TABERNACLE (PATTERN) COMPARED TO THE PHYSICAL BODY
Now that we understand that Moses saw the Elohim (God) of
Israel in the year 1490 B.Y. (before Yahshua) after he had led the Israelites out of Egypt, it is necessary that we acquaint
the reader with certain other facts regarding this Vision. Moses wrote, “and there was under His
FEET as it were the paved work of a sapphire stone and as it were the BODY of heaven in His clearness” (Exodus
24:10). Here we see that Moses writes of the Elohim of Israel having feet and a body which proves that he was seeing a supernatural
spirit being in the form of a man. Then Moses sees this great anthropomorphic being create ALL things after Himself, including
the man, that is, Elohim was the Pattern for everything He created.
The Universe in its totality being made
up of invisible atoms is fashioned after Him. Each atom is a proton, neutron and an electron corresponding to the three-fold
Pattern (Elohim) who is the fullness of the Godhead bodily, namely, the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit all in ONE. We
have already explained to the reader how that Moses also saw this Super Incorporeal Form instantaneously transform itself
into a three-fold, intangible Tabernacle which explains the three-fold makeup of the Super Incorporeal Form. This three-fold
Tabernacle also is the explanation of the three-fold makeup of everything that is in the Universe, or out of the Universe
as far as that is concerned.
Yahweh Himself is spirit (John 4:24) and
in this state, He is inconceivable, incomprehensible, inscrutable and invisible. Everything abides in Yahweh or Pure Spirit;
there is nothing co-existent or co-eternal with Pure Spirit. It is the Source and Substance, the Limits and the Bounds
of everything both invisible and visible. This Pure Spirit state of Yahweh can be likened unto a cloud which has no
conceivable shape or form; and in this Spirit is encouched the attributes of Intelligence, Wisdom, Knowledge, Beauty, Love,
Justice, Power, Foundation and Strength. These attributes become united together in a conceivable shape and form which Moses
viewed as the Great Elohim. This Elohim then was Pure Spirit (Yahweh) in shape and form abiding within the vast Pure Spirit
substance that was as yet unformed (meanibg: It did not take all of the Pure Spirit substance to form the
Super Incorporeal Form of Elohim).
Then Elohim creates the physical man, Adam, in His likeness and image; and
then some four thousand (4000) years later, Elohim Himself, is manifested in a physical body and walked around in the Universe
[the earth plane] that He had created (John 1:14; I Timothy 3:16). This transmutation of Pure Spirit (without
shape and form) into a Super Incorporeal shape and form, and then into a physical form, sets up a pattern that the whole Universe
testifies of and confirms (the Unity Of The Spirit or supernal nature of Yahweh, also called the Godhead). This
is Elohim, the archetye (original) pattern of the Universe.
Let us witness the conception of a human being to see if it follows this Pattern. Firstly,
Volume III, Page 4
all physical beings were without shape and form at one
time. And all of the attributes and physical characteristics that were to make up such human beings were encouched
within the grayish white sexual secretions (cloud-like) of the male and female when they come together. These primordial invisible
substances are called genes and chromosomes which later come together in an orderly fashion to bring about a shape and form
still yet invisible to the naked eye. But later, through the amalgamation of cells, the shape and form becomes
visible as a tiny embryo and later a fetus, and then a newborn infant. Every human being born into the world has definitely
followed this course of procedure in being born.
Not only does everyone follow this three-step conception of first
— being without shape and form, later in shape and form; but still invisible to the naked eye, and then in gross shape
and form. But each constituent cell, fiber, and tissue making up his developing body is three-fold. Each living
cell composing the physical body is made up of a nucleolus, a nucleus, and cell body Exception: mature red blood cells have
no nucleus). Then these cells are differentiated according to their position in the developing embryo into endodermal (the
inner cell layer), mesodermal (middle cell layer) and ectodermal (outer cell layer) constituting tissues. These tissues then
make up organs which are of necessity three-fold according to the type of tissues composing them, and then organs constitute
systems of which there are three (3) sets of threes e.g. (1) nervous, endocrine, and reproductive (2) respiratory, circulatory
and excretory (3) digestive, skeletal and muscular. These nine systems work harmoniously to constitute the total physical
being who then is over-all Spirit, Soul and Body.
Man is, therefore, a three-fold being from start to finish
and he is definitely and positively fashioned after Elohim, the shape and form of Yahweh. As we deal more and more with the
different organs and systems of the physical body, one will find even more evidence of this three-fold nature of man.
Let us now turn our attention to a comparison of the three-fold
Moses was called up into Mount Sinai where Yahweh gave him Divine specifications for building the Tabernacle
in the third month after Israel had left Egypt (Exodus 19:1). This third month of the Jews’ sacred calendar year would
correspond with the month of June in our Gregorian calendar year. Considering that Moses was in the Mount for forty (40) days
and then began to build the Tabernacle and knowing that the Tabernacle was completed and reared up on the first day of the
first month of the second year (Exodus 40:17) after the Israelites left Egypt (April 1st), one can see that it was nine months
in the building. How beautifully this is correlated to the Tabernacle of our physical bodies that require nine (9) months
also to be built by Yahweh in the womb!
Tabernacle that Moses built had three coverings of goat’s skin, ram’s skin dyed red and badger’s skin, and
our physical bodies are composed of mainly three layers of skin, subcutaneous tissue and muscle!
Moses saw the Vision of the creation for six (6) days while in the cloud that covered the
Mount, and he saw Elohim rest on the seventh (7th) day; but Moses was in the Mount for forty (40) days, so that leaves thirty-three
(33) days that Elohim was showing Moses all of the generations of the flesh coming out of Adam, and instructing him about
the building of the Tabernacle. These thirty-three days were fulfilled (Matthew 5:17) by Yahshua the Messiah tarrying on earth
in the flesh for thirty-three years (one day for a year in prophetic time - Numbers 14:34, Ezekiel 4:6). Then when we examine
the physical body we find that it has thirty-three vertebrae in the vertebral column — one vertebra for each day that
Moses dwelled in the Mount after seeing the Vision of the creation (the 7 days): or one vertebra for each year that
Messiah dwelled upon the earth. The Tabernacle of Moses was the backbone of Israel’s faith in Yahweh, and Yahshua the
Messiah being our redeemer, is the backbone of our faith in Yahweh. It is the vertebral column that gives man his upright
position, and Yahshua is our uprightness in Yahweh.
of Moses was surrounded by the twelve tribes of Israel gathered around it, and this was fulfilled by Yahshua the Messiah by
His gathering the twelve disciples around Him and these twelve disciples later were apostles of the faith in the Dispensation
of Grace (Present Age). This was confirmed by the Apostle John in his Vision on the Isle of Patmos for he
Volume III Page 5
spoke of the twenty-four (24) elders gathered
around the throne of Yahweh (Revelation 4:4). These twenty-four (24) elders were the twelve (12) heads of the Tribes of Israel
under the Dispensation of the Mosaic Law, and the twelve Apostles in the Dispensation of Grace all gathered around the Messiah
who came in to fulfill the Mosaic Law and bring it to an end. Seeing that man is made in the likeness and image of Yahweh,
then he must display in his physical body the same situation for he does have the twenty-four ribs, twelve on each side, and all
gathered around the vertebral column with its thirty-three vertebrae typifying the Messiah’s thirty-three years in the
Then one must also consider that the
whole body of Israel were led by the cloud wherever they sojourned; they did not move unless the cloud moved (Exodus 40:36-38,
Numbers 9th chapter). The Spirit of Yahweh dwelled in the cloud. Yahshua the Messiah fulfilled this by His obedience to the
Will of His Father in not doing anything except that which was ordained of the Father (Spirit or cloud). He was led of the
Spirit (cloud) into the Wilderness of Judea (Matthew 4:1). This same cloud that led the Israelites out of Egypt through the
Wilderness of Sinai and on into Canaan Land was the same cloud that dwelled between the wings of the Cherubims which
over shadowed the Mercy Seat in the Most Holy Place of the Tabernacle. So when one examines the physical body, he finds that
there is a grayish-white substance that fills his cranial cavity or head region which we call the brain. And it is divided
into a right and left half corresponding to the two cherubims of glory on either side of the Ark. And it is from the
brain that man receives his orders to move, or think or do anything; so we also are by a cloud throughout our journeying in
this Wilderness below (this earth plane).
will now show the correlationship of the Mosaic Tabernacle with the anatomy and physiology of our physical body.
Please keep in mind that the physical Tabernacle which Moses built in the Wilderness of Sinai is an exact copy of the Spiritual
Tabernacle which he saw in the Vision in Mount Sinai. Therefore, when we speak of the physical component parts of our physical
body and compare them with the structures in the Mosaic Tabernacle, we are speaking always of the spiritual things that these
structures stand for. For instance, when we speak of the physical heart and compare it with the physical Table of Shewbread,
we are really speaking of that Spiritual sustenance or bread which is Yahshua the Messiah. All things of the Mosaic Tabernacle
and our physical body (in fact, all natural things) point to the Messiah or Yahweh; and He (the Messiah) is the fulfillment
of all of them.
This discourse will be of no effect if one does not keep in mind that it is relating to and concerning
spiritual things at all times.
If you, the
reader, will refer to the chart entitled, “Man Made In The Image of Elohim By The Pattern Of The Tabernacle,”
you will be able to follow the correlative explanation of the structure and function of the Mosaic Tabernacle with
the anatomy and physiology of man’s body. The illustration on the left is the Mosaic Tabernacle; the illustration in
the center of course, is the physical body with the head, chest and abdominal cavities exposed showing the positioning of
the internal organs. The illustration below shows an interchanging of the organs of the physical body with the furnishings
of the Mosaic Tabernacle to unmistakingly show the detailed and polytechnical comparison.
IN THE FOLLLOWING SEQUENCE Of NUMBERED EXPLANATIONS...
corresponding number denotes the same structure in each illustration and the numbers (denoted by #) will be inserted wherever
necessary throughout our discourse so as to not break the continuity of thought.
#1 - Is the Most Holy Place of the Mosaic Tabernacle. #2 - Shows the two Archangels or Cherubims
of Glory over-shadowing the Mercy Seat with their wings touching in the middle. #3 - Illustrates the Cloud dwelling between
them and above the Mercy Seat. The Cloud denotes the dwelling place of Yahweh (Exodus 25:22) and the large eye signifies His
ever presence and attention to the deeds of man (Proverbs 15:3). In the Ark of the Covenant beneath the Mercy Seat, (#4) one
sees the two tables of the Mosaic Law placed therein. (The door in front is just for the purpose of illustrating the two
tables of the commandment Law). Actually there was a lid on top which formed the Mercy Seat.

These two Archangels represented Michael, a warrior who
was always sent to carry out some action for Yahweh, and Gabriel who was sent to deliver messages (Jude 9; Revelation 12.7
K.J.V; Daniel 8:16; Luke 1:26). Furthermore, the invisible presence of Yahweh in the Cloud was signified by the manifestation
of the Shekinah (which really was a vision of Elohim seen by the High Priest on the Day of Atonement).
#1 - The cranial or head cavity of man’s physical body corresponds
with the Most Holy Place of the Mosaic Tabernacle.
- The right and left halves of the brain which come together in the mid-line corresponds with the two Archangels, and the
two main functions of the brain. One in carrying out some action (motor function) corresponds to the duties of Michael, and
two, the sending and receiving of messages (sensory function) corresponds with the duties of Gabriel.
#3 - The brain itself is composed of gray and white matter likened unto the Cloud which over-
shadowed the Mercy Seat, and it is by means of our brain that we are in touch with, and minutely aware of everything going
on around us. It is really like one great big Cycloptic Eye in our heads, (even the two eyes see as one eye). The
Pineal gland located in the center of the Brain was likened unto a Cycloptic Eye by the Ancients, or Greek Mythologists and
also was thought to be the seat of all sensations.
#4 - The
two Lobes of the Pituitary Gland (the master gland of the body) corresponds to the two tables of the Mosaic Law, and they
are placed in a bony receptacle in the base of the brain and are covered over by a covering just as the Lid covered the Ark
of the Covenant. In our diagram on the right,( in the mouth of the man) you will see the word LAW.
This is to show the close approximation of the pituitary gland to the roof of the mouth, and it is out of the mouth that the
LAW proceeds. Malachi wrote: “The law of truth was in his mouth” (Malachi 2:6).
The Vision of the Shekinah seen in the Cloud in the Most Holy Place of the Tabernacle can
be correlated with the configuration of the blood vessels supplying the brain which take the shape of a stick- figure of a
man (symbolizing Elohim).
#5 - The Second Vail of the Mosaic
Tabernacle divides the Most Holy Place from the Holy Place, and it is blue, purple and scarlet in color. This corresponds
with the neck of man’s physical body which divides the head or cranial cavity from the chest cavity. All the blood vessels
passing into the head cavity are gathered together in the neck in one great profusion, the veins (colored blue to denote
impure blood), the arteries (colored red or scarlet to denote pure or oxygenated blood), and the presence of the iodine filled
thyroid gland (iodine means violet or purple) denotes the purple of this dividing Vail of the neck.
#6 - In the Holy Place of the Mosaic Tabernacle, one sees the High Priest standing at (#7)
the Golden Altar of Incense burning incense which consisted of four principle ingredients called stacte, onycha, galbanum,
and frankincense, which were sweet odoriferous spices (Exodus 30:34-38). This Incense perfumed the entire Tabernacle and ascended
through the second Vail into the Most Holy Place where Yahweh dwelled in the Cloud above the Mercy Seat, and was a sweet smelling
savor to Him for it represented the intercession made by the Holy Ghost (Elohim) to the Father (Yahweh).
#8 - The seven branched Golden Candlestick (lampstand) can be seen on the left
in the Holy Place where it gave Light unto the Sanctuary so that there was never any darkness there. It was extinguished
at nine o’clock in the morning, when the daylight illuminated the Sanctuary; it was trimmed and made ready for the re-
lighting at three o’clock in the afternoon when daylight began to fade; and it would burn all through the night until
the next morning. All of the seven branches of it proceeded out of the main stem on either side, and it was filled with oil
from the main stem.
#9 - The Golden Table of Shewbread can
be seen on the right side of the Holy Place with its two stacks of bread (six loaves in each stack). It is a four-sided furnishing
with a golden crown around the border of it. The High Priest ate daily of the bread on the Table of
Volume III Page 7
Shewbread which was kept ever present
for him. This was his daily sustenance as well as the meat offering and drink offering of which he partook.
Comparing the Holy Place of the Tabernacle with #6, the chest
cavity of the physical body one finds (#7) the lungs serving the same capacity or function as the Golden Altar of Incense.
To be real polytechnical, one finds that the larynx situated above the windpipe or trachea has two superior cornu (Horns)
and two inferior cornu just as the Golden Altar of Incense had four horns on it - one at each corner. The air which we breathe
is composed mainly of four ingredients, nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide and hydrogen, (as aqueous vapor) which corresponds
to the four principle ingredients of the incense burned on the Golden Altar of Incense. Yes, and air or oxygen is burned in
our bodies for the process of oxidation which is the uniting of oxygen with other substances in a burning process.
It need not be said that breathing of good fresh air is a sweet
smelling savor unto all of the tissues of the body, and that it fragranizes all of the body just as the Incense did the Tabernacle.
The brain corresponding to the cloud where Yahweh dwelled is especially expectant and desirous of this air or oxygen; as it
is the most vulnerable of all the body tissues when it comes to oxygen lack (remember the incense wafting through the second
Vail into the Most Holy Place). Let us remind the reader at this point that Yahweh forbade anyone to duplicate the Holy Incense
and only the High Priest knew how to make it (Exodus 30:37-38). Doesn’t this compare beautifully with the fact that
NO ONE has yet been able to determine the exact composition of Air which only Yahweh knows!
#8 - The seven branched Golden Candlestick (lampstand) corresponds with
the Aorta, that great blood vessel which comes off the heart and has just seven (7) branches which distribute oxygenated blood
to all the body.
We shall designate the seven branches of the Candlestick by letters to differentiate or distinguish from our regular use of
(a) The innominate artery coming off of the arch of the aorta typifies the main stem of the candlestick
and it gives off (b) the right common carotid and (c) right subclavian arteries; (d) the left common carotid and (e) left
subclavian also come off at the arch of the Aorta; while the (f) right and (g) left coronary arteries come off of the ascending
Aorta. The descending Aorta in its thoracic portion gives off numerous branches which are too small to diminish its size.
The blood circulating through this great vessel, the Aorta, gives life unto the whole body continuously day and night just
as the oil burning in the Golden Candlestick furnished continual light unto the Tabernacle. Even the flickering of the light
of the candlestick can be likened unto the pulsation of the Aorta and its branches.
#9 - The Golden Table of Shewbread compares with the four-chambered heart. As the Golden Candlestick
was placed on the one side of the Holy Place, and the Golden Table of Shewbread on the other side, so is the heart placed
more to the left side and the Aorta more to the right side of the body. The four chambers of the heart compares with the four
corners of the Table of Shewbread. The bread placed in two stacks on the table signifies the two halves of the heart, the
right and the left. The golden crown around the border of the Table corresponds to the coronary (which means crown) vessels
encircling the heart, and the heart is truly one’s daily bread for it is by the constant beating of the heart that life
#10 - The First Vail separated
the Holy Place from (#11) the Outer Court, and entry was by the door seen in our diagram on the left. Immediately before the
door is (#12) the Brazen Laver which contained water for washing the sacrificial animals before placing them on (#14) the
Brazen Altar of sin offering which is located just inside (#15) the Gate of the Outer Court (the East end of the Court) .
The Brazen Laver had a foot or pedestal on which it stood, and the Brazen Altar was a four-cornered furnishing with a horn
on each corner where blood was placed during the sacrificial ceremonies. Over the head of the High Priest is pictured a vessel
containing (#13) the Holy Anointing Oil which was poured on the head of the Priest, and signified anointing by the Holy Spirit
Page 8 Volume III
In our diagram on the right, one can see
that (#10) the Diaphragm forms the First Vail and separated the chest cavity from (#11) the abdominal cavity which is the
Outer Court of the physical body and that (#12) the two kidneys which are ordinarily located in the right and left flanks
of the body are brought together to form a perfect configuration of the Brazen Laver. One might ask the question, WHY
then are they (the two kidneys) separated in the physical body? It is to prove conclusively that Yahweh did divide
the waters of the Red Sea for Moses and the Israelites, for the kidneys with water therein represent the Red Sea and
the Brazen Laver. (The reader will find a fuller explanation of this under the subject of the Excretory System and the Pattern).
The sides and foot of the Brazen Laver are formed by the two ureters
descending from the kidneys and the urinary bladder where the urine is held until passage. The protuberances above each kidney
represents (#13) the Adrenal Glands which contain the substance adrenaline which quickens the various muscles and other tissues
of the body just as the Holy Anointing Oil did the High Priest. The picture-frame configuration of the Large Intestines represent
the Brazen Altar, and the small intestines where most of the food is digested (burned) are located within this frame-work.
The food thus becomes the sacrifice which is burned on the Altar.
The Gate of the Outer Court corresponds with (#15) the rectal opening by which all solid waste products
of digestion are eliminated, just as the skin, hair, and other portions of the sacrificial animals were taken without the
camp and discarded or burned.
The bone structure
of man’s physical body represents the pillars, bars and boards which were the supporting structures of the Tabernacle.
The Tibia bone in the leg or Femur bone in the thigh are good examples of a pillar which made up the Tabernacle; the flat
bones such as the Scapula, and bones of the Skull are good examples of boards of the Tabernacle; whereas the short, stubby
bones as the Metacarpal bones of the hand, the Metatarsal bones of the foot are good examples of the bars of the Tabernacle.
This then has been a polytechnical comparison
of the Mosaic Tabernacle with the Tabernacle of man’s body. But please bear in mind that the physical or visible
things point to the invisible or spiritual things (Romans 1:19-20). Yes, Yahshua the Messiah was a physical man just like
you or I; but, He was really Yahweh who is Spirit manifested in a visible form. Therefore, all of the component
parts or members of our physical body are physical expressions of Spiritual things, such as: Intelligence, Wisdom, Knowledge,
Love, Beauty, Justice, Foundation, Power and Strength (nine major ones only) which are the Divine Attributes or
members which make up the Spiritual Super Incorporeal Body of Elohim.
In summation: let me say that this simple Yahweh given Pattern not only fits
the physical body, but everything in the cosmographical make-up of this Universe. The smallest bit of matter that man has
any knowledge of, the Atom, is basically composed of a Proton, Neutron and Electron, corresponding to the Most Holy Place,
Holy Place and Outer Court of the Mosaic Tabernacle. And the Scientists to date have found only nine classifications
of sub-atomic particles which make up the Atom, which further compares with the nine furnishings of the Tabernacle (the Ark
of the Covenant with two (2) Archangels, one on either side, being made of one-piece was a threefold oneness
(3 = 1) furnishing in the Most Holy Place; the Golden Altar of Incense, Table of Shewbread, and Golden Candlestick were
the three furnishings in the Holy Place; and the Brazen Laver, Holy Anointing Oil, and Brazen Altar of Sacrifice were the
three furnishings in the Outer Court).
us re-state that the minute Cell whether animal or plant is three-fold, being composed of a nucleolus, a nucleus and cell
body. ALL matter is either a gas, liquid or solid; so no matter which way one turns, this Divine Pattern has the situation
covered. WHY? Because the pattern is Elohim Himself, for He is the Archetype or Original Pattern of Everything;
and the Pattern proves His existence and manifests His ETERNAL PURPOSE operating throughout the Dispensations and Ages.
We have already explained how that Moses SAW Elohim, the Super
Incorporeal Form of Yahweh, instantaneously transform Himself into a three-fold Tabernacle; that is to say, the Tabernacle
was drawn right out of the Super Incorporeal Form. The Super Incorporeal Form is the Spiritual Temple which is the more glorious
structure or edifice which is Elohim or the Word
Volume III Page 9
of Yahweh, and the Tabernacle is the less
glorious structure which represents the physical man or Yahshua the Messiah. However,
as the Super Incorporeal Elohim and the Intangible Tabernacle are one and the same, so is the Temple and Tabernacle the same.
If therefore, the man is a physical Tabernacle he is also a physical Temple. So, after the Israelites had built the
physical Tabernacle and had followed it around and finally came to Canaan Land, they had to build a more glorious edifice
or building known as Solomon’s Temple which they constructed in Mount Moriah. The Pattern of this Temple was given to
David in a Vision by Elohim passing His hand over David’s physical body and showing him how to build the Temple by his
own physical anatomy and physiology (as a king sitting on his throne). David wrote about this thusly, “All this,"
said David, Elohim made me understand in writing by His hand upon me, even all the works of this Pattern” (1
Elohim, the Immortal King
in Heavenly Jerusalem just laid His Super Incorporeal Body over David’s physical body (David being King in the earthly
Jerusalem) in a Vision and made him to know how to build the Temple which specifications he passed on to his son, Solomon,
who built the Temple. After the Temple was constructed, then the weather-beaten Tabernacle which stood out on Mount Zion was
dismantled and all of the furnishings were moved into the Temple just as Moses had seen it drawn out of the Temple in his
The Apostle Paul, speaking of this wrote, “For we know that if our earthly house of this Tabernacle
were dissolved, we have a building of Elohim (the Temple) an house not made with hands, Eternal in the Heavens. For in this
(our physical Tabernacle) we groan earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven” (2
Corinthians 5:1-2). And the Apostle Peter wrote in this manner, “Yea, I think it necessary, as long as I am in this
Tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance; Knowing that shortly I must put off this my Tabernacle, even as
our Saviour Yahshua the Messiah hath showed me” (2 Peter 1:13-14, H.N.B. - when Yahshua took off His physical body
or transfigured in Mount Transfiguration, Matthew 17).
So when we examine Solomon’s Temple we find that it was built on Mount Moriah and one had to go up into the Temple
from one part to another. It was a three-fold structure just as the Tabernacle, being composed of a Porch (Outer Court), a
Sanctuary (Holy Place) and an Oracle (Most Holy Place). The Porch was at the lowest level, the Sanctuary was higher up, and
the Oracle was at the highest part of the Temple. The whole structure was fashioned like unto a man sitting on a throne. The
two Great Pillars (Joachim and Boaz) that flanked the entrance to the Porch are likened unto the legs of a man in a sitting
position. The Porch itself would be likened unto his thighs, the Sanctuary would be likened unto the region of the hips to
the neck, and the Oracle with its rounded dome would be likened unto the head region of a man. And the Temple being overlaid
with gold without and within pertains to the glorious excellence of the Spiritual Edifice or Body, the inner cavities of man’s
physical body is lined also with a glistening gold appearing layer depicting the excellence of the inner man or the Soul.
In confirmation of all that Moses SAW in his Vision, the Apostle John (shown on the inner cover) was on the Isle of
Patmos as a witness, and he described the same Super Incorporeal Form of a man that Moses SAW, and he likened it unto the
Tabernacle. His description of this Man (Elohim) fits the Tabernacle exactly. He said that he SAW One like unto the Son of
Man clothed with a garment down to his feet, (likened unto the coverings of the Tabernacle), and girt about the paps with
a golden girdle (likened unto the vessels of gold in the Holy Place and Most Holy Place).
John further said that his head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as
snow (likened unto the cloud above the Mercy Seat in the Most Holy Place) and his eyes were as a flame of fire (likened unto
the Shekinah or glorious image of Light that the High Priest witnessed in the Most Holy Place in the Cloud); and his feet
like unto fine brass (likened unto the vessels of brass in the Outer Court of the Tabernacle), as if they burned in a furnace
(likened unto the Fire on the Brazen Altar in the Outer Court).
And John said that when he SAW HIM he fell at his
feet, as dead, and that he laid his
Page 10 Volume III
right hand upon him (Revelation 1:8-18,
H.N.B., 1:7-18 K.J.V.). Thus, John confirms Moses’ description of the Super Incorporeal Form transforming itself into
an Intangible Tabernacle, and he describes it as a Man.
John further stated that he was given a REED like unto a ROD and was told to rise and measure the Temple of Yahweh, and
the Altar (Altar of Sacrifice) but to leave out the Court Without (Revelation 11:1-2; 21:15-17 K.J.V.). And that is exactly
what we are doing in this treatise for we are measuring and comparing the Temple and Tabernacle or the Divine Pattern or the
Rod with man’s physical body, but since we understand that the physical things are only types and shadows of the Spiritual
things, we leave out the flesh or the Court Without.
The Apostle John also spoke of seeing the Temple of the Tabernacle of Yahweh opened in Heaven, and the Temple was filled
with smoke from the Glory of Yahweh, and from His Power, and this perfectly fits Moses’ seeing Elohim breathe into the
nostrils of Adam the Breath of Life (smoke) and he became a Living Soul, typifying the inner man (Revelation 15:5-8). John
furthermore witnesses the crucifixion of Yahshua the Messiah (the fleshly Tabernacle or Temple) at age thirty-three (33) years,
just as Moses witnessed Yahweh telling him how to construct the Tabernacle and how it was to function throughout the remaining
thirty-three (33) days of his Vision in the Mount after he had witnessed the Creation of the Universe in six (6) days and
SAW Yahweh rest on the seventh (7th) day, he was in the Mount a total of forty (40) days. Likewise, Solomon’s Temple
stood unmolested for thirty-three (33) years before it was pillaged by Shishak from Egypt. Hence, man’s physical body
has thirty-three (33) vertebrae which cause him to stand erect or upright in the eyesight of Yahweh. And as He picked twelve
(12) disciples to minister with Him who functioned in the Dispensation of Grace (the Apostles) in fulfillment of the
Twelve (12) Heads of the Tribes of Israel who were gathered around the Tabernacle in the Wilderness; hence, the
Apostle John spoke of the twenty-four (24) Elders around the Throne of Yahweh (Revelation 4:4). Therefore, the physical man
must have twelve (12) ribs on one side of his body and twelve (12) ribs on the other side of his body, making a total of twenty-four
(24) ribs gathered around the vertebral column.
And in the last chapter of Revelation, John wrote of seeing a Pure River of Water of Life proceeding out of the Throne of
Yahweh and the Lamb (Revelation 22:1). How beautifully does this compare with the crystal clear cerebro-spinal fluid that
proceeds out of the Brain and courses on down through the Spinal Cord. Truly, man is made in the Likeness and Image of Yahweh-Elohim.
In Solomon’s Temple the walls,
ceilings and doors were of fir or cedar wood (Evergreens) and figures of angels, palm trees and flowers were carved in the
wood, and then gold was pressed into these figures so that they definitely became a part of the building (1 Kings 6:29-35).
This was not so with the Tabernacle for angelic figures were embroidered in the vails and curtains of the Most Holy and Holy
Places, so that one standing in either place would see them all around the walls, ceilings and vails, and they took on the
Blue, Purple, and Scarlet colors of the vails and curtains. The above facts have great spiritual significance for this reason:
the angelic figures of Solomon’s Temple by virtue of their being carved into the wood were themselves the component
parts of the building and were just as permanent and steadfast as the building. As the Apostle Peter said, “Ye,
also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to
Yahweh by Yahshua the Messiah” (1 Peter 2:5); And the Apostle Paul said, “For we being many are one bread,
and one body; for we are all partakers of that one bread” (1 Corinthians 10:17). The Apostle Paul also said “Now
therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints (Sons of Yahweh) and of the household
of Yahweh; and are built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Yahshua the Messiah Himself being the Chief Corner
Stone; in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto a holy temple unto Elohim; in Whom ye also are builded
together for a habitation of Elohim through the Spirit” (Ephesians 2:19- 22). Therefore, the angelic figures of

things unto Himself” (Philippians 3:20-21).
