Never forget one time when I wassingle doing my own lundry trying to save sometime. I wached some things together that Iprobably shouldn't have. I was trying to save some time. I throueverything and I knew that hot water...

...would get stings out quicker thananything, and I had a white shirt that I had that had staines on it, and so Ithrew this ote shirt in the washing machine and I threw a red shirt in theearthwhale and I watched Jom Stucke in that wash machine and as soon as theyfinished washing, I wet to put hem in the Dryer, and I noticed my white sirewas no longer white. It had become pink a pink T, shirt fora single man, not something that single man would be wearing around a lot,especially in the nints but yeah. I I had that and I learned a very importantlesson there that there are times when you need to keep some things set so lets en that God will be teachingthe children of Israel hear the old testment at there are times an we haveto keep things...

Sepera we're to be SEI'm woing to bereading, we're making our way through ACTIDIS whe're. In chapters twenty five,though thwusend and seven I'm going to read chapter twenty seven versus ninethrough nineteen, you shall make the court of theTATERNACLE. On the South side, there shall be hangings for the Court of fivetwisted curtains or linen one hundred cubins Wolln for one side and itspillars shall be twenty Cubans, with their twenty sockets of Bros and thossof the pillers in their bands shall be of silver. Likewise, for the north,Sidin Le There Sol be hangings, one hundred cubins long and its fillerstwinning, with twenty sockets of ROMs and thoses of the billars ind, theirmans silver and for the Whit of the Currin on the webside she'll, behantings of fifty cubins with their tin...

...fiellers in their tin sockets, the windof the court on the east side, fifty cubins nether hanging on one side ofthe gate, fifteen cubics with three dords and theire three sockets and forthe other side, shall be aims of fifteen cubics, with three billars andthree sockes for the gate of the court. There should be a screen of twentycubits of blue and purple and scarted materia and fine twisted liven the work over weaver with their fourbuilders and their forsankis. All the builders around the court shall befurnished with silver bands with their hooks of silver and their suctits ofbroads n. The length of the court shall be one hundred Cubans and the Wa offifty thorou and the Hihe five cubits of fine twisted Liv and their sockersof bronxe. All the attensies of the TOMERNAC are used t all on service, allof its bags and all F, the pegs of the court shall be abroad.

Well, you read that Andgowell didn'tthat just bless you wat! What why did God include this? Imean this isn't Jon Three. Sixteen that just inspires us. Why is he telling usabout how long how why? How the link the with of this TATERC there's a lesson here, God's teaching that this Tabernacle were God's people would come to worshipwas to have an outer curtain separating them from the outside world inside this Tarranacle, which is reallyinteresting. There would be this location for the wors. The worship place itself that would beinsight. This...

...elder Tabinaa court. There would bethis inner tabernatal place of wort. It is interesting to me that the Heigheof the curtain outside the walls was five cubits, but earlier in the book of Exodus, theheight of the Taternaccurat set, not the outer walls of the TABENAC, but theTavarnat Wenself, where the worship would take place, is tin, pubins, an otherwoards, thecurtain Aroun, the outer walls of the DABERNACLE is seven and a half feettall, but the taernaculitself where theworship takes place is fifteen feed tall wo. What's the purpose of that, it appears that God was teaching hischildren that, in order to have pure...

...worship, they must separate themselves from theoutside. They were to be separating themselves from the outside. Thus, as they entered into the olt courtyard,where no one believeit would be no, not yo could go, they were to cease looking at the worldaround them. Well, they lived in the world when theycame into. Worship was God they were to stop focusing all theworld the world and its temptations were to be out of sight to the Jew who was coming to WorshalGod. In other words, the Jew was to...

...separate himself from the outside. He walked into this outer court andonce he walks into the oucourt those curns kept him from seeing norl. He wasSecren now from the world to worship, God and pure it and Hols. But why was the Tabernapcle viewable to the outside mor? Why was the holy place seen by theoutside rom? Why could the outside world look overthe seven and a Half Foot curtains and see the holy place, which was Fitiv? It appears that the outer cours the curns were there to make it clear.The outside world is off limits, while...

...you worship Gon, however, God still desired, that the outsideworld peope would be curious about hem, it's human nature, to Wank what wecannot have. I remember when I was a wave and Marrie and therewas a sign on the grass that said, do not walk on the grass now as walkingdown the sidewalk at the time and Don' just be honest with you, I was nevertempted to walk on the grass until I saw the sid, but the moment I saw the sigme. Iwanted to walk on the grass that human nature to want. What wecannot have. God knows that that's that twistednature with his and God uses that twisted nature to point to himself.

He knows the outside world to the Jews.They couldn't come here and yet he wanted them to see the the place he well to say, Hu. I know I can't have that,but I won't that I want to see it. I want to know,what's going on this desire to have what we could Noav such a sid with the accompany you can'tcome in, would have tempted the outsiderscuriosity. Maybe I do want to become of you. Maybe I do want to see what they ave. maybe I am tempted to look at that.Perhaps it was intentional. Perhaps it was God's way of tempting the outside world, if youwill to desire God or creating...

...something. Another way to look at then would cause them to want what theydon't have, the God of Israelperhaps. This was part of God's pursuit of those Rols. Perhaps it was God andthe Hound of Heaven coming after those who were Jews and so do with us. We are not of this world weare in this world. It's obvious that wear this world.However, Jesus tells us that when we follow him, we are no longer of thisworld. John Seventeen Christians seemed to make two mistakeswhen they lived their lifes that they made mistanes. But in this roam theyseemed to make to mistake. So look like speak like an act like Tor.

You know some Christians in your life and you watch the way they live andthere 's no difference between the way they live. andthey sail like the world.They look like the world. They act like the world. There's really no difference.That's a mistake for Christians there's to be aseparateness, we're not to be like this world. We are to be SEPARA, we're to bewholy, UNDO, nod, there's to be a separateness, but the other mistateChristians made istrer move himself so far from the world that they have no testimal. They have no friends to share Christwith it or alls. They have no acquaintances. They are all they're,almost like a monk in a monastery they're so remote from the world thatthere's no way they can reach thealthe two mistakes. Christians may look likethe world, that's all to remove...

...yourself so that you have no influenceto the world. That's wrong. Also, here the pages of Old Teste here inlavidicus by just the building of the Tabadach, God is teaching us. You come an a worsil to him you're to be whol. Secondly, there should be something inour lives that draws lost people too. We are to be like yes, we orghet tohave a different world and follow after Christ. However, we must havefriendships with others who don't know, Jesus desiring that perhaps in our lives they might see. SOMEG bauflthey might see so that God isusing to attract something desire. God no longer dwells in the art of theGun,...

God no longer dwells in a a wooden box covered and go in a tabernaple or in t e temple. No,No God wells an God dwells it me. We are that lit as to attract people toYoui, shall strive to keep the purit of the dwelling place of God, but alsoI shall strive to witness to others. I hope you will al today. You'll say I want to keepthat purity of the dwelling place of God. However, I also won't Bek dwellingplace to be lifted up so that others can see it so thatothers can see that light in me, and I can share the do while keeping myselfpure Unde God what I great greatless...

...from the pages of Scriptr well, ourreading tomorrow is going to be exitis chapter twentyeight through thirty one.I wantto encourage you to go ahead and read up only the womin close us in aword of prayer. Father Again, we thank you for these wonderful lessons. You'reteaching us, as we make our way through the book of Actide, seeing Moses,seeing you deliverd Hem, seeing how you're taking them out of Egypt Hem moving them towardsthe promisedland, and now today we see you giving them instructions on theTabernacle and the building on which to worship you as they travel towards thepromise land. The pray Yo'll continue to teach us and help us to be wholly unto you to be separatefrom the world, but at the same time be alight under the world.
