EXODUS 35 – Now it it’s time to get busy actually BUILDING the Tabernacle and furnishings, exactly according to God’s instructions.
Ex 35:1-3 – Before entering this important work, God gives a reminder about Sabbath RESTING. Compare Ex 34:21 – a reminder to rest even in particularly busy times. And compare the serious urgency of Ex 35:2 (basically “rest or die”) and Heb 3-4 commanding us to enter the rest that’s available in Jesus every day or receive God’s eternal wrath (also summarized in John 3:36).
Ex 35:5, 10, 21, 22, 25-35 – God gives the willing hearts and the different levels of skill, then we get to be involved in what the living God is doing!
