Catrina’s Understanding of Exodus 21-40
This is the time the Lord start to give instructions on how to purify yourself from Sin. Instructions on how to build the lords temple so his people could go pray, meditate and worship him. This showed me that God really care for his creation. Otherwise, he would have left us dry. The instructions help you stay righteous in everyday life. For example, Exodus 22:2 talks about a theif paying back double to the owner he stole from. It’s amazing to notice how God started giving us basic instructions before we leave this earth even in the early days.
More of God’s laws
If you lend money, don’t practice usury. Well I know many corporations who are breaking Gods law. According to Google, Usury means the illegal action or practice of lending money at unreasonably high rates of interest. I’m going to allow God to handle my worries of companies who are going against the acts of God.
Don’t oppress a stranger. According to Google, oppress means to keep (someone) in subservience and hardship, especially by the unjust exercise of authority. If we fast forward to the 21st century, January 31, 2017 we find the people up high is violating God’s law bc it’s a lot of oppression, usury, and more going on. There is a huge gap between the rich and the poor. People are choosing to go to school but must agree to pay ridiculously high prices that cause people to stay in oppression to pay school debt alone for over 40 years.
Instructions of Atonement for your soul was given. Google explained Atonement as reparation for a wrong or injury. Healing oil was also popular in these days. I pray for those pastors who have used Healing oil for money reasons only. Keeping 1 day to worship the Lord only and rest within your 7 days should be a commitment.
Around Exodus 32 is when Moses went up to get the commandments of God. The children of Isreal did not believe in themselves and created other idols to worship instead. Beware because God will put his wrath on you if you go against him.
Everyday we need to repent our sins and practice rightousness towards God. He also gave instructions on how to sacrifice for him. Before Christ, it was called a sin offering. Today, it would look awkward to kill a animal to sacrifce unto the Lord. We must find out by allowing God to speak to our heart on what we need to sacrifice to receive his forgiveness. This is a God’s 1st Challenge to go through the entire bible from start to finish.
I am that, I am.
