A Bible Journey, 75: What Was In The Tabernacle?
"Look that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the Mount"
After the LORD God (Who was and is Jesus Christ; see The Real Jesus: The Word Of The LORD God and A Bible Journey, 56: The Sacred Name) declared His Christian Law to the Israelites (see A Bible Journey, 72: The Perfect Law Of Liberty and A Bible Journey, 70: The Christian Ten Commandments) and after they accepted His offer of deliverance, the covenant (i.e. contract) was put into writing (see A Bible Journey, 74: The Blood Of The Sinai Covenant).
The LORD then gave the instructions for the Tabernacle and its facilities that were to serve as a prophecy of Christianity, not just to one nation, but when all is done, to all nations (see The Harvest Prophecies). Keep in mind that, at this point, the Levite priesthood did not yet exist (see When Were The Levites Set Apart?).
"25:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 25:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering. 25:3 And this is the offering which ye shall take of them; gold, and silver, and brass, 25:4 And blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair, 25:5 And rams' skins dyed red, and badgers' skins, and shittim wood, 25:6 Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet incense, 25:7 Onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the breastplate.
"25:10 And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof. 25:11 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round about. 25:12 And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four corners thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of it, and two rings in the other side of it. 25:13 And thou shalt make staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold. 25:14 And thou shalt put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them. 25:15 The staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall not be taken from it. 25:16 And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee.
A table was to be made for "the table shewbread" (see Bread of the Presence).
"25:23 Thou shalt also make a table of shittim wood: two cubits shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.
The King James Version often uses "candlestick" for the lampstand that held the oil lamps i.e. "thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof: and they shall light the lamps thereof, that they may give light over against it" (see The Menorah: Lighting The Way).
"25:31 And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of the same.
Fact Finder: Where were the tables of stone, upon which were written the Ten Commandments, kept before the Tabernacle was constructed? Who were the only two people who were allowed near the Ark at that time?
