THE TABERNACLE

This website, The Virtual Tabernacle, is a journey to the presence and favor of G-d. The entire Tabernacle with its furnishings, gate, door and veil reveals the Messiah and His two missions:

1. His First Coming as Redeemer, Savior, Deliverer and Healer and
2. His Second Coming as King and Priest upon the throne of David after the order of Melchizedek.

The Tabernacle is also a “Blue Print” of G-d’s Holy Temple not made with human hands, but built of living stones into a spiritual house; G-d’s dwelling place in the Spirit (2 Cor. 5:1; Eph. 2:20-22; 1 Pe 2:4-6).

HOW TO NAVIGATE THIS MAP

Moreover, each item of furniture in the Tabernacle has a prophetic meaning, which is described below.

It is also connected to a portion of the website which will expand on this meaning and bring focus on how it is being exemplified in my experience, and in the world today. Click the link called “CONNECTED TO” to access each of those portions. May you gain insight and revelation of our G-d’s mighty love and wisdom as He leads His people in clear ways. And may you become part of His household, to the glory of His name. Shalom shalom.

THE GATE:

When we confess with our mouths that Yeshua is Lord and believe in our hearts that G-d raised Him from the dead, we are saved from the second death (Ro 10:9; Rev. 20:14; 21:8; 2:11). However, we need more, just as the one who entered the Gate with the proper sin offering needed deeper consecration to enter the Tent of meeting. Similarly, to proceed through the Door into the Holy Place and through the Veil into the Holy of Holies, we need deeper understanding of His “Blue Print” of salvation and of His Spiritual Dwelling Place: G-D’S UNCHANGEABLE CALENDAR. G-d’s “Blue Print” is laid out in the Torah, the Writings and the Prophets, while its fulfillment, how it works and what it will be is described in the New Covenant Scriptures.

ALTAR OF BURNT OFFERING:

Where the life of the sinner ends and a pleasing new life begins through repentance, faith and confession in Yeshua. All animal, fowl or cereal (meal) offerings were burnt upon this most holy altar, making a pleasing odor to the L-RD (Lev. 1:9, 13, 17; 2:2-3, 9-10).The high priests’ ordination required a week of such daily sin offerings by fire. While serving G-d as His Royal priesthood (1 Pe 2:9,) we also must pass through fiery trials that ordain and consecrate us in this most holy ministry. ALL fire offerings were salted (Lev. 2:13), even as we must be “salted” with fiery trials that prove the genuineness of our faith (1 Co 3:13-15; 1 Pe 1:7; 4:12). Moreover, we should have salt in ourselves (Mk 9:49-50) and in our speech in defense of our faith as well (Col. 4:6). Hence, salted with the Word of Life and Truth, may we be a sweet savor offering upon the altar of the cross, unto the L-RD our G-d. Amen.

LAVER:

Washing with the water of the Word cleanses and sanctifies our conscience (Eph. 5:26; Heb. 9:14). Rather than conform to this world, we must die to it and be transformed and metamorphosed by the renewal and regeneration of our minds [our sub-consciousness], and be cleansed of the past (Ro 12:2; Tit 3:5). We must set our minds on things above, foregoing things of the earth (Col. 3:1-3), lest we have no share in the Body of Messiah (Jn 13:5-10), just as an unclean priest could not enter the Tabernacle proper and failure to wash before ministering at the altar or in the Tent of meeting would incur death(Ex 30:-21; 40:30-32; Nu 8:6, 15, 21-22).

THE DOOR:

Yeshua said, “I am the Door; if anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture”. Even the hopelessly lost sheep, when they hear His voice calling them by name, will follow Him (Jn 10:2-3, 9; Lk 15:4-7). Yeshua is both the Door leading into the Tabernacle as well as the Tent of meeting itself, which represents His Body. By Him alone, we who are foreknown, predestined, called and justified by His blood, may enter in (Ro 8:28-30).

MENORAH:

Messiah Yeshua is the Light of the World bringing the light of life to all (Jn 1:4, 9; Job 23:29-30); He is the Living Word of Truth (Jn 1:1-5) Who brings understanding of times and seasons(Eccl. 3:1) so that we not perish for lack of knowledge (Hos. 4:6; Rev. 3:5, 11). Through His prophets, the Holy Spirit teaches on world events and on the role of Israel in G-d’s plan of salvation (Jn 4:22; Mt 15:24; Rev. 1:1-3; Ro 11:11-12, 15, 25-29). Thereby we are warned of unimaginably wicked deception soon to engulf the whole earth that if possible, even the elect would be deceived (2 Thess. 2:9-10; Rev. 13:13-14; Mt 24:24; Mk 13:21-22).

TABLE OF SHEWBREAD:

Messiah Yeshua is the Bread of life (Jn 6:35, 41, 48, 50-51). He was sent only to the 12 tribes of Israel (Mt 15:24; 10:6; Mk 7:27), represented on this most holy furniture by 12 loaves of bread which are renewed daily. Although Yeshua came to Israel only, the whole world flocks to Him for the Bread of life, even as all the earth flocked to Joseph in Egypt for bread who had been sent for Israel alone to keep them alive (Gen. 41L57; 45:7). Church teachers (Ja 3:1; 1 Co 12:28; Ro 12:7) must now feed the Lord’s sheep with this Bread, the Word of life, continuously renewed and refreshed in the Holy Spirit Who leads us into all truth (Mt 28:20; 1 Cor. 2:12-13; Col. 1:28; 3:16; Jn 16:13).

ALTAR OF INCENSE:

Messiah is our Intercessor, our Mediator between G-d and man (1 Tim. 2:5; Heb. 9:24). Watchmen interceding on behalf of the Church, Israel and the world (Jn 16:23-24, 26; 15:16) enter into a most holy ministry declaring and releasing the Word of His perfect will and purpose into the earth (Isa. 55:11; 1 Jn 3:22; 5:14-15; Ps 103:20-21), and worship in Spirit and in Truth (Jn 4:23).

VEIL:

Through Messiah, G-d reconciled the world to Himself, overlooking all trespasses (2 Cor. 5:19) and freely forgiving the repentant sinner (Ro 3:4; 5:19; Jn 8:36). True believers must forgive just as freely (Mt 6:12-15; 18:22-35; Lk 17:3-4; Eph. 4:32; Col. 3:13) in order to be holy as He is holy. Without holiness, we shall not see G-d (Mt 5:48; 1 Pe 1:15; Heb. 12:10, 14), for holiness is a must. Any hidden sin or blemish in the High Priest ministering in the Holy of Holies would ensure death by the Holiness of G-d. Contamination by unforgiveness, resentment, bitterness, or hatred (Heb. 12:15), prevents us from entering into His Presence.

ARK OF THE COVENANT:

Messiah Yeshua, Son of David, Son of Abraham, Son of Adam, Son of G-d (Ps 2:7; Mt 1:1; Lk 3:38) is the fulfillment of the Ark which reveals Messiah’s fullness as both Man and G-d (Col. 1:15-20); His mission as Savior (Ro 6:3-11; Heb. 9:28); and His Coming Reign in the order of Melchizedek, as both Priest and King (Ge 14:18; Ps 110:4; Zech. 6: 12-13; Heb. 5:6, 10; 6:20; 7:1, 10-21).
