The Lord said to Moses, 2“Tell the Israelites to bring me an offering. You are to receive the offering for me from everyone whose heart prompts them to give. 3These are the offerings you are to receive from them: gold, silver and bronze; 4blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen; goat hair; 5ram skins dyed red and another type of durable leather; acacia wood; 6olive oil for the light; spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense; 7and onyx stones and other gems to be mounted on the ephod and breastpiece.  
8“Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them. 9Make this tabernacle and all its furnishings exactly like the pattern I will show you.
(Exodus 25:1-9, NIV)

Chapters 25-28 of Exodus are God’s detailed instructions for financing and constructing the tabernacle in great detail. Every aspect of the construction of the tabernacle is given to Moses in detail to be followed. On element of the tabernacle is the arc of the covenant. The arc is a chest where the two stone tablets containing the Ten Commandments were placed. Once constructed, it was never to be touched by human hands again. The consequence of touching the arc of the covenant was death. (See Exodus 25:10-22) (Exodus 25:1-28:43)

God’s love for you is free. You are free to choose to love God or not. Do you love God? One day all humanity will be required to answer this question. Godspeace!
