The Lord “Called,” “Spoke” and “Said” from the Tabernacle


Once God had entered into the camp of Israel and was abiding in the Tabernacle he would speak to Moses (as he did Samuel in First Samuel 3) from the Tabernacle. The book of Leviticus picks up where Exodus left off when the Lord entered the Tabernacle (Exodus 40:33-38). In Leviticus 1:1 the Lord calls to Moses from the Tabernacle and begins to establish a systematic and formal system of worship and sacrificial. By doing this the Lord makes all other personal forms of worship systems and family altars inappropriate.

Before the establishment of the Tabernacle the Lord was worshipped on many altars built in a variety of places. The Bible lists these people and the locations altars were built to the Lord and accepted by him:Cain/Abel, Genesis 4:3-5; Noah, Genesis 8:20; Abraham, Genesis 12:7-8; 13:4; 13:18; 22:9; Melchizedek, Genesis 14:18; Isaac, Genesis 26:25; Jacob, Genesis 33:20; 35:7; Moses, Exodus 17:15. The assumption is that this is not an extensive list, but that there must have been others who built altars to the Lord in many places. But, beginning in Exodus 40 and Leviticus 1 there is only one place offerings could be made to the Lord. Alternate altars and worship centers would combine elements of Canaanite other pagan religions into the Israelite religious system and lead the people astray. These private or local altars would be known as "high places." (God does respond to altars made by Joshua, Joshua 8:30, according to God's command to recite the Law there; in Judges and by Elijah in times of great apostasy.)

The Lord speaks from the Tabernacle to Moses concerning how Israel is to worship him and gives detailed instructions concerning the ritual and the sacrifice.

The word “called” in the opening statement of Leviticus is qara which means “to call out” or “to shout.” After the Lord had “called,” qara, or shouted to Moses, Leviticus 1:1 continues by saying, the Lord “spoke to him from the tent of meeting.” The word “spoke” here is dabar which means “to set in a row, to arrange in order” and here dabar refers to speaking words in an arranged order. The Lord qara, “called out to Moses,” and then began to dabar, “speak organized words in an arranged, categorized system.”

Leviticus 1:1 says, “The Lord CALLED (qara)…SPOKE (daba)…He SAID (amar).” The third word used for the Lord’s communication with Moses is amar which means “to bear forth, to bring to light.” When the Lord began to daba arrange his words he amar, or brought forth light with his words.

Leviticus 1:1 says that once God was in the camp of Israel in his Tabernacle he, qaradabaamar. The Lord called to Moses to get his attention, revealed his system of thoughts with organized words and when he began to speak his words brought light and revealed his thoughts to Moses to speak to Israel.

  Christian Quote from Church History

“Without education, we are in a horrible and deadly danger of taking educated people seriously.” 
- G.K. Chesterton




Something to Ponder??

The Jewish scribes who copied the scripture began each day making sure their reed pen was going to write acceptably by dipping it into the ink and writing the name of the nation AMALEK and then crossing it out with the same ink. Amalek was the nation that the Lord cursed for attacking Israel in the wilderness during Moses day and the nation that Samuel commanded Saul to wipe out.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Today the Scriptures are the source of our information about the Lord, his nature and how we worship.
Do I follow the scriptural mandates for worship and life?
Or, do I allow cultural ideas and religious tradition to establish my principles for worship and living?
I will use the written revelation of God's word to guide my worship, priorities, world view and lifestyle.
  "Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring
of life."
- Proverbs 4:23

This is a view of the end of the Roman aqueduct that runs along the beach of the Mediterranean Sea at Caesarea. The sea can slightly be seen on the left where it meets the sky on the horizon.  This aqueduct provide plenty of fresh water for the city and fresh water for  Herod’s swimming pool in his palace that was built on the sea.
