Make it like God showed you

Old Testament: Exo 26.26–30

To read the Bible in a year, read Exodus 25–26 on January 31, In the year of our Lord Christ 2021

By Don Ruhl 

Everything about the tabernacle had to be made according to the specifications that the Lord had delivered to Moses: 

“And you shall make bars of acacia wood: five for the boards on one side of the tabernacle, five bars for the boards on the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the side of the tabernacle, for the far side westward. The middle bar shall pass through the midst of the boards from end to end. You shall overlay the boards with gold, make their rings of gold as holders for the bars, and overlay the bars with gold. And you shall raise up the tabernacle according to its pattern which you were shown on the mountain.”

– Exodus 26.26–30 

Perhaps that seems insignificant for Christians, but the Lord wanted this information included in his Scriptures for Christians. My job, therefore, is to find out what he wants me to learn. One room in the tabernacle represented heaven, and the other one represented the church. 

God knows precisely what he wants in heaven and what he wants in the church. Since we are in the church now, we need to follow his instructions in the Scriptures, just like he urged Moses to do when making the tabernacle. 


  • Where did Israel get the gold for making the tabernacle? 
  • Where did they get the wood?
