Holy Tent (2)

In our Bible verses, God begins to tell Moses how to build the Holy Tent. The Holy Tent was made from very expensive materials — gold, silver, bronze, special woods and fine cloths. Today the materials used in building the Holy Tent would cost over one million dollars!
How did the Israelites gather the materials? Verse 2 says that the people gave willingly. In fact, the people gave so much that later Moses had to tell them to stop giving (Exodus 35:22-36:5)!
The Holy Tent and its courtyard were in the center of where the Israelites camped. The twelve tribes of Israel camped around this courtyard each time they stopped. Inside the courtyard was a structure that was 45 feet by 15 feet. This was divided into the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place. Soon we will talk about the furnishings in these places.
God’s plan for the Holy Tent was perfect. God has a plan for your life, too. Give your life to Him today.
