2The heart of giving25:1 The Lord said to Moses, 2 “Speak to the people of Israel, that they take for me a contribution. From every man whose heart moves him you shall receive the contribution for me. 3 And this is the contribution that you shall receive from them: gold, silver, and bronze, 4 blue and purple and scarlet yarns and fine twined linen, goats' hair, 5 tanned rams' skins, goatskins, acacia wood, 6 oil for the lamps, spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense, 7 onyx stones, and stones for setting, for the ephod and for the breastpiece. 8 And let them make me a sanctuary, that I may dwell in their midst. 9 Exactly as I show you concerning the pattern of the tabernacle, and of all its furniture, so you shall make it.
3Two acts of creationThe Torah describes two acts of creation: G‑d’s creation of the universe, and the Israelites’ creation of the Mikdash or Mishkan, the sanctuary that traveled with them in the desert, the prototype of the Temple in Jerusalem.The connection between them is not incidental. As a number of commentators have noted, the Torah invokes a series of verbal parallels between them. The effect is unmistakable. The latter mirrors the former. As G‑d made the universe, so He instructed the Israelites to make the mishkan.
4The Universe The Mishkan "And G-d made the sky“ "And G-d made the two large lights""And G-d made the beasts of the earth" (1: 7, 16, 25)"And G-d saw all that He had made, and behold it was very good." (1: 31)"The heavens and earth and all of their array were completed." (2:1) (1: 7, 16, 25)"And G-d completed all the work that He had done" (2:2)"And G-d blessed" (2:3)"And sanctified it" (2:3)"They shall make Me a sanctuary""They shall make an ark“"Make a table" (25: 8, 9, 23)"Moses saw all the skilled work and behold they had done it; as G-d commanded it, they had done it." (39:43)"All the work of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting was completed" (39:32) (25: 8, 9, 23)"And Moses completed the work" (40:33)"And Moses blessed" (39:43)"And you shall sanctify it and all its vessels" (40:9) (39:43)
5The Garden TabernacleMidst of the GardenEdenGarden of Eden
6In the cool of the day רוח ruwach = spirit Gen. 3:8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.רוח ruwach = spiritGal. 5:16 [This] I say then, Walk in the Spirit (Ruach), and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.Gen. 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
7[Exd 26:1 KJV] 1 Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle [with] ten curtains [of] fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: [with] cherubims of cunning work shalt thou make them.
8Tabernacle of Heaven[Exd 25:40 KJV] 40 And look that thou make [them] after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.Hebrews 8:4-5 NIV 4 If he were on earth, he would not be a priest, for there are already priests who offer the gifts prescribed by the law. 5 They serve at a sanctuary that is a copy and shadow of what is in heaven. This is why Moses was warned when he was about to build the tabernacle: “See to it that you make everything according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.”
9[Rev 4:5 KJV] 5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and [there were] seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.[Rev 5:6 KJV] 6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts…
10[Rev 8:3-4 KJV] 3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer [it] with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

12The veil will be tornIsaiah 25: 7-8 “And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord has spoken it.”[Isa 64:1 KJV] 1 Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence,[Isa 34:4 KJV] 4 And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling [fig] from the fig tree.[Rev 6:14 KJV] 14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
13The glory of the lord[Psa 72:19 KJV] 19 And blessed [be] his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled [with] his glory; Amen, and Amen.[Num 14:21 KJV] 21 But [as] truly [as] I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.[Isa 6:3 KJV] 3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, [is] the LORD of hosts: the whole earth [is] full of his glory.[Hab 2:14 KJV] 14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
14Psalm 19:1-6 “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.”The Hebrew word for heavens here is “shamayim” and can be seen in Genesis 1:1-Gen. 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”This is the visible sky or firmament where the “seen” universe is displayed. “Mayim” is the Hebrew word used for water so you can see how this name came into being by reading Genesis 1:7-8 “And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven (or Sha-MAYIM).”
15How many zodiac signs have to do with water/mayim?
16Romans 1:18-20 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven…Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”This is a fingerprint of God’s design. Scripture tells us that Yahweh brings forth the constellations in their seasons. It is important to know that each of the twelve major constellations come about in different months and seasons of a calendar year. We know these constellations as the Zodiac but Scripture calls them Mazzeroth.Job 38:31-32 “Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth (Zodiac) in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?”
17Psalm 147:4 “He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.” Isaiah 40:26 “Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.”They travel in a “circuit” or what scientists call the “Ecliptic Line.” This is mentioned in Psalm 19 as “Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world…His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it.”Job 9:8-9 “Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea. Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.”Isaiah 13:10 “For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.”Amos 5:8 “Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion…”
18There are 12 major constellations with 3 Decans or minor constellations a piece totaling 36 minor constellations. These constellations can be seen 12 times throughout the calendar year as they travel across the ecliptic line as shown below.
19The Zodiac- A Brief History: The word Zodiac comes from the root word “sodi” which means, “the way.” It is interesting to note that Yeshua said that he was “the way, the truth and the life.” I am not suggesting that the Zodiac or Mazzeroth are “the way” but I do believe that they point to “the way.” The earliest archeological discovery of the Zodiac symbols is in the Temple of Denderah dating around 2,000 BC (pictured here). The division of the ecliptic into the zodiacal signs originated in Babylonian or Chaldean astronomy during the second half of the 1st millennium BC.
22Cell Nucleus – The Cell's Brain Before we explore the cell's organelles (small organs), let's first head straight for the brain, or nucleus. A cell's nucleus is responsible for directing the activities of the cell, in the same way that your brain directs the activities of your body.
23Cell Nucleus – The Cell's Brain A cell's nucleus is surrounded by a thin wall, or membrane. This membrane is called the nuclear membrane, and protects the nucleus from outside dangers. Just like the cellular membrane, the nuclear membrane also has many small openings which allow things to come in and out.
24RNA & DNA floating around As we travel through an opening and into the nucleus, you will begin to see many small rod-like objects called chromosomes. These chromosomes contain the blueprints for how cells and organisms should be built. The chromosomes are made from smaller molecules called DNA and RNA.
25NucleolusLook around. In addition to chromosomes, you will also see a small round object called the nucleolus. The word nucleolus means little nucleus. It is believed that the nucleolus is where a cell creates ribosomes…
