Base of the column – the judgment – Isa 53, Gal 4:4
Top of the column – Christ our Redemptor – Job 19:25, Isa 15:9-20, Rom 3:24
Iron edge between columns – Unity of the Gospels – Beg of the opening of the opening
of Jesus Christ. Mt 28:19, Jn 17:11-21, Ac 10:38 - Doors of the atrium – Entrance

The Atrium – Christ between the people as Savior. Exod 2:9-15, 38:9-17
Linen Curtain – Justice and holiness of Christ - Acts 3:14, Eph 4:24, I Pet 1:6, I Jn 2:1,
In the atrium – the columns resemble the column in the opening
Top & bottom means believers cemented in the 1)word of God, 2) redeemed by the
Blood of Christ, and 3) united all together. Rom 3:24-26, Eph 6:15, Ps. 119:105-106;
Eph 4:13-16, Gal 3:2
In the opening – Jesus Christ who represents the total word – Jn 1:1. The blue states He
descended from heaven to become royalty in His divinity because He did not take to
Himself that He was God and He did it because He loved the world and humanity so the
remission of sin and His bloodshed was necessary to forgive the world and it was
necessary that the Son of God become man.
Angels guarded the tabernacle. A high priest would be at the entrance of the atrium.
(Aaron) The other priests were assistants at other areas.
The linen twisted at the bottom of the curtain means that His perfect glory & justice is
with God and Him the Son. It was necessary to obtain salvation in order to come in His
beautiful presence because He says I am the Way, Truth & the life. At the entrance there
are only 2 ways to enter. The way and the non way. See Ac 4:12. God says I am the
door. See Jn 10:9, Jn 10:1.
The other 5 columns have importance:
1. Column 1 – the ministries given to the people of God when they chose to be
someone in His Kingdom – 5 fold ministry. See Exod 2:16. These represent the
opportunity 4 all human being who choose to relate with the opportunity to enter
the sanctuary. (you as a pastor has the opportunity to enter the sanctuary – the
deeper things of God) Matthew 24: 4-31 gives opportunity to enter the sanctuary
– 5fold ministry.
Colors of the curtain – NT written for different groups of people.
Matthew – Jews
Mark – Romans
Luke – Greeks
JOHN - CHURCH
The 4 Gospels were written for different people. Purpose – constituted that no one is
excluded from salvation in Jesus Christ who at the same time is given the opportunity of
the N/S/E/W indicating that salvation is for the whole world.
In the furnishings – appoints some East or West that also forms part of that idea of that
truth. Some facing to the North means something. Special meanings of placement.
North – means the Jews – carries the Menorah.
South - Bread – means the Romans
East - Incense – the Greeks.
West - Ark – John in the Church.
***5 fold ministry – Ephesians 4:11***
The utensils represent Christ in some aspect and that the tabernacle would not have
importance if there were not sacrifice involvement. Therefore, anyone who gets close to
the entrance must have brought an offering that constituted a remedy for the sin
committed in which the same way we observe this offerings as Christ Himself that offer
Himself one and for all. Heb 9:28.; I Jn 1:9; Heb 4:16
The tabernacle was cons6tituted by Moses in the desert so that he lectured for the church
and the significance of the spiritual priesthood in the order of the priesthood, the
sacrificial and celebrations that was due annually. One of the lessons of the office that
was instituted the offerings of the people. The divine answer in the divine order given to
Moses. Ex 25:2-7.
The onyx stones and acacia wood was for the tabernacle and the priest. The incense and
(The Book of Romans – 5 pages)
(The Book of Angels – 5 pages)
The statute given to Moses from God and in which everyone voluntarily gave away what
they possessed. Someone had something to give to the tabernacle. It was not necessary
that they go back to Egypt to look for any help or what they needed. When each of them
would come and give offerings, it was the essential part of this communion or necessity
that was given to them, but it was not for then to believe that they were being unfaithful
or they were not the church. Example – they need to understand this was an essential
communion with God. Give generously and not regret or give grudgingly. God did not
want them to feel they needed Egypt or had to go beg for anything.
The first chapter of Lev speaks about 5 classes of offering. This resembles the sacrifice of
Jesus Christ. None can be described as the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. The 1st3 were
voluntary offering. The other 2 were obligated and because 1 was a peace offering, this
one was a representation of all of the one given and they had to represent that this was
given in peace.
It is not to say we should give what we have rec’d by grace, but it is a commandment –
Eph 2:8. 3 voluntary offerings are also the #3 of the divinity – Father, Son, and the Holy
Spirit. The other 2 that were obligated they represent the people. The sacrifice and the
offering was for worship & forgiveness of the sin, this offering fulfilled the purpose to
demonstrate worship gratefulness & devotion. The other means one for atonement, to
cover and take away sin & guilt. (Better to give than to receive)
From these offerings we learn the cost of sin & why we have to learn to forgive not only
us but other people. This is the system of God that says who wants to give life has to
change life. In the OT the life of the animal instead was given in order to save someone
from sin. It also demonstrated that God himself was giving His assistance by this animal.
This was only a temporary offer in the tabernacle because Jesus Christ would come to
redeem humanity forever. God did not have communion with man that is why he set the
tabernacle because man has sin. Sin had to be taken by atonement. Which means to pay
a price to delete, remove and repair our lives? This offering represents the love of God in
combo w/responsibility of man that results in peace that is over poor or over human
understanding. The love of God surpasses human understanding.
I. Leviticus – The Burnt Offerings
1. 1st offering described the sacrifice
2. Altar of bronze – sacrifice of Christ & salvation of world Ex 27:1-8, Ex
40:6-10, 10-29, Hebrews 9:13-14. From acacia wood. Horns at each corner.
Strainer at the bottom to collect the ashes (like a pallet at the bottom –
scooper/tray to catch the ashes). Made in form of a grid which would have rings
of bronze to hold the sticks. It had the acacia wood (2) like a large pallet which
was covered in bronze to transport the animals to the altar. Symbolic offering
means when they would bring the sacrifice it meant the identification of the
statute and the substitute of Christ. They would transfer the animal (clean it up),
and they would take and tie the neck of the animal with a red band which they
would burn the entire animal and offer to God called the burnt offering. The
smoke would go to the Lord as a sweet fragrance to God as voluntary as Christ
offered Himself. See Heb 9:14. that offering came to be the sacrificial – it was
cruel, but it was Christ who Himself in His death did not resist. At this offering,
he did not resist which was for the salvation of the whole world. He gave himself
voluntarily without possibility of being free. He never refused to reach for
something He could not give, therefore, He asked to give the Father His best. In
these offerings, the Israelis could bring herds, lambs, goats, sheep (livestock).
Also turtledoves, young pigeons. Whatever the category, you could also bring
herds or birds that had to have 1 male without defect or disabilities (without spot
or blemish). Lev. 1:1-17.
These offerings had to be what only they could give in their possibilities. God did
not look at the quantity or how big the offering, but that it was from the heart to
give what he possesses and the best of that possession. This offering becomes the
smell of the presence of God. Remember Elisha and the widow’s mite. She gave
from her heart. Jesus was also involved as he gave all of Himself.
Mobile – The Tabernacle (Expo)
The entrance of the atrium Gen 26
Exodus 38 - The altar
The offering of food & flour also known as vegetable offering as a purpose to
demonstrate honor respect to a God of worship, recognizing that everything we have
belongs to HIM.
Poem – I can not win god. 1 thing I have learned w/walking with God that I cannot beat
God when it comes to giving. Whatever I can give Him, he always wins me. He gives
much more than what I gave Him. If I don’t give is because I don’t have, but if I have is
because I give. It’s because when God ask me to give is because he wants to give me.
And when God gives me if because he wants to ask me so if u want to do the same thing,
so start giving him today and in a short time you will see that u can also say 1 thing I
have learned in my life, w/walking with the Lord, that I can’t win God when it comes to
This same pattern applies to all the offerings, God knows how much we can give, for
therefore, we cannot win God like the poem of Juan Romero. (100 sheep’s – song) In
the other hand, placing the hands on the victims head in the tabernacle was like during
the sacrificial animal means that this was to inform the innocent animal he was a victim.
Very painful way to kill the victim, but it was diff for the high priest to offer or kill the
animal. To offer one’s son for an offering. Moreover, it will be for God the Father to
know that Jesus was the substitute for the whole world. Isa. 52. The sacrifice was placed
in the altar in the North side. It is not a coincidence that Jesus Christ was precisely to the
North of Jerusalem & the Temple when crucified. Scriptures says in Matt 27:33-37 that
at Golgotha, the place of cadavers, gave vinegar mixed with honey, but after taste, Jesus
did not wan to drink this. When they crucified Jesus, his dressings were given away so
that the prophecy would be fulfilled in Isaiah about this event. They shared his dressings/
clothing bet more & more and sat there and guarded his stone. Over his head they wrote –
Jesus the King of the Jews. Think of the passage – is like the animal begin guarded and
the blood would be dripped in the vase by the priest – ritual taking place at the altar. The
vase was like a bucket which had a special purpose. The blood followed itself to the altar
then to the Ark of the Covenant (being sprinkled). Sacrificial place after diving the
animal in pieces and each piece was examined waiting to make sure there were no
abnormalities or birth defects. After washing intestines and legs, they were placed with
special wood on the altar – laid in pieces. On top of wood would be the head
symbolizing decision taking when the sacrifice was given voluntarily. The intestines
symbolized the emotions, feelings, affections, or warmness & compassion. Remainder of
the animal meant spiritual health. Feet of the animal meant to walk in holiness. After
sacrifice consumed, ashes would be picked up and placed near North of the altar where
the high priest had to change their clothing. Then the ashes would be taken out away
from the camp. In the totality of the tabernacle, the high priest in sacrifices, had the
power to represent Jesus Christ and glory to God, because that was the only lamb, that
gave only sacrifice and place mentioned in His word so that He could save human beings
from their sins. I Cor 6:20.
Find in Lev. 2:1-16. Very nice lecture.
The offerings of flower tog with the sacrifices are a present to thankfulness to the Lord.
Remember, this r4eminded the people of Israel that the food came from God and that He
is all in their life. In this offering, there are 3 types of grain offering that demonstrates
the divinity of the Lord: 1) the fine flower with oil & incense, 2) showbread cooked with
fine flour and oil, and 3) grain tree that are tender when it is growing. It would be toasted
with oil & incense.
This offering means that the absent of leaven symbolize the absence of sin. The oil
represents the presence of God. Part of burnt offering was burnt on altar so the rest of
priest would eat. Middle would toast with oil for the high priest to eat. Very tender. For
some people the offering would be stupid or insignificant. When we read what is
involved with the preparation – great meaning. Does not say why but for whom. No
common ingredient – leaven. It represents fungal disease or mode that would symbolize
sin. Same way the leaven raises the bread, same that sin grows in ones life. A little
leaven affects the whole bread. Jesus continually spoke of the analogy of lea4rning the
Pharisees and Sadducees Matt 16:6, Mk 8:15. The offering was seasoned with salt as a
remembrance of the pact or (the contract with the people of God.) Col 4:6. The salt is a
symbol of the activity of Gods life in 1 person that penetrates and preserves and helps to
cure. We are the salt of the earth because we speak the gospel of Christ himself. Mt
The Jewish maintained the tradition that to prepare for the Passover (pasha) or the Yom
Kippur. They prepare the house by cleaning the house completely. I Cor 11:28. Word
carries on the tradition. Said for a purpose. Therefore, test yourself. That bread could
not obtain honey because that would be something that a man would wish for. Contrary
to suffering and complete denial. Jesus says in Mt 16:24 if 1 wants Christ he must deny
himself. Another ingredient – incense. Why? Incense was the p4esents given to Christ
at birth. He received gold, frankincense &myrrh. Gold symbolize kingdom. Myrrh
represents the relationship. When incense place on fire, smoke produced grateful smell
or aroma. Fire from Gethsemane to the cross that brought the most fragrant smell &Y the
glorious frag4ance to Jesus when He went to the Father. All has been consummated in
that offering of our father the bread of life that has been accepted.

The offering for Sins which represents Jesus - Lev 4 & 5.
Observance to commandments to God – violating code or statute or covenant that was
est. in holiness in the pact w/God. It is subsequent the offer of sin that should be given to
priest that is anointed. In v3 and the consecration of Israel v 13, the governments of the
city of verse 22 or individual that was just another person from city in verse 27. This
offer was for the atonement that was characterized by the sprinkling of animal blood in
4:6 and verse 5. In this sacrificial offer, this was a variety of animals including males or
females that made emphasis in atonement. This was presented in order to put an ending
of impurity that was not intentionally done by the people in Lev 4:2 to say that this is the
omissions of sin. These are in the mind and in the heart that we have not sin. Perhaps
we don’t think that thoughts are wrongful thoughts or consequently 2reong, but in the
face of God, they are sins of omissions. Because of this not intentionally done, the
highest priest will anticipate a offering of sin in order to purify the believer by the blood
of Jesus Christ in which during the tabernacle time or period was the sacrificial animals.
Heb 9:12 & 14, I John 1:9.
There was a special offering for the omission in which Lev 4:13 talks about and in the
Greek or Hebrew language would be called Asham which means to be at fault and to
have a guilty conscious to be the offended. In the majority of case of the Asham
offerings, the offer (for guilt) would be similar to the offering of sin which is called
chatah (meaning sin) in the offering of the tabernacle and similar to guilt offering. They
represent the same condition and is to be ashamed and the only way this shame would be
removed is through this offer. In ref to that, u can find this in Isa 53:10 where Asham
appears to be described by the death of Messiah. This death of Jesus was the offering for
all the sins of the world. I Jn 2:2.
Many don’t know the meaning of the sin or the omissions. That is why the offer of sin
was 4 those who by negligence or weakness or maybe rebellious against God was used in
order to eliminate nullible sin of their lives. Notice that during this time of offering the
Lord spoke to Moses to help him observe the animals that was sacrificed and they will
differentiate between the classes of sin. Lev 4:3. The process of the priest in which he
was taken the young bullock to the tabernacle to the entrance of the tabernacle brought by
the priest. He will place the hand over the head to cut it. The 2nd priest would bring the
bull to the tabernacle – sanctuary and would sprinkle times in front of the Lord in which
the angel of God (Yahweh) would be waiting. The Old Testament says that this angel
was God Himself (Yahweh).
The rest of the blood of the bullock would be poured on the horns of the altar (v5-12)
13-21. Sin sometimes comes thru ignorance. The high priest when he sins – see vs. 23
For common people unconsiously sinning, they will come with an offering that had 1
characteristic. See 4:27-35. Female a clue to recognize that our nature has inclined us to
descend and we recognize it. We then honor and recognize and would prevent this from
happening. This is called in orientation to live a careful life. Why? Because it is a
female (emotional, weaker).
Clues or Points for confrontation of sin. Clean life & we learn to confront ourselves with
1. We must live a spiritual relationship. A) fidelity in the marriage. B) integrity in
your mind, hearts & bodies)
2. The sin is like cancer that extends rapidly and affects your life, church or a nation.
Remember, people that did wrong things back in Waco, TX (Jim Jones), President
Clinton and sex scandal, the Obama scandal with his preacher, Iraq war & Pres
Bush. God tells us to affirm ourselves that we could be liberated from these
3. Today, there are sins very common that we should offer an offering: a) to touch
things that are worldly and whether we consciously or unconsciously touch, we
should ask God to take care of our spirit and physical body.
4. We prevent to mix our activities with the spirit of God and conduct you in the
5. Don’t rush yourself to enter the ministry prematurely. With timing you could see
6. Be sure that you are constantly giving testimony of the faith in Jesus and know
that He is always your savior.
7. This is the most important one – for ministers. Lev. Leadership, ministers – be
modest, kind and humble yourself. A leader that is rude and obnoxious character
disfigures the nature of God. (break it or diminish or disrespect)
8. Prevent moral impurities in your life and in your spirit.
9. Prevent and reject every sexual impurity and immoral. Know what the opinion of
God on homosexuality is so that we consider that it’s a serious perversion. Rom
2. Even though He offers grace to homosexuals, but do not approve their
10. Recognize that we are inclined to sin by nature. When we recognize this, we try
not to do this. But not all the times.
11. Honor the servants of God with your offerings. (Give gifts to pastors)
12. Honor parents. Prevent taking them for granted. (Geriatric) Lev 19:32.
13. Study and know the Bible. *** Practice and lecture faithfully because God blesses
the obedience in those who consider Him by being faithful.
14. Know that God is worried about everyone He redeemed in the past and continues
15. Do not tolerate errors knowingly and consciously.
16. Oppose yourself to sin
17. You are responsible for those in sin and they have no conscious.
18. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit because the HS will give you conviction and repent
every time this happens.
19. Confess your sins quickly, frankly and openly. Don’t hide them because this
hardens your heart.
20. Every time that it is possible, do restitution for your sins there is no judgment
against you and you have genuine repentance.
Mt 5:37 – let our yeah be yeah and no be no.
The tabernacle should be sufficient to understand the covenant in order to fulfill our lives
with sincerity. It is the complete system with the sacrificial events that could help us
walk in and offering attitude of repentance and the desire to confess our sins.
The offerings of omission and the offering of sin was restitution for the holy things (of
the tabernacle and also the high priests). Therefore, even for those w/o intentions to sin
against God and in both cases have to sacrifice a calf without spot or blemish in order to
compensate the sins that had damaged more than 120%, in order to compensate the loss
of those sins that damaged more than 120% of yourself and time with God and became a
fine. Lev. 5:1-7.
The mercy of God is so big that he makes provisions for those who give the opportunity
to fulfill His demands. Lev 5:8-13, 14-18 gave him the restitution to forgive. In the
tabernacle not only do we see the whole picture, 1 person, 1 sacrifice, we see the whole
church. It is involved as the type of work that all humanity needs beaus the Bible says all
have sinned against God. II Cor. 5:21.
Every time the priest goes to the altar and sprinkle blood 7 times, he would say your sins
have been redeemed. Heb 4:16. I John 2:1. God tells us we have to live in holiness
because he is holy. In order scriptures he says to live separately from the world and walk
w/o sin and do not satisfy the flesh. But if one sins, there is provision for that person
because the desire of God that no one sins.
But if we walk in light, we have communion w/God by the blood of JC who cleans his
children from all sin. I Jn 1:7.
Lev 5:1, if one is called to testify and a witness saw or knew, and does not talk about the
sin; you will be responsible for the sin.
Lev 5:2-3 Sin of contamination. Prov. 23:7 – to not do and prevent a sin you don’t grow.
Prov 28:13 – Necessary to go in front of God every day (day after day) so that we have
no contamination in the after world. In other words, to promise you will try to how many
this. How many time s have we promised to do thing and we don’t do it. Eccl 5:4-7
Connect your mind with your tongue so we walk in the principles and confess sins so that
we bring offering in conformity 2 Word of God so that we have possibility of being clean
and the present of the Lord so that you don’t become a sinner by ignorance by the Word.

Offerings with Restitution. (Day of Restitution) – Lev 5:14 A rule that means
purification of sin for consequences of impurity – whether ritual or a violation in which a
vow that was not connected w/the economic condition of the individual. This law was a
provision for the poor. This is seen in the example of the mother of Jesus Christ when
she presented the doves in place of offering. See Luke 2:24 and Lev 12:8.
1. The reason the rituals were made, because people didn’t have enough money to offer
the offer of the lamb, therefore dove corresponded to the people who had less money in
the community. They still had to offer regardless of their resources.
2. Why? All in community of each tribe had to provide an offering for their sin. We
come directly to the Father by the Cross. In the OT there was no immediate access to the
Lord and only in the tabernacle. We could not ignore commandments of the Lord. If 1
did something prohibited, regardless of ignorance, they had to pay for sins and had to
bring a calf as an offering. Now we have the Word of God & if we fail, god does not
exclude ourself from reading the Word, but He gives us the opportunity that we can come
to Him & not ignore what is written.
3. Lev 6:2 – Trespassing and being a false witness. Also mentions different types of
trespasses and false witness against God and they had to make a complete restitution of
20% or 5th part of a calf as without blemish or defects for an offering. Anything
inappropriate is a sin. Proverbs 23:7 – thinking. Proverbs 28:13. Perfection of Jesus
Christ. Whoever sins against the Lord & receives retribution, in time God will cause that
person to give back even if the Debtor does not appear.
II. The Offering of Peace
Lev. 7:28 – this like many others are similar in rituals. One gives the offering of
peace as an expression of gratitude in the midst to establish a
friendship/relationship between God & himself. In ref to symbolic peace with
God that this person would offer – another could eat from it.
It corresponds to God & the priest. The breast, back, chest – Aaron & his sons.
This is also because the priest had to be full of affection, love, strength for all the
good work of the Lord, but not lazy. This is similar to the ministry. Ready for
any good work. The offerer (one who brought it) would correspond to the Lord
and the priests. Would stay w/the offering and go outside where he would roast
and eat outside the tabernacle with his family in his tribes.
This offering was a feast for everyone. He could invite other tribes to eat with
him to bring companionship. Like the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This celebration
was a feast – once and forever until wedding supper of Jesus Christ. Rev. 3:20
The unification of the children of God with the work we have given. After taking
the offering to the atrium or altar, you can also bring to the altar of bronze where
it (altar never empty and always full of blood) always had offerings of blood –
The high priest would wash their hands & feet before offering sacrifice. The
labor would be in the holy place but they had to be cleaned. The high priest
would go in trembling before entering the holy place. They knew they would die
if they did not wash their hands or feet.
The Event of the Atrium
Rectangular linen – Understand the event.
The idea was from God that He initiated the plan of redemption. He himself
imitated the plan, but God gave the order that this would commence in the holy
place in the 4 rooms of the tabernacle. This event was made in order to do the 2
courts (inner court / holy of holies).
The 2 courts
1. The holy place represents the celestial god that wants us to know that
salvation was not initiated by man but by God and that no man could create
any form that will permit to get to God. The only form that was established by
God was by JC himself who Christ told John (14:6). John 10:9 – He is the
door. Those who come in through the door will be safe and will find pastures.
That is why we need to understand the tabernacle. JC says He is the way – the
entrance into salvation. We also find JC that greets us by the priest and we
find salvation that would bring us into the presence or throne of God.
2. The presence of God – the throne room.
The Atrium – Exod 27:9-19, 38:9-17.
Means Christ w/n people as savior.
1. The linen curtain means justice, holiness of ‘Christ. “Ac 3:14, Ephj 4:24, I Pet 1:16, I
Jn 2:1, Rev 19:8
The columns and base of columns represents the believers cemented in word of God,
redeemed by the blood and united tog. Rom 3:24-26, Eph 6:15, Ps 119:105 & 106. Eph
4:13, Gal 4:28.
The stakes represents the love that sustains us. Isa?? (Hosea)?? 11:4, Rom 5:8.
The curtains was from fine linen twisted in which the linen was known in Egypt –
resistance. Represent justice of God. Resistant to attack. Altitude of curtains was 5
meters that would overpass human height. In order to keep others from looking inside.
The justice of God could not be equal to man’s justice. This is why it is a closeness so
that there would be seperation between God and man. Beauty. Not from gains, market
or business. Not for political movement. Not to promote doctrines or forms to gain any
personal objective, but only to portray the presence of the Lord.
Even in the day or night, this sanctuary from twisted linen was protection so that man
would be reminded of purity of ‘God. Promoted holiness. The only way one could come
inside was for offering purposes. Rom 3:10. No man was found just knew how to look
for God. All had sinned. I Cor 1:30. Justification, sanctification. God did not commit
sin. II Cor 5:21.
10 Columns in the front of the atrium– to sustain or hold the curtain. The plates were
silver symbolic of redemption. Freedom in which someone pd for rescue. Definition of
original redemption in which goes to the high priest. God redeemed through the high
priest for salvation. Rom 3:24
The columns was the cement God and they maintained the truth which is Jesus Christ.
The Bronze – fountain was a reticule of bronze that had a base and was for the priests to
be prior to ministering. We don’t know the dimensions. It is a purifier such as the Word
The Word of God for holiness, sanctification. Ex 30:17-21, 40:7-11, 30:32, Heb 10:22.
The fountain of bronze was of water for Aaron and his son so that they could wash their
feet to prevent death at the entrance. This was a perpetual statute for the generations to
come. We too have to wash our hands.
The fountain was placed between the altar of sacrifice and the store and was the only
object of bronze in the tabernacle tog with the furnishings inside the atrium.
This furnishing was a very brilliant bronze that looked like a mirror and had brilliance
would not diminish. There is no registering of the dimensions of this furniture, but its
part of Church of God. We have no limits or measurements. Only the fountain is
mentioned in the temple of Solomon – 10 meters. I Kings 7:23-40 and it is called the sea.
It is supposed that the tabernacle fountain was a simple way to facilitate its transporting.
The base of bronze was made from mirrors of women that would come to tabernacle for
reunion. Believed it was composed of 2 pieces. Base made of donated mirrors
volunteered by women. For beauty – symbolic. To look at us when we use it to see how
we look. It is believed that the church is the bride of JC and when the bride needs to be
prepared for the event. The mirrors are the word of God and the altar is the blood that
takes the sins. Fountain to clean and to wash away the sins. Jm 1:23-24, II Cor 3:18. Jn
15:3. Cleaned by the Word. Jn 17:17 – be cleaned with truth. Eph 5:25-28. John
13:8-10. Ps 119:9. Heb 10:22.
In the new pat – the sacrifice of Jesus Christ comes in the high priesthood as the only one
purified and had communion with the father. Heb 12:14. Without peace & holiness, no
one could see the lord.
All have to be cleaned or purified before the Lord. The same way the fountain has a
purpose, the same the table of showbread has a place. The chandelier and the altar of
incense have a place in the tabernacle.
The Store - La tienda.
It is the place where “God reigns. Num 3:25, 4:5, exodus 4r:26, 1-37. Eph 2:21-22. The
coverings of the store – from linen. Exod Isa 61:10, Philip 3:9. Covering of goat skin
(red dye tint)– Exod 26:7, Lev 9:3 offering of sin. Eph 5:2. The cover of calf tinted in
red. Exod 26:14, substitution in Gen 24:13, Isa 53:5. Brown - Exod 26:1-37 (badgers
skin) this served as protection. Ezek 16:10, Isa 53:2-3. [Badger like a beaver]
Exod 26 – the store of the tabernacle – dimensions. N/S – 20 pieces of wood that was
acacia wood. They were wrapped in oil, gold representing the church of Christ. The bars
in the back were gold. Bezaleel was given the precise instructions. Exod 26:1-13. He
picked the acacia wood that would be wrapped in gold very carefully. Much
workmanship to bring into perfection. This represents us as believers that we have been
cut, our feet has been trimmed and cut because Christ will bring us to repentance when
we listen to the Word of God. Each like a sword, he put us on earth so that we could
come to the house of God. Eph. 2:1. We are God’s craftsmanship representing the
church in reformation by the Holy Spirit. Like a tree with vines that has been twisted and
he sees in us what no one can see.
Jesus sees us as a hidden table in His tabernacle. He wrapped us in His beauty, glory,
and richness. We are His creation. Even though each wood was different, each fits
perfectly next to each other. This table was not independent with fruit from the earth, but
they depend on each other. We have to step away the eagle and our dependence has to be
from the Lord. Redemption is the base of what sustains the Christian by Jesus Christ. II
Tim 1:12. Eph 4:13. Exod 26:26-29. Eph 2:21-22.

Bars to the inner court are bars that sustained the church. Before they were put together,
there were no good for anything because they were no support. Ephesians speaks that
every bldg had to be coordinated together with God & the Holy Spirit. Eph 2:21.
Many say that the center that is covered with the curtain, but it is the center of the atrium
and means the number 5 (half) meaning grace. Death of Christ and saved by His death.
Symbolic number – 5 which came through the measurement. This number is also found
in the altar of bronze and it is the reminder that the church is sustained by the grace of
Isa. 11:1, Jn 1:1-2, Col. 1:17 – God’s deity is subject to plenty. Col. 2:9-10. Rom 8:35.
Rev. 13 says I am the alpha, the omega, the beginning and the end, the first and last. It
has been symbolized in Eph 4:3 that we are solidified in unity by the Holy Spirit. The
analogy is interesting. The materials of the bars are same as the measurement given and
remind us that everything matches in the tabernacle. Nothing is independent. The Holy
Spirit is only 1. Basing the unity with the believers in Christ that we are His
workmanship. Read Exodus 26:3-14.
It is so wonderful the beauty of the holy place. Let’s detain one moment and study of the
coverings of the store. Have u ever noticed any place in tabernacle that there is a chair?
Even if it did, we would not want to sit because we would not be able to form the work of
art that the tabernacle brings to it.
If you read in details of the tabernacle, when u enters thru the doors of the atrium, u will
stay in awe of the beauty of God. When u understands the tabernacle, you come to
appreciate Christ and the beauty and understand the things of God.
[NOTE – WRITE MY THESIS (MASTERS) ON THE TABERNACLE]
I Cor 2:14, the natural man can’t conceive the things of the spirit. It appears to be crazy
but is for things that can discern spiritual things.
Curtains – 10 types of linen woven together which cherubim’s that did the work. Exod.
36:8-13. A constitution of different colors. Blues, purple, and red. The celestial heavens
where Jesus came from. Where he’s from, stayed and lives. Every 50 yards of linen, 1
gold ring woven in between.
Covertures – justice. The character of Christ - Jn 14:1-3. The linen was a textile plan
(flax seed family) and measured in height planted you could pick up the large plant, cut
them and place them in the sun to dry. This was grown in the desert. The fiber was
course that would produce fine thread and goes thru the process of maturity that later was
strong. Christ was crucified after process of mocking, hit and blasphemy like the process
of the textile plant. [Cut when time to flourish] JC died in His plentiful youth, even this
curtain had different colors and had a distance and look totally white.
Rom 3:22-26. The justice of Christ is the cover of the church and was made of 10
curtains that each measured 28 mm in height and 4 mm in width. Exod 26:1-14. Also
represents the deity of God. Made in 2 pieces – each had 50 bows. The ties were blue
and 50 combined to tie the bow together. Each piece was united with another piece of
fastener made of gold and made it to appear like 1 piece. (Many members but 1 body)
White – holiness
Purple – royalty
Gold – the perfection
Red - redemption
Blue – celestial
Wood – human nature – compassion
Bronze of the laver was to purify
Jn 10:30-38, Jn 17:11 – 21, Jn 14:9-11. The Holy Spirit unites the father with the son.
The son is dependant totally of the HS. Would reveal himself to the father. The HS will
unite us with Christ. We are one and the HS reveals everything to us about Christ. Inside
the curtain was inside with cherubim’s.
According to Ezek 10, these cherubim’s where creatures that would appear with the 4
heads. 4 heads – 1) lion, 2) ox, 3) man, and 4) eagle. Ezek. 1:10. Ezek 10:10-14, Rev.
4:7. At the beginning of the entrance were the gospels. Then into the atrium, Matthew
represents Christ – Lion – the tribe of Judah. The King! Mark represents the ox as a
good & faithful servant to death. Luke represents the perfect man without sin. John
represents eagle that travels in the altitude such as Jesus that has His throne in heaven.
Each color of the covertures represents the 4 gospels representing Christ. Matt represents
purple – kingdom and royalty. This color has royalty and shows Matthew as the Gospel
of King. Matt shows the aspect of the character of Christ 14 times when He calls him the
son of David. The famous descendants that God promised to be perpetual in the throne
Mark means red – faithful unto death. The gospel of Mark who has the relationship with
the cover red or blood of Christ that shows the servant or the faithful suffering of Messiah
in the Christ.
Luke means white. No blemish or sin. The gospel of Luke has the fine linen that
symbolizes the perfect man. The character of just such as JESUS. This gospel represents
the savior as the character of men. It is the gospel – the son of men. Jesus is the Gospel
of the son of man. It is like a perfect man illustrating the necessity of the genealogy of
Dr. Luke who registered the ascendants of Christ.

John the blue (celestial), we see the gospel of John, Jesus like the son of god fulfills the
prophecy in Isa 40:9 when he said go up into the mountain. The tabernacle covering had
11 curtains that were made of the hair of goats. The terminology strictly of this covering,
Ex. 26. Covering w/o dye that Jesus lived a holy life without sin and because of that he
could ask who of us would have sinned. Jn 1:29; Jn 26:7. Lev 9:3 on the Day of
Lev. 9:3, Heb. 9:14, II Cor 5:2 desiring to be dressed with the celestial covering. When
we cry. One cover would extend to the back of the tabernacle through both sides and
then fold to the back in a way that it would show like a double. II Cor 14:14-18.
The back of the tabernacle represents the forgiveness of our sins by Jesus Christ (offered
Himself) so we have no sin. The tights to keep folded. Instead of gold, this was bronze.
Bronze signifies justice over Christ which fell over the justice. Isa 53:5, Isa 44:22, I Jn
3:8. Ps 32 (blessed be our transgression that is forgiven.
Blessed be the man that God does not blame for his iniquity. Ps 103:12, when u r far in
the orient, God means he takes us away into the desert. Jn 1:29. Act 16:32.
The covering dyed with red and then over with him. Same calf that Abraham used. Gen
22:13 Ex 26:14, this curtain extend over the posterior and exterior of and would stand
over 48 units and each world. This cover symbolizes atonement. Red meaning blood.
John 41:6) Moses, Abraham Isaac. John 3:16, Heb 9:22
Same material that the high priest clothing was consecrated to death. The same red is the
symbolism of the blood as the covering.
The covering of the badgers was exposed to the seasons of time (outside) it had no
beauty or color because it was very dark. When u can see the beauty of this badgers skin,
u had to come inside to appreciate the beauty because from the exterior was not
presentable or desirable. Read Isa 53:2-3. This skin was not an attractive skin but very
costly. Not abundant but only for the male badgers and good for protection. Also good
to make shoes. Ezek 16:10. He has stretched us and given us shoes. Linen for I have
covered you so this cover was necessary in which people believed this badger had look of
seals even this covertures will resist in the desert. All the climate, the rain, sun, wind as
Jesus Christ resisted everything until death and even the attack from Satan. All was for
our protection – Jn 16:33. All these things spoken for our peace. No measurements. The
covertures of Jesus Christ can’t be measured. He suffered all the attacks and temptation.
We must stay firm. The psalmist describes the tabernacle so into important parts, each
day we can read. Ps 64:1, Ps. 57:1, Ps 91:4. If we make a summary of this symbolism of
this covering, the linens, color & cherubim’s.
Hairs of the sheep
The Calf tinted in red
Cow represents Christ who shed his blood

The Holy Place. Enter into the East. Ephod and many other colors in the High Priest
coverings. Exodus 26:36-37 give s the description.
The entrance of the Holy Place has 3 entrances – 1 the atrium, 2 – the holy place, 3 – holy
of holies. Types of Christ – Christopology. We can apply Jn 14:6 that calls for these
places. The atrium is the way (Christ is the Way.) The holy place – He is the truth. Holy
of Holies – He is the life.
We consider that the door of the store has the same colors – bloue purple, red and the
same twisted linen that the high priest wore. The same columns made of acacia wood
wrapped with gold. The capitalist that holds top & bottom, bases were with bronze and
gold. The 5 columns was suggested it represent the 5 fold ministries. (Pastor, teacher,
evangelist, prophet, and apostle) Teaching – theological, bibical teachings, orthodox,
judaisms – anything to do with the gospel of Christ. Apostle ministry -
5 fold ministry - compliments the Body of Christ – Eph 4:11-12.
The intercessor of Christ – through the death of Christ.
5 columns also represent grace. The bronze in the columns reflect judgment. Matt 25 –
the coming of Christ is represented. Also in John. God is returning for a church without
spot or blemish. We all are judged by our actions – if we are high priest, in service, we
have to be careful how we conduct yourself.
Theo – Study of
Ology – Word of God
We examine ourselves when we start to get close to God. The respon that God has
placed in our hands as servants or workers in the Hand of God, we have to remember that
we have to have accountability for what we do. We have an opportunityh & privilege
that comes with responsibility.
The entrance represents Christ. He was made man. He was covered in royalty. Judged
us by His Word. He reigned with His glory. Jn 5:22. We must understand that every
minister has to be a type of Christ because he is who represents Christ on the earth. Even
thou we live in the world but not of the world and we are seated in the celestial places
with Christ. We must take our place and tell the world the place God has given me.
Reverends are people who have studied the Word of God and are a Master degree level.
A counsel has ordained you or someone who wants to give you coverature. You must
have a head and someone who represents you.
Pastors are different from Reverends.
We will be crowned in Glory. II Tim 4:8, I Pet 5:4, Rev 2:10. In the holy place - Heb
9:2. I Pet 2:9.
Candelabra – Jesus is the light of the world. Exod 35:21, Jn 8:6-12, Mat 12:15-16. Made
of hammered gold. 7 lamps of oil. Placed in the area that would light the holy place and
the priest in case they needed to read. Set on the left hand side of the entrance of the
sanctuary. Indicated the way of the East side – the illumination & direction of the Holy
Spirit. Made of gold and 7 lamps represents the perfection of the light, energy of the holy
spirit and also efficacies of the perfect work of Christ. Also means, we must go forth.
Exod. 25:31-40. On the South – left side – observe 3 types of furniture. Furniture made
of bronze which is table of showbread and incense. Wt of gold is 57kg. Very
spectactular. Process represented Christ or the handcraft of it. Isa 53 indicates that
Christ was beaten but now the light of the world. Jesus said I am the light of the world.
Those who follow me will be the light of the world. Jn 8:12, 9:5. I am the light of the
Rev. 21:23 – Jesus is the light and eternal life. We are not exempt from sin and not
exonerated from works or trials, but we can depend completely on him. Acts 14:22. Jn
16:33. In the craftsmanship – God has overcome the world. #7 in the lamp means
completion. The candelabra contains the stem (the rod) which represents Christ. Isa
6 arms represents men. 6 is the number of man. Rev. 13:18. god made man on day 6.
Center demonstrates the dependence of Christ. Christ is connected to man. Each side of
the rod represents man and the dependency on Christ. Jn 15:4-5. The number of the
churches – 7. WE are completed in Christ. The stem were 4 cups made like a flower –
flower of almond. 3 cups made like the apple flower. The creator created all fruit &
plants. The applies & almonds were popular in Jerusalem. At Passover, you eat crushed
almonds, apples. Sacrificial offerings. The priests could exercise the work that were
related to the altar and the incense. They could eat the bread from the table of the
showbread. We can contemplate the spiritual food which represents the Word of God.
Matt 5:16 – let our light so shine. Imitate God!
Also the stem in the candelabra of the craftsmanship represents the different stages of
Jesus Christ – childhood, youth and adulthood. Jesus grew in wisdom, height and grace.
Vertical and horizontal growth. No sin.
Revelation comes from what you have read and brought to memory what you have read.
Something hidden and has come to the light. Once revealed by the Spriti of God, it then
has revelation and spiritual discernment.
The lamps represents the knowledge of Christ. Lu 2:52. I Thes 3:12-13. We grow in
abundance… to perfect our workds in the ministry in order to edify the body of Christ.
We become unified by faith & knowledge of God. Eph 4:12-16. The superior part of the
candelabra contains oil that produce 1 only light in the holy place. Composesd with 7
lamps representing perfection. The 7 spirits in front of the throne. Exod 27:20, Lev.
The oil were prepared from broken olives and had to be pure. Utilitized for diverse
purposes – 1) anoint the high priest as king , 2) anoint furnishings, 3) anoint food. This
oil was typology of the Holy Spirit. Type of Christ. The Green Olive – Christ! Rom
11:17. After the Holy Spirit we are then broken.
Golgotha, Jn 19:16-19. Was given to be crucified. John 16:7-15. 7 faces of the Holy
Spirit. 1) the spirit of God, 2) spirit of understanding, 3) spirit of knowledge, 4) spirit of
power, 5) spirit of counsel, 6) spirit of wisdom, and 7) spirit of fear of the Lord.
With the help of the HS, we continuously try to stay in Him. Messiah in Hebrew and
Christ in Greek is translated as anointed. Luke 4:18-21. Act 10:38. Jesus of Ansadad.
Luke 18:19. Every Christ needs the Holy Spirit is given by Luke 4 to continue to have
the light of Christ. The oil was also given to give light continuously. Jn 14:14.
Cleanliness is also revealed in the flowers. [Daily living].
Results are wonderful. The wick in the candelabra could only be used for 1 day. Phil
3:13. Continue daily. Instruments God uses to take us thru the process of craftsmanship.
God glorifies himself. Matt 5:16. The plate that holds the wick in the candlelabra means
that the work we have completed and become ashes and are presented at the altar for
sacrificial confirmation. God does not forget. Matt 6:1-4, Col 3:23-24. Do everything
with your heart.
We are the light. Rev. 2:5

The Table of Propitiation and the meaning of propitiation.
The table of showbread in which the opposite side of the menorah was the candelabra in
the Israeli language. Made of acacia wood – overlayed with solid gold. Surface 3 x 1 ½
ft. 12 loaves of bread representing 12 tribes of Israel. They were placed on that Saturday
where they were going to have the Holy Suppeer and replaced on the other Saturday.
The high priest ate the replaced bread – representing Christ which is the Bread of Life.
Also called the table of presence of God. It was in the holy place in which Exod 25:23
explains the significance of everything on that table. Mt 27:37 gives you more of the
bread of life.
Each plate had incense on top because that was a perpetual pact in front of God and that
is Exod 25:23. Lev 24:5-9 – pesaj. The Holy Supper was instituted in the Catholic
Church, made for the God of Sun – the Vatican in the Constantine – Mother Martha of
preparing a similar bread. Had King Sirius.
On the other side of the tabernacle – when we enter by the candelabra would lite up and
shine. The purpose was to shine upon the bread – God is the significance and to reveal
the presence of God at all times, close to the table fo the showbread. This verse in Lev
24:5-9 explains this. I Sam 21:6.
Also, the altar of bronze is tog with the sacrifice and necessary to observe the unity.
Made of acacia wood and to exhibit this bread continually. Recognized and contained
the bread of propitiation – the presence of the Lord. It had 2 crowns as belts and were
placed in the superior part of the tabernacle & this table represents the humanity of Christ
and His divinity. Also represents the same opp that King David had like God himself –
the King of Kings. Mt 27:37 – the King of the Jews. He represents the crown that was
placed on His head in which here is the King of the Jews. Jn 17:5, now the time has
come when on your side & the hour come, I will be with you before the world was done.
Jesus knew what was to come so in the tabernacle before jesus death, He was already
instituted by the Father and all this would take place and He would be crucified. In Rev.
19:16 the showbread and crown represents dressings and thigh area – the name is written
King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Therefore we see that jesus was made smaller than the
angels but crowned with glory and honor until His death so that the grace of God would
take place for us. Heb. 2:9.
Inside the bread, labor is represented in the earth. Signifies total dependence on the
Father. Jn 17:4. The other crown, square would not let the bread fall – showcase that
prevents anything from falling from it. The presence of God was continual until all the
bread was eaten. The priest would go the high place anyday he had to go to the High
place. The incense also had a place which was all the time representing the presence of
God. Symbolizing the adoration. Exod 30:1-20. I Cor 12:18-28. Worship symbol.
Bread is also a reminder that the 12 tribes was totally dependent on God not only placed
there for them to eat, but also they would know not to go back to paganism. The Levite
tribe was the only ones allowed to eat the showbread. Each son of the Levites had a job
Very important part of eating of the bread – Jn 6:35-58. Bread that descended from
heaven is Jesus and given to the world. He is not like manna eaten by our fathers. The
word of God is the bread. Showbread made of fine flour and is symbolic of the mysteries
that surrounds the holiness of Jesus Christ. The bread made made without leven, which
was pure. Family of coat (tribal coat) were in charge of this job and the brothers had the
bread of propitiation and had to put tog the day of rest. I Chron 9:22. type of Christ – no
leven. Also represents men without sin. The bread made with holes – baked and passed
by the fire symbolizing the trial Jesus endured. Also represented holes in his head, feet,
side, hands & feet which converted itself into the sins of the world.
2 colums of 6, total of 12 – 12 tribes of Israel, but also represent the church and the 12
apostles. In the symbolism, 6 not only the # of man, but also gove’t of human kind. We
must obey the gove’t statutes. Also represents divine gove’t of heaven. In the
showbread, showed that not only is He the saviour but sufficient to save the world and
each bread plate like each of the tribes – ea bread represented the position of the tribe and
also the differences that the blessings were special for each and not the same. Body with
many members with many functions.
Same way we knead the bread, Jesus also kneads man. This would be served to the kings
or to someone that was hosted and symbolism the people with God. The author of the
goods were the Israelis and they were employed by doing this service. I Pet 2:9. This
representation in communion, the people have to offer to God during those 7 days as the
offering of food. The fact that the bread was here for a few days – the table, they needed
protection. This is why the incense was the protection of this place and it was a special
incense coming from a tree from white color and smelled bitter. Special tree that gave
this aroma. Burned on the altar when the high priest would eat the bread and the aroma
would be all over the Holy Place. This same incense is mentioned in some of the
The incense represents something with the bread. It was the only way to maintain the
holy place, but also keep away insects that would be on the bread. Incense was so bitter
but it was also the type of suffering Christ suffered. The priest would feel this. I Cor
11:26. They would be reminded of Christ. Our communion with Christ should be
constant. Utensils, plates, spoons, covers, cups, mugs that this offering was the presence
of God that was poured at Golgotha and the utensils the symbolic stewardness. A
steward of the Lord – Mt 20:38. The son of Man, he didn’t come to be served, but to
II Tim 2:20-21 explains when you have a big house, we not only have utensils, but wood
and everything had to be honest. The shew bread represents when jesus sat for the Last
Supper. The High Priest also had this the same as we have the same to sit in celestial
places. Eph 2:4-7.
Altar of Incense
Were the symbolic place of the eternal worship and it was placed in the holy place in
front of the veil. Made of gold. Christ our Mediator. Exod 30:1-10, II Cor 2:14, I Jn 2:1,
I Tim 2:5. Made of acacia wood. Overlayed with pure gold. Walls were pure gold.
Horns pure gold. 2 rings had gold over the metal bars. Mjade also from acacia wood.
Aaron would come ev morning to burn incense in the day & night.
This was the 3rd furnishing in the sanctuary. The Father, Son & Holy Spirit – before
entering the Holiest Place, here were the altar of incense placed with the elaborate
curtains. The fragrance would fill the chamber of the Holiest Place. This furnishing was
the same of the table of showbread. Has the same – crown like the altar of bronze with 4
horns. Measures same and many controversies of the dimensions. The consistency of
each of the furnishes had to be worked with. They couyld not be the same size and
Largest piece of furniture due to the sacrifice. They were eating and washing
continuously. No furn. Was more important that another. All had its own purpose and
they had the same purpose as the Body of Christ. The combo of wood represents God.
Furn was directly to the veil – the the East of the Holiest place and placed in front of the
ark of the covenant but sepearated the altar of incense.
When the order of the furnishings are in place it is the form of the cross. See the order
and you will see the cross. Symbols of intercession and wisdom. The 2 sticks in the
tabernacle are symbolic. Rom 8:1
2) Holy Spirit
3) Rom 8:26 – the superior part of the crown was to sustain the incense so that it
would not fall on the floor.
4) Heb 2:9
5) Christ crowned with glory intercedes for us.
When we come into His presence, we are crowned and when we get close to the altar, we
worship in adoration. This is symbolic of the altar of the incense. We see the altar, when
the sacrifical place took place with the priest, the blood was in the horns and symbolic of
the horns. Placed in eachg corner – the cardinal places of the earth. 4 strategic places in
Lev 4:7 – the blood from the sacrifice were placed on altar of bronze & at the door of the
tabernacle. Exod 30:10 – Day of atonement. For all generations to come. Lev 16:15-19
– the observation of the process of the intercession that takes place. Lev 4:7. altar of
incense in the tabernacle in locations the sons of the ones that were taken from the
animals. Aaron was not alone. No one could go in front of him.
This was a precious time, but also pressured. It was the presence of almighty God. The
disciples could not even pray for an hour. The blood that came from the forehead from
Jesus, but only the angels could come, separate and give light for all humanity. He would
take the blood over his fingers. Also this represents washing his hand. Christ gave up
and finished all by sacrificing Himself. The relationship with the altar of bronze and
incense has the siginificance of power. Rom 1:16.
In the altar – pwer of salvarion
In the incense – Heb 4:14-16 power for men. Trusting God in grace. When we know the
biblical passage omitted in Ch 25-27, in the order of passage. Ch 27 order does not
come through until ch 30.
Furn culminates the completeness. The holiest place. Intermediate place between God
and man. Study the furniture as a symbol of worship – day & night.
Exod 30:7 (read the lamps & oil). Consider the bibilical passages and citations. Lev
16:12, Nu 16:46. The same way the oil & incense was burning, they had the same
operation day and night. Orientals copy from the tabernacle system to worship their
gods. Heb 13:15. Incense of recipe could not be altered or imitated. The 2 tribes –
Nadab & Abiu remembered could do nothing. Represents the excellence of Christ – God
is the only substance of worship. Exod 30:34-37. The altar of the incense that had
In this incense tree, no extraction was required. Worship belongs to the Lord. The oil
was a destraction. 2 interpreations. 1) work should be easy with no problems, 2) shold
come from the heart. Ps 130. Plant from India and would give rest. Lu 18:10 – Publican
and Pharisees. Ps 51:17.
Incense was the same when Jesus was born in Bethlehem. White & bitter. Beat into fine
powder. Necessities in our life represents fine powder. When we are cut and stuff are
finished, we can come to the presence of God and ask God to help. It should have the
aromatic smell of Christ and unadulterated. Whoever is called of Jesus Christ should
have a humble heart. Don’t go with any inventions that will go agains what you are
hearing. 4 ingredients represents Christ.
The incense area is part of the priest that would be pure gold. Part of the interior that
would be placed somewhere within the tabernacle. No specifications. II Chr 4:2, Lev
10:1, Nadab and Abihu. 250 in the familhy of the Levities, this was utilized daily.
Plenty to do this and was to be used in the Holy Place in the Day of Atonement. I Ki
7:50 tells of their homes. Heb 9:3 ark of the covenant.,
Inside the Ark of the covenant, the rod of iron and the tables of the pact. Author writes.
This would be somewhere close to the furnishings. II Cor 2:14.
Was a curtain dividing the 2 rms from the tabernacle – holiest and holy. Heb 9:4, II Cor
2:14-15. The death of Christ. Exod 26:1-35 explains all the elements. The veil Mk
15:38 was broken and represents free access. Mt 22:50.
The Work of Christ - broke the 4 columns in the church. The man hanged on the cross.
Sin of man was broken. Exod 36:1-23. Veil was broken and the holiest place was
discovered & opened. That is the death of Christ. Heb 10:19.
The Holiest Place – Christ in his throne. It was the interior room, the form, perfect
cubicle and separated from the sanctuary and curtain of the veil. Most dedicated work of
the structure that surrounds the holiest place.
Chamber & Presence ofGod – Day of Atoenement annually to make reconmcilliation of
man representing communion of the soul with man. Chamber was secret place of the
most highest God where we can come ikn by the Blood of jesuys, byu His death and the
light that surrounds the glory of our lives.
Ark of the Pact and the Propitiator. Ex 25:10-11. The arkwas the only furn in the holiest
place and measured. Inside you had the 2 tables of stone – Mosaic law. Kept there from
dessert. Symbol of authority in Christ hood. Transport once per year and 2 rings to stick

1. The ark contained the perfect justice of Jesus. 3 things inside the ark: a) tables of
the pact, b) the rod of aaron, and c) the manna. As a reminder that God was their
God and they were His people.
2. Heb 9:4, around the ark, there was an incense toward the east side of the ark to
keep the bread from rotting inside the ark.
3. The first registry of the bible in which the bible shows any law – was the law of
Moses, the tables of the tablet of the law. The one that Jesus points out in His
gospel that He did not come to abolish but to fulfill the Law.
4. The same ark had to have Jesus heart in its nature because the tablets was the
perfect justice of God. The divine law was kept in His chest and He brought it in
perfection with justice for all the people. Jesus was the only one who kept this
law because no one would keep the law and noone could do the law. A metaphor.
5. Ex 25:16 explains why it was given the ark of the testimony. Ps. 40:8 speaks of
the tablets. To do God’s will is to have God’s heart. Mt 9:13. Same theme tx by
the Isa 1:11-17, Jer. 6:20
6. Ex 20:1-17 – tells of the words in the tables and after that Moses put it in order.
1st recital of the tables. The 1st table contains the 1st 4 laws. They were written
vertical – from men to God. 2nd table contained another 6 laws – horizontal –the
contract with men to men.
7. In Jesus – the law was fulfilled and the prophets. Mt 5:1. The bible says Jesus
grew in grace and height. Vertical. For man it was horizontal. This gave him the
auth to resume these 10 laws in only 2 laws.
8. Knowledge, grace and height. Vertical. With man – horizontal – auth to resume
the 10 laws in 2. Mt 22:37-40. Gal. 3:13. Gal 3:24-25. Christ fulfilled the Law
and when this was done, it came into us the redeemed one. He writes it in our
hearts, mind, and has given us the Spirit of Help and guidance so that we don’t
violate or break the law. Heb 8:10.
II. The manna – bread container. [vase]
1. Moses, Exod 16:14-15. Made of gold and crafted beautifully. The constancy in
the provision from God in which He provides to us the celestrial bread. Ex 16:34.
Jesus is the manna. John 6:32-58. Defined: discovery of the typology of Christ.
A) He was like a layer of dew. B) had brilliancy of diamonds. Like a diamond
from his hand – Habakkuh. C) Rev says his feet like bronze. D) Heb – apostle
says that he was the shining glory of God.
2. His color was like a balsamic trees that would drip sap and looked like gold. The
resin resembles Jesus. Aromatic oils were used for medicine and cure wounds,
sores and other infirmities. This is a type of Christ. God became man.
3. The flavor was like new oil. The new oil used at that time to anoint, refresh, cure
wounds, shined as light. To eat like the holy supper – type of Christ for us so that
we can have presense and that we can have fresh oil if necessary. The same as
they smashed the olives, he is also for us.
4. the manna was a seed like parsley – in a mortar – then u can smoke and cook the
bread. This is what Isai described in ch. 53. Nu 17. One of the last items
mentioned in the ark of the covennt. An image of the priesthood – Aaron and his
blossom represents the symbol of Jesus praying for us.
Christ was the staff that blossomed and budded. His dad could not challenge him. He
was lift from the dead. Ac 2:24. Flowers represent the great fragrance of a resurrected
Christ. The almond repr the 1st fruit in spring. I Cor 15:20. The 1st who slept
The tree that takes this name is derived from a root that means to hurry. The rod of aaron
that blossomed – it was necessary that Jesus Christ was resurrected the 3rd day.
Last chapter of Exod – ment6ioned twice – the order the people would respect the taking
in and out of the tabernaqcle. Ex. 40:. The first part registered the order from God to
Moses. In the verses 17-23 we see Moses took for the the order of God.
The approval from God will fulfill that place with glory. The whole process was relaqted
to praise A& worship. The tabernacle not only given to put tog as the initiaon of all
things. At the beg we will start the journeys. That was init,k the initiation of the priests
aqnd his clothersd. The ark of the covenant, ark of the law mentioned the concept of this
worhip. The tabernacle not only given by God, but aso the comense – the place of
reunion was the place wehre God Himsel placed the pact,m the veal, table of showbread,
cande4llara, laws, the altar of God with incense burning. The altar of bronze with his
burnt offers. Aaron would work and wash before coming intgo the tabernacle.
Giving us the understand that was the plan of salvgation for man and was originated by
the celestial father and Himself for which he initiated. Send His beloved son from
heaven so that we can have the invitation to enter His place and the doors that are called
The Incense of God
This was a cup attached ti the tassle made of gold. Inside the cup of the incense was the
combo of sweet smell and charcoal. The day of atonement (once a year), the Hight Priest
would go to the high place and take the incense once per year.. The art of the pact and the
presence of/god would be there.
NOTE: To present the offerings to God, it was carefully. The childr55en of Israql, did
not follow the sacrifice. The destruction with the lightning of fire. To take and do the
sacreifices was an act of obedience.
The fire of the altar of the sacrifice could never be turned off – typified holiness. It was
possible that Nadab and Abihu had taken the incense (strange fire) had mixed with God
(didn’t follow instructions). Nadab and Abihu abused the office of the priesthood.
Lev. 10:1-2 speaks of the death of the sons of Aaron – Nadab and Abihu. Incense was
taken perhaps of practicalness and quick. Not the one they were suppose to bring. They
brought the wrong thing to the Lord. Lev. 16:12-13 explains the way we take the incense
for us to avoid death.
Exod. 40:34-48. Read the shekinah glory – the cloud. The glory of God. Cloud in the
day and night gave direction thru the desert. This cloud may have been the illumination
that gave light. Visible in day and could be seen at night. But this could not have been
possible because how can this cloud be taken from a certain place and be lifted in another
place. Cloud of fire was not a natural stage – it was phenomenal from the presence and
evidence of God. TGiven direction to the people of Israel – they could be walking in this
cloud by what God would say. Ex 40:33-48.
The cloud – symbolic and fire of God. Exod. 13:20-21. Num 12:5 - The Passover.
Transformed the camp. Manifestation frequently given by the glory of God. The cloud
that covered the tabernacle at every reunion. The propitiation – the holiest place. God
was over the holy place.
Lev 16:2. Perhaps the same fire that destroyed Nadab & Abihu. Deut 4:24. God is fire
that consumes. The next time the cloud was nentioned – King Solomon I Sam 8:10 was
about to build the temple. Ezek. 37 – sin had become much and God’s glory was taken
The NT mentions the cloud that contain His glory in the mount transfig. Ac 1:9 – Jesus
was taken to heaven in a cloud and lastly, the last registry will be that all eyes shall see
Him. Luke 21:27. It is nec4ssary that the people of Israel have the cloud to direct them
through the desert. This cloud would indicate when to stop, when to go. Today we hqve
the Holy Spirit that gives truth, how to speak, to do the perfect will of God and not to do
the things that are not of God. Jn 16:13.
When we ask for direction from God we can go to where He wants us to go establishing a
place to pray, to seek His direction and His purpose. This is the purpose in which you
find yourself today as a Christian.
Typology - the type of typos – greek. Meaning a mark, impression, design. Jn 20:25 –
the nail imprint.
The story of salvation. The elements – offerings, sacrifice, the fulfillment. Rom 5:14 –
to affirm yourserlf before the coming of Christ. Ac 7:43, Heb 9:23. Will give form.
Rom 6:17. Exam. I Tim 4:12. For all students – this is the representation of the work of
Symbolism. Don’t be dogmatic but understanding and careful. Don’t force interpretation
with no bibilical base. We will see God’s hand – see ourself approved in every
confirmation and application based on His ordinance and covenant. To use model of
Moses in the tabernacle and the celestial symbolic – wonderful things. This is to have
experience and biblical backup with purpose so that you can respect the one who is
listening to you.
There are other studies that people use to convenience and expose this, but it is not
biblical to use for argument by avoiding the truth siugnificance of the tabernacle. No
deviation. There is something we should consider in this study that the presence of Christ
is in the tabernafle and every offering, rituals, dress, furniture, number, colors, etc is a
connection that represents the extension of the throne of God and His redemption.
Thje words are more and the only way to have a position of God is when we study this
model and understand how to utilize the details of the service, animals and the form of
the altars and the bronze, every ritual was just a shadow of the redemption work of Jesus.
It is simple to view it as a human being and utilize the language we can all understand,
but we are people who complicate things and if we just show the expressoion of God, go
to the truth of God let our revelation to give understanding simpley. This principles are
found in the prophecy alreadty est in the bibgle. It is diff that someone could explain that
what God wants to reveal is just mqnifesteation. We make the diff. We have the
manifestion within us so that w4 can understand the plan of rede4mption. We need to
wait for Christ to come back.
