This limited exhibit offers Cherokee County and surrounding areas the opportunity to learn about God’s expression of love through the ancient sanctuary. Travel back over 3,000 years into the desert between Egypt and Palestine where more than two million people banded together to build a tabernacle for their God. Each article of the tabernacle had real significance to the Hebrew people and this tour will bring each symbol to life.
The command was communicated to Moses while in the mount with God, “Let them make Me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them;” and full directions were given for the construction of the tabernacle.
No language can describe the glory of the scene presented within the sanctuary—the gold-plated walls reflecting the light from the golden candlestick, the brilliant hues of the richly embroidered curtains with their shining angels, the table, and the altar of incense, glittering with gold; beyond the second veil the sacred ark, with its mystic cherubim, and above it the holy Shekinah, the visible manifestation of Jehovah’s presence; all but a dim reflection of the glories of the temple of God in heaven, the great center of the work for man’s redemption.
Thus in the ministration of the tabernacle, and of the temple that afterward took its place, the people were taught each day the great truths relative to Christ’s death and ministration, and once each year their minds were carried forward to the closing events of the great controversy between Christ and Satan, the final purification of the universe from sin and sinners.
The video link below shows more detail on the amount of work that has gone into this project, as well as how the Tabernacle points us to Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah).
