Recap: Chapter by Chapter in Exodus 39 to 40

Exodus 39 This part is eerily reminiscent of the poem of God's creation in Genesis, where God is said to have looked upon His creation and declared it good. In this chapter, Moses does this with the Tabernacle: 'And Moses saw all the work, and behold, they had done it; as Yahweh had commanded, so had they done it. Then Moses blessed them.' There is something about knowing that you have put in good work and been faithful to God, and it is a great feeling. Moses steps back and feels that, shares that, reflects on that to his people. The Tabernacle is finished.

Exodus 40 'So Moses finished the work.' The hard work was done by Bezalel and Oholiab, but Moses gets the honor of completing the Tabernacle. God blesses Moses with this. Why would He do that? Because it is God's choice - in every generation He raises up one man above all others and works through that individual in a special way. Prophets, Judges, Apostles, Abraham, Moses... all of them were individuals that God chose to work through and honor in a very special way. Moses is honored here, and he shows us that God raises someone up in every generation. Who is that person in your area? Is it your pastor? Is it an evangelist? Is it a mechanic? Is it you?
