Bezalel is a type in the Old Testament of the master builder [Exo. 31:2]. The name Bezalel means “in the shadow of God.” This indicates that as a master builder, Bezalel was altogether under God’s shadowing. He was a man under the shadow of God’s grace. This corresponds to Paul’s word in 1 Corinthians 3:10, where he says that it was by God’s grace that he was made a wise master builder. Witness Lee, Life-study of Exodus. More at www.agodman.com

The day that the tabernacle was raised up, that the cloud descended and covered it, and that the glory entered and filled it was a great day. Never before had the Triune God been embodied on earth; the embodiment of the Triune God was God’s goal throughout Genesis and Exodus (Gen. 1:26). The tabernacle covered by the cloud and filled with glory was a great blessing to the children of Israel, but today we have the reality of what they had only in figure. Witness Lee.

We need to be the reproduction of Christ, the expression of God, so that in our shepherding we express God, not the self with its disposition and peculiarities (John…

In Adam we fell so low that we became sin. Not only were we sinful before God — we became sin itself. But now in Christ, having been brought thoroughly back to God, we may enjoy Christ to such an extent that in Him we become God’s righteousness. What a salvation! What a reconciliation! To have this enjoyment is to be on the peak of God’s salvation, to be on the peak of our holy Zion. Witness Lee. More at www.agodman.com
