Re: Verse reading–Exodus 39:32, 42-43; 40:1-2, 16-17, 32-38 (day three)

“…in the sight of all the house of Israel”  God acted within view of all Israel.  Indeed, Paul tells us that in creating the material universe, God has acted in full view of the entire human race.  Take issue with God, run from him, tell of your anger towards him, choose not to follow his commands—but don’t claim that he cannot be found.  Don’t assert that his presence can’t be known.  Don’t state that his existence is unlikely.   We don’t get to bend reality to our ideas.  If you would follow your own desires instead of God’s direction, then at least declare your intentions to God himself.  Have that serious conversation.  If you do, you can find the way towards saving grace when your will leads you to a dead end.
