Phase 7 /The Tabernacle of David The Tabernacle of David study is significant because we see it's New Testament reality and it's restoration in the church today. In the Tabernacle of David, King David set the first pattern for worship into action and expanded how God's presence was to be handled. Also in this period of expanded worship David received the pattern to build Solomon's Temple which would house the Ark's final resting place. The Old Testament prophets help us understand the significance of David's Tabernacle. (Acts 3:24, Isa. 16:5, Amos 9:11-12)
We see James, in Acts 15:15-17, reaching back to the Old Testament prophets to identify the time and place in God's redemptive plan that they were living in. James was saying that they were living the reality of David's Tabernacle! As you see in the chart below, this brings us very near the final phase of God's redemptive plan, Solomon's Temple.
Act 15:15-17 "And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written, After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who does all these things. "
