Parsha Vayakhel – And assembled : Sh’mot 35:1-38:20
1st M’lakhim 7:13-26, 40-50, Yechezk’el 45:16-46:18,  2nd Corint. 9:6-11
Daniel ben Ya’acov Israel


This parasha seems to be a repetition of the former one, but goes in much more details.  What is the purpose of the Tabernacle, and later the Temple? We must remind ourselves at what time did יהוה commanded Moshe to build the Mishkahn (Tabernacle)? It is also of importance to notice that when Yehovah give so much details, it is because there are a lot of information of importance embedded in it.  Let us have a short review. The children of Israel (carnal man) came to Mount Sinai to receive the covenant (brit) (Sh’mot 24:15-18) made between יהוה and His people.
 יהוה called Moshe to come up to him and gave him the two tablets of stone written by the finger of Elohim (sh’mot 31:18). In the Mount, יהוה told Moshe to build a tabernacle in order to dwell among them (Sh’mot 25:8). It was the desire from the beginning for Elohim to live among His people. After the sin of the Golden Calf, when Moshe broke the two tablets written with the finger of Elohim, the covenant (brit) was broken and Moshe will have to go back to the Mountain to intercede on behalf of the Children of Israel (carnal man). The second tablets are not the same as the first:
Exo 34:1 and יהוה said to Mosheh, “Cut (you Moshe) two tablets of stone like the first ones, and I shall write on these tablets the Words that were on the first tablets which you broke. Exo 34:27 and יהוה said to Mosheh, “Write these Words, for according to the mouth of these Words I have made a covenant with you and with Yisra’ĕl.” Exo 34:28 and he was there with יהוה forty days and forty nights. He did not eat bread and he did not drink water. And He wrote on the tablets the Words of the covenant, the Ten Words.
The second time יהוה commanded Moshe to cut the tablets of stones himself (verse 1) and to write the Ten Words of the covenant (verse 28). What is the meaning?
That is the meaning: from now on, the children of Israel will have to do the commandments on their own, by work, until the time יהוה will change the heart of the people. We can see this when for the first time יהוה warn Adam (man) that it will be so, even if it’s not obvious in the p’shat (literal):
Gen 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.It was not so intended in the beginning:
Gen 2:15 and YHWH Elohim took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
In Gan Eden Adam (man) was only to dress and keep, no hard labour was there for him, only after disobedience was Adam statute changed.
" for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return". Sha'ul explain this verse saying: "flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of heaven" (1 Corin.15:50). What does this mean? This mean that we need to become spiritual people in order to enter the kingdom of heaven:
1Co 15:48  As is the earthy, so also are those who are earthy; and as is the heavenly, so also are those who are heavenly.
1Co 15:49  And as we have borne the likeness of the earthy, we shall also bear the likeness of the heavenly.
1Co 15:50  And this I say, brothers, that flesh and blood is unable to inherit the reign of Elohim, neither does corruption inherit incorruption.


Another interesting point concerning Moshe action of breaking the two Tablet of the Covenant is that our heart needs to be broken before we been able to receive the Torah in our heart:
Psa 51:17………………a broken and a contrite heart, O Elohim, thou wilt not despise.
Isa 66:2 for all those things hath mine hand made, and those things have been, saith YHWH: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word. Jer 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith YHWH, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Jer 31:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith YHWH: Jer 31:33 but this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith YHWH, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their Elohim, and they shall be my people. Elohim wrote the Ten Commandments on the first tablets and write His Torah (commandments) in our heart!.......As I have say many times in different parasha, the Torah is a progressive revelation unfolded throughout the ages until the fullness of time has come. We have the great privilege to live in these last days, short before the coming back of our Adon (Master) יהושע who will establish יהוה’ Kingdom. This is one of the reasons why we have been enabled to understand more and more, Daniel tells us of this change: Dan 12:4 but thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seals the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased..............
The First tablets were given by faith, but the children of Israel (carnal man) lacked of faith and made their Golden Calf, the sign of lack of faith due to their stubbornness. Idolatry is a sign of stubbornness and wickedness:
1Sa 15:23 “For rebellion is as the sin of divination, and stubbornness is as wickedness and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of יהוה, He also does reject you as sovereign.” ……………
The Torah is a progressive revelation, pointing to Messiah יהושע. This is the mean purpose יהוה had in mind, for he knew that man will sin and will have need of redemption. This is evident because Yochanan who understood the concept tells us that the “lamb” יהושע was slain from the foundation of the world:
Rev 13:8 and all those dwelling on the earth, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the slain Lamb, from the foundation of the world shall worship him. .............; Here again we have the evidence that יהושע existed in the “mind” of Elohim, before the creation, has he was “slain” from the foundation of the world, thus יהושע was with Elohim and came from Elohim!
Now this is what we will see in the Tabernacle construction and how it applies to יהושע and the assembly. Many centuries, most people have read only the P’shat level, not been able to see behind the letter. Even today some folks will tell you that to try to “interpret” behind the p’shat or literal is of Satan! 
The prophet Daniel wrote during Yehudah exile:
Dan 12:4 “But you, Dani’ĕl, hide the words, and seal the book until the time of the end. Many shall diligently search and knowledge (da’at) shall increase.”……………Dan 12:9 and he said, “Go, Dani’ĕl, for the words are hidden and sealed till the time of the end...............
We are now in the last days, even the last hours before the glorious coming of our Master יהושע Messiah to establish יהוה’s Kingdom on earth.  Only with יהושע’s coming and his talmidin (disciples) came the change with the baptism in the Ruach HaQodesh. יהושע opened the understanding of His disciples:
Luk 24:44 and He said to them, “These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all have to be filled that were written in the Torah of Mosheh and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me.” Luk 24:45 Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures,.............
Unfortunately in יהושע’s time people loved more the Temple rather to Love יהוה.
I read one Epistle called “Epistle of Barnabas”. Some say it was Barnabas who was with Shaul (Acts 14:12), others say it was a “Christian”. The text itself seems to have been altered by other scribes to make it feed with “Christian doctrines”. Nevertheless, I found something interesting in the teaching of Vayyiqrah 11 concerning clean animals:Quote from the “Epistle of Barnabas “translation from Charles H. Hoole’s 1885 translation and from Kirsopp Lake’s translation of 1912.This Epistle is said to have been written between 70-150 C.E. As I said it seems that this document has been review by Christians scribes for some purposes. What is interesting is that the writer was well trained in the “sod interpretation” and proof that this is not a “new doctrine”
10:3 He mentioned the swine for this reason: you shall not consort, he means, with men who are like swine, that is to say, when they have plenty, they forget YHWH, but when they are in need, they recognize YHWH, just as the swine when it eats does not know its master, but when it is hungry it cries out, and after receiving food is again silent.  4Neither will you eat the eagle nor the hawk (kind of owl) nor the buzzard nor the crow.” You must not, he means, join yourself or make yourself like that of such men, as do not know how to gain their food by their labor and sweat, but plunder other people’s property in their iniquity, and lay wait for it, though they seem to walk in innocence, and look around to see whom they may plunder in their covetousness, just as these birds alone provide no food for themselves, but sit idle, and seek how they may devour the flesh of others, and become pestilent in their iniquity.....5 “You must not eat,” he says, “The lamprey (fish) nor the polypus (sea food) nor the cuttlefish (octopus).” You must not, he means, consort with or become like such men who are utterly ungodly and who are already condemned to death, just as these fish alone are accursed, and float in the deep water, not swimming like the others but living on the ground at the bottom of the sea. 6 In this manner, he says, You must not eat the hare (rabbit), meaning you must not indulge in unnatural lusts;  7 nor will you eat the hyena, meaning you must not be an adulterer;  8 nor will you eat the weasel, meaning you must not do uncleanness with your mouth concerning food;...9 Moses received three doctrines concerning food and spoke like this of them in the Spirit; but they received them as really referring to food, owing to the lust of their flesh. .................
When we read the Torah, the paper and the ink represent the garment or the “body” of the Torah, the text represents the “soul”, and hidden behind the text, we found the “sod” which is the “Ruach HaQodesh” the Spirit of יהוה revealing deeper truth..Vehemently Christianity claims its own doctrines, embedded in the Constantinien’s belief, a mix of pagan tradition and Hebrew teaching.
Many texts from the Brit Chadasha (N.T) make allusion to the Torah in the “sod” (mystery) revelation. יהושע and his disciples were well trained in the sod interpretation:
Mar 4:11 and He said to them, “To you it has been given to know the secret (mystery/ sod) of the reign of Elohim, but to those who are outside, all are done in parables,  
The Greek word used here is Strong’s # G3466 mustērion moos-tay'-ree-on.  From a derivative of μύω muō (to shut the mouth); a secret or “mystery” (through the idea of silence imposed by initiation into religious rites): - mystery. Compare now with the Hebrew meaning; Psa 25:14 The secret of יהוה is with those who fear Him, And He makes His covenant known to them.
Here we have Strong’s # H5475 sôd sode...From H3245; a session, that is, company of persons (in close deliberation); by implication intimacy, consultation, a secret: - assembly, counsel, inward, secret (counsel). יהושע told his disciple that it was given to them to know and understand the “sod” because they were in the covenant.(Mark 4:11…… to those who are outside, all are done in parables,).  Those outside the covenant where not able to know the secret! How it is with us today, are we in the covenant and so able to see behind the letter?.
The mishkahn (Tabernacle) is a “musterion”, “sod”, secret for many who reject the Torah. I repeat again and again, that the purpose of the Torah is to reveal יהוה’s plan unto us, but also to build our faith: 
Rom 10:17 So then belief (faith) comes by hearing, and hearing by the word (Torah) of Elohim.
We will now go on into the details of the materials used for the Mishkahn, just keep in mind that all these materials are יהוה’s chosen and not man. The design of the Mishkahn is יהוה and not man, the measure of the mishkahn is יהוה and not man. The Master builder under יהוה’s directives is Moshe! With this in mind let us read:
Eph 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of YHWH; Eph 2:20 and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Yehoshua the Messiah himself being the chief corner stone; Eph 2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in YHWH: Eph 2:22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of Elohim through the Spirit.
The Mishkahn (Tabernacle) existed also by necessity, the Children of Israel moved forty years in the wilderness and thus had need of a movable Mishkahn.
Chapter 35.………all the congregation.   Moshe speak now to the collective of the Children of Israel (carnal man). 
Congregation is Strong’s #H5712 עדה edah written ayin, dalet, he. Meaning: ‛êdâh ay-daw'
Feminine of H5707 in the original sense of fixture; a stated assemblage (specifically a concourse, or generally a family or crowd): - assembly, company, congregation, multitude, people, swarm. Compare H5713.
Verses 2-3: Moshe starts with the Shabbat the day of rest for all the children of Israel. The consequence of working during the Shabbat was “death”.
Death: Stong’s #H4191 מוּת muth written, mem, vav, tav, meaning: BDB Definition:1) to die, kill, have one executed  1a) (Qal)  1a1) to die  1a2) to die (as penalty), be put to death  1a3) to die, perish (of a nation)   1a4) to die prematurely (by neglect of wise moral conduct)
1b) (Polel) to kill, put to death, dispatch  1c) (Hiphil) to kill, put to death  1d) (Hophal)  1d1) to be killed, be put to death  1d1a) to die prematurely
We have understood that natural point to the spiritual aspect of our life. How it is today if people reject the Shabbat, many people take it lightly and make joke?  Sha’ul gives us already the answer: 
Eph 2:1 and you were (past) dead in trespasses and sins,1 Eph 2:5 even when we were dead (past) in trespasses, made us alive together with Messiah – by favour you have been saved 1Ti 5:6 but she who is living in luxury is dead while she lives.  .
In these few verses we see that this death is a spiritual one which will be followed later by the second death. Sin is the transgression of the Torah (1st Yochan.3:4).  Today majority of people are “dead” thought still living. The day will come when all men will see that obedience to יהוה is keeping the Torah, through faith in Messiah יהושע. Moshe say that during Shabbat it is not possible to kindle a fire. This question has already brought a lot of controversy among the congregations. Listen why making fire was forbidden:
Exo 16:23 and he said to them, “This is what יהוה has said, ‘Tomorrow is a rest, a Sabbath set-apart to יהוה. That which you bake, bake; and that which you cook, cook. And lay up for yourselves all that is left over, to keep it until morning.’Exo 16:24 and they laid it up till morning, as Mosheh commanded. And it did not stink, and no worm was in it.  …..
There was no refrigerator to keep the food!
Num 15:32 and while the children of Yisra’ĕl were in the wilderness, they found a man gathering sticks on the Sabbath day.  Num 15:35 and יהוה said to Mosheh, “The man shall certainly be put to death, all the congregation stoning him with stones outside the camp.”
The man was gathering sticks to make fire, today we found many folks taking lightly the Shabbat regulations, we have met some in different congregation, travelling with cars during the Shabbat, starting the Shabbath Saturday, and stopping the Shabbat long before sunset. The worse is that this people claim to know the truth, and accuse other to be legalistic. To cook was a woman daily work. She was released from it during Shabbat and could enjoy the day of rest with the all family. During the Millennium reign of Messiah, Shabbat will again rule the all world and people will keep the Shabbat as it is commanded in the Torah:
Isa 66:22 “For as the new heavens and the new earth that I make stand before Me,” declares יהוה, “so your seed and your name shall stand. Isa 66:23 “And it shall be that from New Moon to New Moon, and from Sabbath to Sabbath, all flesh shall come to worship before Me,” declares יהוה. Isa 66:24 “And they shall go forth and look upon the corpses of the men who have transgressed against Me1. For their worm shall not die, and their fire not be quenched. And they shall be repulsive to all flesh!”
If it’s not enough read what the prophet says and understand what is going on today in the all world: Isa 24:5 for the earth has been defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the Torot1, changed2 the law, broken the everlasting covenant3. Footnotes: 1Torot - plural of Torah, teaching. 2Jer. 23:36. 3This is the only reason, according to all Scriptures, why the earth shall be burned in the day of judgment – see also 13:9, 13:11, 26:21, 66:24, Mic. 5:15, Zeph. 1:2-18.
 Isa 24:6 Therefore a curse shall consume the earth, and those who dwell in it be punished. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth shall be burned, and few men shall be left.
Are you still amazed that the world is now going through the process of judgment? If you keep the covenant as Messiah Yehoshua says “if you love me, keep my commandments”, you do not have to worry because he who has called you is able to protect you (read Psalm 91)
Verse 5 ………let him bring a contribution (t’rumah) to יהוה gold and silver, and bronze, and ………..
T’rumah, Strong’s #H8641 תּרוּמה terûmâh ter-oo-maw', ter-oo-maw'  (The second form used in Deu_12:11); from H7311; a present (as offered up), especially in sacrifice or as tribute: - gift, heave offering ([shoulder]), oblation, offered (-ing).
Read what Sha’ul writes concerning “T’rumah”, offering, gift, present, oblation:
Rom 12:1 I call upon you, therefore, brothers, through the compassion of Elohim, to present your bodies a living offering (t’rumah) – set-apart, well-pleasing to Elohim – your reasonable (acceptable) worship.
The “willing heart” was also required concerning the “heave offering”. Sha’ul understood the “sod” of the Torah when admonishing the brethren to give for those who were in need:  2Co 9:6 and this: He who sows sparingly shall also reap sparingly, and he who sows on blessing shall also reap on blessing. 2Co 9:7 Let each one give as he purposes in his heart (read sh’mot 35:5), not of grief or of necessity, for Elohim loves a joyous giver...................
This was not a “new testament doctrine” as many Christian want to have it, but the deep revelation of יהוה’s Torah for His people. The Tabernacle is the first form of יהושע’s assembly (not of Messiah who is revealed in Noach’s Ark: See the Parasha Noach) revealed in the Torah. The Tabernacle was a construction build according to יהוה’s regulations and rules reflecting what the Assembly in Messiah is!
Sha’ul was calling the Qadosh ones (saints) to be part of the assembly and be concerned with other members of the Assembly (Tabernacle). For more understanding read:
Act 11:28 and one of them, named Ḥaḡaḇ, stood up and indicated by the Spirit that there was going to be a great scarcity of food over all the world (the world was the roman empire) – which also took place under Claudius Caesar. Act 11:29 So the taught ones, each according to his ability, decided to send relief to the brothers dwelling in Yehuḏah (Yerushalayim).
Rom 15:26 for it pleased those from Makedonia and Achaia to make some contribution for the poor among the set-apart ones who are in Yerushalayim. 1Co 16:1 and concerning the collections for the set-apart ones, you are to do as I gave orders to the assemblies of Galatia: 1Co 16:2 On the first day of the week (it was forbidden to collect money during Shabbat) let each one of you set aside, storing up whatever he is prospered, so that there are no collections when I come (shabbat). 1Co 16:3 And when I come, whomever you approve by your letters, I shall send to bear your gift to Yerushalayim.
Verses 5-9.we found all what was needed to build the Tabernacle. Brethren all these point to יהושע and the assembly. The material help to understand many things, יהוה, want us to know. How can we proclaim today boldly Adon יהושע to be Messiah, if we are not able to see him in the Torah in a way that no man can destroy by man’s philosophy?  Remember the Torah is the truth (Psalm 119:142) and established forever (Psalm 119:89, Yochanan 17:17).  Gold, silver and brass represent the nature of man which will be transformed through Messiah יהושע from the state of impurity (brass, bronze) to the state of purity and everlasting (gold):  Explanation of the metals:
Gold: Everlasting purity which is the state of construction of the Most Qadosh place in the Mishkahn.
Silver: Price for the redemption paid by יהושע as propitiation for each of us to become part of the “Tabernacle”
Brass: Our state condition of each of us (filled with worldly impurity) when coming to Messiah.
1Pe 1:18 knowing that you were redeemed from your futile way of life (brass) inherited from your fathers, not with what is corruptible, silver or gold, 1Pe 1:19 but with the precious blood of Messiah, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, ...........
Kefa (Peter) say that gold and silver are corruptible, that is what the Children of Israel (carnal man) represent in the Torah in the Remez (hint). There is no contradiction between gold and silver in the Tabernacle and Kefa’s statement as all was pointing to the finality which is Messiah יהושע. Before יהושע came, the all world was in expectation of redemption and all what was done was pointing to him.
Rom 8:19 for the intense longing1 of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of Elohim. Footnote: 1Lit. anxiously looking with outstretched head. Rom 8:20 for the creation was subjected to futility, not from choice, but because of Him (that is יהוה) who subjected it, in anticipation, Rom 8:21 that the creation itself also shall be delivered from the bondage to corruption into the esteemed freedom of the children of Elohim. Rom 8:22 for we know that all the creation groans together, and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. Rom 8:23 and not only so, but even we ourselves who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, we ourselves also groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.
1Co 6:20 for you were bought with a price, therefore esteem (glorify) Elohim in your body and in your spirit,
6-7. and blue, and purple, and scarlet …….
Shittim wood, Strong’s #H7848 שִׁטָּה שִׁטִּים shittah (shit-taw') n-f   means the stick of wood, same as #H7850 the acacia from it scourging
#7850 “sholet” meaning: to pierce, to flog from #H7852 “satam”: to persecute, with this in mind we can read:
Isa 53:4 Truly, He has borne our sicknesses and carried our pains. Yet we reckoned Him stricken, smitten by Elohim, and afflicted. Isa 53:5 but He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our crookednesses. The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. Isa 53:6 We all, like sheep, went astray, each one of us has turned to his own way. And יהוה has laid on Him the crookedness of us all. Isa 53:7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, but He did not open His mouth. He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, but He did not open His mouth.
Blue: The color of the “shomayin” the heavens, pointing to Messiah’s divine appointment.
Purple: The color of the King’s garment (Yochanan 19:1-3)
Scarlet: Color of sin (Yeshayahu 1:18)
Fine linen: color of righteousness (Revelation 19:8)
Goat’s hair: Strong’s #H5795 “aze”, A primitive root; to be stout (literally or figuratively): - harden, impudent, prevail, strengthen (self), be strong. Pointing to Messiah (Revel.5:5)
Stout: trong; lusty; vigorous; robust; sinewy; hence, firm; resolute; dauntless (Everest dictionary)
Ram: Strong’s #H352 “ayil”, strength, pilaster as a strong support, an oak, mighty (man), lintel, post, tree. Thus pointing also to Messiah ………….
badger: strong’s #H8476, “tachash” a clean animal, deer or species of antelope. 
Read Yeshayahu 53:2….and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him….
All beautiful works where inside the “Mishkan”, tabernacle. Ram is also a male sheep.
Read Mattityahu 25:33.  Oil for light and spices for anointing oil, and for incense (prayer of the saints)
We know that the oil represent the anointing of the Ruach HaQodesh.
Read 1st Shomu’el 10:1, 16:13: then Shomu’el took the horn of oil and anointed him….. and the Ruach of יהוה came upon David from that day forward…………
Now we can read יהושע’s parable in Matt 25:1-13, concerning the Ten virgins, the one who had no more oil were the foolish one, who didn’t kept the anointing of the Torah.
Mat 25:1 then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
Mat 25:2 and five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Mat 25:3 they that were foolish (Christianity) took their lamps, and took no oil with them: Mat 25:4 but the wise (Israelites) took oil in their vessels with their lamps. Mat 25:5 while the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. Mat 25:6 and at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom (Messiah יהושע) cometh; go ye out to meet him. Mat 25:7 then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. Mat 25:8 and the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. Mat 25:9 but the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell (false teachers who reject the Torah, Rabies, Pastors, priests….), and buy for yourselves. Mat 25:10 and while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Mat 25:11 afterward came also the other virgins, saying, My master, my master, open to us. Mat 25:12 but he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Mat 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh..........

This parable should be appreciated in our today’s context as we see how stubborn Christian and those following after Judaism following the “Oral Torah” are rejecting the Torah of Moshe, following blind teachers who reject vehemently the Torah, the Word, of Elohim, thus rejecting Messiah יהושע who will say to them in that day: I know you not!
The spices for the sweet incense represent the prayers of the Qadosh ones pleasing to Elohim (Vayyiqra 2:2, 4:7, 16:12, Rev.8:3-4)
Verse 9: read Eph. 6:14…..and having on the breastplate of righteousness…..Remember, it was the High Priest who put the Breast plate during the service in the Holy place, symbolically carrying the twelve tribes on his heart.
10-19. Give us details of what will be done by those having a willing heart, those who love יהוה. All this, point to יהושע and the Assembly the living Temple where יהוה dwells by His Ruach.
Once again the Mishkahn, Tabernacle is a closed place in the wilderness, a microcosm of the world but fully separate from the world.
Are we also living in the world (our wilderness) and separate from the world? The picture of the Mishkahn with the twelve tribes encamped all around is the pictures of the twelve tribes scattered in the four corners of the earth, a place outside the “Kingdom” outside holiness, a mixed world. Only within the curtains of the tabernacle which separate the Children of Israel from the world, could Yehovah’s presence be. In fact before entering the Tabernacle the Children of Israel had to undergo a ritual to be accepted before the priest (Levites) within the court of the Tabernacle……
1Jn 2:15 Do not love the world nor that which is in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.1 Footnote: 1Jm. 4:4.  1Jn 2:16 because all that is in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – is not of the Father but is of the world. ......
Verse 22……both men and women as many as were willing hearted………This verse makes it clear that the Assembly is compounded of men and women who are willing to do the work of the Assembly not by force or constrain.
Verse 26….and all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun goat’s hair……
We see the specific work given by יהוה to the women. The Torah is clear concerning the involvement of women in the Assembly. No place for discrimination, they are fully part of the Assembly, having their own specific position represented here by the spinning of goat’s hair! This instruction seems to be ignored today in Christianity, where women want to do man work, preaching and leading assemblies which is against what the apostle taught
1Co 14:34 Let your women be silent in the assemblies, for they are not allowed to speak, but let them subject themselves, as the Torah also says. 1Ti 2:12 But I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, rather, to be in silence.  1Ti 2:13 because Aḏam was formed first, then Ḥawwah.
1Ti 2:14 and Aḏam was not deceived, but the woman, having been deceived, fell into transgression.
Gen 3:16 To the woman He (Elohim) said, “I greatly increase your sorrow and your conception – bring forth children in pain. And your desire is for your husband, and he does rule over you.”..............
.Verse 30: …..Bezal’el (in the image of El) the son of Uri, the son of Ur, of the tribe of Yehuda…..
Another detail concerning the coming Messiah who will be from the tribe of Yehuda!
Verse 31.and He (יהוה) has filled him (Betzal’el) with the Spirit of wisdom, in understanding and in knowledge……
Bezal’el was called to be the chief builder master of the Mishkan, the Tabernacle, is it not what יהושע was called to do in the spiritual realm with the Assembly?  
Bezal’el was a forerunner, type of Messiah in the divine work. 
Col 1:19 Because in Him all the completeness was well pleased to dwell,
Pro 1:2 For knowing wisdom and discipline, for understanding the words of understanding, Pro 1:3 For receiving the discipline of wisdom, Righteousness, right-ruling, and straightness; Pro 1:4 For giving insight to the simple, Knowledge and discretion to the young.
Eph 1:22 and He (יהוה) put all under His (יהושע) feet, and gave Him (יהושע) to be head over all, to the assembly (you and me), Eph 1:23 which is His body, the completeness of Him (YHVH) who fills all in all.
Exo 35:1-35 and Mosheh assembled all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and said to them, “These are the Words which יהוה has commanded you to do……………..Exo 35:31 and He has filled him with the Spirit of Elohim, in wisdom (chochmah), in understanding (binah), and in knowledge (da’at), and in all work,
Chapter 36.: Another chapter full of mystery in the construction and material used, all completed with numbers pointing to divine instructions. Sha’ul (Paul) says: But as it is written eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which Elohim hath prepared for them that love Elohim, but Elohim has revealed unto us by his Ruach…. 1st Corint 2:9-10.
Verse 3…..and they brought yet unto him free offerings every morning.
Here the word offering is related to the word “qorban” from the word “qarab” Strong’s #H7126 to approach (bring near), draw near, offer, present....
We find this offering in יהושע’s time in Mark when יהושע confronted the Pharisee:
Mar 7:9 and He said to them, “Well do you set aside the command of Elohim, in order to guard your tradition. Mar 7:10 “For Mosheh said, ‘Respect your father and your mother,’ and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’ Mar 7:11 “But you say, ‘If a man says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me, is Qorban (that is, a gift),” ’ Mar 7:12 you no longer let him do any matter at all for his father or his mother, Mar 7:13 nullifying the Word of Elohim through your tradition which you have handed down. And many such traditions you do.”How it is today within Judaism? How it is today, do we bring “Qorban” every morning?
Heb 13:15 Through Him then, let us continually offer up a slaughter offering of praise to Elohim, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His Name.
How it is with believers, are they made willing by the Ruach HaQodesh of Yehovah, to bring up morning sacrifice, to get up before the rising of the sun and praise יהוה Elohim
Psa 113:1 Praise Yah! Praise, O servants of יהוה, Praise the Name of יהוהPsa 113:2 Blessed be the Name of יהוה, Now and forever! Psa 113:3 from the rising of the sun to its going down, The Name of יהוה is praised Psa 100:1 Raise a shout for יהוה, All the earth! (The King James say: Make a joyful noise) Psa 100:2 Serve יהוה with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Psa 100:3 Know that יהוה, He is Elohim; He has made us, and we are His – His people and the sheep of His pasture. Psa 100:4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His Name. Psa 146:1 Praise ye YHWH. Praise YHWH, O my soul.
Psa 146:2 while I live will I praise YHWH: I will sing praises unto my Elohim while I have any being.
Verse 13: and he made fifty hooks of gold and coupled the curtains one unto another with the hooks so it became one tabernacle. We see the fifty hooks pointing to the Torah (number Fifty or Ten x five) couple to one a another with curtains to become one tabernacle that is a picture of believers join together as one body which is the royal assembly of Messiah יהושע. ......The hooks of gold (purity) in number of fifty (5 x 10 = Torah x 10 the sum of all number) are coupled with the curtains “one unto another”, we see how Sha’ul was able to see the spiritual side of the Torah but read: 
Eph 2:21 in whom all the building fitly framed together (couple to one another) groweth unto an holy temple in YHWH: Eph 2:22 in whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of Elohim through the Spirit.
Remember beside representing the sum of all numbers (e.g. 15= 10+5, or 21= 10x2+1, or 5x4=1, or 7x3) “Ten” is also the number which represent what man can achieve on earth to come closer to Elohim. The number “Ten” is marked in the body with the “Ten fingers”, “Ten Toes”, and in our lives with the “Ten Commandments”. Unfortunately Christians today twist the word of Sha’ul to make man’s doctrines. 14. Curtains of goat’s hair!  Are not goats a picture of believers and goat’s hair representing man’s head covering?
eleven curtains, the number for judgment, disorder or location for judgment (Greg Killian). We see that the covering of Goats hair is directly coupled to the number eleven. Wicked kings reigned often eleven years, Yremeyahu 52:1, 1st M’lakhim 6:38, Egypt and the plagues Sh’mot 7:19-21 blood, 8:1-7 frogs, 8:16-17 lice, 9:1-7 pestilence, 9:8-11 boils, 9:22-25 hail, 10:12-15 locust, 10:21-23 darkness, 12:29-30 death of the first born, red sea death 14:24-28. Eleven is also the number 12 representing divine government on earth, minus the number One, for the oneness of Elohim. This represents the imperfection of man without Elohim.
It is also the number Ten where One is added by man and brings imperfection. Martyn Barrow gives another explanation: Goats were of particular importance on the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), the time when the children of Israel came together to be reconciled to God (Leviticus chapter 16). Two goats were selected by lottery, one for sacrifice and the other to be sent out into the wilderness. The blood of the sacrificed goat would be taken into the Holy of Holies by the High Priest, as required by God to forgive the sins of the children of Israel, for "without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness" (Hebrews 9:22). Then the High Priest would lay his hands on the head of the other goat and confess all the sins of the children of Israel before it was sent out into the wilderness, signifying that God would forget all the sins thus confessed. Here is the origin of the 'scapegoat'.  The twofold significance of the goats is therefore that God wants to forgive and to forget. He desires to remove from His people not only the guilt of sin, but also His memory of that sin, so that we may be reconciled to Him…..For God's righteousness to be satisfied, though, one goat without blemish must die and the other goat without blemish must have the sins of Israel lay upon it and be removed outside the camp. All this speaks forward to the crucifixion of יהושע: "He who knew no sin was made sin for us" (II Corinthians 5:21), "He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin" (I John 3:5). Since יהושע is the reality of the two goats for our atonement and reconciliation to God, "we implore you on behalf of Messiah, be reconciled to God" (II Corinthians 5:20)…The goats signify that the Sinless One has been made sin for us so that God can legally forgive us and no longer remember our sins, as it says in the New Covenant: "I will be forgiving of their unrighteousness and their sins I will remember no longer" (Hebrews 8:12)…The covering of Woven Goat's Hair signifies that, if we have entered into the Tabernacle, we are clothed with Messiah as our righteousness: "God made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us so that we in Him might become the righteousness of God" (II Corinthians 5:21).
16. Five curtains by themselves and six curtains by themselves????What can we say apart from the number, five for the Torah and six for man?  18. ….and he made fifty hooks of brass (imperfection) to couple the tent together that it might be one.  When we come together in the body of Messiah been raised as a spiritual Temple, we are all with impurity from our life in the world Egypt), and Messiah make us to become one in Him. 
19…a covering for the tent of rams’ skins, dyed red, and a covering of fine leather above that…..
The ram’ skins dyed red is the nature of man. Red is the colour of the blood which יהושע will pour out to cover us, the assembly with his own blood.  Under the badger skin: Could it be that the ram’s skin dyed red was not to be seen , as the time was not yet revealed for יהושע’s coming?  The badge skin is said to be the skin of a fish eventually dugong a kind of delphin, which would carry the meaning of the Fish among the nations pointing to Messiah among the nations!!!! Delphin are not clean fish as they have no scale!
20-34: Construction of the boards.
Board Strong’s #H7175 queresh written qoph 100, resh 200, shin 300. It is interesting to see that the gematria is 600 (10x10x6), the number 6 been the number of man!  The board here in the construction represent the believers in Messiah, acacia wood been chosen as representing that purity will come through the “scourging” of life, once in Messiah. Acacia is a thorny wood. All equal verse 21, ten cubits, יהושע says: “and all of you are brethren” Matt.23:8. Sha’ul speaks also of the spiritual Temple to the Ephesians in the second chapter. Kefa also in 1st Kefa 2:5
20….he made boards of shittim wood (acacia), standing up......
The king James use the word “upright” for “standing up”:  Job 1:1 There wasH1961 a manH376 in the landH776 of Uz,H5780 whose nameH8034 was Job;H347 and thatH1931 manH376 wasH1961 perfectH8535 and upright,H3477 and one that fearedH3373 God,H430 and eschewedH5493 evil.H4480 H7451Job 1:8 and YHWH saidH559 untoH413 Satan,H7854 Hast thou consideredH7760 H3820 H5921 my servantH5650 Job,H347 thatH3588 there is noneH369 like himH3644 in the earth,H776 a perfectH8535 and an uprightH3477 man,H376 one that fearethH3373 Elohim,H430 and eschewethH5493 evil?H4480 H7451
Psa 7:10 My defenceH4043 is ofH5921 Elohim,H430 which savethH3467 the uprightH3477 in heart.H3820 Psa 18:23 I wasH1961 also uprightH8549 beforeH5973 him, and I kept myselfH8104 from mine iniquity.H4480 H5771 Psa 18:25 WithH5973 the mercifulH2623 thou wilt shew thyself merciful;H2616 withH5973 an uprightH8549 manH1399 thou wilt shew thyself upright;H8552
The boards made of wood represent the frail nature of man which deceases. These boards will be joined together in their socket of silver. The meaning is as follow: the boards represent believers from both houses Yehudah and Ephraim joined together by the price (socket of silver) paid by Yehoshua Messiah.
Silver represents money to buy or for payment to be made . 
Hos 3:2 so I bought her (the prostitute) for myself for fifteen pieces of silver, and one and one-half ḥomers of barley.  
Amo 2:6 Thus said יהוה, “For three transgressions of Yisra’ĕl, and for four, I do not turn it back, because they sell the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of sandalsZec 11:12 and I said to them, “If it is good in your eyes, give me my wages. And if not, refrain.” So they weighed out for my wages thirty pieces of silver. Mat 26:14 Then one of the twelve, called Yehuḏah from Qerioth, went to the chief priests, Mat 26:15 and said, “What would you give me to deliver Him to you?” And they counted out to him thirty pieces of silver.
Silver a metaphor for the price יהושע paid with his own life for us (1st Kefa 1:18-19).
Two boards in one sockets joined together in their socket of silver.
Eze 37:16 “And you, son of man, take a stick for yourself and write on it, ‘For Yehuḏah and for the children of Yisra’ĕl, his companions.’ Then take another stick and write on it, ‘For Yosĕph, the stick of Ephrayim, and for all the house of Yisra’ĕl, his companions.’   Eze 37:17 “Then bring them together for yourself into one stick, and they shall become one in your handEze 37:22 “And I shall make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Yisra’ĕl. And one sovereign shall be sovereign over them all, and let them no longer be two nations, and let them no longer be divided into two reignsEph 2:16 and to completely restore to favour both of them (Yehudah and Ephraim) unto Elohim in one body through the stake, having destroyed the enmity by it.
Both of them …. In one body, that is Yehuda, the House of Yehudah today called Jews and Ephraim called the House of Israel! No place for Christianity¸ for it is written few verses later: Eph 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of YHWH; The Household of יהוה is Ya’acov: Luk 1:33 and he (יהושע) shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. ......
The promise stood already by the mouth of the Prophet Yeshayahu:
Isa 49:5 and now, saith YHWH that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, though Israel (Yehudah and Ephraim) be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of YHWH, and my Elohim shall be my strength. Isa 49:6 and he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant (יהושע) to raise up the tribes (12) of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles (nations), that thou mayest be my salvation* unto the end of the earth. Isa 49:7 Thus saith YHWH, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him (יהושע) whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of YHWH that is faithful, and he Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee (Ya’acov). 
*The word salvation used verse 6 is the Hebrew word Strong’s #3444 ישׁוּעה yshû‛âh
yesh-oo'-aw. -Feminine passive participle of H3467; something saved, that is, (abstractly) deliverance; hence aid, victory, prosperity: - deliverance, health, help (-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare. .....
Here we can make the direct connection with יהושע, for יהוה speaking by the mouth of the prophet says: that thou (ישׁוּעה) mayest be my salvation* unto the end of the earth.  That thou may be my “y’shuah” unto the end of the world.
Can you see every time we say the Name of our Adon (Master) Yeho’shuah we proclaim that salvation comes from יהוה
Verse 34…..and he overlaid the boards (men) with gold!
Isa 60:17 Instead (in the place) of bronze I bring gold, and instead of iron I bring silver, and bronze instead of wood, and iron instead of stones. And I shall make your officers peace, and your magistrates righteousness.   
The nature of mortal man is changed through Messiah יהושע’s atonement work, brass which is a picture of impurity is changed unto gold reflecting perfection which is found in Messiah.  37-38….. a covering for the Tent door of blue and purple and scarlet material and fine woven linen,……….five columns with their hooks. And he overlaid their tops and their rings with gold, but their five sockets were of bronze. 
The tent door is the place where the Priest will enter for the service. This place is marked by the five columns which represent the Torah and its five books, meaning that only those who officiate in the Torah, the Priest can enter this place. It foreshadows the believers who will walk in the Torah following their High Priest יהושע Messiah, and enter the Holy place to serve Elohim.  In this study we can easily understand the importance of the Torah in the believer’s life. The entrance of the Tabernacle, the sockets are made of brass while the top and the rings were of gold. The sockets are direct in the earth which is also in need of redemption (Rom 8:22). The earth will also undergo purification when יהוה brings Judgment.
Rom 8:20 for the creature (original formation) was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Rom 8:21 because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of YHWH. 2Pe 3:10 but the day of YHWH will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
Exo 36:1  “And Betsal’ĕl and Oholiaḇ, and every wise-hearted man in whom יהוה has given wisdom and understanding, to know how to do all work for the service of the set-apart place, shall do according to all that יהוה has commanded.” Exo 36:2 and Mosheh called Betsal’ĕl and Oholiaḇ, and every wise-hearted man in whose heart יה יהוה וה had given wisdom, everyone whose heart lifted him up, to come and do the work. Exo 36:3 and they received from Mosheh all the contribution which the children of Yisra’ĕl had brought for the work of the service of making the set-apart place. But they still brought to him voluntary offerings every morning, Exo 36:4 so all the craftsmen who were doing all the work of the set-apart place came, each from the work he was doing, Exo 36:5 and they spoke to Mosheh, saying, “The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work which יהוה commanded us to do.” Exo 36:6 Then Mosheh commanded and they sent this word throughout the camp, saying, “Let neither man nor woman do any more work for the contribution of the set-apart place.” And the people were withheld from bringing, Exo 36:7 for what they had was enough for all the work to be done, more than enough. Exo 36:8 Then all the wise-hearted ones among them who worked on the Dwelling Place made ten curtains woven of fine linen and blue and purple and scarlet material. They made them with keruḇim, the work of a skilled workman.
Exo 36:9 The length of each curtain was twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits, all the curtains having one measure. Exo 36:10 and he joined five curtains, one to another; and the other five curtains he joined, one to another. Exo 36:11 and he made loops of blue on the edge of the end curtain of one set, the same he did on the edge of the end curtain of the other set. Exo 36:12 Fifty loops he made on one curtain, and fifty loops he made on the edge of the end curtain of the second set; the loops held one curtain to another. Exo 36:13 and he made fifty hooks of gold, and joined the curtains to each other with the hooks, and the Dwelling Place became one. Exo 36:14 and he made curtains of goats’ hair for the tent over the Dwelling Place, he made eleven curtains. Exo 36:15 The length of each curtain was thirty cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits, the eleven curtains having one measure. Exo 36:16 and he joined five curtains by themselves and six curtains by themselves. Exo 36:17 and he made fifty loops on the edge of the end curtain in one set, and fifty loops he made on the edge of the curtain of the second set. Exo 36:18 and he made fifty bronze hooks to join the tent, to be one. Exo 36:19 and he made a covering for the tent of rams’ skins, dyed red, and a covering of fine leather above that. Exo 36:20 and for the Dwelling Place he made boards of acacia wood, standing up. Exo 36:21 The length of each board was ten cubits, and the width of each board a cubit and a half. Exo 36:22 each board had two tenons for binding one to another. So he did to all the boards of the Dwelling Place. Exo 36:23 and he made boards for the Dwelling Place, twenty boards for the south side. Exo 36:24 and he made forty sockets of silver to go under the twenty boards, and two sockets under each of the boards for its two tenons. Exo 36:25 and for the other side of the Dwelling Place, for the north side, he made twenty boards, Exo 36:26 and their forty sockets of silver, two sockets under the one board, and two sockets under the other board. Exo 36:27 and he made six boards for the west side of the Dwelling Place. Exo 36:28 and he made two boards for the two back corners of the Dwelling Place.
Exo 36:29 and they were double beneath, and similarly they were complete to the top by one ring. So he did to both of them for the two corners. Exo 36:30 and there were eight boards, and their silver sockets, sixteen sockets, two sockets under each of the boards. Exo 36:31 and he made bars of acacia wood, five for the boards on one side of the Dwelling Place,
Exo 36:32 and five bars for the boards on the other side of the Dwelling Place, and five bars for the boards of the Dwelling Place at the rear, westward. Exo 36:33 and he made the middle bar to pass through the boards from one end to the other. Exo 36:34 and he overlaid the boards with gold, and their rings he made of gold to be holders for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.
Exo 36:35 and he made a veil of blue and purple and scarlet material, and fine worked linen. It was made with keruḇim, the work of a skilled workman.
Exo 36:36 and he made four columns of acacia wood for it, and overlaid them with gold, with their hooks of gold. And he cast four sockets of silver for them.
Exo 36:37 and he made a covering for the Tent door of blue and purple and scarlet material and fine woven linen, made by a weaver,
Exo 36:38 and its five columns with their hooks. And he overlaid their tops and their rings with gold, but their five sockets were of bronze. …………….Chapter 37. :Bezal’el made the ark: Shittim wood which is acacia. The ark is for the presence of Elohim among the Children of Israel (carnal man). The ark point also to Messiah יהושע, as the ark contains the tablets of commandments, the manna, and the rod that bud, all are metaphor  for the coming Messiah dwelling in the heart of man by the Ruach (Spirit) of Elohim.  The ark is in the inner most place where nobody can enter but the high priest, pointing again to יהושע our high priest who will enter the Tabernacle in heaven for us.  The ark is also a metaphor for the heart where later Elohim will dwell by His Ruach:Eze 36:26 a new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. Eze 36:27 and I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
Compare what יהושע says before his impalement on the stake:....Joh 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth (Ruach HaQodesh), is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come................We know that the truth is the Torah (Psalm 119:142, 151, 160, 89; Yochanan 17:17)The ark is overlaid with gold outside and inside. Elohim dwells in the perfect state of purity; represented here by gold outside and inside.......1Ti 6:16 who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or is able to see, to whom be respect and everlasting might. Amĕn. 1Jn 1:5 And this is the message which we have heard from Him and announce to you, that Elohim is light and in Him is no darkness at all. ......
Once our heart has been cleansed by the blood of Messiah and the acceptance of the Torah, the Ruach of Messiah can take place in us! 
4. Staves of shittim wood (acacia) overlaid with gold, this is a picture of יהושע’s indwelling Ruach in the believers, carried by men  through the four rings, representing the four corners of the earth where one day in the future the children of Israel (carnal man) will be scattered (Yrmeyahu 30:11, Yechezk’el 11:16,17, 20:41). The number two (verse 3) is the number for division, in fact the children of Israel will be separated and scattered in the four corners of the earth.
7…….. two keruḇim of beaten gold………
We know from B’reshit 3:24 that the cherubim were placed at the entrance of Gan Eden (Paradise) to hinder Adam and Eve to go back to this place.  They are made of pure gold as the place is in the Most Qadosh place, the place of the presence of Elohim. They are the guardian of this place.
It is amazing that people today think that יהוה put His Ruach everywhere as it is taught in Christianity!
In the Most Holy place, all instruments are overlaid with pure gold pointing to the transformation of the mortal man nature into the everlasting life. This is the process יהושע will undergo, before entering in the presence of Elohim at his resurrection.  יהושע had man mortal nature which was transformed into immortal at his resurrection. He underwent the same process as we can read: Heb 5:7 who in the days of his flesh, when he (Yehoshua) had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Heb 5:8 though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; Heb 5:9 and being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
Are you not surprise to read that our Master learned obedience through suffering, and that he was needed that he being made perfect? This verses should be preach among Christians! 17-24 …the candle stick (Menorah) of pure gold….יהושע says: I am the light of the world (Yoch. 8:12). The Menorah is made of seven branches, the middle one representing Messiah with three on each side, representing those walking on his side and receives his light. The Menorah represent also Elohim’s nature, as it is made of pure gold and divided into ten parts like the tree of life and its ten sefirot (attributes). The branches are all going out of the candle stick made of ONE piece of gold, because יהוה is ONE!  It was of pure gold of beaten work…….
Isa 53:4 Truly, He has borne our sicknesses and carried our pains. Yet we reckoned Him stricken, smitten by Elohim, and afflicted. Isa 53:5 But He was pierced for our transgressions; He was crushed for our crookednesses.
Out of this Menorah made of beaten gold will come pure light. Why do people think that they can have an easy life and be light unto others? Sha’ul is clear, writing to Timothy he says: 2Ti 3:12 and indeed, all those wishing to live reverently in Messiah יהושע, shall be persecuted …….
Out of the Menorah will come pure light to light the Most Holy place day and night. 25. The altar of Shittim wood (acacia), overlaid with pure gold, verse 26 with a crown of gold round about:
Psa 24:1 The earth belongs to יהוה, and all that fills it – The world and those who dwell in it. ……….
.יהוה is King over all the earth, the crown represent the kingship.
Isa 66:1 thus said יהוה, “The heavens are My throne, and the earth is My footstool…………
Even the nations are ruled according to Elohim’s will:
Psa 22:28 for the kingdom is YHWH's: and he is the governor (ruler) among the nations.   Exo 37:1 and Betsal’ĕl made the ark of acacia wood, two and a half cubits long, and a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high.  Exo 37:2 and he overlaid it with clean gold inside and outside, and made a moulding of gold all around it. Exo 37:3 and he cast four rings of gold for it, for its four feet, two rings on its one side, and two rings on its other side.  Exo 37:4 and he made poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold. Exo 37:5 and he put the poles into the rings at the sides of the ark, to lift the ark. Exo 37:6 and he made a lid of atonement of clean gold, two and a half cubits long and a cubit and a half wide.
Exo 37:7 and he made two keruḇim of beaten gold. He made them from the two ends of the lid of atonement, Exo 37:8 one keruḇ at one end on this side, and the other keruḇ at the other end on that side. He made the keruḇim from the lid of atonement, from the two ends. Exo 37:9 and the keruḇim spread out their wings above, and covered the lid of atonement with their wings, with their faces toward each other, the faces of the keruḇim were turned toward the lid of tonement.
Exo 37:10 and he made the table of acacia wood, two cubits long, and a cubit wide, and a cubit and a half high.
Exo 37:11 and he overlaid it with clean gold, and made a moulding of gold all around it.
Exo 37:12 and he made a rim of a handbreadth all around it, and made a moulding of gold for the rim all around it.
Exo 37:13 and he cast four rings of gold for it, and put the rings on the four corners that were at its four legs. Exo 37:14 The rings were next to the rim, as holders for the poles to lift the table. Exo 37:15 and he made the poles of acacia wood to lift the table, and overlaid them with gold. Exo 37:16 and he made the utensils which were on the table, its dishes, and its cups, and its bowls, and its jars for pouring, of clean gold. Exo 37:17 and he made the lampstand of clean gold. He made the lampstand of beaten work, its base, and its shaft, its cups, its ornamental knobs, and its blossoms were from it. Exo 37:18 and six branches came out of its sides: three branches of the lampstand out of one side, and three branches of the lampstand out of the other side. Exo 37:19 There were three cups like almond flowers on one branch, with ornamental knob and blossom, and three cups like almond flowers on the other branch, a knob and a blossom – so for the six branches coming out of the lampstand. Exo 37:20 and on the lampstand were four cups like almond flowers, its knobs and blossoms, Exo 37:21 and a knob under the first two branches of the same, and a knob under the second two branches of the same, and a knob under the third two branches of the same, for the six branches coming out of it.
Exo 37:22 Their knobs and their branches were of it, all of it was one beaten work of clean gold. Exo 37:23 and he made its seven lamps, and its snuffers, and its trays, of clean gold. Exo 37:24 He made it of a talent of clean gold, and all its utensils. Exo 37:25 and he made the incense altar of acacia wood, a cubit long and a cubit wide, square, and two cubits high. Its horns were of it. Exo 37:26 and he overlaid it with clean gold, its top and its sides all around, and its horns. And he made a moulding for it of gold all around it. Exo 37:27 and he made two rings of gold for it under its moulding, at its two corners on both sides, as holders for the poles with which to lift it. Exo 37:28 and he made the poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold. Exo 37:29 and he made the set-apart anointing oil and the clean incense of sweet spices, according to the work of the perfumer. ........Chapter: 38.We go now in the outer court we go from the divine presence to the set apart place in the tabernacle, where the Children of Israel (carnal man) will bring their sacrifices and offerings. Here the radical change is that all materials and utensils will be overlaid with bronze. No more gold! Bronze represent the imperfection of man’s nature when coming to Elohim. It is Messiah who makes us acceptable to Elohim: 1Co 1:30 and of Him (YHVH) you are in Messiah יהושע, who became for us wisdom from Elohim, righteousness also, and set-apartness and redemption,1Co 2:14 But the natural man does not receive the matters of the Spirit of Elohim, for they are foolishness to him, and he is unable to know them, because they are spiritually discerned. .............
The inner court is the place of purification and sacrifice where all the Children of Israel (carnal man) came to bring sacrifice to the priest.
This is the work which is done through the blood of Messiah .......
Eph 2:13 But now in Messiah יהושע you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah.Col 1:20 and through Him to completely restore to favour all unto Himself, whether on earth or in the heavens, having made peace through the blood of His stake. Heb 9:14 how much more shall the blood of the Messiah, who through the everlasting Spirit offered Himself unblemished to Elohim, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living Elohim?
Heb 9:15 and because of this He is the Mediator of a renewed covenant, so that, death having taken place for redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, those who are called might receive the promise of the everlasting inheritance.
Here we shall remind ourselves that the Tabernacle is a closed separate place. It is fully separate from the world, the curtain where so high that nobody could see inside the court. The tabernacle was the shadow of a set apart life in the “body of Messiah”. The inner court was separated from the outer world with fine linen (verse 16). All those who entered the inner court where Qadosh (saints in Hebrew). We can see that none of the Children of Israel were ready for spiritual life, as all in the inner court was made of wood overlaid with brass and silver, pointing to redemption.  When we come from the world (Spiritual Egypt), יהושע make us acceptable unto Elohim. We enter the inner court and are washed when we accept the Torah (Eph. 5:25), not by work but by faith:
Rom 3:24 being declared right, without paying, by His favour through the redemption which is in Messiah יהושע,  Rom 3:25 whom Elohim set forth as atonement, through belief in His blood, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His tolerance Elohim had passed over the sins that had taken place before,  Rom 3:26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He is righteous and declares righteous the one who has belief in יהושע.
Rom 3:27 Where, then, is the boasting? It is shut out. By what Torah? Of works (Oral Torah of the Pharisee)? No, but by the Torah of belief (Torah of Moshe). Rom 3:28 for we reckon that a man is declared right by belief without works of Torah (Oral Torah of the Pharisee). Rom 3:29 Or is He the Elohim of the Yehuḏim only, and not also of the gentiles? Yea, of the gentiles also, Rom 3:30 since it is one Elohim who shall declare right the circumcised by belief and the uncircumcised through belief. Rom 3:31 Do we then nullify the Torah (of Moshe) through the belief? Let it not be! On the contrary, we establish the Torah (of Moshe).
The work of the Torah is not what Christians believe to follow the Torah and become “legalistic”!
Aviv ben Mordechai from Millenium 7000 wrote a book on Galatian and explain all this problems concerning “work of the Torah” or to be justified by the work of the Torah. If we take all out of the context, we take the risk to make doctrines of man and not to follow the Ruach which Sha’ul followed when writing to the believers in Galatia. At יהושע’s time, the Pharisee, nowadays called ‘Rabbies” had made a lot of “laws” and regulations called “Takanot”, “gezerot”, Ma’asim, Minhagin” and where found under the “Ma’asim HaTorah” work of the Torah which were rules of men and opposite to what יהושע was teaching. If one didn’t follow the rules of the Pharisee he was not accepted in the synagogue.
Mat 15:3 but He answering, said to them, “Why do you also transgress the command of Elohim1 because of your tradition (Minhagin)?
Gal 6:13 for those who are circumcised do not even watch over the Torah (of Moshe) (they follow their own doctrines (Oral Torah), but they wish to have you circumcised so that they might boast in your flesh.
Col 2:8 See to it that no one makes a prey of you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men (Oral Torah), according to the elementary matters of the world,1 and not according to Messiah
Col 2:20 If, then, you died with Messiah from the elementary matters1 of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations (Oral Torah of the Pharisee and regulations of other groups as the Essene):
Col 2:21 Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle” –
Col 2:22 which are all to perish with use – according to the commands and teachings of men?1 Footnote: 1Note: commands and teachings of men, not of Elohim.
Col 2:23 These indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed worship, humiliation and harsh treatment of the body – of no value at all, only for satisfaction of the flesh.
The inner court of the Tabernacle represent the set apartness from the world, before entering the Holy place, as we are called to serve as priest (1st Kefa 2:9). This process starts the first day we accept יהושע in our life. I don’t say “jesus”, for many of us have been among Christians until יהוה in His mercy brought us in the inner court of the spiritual Tabernacle to be set apart from the world, laying down our filthiness by the washing of the word (Torah) to make us acceptable for the higher service in the Holy place.
Exo 38:1 and he made the altar of burnt offering of acacia wood, five cubits long and five cubits wide, square, and three cubits high. Exo 38:2 and he made its horns on its four corners, the horns were of it. And he overlaid it with bronze.
Exo 38:3 and he made all the utensils for the altar: the pots, and the shovels, and the basins, and the forks, and the fire holders. He made all its utensils of bronze. Exo 38:4 and he made a grating for the altar, a bronze network, under its rim, midway from the bottom. Exo 38:5 and he cast four rings for the four corners of the bronze grating, as holders for the poles. Exo 38:6 and he made the poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with bronze. Exo 38:7 and he put the poles into the rings on the sides of the altar, with which to lift it. He made the altar hollow with boards. Exo 38:8 and he made the basin of bronze and its stand of bronze, from the bronze mirrors of the serving women who did service at the door of the Tent of Meeting. Exo 38:9 and he made the courtyard: for the south side the screens of the courtyard were of fine woven linen, one hundred cubits long, Exo 38:10 their twenty columns and their twenty sockets, of bronze. The hooks of the columns and their bands were of silver. Exo 38:11 and for the north side the screens were one hundred cubits long, their twenty columns and their twenty sockets, of bronze. The hooks of the columns and their bands were of silver. Exo 38:12 and for the west side there were screens of fifty cubits, their ten columns and their ten sockets. The hooks of the columns and their bands were of silver. Exo 38:13 and for the east side eastward, fifty cubits: Exo 38:14 fifteen cubits of screens on the one side, with their three columns and their three sockets, Exo 38:15 and fifteen cubits of screens the other side of the courtyard gate, on this side and that side, with their three columns and their three sockets.  Exo 38:16 all the screens of the courtyard all around were of fine woven linen. Exo 38:17 and the sockets for the columns were of bronze, the hooks of the columns and their bands were of silver, and the overlay of their tops was of silver. And all the columns of the courtyard had bands of silver. Exo 38:18 and the covering for the gate of the courtyard was the work of an embroiderer, of blue and purple and scarlet material, and of fine woven linen, and twenty cubits long, and the height along its width was five cubits, corresponding to the screens of the courtyard. Exo 38:19 and the columns were four, and their sockets of bronze four, their hooks were of silver, and the overlay of their tops and their bands was of silver. Exo 38:20 And all the pegs of the Dwelling Place, and of the courtyard all around, were of bronze.
HAFTORAH
The Haftorah recalls the building of the two pillars of brass for the Temple. The pattern is the same as for the Tabernacle. The difference between the Tabernacle and the Temple is that the Tabernacle was to move with the children of Israel in the wilderness, while the Temple was in a fix place chosen by Elohim, Yerushalayim.
13.King Sholomoh chose a man from the tribe of Naphtali filled with Chochmah (wisdom) and understanding (binah). Napthali was the son of Bilhal, Rachel’s maid and means ‘my wrestling”;  The two columns represent the Two Houses; eighteen cubits eight (6x 3=18) we have also (9 for judgment x 2 for separation). The columns are made of brass pointing to imperfection. The Temple construction follows the pattern of the Tabernacle. Material is the same and the number give indication to the nature of the work. The Columns are named “Yaheyin” (he shall establish) and “boaz” (in it is strength). Verse 23: a molten sea made of brass
Verse 25: twelve oxen, three toward each cardinal direction pointing to the twelve tribes who will be scattered in the four corners of the earth. Unfortunately, later the Pharisee and many religious will bring more importance to the Temple than to יהושע, although it was יהוה’ will that they look at Messiah. 1Ki 7:13 And Sovereign Shelomoh sent and brought Ḥiram from Tsor. 1Ki 7:14 He was the son of a widow from the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tsor, a bronze worker. And he was filled with wisdom and understanding and skill in working with all kinds of bronze work. So he came to Sovereign Shelomoh and did all his work. 1Ki 7:15 And he cast two columns of bronze, each one eighteen cubits high, and a line of twelve cubits measured the circumference of each. 1Ki 7:16 And he made two capitals of cast bronze, to put on the tops of the columns – the height of one capital was five cubits, and the height of the other capital was five cubits – 1Ki 7:17 a lattice network, with wreaths of chainwork, for the capitals which were on top of the columns, seven chains for one capital and seven for the other capital. 1Ki 7:18 And he made the columns, and two rows of pomegranates above the network all around to cover the capitals that were on top, and so he did for the other capital.
1Ki 7:19 And the capitals that were on top of the columns in the hall were in the shape of lilies, four cubits.
1Ki 7:20 And there were capitals above also on the two columns, by the bulge which was next to the network. And the pomegranates were two hundred, in rows on each of the capitals all around.  1Ki 7:21 And he set up the columns by the porch of the hĕḵal. And he set up the column on the right and called its name Yaḵin, and he set up the column on the left and called its name Boʽaz. 1Ki 7:22 And on the top of the columns was lily work. Thus the work of the columns was completed. 1Ki 7:23 And he made the Sea of cast metal, ten cubits from one rim to the other, round all about, and five cubits high, and a line of thirty cubits measured around it. 1Ki 7:24 And below its rim were ornaments all around, ten to a cubit, all the way around the Sea. The ornaments were cast in two rows when it was cast. 1Ki 7:25 It stood on twelve oxen, three facing north, and three facing west, and three facing south, and three facing east. And the Sea was set upon them, and all their back parts were inward. 1Ki 7:26 And it was a handbreadth thick, and its rim was shaped like the rim of a cup, like a lily blossom. It held two thousand baths. 1Ki 7:40 And Ḥiram made the pots and the shovels and the bowls. And Ḥiram completed doing all the work that he was to do for Sovereign Shelomoh on the House of יהוה: 1Ki 7:41 the two columns, and the bowl-shaped capitals that were on top of the columns, and the two networks covering the two bowl-shaped capitals which were on top of the columns; 1Ki 7:42 and the four hundred pomegranates for the two networks, two rows of pomegranates for each network to cover the two bowl-shaped capitals that were on top of the columns; 1Ki 7:43 and the ten stands, and the ten basins on the stands; 1Ki 7:44 and the one Sea, and twelve oxen under the Sea; 1Ki 7:45 and the pots, and the shovels, and the bowls. And all these utensils which Ḥiram made for Sovereign Shelomoh for the House of יהוה were of polished bronze. 1Ki 7:46 The sovereign had them cast in clay in the district of Yardĕn between Sukkoth and Tsarethan. 1Ki 7:47 And Shelomoh left all the utensils unweighed, because they were many, nor was the weight of the bronze searched out. 1Ki 7:48 So Shelomoh made all the utensils for the House of יהוה: the altar of gold, and the table of gold on which was the showbread; 1Ki 7:49 and the lampstands of refined gold, five on the right side and five on the left in front of the Speaking Place, with the flowers and the lamps and the snuffers of gold; 1Ki 7:50 and the basins, and the snuffers, and the bowls, and the ladles, and the fire holders of refined gold, and the hinges of gold, both for the doors of the inner house, the Most Set-apart Place, and for the doors of the house of the Hĕḵal. The prophet Yechezk’el speaks of the reconciliation for the House of Israel. We have seen the construction of the tabernacle, now we see the sacrifice for reconciliation for everyone that make a mistake or is foolish (verse 20). The Feasts pointing to the work of Messiah are the center of these sacrifices. 46:1 The gate of the inner court that looks toward the east shall be shut the six working days, but on the Shabbat it shall be open and in the day of the new moon. The east is the place where the moon get up to announce the New Moon! In the Tree of life, the east is the place of “Ketter” the will of Elohim, opposite to “Malchut” the Kingdom on earth. It is from the east that Messiah will come back (Matt 4:27) this is here the “sod”, the mystery, for those who know.
Mat 24:27 “For as the lightning comes from the east and shines to the west, so also shall the coming of the Son of Aḏam be. Psa 103:12 As far as east is from west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
We could say; As far as heavens are far from the earth, so far has he removed our transgression from us!
46:3-6.The sacrifices for Shabbat and new moon are in the number of six (the number of man)!
