The Tabernacle in the Wilderness

The Tabernacle in the Wilderness
God's Plan of Salvation - The Everlasting Covenant

"The Scriptures record the numbers of persons in each of the twelve tribes as Asher 41,500; Benjamin 35,400; Dan 62,700; Ephraim (Joseph) 40,500; Gad 45,650; Isaachar 54,400; Manasseh 32,200; Naphtali 53,400; Reuben 46,500; Simeon 59,300 Zebulon 57,400 making a grand total of 603, 550. Judah was in the lead because the Messiah, Jesus Christ, would be from this tribe/house (after Solomon's fall split the Kingdom of Israel in two, Judah and Benjamin became the House of Judah, and the other Ten Tribes became the House of Israel). Therefore, look out for the counterfeiter, lucifer/satan, bringing the false messiah--the wilful king--the son of perdition from Judah. Just as Judas Iscariot was also from the House of Judah and he received the spirit of anti-Christ. From then the spirit of anti-Christ has been in the world.

There is not enough space on this website to tell all about the Tabernacle in the Wilderness but the greatest truth for believers in Jesus Christ is that only the priests could enter into the Holy Place, and only the High Priest could enter into the Holy of Holies--this is why it is important to note how many persons were in the camp in the wilderness--it confirms they could not all physically hold in the Holy Place.

After Jesus Christ opened the Lifegate (1 Cor. 11; 23-34) to whomsoever will, all believers have become priests unto God and unto man--the Royal Priesthood, the Holy Nation (1 Peter 2:9). This is why Christians stand at the Table of Shewbread which became the Communion Table at the Last Supper. Whereas before, only the Priests could eat at the Table of Shewbread today, because of Jesus Christ's finished work we partake of the Unleavened Bread (symbolic of His body), and the Grape Juice (fruit of the vine--symbolic of His Blood). This is why we are illuminated by the Holy Spirit represented by the Seven Golden Candlestick and why our Prayers in Jesus Christ's Name rise from the Altar of Incence to the throne of God out of the angel's hand. The Prayers of the saints are answered or they are put in vials for the appointed time (Rev. 5:8; 8:4). Jesus is the reason we can go boldly into the Holy of Holies with our praise and petitions because Jesus is our High Priest forevermore (Heb 10:19) and we "sit together in Heavenly Places in Him" (Eph. 2:6). Can we forsake so great a salvation? Can low living accompany such a High Calling? Should we be ashamed or shy to present this truth to those who do not yet know Him?

The following diagram shows the Salvation Plan in the Tabernacle in the Wilderness. God came down to deliver His people represented by the Ark of the Covenant. The Poreketh or Veil which separated the Holy of Holies from the Holy Place was torn by God from top to bottom when the Passover Lamb, Jesus Christ, died upon the cross of Calvary (Mt. 27:51), confirming that God had removed the separation and mankind could now be redeemed by the Blood of the Passover Lamb and be reconciled. Man now has to accept the sacrificial Passover Lamb on the Brazen Altar, wash in the Laver/waters of Baptism and open the door (Mawsawk) and enter into (Rev. 3:20) the Holy Place to be illuminated by the Holy Spirit, feed on the Unleavened Bread and the Blood (symbolic of Christ Jesus' redemptive work) to be renewed and regenerated (Rom. 12:2; Tit 3:5); while walking towards the Altar to become the Bride of the Lamb (Rev. 19:7). "...and I AM come down to deliver them ..." (Ex. 3:8). "... And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men unto Me (Salvation)" (Jn. 12:32). This is the fulfillment of those Scriptures.

Every single item in the Tabernacle of the Wilderness had great meaning and significance to God's Salvation Plan for man and His covenant with man. The details are in the book "The Everlasting Covenant".

The Cross of Jesus Christ
Upon examining the articles in the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies, it is seen that if a vertical line be drawn from the Ark of the Covenant to the Door, and an horizontal line be drawn where the Veil that separated the Holy of Holies from the Holy Place (that veil that was rent in twain from top to bottom when Jesus hung on the cross and said “it is finished”) is, it distinctly forms  a cross.
Now, many have said that the cross is “bad luck” and is from ancient times, but the cross that was from ancient times is the equal-armed cross that was, and still is used in occultism. The four equal arms represent the four cardinal points, namely, North, South, East and West, and the four elements so essential to occult philosophy namely,  fire, wind, earth and water. Later, these arms were broken to form the swastika—another occult symbol that was prominently used by the Nazis. Another myth is that the cross was symbolic of the ancient worship to the god, tammuz, but that symbol was actually drawn as a T –not a cross. Additionally, there was the Egyptian cross called the ankh, or tau cross, also called the crux ansanta—but this cross has a loop at the very top—not a plain vertical line.
The Cross that symbolizes the crucifixion of  Jesus has a long vertical line and a crossbar near the top. Although this Cross is only referenced in the New Testament, Psalm 122 speaks of death by crucifixion. Believers who were in traditional Judaism are taught that the symbol of the Cross is persecution and should not be in any place of honour. And this traditional teaching is now being listened to by some who were never into Judaism. Some are being told to take off the Cross. However, the apostle Paul was of the Jewish Sanhedrin and persecuted Christians before his personal encounter with the risen Jesus Christ on the road to Damascus preached on the Cross of Christ. The Scriptures are below:
For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel; not with wisdom of words lest the
Cross of Christ should be made of none effect. For the preaching of the cross is to them that
perish foolishness; but unto us who are saved it is the power of God (1 Cor. 1: 17-18).

But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ; by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. (Gal. 6:14).

And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby. (Eph. 2: 16).

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Whereby God has highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name (Ph’p. 2:8,9).

For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ; whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame who mind earthly things ( Ph’p. 3:18).

And having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven (Col. 1:20).

Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross. And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it ( Gol. 2: 14,15).

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of God ( Heb.12:2).

   Of course believers should not worship the Cross as an object, but consider what it represents to those who know Jesus Christ—the  symbol of liberty as they remember that His death on the cross was to ransom them from death and hell as Paul knew intimately.
