TentofMeeting

In the back of the Tent of Meeting was a smaller tent.  This smaller tent was divided into the Holy Place and
the Most Holy Place.

The Holy Place was 30 feet by 15 feet.  In the Holy Place was a golden table that holds the bread of the
presence, the golden lamp stand and the altar of incense.

The bread of the presence was twelve loafs of bread that were symbolic of the twelve tribes of Israel.  It also
represents the first fruits of labor that went to the Lord.

The lamp stand had seven branches curved up.  Seven was symbolic of completeness.  The top of the branches
were shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms.  This was symbolic of the first trees to blossom during
the spring time in this area of the world.

The altar of incense was made of wood and overlaid with gold.  In the altar they burned a mixture of spices
and frankincense.  The sweet smell of incense was symbolic of the good and pure things of the faith.  Things like
prayer, praise, charity, etc.  It was also symbolic of God’s people being a sweet smell to God.

Separating the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place was a curtain made of blue, purple and scarlet yarn, and
finely twisted linen.  This curtain was symbolic of the division between sinful man and a Holy God.

Next week we will read about the Most Holy Place and how Gods presence was there.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
