FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS “You shall also make curtains of goats’ hair, to be a tent over the tabernacle. You shall make eleven curtains. The length of each curtain shall be thirty cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits; and the eleven curtains shall all have the same measurements. And you shall couple five curtains by themselves and six curtains by themselves, and you shall double over the sixth curtain at the forefront of the tent. You shall make fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that is outermost in one set, and fifty loops on the edge of the curtain of the second set. And you shall make fifty bronze clasps, put the clasps into the loops, and couple the tent together, that it may be one. The remnant that remains of the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that remains, shall hang over the back of the tabernacle. And a cubit on one side and a cubit on the other side, of what remains of the length of the curtains of the tent, shall hang over the sides of the tabernacle, on this side and on that side, to cover it. - Exodus 26:7-13 . #thebookofexodus . "Therefore we said, ‘Let us now prepare to build ourselves an altar, not for burnt offering nor for sacrifice, but that it may be a witness between you and us and our generations after us, that we may perform the service of the Lord before Him with our burnt offerings, with our sacrifices, and with our peace offerings; that your descendants may not say to our descendants in time to come, “You have no part in the Lord.” Therefore we said that it will be, when they say this to us or to our generations in time to come, that we may say, ‘Here is the replica of the altar of the Lord which our fathers made, though not for burnt offerings nor for sacrifices; but it is a witness between you and us.’ " - Joshua 22:26-28 . And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. - Hebrews 9:15 . #lightinthedarkness

FORSAKEN NO MORE And you shall make loops of blue yarn on the edge of the CURTAIN on the selvedge of one set, and likewise you shall do on the outer edge of the other curtain of the second set. Fifty loops you shall make in the one curtain, and fifty loops you shall make on the edge of the curtain that is on the end of the second set, that the loops may be clasped to one another. And you shall make fifty clasps of gold, and couple the curtains together with the clasps, so that it may be one tabernacle. - Exodus 26:4-6 . #thebookofexodus . “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the CURTAINS of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed; neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame; for you will forget the shame of your youth, and will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore. For YOUR MAKER IS YOUR HUSBAND, the LORD OF HOSTS is His name; and your REDEEMER is the HOLY ONE of Israel; He is called the GOD OF THE WHOLE EARTH. For the Lord has called you like a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, like a youthful wife when you were refused,” says your God. “For a mere moment I have forsaken you, but with great mercies I will gather you. With a little wrath I hid My face from you for a moment; but with everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you,” says the Lord, your Redeemer. - Isaiah 54:2, 4-8. . Then he said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.” And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.” Now it was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. Then the sun was darkened, and the VEIL OF THE TEMPLE WAS TORN IN TWO. And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, ‘into Your hands I commit My spirit.’ ” Having said this, He breathed His last. So when the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God, saying, “Certainly this was a righteous Man!” - Luke 23:42-47

THE ARTISTS' HEARTS WERE STIRRED “Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine woven linen and blue, purple, and scarlet thread; with ARTISTIC designs of cherubim you shall weave them. The length of each curtain shall be twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits. And every one of the curtains shall have the same measurements. Five curtains shall be coupled to one another, and the other five curtains shall be coupled to one another." - Exodus 26:1-3 . #thebookofexodus . “And Bezalel and Aholiab, and every GIFTED ARTISAN in whom the Lord has put wisdom and understanding, to know how to do all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, shall do according to all that the Lord has commanded.” Then Moses called Bezalel and Aholiab, and EVERY GIFTED ARTISAN in whose heart the Lord had put wisdom, everyone whose HEART WAS STIRRED, to come and do the work. And they received from Moses all the offering which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of making the sanctuary. So they continued bringing to him freewill offerings every morning. Then all the craftsmen who were doing all the work of the sanctuary came, each from the work he was doing, and they spoke to Moses, saying, “The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work which the Lord commanded us to do.” So Moses gave a commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, “Let neither man nor woman do any more work for the offering of the sanctuary.” And the people were restrained from bringing, for the material they had was sufficient for all the work to be done—indeed TOO MUCH. - Exodus 36:1-7 . For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, BEING FRUITFUL IN EVERY GOOD WORK and increasing in the knowledge of God; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. - Colossians 1:9-10, 12 . #creatorofheavenandearth #godlovesacheerfulgiver

You need:

HOMEMADE YOGURT You need: 3 quart pan candy thermometer measuring cup (4 cup measure) measuring spoon (Tablespoon) flat edged stirring spoon or spatula Yogurt maker or large mouth thermos (Or another option to keep liquid at 100 degrees for 6 to 8 hours. I know someone who put canning jars in water in the oven at bread proof setting. Also, check if a crock pot on warm with water is at 100 degrees. Putting the jars in water would help keep a more constant temperature.) Tom gave me a yogurt maker shortly after we were married, as I was using a thermos. I am still using the same one for nearly 40 years. . 3 Tablespoons yogurt culture (I started with Dannon plain yogurt, but have used my own culture for years. This will last for several weeks in the refrigerator.) 2 cups dry powdered milk 4 cups liquid milk (optional: plus 1/2 cup cream, for a rich, creamy, freezable yogurt) . Measure dry and liquid milk into pan, stir. Clean and dry 4 cup measure; add 3 T plain yogurt to bring to room temperature; stir until smooth; set aside. Stir and heat milk to 180 degrees, over medium-low heat, stirring regularly. This kills the bad bacteria. Do not boil or scum will form. Remove from heat. Watch closely and stir frequently to cool to 100 degrees. Pour about a cup of milk into yogurt culture. If too hot, the good yogurt bacteria will die. Stir until blended. Pour back into pan of the remaining milk to dissolve. I pour this liquid back into the measure to distribute to jars. Immediately pour into jars or thermos to set for 6-8 hours. Check to see if yogurt has solidified before putting in the refrigerator. If not, warm to 100 degrees and reset. Keep at least 3 Tablespoons for the next batch. Note: Too much culture is worse than not enough culture. . #homemade #yogurt #wemakeourown #fromgrandmaskitchen #recipe #addfruit #keepitsimple #youcandoit #homemadejam #mothersrecipe #sweetorsavory #tzatzikisauce #gyros #cucumbersalad #greekyogurt #familyfavorite #madefromscratch #frozenyogurt #yogurtandjam #yogurtandberries #gyrosandwich #dippingsauce

UNCONDITIONAL OBEDIENCE And you shall make the poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold, that the table may be carried with them. You shall make its dishes, its pans, its pitchers, and its bowls for pouring. You shall make them of pure gold. And you shall set the SHOWBREAD on the table before Me always. - Exodus 25:28-30 #thebookofexodus . Now David came to Nob, to Ahimelech the priest. And Ahimelech was afraid when he met David, and said to him, “Why are you alone, and no one is with you?” And the priest answered David and said, “There is no common bread on hand; but there is holy bread, if the young men have at least kept themselves from women.” So the priest gave him holy bread; for there was no bread there but the SHOWBREAD which had been taken from before the Lord, in order to put hot bread in its place on the day when it was taken away. - 1 Samuel 21:1,4,6 . At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. And His disciples were hungry, and began to pluck heads of grain and to eat. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to Him, “Look, Your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath!” But He said to them, “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him: how he entered the house of God and ate the SHOWBREAD which was not lawful for him to eat, nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests? Yet I say to you that in this place there is One greater than the temple. But if you had known what this means, ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless. For the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.” - Matthew 12:1-4,6-8 . "Why then did you not obey the voice of the Lord? Why did you swoop down on the spoil, and do evil in the sight of the Lord?” So Samuel said: “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.” - 1 Samuel 15:19,22-23

So He drove out the man; and He placed CHERUBIM at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life. - Genesis 3:22-24 . Then indeed, even the first covenant had ordinances of divine service and the earthly sanctuary. For a tabernacle was prepared: the first part, in which was the lampstand, the table, and the showbread, which is called the sanctuary; and behind the second veil, the part of the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of All, which had the golden censer and the ark of the covenant overlaid on all sides with gold, in which were the golden pot that had the manna, Aaron’s rod that budded, and the tablets of the covenant; and above it were the CHERUBIM of glory overshadowing the mercy seat.

You shall put in it the ARK OF THE TESTIMONY, and partition off the ark with the VEIL. - Exodus 40:1-3 . Moses took his tent and pitched it outside the camp, far from the camp, and called it the TABERNACLE OF MEETING. And it came to pass that everyone who sought the Lord went out to the tabernacle of meeting which was outside the camp. So it was, whenever Moses went out to the tabernacle, that all the people rose, and each man stood at his tent door and watched Moses until he had gone into the tabernacle. So the LORD SPOKE TO MOSES FACE TO FACE, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle. - Exodus 33:7-8, 11 . Then indeed, even the first covenant had ordinances of divine service and the earthly sanctuary. For a TABERNACLE was prepared: the first part, in which was the lampstand, the table, and the showbread, which is called the sanctuary; and behind the second VEIL, the part of the tabernacle which is called the HOLY OF HOLIES, and above it were the cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat. Of these things we cannot now speak in detail. But into the second part the high priest went alone once a year, not without blood, which he offered for himself and for the people’s sins committed in ignorance; the Holy Spirit indicating this, that the way into the HOLY OF HOLIES was not yet made manifest while the first tabernacle was still standing. - Hebrews 9:1-3, 5, 7-8 . #newcovenant #lambofgod #sonofgod #takesawaythesinsoftheworld

And you shall overlay it with pure GOLD, inside and out you shall overlay it, and shall make on it a molding of gold all around. You shall cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in its four corners; two rings shall be on one side, and two rings on the other side.

And all the kings of the earth sought the presence of Solomon to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart. Each man brought his present: articles of silver and GOLD, garments, armor, spices, horses, and mules, at a set rate year by year. - 2 Chronicles 9:22-24 . Therefore I love Your commandments more than GOLD, yes, than fine gold! - Psalm 119:127 . How much better to get WISDOM than GOLD! And to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver. - Proverbs 16:16 . And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Also she had a GREAT AND HIGH WALL with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. And he who talked with me had a GOLD reed to measure the city, its gates, and its wall. The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it.

And let them make Me a SANCTUARY, that I may dwell among them.

Therefore arise and build the SANCTUARY of the Lord God, to bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord and the holy articles of God into the house that is to be built for the name of the Lord.” - 1 Chronicles 22:19 . Behold, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord, who by night stand in the house of the Lord! Lift up your hands in the SANCTUARY, and bless the Lord. The Lord who made heaven and earth Bless you from Zion! - Psalm 134:1-3 . Then indeed, even the FIRST COVENANT had ordinances of divine service and the EARTHLY SANCTUARY. But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation. And for this reason He is the Mediator of the NEW COVENANT, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us...so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation. - Hebrews 9:1, 11, 15, 24, 28 . #newheaven #newearth

WE REAP WHAT WE SOW Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to the children of Israel, that they bring Me an offering. From everyone who gives it WILLINGLY WITH HIS HEART you shall take My offering." - Exodus 25:1-2 . #thebookofexodus . Then the people rejoiced, for they had OFFERED WILLINGLY, because with a LOYAL HEART they had offered willingly to the Lord; and King David also rejoiced greatly. - 1 Chronicles 29:9 . But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he PURPOSES IN HIS HEART, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the FRUITS OF YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS, while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God. - 2 Corinthians 9:6-8,10-11 . Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. - Galatians 6:7-9 . #godseestheheart #godlovesacheerfulgiver #fruitsofrighteousness
