PHASE 2 reveals how God has foreshadowed in the language of the Old Testament the pattern for building
and presenting His "
espoused"("chaste virgin")  Bride to the Lord Jesus Christ. We need to
watch and pray"lest byany meansas the serpent beguiled​ Eve (Gen.3:1-7) through his subtilty, so your minds(Rom.12:1-2, 2Cor.10:4)
should be corrupted from the simplicity (of the pattern) that is in Christ" (2Cor.11:1-4). God has recorded in Genesis to Revelation ONE PLAN and ONE PURPOSE that has been "hid since the world began" (Eph.3:1-12).  This chart below illustrates how each book from Genesis to Revelation tells how God's redemptive plan / purpose has unfolded book by book.  When coming into the New Testament (Covenant) Paul the apostle and wise master builder (1Cor.3:10) says, "Now all these things (The Law / Tabernacle / High Priest / Priesthood / Offerings / Psalm's / the Prophets) happened unto them (the children of Israel) as ensamples or types: and they are written for our admonition" (i.e. the Churches TODAY(1Cor.10:11).

This study is our "launching-pad" (so-to-speak). It is our foundation and framework for all of the other Phases (3-12). The children of Israel leaving Egypt and possessing the Land, is a picture (i.e. "ensample" or type
(1Cor.10:11) of what God has done, what He is presently doing, and where He is yet to take the Church, the Bride of Christ / Eve (Gen.12:1; 15:13-21, Exod.12:1-15 / 1 Cor.5:7-8) Deut.12:1-12, 1 Chron.17:1-15; 22:1-19, 2 Chron.5:1-14 / Eph.2:20-22, 1 Cor.10:1-11). This chart gives a brief summary.

The apostle Paul wrote, "Whatsoever things that were written aforetime (the Old Testament) were written for our learning, (the Church TODAY) that we through patience and comfort of the (Old Testament) scriptures might have hope" (Rom.15:4, Gal.1:11-12, 2 Tim.3:16). This is the first of three patterns that parallel each other confirming that God is working according to a deliberate plan and purpose. (The other two patterns are found in, PHASE 4, (The Tabernacle of Moses) and PHASES 8911 (The Feasts of Israel).
