The Tabernacle – Our Temple Synopsis
By Doug Vermeulen

If we search the scriptures we find that there have been 5 meeting places of God with man.
*[1] The stone altar
*[2] The tabernacle of Moses
also known as the Sanctuary, Tent of testimony, or Witness, House of God, Tent of the congregation, Temple.
*[3] The Temple of Solomon
*[4] The Lord Jesus Christ Himself
*[5] Jesus Christ in you
Know You Not That You Are The Temple Of The Living God?
The tabernacle of Moses constitutes in actual and symbolic form the Temple of the Living God, and so below is a listing of how the Tabernacle was made up. Also very brief, not all, symbolism is given, as these are extensively covered in the book.

Having seen Jesus we can now partake of what He has done for us.
The Courtyard

fine flour = the material (money, time, service, etc.
The Altar Of Incense - A Voluntary Offering

The incense had to be sweet, pure, holy, perpetual, fragrant.
The Ark Of The Covenant
The Symbology for the Ark of the Covenant and all the various parts of the Tabernacle are found in Book 8
Contained the law, pot of manna, the rod that budded, and over and above these items; the mercy seat; and above these two cherubim’s facing each other.
In the most holy place, the holy of holies
Position: for God's presence to dwell on.
The place where atonement for the whole nation was made.
Psalm 46***Be still and know that I am God
The Christian reaching the presence of God - enabled by the Holy Spirit - words are and become inadequate.
The place where Psalm 91 becomes true.
The book gives a complete description, with illustrations, of the wonderful previewing of the plan God had for us in Christ Jesus.
The symbolic meanings of furniture and fittings in the Tabernacle Temple are looked at in considerable detail. Accurate graphic pictures are also provided.
Book 8 covers the detail on how the Tabernacle and the Temple are equivalent with each other, and introduces the idea that we ourselves reflect the qualities found in the Tabernacle &Temple in symbolic form. We can thus, once we understand how everything fits together, begin to live these qualities.
