Show synopsis When God gave us the Holy Scriptures He concealed beneath the surface a vast wealth of spiritual truths for His people. In the tabernacle, it's furniture, and its service, God has hidden an inexhaustible mine of precious spiritual truths. For years many of us have passed over this hidden wealth, unconscious of its existence. But all the time it has been there awaiting our discovery. Elder Jones has listed the significance of 17 Bible numbers and gives us the meanings of the materials of the tabernacle, such as gold, silver, brass, blue, purple, scarlet, fine linen, shittim wood, oil, salt, leaven and much more. Learn about the furniture of the tabernacle - the ark, the golden cherubim above the mercy seat, the table of shewbread, the candlestick, the altar of incense, and the duties of the priests. As we attempt to walk in the midst of the truths of this ancient sanctuary may the Spirit of our God open our eyes and hearts to see Christ revealed therein. May we behold His divine perfection, His glorious attributes, His divine love, and the all-sufficiency of His matchless grace. From the author of: That Ye May Marvel or The Significance of Bible Numbers and A Verse by Verse Commentary on Revelation. ******* "It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us." (Hebrews 9:23-24).
