The Tabernacle reveals YESHUA and YESHUA reveals the Tabernacle
THE TABERNACLE was a portable temple – a “tent of meeting” – within a movable courtyard. It was constructed after the pattern that YAHWEH revealed to Moses on Mount Sinai, and was assembled in the desert as Moses led the Israelites through the wilderness from Egypt to the Promised Land. Today we are that portable temple in whom the Spirit of GOD dwells and manifests HIMSELF. Tabernacle is a blueprint given by GOD to Moses on how to enter into HIS Presence. The Brazen Altar reveals YESHUA as the Substitute, the ultimate Sacrifice of GOD who laid down HIS Life for us, in the Brazen Laver, HE is our Cleanser and Regenerator, in the Table of Shewbread, HE is The Bread of Life, The Word of Truth, in the Menorah, HE is the Light of the world, in the Altar of Incense, YESHUA is our Intercessor, and in the Mercy Seat, YESHUA our Propitiation.

It was visited only once each year by the High Priest, on the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for the sins of the people.
This was the most solemn ceremony of the Hebrew worship.
In the beginning, the Israelites carried the Tabernacle with them wherever they went. 36 “In all the travels of the Israelites, whenever the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle, they would set out; 37 but if the cloud did not lift, they did not set out – until the day it lifted. 38 So the cloud of The LORD was over the Tabernacle by day, and fire was in the cloud by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel during all their travels.” Exodus 40: 36-38
The Ark was a very important part of Israel’s identity. It was a symbol that GOD was among them, HIS People and that HIS Covenant blessing was resting among them. It was the most sacred and glorious Instrument of the sanctuary, constructed of shittim (acacia) wood 21/2 cubits long and 11/2 cubits high overlaid with gold and embellished with a crown of gold extending around the chest upon the top edge. 4 rings of pure gold were set in the 4 corners, 2 on one side and 2 on the other, through which were passed wooden staves overlaid with gold used in carrying the sacred chest.
The Ark represents :-
The Throne of GOD on earth
The Presence of GOD in Christ, by The Spirit in the midst of HIS Redeemed People
The Glory of GOD revealed in Divine order and Worship
The Fullness of The Godhead Bodily revealed in The LORD JESUS CHRIST (Colossians 1:9; 2:9)
All that The Ark was to Israel in the Old Testament, ADONAI YESHUA is to HIS Church, Spiritual Israel in the New Testament.
Thus HIS Dwelling was The Tabernacle around which the Israelites camped. During the time of Joshua however, only the Ark of The Covenant remained. We are now HIS Temple – Christ in us, the Hope of Glory. Colossians 1:27
* Also referred to as The Ark of GOD / , Ark of The Testimony (Exodus 25:22) Elohim (1Samuel 3:3) and The Ark of Yah’s Strength (The Ark of YOUR Might – NIV) (2 Chronicles 6:41)

THE SHOFAR AND RAMS HORN has always held a prominent role in the history of GOD’S people in the Bible. From Biblical times, the shofar has been depicted as a tool of warfare, a tool of worship, a tool for gathering the people. Today, we are HIS Shofar to proclaim HIS Truth.
So when was the shofar first mentioned ?
In Genesis 22, in his ultimate worship unto THE LORD, Abraham in total obedience and complete sacrifice, , surrendered Isaac, his one and only son, THE PROMISE given him by GOD at Mount Moriah (Mount Zion) but GOD instead provided sacrifice with The Ram as sacrifice in place of Isaac, foreshadowing what was to come, The Sacrifice of GOD’S One and Only SON, ADONAI YESHUA HAMASHIACH as the Ransom for The Redemption of Man. In the same manner, GOD expects for us to give our all to HIM. All that we have comes from HIM, our Source, our Provider of all Good things.
37 “Whoever loves father or mother more than ME is not worthy of ME. And whoever loves son or daughter more than ME is not worthy of ME; 38 and anyone who does not take his staff * and come and follow ME is not worthy of ME. 39 Whoever finds his soul will lose it, and whoever loses his soul for MY Sake will find it. Matthew 10: 37-39 (Aramaic English New Testament version)
* Take up your staff and follow means to exercise your personal authority.
” …and Elohim is faithful who will not permit you to be tried beyond your ability, but will make an issue to your trial, that you may be able to sustain it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13 (Aramaic English New Testament version)
The relevance of the shofar has never been more pronounced now than ever before – it is used to usher in The Day of The LORD (Joel 2:1) and during the time of the ‘Rapture’ and the Resurrection of the dead as in 1 Thessalonians 4:16, “for THE LORD HIMSELF will come down from Heaven with a loud command, with the voice of the Archangel and with the trumpet call of GOD,and the dead in Christ will rise first”. The shofar will again be sounded in these end days as seen in Revelation 8-9 when GOD judges the earth.
TAMBOURINES are beautiful worship instruments used for spiritual warfare. When we war with the tambourines, we are trampling down the enemy.
Anointing with beautifully fragranced Essential oils can be spiritually enhancing and used as an act of consecration and dedication, setting apart for a special purpose in GOD'S Kingdom for Prayer, Healing and Worship. They also carry a prophetic significance. Myrrh for example stands for purification, dying to self and preparation for the KING, Hyssop too, for cleansing, purification, Pomegranate, abundance, fruitfulness, Favour of The LORD, blessings, Spikenard reflects intimacy, extravagant worship, Rose of Sharon signifies The Beloved, beauty.
YESHUA is The MENORAH, The Light of The World and so are we the Menorah, the church. (Revelation 1:12,20). It also represents The Ministry of The Holy Spirit. We are called to be HIS Salt and Light in this world and a city on a hill cannot be hidden (Matthew 5: 14). HE is The Ark and we carry HIS Presence. In these last of the days we need to arise and shine (Isaiah 60:1-3), HIS Shekinah is within us and upon us.
A Revelation of the Relevance of these items of worship bring us to our Purpose and direct us in the way we live our lives – a Worship unto HIM…and one of the Highest form of Worship is in Giving.
