing. And my Pastor never once said I was wrong... SOMETHING I CIRCLED IN MY WORK BOOK AND MADE NOTES IN MY WORKBOOK BUT I DID NOT SHARE with anyone until now: It made me think about a lady I know in Israel when I saw the picture and Word Study on Tabernacle. MISHKAN "Tabernacle"...and in my workbook above the picture I wrote in Israel and S.A. now S A does not stand for South America but for some reason me mind went to Saudi Arabia for this is how the lady in Israel caught my attention she shared an article about Saudi Arabia. Let's go to John 10:9 Jesus is the door, if any man enter in he shall be saved, shall go in and out and find pasture. Jesus: Shepherd of the Sheep. verse 9...I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. Now let's deal with the old phrase that many people have heard if they watched cowboy pictures before "Go west, young man!" With the gate to the Tabernacle being on the east side, to go east would be to move away from God and to go West would be to move toward HIM. The east wind was an ill wind of bad tidings(Scriptures on east: Genesis 3:24, Genesis 4:16, Genesis 16:12, I Kings 11:7, Isaiah 2:6). Let's go to Exodus 27:1-8: THE BRONZE ALTAR I am only going to write out Exodus 27:8. GOD REMINDS MOSES "as it was shown to you in the mountain, so they shall make it." Hollow with boards shalt thou make it: as it was shewed thee in the mount, so shall they make it. Exodus 27:1: Dimensions Exodus 27:2, 4, 5, 8: Its Construction Exodus 27:6, 7: Its Staves and Rings Exodus 27:3: Its Utensils The bronze altar: Once those who would worship God had entered into a relationship with HIM by divinely appoint way, the gate, the first item they would encounter/see was the bronze altar. Let's go to Exodus 30:17-21 Speakers and Hearers. The LORD spoke to Moses. The Laver in the Court made of brass, foot of brass. When they go up into the temple they shall wash with water, wash their hands and feet. JESUS CHRIST IS THE LIVING WATER verse 17...And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, verse 18...Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and his foot also of brass, to wash withal: and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein.
