Two tablets of stone – Psalm 40:8 “Thy law is within my heart”. Other vessels  Christ’s work – what He did. Ark spoke of His person –> Who He is. Evangelical circles – Much emphasis on His work. Scripture often reverses this order. 8Taberncale #4 Ark Polson

9 Day of atonement – the High Priest First sweet incense, Then the blood Lev 16:12,14 First The perfections of Christ’s person, then His redemptive work. John the Baptist: ‘Behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world’ – John 1:29 Apostle Paul : "I determined not to know anything among you save Jesus Christ (His person) and Him crucified"—His work" (1 Cor. 2:2). John the Apostle : ‘I beheld... and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb (His person) as it had been slain"—His work (Rev. 5:6).

11 4. It’s Materials. Acacia – Shittim wood Typified His humanity. Isaiah 53:2 speaks in the language of this type: "For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground." Grows to any size. A big Acacia tree in Israel. 11Taberncale #4 Ark Polson

12 It can thrive in a very dry soil. It has very sharp long thorns. It gives gum Arabic, used for medical preparations. Incorruptible wood – Septuagint Bible His humanity was uncorrupt 1 John 3:5 In Him was no sin Luke 1:35 Holy thing which shall be born 12Taberncale #4 Ark Polson

13 Grew in dry and thirsty land – constant communion with God. Now crowned with glory – crown of thorns in this world. Pierced side flowed the blood – balm for troubled soul Shittim wood never rotted – sinless humanity Never again mentioned in the Bible. Overlaid with gold – he was all divine. Mystery of godliness – God manifest in flesh. Word became man and dwelt among us. 13Taberncale #4 Ark Polson

14 5. It’s contents. Hebrews 9:4: "The ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron’s rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant." 1 Kings 8:9: "There was nothing in the ark save the two tables of stone.“ During the days of the Tabernacle After it came to rest in the Temple. 3 Articles – God’s provisions in Christ. 14Taberncale #4 Ark Polson

15 Golden Pot of Manna The manna - food of Israelites during wilderness journey. Foreshadowed Christ as the Bread of life, the food of His pilgrim people. In Exodus 16:3 Moses said unto Aaron "take a pot and put an omer full of manna therein and lay it up before the testimony, to be kept; Hebrews 9:4, the Spirit tells us it was "a golden pot.“ Omer was the measure of man Golden pot – man was glorified. Hebrews 9:5 Cherubim of glory. 15Taberncale #4 Ark Polson

16 Aaron’s budded rod Numb 16,17 Revolt against Moses and Aaron God vindicates Aaron. Twelve rods – each tribe – Levi, write Aaron’s. Laid it before the ark. One that blossoms is chosen of God Aaron’s blossomed and yielded almonds. Dead rod was quickened. Resurrection life manifested. To be kept as a token against the rebels. 16Taberncale #4 Ark Polson

17 Two tables of stone Two occasions the Lord gave to Moses. First one Moses dashed seeing the idolatry Ex 32. Fallen man unable to keep the law. Second set of tables of stone are deposited in the ark. 17Taberncale #4 Ark Polson

18 6. It’s journeying. Tabernacle was borne from one camping to another. "And thou shall cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four corners thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of it, and two rings in the other side of it. And thou shall make staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold. And thou shall put these staves into the rings by the sides of the Ark, that the Ark may be borne with them. The staves shall be in the rings of the Ark: they shall not be taken from it" (Ex. 25:12-15). In the Temple the staves were withdrawn 2 Chr 5:9 because the ark had entered its rest. "And thou shall anoint the Tabernacle of the congregation therewith, and the Ark of the Testimony." Acts 10:38: "God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power: who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil." 18Taberncale #4 Ark Polson

19 "And they departed from the mount of the Lord three days’ journey and the Ark of the covenant of the Lord went before them in the three days’ Journey, to search out a resting place for them" (Num. 10:33). The cloud was to guide them Nu 9:18-20. Hobab, Mose’s father in law Num 10:31 – Moses lean on the arm of flesh. Ark was now before them to guide. 19Taberncale #4 Ark Polson

20 "But they presumed to go up unto the hill top: nevertheless the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord and Moses departed not out of the camp" (Num. 14:44). Josh 3: 5 to 17 Crossing the Jordan – Ark went before them. Joshu 6:4-20 Walls of Jericho. 20Taberncale #4 Ark Polson

21 7. It’s coverings Num 4:5,6 "And when the camp sets forward, Aaron shall come, and his sons, and they shall take down the covering veil, and cover the Ark of testimony with it: And shall put thereon the covering of badgers" skins, and shall spread over it a cloth wholly of blue, and shall put in the staves thereof." 21Taberncale #4 Ark Polson

22 Lesson for Life Every feature connected with the ark brings something of Christ before us, that which is for our edification, our instruction, and pleasure. It is our privilege to bear Him in testimony during our sojourn in this world, to manifest the beauties of Jesus as we speak of Him, so that He might be magnified in our lives, and God glorified in His royal priesthood. Do you show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light ? (1 Peter 2: 9). Taberncale #4 Ark Polson22
