February 13th, Exodus 33-36: Tent of Meeting and new stone tablets

Exodus 33 describes the “tent of meeting”, where Moses set a tent outside of camp to address those inquiring of the LORD. Moses then asks to see the face of God, but the LORD replies that Moses may only see his back, for those that see the fact of God cannot live.

In Exodus 34, the LORD commands Moses to chisel out two new stone tablets. The LORD revealed himself and added more instructions for His chosen people.

Exodus 34:6-7 says:
6 And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, 7 maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation.”

Moses assembles the whole Israelite community in Exodus 35. The skilled came to make their contributions, and the others bought what they could, i.e. acacia wood, onyx, linens, etc.

Then we learn that the Israelites have given more than enough at th beginning of Exodus 36.

Exodus 36:6-7 says:
6 Then Moses gave an order and they sent this word throughout the camp: “No man or woman is to make anything else as an offering for the sanctuary.” And so the people were restrained from bringing more, 7 because what they already had was more than enough to do all the work.

Question: Isn’t it awesome when a church gets together and donates more than enough for a cause?
