The Temple Offering That God Receives
Exodus 35:20~29 All the men and women, the people of Israel, whose heart moved them to bring anything for the work that the Lord had commanded by Moses to be done brought it as a freewill offering to the Lord. (29)

Holding onto the covenant accurately is the start of everything. By doing so, you’ll begin to enjoy the covenantal prayer. Building the Tabernacle in the wilderness was God’s clear plan. For you who are within God’s eternal covenant, this is your one-time opportunity and time schedule. This is also the field where you’ll leave behind the first, last, and eternal footsteps of faith. You will only live once. During this opportunity, what God-given evidence must you hold onto?
1. The Evidences of Grace That Were Given in the Past
Those who devoted themselves while building the Tabernacle gave their joyful and grateful hearts to God. When they held onto God’s Blood Covenant that was given to Moses, they became aware of the mystery of the Exodus, the Three Feasts that took place in the wilderness, and the mystery of the Ark of the Covenant. Through that grace, they relayed the evidences that were given in the past and devoted themselves with grateful hearts as they constructed the Tabernacle.
2. The Evidences of the Present and the Future
As you walk in the wilderness, you will encounter spiritual problems caused by trials and idolatry. That’s why you need a temple where you can receive God-given strength. Thankfully, evidences to help you overcome the Jordan River, Jericho, and other fortified strongholds in the future have already been prepared. All you have to do is hold onto the evidences of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd RUTC movements and world evangelization that God fulfill.
From the beginning, God has called you as the Summit in order to heal and save the 237 nations. If you hold onto the covenant of the temple, God will carry it out.
[Covenantal Prayer] Dear God, help me to hold onto the covenant given by You. May the devotion that I give today become an opportunity of joyful blessings. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Q. What Is the Offering Given to God?
“Please grant me the grace to offer You the best of what I have, the greatest possessions in my life, and the finest that I can offer to the next generation. Bless me so that I may leave behind my footsteps of faith. I give thanksgiving because I’m able to return everything to You.”
God does accept donations. God accepts offerings.
Within those offerings, the economy of darkness is broken down and the blessings of being used for God’s desired works are found.
“But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able thus to offer willingly? For all things come from you, and of your own have we given you.” (1 Chronicles 29:14)
