Arrow Daily Bible Portion (Thursday)

Daily Bible Portion - 5 of 7
"WHEN YOU TAKE"

(Weekly Reading>>Exodus 30:11-34:35, 1 Kings 18:20-39, 2 Corinthians 3:1-18)

The Sabbath incorporates many terms, among them, the seventh day and Sabbath years. Yahweh’s Feasts days are also called Sabbaths. "Today" in Scripture is a reference to the Sabbath but focused more on the Age or a period of time. The Sabbath is a term used for Yeshua’s lifestyle and Kingdom. The Sabbath is eternal, which means it is before Creation . The seventh day remains the same even to this day, as it is not affected by time. Those who enter into the Sabbath transcend time. The Sabbath is the Bride’s personal and private time with her Bridegroom in His Chambers. The Sabbath is a test given to see if the Bride will be a faithful Bride. Those who keep the Sabbath receive a double portion. The Sabbath is the wedding ring of the Messiah. It is His sign that identifies the Bride of Yeshua and is a delight to those who keep it. The Sabbath is for our blessings and sanctification, which leads to holiness. Breaking the Sabbath profanes Yahweh’s Holy Name and breaks the Covenant set between Him and His Bride. If we walk with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and call ourselves Israel, then the Sabbath is for us to keep. (Exodus 16:4-5; Hebrews chapter 4, 8:8-10;Luke 17:20-21).

John 5:46 Yeshua said, “If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me.”


Isaiah 58:13-14 “If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath and from doing as you please on my holy day, if you call the Sabbath a delight and Yahweh's holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way and not doing as you please or speaking idle words, then you will find your joy in Yahweh, and I will cause you to ride on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob.’ The mouth of Yahweh has spoken.



Moses Returns to Camp
(Exodus 31:18)

With these final instructions regarding the Sabbath, Moses’ forty days and nights on the mountain with Yahweh had come to an end. He returned to camp holding the two tablets of the Covenant inscribed by the finger of Yahweh in his hands. He was eager to share all he had witnessed and the Wedding Covenant with all its blessings with the people of Yahweh. Meanwhile, while Moses was up the mountain, Yahweh reveals to us what had been going on in the camp….


The Golden Calf and the Adulterous Bride/Believer
(Exodus 32)

As Moses tarried up the mountain, the people lapsed into pursuing their own interests. They soon forgot their betrothal to Yahweh and went after the idols in their hearts. Not waiting for Yahweh or this man Moses , they allowed themselves to be led astray and enslaved by their double-mindedness influenced by their hard hearts. The people wanted to worship what they thought was a better god than the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob at Mount Sinai. In spite of the cloud covering by day and the fire by night plus all the signs and wonders they had witnessed, they devised plans to have their own god. Aaron yielded to their rebellion and called for their gold earrings. It was Aaron who formed an idol cast in the shape of a calf, fashioning it with a tool. When he gave it to the Israelites who cried out, “O Israel, these are your gods, who brought you up out of Egypt.”

This golden calf was a counterfeit of the Red Heifer, the shadow of the Messiah (Numbers 19:1-22). Only the ashes from the true Red Heifer (Yeshua), and not this man-made calf, could cleanse the heart and soul of Israel of their sins.

When Moses returned, the shock of seeing the newly betrothed Bride of the Messiah so quickly abandoning her vows to dance and adulterate herself before this pagan idol was devastating. After witnessing the Glory of Yahweh on the mountain those forty days and nights and returning with His wonderful plans for their lives together, this blatant act of violation caused Moses to drop and shatter the two stone tablets. They broke at the foot of the mountain, the same place their vows were made. We will do and we will obey shattered in one incident of pagan pleasure (Exodus 24:1-11).

How many of us have shattered lives because of an idol in our heart? Marriages broken, families divided, careers ruined - all because we were double minded toward Yahweh. The tablets Moses shattered contained the solution. We need to pick up those shattered pieces of our lives and read what is written on those tablets. The Words of Yahweh are for the healing of the Nations (Revelation 22:2).

Moses took the golden calf, burned it and ground it to powder, then scattered it on the water and made the Israelites drink it. “He stood at the entrance to the camp and said, ‘Whoever is for Yahweh, come to me.’ And all the Levites rallied to him.” He commanded those who were with him to go among the people and kill those who had been unfaithful. Three thousand lost their lives that day (Exodus 32:26).
