Day 36 - Read Exodus 12

May 29, 2024 • Exodus 12

Moses and Aaron recognized Passover as God commanded. God instructed them to sacrifice an animal and prepare it for the meal. The lamb’s blood was applied to the doorposts of the houses. All firstborn in the land of Egypt would be killed, except those who had the blood applied to their doorposts. Anyone who disobeyed these commands were cut off from Israel. God applied the final plague against Egypt and Pharaoh. Pharaoh sent the people of Israel away with their cattle and with the jewelry they plundered from the Egyptians. The sacrifice and release of Israel foreshadowed the sacrifice of Jesus, and freedom from the bondage of sin.

June 12, 2024 • Exodus 37—38

The skilled men made the ark, the table, the lamp stand, the altar of burnt offering, the bronze basin, and the court according to the instructions given by the Lord. The gifts and offerings for the tabernacle were recorded as Moses instructed.

Day 49 - Read Exodus 35-36

June 11, 2024 • Exodus 35—36

The people gathered and Moses shared what the Lord commanded them to do. They were to work for six days, then honor the seventh day as a Sabbath of solemn rest, holy to the Lord. The offerings detailed by God to Moses were given by the people. All that was required was given for the building of the tabernacle. Those who were given skills and talents by the Lord to build the tabernacle were together, and they trained others to assist them in their tasks. Every detail was followed as God commanded in building the tabernacle.

Day 48 - Read Exodus 33-34

June 10, 2024 • Exodus 33—34

God said He would not go among His people because they did not yield to Him. The people were ordered to remove their ornaments, reflecting humility and mourning for the lack of God’s presence. Moses asked God to be with him and the people of Israel, and to allow him to see God’s glory. God passed by Moses while protecting him in the cleft of a rock. God sent Moses back to Mount Sinai with two tablets. He wrote His words on the tablets to replace the ones Moses broke. God renewed His covenant with Israel. Moses returned to the people and his face shined. Moses placed a veil over his face when he was not in the tent of meeting.
