Awakening from Above / Below
Exodus Study (pt. 23)
There is a concept within spirituality known as "Awakening from Above/Awakening from Below."
God's revelation comes down from Heaven, but an aspect of our spiritual growth emerges from below.
When we implement God's commands and become "doers of the word," a lasting transformation takes place.
When we "do," we gain insight. We learn at a deeper level and begin to experience the wisdom behind the command that solidifies our spiritual transformation.
This concept is expressed in the book of Exodus through a literary device called a chiasm or a chiastic structure.
The structure of the biblical text itself shows us the principle in action as the Israelites are transformed into a community where the presence of God can dwell.
