THE ARTISANS FOR BUILDING THE TABERNACLE

Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:  “See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah.  And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,  to design artistic works, to work in gold, in silver, in bronze,  in cutting jewels for setting, in carving wood, and to work in all manner of workmanship. “And I, indeed I, have appointed with him Aholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and I have put wisdom in the hearts of all the gifted artisans, that they may make all that I have commanded you:  the tabernacle of meeting, the ark of the Testimony and the mercy seat that is on it, and all the furniture of the tabernacle—  the table and its utensils, the pure gold lampstand with all its utensils, the altar of incense,  the altar of burnt offering with all its utensils, and the laver and its base—  the garments of ministry, the holy garments for Aaron the priest and the garments of his sons, to minister as priests,  and the anointing oil and sweet incense for the holy place. According to all that I have commanded you they shall do.” (Exodus 31:1-11).

The above scripture confirms what the Lord spoke through Paul in Philippians 2:13 which says, ” For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.(KJV). The Lord after telling Moses all that are to be done to set up a Tabernacle for Him to dwell in, He did not stop there for them to figure it out, He also equipped the men that have been assigned for these job with His wisdom, understanding, and knowledge and also endowed them with ability to do everything He had commanded Moses to do. Is God not wonderful? What can man boast of? Whatever we know how to do, it is God doing it through us. He is the one that has made the world to be dependent on Him, because He knows what He wants to achieve by creating every individual. The world would have been a paradise as He originally planned it to be if devil had not messed it up. Every one of us would have  been doing things according to His will and according to His pleasure. Things would have turned out beautifully for all of us because He created us in His image and to fulfill His plan and purpose for mankind. The unfortunate part of the fall of man is that man now proclaims or exalts himself and glorify himself instead of glorifying God. Because of this, competition sets in, and each one now embarks upon the race of wanting to be better than another person. When it is not possible, anger, envy or jealousy sets in and murder follows. This is what John 10:10 a says, “The thief cometh not but to kill, to steal and to destroy” This is the fruit of the flesh. Once the flesh (darkness) sets in, the spirit (light) moves out.  Is it not in the Bible that “without Me you can do nothing”? Yes, Jesus is the vine and we are the branches, and as the branches are useless if they are cut off from the stem, so also we are useless without the Spirit of God in us. So all the technological advancement we have witnessed in our generation all came from God and you know what,  it is for the advancement of the gospel so that all nations can know that He is the Savior of the world. We are now living in a global village where the message of Jesus Christ can reach everyone, which was not possible before. He says the world will not come to an end until the message of Jesus Christ has reached every nook and corner of the world, so that no one will have any excuse that he did not hear the gospel.

This Daily Words of Wisdom that started in July last year was God’s doing and though I do not know the audience and how it is impacting their life, but one thing is certain, His purpose will be fulfilled in putting this message in this format out there. Some people will get to know that this Leadership site is there to bless them and will also introduce it to other people that are in need of the salvation of God. We are all God’s workmanship. Never boast in what you are able to do, but you can boast in what God is doing through you. He is the One working and He is still working and He will work until the whole world recognizes His sovereignty. May the Lord releases more of His wisdom, understanding and knowledge unto us so that we can continue to be a vessel of honor in His hand in Jesus Name, Amen. Be blessed!!!
