Re: Verse reading–Exodus 25:1-11, 17-18, 23-24, 31-32; 26:1-2, 7-8; 27:1-2; 29:43-46 (day seven)
“And let them construct a sanctuary for Me, that I may dwell with them.” (v 8)
Does God have an address? A place where we can always find Him? At some level, the answer is, “no”. In 2 Chronicles 6:18, Solomon prays, “Will God indeed dwell with mankind on the earth? Behold, heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain Thee; how much less this house which I have built?” At another level, however, God does dwell, stay, (can always be found) in the places He has promised to do so. He dwelt in the tabernacle. He met with Israel there. Christ, in similar fashion, promised to meet us in the gathered fellowship of His family. “Where two or three are gathered together in My Name, I will be in the midst.” (Matthew 28:20) God’s house, God’s address is His people when we gather in cooperation with His purposes. He lives there. It is where we will find Him.
