Honoring God, and His Sabbath, and His Chosen People.

Unless otherwise stated, all scriptures in this article were taken from the New American Standard Bible translation, 1995 Update.

I. Shabbat – Friday Sunset To Saturday Sunset.

Genesis 1 – The Creation. Notice that each day begins in the evening.

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
5 And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
8 And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
13 There was evening and there was morning, a third day.
19 There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.
23 There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.
31 (a) God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.
32 (b) And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

Genesis 2

The Seventh Day Sanctified

1 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their hosts. 2 By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

Consider The Sabbath (Sabbath is the Hebrew word for seventh. Ryrie Study Bible, Genesis 2:2 note.)

Only the seventh day of the week can be the Sabbath. It has been my observation that the Holiness of the Sabbath has been largely discarded by much of Christendom, with a mindset of, “Jews and Seventh Day Adventists do it!” We must not be numb to the significance of Genesis 2:3.

Leviticus 11:44

Personal Holiness

44 For I am the Lord your God. Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am holy.

To not honor God, “that’s not good.” To not honor the Sabbath, “that’s not good, either.” To not honor God’s Chosen People, the Jews, we will take a quick look at that matter.”

God’s Chosen People

Genesis 12:1-3
1 Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go forth from your country, And from your relatives, And from your father’s house, To the land which I will show you; 2 And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; 3 And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.” (verse 3, “I will bless those who bless you.” This passage relates to Abraham and his seed-covenant descendants, the Jews.)

Deuteronomy 14:2
2 For you are a holy people to the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth. (God chose the Jews for the special purpose of bringing the Messiah into the world. The Jews will have a special place of habitation during the Kingdom Age (Re Gen 12:2; 15:18-21)from the Nile River in Egypt to the Euphrates River in Iraq.)

Zechariah 8:20-23
20 “Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘It will yet be that peoples will come, even the inhabitants of many cities. 21 The inhabitants of one will go to another, saying, “Let us go at once to entreat the favor of the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts; I will also go.” 22 So many peoples and mighty nations will come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem and to entreat the favor of the Lord.’ 23 Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘In those days ten men from all the nations will grasp the garment of a Jew, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.”’”…… During the thousand-year Kingdom Age, Gentiles will recognize Jews as being blessed by God, vs 23. These Gentiles and Jews will have entered into the time of the millennium in mortal bodies after having accepted Christ during the Tribulation. Jews and Gentiles that were not present during the tribulation, will also be present during the Kingdom Age, but in immortal bodies, ruling and reigning with Christ. Jews will rule over Jews (Luke 22:29-30), and Gentiles will rule over Gentiles (1 Corinthians 6:2). Jews will inhabit their “promised land,” and Gentiles will reside outside of the promised land of the Jews, but will be free to enter it, per Zech 8:22. It will be at the end of the Kingdom Age that the eternal state will begin. The following (II. End Times) discusses the Tribulation, which will precede the Kingdom Age.

II. End Times

Revelation 10:1—11:14 serves as a pause between the sixth trumpet and the seventh trumpet (11:15). The seals and the bowls also have a brief pause between their sixth and seventh judgments (7:1–17; 16:15).

Revelation 10

The Angel and the Little Book

1 I saw another strong angel coming down out of heaven, clothed with a cloud; and the rainbow was upon his head, and his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire; 2 and he had in his hand a little book which was open. He placed his right foot on the sea and his left on the land; 3 and he cried out with a loud voice, as when a lion roars; and when he had cried out, the seven peals of thunder uttered their voices. 4 When the seven peals of thunder had spoken, I was about to write; and I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Seal up the things which the seven peals of thunder have spoken and do not write them.” 5 Then the angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land lifted up his right hand to heaven, 6 and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things in it, and the earth and the things in it, and the sea and the things in it, that there will be delay no longer, 7 but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, then the mystery of God is finished, as He preached to His servants the prophets.

8 Then the voice which I heard from heaven, I heard again speaking with me, and saying, “Go, take the book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the land.” 9 So I went to the angel, telling him to give me the little book. And he *said to me, “Take it and eat it; it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey.” 10 I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it, and in my mouth it was sweet as honey; and when I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter. 11 And they *said to me, “You must prophesy again concerning many peoples and nations and tongues and kings.”

Comments follow for Revelation 10:1-11. Notes were considered from the works of Drs. John Walvoord, Charles Ryrie and John MacArthur.

10:1 another mighty angel. The Greek word translated “another” means one of the same kind, that is, a created being. This is not one of the 7 angels responsible for sounding the trumpets (8:2), but one of the highest ranking in heaven.

10:2 little book. The 7 sealed scroll that is the title deed to the earth will be fully opened and all the final judgments made visible. “Right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land.” Although Satan has temporarily usurped the sea and the earth, this symbolic act demonstrates that all creation belongs to the Lord and He rules it with sovereign authority.

10:4 Seal up. John was told he must conceal the message of the 7 thunders until God’s time (cf. 22:10; Dan. 8:26, 27; 12:9).

10:5 raised up his hand. This Greek verb appears often in the sense of raising the hand to take an oath or a solemn vow (cf. Dan. 12:7; see notes on Matt. 5:33, 34). The hand is raised toward heaven because that is where God dwells. The angel is taking an oath.

10:6 there should be delay no longer. This initiates the last plagues of the Day of the Lord (11:15), indicating that the time that the disciples anticipated has come (Matt. 24:3; Acts 1:6). The prayers of the saints will be answered (6:9–11; Matt. 6:10).

10:7 the mystery. A Greek term meaning “to shut” or “to close.” In the NT, a “mystery” is a truth that God concealed but has revealed through Christ. Here the mystery is the final consummation of all things as God destroys sinners and establishes His righteous kingdom on earth. “As He declared.” This mystery, though not fully revealed, was declared to God’s prophets (Amos 3:7).

10:9 “Take and eat it.” This act describes taking in God’s Word. John’s reactions show what every believer’s response to God’s judgment should be…great anticipation of God’s glory and our victory, and at the same time, the bitterness of seeing God’s wrath poured out on those who reject His Son. “your stomach bitter.” As he digests what the seal, trumpet, and bowl judgments hold in store for the sinner, John becomes nauseated. “sweet as honey in your mouth.” But still God’s final victory and vindication are sweet realities to the believer.

10:11 “prophesy again.” A call for John to warn men about the bitter judgment in the seventh trumpet and the 7 bowls. “peoples, nations, tongues, and kings.” See 7:9 note below.

7:9 “a great multitude.” While the tribulation period will be a time of judgment, it will also be a time of unprecedented redemption (ch 7:14; 6:9–11; 20:4; Is. 11:10; Matt. 24:14). “all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues.” These are all of the earth’s people groups that were left behind from the rapture.

III. Christ Is The Fulfillment Of The Law

Sabbath Worship, as well as all of the other requirements of the Law, have fulfillment in Christ (Matthew 5:17-18).

Ascension – Sabbath – Shavuot – Pentecost – June 7-10, 2019

Day of Pentecost HD Gise Ríos Published on Sep 27, 2015 From The Bible Series

I. Introduction. The focus of this article is on the Holy times that are shown in the subject line of this article. They all relate to the plan that God has placed before his chosen people, the Jews, as well as the born again believers in Christ, the Church. Unless otherwise noted, scriptures in this article are taken from the New American Standard Bible (NASB) 1995 edition.

A. The following text book definitions tell of four special times of Christians and Jews. Consider the following timeline of events, as they relate to the days of May 30 through June 10 of this year (2019). The day of the ascension of Christ occurred ten days prior to the Day of Pentecost, and was observed on Ascension Sunday (June 2), which takes place seven days prior to the Day of Pentecost. Sabbath begins on each Friday at sunset, and continues until the following Saturday at sunset. Shavuot begins on this Saturday (June 8) at sunset, and extends through Monday (June 10) at sunset. The Day of Pentecost is observed on Pentecost Sunday, which will take place on this Sunday (June 9).

1. Ascension May 30, 2019 (Midnight To Midnight)
Ascension for the year 2019 is celebrated/ observed on Thursday, May 30. Ascension Day each year is held on a Thursday 39 days after Easter Sunday. This day commemorates Jesus Christs ascension into heaven. More information on Ascension. (Dates, Customs and History for Ascension).
https://www.calendardate.com/ascension_day_2019.htm (The Day of the Ascension of Christ was ten days before the Day of Pentecost. Some churches honor the ascension, “Ascension Sunday,” seven days prior to Pentecost Sunday (The Day Of Pentecost).

2. Sabbath June 7-8, 2019 (Sunset to sunset)
Sabbath is a day set aside for rest and worship. According to the Book of Exodus the Sabbath is a day of rest on the seventh day, commanded by God to be kept as a holy day of rest, as God rested from creation. It is observed differently among the Abrahamic religions and informs a similar occasion in several other practices.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabbath

3. Shavuot June 8–10, 2019 (Sunset to sunset)
The word Shavuot (or Shavuos) means “weeks.” It celebrates the completion of the seven-week Omer counting period between Passover and Shavuot.The Torah was given by G‑d to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai on Shavuot more than 3,300 years ago. Every year on the holiday of Shavuot we renew our acceptance of G‑d’s gift, and G‑d “re-gives” the Torah.
https://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/609663/jewish/What-Is-Shavuot-Shavuos.htm

4. Pentecost June 9, 2019 (Midnight to midnight)
The Christian holy day of Pentecost, which is celebrated on the seventh Sunday after Easter, commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ while they were in Jerusalem celebrating the Feast of Weeks, as described in the Acts of the Apostles. In Christian tradition, this event represents the birth of the early Church.
https://www.bing.com/search?q=the+day+of+pentecost+explained&FORM=QSRE1
https://www.gotquestions.org/day-Pentecost.html(The Day of Pentecost is also known as Pentecost Sunday).

B. Discussion. In order for us to properly understand these four special days of God, we will have to go back many years in history, and many books of biblical teaching.

1. Sabbath. Consider the Holy relationship that exists between God and the Jews. Consider the Holiness of the sabbath, that exists between God and the Jews. As far as the Sabbath relationship, for Christians and God, it is a spiritual observance: “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it Holy. Christians should consider how they can “keep the Sabbath Holy,” in their lives. Consider the Holiness that is foumd in each of the following verses.

a. Exodus 16:23 the sabbath observance, a holy sabbath to the Lord.
b. Exodus 16:25 the sabbath is a sabbath to the Lord;
c. Exodus 16:29 the Lord has given you the sabbath; (a gift from God to the Jews).
d. Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. (a commandment to the Jews).
e. Exodus 20:10 the seventh day is a sabbath of the Lord your God.
f. Exodus 20:11 the Lord blessed the sabbath day and made it holy.
g. Exodus 31:13 But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘You shall surely observe My sabbaths; for this is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you.” (God’s Word to Moses, to be spoken to the Jews).
9. Exodus 31:14 Therefore you are to observe the sabbath, for it is holy to you (Words to Jews).
10. Exodus 31:15 For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a sabbath of complete rest, holy to the Lord.
11. Exodus 31:16 So the sons of Israel shall observe the sabbath, to celebrate the sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant (spoken to Jews).
12. Exodus 35:2 “For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day you shall have a holy day, a sabbath of complete rest to the Lord (spoken to Jews).
13. Leviticus 16:31 It is to be a sabbath of solemn rest for you, that you may humble your souls; it is a permanent statute (spoken to Jews). (I like “that you may humble your souls.”)
14. Leviticus 23:3 ‘For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a sabbath of complete rest, a holy convocation. You shall not do any work; it is a sabbath to the Lord in all your dwellings (spoken to Jews). (I like Holy convocation; the GNT says “gather for worship,” instead of “holy convocation.”)
15. Leviticus 23:32 It is to be a sabbath of complete rest to you, and you shall humble your souls; on the ninth of the month at evening, from evening until evening you shall keep your sabbath.” (spoken to Jews). (notice that each day begins in the evening and ends on the following evening).

2. Pentecost. Shavuot. Harvest. Feast of Weeks.

a. Exodus 23:14–19 All male Jews were required to travel to the temple in Jerusalem for the Feasts of Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, and Tabernacles. (MacArthur Study notes).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+23%3A14-17&version=NASB

b. Leviticus 23:15-17 15 ‘You shall also count for yourselves from the day after the sabbath, from the day when you brought in the sheaf of the wave offering; there shall be seven complete sabbaths. 16 You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh sabbath; then you shall present a new grain offering to the Lord. 17 You shall bring in from your dwelling places two loaves of bread for a wave offering, made of two-tenths of an ephah; they shall be of a fine flour, baked with leaven as first fruits to the Lord. 21 On this same day you shall make a proclamation as well; you are to have a holy convocation. You shall do no laborious work. It is to be a perpetual statute in all your dwelling places throughout your generations.

c. Acts 2:1. When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 2 And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.5 Now there were Jews living in Jerusalem, devout men from every nation under heaven.

d. Acts 1:5; 2:4. The Feast of Pentecost was fulfilled in Christ.

e. 2 Kings 17:1-6. In 722 B.C. the ten northern tribes of Israel were taken captive by the Assyrians and displaced from their land. This dispersal sent those ten tribes into far lands.

f. 2 Kings 24:17-21. In 597-586 B.C. the two southern tribes of Israel were taken captive by the Babylonians and displaced from their land. This dispersal sent those two tribes into far lands.

g. Acts 2:1-5. In 30 A.D. (all dates Ryrie Study Bible)
The Day of Pentecost. Because of Ex 14-19, dispersed Jews went to Jerusalem for the feast of Pentecost. At that time, God chose to pour out His Holy Spirit on those Jews, per the following verses. In this context, “tongues” refers to languages. From the time of the dispersal in 722 B.C., those Jews learned and spoke the languages of the lands where they had been dispersed. So, in Acts, not all Jews in Jerusalem spoke the same language; many had forgotten how to speak Hebrew; verses 4-5 address that reality. It is amazing that the dispersed Jews had the discipline to obey the Mosaic Law to go to Jerusalem for the three required feasts. The miracle of Pentecost was that the Jews in the upper room spoke the individual languages of all of the congregated Jews, from all of the dispersed lands (vs 5), so that they could hear the gospel of “Christ and Him crucified” (Acts 2:36).

h. Leviticus 23:15-22, Deuteronomy 16:9-12, and Acts 2:1 discuss Pentecost. Other verses discuss this Holy event, as follows, and : https://bible.knowing-jesus.com/topics/Feast-Of-Weeks

3. Acts 1:1-11. 30. A.D. The ascension of Christ.

a. After His resurrection, Christ appeared to people 40 days, and preached the gospel (good news) of “the kingdom of heaven” (THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN). Christ told the disciples (men and women) to wait in Jerusalem for the Holy Spirit to fall on them, and empower them. The disciples still wanted to know if the Kingdom of God was going to be restored at this time (no mention of heaven). Christ then gave them their orders, per the great commission of Acts 1:8, to carry His message to the world. Then, Christ ascended upward to heaven into a cloud, and was seen no more. Angels told the disciples that Christ would return to earth in the same manner that He left.

b. The disciples went to an upper room in Jerusalem, where they waited, and prayed for ten days. This particular upper room may have been the same place where Christ observed His last Passover with the disciples. Women accompanied Christ and His disciples as they traveled (Luke 8:1-3), as He preached about THE KINGDOM OF GOD. I can not believe that Christ would have “shut the door” on the women, and prevented them from taking part in the last Passover observance. Women were waiting in the upper room for the Holy Spirit to fall on Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 1:14). The group of 120 followers of Christ stayed in Jerusalem for 10 days, praying; then the Holy Spirit fell (Acts 2:1-6) (50 days after the resurrection of Christ; Ryrie Study Bible note).

c. The result of the Day of Pentecost miracle was that 3,000 Jews came to saving faith in Christ on that same day (Acts 2:41).

II. Conclusion. All of the events of this article have a key sharing ingredient, with that factor being the law. The Sabbath and Shavuot were key elements of the Law. The Day of Pentecost, drew Jews from many lands to Jerusalem, due to the Law. The Day of Christ’s Ascension occurred so that the Holy Spirit could fall on Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost. I can safely say that, as a result of the law, all born again believers in Christ have come to saving faith in Christ; this was due to the discipline that the Jews, from Moses to Christ, showed toward the Law.

III. Reverence – Holiness. At the time of this writing, the earth is rotating on its axis at a speed of 1,000 miles per hour. Some people who read my articles are living where it is darkness, and others are living where it is daylight. Some are awaking from darkness, and seeing the early dawning hours. Some people are enjoying a noon time meal. Others are looking forward to having their evening meal, at about the time that sunset develops, and the Sabbath of Friday afternoon appears. The Sabbath should be “remembered, and kept holy,” for 24 hours until sunset on Saturday evening. Please let me encourage all who read my blog to “Remember the Sabbath, to keep it holy.” The Sabbath, the seventh day of the week, is important, is Holy, and should not be dismissed from the “area of importance” of our mind.

Sabbath Worship, as well as all of the other requirements of the Law, was fulfilled by Christ (Matthew 5:17-18). Believers in Christ are not required to worship on the Sabbath, but there should be an honor and appreciation for the Sabbath. God made the Sabbath; He made the Sabbath Holy. No one can move the Sabbath to another day of the week to meet their desires.

My wish for those whom will be reading this article will be to:

“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy” (Exodus 20:8).

14 – Israel – The Tabernacle In The Desert

We Glorify The Lamb – Terry MacAlmon – Terry MacAlmon Official.
Published on Mar 21, 2015 – Taken from “Pikes Peak Worship Festival”, a live worship DVD by Terry MacAlmon. The DVD was published in 2007.

I. Introduction.

A. In our previous study of the “Tent Of Meeting,” Israel 12 – Yahweh Shammah – The Tent Of Meeting – Exodus 33, we discussed “a certain tent” that Moses would pitch where he would go inside and meet with God. Scripture does not tell of any furnishings that may have been present in this tent, “The Tent Of Meeting.” But in, “The Tabernacle in the desert,” also known as the “Tent of Meeting,” there were furnishings, as well as other things, with each having its own spiritual purpose. In this article, we will discuss “The Tabernacle in the Desert,” and those things that were present in that tabernacle.

B. God commissioned the construction of the tabernacle/sanctuary (Exodus 25:8-9, 1491 B.C.). The Tabernacle in the Desert was completed (Exodus 40:33, 1490 B.C.). The Glory of God was present in this tabernacle.

C. God commissioned King Solomon to build the first temple in Jerusalem (1 Chronicles 28:6, 1015 B.C.). Solomon finished the construction of the temple in Jerusalem (2 Chronicles 5:1, 1004 B.C.). The Glory of God was present in this, “Solomon’s Temple.”

D. After Solomon’s Temple was destroyed in 586 B.C., it was rebuilt by Zerubbabel, finishing it in 515 B.C. However, the Glory of God was not present in Zerubbabel’s temple.

E. King Herod remodeled Zerubbabel’s Temple, but the Glory of God was not present in “Herod’s” temple. Herod’s temple was destroyed in 70 A.D.

F. There will be a temple that will be build during the tribulation, but it will not be one of Godly legitimacy. The Glory of God will not be present in the tribulation temple.

G. It will only be when Christ sets up His Millennial Kingdom that there will be a Godly Temple in Jerusalem. During the time that Christ was in Jerusalem He never entered into the temple’s “Holy of Holies;” the reason is that He “is” the “Holy of Holies!”

H. God will build a temple in Jerusalem that will be present during the future millennium of the Kingdom Age (Ezekiel 37:25). The prophet Ezekiel saw the glory of God in a vision entering the millennial temple (Ezekiel 43:1-7, 574 B.C.), which will make the temple of the Kingdom Age a Godly occupied temple, and very legitimate.

I. It is important to understand that regarding the law, including Temple worship, Christ has fulfilled all of the requirements of the Law, with that fulfillment being finished on the cross at Calvary. It is only through the finished work of Christ on the cross that anyone can have salvation (Matthew 5:17; John 1:29; John 4:19-24; John 19:30).

J. In this series of articles on the dwelling places of God, in our next article we will study Solomon’s Temple, which will be followed by a study of the temple of the Kingdom Age (Millenium). We will not study any temple not having the indwelling Presence of God. We will conclude the dwelling places of God with a study on the indwelling presence of God’s Holy Spirit in the spirit of born again believers in Yeshua Ha’Mashiach.

K. The significance of key Tabernacle items:

1. The Ark of the Covenant (Exodus 26:33) is the seat of God’s gracious presence.
2. The Mercy Seat is a type of Christ, our Propitiation (Exodus 25:16-22). The Mercy Seat was positioned “above” the ark which held the covenant, the “law.”
3. The Table of Bread (Exodus 25:23-30; 26:35). The “Table Bread” is a type of Christ, the Bread of Life.
4. The Lampstand (Exodus 25:31). The Candlestick is a type of Christ, the Light of the World.
5. The Veil (Exodus 26:31-35). The curtain separated the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place.
6. The Altar of Burnt Offering (Exodus 27:1). The Bronze Altar is a type of Christ, our Substitute and Sacrifice.
7. The Bronze Laver (Exodus 30:17-20). The Laver is a type of Christ, our cleansing and regeneration.
8. The Altar of Incense (Exodus 30:1). The Incense Altar is a type of Christ, our Intercessor and Advocate.

II. The following video discusses “The Tabernacle In The Desert.”

III. Description Of The Tabernacle And Its Components.

A. God’s Order To Construct The Tabernacle In The Desert.

1. The Tabernacle To Be Constructed (Ex 25:1-9). (A Holy Place, A Sanctuary). Exodus 25:8-9 New American Standard Bible (NASB).

8 Let them construct a sanctuary for Me, that I may dwell among them. 9 According to all that I am going to show you, as the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all its furniture, just so you shall construct it.

The tent (Ex 26:36). The tent of meeting (Ex 29:42). The tabernacle of the testimony (Num 17:7).

2. The ark and the mercy seat (Ex 25:10-22).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+25%3A10-22&version=NASB

Ex 25:10-16 The ark (not Noah’s ark) that held the tables of the law (or “the testimony” vs 16), a pot of manna, and “Aaron’s rod that budded” (“Numbers 17:5-8,” Hebrews 9:4).
Ex 25:17 A mercy seat (a covering). It was not only the lid for the ark, but also the place where sins were covered, thus the place of propitiation.
Ex 25:22 Ark of testimony. So called because it contained the law (vs 16).

3. The table for the bread .(Exodus 25:23-30).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+25%3A23-30&version=NASB

The table held the “bread of the Presence” and certain utensils (Ex 25:29). “Bread of the Presence means bread laid before God, in His Presence. Each of the 12 tribes was equally important to God, and He was the one who met their needs (John 6:32-35).

4. The Lampstand (Exodus 25:31-40).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+25%3A31-40&version=NASB

The gold lampstand was an upright shaft, from each side of which 3 branches extended. The lampstand provided light for the ministering priests, and typified Christ, the Light of the world.

5. The Curtains (Exodus 26:1-14)
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+26%3A1-14&version=NASB

Ex 26:1-6 Curtains. The inside curtains that covered the wooden framework of the Tabernacle.
Ex 26:7-13 Curtains. These curtains covered the inner linen curtain.
Ex 26:14 Two additional coverings. Some believe that these coverings were used as a wrapper when the Tabernacle was being moved.

6. The Boards (Ex 26:15-30).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+26%3A15-30&version=NASB

The walls of the Tabernacle were apparently not solid, but of a trellis-like construction that allowed the beauty of the linen curtains to be visible from the inside.

7. The Veils (Ex 26:31-37).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+26%3A31-37&version=NASB

Ex 26:31-35 The inner veil separated the Holy Place (which contained the Altar of Incense, the lampstand, and the table for the bread) from the Most Holy Place, or Holy of Holies (which contained the ark and the mercy seat). The veil barred all but the high priest from the Presence of God, but when it was torn in two at the death of Christ (Mark 15:35), access to God was made available to all that come through Him (Heb 10:19-22).
Ex 26:36-37 The outer veil hanging at the eastern end of the Holy Place functioned as a door to the tent.

8. The Bronze Altar (Exodus 27:1-8).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+27%3A1-8&version=NASB

Ex 27:1-8 The “altar” was made of wood covered with bronze. The sacrifices were made on it. “Horns” were used to bind the sacrificial animals to the altar (Ps 118:27). “Basins” were used to catch the blood of the animals.

9. The Court (Ex 27:9-19).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+27%3A9-19&version=NASB

The court of the tabernacle was screened with linen curtains 7.5 feet high to provide privacy for the worshipers inside. The tabernacle itself took up only about 1/15 of this area.

10. The Oil (Ex 27:20-21).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+27%3A20-21&version=NASB

The “oil” obtained from olives that were beaten, rather than crushed, would be of finer quality, burning more brightly and with less smoke.

11. The Priests’ Garments (Ex 28:1-43).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+28%3A1-43&version=NASB

12. The Priests’ Consecration (Ex 29:1-46).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+29%3A1-46&version=NASB

13. The Altar Of Incense (Ex 30:1-10).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+30%3A1-10&version=NASB

The “altar of incense” stood before the curtain that shut off the Most Holy Place, or Holy of Holies. Incense was burned on it, morning and evening, when the priest tended to the lamp. (Ex 30:34-38 describes the composition of the incense).

14. The Atonement Money (Ex 30:11-16).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+30%3A11-16&version=NASB

15. The Laver (Ex 30:17-21).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+30%3A17-21&version=NASB

The “bronze laver” was made from mirrors (Ex 38:8), and stood between the altar of burnt offering and the door of the Tabernacle. The bronze laver was used for the ritual cleansing of the priests.

16. The Anointing Oil (Ex 30:22-33).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+30%3A22-33&version=NASB

The “holy anointing oil” was highly perfumed and was to be used only for the prescribed consecrations of the Tabernacle and its furnishings (vs 26-29). vs 29, The Tabernacle and its furnishings were made holy, i.e., set apart for God’s service. Holiness was transmitted to the priests who touched them. Others who touched the Holy items would die (2 Sam 6:7).

17. The incense (Ex 30:34-38).
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ex+30%3A34-38&version=NASB

Ex 30:35. Salted to assure rapid burning of the incense, and to preserve it until used.

II. The construction of the Tabernacle completed.

Exodus 40:33 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

33 He erected the court all around the tabernacle and the altar, and hung up the veil for the gateway of the court. Thus Moses finished the work.

III. The Tabernacle Filled (indwelt) By The Glory Of The Lord.

Exodus 40:34-35 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

34 Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.

40:34 “the cloud covered…the glory of the Lord filled.” This was the final confirmation for Moses and the people that all the work for setting up God’s dwelling place had been properly done and all the tedious instructions obediently followed. (MacArthur Study Bible note).

35 Moses was not able to enter the tent of meeting because the cloud had settled on it, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.

40:35 The intensity of the Presence of God is evident in that even Moses was not able to enter the Tabernacle. There are other instances of the power of God’s Presence. See 1 Kings 8:10-11; 2 Chr 5:13-14; 2 Chr 7:1-2

Israel 14 – Shabbat – God’s Words To The Jews


Most Beautiful Shabbat Video Ever!!!! Published on Sep 29, 2014 -Shabbat.com Filmed at the Klatzko Family Shabbat home in Monsey, NY.

It is almost 8 PM on the east coast of the United States of America. As I am completing this article that will be published and posted on my blogs, I am very aware that the earth on which we reside, is speeding on its axis with the result being the arrival of Sabbat on each part of our earth on Godly predetermined times of a twenty-four hour day. Therefore, I must use the mindset of “haste-not waste” as I try not to become a Cinderella type of pumpkin.

The earth is rotating on its axis at a speed of 1,000 miles per hour at the equator. There are 24 time zones in the world, with each time zone being 15 degrees in width at the equator. Therefore, twenty-four time zones, being 15 degrees wide (at the equator), gives us a world of 360 degrees width. If the speed of the earth’s rotation would be 10,000 miles an hour, or ten times its current speed, the earth would move so fast that the earth would never warm from the sun’s rays, which would cause everybody on earth to freeze to death. Consider, also, the heating and burning effect of the sun on the people of the earth, if the earth’s rotation would be 100 miles an hour, or one-tenth of its present speed. With this stated perfection of the earth’s rotation, I will ask this question: “Didn’t God do a good job in creating the earth?” Sorry folks, “no big bang!” Explosions result in a scattering effect of disorder. God’s creation of the world, resulted in perfect order, with the Sabbath Day being the capstone of God’s perfection in creation.

Let’s consider a view of God’s creation of earth, as it is shown in the following video from the moon, on Christmas Eve 1968. Also consider the reading of the Bible from their lunar orbit by the U.S. astronauts. All of the Apollo 8 astronauts were members of the U.S. military.


Matthew Tietje Published on Dec 23, 2013

Think about the coming of the Sabbath on each Friday morning that you wake from sleep. With your mind, move throughout your day, with the knowledge that God is in the process of bringing about Holiness, in each of the 24 time zones, one hour apart. I think that you will gain an appreciation for Shabbat that escapes most believers in Christ. Consider the darkness of Thursday night, ending in the dawning of Friday morning. Consider darkness becoming dawn, dawn becoming day, day becoming evening, evening becoming dusk, and sunset, and the Sabbath arriving at the end of the day (Friday), and lasting 24 hours, until sunset on Saturday evening.

Let’s now consider God, the Sabbath, and the Jews, which is the spiritual tie that draws “that three” together (Imagine a triune Godly relationship).

Exodus 16:23-29 (NASB)

The Sabbath Observed

23…tomorrow is a sabbath observance, a holy sabbath to the Lord. 29 …the Lord has given you the sabbath;

Exodus 31:12-18 (NASB)

The Sign Of  The Sabbath

12 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 13“But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘You shall surely observe My sabbaths; for this is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you. 14Therefore you are to observe the sabbath, for it is holy to you….15For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a sabbath of complete rest, holy to the Lord….16So the sons of Israel shall observe the sabbath, to celebrate the sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant.’ 17It is a sign between Me and the sons of Israel forever; for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, but on the seventh day He ceased from labor, and was refreshed.”

Exodus 20:1, 8-11 (NASB)

1 Then God spoke all these words, saying, 8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work,10 but the seventh day is a sabbath of the Lord your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day and made it holy.

Leviticus 23:1-3 (NASB)

Laws Of Religious Festivals

1 The Lord spoke again to Moses, saying, 2 “Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘The Lord’s appointed times which you shall proclaim as holy convocations—My appointed times are these: 3 “For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a sabbath of complete rest, a holy convocation. You shall not do any work; it is a sabbath to the Lord in all your dwellings.

Leviticus 23:23-25 (NASB)

23 Again the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 24 “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘In the seventh month on the first of the month you shall have a rest, a reminder by blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. 25 You shall not do any laborious work, but you shall present an offering by fire to the Lord.’”

Leviticus 25:1-4 (NASB)

The Sabbatic Year And Year Of Jubilee

1 The Lord then spoke to Moses at Mount Sinai, saying, 2 “Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘When you come into the land which I shall give you, then the land shall have a sabbath to the Lord. 3 Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard and gather in its crop, 4 but during the seventh year the land shall have a sabbath rest, a sabbath to the Lord; you shall not sow your field nor prune your vineyard. Deuteronomy is the record of Moses’ words of explanation concerning the law.

Deuteronomy 5:1, 12-14 (NASB)

The Ten Commandments Repeated

1 Then Moses summoned all Israel and said to them:“Hear, O Israel, the statutes and the ordinances which I am speaking today in your hearing, 12 ‘Observe the sabbath day to keep it holy, as the Lord your God commanded you.  13 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 14 but the seventh day is a sabbath of the Lord your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter or your male servant or your female servant or your ox or your donkey or any of your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you, so that your male servant and your female servant may rest as well as you.

Deuteronomy 15:1 (NASB)

The Sabbatic Year

1 At the end of every seven years you shall grant a remission of debts.

Deuteronomy 14:2 (NASB)

2 For you are a holy people to the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth

Israel 12 – Yahweh Shammah – The Tent Of Meeting – Exodus 33

In The Presence Of Jehovah – Terry MacAlmon

Introduction – We now begin a series of discussions on the relationship of God and His chosen people, Israel. We will consider God’s Presence in, “The Tent Of Meeting, The Tabernacle In The Desert, Solomon’s Temple, and the Millennial Temple” (Ezekiel’s Temple is also known as the Millennial Temple). We will begin this study with an examination of the Tent Of Meeting.

Of key significance to this study is the end wording of Ezekiel 48:35.

Ezekiel 48:35 The Message (MSG) 35… “From now on the name of the city will be Yahweh-Shammah:
“God-Is-There.” The city is Jerusalem. The time is that of the thousand-year millennial reign in the Kingdom Age.

In each of the following discussions of: “Tent of meeting, Tabernacle in the desert, Solomon’s Temple, and Ezekiel’s Temple,” the Glory of God will be found to be Present in each structure . Ezekiel’s Temple is, yet future, in the Kingdom Age of the Millennial reign of Christ. For the purposes of born again believers in Christ, we know the truth of 1 Corinthians 6:19: “your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you.”

As born again believers in Christ, we worship God, whose Holy Spirit resides within our spirit. But, why do we worship and praise God? The answer to this question is simple. We worship God because He is worthy of our worship and praise.

Psalm 19 New International Version (NIV)

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Consider “the Glory of God,” as we continue with this article.

Haggai 2:7: “I will fill this temple with glory.” (520 B.C.)

When we consider “the temple,” we must go back to a point in time when there was no Jewish temple; such a time is described in Exodus 33:7 (1491 B.C.). From there, we turn around and go forward as far as we possibly can go. So, hop on board! You’ll enjoy the ride!

The Tent Of Meeting – Yahweh Shammah

Exodus 33:7 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
7 Now Moses used to take the tent and pitch it outside the camp, a good distance from the camp, and he called it the tent of meeting. And everyone who sought the LORD would go out to the tent of meeting which was outside the camp.

Let’s say that you’re an Israelite in 1491 B.C. You have been traveling with the other Jews as you have fled the oppressive Egyptians, and have made a tent encampment in an area that has only dirt, sand and dust on the ground. You don’t know it yet, but your travel will last forty years. On this particular day, your mind and eyes are focused on “the walk of Moses,” as you have become accustomed. Freshly and deeply stored in your mind is the knowledge that God has provided for all of your needs during these recent days. You know that God took you from the oppressive hand of the Egyptians. You saw God opening the Red Sea for you to flee to safer land. You are experiencing intimacy with God through God’s gift to you of the Sabbath and the Law. You are gaining a greater understanding of the creative and sustaining power of God (Elohim, Genesis 1:1). Today, as in previous days, you are being exposed to the intimacy of the Presence of the LORD (Yahweh, Exodus 33:7, 11), as His Glory becomes visible in the pillar of cloud at the tent where God meets with Moses (Exodus 33:10).

Let’s say that it is late in the afternoon, just prior to dusk. The sun is going down, nearing the horizon. Suddenly you, and the other Israelites, go to the door of each of your tents! Why? Moses is walking in between your rows of tents on his way to the tent of meeting. All of you and your neighbors are aware that a time of Holiness is in the making. Moses is no longer a young man; being eighty years of age at this time in his life. He doesn’t move with the quickness or agility that he did as a young man; still, he makes this regular stroll; he may even walk with the aid of a cane or staff. As Moses walks past the doorway of your tent, and continues in the direction of the “Tent,” where he will experience the holiness and glory of God, the sun is staring him in the face. With each step that Moses takes, dust is kicked up behind him and finds a resting place on the lower edge of his robe. You see the evening haze, just above the horizon, with the setting sun casting various colors of red, yellow, brown. You see Moses arriving at the door of the tent; you see him entering the tent, and you know that waiting for him is, “God!” Yes! The Glory of God had also entered the Tent! You know that God and Moses are about to enter into serious conversation. You have never had such an experience of Holiness! You, and all of the others in your encampment … you stand at the doors of your tents, and … you … all of you…”worship”!

The following video will help you to understand that which I have written in the above paragraph. The scriptures are Exodus 33:7-14.

Moses and the Tent of Meeting

Exodus 33:7-11 NASB (1491 B.C.)

The Tent of Meeting 7-11 – Moses, God, Joshua

7 Now Moses used to take the tent and pitch it outside the camp, a good distance from the camp, and he called it the tent of meeting. And everyone who sought the LORD would go out to the tent of meeting which was outside the camp. 8 And it came about, whenever Moses went out to the tent, that all the people would arise and stand, each at the entrance of his tent, and gaze after Moses until he entered the tent. 9 Whenever Moses entered the tent, the pillar of cloud would descend and stand at the entrance of the tent; and the Lord would speak with Moses. 10 When all the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the entrance of the tent, all the people would arise and worship, each at the entrance of his tent. 11 Thus the LORD used to speak to Moses face to face, just as a man speaks to his friend. When Moses returned to the camp, his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, would not depart from the tent.

There are two points of interest that I would like to discuss that pertain to vs 7-11.

First of all, 33:7 has a description of “tent” that needs to be investigated. Different translations say: a tent, the tent, his tent. The KJV states “the tabernacle,” which is far from the context of this passage. The NKJV uses, “his tent.” The NLT uses, “The Tent Of Meeting,” which states its purpose, but not its ownership. “A tent” is used by NIV, CSB, HCSB, KJV2000. “The tent” is used by ESV, NASB/NAS, ISV, NET, ASV. “The tabernacle” is used by KJV and KJV21. The Interlinear Hebrew uses, “his tent.” Strong’s Concordance uses “a tent” to describe the Hebrew (ha·’o·hel). All of the above descriptions of “a tent, the tent, his tent, tabernacle, tent of meeting,” will find acceptance in most conversations. However, I think that we need a more clearly defined description of that structure in which God and Moses met.

In order for me to provide a credible conclusion on the matter of “tent,” I chose a commentary on the Book of Exodus, from The New American Commentary set of individual commentaries. The writer is Dr. Douglas K. Stuart; see his bio below.

Consider the conclusion on the tent that is made by Dr. Stuart: “Starting with the timing of 33:7, Moses employed “a certain tent” (quotation marks mine) as a symbolic substitute for the actual Tent of Meeting, the tabernacle.” My conclusion is that of Dr. Stuart, “a certain tent.”

Another matter of discussion is that of 33:11: “… Moses returned to the camp, his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, would not depart from the tent.”… We will stay with Dr. Stuart in his discussion on the tent of meeting. Joshua’s not leaving is not intended to imply that he lived in it – only that his own tent was nearby so that he could serve as its custodian. Joshua thus lived outside the concentrated Israelite encampment. Joshua was called Moses’ “young aide” not because he was immature but because he was so much younger than Moses, who was eighty at this point. Forty years later, Joshua may himself have been eighty years old (or more) when he led the Israelites in the conquest of Canaan (A reasonable inference from Joshua 13:1, 23:1).

BIO: Douglas K. Stuart (born February 8, 1943) is Professor of Old Testament at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, an interdenominational Evangelical Seminary.[1] He received his B.A. magna cum laude from Harvard College in 1964, spent two years at Yale Divinity School, and in 1971 received his PhD in Near Eastern Languages and Literature from Harvard University, on meter in Hebrew Poetry.

Consider the purpose for a detailed examination of Bible scriptures.

Acts 17:10-11 New American Standard Bible (NASB) Paul at Berea

10 The brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea, and when they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.

My note. The “Jews” at Berea heard Paul’s preaching. Then, they examined the scriptures, which were Old Testament . There was no New Testament at this time (53 A.D. Scofield Study Bible).

My deep interest in 33:7 and 33:11. These two verses told me a lot about that which was going on while the Israelites were desert dwellers. But, I wanted to know more than that which just meets the eye. My mind is of an investigative nature. My twenty-eight years of military service in the radar field, involved operating radar scopes, training others to operate radar scopes, and evaluating trainee radar operators so that they could operate radar scopes while under no supervision. Also, working as a private investigator, and commercial and residential inspector, have given me “an inquiring mind” (you’ve probably heard that one before). My spiritual drive comes from Ephesians 4:12:”

Ephesians 4:12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ;

Israel 11 – A Tent, A Tabernacle, A Temple – Exodus 25

Take Me In Catherine Mullins lyrics

Isaiah 6:1-7 New American Standard Bible (NASB) Isaiah’s Vision

1 In the year of King Uzziah’s death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple. 2 Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called out to another and said,

“Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory.”

4 And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the temple was filling with smoke. 5 Then I said,

“Woe is me, for I am ruined! Because I am a man of unclean lips,
And I live among a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.”

6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs. 7 He touched my mouth with it and said, “Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away and your sin is forgiven.”

In blog post, Israel 10 – Exodus 15-24, we see that God delivered the Israelites from their bondage in Egypt. After God led the Israelites through the Red Sea to safer land, He provided all of their human needs. God also gave the Law to the Jews, to include the Sabbath. Now, we see that God has put His chosen people to work, building a tabernacle.

Exodus 25:1-9 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
Offerings to Build the Tabernacle
1 The Lord spoke to Moses: 2 “Tell the Israelites,”8 “They are to make a sanctuary for Me so that I may dwell among them. 9 You must make it according to all that I show you—the pattern of the tabernacle as well as the pattern of all its furnishings.

God gave directions for the Israelites to build a tabernacle; He also gave precise instructions for the job. In this, and following articles, we will discuss, in detail, each of these structures:

Tent Of Meeting, Tabernacle In The Desert, Solomon’s Temple, Tribulation Temple, Millennium Temple. We will also discuss the reconstructed and renovated Solomon’s Temple.

The following video gives you a quick explanation of the tent of meeting and tabernacle in the desert.

The Ark and the Tabernacle – A Faith Kids Bible Story Video

The phrase “tent of meeting” is used in the Old Testament, specifically in Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers, as the name of a place where God would meet with His people, Israel. Usually, the “tent of meeting” was used as another name for the Tabernacle of Moses. However, before the tabernacle was constructed, God met with Moses in a temporary tent of meeting: “Now Moses used to take a tent and pitch it outside the camp some distance away, calling it the ‘tent of meeting.’ Anyone inquiring of the Lord would go to the tent of meeting outside the camp. . . . As Moses went into the tent, the pillar of cloud would come down and stay at the entrance, while the Lord spoke with Moses” (Exodus 33:7, 9). The fact that Moses set up the tent of meeting outside of the camp underscored that the people had broken fellowship with God at Sinai when they had made the golden calf (see Exodus 33:3). After the tabernacle was built, Moses no longer needed his temporary tent, and the term tent of meeting began to be applied to the tabernacle.(Continued in link)
https://www.gotquestions.org/tent-of-meeting.html

The following information discusses the progression of construction, destruction and reconstruction of “Solomon’s Temple,” where God’s Presence dwelt within “the holy of holies/most holy place.” Information is also provided to show that, in all following temples, the Presence of God will never dwell, except the Millennium Temple. After the destruction of Solomon’s Temple in 586 B.C., the Presence of God was never present in the reconstructed temple of Zerubbabel, or the renovated Herod’s Temple, or will be Present in the yet future Tribulation Temple. There will not be the Presence of God in any temple until the Millennial Temple is built, which will follow the Tribulation. During the time that Christ walked the Earth, He never went into “Holy of Holies,” in the Temple in Jerusalem because, He was/is “the Most Holy/the Holy of Holies.” The following article discusses the details of the temple’s destruction:

Notice, in the following timeline, that the Jews got the tabernacle completed in one year from the date that God told them to build it.

God commissioned the construction of the tabernacle/sanctuary (Exodus 25:8-9, 1491 B.C.).
The tabernacle in the desert was completed (Exodus 40:33, 1490 B.C.).
God commissioned King Solomon to build the first temple in Jerusalem (1 Chronicles 28:6, 1015 B.C.).
Solomon finished the construction of the temple in Jerusalem (2 Chronicles 5:1, 1004 B.C.)
The forces of Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the temple in Jerusalem (2 Chronicles 36:19, 586 B.C.)
The Temple was rebuilt in Jerusalem, being known as Zerubbabel’s Temple (Haggai 1:1-15, 2:1-23; Ezra 6:15, 515 B.C.)
Herod’s Temple, which was a remodeling of Zerubbabel’s temple, was completed in 4 B.C., but was not totally completed until 63 A.D.

https://www.bible-history.com/jewishtemple/
https://www.bible-history.com/jewishtemple/JEWISH_TEMPLEHerods_Temple00000006.htm.
Herod’s Temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D. https://www.preteristarchive.com/Ancient_Revelations/archeology/2001_harvardhouse_scientific-dating.html
The prophecy of the destruction of the temple was made by Christ in Matthew 24:1-2 (30 A.D.) https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=matthew+24%3A1-2&version=HCSB

Consider the Tribulation Temple. The Anti-Christ will most likely authorize the construction of the temple during the first part of the Tribulation, and place it on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem; yet, God is in control of the temple (Revelation 11:1, “the temple of God”). See the following Tribulation temple article. http://www.pre-trib.org/articles/view/the-tribulation-temple

There will be a Temple that will be placed by God in Jerusalem during the Millennium (Ezekiel 37:26), following the Tribulation. The Glory of the Lord had previously been seen by the Jewish prophet Ezekiel, in a vision, with the Glory departing the temple in 594 B.C. (Ezekiel 9:3; 10:4; 10:18-19, 11:22-23). The Glory will not return to any temple, until the future kingdom of Messiah has been established, and the Millennial Temple has been placed there (Ezekiel 43:2–7; 44:4, as was seen by a later vision of Ezekiel in 574 B.C.). There is no scriptural proof of the Glory of God returning to the rebuilt or remodeled temples of Zerubbabel or Herod. Presently, there is no temple in Jerusalem. The Tribulation temple (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, Revelation 11:1-2) will not be one of Godly inhabitance. It will only be when Christ sets up His Millennial Kingdom, that God’s Gory will be present in the Temple in Jerusalem.

It is important to understand that regarding the law, including Temple worship, Christ has fulfilled all of the requirements of the Law, with that fulfillment being finished on the cross at Calvary. It is only through the finished work of Christ on the cross that anybody can have salvation (Matthew 5:17; John 1:29; John 4:19-24; John 19:30).

Matthew 5:17 New International Version (NIV) The Fulfillment of the Law

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

The following video discusses the tribulation temple.
