INTRODUCTION

I HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT DOING A SERIES ON THE TABERNACLE AND ITS FURNITURE
BECAUSE, I BELIEVE THAT YOU CANNOT REALY APPRECIATE WHO JESUS IS UNTIL YOU UNDERSTAND THE TABERNACLE
YOU WILL KNOW BIBLE STORIES
YOU KNOW THAT JESUS WENT TO THE CROSS AND DIED FOR YOUR SINS
BUT, YOU WON’T KNOW THE IMPACT OF HIS BLOOD WAS A BUSINESS TRANSACTION THAT BOUGHT YOU OFF OF THE SLAVE TABLE OF SIN AND RELEASED YOU SO YOU WILL USE TERMS SUCH AS REDEEM BUT YOU DON’T REALLY THINK ABOUT IT
REDEEM,
IT IS ONLY AS YOU GO INTO THE TABERNACLE AND YOU SEE THE BLOOD ON THE ALTAR, THE BRAZEN ALTAR, THE PRICE THAT WAS PAID FOR YOUR REDEMPTION AND THEN YOU BEGIN TO CONSIDER THAT WHEN JESUS ASCENDED THAT HE WENT UP IN THE CLOUD THROUGH THE VEIL
INTO THE HOLY OF HOLIES BY WHICH THIS IS JUST A PATTERN
THE TABERNACLE WAS ERECTED AROUND 1450 BC
IT IS ERECTED IN THE WILDERNESS EXACTLY ONE YEAR AFTER THE PASSOVER
SO, A YEAR AGO TO THE DATE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WERE SLAVES AND GOD HAS SENT MOSES DOWN INTO EGYPT TOP TELL PHARAOH, LET MY PEOPLE GO
HE SAYS, LET THEM GO THAT THEY WOULD WORSHIP ME
THE TABERNACLE WAS DESIGNED EXCTLY WHAT GOD MEANT BY WORSHIP
GOD REALLY DIDN’T MEAN, TAKE THEM OUT IN THE DESERT MOSES AND START DANCING, CLAPPING, AND SHOUTING
HE REALLY DIDN’T MEAN, RAISE YOUR HANDS AND SING HOSANNA
WORSHIP FOR HIM WAS COMPREHENSIVE BECAUSE THE WORD WORSHIP MEANS WORTH-SHIP
IT IS THE COMBINATION OF TWO LATIN WORDS THAT MEAN WORTH-SHIP, SHOW ME WHAT I AM WORTH
WORSHIP IN GOD’S MIND ISN’T DOING YOUR THING THE WAY THAT YOU WANT TO DO IT
GOD IS SPECIFIC ABOUT HOW HE WANTS TO BE WORSHIPED AND WITH GREAT DETAIL, DOWN TO THE CUBIT INCH WHAT HE WANTS TO BE DONE, HOW IT IS TO BE BUILT, AND WHAT HE WANTS IT TO ESTABLISH, AND WHAT HE WANTS IT TO DO
YOU MUST UNDERSTAND IN THE BOOK OF , ALL GOD EVER WANTED WAS TO BE WITH YOU
FROM GENESIS, THE BOOK OF CREATION, ALL GOD EVER WANTED WAS TO BE WITH YOU
HE CREATED THE GARDEN OF EDEN, SO YOU WOULD HAVE A PLACE TO BE WITH HIM
ALL THAT HE EVER WANTED WAS TO DWELL WITH YOU
HE CREATED YOU IN HIS IMAGE AND LIKENESS THAT HE MIGHT HAVE RELATIONSHIP NOT RELIGION
MOST PEOPLE HAVE RELIGION BUT THEY DON’T HAVE RELATIONSHIP
GOD WANTS YOU TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM
WHEN HE CAME DOWN INTO THE GARDEN AND LOOKED FOR MAN, MAN WAS NOT IN THE PLACE
GOD SAID, WHERE ARE YOU......AND WE HAD ALREADY RUN OFF WITH SATAN INTO SIN
NOW THERE WERE VISITATIONS WHERE GOD WOULD MEET WITH CERTAIN PEOPLE, WITH PROPHETS ON DIFFERENT OCCASIONS
BUT THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT WE SEE A GREAT PLACE TO MEET WITH GOD SINCE EDEN TO THE TABERNACLE
WHERE GOD HAD SET UP A PLACE FOR US TO MEET
LITERALLY THE PLACE IS A PLACE OF MEETING

BODY

LET’S READ
Exodus 25:8 KJV 1900
And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.
THE WHIOLE REASON THAT GOD WANTS THEM TO BUILD THE TABERNACLE IS TO HAVE A MEETING PLACE
SINCE WE CANNOT COME UP, I WILL COME DOWN AND DWELL AMONGST YOU
SINCE YOUR CAR BROKE DOWN, I WILL COME OVER AND PICK YOU UP
SINCE YOU CANNOT COME UP INTO THE HEAVENLIES, WE WILL BUILD A PATTERN OF WHAT I HAVE FOR YOU UP THERE AND I WANT TO COME DOWN TO BE WITH YOU
IF WE STOP COMING TO CHURCH AS A SOCIAL CLUB AND COME TO LEARN THE GUIDELINES OF OUR FAITH OF WHO WE ARE
WE WON’T BE TOSSED HERE AND THERE WITH EVERY STRANGE DOCTRINE
SOME CHRISTIANS ARE TALKING NOW, I PRAY TO THE UNIVERSE
WHY WOULD YOU PRAY TO THE CREATION WHEN YOU CAN PRAY TO THE CREATOR
ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS THAT YOU LEARN ABOUT THE UNBELIEVERS IN THE BOOK OF ROMANS IS THAT THEY DIDN’T WORSHIP GOD AS GOD BUT WORSHIPED THE CREATION
AND PEOPLE ARE PRAYING TO THE UNIVERSE
GUESS WHO MADE THE UNIVERSE
Psalm 91:1 KJV 1900
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
HE THAT DWELLETH (REPEAT 5 X’S)
SHALL ABIDE UNDER THE SHADOW
WE ARE DELING WITH TWO DIFFERENT THINGS-BUILD ME A SANCTUARY THAT I MAY DWELL AMONG THEM
BUT IN HE IS TALKING ABOUT US
IT IS NOT ENOUGH FOR GOD TO DWELL IF YOU DON’T DWELL
IT MADE ME THINK OF , ABIDE IN ME.............
THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT YOU RECEIVE BY DWELLING THAT YOU DON’T GET BY VISITING
YOU HAVE TO GET MORE THAN JUST VISITING GOD WHEN YOU ARE IN TROUBLE
BECAUSE THE REAL BENEFITS COME FROM DWELLING
IN GOOD AND BAD TIMES, WHEN I’M STRONG AND WEAK, WHEN I AM RIGHT OR WRONG, IN ORDINARY DAYS AND SPECTACULAR DAYS, HEALTHY DAYS AND SICK DAYS....I WILL DWELL
Psalm 91:9 KJV 1900
Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, Even the most High, thy habitation;
BECAUSE YOU HAVE MADE THE LORD YOUR HABITATION AND NOT VISITATION
1,000 SHALL FALL AT THY SIDE AND 10,000 AT THY RIGHT HAND BUT IT SHALL NOT COME NEAR YOU
THIS IS NOT A PROMISE FOR VISITORS
THAT IS A PROMISE FOR DWELLERS
CONSISTENT, ALL THE TIME DWELLERS IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD
GOD DOESN’T WANT A ONE NIGHT STAND WITH YOU
STOP SAYING WELL I WENT TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY
GOD DOES NOT DO ONE NIGHT STANDS
HE WANTS MONDAY-SUNDAY
HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED THESE PEOPLE THAT TRY GOD AND THEY TRY HIM FOR A WEEKEND
TRIED HIM FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS AND SAY, IT DOESN’T WORK FOR ME
THAT IS HOW HE DESIGNED IT, THERE IS A TRAP FOR IMPOSTERS
YOU HAVE TO DWELL WITH HIM
HE SAYS, I DON’T WANT TO SEE YOU WHEN I GET IT DONE
WILL YOU PRAISE ME BROKE, SICK, DIVORCED, SINGLE, LONELY, CRISES
HE THAT DWELLETH IN THE SECRET PLACE
TELL YOUR NEIGHBOR THERE IS A SECRET PLACE
THE BIBLE SAYS, THE SECRET OF THE LORD IS WITH THEM THAT FEAR HIM AND HE WILL SHOW THEM HIS COVENANT
THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT GOD WON’T SHOW YOU UNTIL YOU DWELL
THE WORD FEAR IS RESPECT AND HONOR
HE SAYS, IF YOU WILL HONOR ME, THEN I WILL WHISPER IN YOUR EAR
I WILL TELL YOU MY SECRETS
I’LL TELL YOU WHY YOUR DADDY WAS GONE ALL OF THE TIME, WHY YOU GREW UP WITH YOUR GRANDMA, WHY YOU HAD TO MOVE TO DIFFERENT PLACES, WHY YOU HAD TO GO THROUGH A SETBACK
THE SECRET OF THE LORD IS WITH THEM THAT FEAR HIM
TELL SOMEONE, I AM GOING TO DWELL
I MAY BE IN A BAD SEASON, BUT I AM GOING TO DWELL, GOING THROUGH A TOUGH TIM BUT GOING TO DWELL
I AM NOT GOING TO VISIT GOD, I AM GOING TO DWELL
AND IF HE WANTS TO DWELL WITH ME, I WANT TO DWELL WITH HIM
EXCEPT YE ABIDE IN THE VINE
IF YE ABIDE IN ME AND MY WORD ABODE IN YOU, YOU WILL ASK WHAT YE WILL AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU
THERE ARE DEGREES OF DWELLING
THE TABERNACLE IS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF ISRAEL
ISRAEL IS CAMPED ALL AROUND IT
EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK, THEY ARE ALL GATHERED AROUND
WHERE IS THE TABERNACLE
IT IS IN THE MIDST OF THEM, GOD IS DWELLING AMONGST HIS PEOPLE
BEFORE THE TABERNACLE WAS EVEN BUILT, THEY WERE DWELLING UNDERNEATH THE CLOUD
THEY DID NOT MOVE UNTIL THE CLOUD MOVED
HE WAS A CLOUD DURING THE DAY, SHIELDING THEM FROM THE INTENSE HEAT
THEN, HE TURNED INTO A PILLAR OF FIRE BY NIGHT BECAUSE IT IS COLD
LOOK HOW GOD REGULATED YOUR WILDERNESS
YES, YOU WENT THROUGH THE WILDERNESS, BUT HE DID NOT LET IT GET TOO MUCH FOR YOU
GOD IS DWELLING AMONG THEM IN THE CLOUD AND PILLAR, BUT NOW HE COMES CLOSER
THROUGH THE TABERNACLE, HE COMES CLOSER
THEY GO FROM THEIR BLACK GOATSKIN DWELLINGS TO ENTER INTO THE OUTER COURT-THE FRONT YARD
THERE ARE PEOPLE IN HERE RIGHT NOW THAT ARE IN THE YARD
IT IS OK FOR SOME TO BE IN THE YARD
IT IS IN THE OUTER COURT WHICH YOU SEE THE BRAZEN LAVER AND THE BRAZEN ALTAR
YOU SEE IT IN THE OUTER COURT
THIS IS WHERE WE TAKE CARE OF OUR SIN BUSINESS
THE ANIMALS ARE KILLED FOR SACRIFICE IN THE OUTER COURT
THE ANIMALS AND MAN ARE HERE PAYING THE BILLS
THE BILLS OF SIN, THE BILLS OF INIQUITY, HUMANITY
THEY ARE PAID THROUGH INNOCENT ANIMALS WHO GAVE THEIR LIFE INSTEAD OF
REDEMPTION IS REALLY ABOUT SUBSTITUTION
ADAM, THEY DAY THAT YOU EAT OF THIS TREE, YOU SHALL SURELY DIE
NOW WHEN GOD COMES DOWN TO THE GARDEN, HE EITHER HAS TO KILL ADAM
OR FIND A SUBSTITUTE
BECAUSE, IF HE HASN’T KILLED ADAM THEN HE HAS LIED
GOD CANNOT LIE, SO HE GOES AND FINDS AN ANIMAL AND USES IT AS A SUBSTITUTE
SO, THE ANIMAL DIES IN ADAM’S PLACE SO THAT ADAM CAN LIVE IN THE PLACE OF THE ANIMAL
THIS IS A PICTURE OF CALVARY
CHRIST DIED FOR YOU, SO THAT YOU COULD LIVE FOR HIM
IT WAS YOUR SINS THAT NAILED HIM TO A TREE
HE DID NOT DIE AS JESUS CHRIST
HE DIED AS MICHAEL GUTKNECHT
HE DIED IN MY PLACE, SO I COULD LIVE IN HIS
IN HIM I LIVE AND MOVE AND HAVE MY BEING
I SO MUCH LIVE IN HIS PLACE THAT HE SAID, LISTEN, WHEN YOU GO TO MY FATHER DON’T USE YOUR NAME
HE CAN’T SEE YOU, I COVERED YOU
SO, WHATSOEVER YOU ASK THE FATHER IN MY NAME IT SHALL BE DONE
BECAUSE WHEN HE SAW YOUR SINS ON THE CROSS, I WAS WOUNDED, BRUISED, AND AFFLICTED, BECAUSE I WAS YOU
YOU ARE FREE, HEALED, AND WHOLE BECAUSE YOU ARE ME
SO, WALK LIKE ME, TALK LIKE ME, THINK LIKE ME, LIVE LIKE ME
WE TRADED PLACES
YOU COME TO DO BUSINESS ON THE ALTAR
YOU COME TO CAST YOUR SINS UPON HIM AND ASK HIM TO PLACE HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS ON YOU
NOW , WE ARE GOING INTO THE TENT
WE ARE MOVING IN WITH GOD, DWELLING INSIDE THE TENT
THE CLOSER THAT YOU GET TO GOD, THE SMALLER THE CROWD BECOMES
EVERYONE CAN GATHER AROUND THE OUTSIDE
A FEW PEOPLE CAN COME INTO THE OUTER COURT
BUT, WHEN YOU GET READY TO GO IN, YOU HAVE TO BE A PRIEST TO MOVE IN
THE CLOSER YOU GET TO GOD, THE SMALLER THE CROWD BECOMES
ENTER INTO HIS GATES WITH THANKSGIVING AND HIS COURT WITH PRAISE
BE THANKFUL UNTO TO HIM AND BLESS HIS NAME
WHEN WE PRAISE HIM, WE GET INTO THE OUTER COURT
ANYBODY CAN PRAISE, LET EVERYTHING THAT HATH BREATH, PRAISE YE THE LORD
YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE RIGHT, HOLY, SAVED, YOU ARE COMMANDED TO PRAISE THE LORD
EVERYTHING THAT HATH BREATH, EVEN IF YOU SERVE OTHER GODS, YOU ARE COMMANDED TO PRAISE THE LORD
THEN, WHY DID JESUS SAY THAT GOD IS A SPIRIT AND THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH-AND THE FATHER SEEKETH SUCH
EVERYBODY CAN PRAISE BUT EVERYBODY CANNOT WORSHIP
THE REGULATIONS FOR A WORSHIPER GOES HIGHER
THE CLOSER THAT YOU GET TO GOD THE MORE INTIMATE THE EXPRESSION BECOMES
PRAISE IS THANK YOU LORD FOR MY CAR, HOUSE, SHOES, WATCH, CHILDREN, THIS DAY
THANKING GOD FOR WHAT HE DID
WORSHIP IS WORSHIPPING HIM FOR WHO HE IS
IT IS NOT WHETHER THE SONG IS FAST OR SLOW
PRAISE IS ABOUT DOING, WHILE WORSHIP IS ABOUT BEING
PEOPLE WHO WORSHIP GOD FOR WHO HE IS SAY, I WORSHIP YOU EVEN THOUGH I DON’T HAVE A CAR, DON’T HAVE A JOB, MY BODY GETS SICK
GOD HAS YOU COVERED, THAT MEANS THAT YOU ARE GOING UNDER THE TENT
IT IS GOING TO BE MORE INTIMATE
YOU HAVE TO BE A PRIEST TO GO UNDER
YOU CAN’T EAT IN THERE IF YOU ARE NOT A PRIEST
THAT’S OK BECAUSE YOU ARE A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD AN HOLY NATION
SO, LET’S GO IN
WHEN WE GO IN, WE HAVE LEFT THE DAYLIGHT
AND WE ARE GOING INTO REVELATORY LIGHT
GOING IN GIVES YOU THREE THINGS, BEING COVERED
IT GIVES YOU POWER
IT GIVES YOU PROTECTION
IT GIVES YOU PROVISION
ALL OF THIS COMES WHEN YOU ARE COVERED
BEING MARRIED IS A COVERING
BUT GUESS WHAT, MY WIFE IS A COVERING TO ME TOO
I WOULD NOT HAVE MADE IT WITHOUT HER
I TAKE HER WITH ME FOR THESE THINGS
PEOPLE WON’T SAY CERTAIN THINGS IF MY WIFE IS WITH ME
WHEN YOU HAVE A COVERING YOU HAVE THESE THREE THINGS
WHEN YOU STAYED IN YOUR PARENTS HOUSE YOU HAVE POWER, PROTECTION, PROVISION
IF YOU ARE COVERED BY A MINISTRY, YOU GET ALL THREE
WHEN THE PRIESTS WENT IN, THEY WERE EXCLUSIVE, WHICH SET THEM APART IN A CATEGORY ALL BY THEMSELVES
THIS POWER IS WITH GOD AND MEN
WHEN THE PRIESTS WALKED AMONGST MAN, THEY REPRESENTED GOD
WHEN THEY WALKED AMONGST GOD, THEY REPRESENTED MAN
THEY HAD POWER EITHER WAY
THE PRIESTS HAD SO MUCH POWER THAT IF THE HIGH PRIEST WOULD HAVE NEVER NODDED HIS HEAD, JESUS’ DEATH WOULD HAVE BEEN A MURDER AND NOT AN OFFERING
CHRIST COULD NOT BE AN OFFERING WITHOUT THE PRIEST
SO, WHAT THEY MEANT FOR EVIL JOSEPH, GOD MADE IT GOOD
THE BOOK OF HEBREWS SAYS THAT JESUS OFFERED UP HIMSELF
HE WAS BOTH THE OFFERER AND OFFERING
JESUS SAID, NO MAN TAKES MY LIFE, I LAY IT DOWN
AND IF I LAY IT DOWN, I WILL PICK IT BACK UP AGAIN
IF HE DID THAT AS A PRIEST, CAN WE DO IT
YES, WE CAN
Romans 12:1–2 KJV 1900
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
HE WANTS YOU TO DO LIKE JESUS AND OFFER UP YOURSELF AS AN OFFERING TO GOD
HERE’S MY CUP LORD...
I AM NOT GOING TO MAKE YOU TAKE IT FROM ME, I’M GOING TO PRESENT IT FREELY
THE FULL POWER OF WHO I AM WON’T BE REALISED UNTIL I’M DEAD
GOOD PARENTS ARE LIKE SHADE TREES, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE UNTIL THEY ARE CUT DOWN
I AM POWER, I AM PROTECTION, AND I AM PROVISION
EVERYBODY IN HERE NEEDS TO BE ABLE TO SAY THAT TO SOMEONE
YOU NEED TO BE SOMEONE’S POWER, PROTECTION, PROVISION
IF YOU GET ME, YOU GET AN ASSET
IF YOU GET ME, I WILL PROTECT YOU
LET’S GO IN
WHEN WE ENTER IN, IT IS THE PLACE OF PROVISION
IT IS PROVISION, THE PLACE OF BREAD
NO BREAD OUTSIDE
THE BREAD IS ON THE INSIDE
WHEN GOD STARTS TALKING ABOUT PROVISION, THE FIRST THING ABOUT IT IS SALVATION
WHEN GOD SAYS THAT I AM PROVISION/JIREH, IT MEANS THAT HE PROVIDES A SCAPEGOAT, A SUBSTITUTE, A SACRIFICE FOR YOUR SIN
I PROVIDE A PRICE FOR YOUR SINS SO THAT YOU COULD SIT WHERE YOU ARE SITTING RIGHT NOW
I PAID THE PRICE SO JUSTICE COULDN’T TOUCH YOU
BUT, IT PROVISION DOES GET TO THE PLACE WHERE GOD SAYS I WILL PROVIDE ALL OF YOUR NEEDS
I WILL SUPPLY ALL OF YOUR NEEDS ACCORDING TO MY RICHES IN GLORY
WHEN YOU ARE IN THE INSIDE YOU ARE GOING TO THE BREAD
IF YOU ARE GOING SOMEWHERE THEN YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHERE YOU CAME FROM
THE BRAZEN ALTAR WAS A BLOODY PLACE, THEN THEY WOULD HAVE TO CLEANSE AT THE LAVER
THE PROBLEM WITH THE CHURCH IS THAT IT IS STILL IN THE YARD
Hebrews 6:1 KJV 1900
Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
IT IS TIME TO GO ON
I BEEN OUT HERE TOO LONG
I HAVE TO GET IT OFF
GET IT OFF OF YOU
LET US GO ON UNTO PERFECTION
THE HEBREWS IS A GROUP OF JEWS THAT HAD STARTED BELIEVING ON JESUS
AND THEY WERE STARTING TO DOUBT AGAIN
DON’T LAY AGAIN THE FOUNDATION, GO ON TO THE FULLNESS OF GRACE
AND GO FROM GRACE TO GLORY
WHEN WE GO IN TO THE TENT, WE HAVE LEFT THE ALTAR OF SACRIFICE AND LAVER MADE OF BRONZE
NOW WE ARE IN THE TENT WHERE EVERYTHING IS GOLD
IF IT WAS GOLD WHEN IT WENT INTO THE FIRE, IT WILL BE GOLD WHEN IT COMES OUT
THE LORD KNOWS THE WAY THAT I TAKE AND I SHALL COME FORTH AS PURE GOLD
THE TABLE OF SHEWBREAD OR THE BREAD OF HIS PRESENCE
