Notes

On Mount Sinai the Lord made a covenant with His people the children of Isreal through Moses their representative. When He had finished speaking with Moses, the Lord gave Moses two stone tablets inscribed with the terms of His covenant. These were the ten commandments, written by the finger of God, inscribed on both sides, front and back. The Hebrew word for “Testimony” refers to this - the Lord’s covenant with Israel on the stone tablets.

The 'Ark of the Testimony' is the gold-overlaid box which contained this Testimony. It also contained about 2.5 litres (an omer) of manna to remind the people of the way God had looked after them in the wilderness. The Ark of the Testimony had a cover on top of it - the mercy seat, or place of atonement. The Ark rested in the Most Holy Place of the tabernacle that God instructed Moses to make. This 'tabernacle of the Testimony' was a sanctuary where God came near to His people. 'There I will meet with you,' He said, 'and will speak with you above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are on the ark of the Testimony, about everything which I will give you in commandment to the children of Israel.'

A curtain separated the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place, shielding the Ark of the Testimony from the priests and the people. A lampstand stood in front of this inner curtain. Aaron and his sons were to keep the lamps burning in the Lord’s presence all night. This was a permanent law for the people of Israel, to be observed from generation to generation.

An incense altar was placed just outside the inner curtain. The incense to be used was a special mixture of spices ground into a very fine powder and put in front of the Ark of the Testimony. The incense was most holy. In the Lord’s presence the priest was to put the incense on the burning coals so that a cloud of incense rose over the Ark’s cover - the mercy seat that rested on the Ark of the Testimony. If he followed these instructions, he would not die.

Sacred oil was used to anoint the Tabernacle, the Ark of the Testimony, the table and all its articles, the lampstand and its accessories, the altar of incense, the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, and the basin with its stand. This consecrated them so they were most holy, and whatever touched them would be holy.

So important was the significance, meaning and symbolism associated with the ten commandments and the tabernacle of the Testimony that God specially chose a young man named Bezalel, of the tribe of Judah, to build the tabernacle. He filled him with the Holy Spirit and he was given skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts, to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of craftsmanship. And God personally appointed Oholiab, of the tribe of Dan, to be his assistant. He gave special skill to all the gifted craftsmen so they could make all the things He commanded Moses to make: the Tabernacle; the Ark of the Covenant; the Ark’s cover—the place of atonement; all the furnishings of the Tabernacle, and also the priestly woven garments, and the anointing oil and fragrant incense for the Holy Place. They were to make them exactly as the Lord had commanded Moses.

On the mountain it was Jesus as Lord who inscribed His Testimony on the stone tablets with His own finger. It was Jesus as Lord who gave the detailed plans for the tabernacle and required that they be executed exactly as specified. It was Jesus as Lord who demanded strict adherence to the daily and yearly tabernacle ceremonies by the priests and the people. In the same reverent way should we not treat the testimony of Jesus given in vision to John on Patmos? In the same reverent way should we not seek to understand and follow the message of the book of Revelation?
| Exodus | Leviticus | Notes |

The LORD commanded Moses

Exo.16.34 As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept.

 

To push with his horn

 

Exo.21.29 But if the ox were wont to push with his horn in time past, and it hath been testified to his owner, and he hath not kept him in, but that he hath killed a man or a woman; the ox shall be stoned, and his owner also shall be put to death.

There I will meet with thee

Exo.25.16 And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee.
Exo.25.21 And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.

Exo.25.22 And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.

The veil shall divide

Exo.26.33 And thou shalt hang up the veil under the taches, that thou mayest bring in thither within the veil the ark of the testimony: and the veil shall divide unto you between the holy place and the most holy.

Exo.26.34 And thou shalt put the mercy seat upon the ark of the testimony in the most holy place.

Aaron and his sons

 

Exo.27.21 In the tabernacle of the congregation without the veil, which is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall order it from evening to morning before the LORD: it shall be a statute for ever unto their generations on the behalf of the children of Israel.

Thou shalt anoint the tabernacle

Exo.30.6 And thou shalt put it before the veil that is by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy seat that is over the testimony, where I will meet with thee.
Exo.30.26 And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the congregation therewith, and the ark of the testimony,

Exo.30.36 And thou shalt beat some of it very small, and put of it before the testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation, where I will meet with thee: it shall be unto you most holy.

Tables of stone

Exo.31.7 The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the tabernacle,
Exo.31.18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.

 

The testimony were in his hand

 

Exo.32.15 And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables were written on both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they written.

His face shone

Exo.34.29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.

 

Son to Aaron the priest

 

Exo.38.21 This is the sum of the tabernacle, even of the tabernacle of testimony, as it was counted, according to the commandment of Moses, for the service of the Levites, by the hand of Ithamar, son to Aaron the priest.

Ark of the testimony

Exo.39.35 The ark of the testimony, and the staves thereof, and the mercy seat,

 

The altar of gold for the incense

Exo.40.3 And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the ark with the veil.
Exo.40.5 And thou shalt set the altar of gold for the incense before the ark of the testimony, and put the hanging of the door to the tabernacle.

Exo.40.20 And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the staves on the ark, and put the mercy seat above upon the ark:
Exo.40.21 And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the veil of the covering, and covered the ark of the testimony; as the LORD commanded Moses.

The incense upon the fire

Lev.16.13 And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the LORD, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not:

 

Before the LORD continually

 

Lev.24.3 Without the veil of the testimony, in the tabernacle of the congregation, shall Aaron order it from the evening unto the morning before the LORD continually: it shall be a statute for ever in your generations.
