We’ve come to the end of Exodus, but we have a wonderful parting gift. The gift of the literal, tangible presence of the Lord.
Would you like that in your life? Let me share it with you…
Why does Exodus keep repeating itself??
Oh right, because the Lord wanted us to pay really close attention to this.

$350 million. That’s what I think the value of just the precious metals were for the tabernacle, not to mention the labor, the fine linens (that we will hear a lot about shortly).
The next several chapters may seem redundant, but never in history has such an important set of furniture come directly from the hand of God. When the Bible repeats itself like it has here in Exodus, we’d do well to pay attention.
Have you ever heard of a church that asked people to stop bringing donations because they had too much? Let me introduce you to Moses…
When the Bible repeats itself, it’s important for us to listen. God doesn’t waste words, so this chapter is special. We are going to see again all the articles that the Lord wants built for the tabernacle and the two men who are in charge of making it.

Today, Moses is going to have to chisel some new stone tablets for the Ten Commandments. Also, his face will literally shine after meeting with God. He will be a human light bulb.
Not only is Moses going to bargain with God, but he’s also going to make one of the most giant requests in the history of mankind.
And God said yes.
How angry do you have to be to break the most precious things ever held by human hands? Pretty angry.
How angry do you have to be to decide to kill an entire race of people and start over with the one good one of them? Pretty angry.
And we’re just getting started with this chapter.
Not only does God give us skill to work (although He gives varying abilities to different people), He also asks us to rest from the work those skills provide. And He takes that rest very seriously.
We’re talking about more smells, sights and sounds today. God enjoys them all.
