And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.
The Tabernacle has been called “The Gospel of the Eye.” Everywhere we look, we see Jesus. There is only one entrance into the Tabernacle; the first object one sees is the brazen altar of sacrifice; the seven pieces of furniture form a cross; the burning coals taken off the brazen altar of sacrifice kindle the incense upon the golden altar of prayer. These are just a few of the dazzling details. The whole splendid structure sparkles with the glory of Calvary!
Day after day, year after year, the Lord must have been saying to Himself: “I can hardly wait till Christ comes and Israel sees the significance of all this!”
