15 “You shall make upright frames for the tabernacle of acacia wood. 16 Ten cubits shall be the length of a frame, and a cubit and a half the breadth of each frame. 17 There shall be two tenons in each frame, for fitting together. So shall you do for all the frames of the tabernacle. 18 You shall make the frames for the tabernacle: twenty frames for the south side; 19 and forty bases of silver you shall make under the twenty frames, two bases under one frame for its two tenons, and two bases under the next frame for its two tenons; 20 and for the second side of the tabernacle, on the north side twenty frames, 21 and their forty bases of silver, two bases under one frame, and two bases under the next frame. 22 And for the rear of the tabernacle westward you shall make six frames. 23 And you shall make two frames for corners of the tabernacle in the rear; 24 they shall be separate beneath, but joined at the top, at the first ring. Thus shall it be with both of them; they shall form the two corners. 25 And there shall be eight frames, with their bases of silver, sixteen bases; two bases under one frame, and two bases under another frame.
26 “You shall make bars of acacia wood, five for the frames of the one side of the tabernacle, 27 and five bars for the frames of the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the frames of the side of the tabernacle at the rear westward. 28 The middle bar, halfway up the frames, shall run from end to end. 29 You shall overlay the frames with gold and shall make their rings of gold for holders for the bars, and you shall overlay the bars with gold.
Can you imagine the beauty of this temple and the furnishings? How much more beautiful will heaven be? They were limited to things of this earth, but heaven will be beyond what we can imagine because it will be made of things we haven’t yet seen. I can’t wait to see His majesty and the home He has prepared for me. I believe His promise and I pray that you too will join me in heaven one day. If you are not certain of this promise, spend time today praying for redemption in Jesus and reach out to the ministry team if you are not certain of your salvation. One of us would love to talk with you. Call or text us at: 918-344-5656 and we will respond as quickly as possible.
Heavenly Father, I imagine this beautiful and colorful structure in the middle of the wilderness seemed to be out of place, but as beautiful as it was, nothing on this earth is good enough to be Your home. I am so grateful that You are willing to do all You did in order to have a relationship with me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I am so very grateful. Thank You for Your love, forgiveness, encouragement, discipline, peace, comfort, and redemption.
In Jesus’ name.
