The Red Line In the Tabernacle

THE BLOOD-RED LINE In the first fourteen verses of Exodus 26 Moses identifies a blood-red line in the Tabernacle… over 45 feet long. Did you miss it? Within those fourteen verses we learn something else about that line: It involves Christ’s human and divine natures—how they blend, but remain separate It is the final part of a countdown… yet connects with the future It is involved with Redemption and obedience It is red because of something unexpected In this part we will look at the verses closely, for they not only determine where the line is but also give the details needed to put a date on the line. VERSE 1:  Moreover thou shalt make the [a] tabernacle with [b] ten [c] curtains of [d] fine twined linen, and [e] blue, and purple, and scarlet: with [f] cherubims of [g] cunning work shalt thou make them. [a]  This is talking about the tabernacle (in contrast to the sanctuary). The tabernacle focuses on the building the sanctuary is in (Numbers 10:21). Christ identified His BODY with the tabernacle, or temple (John 2:19,21). In the New Earth, after sin is taken care of, there will be no temple, for the Father (Lord God Almighty) and His Son (the Lamb) are its temple (Rev 21:22). [b]  The number 10  is used to express God’s blessing in our lives in various areas. In...

Can’t You See? Don’t You Understand? Part 1

  Scientists readily accept the depth and complexity of the natural world and are open to explore her treasures and mysteries with a variety of instruments and approaches. But what about students of the Bible? Do not both nature and revelation have the same Master Mind as their source? “Since the book of nature and the book of revelation bear the impress of the same master mind, they cannot but speak in harmony. By different methods, and in different languages, they witness to the same great truths. {Ed 128} But we must approach both with a spirit of meekness....

What the Tabernacle says about the COUNTDOWN, JUDGMENT, DISAPPOINTMENT, REMNANT, and the GOOD NEWS

SANCTUARY 201 – CLASS 4 Topic for study: What the design of the Tabernacle says about 1844 The Countdown that begins in the Courtyard How the tabernacle is associated with Judgment. The surprise element foretold (the disappointment). What characteristics help the Remnant to make it through Where the Good News is portrayed in the Judgment. First we need to make a distinction (again) between the tabernacle and the sanctuary The tabernacle is the building, the house, the body, the structure, place of defense & refuge, the man, the resource The sanctuary is the furnishings, the home, the organs of the body, the spirit of life, place of learning, the woman, the application of the resources THE COUNTDOWN The 6th panel of the goat hair curtain (Ex 26:7-9)      Imagine going home this evening and checking your computer for any email messages, or turning on the TV, or getting out your cellphone to make a call, and you see only a blood-red screen with the number 10 on it. It stays on for a whole minute and you can’t turn off the monitor or TV or cellphone. You go to your neighbors to tell them of the strange incident, only to find that they also experienced the same thing. You call the police to see if they know anything about it, and they are just as puzzled, for they, too...

1844 (the year) IN THE DESIGN OF THE TABERNACLE

Sanctuary 201 Class 5 GROUND RULES The first thing we need to do when starting a new game no one has played before is….? [lay down the ground rules] The Tabernacle also has ground rules. The Courtyard represents things happening on the earth The Tabernacle represents things happening in heaven From the last class we learned that the Tabernacle is different from the Sanctuary, though they work together. The Tabernacle works mostly with the basics, the foundations, and that is what we are considering today. Because heaven works on different levels than earth, we can expect God to alter some earthly things to better represent the heavenly. It had its own cubit (for measurement of size) Eze 43:13 “The tabernacle was so constructed that it could be taken apart and borne with the Israelites in all their journeyings. It was therefore small, being not more than fifty-five feet in length, and eighteen in breadth and height.” PP 347 [The structure was 30 cubits long and 10 cubits high. A regular cubit was 18”, or about a foot and a half. 10 x 1.5 feet = 15 feet. So the prophet saw that Ezekiel’s measurements were applicable to the first Tabernacle as well.] It set the standard on the shekel (for measurement of value) Exodus 30:13 (1/2 shekel for the sanctuary offering) Lev 27:25 (It set the standard for all...
