My Talent He Asks?

Moshe said to the whole community…, ‘ Here is what Adonai has ordered [Exodus 35:5-9]…then let all the craftsmen among you come and make everything Adonai has ordered [v.11-20]…and they came, everyone whose heart stirred him and everyone whose spirit made him willing…[v. 21b-29]”.

Bring what you have, your talents* and possessions, to Adonai. Behold what He makes out of them. He has given you your talents** and they do belong to Him [see the parable of the talents, Matthew 25:24, 25]!
*Talent: “Kikkar” from Kaw-rar,to dance or whirl, in a circle, in Hebrew; can be a round loaf, a morsel or round coin; is a circle or circumjacent tract or region; spiritually a talent ~ Messiah Y’shua Jesus, the Bread of Life, given freely to us, in His Spirit; freely given, freely receive and then give again; the more given, the more receive!
**As talents are used for Adonai, territory is bought or claimed or restored, from the enemy! Let us praise and sing in dance to Adonai, as in Moshe’s Song, Exodus 15!

Moshe said to the people of Israel, “SEE, Adonai has singled out B’tzal’el the son of Uri, the son of Hur [Ben Hur!], of the tribe of Y’hudah. HE has filled him with the Spirit of G-D!- with wisdom, understanding AND knowledge concerning every kind of artisanry. He is a master of design in gold, silver, bronze, cutting precious stones to be set, woodcarving and every other craft…[Exodus 35:30-35]!”

Adonai endowed them [gifted them] with wisdom and skill necessary to carry out the work needed, to do exactly according to everything HE ORDERED! HE orders the world and knows the needs…and gives us the talents to fulfill these needs. What an Almighty Elohim G-D we serve!
Moshe summoned the men and gave them from the voluntary offerings of the people what they needed to carry out the work! B’tzal’el made:
– the Tabernacle [v.8-13] of fine linen with yarns of blue, purple, scarlet and threads of hammered gold [fine linen~ purity of G-D; blue~ Heaven ; purple~Royalty of G-D ; scarlet~blood of Y’shua ; hammered gold~ us, hammered & cut/shaped by G-D into pure vessel for HIM!]
– the tent covering [v.14-18] in goat hair
– the tent covering [v.19] in ram skins and one in fine leather
– the planks [20 south & north, 6 in rear west, 8 in corners overlaid with gold, to support the tabernacle [v.23-30]
– the crossbars [v.31-34]5 each N, S, W
– the curtains [East] of blue, purple, scarlet and linen {East ~ eternity}
– the screen also E. of blue, purple, scarlet and finely woven linen for the entrance to tabernacle
– the ark [Ex.37:1-9] overlaid with gold, covered with the k’ruvim [the cherbim or angels of mercy]
– the table overlaid with gold, for gold dishes
– the menorah [lamp] of beaten piece of pure gold
– the altar to burn the incense [v.25-28]~ our prayers to the heavenlies go up as smoke
– the holy anointing oil for anointing the things of the tabernacle, and incense
– the altar for burnt offerings, with four horns

+ the wash basin of bronze “…from the mirrors of the women serving at the entrance of the tent of meeting [v. 8]!”

+ As we wash or immerse in the Name of Y’shua Jesus Christ the Messiah, we reflect on our sinful nature and see what G-D has done, as HE accepts the blood for atonement for our sins!+

– the courtyard, with tapestries of fine linen
– the screen for the Gate-way {Y’shua!} of blue, purple, scarlet and finely woven linen, 30 feet x 7.5 ft. [Ex.38:18]

And so was made all Adonai ordered Moshe to make. May we be so ‘ordered’ and be led by His Spirit to offer our own body to be that “living sacrifice” set apart and used for G-D!

I exhort you, therefore, brothers, in view of G-D’s mercies, to offer yourselves as a sacrifice, living and set apart for G-D. This will please him; it is the logical “Temple worship” for you [Romans 12:1]!

Shalom ! May Adonai bless you and keep you. May Adonai make His face shine on you & show His favor. May Adonai lift up His face toward you & give you peace! [Numbers 6:24-26] May He give you a hunger for His Word and draw you ever closer to His side! Ahmein…
