Colouring In

We all have enjoyed the childhood pursuit of colouring in. More recently crafty ladies are using them in stitcheries etc. They look gorgeous.

I needed to colour in my own background for a flannelgraph series on the Old Testament Tabernacle produced by CEF, for our weekly Kid’s Fun Club lessons. I used oil crayons, then a toothbrush to brush/blend the colours into the flannelette fabric.

I was very pleased to finally get this Tabernacle series as it is an old set of lessons that CEF are no longer printing. The CEF representatives here in WA were able to find one hidden away somewhere in the USA, when they were there last year. I was very very excited when they called to say they’d managed to find it for me.

INTERESTING FACT: If you could fly in with a helicopter over the Children of Israel camped out in the wilderness, with the Tabernacle in the centre facing west and east, then the tribes, with numbers given in the Bible, camped either, north, south, east or west of the tabernacle according to the pattern God gave - you would see the shape of the cross.

Another one of the many pictures throughout the Tabernacle of the promised Messiah, who has come, the Lord Jesus Christ. As we come up to Easter time, we see many of the things He fulfilled, shown in "picture form" in the Old Testament.

Have you acknowledged your personal need of Him to be your Saviour?

"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" Romans 3:10

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." Romans 10:9

"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13

  1. Your Old Testament Tabernacle is beautiful! I absolutely love the stories from the Old Testament. I just got home tonight from a Seder Supper. It was just wonderful.

    So thankful that I gave my life to Christ many, many years ago when I was just a young child:)

    Have a wonderful Holy week and beautiful Easter as we celebrate the RISEN Savior!!
