    Starting to dig into this week’s portion… A few thoughts follow.

    This particular portion of Shemot (Exodus) is so rich with evidence of churchianity being ‘off the tracks.’

    The latter part of chapter 31 deals with Shabbat being a ‘sign forever’ on the seventh day… IF it changed, then how many other promises and ‘forever signs’ might change? Rainbows and floods anyone? Maybe our Father was just kidding… ‘Course, that means we are in a real quandary as to when else He might be kidding… This Sabbath thing is serious because there are other places in Scripture Yahweh says, “Forever” in conjunction to Shabbat and other significant matters. Read the Reformation Thought, RT:Olam! on this blog.

    Early part of chapter 32 is a clear example of RT:Syncretism. It is the, ahem, stoopid preacher protecting his position and bowing to the wishes of the people who had wrongly put their trust in Moshe instead of Yahweh…. who leads them astray!! Notice how much truth Aharon uses mixed with a little falsehood to appease them. If Moshe had not directly intervened they would have continued down that road of falsehood.

    A joyous verse we looked at in family devotions this morning: 33:11. Joshua must have really warmed Yahweh and Moshe’s hearts. He wasn’t looking at Moshe. He wanted Yahweh in all His fullness. Beautiful! Who did Yahweh choose to lead the people into the land? The one who was seeking HIS face!!

    More good stuff, but these are early thoughts.
