PREFACE
-----
THIS pamphlet is prepared for thinking Christians especially those,who “by reason of use, have their senses exercised to discern bothgood and evil.” (Heb. 5: 11-14)The author has sought to present not so much the details of theTabernacle structure and its furniture, as an explanation of theteachings, and of the significance of the typical sacrifices. Theformer have-been frequently described at length by other writers.In the interpretation of the types we accept as correct, only suchinterpretation, as is found in harmony with other features of thesame type, and with the plan and Word of God in general. Whenwe find this, and we believe it to be the case in those explanationsoffered in this little work, then we feel sure that we have the truthon the subject.As many of the thoughts are new, the readers will generally bemore benefited by a second or third reading than by the first.
 
This pamphlet is dedicated to the Priests and Levites of the GospelAge--The body of Christ, and Household of Faith--praying the Godof all grace that it may be blest to such as have an “ear to hear.”T

THE TABERNACLE
CHAPTER 1.
A DESCRIPTION OF ITS FURNITURE --ITS APARTMENTS--ITS PEOPLE
.
-----The Tabernacle which god commanded Israel to construct inthe Wilderness, and in connection with which, all their religiousservices and ceremonies were instituted, is, as Paul assures us, ashadow of good things to come. (Heb. 8: 5; 10:1; Col. 2:17). In factthe whole nation of Israel, with their laws and their religiousservices and ceremonies, was typical of the spiritual Israel, withtheir higher privileges, developed during the Gospel Age.This being true, our understanding of the plan and work of salvation now in progress, as will as its future developments,cannot fail to be greatly increased and cleared by a careful study of that Jewish shadow, which they repeated year by year continuallyfor our edification, who live in this Gospel Age. (1 Pet. 1:12)It is not simply to gain a historical knowledge of the Jewishforms, ceremonies, and worship, that we come to the investigationof this subject, but that we may be edified by understanding the
substance
from an examination of the shadow, as god designed inarranging it.We would fail to attach sufficient weight and importance to theshadow, unless we realize how carefully God guided and directedall of its details: First, taking Moses up into the mount and givinghim an illustration of just how things were to be made; Secondly,charging him to be very careful--”See, saith He, that thou make allthings after the pattern showed thee in the mount.” (Heb. 8:5, Ex.25:40). So too, with all the minutia of the service; every jot andtittle must be performed in the type, because it illustratedsomething great and grand coming after. And in order that theseshadows might all be
exactly
performed, and that the people mightnot become careless, the usual penalty for any violation was death:
