I bought through the internet from
America a plastic model of the tabernacle, which I painted and built
with my wife. It took three days for us to get it ready. We photographed
the tabernacle on a sandpit, and in that way we got a background that
looks like the wilderness of the land of Israel.
God gave a command to
the nation of Israel to build a tabernacle (hebrew. Mishkan, Ohel
God spoke to Moses:
And I will meet you
there, and will speak with you, above the mercyseat, from between the
two cherubs which are on the ark of testimony, all which I shall command
you concerning the sons of Israel, And I
will meet you there, and will speak with you, above the mercyseat, from

shall command you concerning the sons of Israel, Ex 25:22

was called also with following names; the tabernacle of the
congregation, the tabernacle of testimony, the tabernacle of witness and
the tent of the testimony, because the law of the Lord was put to the
ark of covenant.
But thou shalt
appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of testimony, and over all the
vessels thereof, and over all things that belong to it: they shall bear
the tabernacle, and all the vessels thereof; and they shall minister
unto it, and shall encamp round about the tabernacle,
And it came to pass,
that on the morrow Moses went into the tabernacle of witness; and,
behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded, and brought
forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and yielded almonds,

The Nation of Israel wandered in the
wilderness following by day a pillar of cloud and by night a pillar
of fire. During the whole time of wandering they carried the tabernacle
with them. The task of the Levites was to carry the tabernacle and all
And the LORD went
before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by
night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:
He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire
by night, from before the people.
Exodus 13:21, 22
It was remarkable that those divine
appearances, which were given to Moses on the mountain, ended
immediately when the tabernacle was erected, even though there were yet
given many orders concerning this tabernacle. Leviticus also starts
like this: " and the LORD called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of
the tabernacle of the congregation, saying :
" Lev 1:1. God informed His will through Moses and through all prophets
of Israel, so that through their agency the nation could get information
about God, because nobody had been able to meet God, nor associate with
Him anywhere else other than in the tabernacle. That is the reason why
this tent was called " the tabernacle of the congregation " in other
words tent of "association". Here people associated with God; It was a
bond between God and His nation. If someone from Israel wanted to
approach God, he went to the tabernacle; there was no other way. And if
someone now wants to approach God, he has to go to Yeshua, who is
patterned after the given tabernacle.

When we speak generally about the
tabernacle we want yet to finally touch this point, that the Israelites
saw the cloud of the Lord all the time, while they wandered in the
wilderness. This is spoken of in Exodus in the last chapter of the
book, and this chapter ends with these words: "For the cloud of the LORD
was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the
sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys. " EX
40:38. The camp of the Israelites was very large, because at least two and a half million
Israelites' tents were there. Balaam had to rise to seven different
hills of the mountain that he could watch the whole camp with its all
tents. How could the Israelite therefore find the tabernacle,
especially, if his residence was in the rear of camp? The pillar of
cloud was seen everywhere around the whole camp; and it could be seen in
the daytime and at night. Not even one of the Israelites needed to be
uncertain about where the tabernacle of the Lord was, where he could get
connection with God. Oh, what a miraculous and comforting point this was
to the child of Israel!

The Lord appeared in a pillar of cloud to the nation of Israel.
Yet thou in thy manifold mercies forsookest them not
in the wilderness: the pillar of the cloud departed not from them by
day, to lead them in the way; neither the pillar of fire by night, to
shew them light, and the way wherein they should go. Thou gavest also
thy good spirit to instruct them, and withheldest not thy manna from
their mouth, and gavest them water for their thirst.
Neh 9:19, 20.
11But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a
greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to
say, not of this building; 12Neither by the blood of goats and calves,
but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having
obtained eternal redemption for us. 13For if the blood of bulls and of
goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to
the purifying of the flesh: 14How much more shall the blood of Christ,
who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God,
purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15And for
this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of
death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the
first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of
eternal inheritance. 16For where a testament is, there must also of
necessity be the death of the testator. 17For a testament is of force
after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the
testator liveth. 18Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated
without blood. 19For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the
people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats,
with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book,
and all the people, 20Saying, This is the blood of the testament which
God hath enjoined unto you. 21Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the
tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry. 22And almost all things
are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no
remission. 23It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in
the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things
themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24For Christ is not
entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of
the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God
for us: 25Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest
entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; 26For then
must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now
once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the
sacrifice of himself.
