|In a previous post, when studying the Book of James,|
I posted "OUR GENEROUS GOD"
as one of the Names of God on Rocks.
|In continuing my effort this year to read|
through the Bible in "The Message" translation,
I was amazed to see what an active part the Holy Spirit
played in the Book of Exodus in constructing the Tabernacle....
or as it calls it in The Message,
"The Tent of Meeting" for God.
"God spoke to Moses:
'See what I've done; I've personally chosen Bezalel...
I've filled him with the Spirit of God,
giving him skill and know-how
and expertise in every kind of craft
to create designs and work in gold, silver, and bronze;
to cut and set gemstones;
to carve wood---he's an all-around craftsman."
Exodus 31:1-5 The Message
But don't feel left out!
God also pours out His gifts on us through the Spirit today!
Here's what the Apostle Paul said about it:
"Just think---you don't need a thing,
you've got it all!
All God's gifts are right in front of you
as you wait expectantly for our Master Jesus to arrive on the scene for the Finale.
And not only that, but God Himself is right alongside
to keep you steady and on track
until things are all wrapped up by Jesus.
God, who got you started in this spiritual adventure,
shares with us the life of His Son and our Master Jesus.
He will never give up on you.
Never forget that."
1 Corinthians 1:7-9 The Message
