When God commissioned Moses to build for him a Tabernacle in the desert, God made it clear to Moses that he wanted Moses to build only what He said build, and gave him the pattern for the construction.
This is a fundamental Truth that we must understand: to understand The Tabernacle built in the desert. [Read Exodus 25 for plans given to Moses.]
The more direct dealings I have with The LORD God, the more understanding I gain of His Character and His Plans!
God is very, very particular in His Plans and He will insist on doing everything His Way.
I have found out that if I have a plan, it will be found at fault (most likely), because God has His Exact Plan in mind. My plans are not God’s Plans [unless they do begin with God and in His understanding given [to me] by revelation of His Plan.
Moses was told — flat out by God — all his plans: “According to all I shew thee, after the pattern of The Tabernacle [in heaven – God had his sanctuary which was to be the earthly pattern].”
God spared no details when describing exactly what He wanted Moses to build and He spoke very plainly to Moses.
Moses was faithful, the Scripture tells us, in all His House. In other words Moses obeyed The LORD and worked with God’s Blueprint [pattern of the building] in his hand.
With all his ability, he did exactly what The LORD said to do… He built an earthly Tabernacle exactly to God’s plans!
Read it: Hebrews 3:5, “And Moses verily was faithful in all His House, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after….”
Please read the following text:
“…and let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the Tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it,” Exodus 25:8-9.
If you are a builder, the Scripture tells all: take heed how you build upon the foundation, for there is no other foundation laid but Christ Jesus!
Again, it is most important to only build proper on God’s Foundation. In this verse found in 1 Corinthians 4, it warns men that all the work [building(s) built and things done] will be judged in The Fire of God’s Judgment.
Read it here:
“According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise master-builder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire,” 1 Corinthians 3:10-15.
Please note that the things that would burn in the test to determine what are true works, would burn up in the fire!
Any builder who builds anything must be careful what sort of building he builds!
First we read about Moses building, now we read about all builders building, now we are admonished by God that every builder must be very careful to only build proper work for God.
What I have come to find out in the building of Desert Zion, is: I must build all according to God’s plan.
This is the reason why it has taken me so long to build [I have been forced to build only what God says build, and it must be approved by God himself.]
I have had to wait upon The LORD and his provisions, etc. He must give me the go ahead, and if I had built anything wrong, it would burn in the fire.
I have had to go back time and time again to be sure of the plans. The fact is, Moses even had to receive knowledge [vision] of what The LORD was asking him to build in the desert.
Many who observe my efforts to build and hear me talking do not know the struggle involved with the building of Desert Zion.
Many come here to Desert Zion and do not understand why I haven’t put up a bunch of structures already, and why I haven’t been able to build. The reason is I can’t build without his approval or his provisions, and I must fully understand His Plans before building anything.
At one juncture [in the attempt to the building of Desert Zion] I asked The LORD what should I build now? His answer was: “You’re still buying property. I will tell you when to build anything.”
The LORD said: “Much more property is coming in, wait upon it.” In that event, I could build nothing, yet!
Another time I asked The LORD, “Can I build a metal building for a shop to work in to do the work? He answered: “In no way can you build anything in Desert Zion out of metal, because Fire is coming.
How would you like to roast in the heat and be burned up, for the Fire Judgment is coming upon the world? Metal gets very hot in fire!”
Another time I asked The LORD, “Then what do I build out of?” His answer was: “Rammed earth blocks! Everything must be made out of earth, because earth does not burn and what is coming is Fire.”
“Well LORD, can I just build a wire fence around Desert Zion?” “No.” Was his answer. “It must be rammed earth blocks or earth blocks. It must be high enough to keep out the enemy and it must never burn! It will also be a windbreak and protection around the 20 acres!”
In the beginning, as I begin to try to build Desert Zion, The LORD told me, “You must build everything exactly as I tell you to build it, or you will not be able to build at all.”
You must know that early out, some have come here to criticize me and tell me I cannot build Desert Zion like I said [out of rammed earth blocks]. I have been the blunt of evil talk and accusation that I am not even building yet!
Many have told me that I would not be able to build a rammed earth wall around the 20 acres of Desert Zion proper, much less the interior courtyard [which would be even more dirt and work!].
Much of my time before today has been trying to convince some of what God’s Plan and building materials would be…. I have come to naught with some already, out of frustration on dealing with their objections and advice to me on how to build!
I have come to know now, after this initial phase of trying to build Desert Zion, I can only do exactly what The LORD says to me daily to do, and use only the tools The LORD tells me to use.
For you who read this — please know, I have waited upon The LORD seeking to know daily what to do, and, at the same time I have had to contend with the many who are telling me I am stupid and ignorant, trying to build out of rammed earth! These same people turn around and criticize me for having nothing built, yet.
Some others have even come here and are putting up metal shipping containers every other day, and working like beavers to build out of metal. Even stick houses! I have, in vain, tried to warn them of building out of those things, yet they continue…..
I have been criticized by them, because I haven’t built as of now much more then some roads, and dug some good earth to make rammed earth blocks, by these same people!
To them I say: I would rather have nothing built yet, than to build a bunch of junk that will not stand the test of fire judgment to come. It would be better to have a few blocks of earth then to burn in the fire.
God told Moses he had to build “Exactly” like the plan. God said to him… “Moses make sure you build according to the plan I give you!”
Because God is the One doing the planning. I am only a builder, seeking to build only God’s Plan.
The LORD has told me, “Take one day at a time and I will show you how to do all the blocks fast and My Way.” He said, “I know how to make it work, for after all, I have been a builder from the beginning!”
* * * * * * *
I have written this Word in obedience to The LORD.
LORD help those who criticize me for building [or even trying to build] your way. Help them understand, I am doing my very best to build according to all Your Plans.
LORD, help me just be obedient and build exactly as you say build, and in the time you choose me to do that building.
Help me fully know Your Plans and why You Plan these plans in the light of the coming judgment by Fire coming upon the whole earth.
