Disciples of Jesus Christ of Vayahkel-Pekudei, at the book of Exodus Chapters 35-40:

The book of Exodus and Chapter 40:

 1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
 2On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
 3And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the vail.
 4And thou shalt bring in the table, and set in order the things that are to be set in order upon it; and thou shalt bring in the candlestick, and light the lamps thereof.
 5And thou shalt set the altar of gold for the incense before the ark of the testimony, and put the hanging of the door to the tabernacle.
 6And thou shalt set the altar of the burnt offering before the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
 7And thou shalt set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and shalt put water therein.
 8And thou shalt set up the court round about, and hang up the hanging at the court gate.
 9And thou shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle, and all that is therein, and shalt hallow it, and all the vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.
 10And thou shalt anoint the altar of the burnt offering, and all his vessels, and sanctify the altar: and it shall be an altar most holy.
 11And thou shalt anoint the laver and his foot, and sanctify it.
 12And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and wash them with water.
 13And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office.
 14And thou shalt bring his sons, and clothe them with coats:
 15And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto me in the priest’s office: for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.
 16Thus did Moses: according to all that the LORD commanded him, so did he.
 17And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.
 18And Moses reared up the tabernacle, and fastened his sockets, and set up the boards thereof, and put in the bars thereof, and reared up his pillars.
 19And he spread abroad the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent above upon it; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 20And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the staves on the ark, and put the mercy seat above upon the ark:
 21And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the vail of the covering, and covered the ark of the testimony; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 22And he put the table in the tent of the congregation, upon the side of the tabernacle northward, without the vail.
 23And he set the bread in order upon it before the LORD; as the LORD had commanded Moses.
 24And he put the candlestick in the tent of the congregation, over against the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.
 25And he lighted the lamps before the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 26And he put the golden altar in the tent of the congregation before the vail:
 27And he burnt sweet incense thereon; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 28And he set up the hanging at the door of the tabernacle.
 29And he put the altar of burnt offering by the door of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation, and offered upon it the burnt offering and the meat offering; as the LORD commanded Moses.
 30And he set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the altar, and put water there, to wash withal. (Exodus 40, King James Version)

Brief Commentary on Exodus 40:

A lot can be said about this chapter, but in the memorial portions of Tetzaveh and Terumah, God prepares Moses for commandments that are pleasing for him. The tent and the priesthood are ordained by God. The children of Israel shall be God’s chosen people. On the first month in the second year and the first day, Moses reared up the tent.

How about that, at the stations of our lives, we have a tent revival and we preach all the way into the promised land. Now this is amazing because the children of Israel got to see how God was definitley with the people of the congregation. Although God is everywhere, the favor and providence of God was absolutely with the congregation of Israel.

In the end Moses put up the entire tento of the congregation and the alter and the septic system. As stated earlier he had the annointing oil, the vessels, the altar, Aaron and his sons; the hanging on the door of the tabernacle; the alter of burnt offering is by the door so that all of the olah or burnt offering; minchah or meal offering; zevach sh’lamim or sacrifice of well-being; chatat or sin offeirng; or asham or penalty offering which is given through voluntary offerings, if you noticed that you were a member of the congregation of Israel and you had transgressed in your iniquity.

In closing, the Glory of the LORD is here, the presence of the LORD is here, I can feel the Lord in the atmosphere. I bet that was an amazing time to feel the amazing providence of God that he promised he would be with you when you see Exodus 32:12-21. So now the conclusion of the memorial portion is of Vayahkehl-Pejudei is here. I hope you enjoy the bible references and the word of God, my commentary is very secondary and minor and an opinion of my perspective from my profession and confession of faith. Amen.
