In the above verse, Hashem (God) instructs the Children of Israel to build Him a dwelling place. This dwelling place in Hebrew called the mishkan is not intended to physically contain Hashem. Rather, the mishkan is a place which enables Hashem to dwell “among them,” meaning in the midst of the Children of Israel. Unlike pagan places of worship, the mishkan is not meant to provide a home on earth for a God. Rather, the mishkan, and ultimately the Beit Hamikdash (temple) in Yerushahlayim (Jerusalem), are designed to facilitate the relationship between Hashem and His children.
STEVE & LAURIE MARTIN - LOVE FOR HIS PEOPLE FOUNDERS
My good wife Laurie and I (married 45 years), founded Love For His People Ministry in 2010. This work gives love and support to our friends in Israel and other nations with friendship and humanitarian aid. Through social media, Steve's messages, and our Ahava Adventures trips to Israel, the ministry is a growing, effective outreach.
Steve has also authored and published 36 books.
We live in the Charlotte, NC area and have four adult children, spouses, and eight grandkids.
Ahava and shalom with blessings on ye head!
