Acts 7:43-47

43 You have taken up the tabernacle of Molek
    and the star of your god Rephan,
    the idols you made to worship.
Therefore I will send you into exile’[j] beyond Babylon.

44 “Our ancestors had the tabernacle of the covenant law with them in the wilderness. It had been made as God directed Moses, according to the pattern he had seen. 45 After receiving the tabernacle, our ancestors under Joshua brought it with them when they took the land from the nations God drove out before them. It remained in the land until the time of David, 46 who enjoyed God’s favor and asked that he might provide a dwelling place for the God of Jacob.[k] 47 But it was Solomon who built a house for him.

One response to “Acts 7:43-47

  1. God is jealous. He demands our affection and worship, and He longs for us to seek Him. In our covenant, we have not been without His presence through His Spirit and His Word. Yet I still make gods by allowing my affection to be diverted and my time to be consumed on other things.

    He exiled the whole nation of Israel because they followed other gods. He is kind and slow to anger with me. I need to focus every day on setting my affection on Him.
