VI. The Holy Place
           
            The Tabernacle (i.e. the Sanctuary) was divided with a "Vail" into two rooms. The Holy Place which had
            the Golden Candlestick (Lamp stand), the Table of Shewbread overlaid with Gold, the Golden Altar of
            Incense and The Most Holy Place which had the Ark of the Covenant.

            
A. The Tabernacle building (Sanctuary)
   
​                   The first covenant (the Old Covenant / Testament) had also ordinances of divine service, and a
                worldly sanctuary. For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and
                   the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary. (Heb.9:1-2)

                  1. The Sanctuary was made of shittim boards standing up
                      
                       Ten "cubits shall be the length of a board, and a cubit and a half shall be the breadth of one
                       board." 
(Exod. 26:15-17) Twenty boards for the South wall, six boards for the West wall and
                       twenty boards for the North wall. This gives us the length, width and height of the Tabernacle.
                       (10 cubits x 10 cubits x 30 cubits.)





















                  2. This sanctuary was then covered by curtains         
                      
                       These curtains confirms the length, width and height of the Tabernacle and the dividing line
                       between the Holy Place and the Most Holy.

                     
  a. First covering was the fine linen curtains
                             
                            Make "the tabernacle with ten curtains of  fine twined linen, and blue, and purple
                            and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning work shalt thou make them. The length of one
                            curtain shall be eight and twenty cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: and
                            everyone of the curtains shall have one measure." (Exod.26:1-14)

























                          b. The second covering was made of goats hair
                          
​                             Make "curtains of goats' hair to be a covering upon the tabernacle: eleven curtains shalt
​                             thou make. The length of one curtain shall be thirty cubits, and the breadth of one curtain

                             four cubits: and the eleven curtains shall be all of one measure." (Exod.26:7-9) This time
                         God told Moses, "couple five curtains by themselves
, and six curtains by themselves,
                             and shalt double the sixth curtain in the forefront of the tabernacle."
(Exod.26:9-10)

                             Note: What this does it places the "taches" in the same place for the fine linen and
                             goats hair curtains, which happens to be twenty cubits from the door of the Holy Place        
                             (The Sanctuary)

























                             This is why we knowthe Holy Place is20 x 10 x 10 = 2,000 Cubits

        B. The significance of the Holy place in the Tabernacle floor plan
                 
                  Note this verse. "The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet
                  made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: Which was a figure for the time then
                  present, in which  were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the
                  service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience."
(Heb 9:8-9) This was the Holy Spirit that inspire 
                  
(2Tim.3:16) the writer of Hebrews to say "The Holy Ghost" (Heb.9:8) Himself was "signifying" with
                  the Tabernacle. Therefore if we want to be lead by the Spirit of God,
(John.16:12-15, 1Cor.2:1-14) we
                  will say the same thing.
(1Cor.1:10)


                  
1. This pattern is seen in the life of the apostles
                       
                       They were
born(John.20:19-23)
[67]of the Spirit, (The Brazen Altar / Phase 4, Page.3)Water       
                       Baptized
[68]  (The Brazen Laver / Phase 4, Page 4) and waited at Jerusalem (Mt. Sinai / Phase 2,
                      
Page.1, IV-V) until they were baptized with the Holy Spirit. (pictured by going through the door to    
                       the anointing Review: 
Page. 6






















                      After going through the "door" to the Holy Place (i.e. entering into the Baptism of the Holy
                       Spirit) it revealed a greater understanding (or another "glory"
2Cor.3:1-18) into what is required
                       for God to dwell amongst us.
(Exod.25:8, 2Cor.6:16) This can be seen in what Jesus told the
                       apostles. He said, "I have yet many things to say
(Luke.1:3-4,  Acts.1:1, 1Cor.2:1-14) unto you, but
                       (you) cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, (i.e. The day of
                       Pentecost.
Acts.2:1-17) He will guide you into all truth: (i.e. take you through the door of the
                   Holy
Place to see (understand
Eph.1:18) the truths concerning the Candlestick, Table of
                       Shewbread and Golden Altar of Incense) for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he
                       shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come."
(John.16:12-13) 
                         
Note:  Apollos needed this update. (Acts.18:24-28)
 

               2. This pattern is seen in the restoration of the Church

                       
                       The Reformation1517 AD
(the Brazen Altar Phase 4, Page 3) saw the truths of atonement
                       (justification by faith) and then Anabaptists (approx. 1522 - 1800 AD) realized the truths of the
                       
(the Brazen Laver Phase 4, Page 4) After this The Spirit of God lead the Church into the Baptism
                       of the Holy Spirit.
(The oil / anointing oil in the Candlestick Phase 4,  Page 6 )
                       
(Review: Phase.2, Page.3, XII-XIII) 




















                  The purpose was that the previous moves of God (1517 & 1800 AD) would embrace this new
                  visitation of God, but some stayed behind causing yet another division in the "good seed" (30%)
                  Jesus said this would happen.
(Luke.12:51, John.7:43; 9:16; 10:19) Note: 2Cor.2:14-16)


 
                  3. The pattern is to be fulfilled in our Christian life
                     
                       Then Peter said unto them, Repent,
(Brazen Altar Phase 4, Page 3) and be baptized (Brazen Laver
                       
Phase 4, Page 4) every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye    
                       shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost."
(Acts 2:38) (Pictured by going through the door to the
                       anointing
Review: Phase 4, Page.6)
                 
























                       4. As seen in God's Redemptive Week        
                            
                            Since the time that "sin entered into the world" through the fall of Adam,
(Rom.5:12) God has
                            been working according to a Redemptive plan to "dwell" amongst us
(Rev.21:3)once again
                       as He did in the garden of Eden.
(Gen.2:8-19; 3:8 Note: Rev.2:7; 22:2, 14)

                              
This plan follows  exactly the same floor plan as the Tabernacle of Moses, because this
                            is His "divine nature."
(2Peter.1:4) It is who He is. This is how He thinks. (Review: Phase 3, IV. B.
                            2 / 
Phase 2, Page.1, IV.A)  He cannot deny Himself! (2Tim.2:13) The "apostles doctrine"
                            
(Acts.2:42) says that there has been "given unto us (those that obtained like precious faith
                            with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ) exceeding great and
                            precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature."
(2Peter 1:1-4)
