The Setting Up of the Tabernacle

Exodus 40. When the parts of the Tabernacle were all fitted for their places, Moses, a type of Christ, set it up, putting every part in its proper place. Then the cloud, the symbol of God's presence and glory, filled the Tabernacle.

The Lord Jesus Christ, and not men, is adding to the Church daily those who are being saved. Act 2:47. As every member occupies God's appointed place in His house, as a yielded vessel, His Holy Spirit fills the house and manifests His glorious presence.

But, when the Lord, by His Spirit and word has called out and completed the Church, His body, He will place each member in God's appointed place in glory, and His own glorious presence will forever fill it.

 

"0 Christ! We'll spend eternal days
Within the marvelous range,
Of Thy glad presence and shall praise.
Perfection's wondrous change
From glory unto glory, though,
Because Thy love so well we know
'Twill not to us be strange."
"For Thou hast made the attractiveness
And bliss of heaven to be,
That ours the gladness limitless,
Of always seeing Thee!
Surely! For we're Thy very own,
Flesh of Thy flesh, bone of Thy bone;
And Thy delight; e'en we."
