Numbers 7

And it came to pass on the day that Moses had fully set up the tabernacle, and had anointed it, and sanctified it, and all the instruments thereof, both the altar and all the vessels thereof, and had anointed them, and sanctified them;

That the princes of Israel, heads of the house of their fathers, who were the princes of the tribes, and were over them that were numbered, offered:

And they brought their offering before the Lord, six covered wagons, and twelve oxen; a wagon for two of the princes, and for each one an ox: and they brought them before the tabernacle.

And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

Take it of them, that they may be to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation; and thou shalt give them unto the Levites, to every man according to his service.

And Moses took the wagons and the oxen, and gave them unto the Levites.

Two wagons and four oxen he gave unto the sons of Gershon, according to their service:

And four wagons and eight oxen he gave unto the sons of Merari, according unto their service, under the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.

But unto the sons of Kohath he gave none: because the service of the sanctuary belonging unto them was that they should bear upon their shoulders.

10 And the princes offered for dedicating of the altar in the day that it was anointed, even the princes offered their offering before the altar.

11 And the Lord said unto Moses, They shall offer their offering, each prince on his day, for the dedicating of the altar.

12 And he that offered his offering the first day was Nahshon the son of Amminadab, of the tribe of Judah:

14 One spoon of ten shekels of gold, full of incense:

15 One young bullock, one ram, one lamb of the first year, for a burnt offering:

  1. 84This was the dedication of the altar, in the day when it was anointed, by the princes of Israel: twelve chargers of silver, twelve silver bowls, twelve spoons of gold: 85Each charger of silver weighing an hundred and thirty shekels, each bowl seventy: all the silver vessels weighed two thousand and four hundred shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary: 86The golden spoons were twelve, full of incense, weighing ten shekels apiece, after the shekel of the sanctuary: all the gold of the spoons was an hundred and twenty shekels. 87All the oxen for the burnt offering were twelve bullocks, the rams twelve, the lambs of the first year twelve, with their meat offering: and the kids of the goats for sin offering twelve. 88And all the oxen for the sacrifice of the peace offerings were twenty and four bullocks, the rams sixty, the he goats sixty, the lambs of the first year sixty. This was the dedication of the altar, after that it was anointed.

    This was the ceremonial anointing and dedication of the tabernacle and most of all the altar. During the twelve days the princes of Israel gave unto the Lord. Through the dedication of the altar, the Lord then came down upon the mercy seat upon the ark of the covenant. Moses through the obedience of the Lord pleased the Lord by sanctification and dedication of the altar. The importance of the altar in our lives allow us each day to bring ourselves to God and give him what we have. We find the presence of God when we dedicate the altar to service of the kingdom. We have to constantly repair and rededicate our altar to God so that when we approach the throne we can find God. When we obey the commandments of the Lord we will see the kingdom unfold in our everyday lives.

    When we dedicate our altars and keep them sanctified we will live Jesus so that when we go out among those that we exposed to, we can give them Jesus.

  2. Presenting our best our offering to the Lord

    Whenever Moses went into the Tabernacle to speak with the Lord , he heard the voice speaking to him from between the two cherubim above the Ark’s cover—the place of atonement—that rests on the Ark of the Covenant. The Lord spoke to him from there.

  3. “And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.”

    Nice little read this morning.
    That brought quite the offerings to the altar. No one brought anything greater no one brought anything less, they just brought it all to the altar then the Lord spoke to moses from the mercy seat.
    When we bring it all to the table God shows up and let’s you know what’s going down. That’s all we can do, bring it all to God and wait on the Lord.

  4. Numbers 7: 89 [ Amp] And when Moses went into the Tent of Meeting to speak with the Lord , he hears the voice speaking to him from above the mercy seat that was upon the ark of the Testimony from between the two cherubim; and He spoke to
    [ Moses]. Be like Moses to hear and listen to God’s voice . Take to our altar with Prayer and Praise. Make sure our altars are clean and Holy before presence of the Lord. Praise God. Have a Bless Day!

  5. 89 And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.

    The more we sacrifice for the Lord, the more he will speak to us and guide us to do more for him.

  6. 1 And it came to pass on the day that Moses had fully set up the tabernacle, and had anointed it, and sanctified it, and all the instruments thereof, both the altar and all the vessels thereof, and had anointed them, and sanctified them;

    2 That the princes of Israel, heads of the house of their fathers, who were the princes of the tribes, and were over them that were numbered, offered:

    3 And they brought their offering before the Lord, six covered wagons, and twelve oxen; a wagon for two of the princes, and for each one an ox: and they brought them before the tabernacle.

    4 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

    5 Take it of them, that they may be to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation; and thou shalt give them unto the Levites, to every man according to his service.

    We should keep our altars pure and holy, acceptable to the House of God.

  7. 12 And he that offered his offering the first day was Nahshon the son of Amminadab, of the tribe of Judah:

    Praise FIRST!!! I remember like today one of the best lessons I heard in prayer was the order in which we should pray. She told us Praise First!!! No one like a needy person, don’t go straight to what you need, we should let Him know how much He is lives and adored!!! Show Him humility, get in a position of reverence, sacrifice the flesh, when you are finally in His presence love Him some more. Daddy’s love to be loved, then show Him your need, He already knows but He said ASK AND YE SHALL RECEIVE! Then, worship and praise in gratefulness of what He will do. Oh what a lovely way to know that He Can and He Will!!! Thank you Jesus for All you have done and for All you will do!!! You are AWESOME!!!

  8. We should go to our altar everyday and give our sacrifice to the Lord. God should be first and foremost in our daily walk. Thank you Jesus for your word

  9. Verse 89 MSG “When Moses entered the Tent of Meeting to speak with God, he heard the Voice speaking to him from between the two angel-cherubim above the Atonement-Cover on the Chest of The Testimony. He spoke with him.” Do you hear the Voice? Proverbs 3:6 MSG says “Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track.”

  10. 89 And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him

    Never underestimate obedience and sacrifice and God’s response. Sometimes we feel like we are giving everything we have and God is not answering but most of the time it’s because he’s just being quiet. God will always honor what we do and when we sacrifice. He will always know the cost it took and will always respond to our prayers appropriately. But ultimately it’s about us giving up our will to focus on his. God may require different things of us at different times and in different parts but it’s all a part of his whole plan.

  11. And all the oxen for the sacrifice of the peace offerings were twenty and four bullocks, the rams sixty, the he goats sixty, the lambs of the first year sixty. This was the dedication of the altar, after that it was anointed. And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.
    Numbers 7:88‭-‬89 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/num.7.88-89.KJV

    No matter how big or small God remembers our offerings. He knows our heart when we bring everything we can before Him. As long as we keep His statutes and His instruction He honors our dedication when we make room for the altar in our lives.

  12. Numbers 7:12, “And he that offered his offering the first day was Nahshon the son of Amminadab, of the tribe of Judah.”

    The first one to bring his offering was Nahshon, of the tribe of Judah, the tribe of PRAISE.
    Every morning, when we bring our offering to God, the first thing we should do is begin with PRAISE, be Thankful unto Him, and Bless His Name, JESUS.

    Psalms 100:4-5
    4) Enter into His gates with Thanksgiving, and into His courts with PRAISE: be Thankful unto Him, and Bless His Name.
    5) For the LORD Is Good;…

  13. 89. And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.

    Moses went in to speak with Him…we are often guilty of only speaking to Him, not waiting for an answer or allowing for two-way communication.

  14. 89 And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.

    The people of God need leadership, leadership that hears the voice of God and recognizes it.

    Thankful for pastor and sis Watts and a leadership team that is sensitive to the voice of God!

  15. Numbers 7
    New International Version
    When the altar was anointed, the leaders brought their offerings for its dedication and presented them before the altar.

    I’m so thankful for the power source of getting into the presence of God ….I awaken this morning to my phone not charged , my I pad battery 1% I quickly read my scriptures but not able to blog . I couldn’t find a cord that was working for some reason so I quickly dressed and knew that I could get in my car and there I would find the power source that would recharge my phone. Sounds like I need to purchase a cord that is working. Thankfully Jesus Christ purchased with His precious blood salvation for us that we now can go right before the throne of God. The alter was a place of dedication. I may relatively go to the alter daily but am I fully bringing my offering of dedication or is it just plug me in for a brief battery charge to just say I was at the alter. Dedication takes consecration and consecration takes discipline and sacrifice. My altar can not be just a brief encounter or in today’s terms a snap chat …I must fully come into His presence. I might have to get a new position of prayer or find a place of solitude away from the norm to fully recharge spiritually. I was trying every source I could this morning to charge my phone but to no avail. His peace fully saturates is if we will fully plug into the POWER SOURCE. Ironically I even tried a power pack battery I had recently been blessed with . Guess what it was not charged . I cannot be dependent on anyone else’s prayer charge . Oh don’t get me wrong we definitely need each other and we need to pray together where two or three agree in His name yet when I walk away from that prayer meeting I still must take with me a fully charged battery.
    Altar yes dedication yes sacrifice yes determination to stay long enough and to be sure I’m plugged into HIS Source completely. Oh what a difference when we have been before the throne of God truly without distractions and interruptions fully charged equipped to share with this world Gods Power . Thank you for the altar Thank you Jesus for being everything I could ever need! Your blood was more than enough and I thank You Jesus for always being there .

    Amen

  16. Moses who is very holy speaks to God and God speaks back to him. Some people never hear from our Lord. You must be obedient and faithful and God WILL speak to you!

  17. 89 And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.

    When we sacrifice, God speaks. We must daily come to the altar, daily come before God to repent, repair, sacrifice, and receive fresh anointing. In order to Live Jesus and Give Jesus, we must daily prepare ourselves at the altar and then heed the Word that He speaks.

  18. Moses didn’t give any to the Kohathites because they had to carry the holy things for which they were responsible on their shoulders.

    Why does God allow such burdens? Why could this group not use oxen and carts? I understand the Holy Things were to be carried in reverence and it was an honor to be a part of this group. My questions are more for today; why must we carry such heavy burdens? It’s a fair question. He knows everything and is all-powerful, so he could easily have prevented the problems. At the very least, we think, he could intervene and fix them. Why not? Why does God allow such weighty burdens in our lives?

    Relationship.

    We should never bear the burdens of sin or doubt, but there are some burdens placed on us by God which He does not intend to lift off. God wants us to communicate with Him— and to “cast our burden, on the Lord….” When we set out to serve God and do His work but get out of touch with Him, the sense of responsibility we feel will be overwhelming and defeating. But if we will only talk to God the burdens, He will take away that immense feeling of responsibility, replacing it with an awareness and understanding of Himself and His presence.

    Consider the old hymn:

    What a Friend we have in Jesus,
    All our sins and griefs to bear!
    What a privilege to carry
    Everything to God in prayer!
    O what peace we often forfeit,
    O what needless pain we bear,
    All because we do not carry
    Everything to God in prayer!

    Have we trials and temptations?
    Is there trouble anywhere?
    We should never be discouraged,
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Can we find a friend so faithful
    Who will all our sorrows share?
    Jesus knows our every weakness,
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.

  19. 🎶”And a partridge and a pear tree….”🎶

    But unto the sons of Kohath he gave none: because the service of the sanctuary belonging unto them was that they should bear upon their shoulders.
    Numbers 7:9 KJV

    HANDLE WITH CARE
    They were responsible for the transport of the furniture in the tabernacle when it was being moved. These holy pieces would have to have been handled with care, the trust that these guys must have put into Kohath, to allow them to handle the tabernacle pieces. What if we handle the holy annointed pieces of our tabernacle, of our inner temple, with care. Made sure that our holy pieces were not dropped or damaged or left behind. Our holiness is fragile and must be kept safe. We must carry our alter with us from place to place without pieces falling off or it being shattered on the ground. We must carry our laver of water\ our repentance without denting it on walls or careless thoughts. Being mind full of the directions we go because we don’t want to bend our lamp stand. Making sure the alter of incents is always the piece that you keep your eye on, so your praise is never lost. The table of show bread, a place where we place out special offering to God, is stable and clean. The mercy seat, our relationship with God, indefinitely needs to be handled with the most care. With love and attention. Only carrying this piece by itself.

  20. 7:89 and when Moses gone into the Tabernacle to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him, from the mercy seed that was upon the ark of Testimony from between the two cherubim : and he spake to him.
    ———
    What a beautiful scenery!!!!! But I thank my God that I ( you) can now seek , and talk to him any time , anywhere.
    * And when Moses gone into……
    Goi g to meet him
    A time set apart( to hear from him in such a way…)
    No one had access , any time they wanted to…
    Let’s get into his presence without distraction, and interruptions.

  21. 84 This was the dedication of the altar, in the day when it was anointed, by the princes of Israel: twelve chargers of silver, twelve silver bowls, twelve spoons of gold

    Each prince gave the same thing, they didnt try to outdo the other. This was not a competition but obedience and God approved the dedication and anointing and spoke to Moses from the mercy seat. As we live in obedience and submission, God will have the liberty to speak into our lives and direct our path.

  22. And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.

    This reminds me of the 12 day’s of Christmas my true love gave to me…😂

    Praise God! That you Jesus for the plan that delivered us from all that bloody killing. Now we just have to kill our will… wonder who had it harder 😂

  23. Maybe it’s due to the season, but reading this chapter I couldn’t help but be reminded of the Twelve Days of Christmas song.

    11 For the Lord had said to Moses, “Each day one leader is to bring his offering for the dedication of the altar.”

    “On the second day, on the third day, on the fourth day, etc” as the scripture continues.

    Which is yet another illustration of the importance of DAILY.
    Just as we daily feed our flesh, we should daily feed our spirits.

  24. When Moses finished setting up The Dwelling, he anointed it and consecrated it along with all that went with it. At the same time he anointed and consecrated the Altar and its accessories.

  25. 89 And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.

    Each family was compliant in giving their offering before the Lord. This is a great move of unity all working to serve the Lord. Also, this is a lot of work with plenty of livestock and shekels of precious metals to count, organize and offer. We should be thankful for the blood Jesus shed for us as the perfect sacrifice and now we don’t have to make sacrifices by animals. Now, we live for him and give of ourselves and what he has blessed us with.

  26. [89] And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.

  27. 89 And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.

    A few points of this chapter are impactful and hold much significance, the chapter has much to glean from. Taking this up a bit and looking further into the process in Hebrew it really makes it come alive in my opinion.

    When Moses met with God in the tent of meeting, we find that it was from above the mercy seat translated in Hebrew Kapporet it was the golden lid of the Ark of the Covenant and within the wing forms of the Cherubs that were attached to the Kapporet. IT was here that the presence of God spoke to Moses, the verse indicates that he heard the voice of one speaking, and it goes on to say he spoke to Moses.

    Here is the interesting part after looking further into this, when you translate the term “speak with him”, or “spake with him”, in the Hebrew it refers to dibber, this means a 2 way full blown conversation, as opposed to an oracle which is simply an edict pronounced by God. A full blown 2 way conversation with the Lord God Almighty, wow a tangible talk, a dialogue between the 2 of them. What a mighty God! What an opportunity, we have on a daily basis as Moses did we also can a relationship with God, prayer is not a task or duty it is a high privilege!

    My desire for 2020 is to be zoned in 100%, Jesus has got to be the center of my all!

  28. In the Amplified version the heading for this chapter says “Offerings of the Leaders”

    The leaders of each tribe were charged with bringing a sacrificial offering. This was an example to the people that they were leading.

    As leaders, our followers are going to do what we do. If we lead by briniging praise into the sanctuary, those who are following us will bringing a praise into the sanctuary. If we lead by worshipping during praise and worship, our followers will follow suit. If we lead by getting with the preacher, our followers will follow suit. Whatever we do, there are those watching us that are going to do the same.

    Let’s purpose in our hearts to be good leaders, leading the way in building our relationship with the Lord, and with others. Exampling how to pray in the prayer room, how to worship during praise and worship, how to respond during the Word, how to give during the offering, how to assist others in prayer at the altar, these are all things we should be doing, and teaching others to do as well.

    The old saying don’t do as I do, do as I say, doesn’t hold as much power as “do as I do”, follow me as I follow Christ.

  29. 3 And they brought their offering before the Lord, six covered wagons, and twelve oxen; a wagon for two of the princes, and for each one an ox: and they brought them before the tabernacle.

    It’s important to always give to the kingdom of God. Whether it be your finances, talent, or time. Most times it’ll be a sacrifice, but God blesses a cheerful giver! He sees everything we do and keeps record of it. Nothing you do will go unnoticed by Him.

  30. LIVE-GIVE JESUS
    THE VEIL IS OPEN

    89 And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.

    One of the greatest privileges of man in the New Testament age is that we opportunity to experience this once in a lifetime event if we desire. Moses had the unique and distinct privilege of hearing the voice of GOD speak to him from the Throne of Mercy where the King speaks.

    But we have this invitation with promise:

    Hebrews 4:14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
    15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
    16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

    In JESUS we have immediate access to the Throne of GOD.

  31. And it came to pass on the day that Moses had fully set up the tabernacle, and had anointed it, and sanctified it, and all the instruments thereof, both the altar and all the vessels thereof, and had anointed them, and sanctified them;
    A ceremony of anointing,dedication and consecration of the furniture and the people that would minister there. Anointing and consecration turns the ordinary to the extraordinary.

  32. “Now when Moses went into the Tent of Meeting (tabernacle) to speak with the LORD, he heard the voice speaking to him from above the mercy seat (the gold cover) that was on the ark of the Testimony from between the two cherubim; and He spoke [by special revelation] to him.”
    ‭‭Numbers‬ ‭7:89‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    What an honor to have the privilege to be able to hear the voice of God. To be able to be caught away with Him and truly know Him. To know close personal details of what is pleasing and displeasing to Him. To be able to go to a special place just made for two. And all of this is available if we make room and prepare The Place. We will find time for what we want to do. We will make clear off space for our special valuable treasures. And we prioritize our day and we always start with #1. First the King! Start with Jesus! Live Jesus! Give Jesus!

  33. 10 And the princes offered for dedicating of the altar in the day that it was anointed, even the princes offered their offering before the altar.

    “. . . even the princes offered their offering before the altar.” Even the princes. That tells me that every living thing brings an offering. No matter how great you are or how low you are you need to bring an offering to the Lord. You may be neither great or low, but somewhere in the middle, but you show still give your offering. . . Because, even the princes offered their offering before the altar. What have to given, what have you offered, what have you sacrificed?? Time, money, talent, treasure?? Each offering may be different, but they are all valuable to the King of Kings.

  34. Núm 7:1
    “Aconteció que cuando Moisés hubo acabado de levantar el tabernáculo, y lo hubo ungido y santificado, con todos sus utensilios, y asimismo ungido y santificado el altar y todos sus utensilios,
    Después de que se hubiese levantado, ungido y consagrado el tabernáculo, los líderes de las doce tribus trajeron obsequios y ofrendas para su uso y mantenimiento. “Todo el pueblo participó: era el tabernáculo de todos.”

    *Los recién nombrados líderes respondieron a su designación con ofrendas para el tabernáculo que acababa de ser dedicado.
    Una de las ofrendas era para el servicio del tabernáculo de reunión, dada de una vez, y otra para el altar, presentada en una ceremonia que se extendió durante doce días.
    El tiempo aquí habla del final de la construcción del tabernáculo, la consagración del tabernáculo y del altar.

    *Cada Ofrenda que se ofreció fue muy especial y específica para El Servicio del Tabernáculo.
    Todo siempre como debe de ser para nuestro Señor y Dios : ESPECIAL Y LO MEJOR!!

  35. There are two altars related to the tabernacle, the bronze altar of burnt offerings that lies outside the tent and the golden altar of incense that is within the holy place. The “altar” referred to in this chapter is almost certainly the bronze altar, because that is the larger and more prominent altar. The altar of incense is relatively minor in comparison.

    I thought we had already dedicated the altar back in Lev 8, and that is correct. The first part of this chapter, verse 1, is essentially recapitulating what Moses did in Lev 8. However, the dedication offerings of the twelve tribes were not discussed in Leviticus, so I believe v. 1 of this chapter is simply placed here to set the context for the rest of this chapter. After the dedication offerings, in v. 89 at the end of this chapter, the LORD speaks to Moses and gives him instructions which are related to us in chapter 8, and possibly into chapter 9, though it’s not clear if that’s a separate event or part of this same narrative.

  36. 1And it came to pass on the day that Moses had fully set up the tabernacle, and had anointed it, and sanctified it, and all the instruments thereof, both the altar and all the vessels thereof, and had anointed them, and sanctified them;

    2 That the princes of Israel, heads of the house of their fathers, who were the princes of the tribes, and were over them that were numbered, offered:

  37. 89 And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.

    So thankful for leadership at POFW .

  38. 3 And they brought their offering before the Lord, six covered wagons, and twelve oxen; a wagon for two of the princes, and for each one an ox: and they brought them before the tabernacle.
    Never go to the House of the Lord empty handed. There will always be something we can offer Him, and we should offer it with a joyful heart ❤

  39. I pray we come before the Lord with our best praise and our best shout, standing firm on His word and glorifying His name! JESUS!!!

  40. 88 And all the oxen for the sacrifice of the peace offerings were twenty and four bullocks, the rams sixty, the he goats sixty, the lambs of the first year sixty. This was the dedication of the altar, after that it was anointed.

    Our sacrifices to the Lord should be daily and given with reverence. Each given sacrifice and offering was given specifically and detailed. We too shall present our sacrifices and offering with our best praise and shout to our King!

  41. 89 And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake unto him.

    What is the Lord saying to you? He is always looking for us to approach and build a relationship with Him. If you take the time to talk to him He will answer. He is a gentleman and knows how to handle conversation. Seek him in prayer and talk to him dont just go with a prayer list of requests.

  42. 2 That the princes of Israel, heads of the house of their fathers, who were the princes of the tribes, and were over them that were numbered, offered:

    The leaders lead in the sacrificial giving. We must also acknowledge that the measurement of the offering was according to the tabernacle. There were 12 offerings measuring the same.

    Let us learn to be consistent in our sacrifice and ensure it measures according to the word of God.

  43. When we take the time to stop and listen to what God has to say, we find out the destiny God has for us. It’s not always easy to follow because of the oppositions that we face. However, God will give us strength to push through the trials of life. In him we live, move and have our being. Through him we can be triumphant.

  44. 12 And he that offered his offering the first day was Nahshon the son of Amminadab, of the tribe of Judah:
    13 And his offering was one silver charger, the weight thereof was an hundred and thirty shekels, one silver bowl of seventy shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary; both of them were full of fine flour mingled with oil for a meat offering:

    So many people would be so greatly embarrassed if their offerings were told as this man’s were.

  45. When each leader brought a bowl of offering weighing “such and such shekels” it reminded me of when my mom taught me to never return an empty borrowed dish, always put something in it as a thank. you. That’s exactly what these leaders did. However, how many times do we enter into God’s house as an empty vessel with nothing to give him but an open hand ready to receive. We’re always so quick to take, take, take and we need to change that.

  46. 89Whenever Moses went into the Tabernacle to speak with the LORD, he heard the voice speaking to him from between the two cherubim above the Ark’s cover—the place of atonement—that rests on the Ark of the Covenant.f The LORD spoke to him from there.

    Its great that we can listen for God’s voice no matter where we are. Whether we are praying, at school, at work, or at the store. That small little voice that tells you, “go speak” to that person.

  47. Each leader offered on their own day. It was order and direction given to them. This allowed for differentiations. It also allowed for the priests and Levite’s to keep up. It made there be a continual sacrifice to God, daily.

  48. Each leader brought a silver platter and a silver bowl, each full of fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering; a gold pan with incense, a bull, a ram, a male lamb, a young goat, two oxen, five rams, five adult goats, and five more lambs.
    Each silver plate weighed about three pounds, each silver bowl about two pounds, and a gold shovel about four ounces.
    Clearly, this was generous giving. God must show Promised Land people how to be givers – one of the best measures of one who has moved from a slave mind-set to a Promised Land mind-set. The slave by nature is a taker because he is often unsure of provision. Promised land people are generous, because they trust in a God who promised to meet all their needs.

    Each tribal leader brought exactly the same offering over the twelve days.
    Clearly, this was humble giving. By requiring the same gift from every tribe, God made sure that no tribe or tribal leader glorified himself through his giving. We must resist the tendency to give in order to be seen of men. Promised land people care about God’s glory, not their own.
    Each offering is recorded exactly the same way – seemingly, “wasting” space in the Scriptures. God’s purpose was to draw attention to each tribe’s offering, though they were all the same.

    Clearly, godly giving is always noticed by God, even if it is the same or less than many other gifts. God sees and “records” every gift given in a right heart, even if it is only worth two mites.

    “And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:”
    ‭‭Mark‬ ‭12:42-43‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Every gift from a promised-land kind of heart is noticed by God.
