Why 12 Steps?

The Tabernacle of God for today.

The Tabernacle of God of yesterday and today.
The old covenant and the new covenant the Old Testament and the New Testament. The old salvation plan and the new salvation plan.
With this study on the Tabernacle of God and later the Temple of God God gave clear instructions to the exact plan of the Tabernacle to Moses and Aaron and later to Israel and Solomon in the construction of the Temple of God in Jerusalem.

We are going to look at the outlay via the plans for the original Tabernacle and the meaning of every item in the tabernacle. We will find the reason for every item and step and then we will form the new salvation plan according to the Old Plan.
This study is a mirror image of God’s revelations to me.

The 12 Steps to Heaven “Living with Eternity on my mind”
The original tabernacle was a large tent with an opening on the one side and within this tent a smaller tent divided in two sections with a curtain.
If you were outside of this outer tent, you were without the presence of God in your life. And you had to enter this main tent area to bring your sacrifice as sin repentance.
In today’s terms you were living in a sinful World, without God in your live.
Exodus 38 v 9-20
Ex. 38:9 For the Tent of the LORD’s presence he made the enclosure out of fine linen curtains. On the south side the curtains were 50 yards long,
10 supported by twenty bronze posts in twenty bronze bases, with hooks and rods made of silver.
11 The enclosure was the same on the north side.
12 on the west side there were curtains 25 yards long, with ten posts and ten bases and with hooks and rods made of silver.
13 on the east side, where the entrance was, the enclosure was also 25 yards wide.
14 on each side of the entrance there were 7 1/2 yards of curtains, with three posts and three bases.

Step 1:
Admitting you are a sinner, without God in your life, Living in sin, in a sinful World.
As you enter the main tent that when you are turning from sin and moving towards God’s presence. Exodus 38 v 1-7
Ex. 38:1 for burning offerings, he made an altar out of acacia wood. It was square, 7 1/2 feet long and 7 1/2 feet wide, and it was 4 1/2 feet high.
2 He made the projections at the top of the four corners, so that they
formed one piece with the altar. He covered it all with bronze.
3 He also made all the equipment for the altar: the pans, the shovels, the bowls, the hooks, and the fire pans. All this equipment was made of bronze.
4 He made a bronze grating and put it under the rim of the altar, so that it reached halfway up the altar.
5 He made four carrying rings and put them on the four corners.
6 He made carrying poles of acacia wood, covered them with bronze,
7 and put them in the rings on each side of the altar. The altar was made of boards and was hollow.

Step 2:
Turning away from sin, and moving towards God for salvation.
On the left as you enter this main tent area was the place of sacrifice. The place where your sacrifice was prepared – if a lamb, the lamb will be slathered over here. This was the place of blood and change. Exodus 38 v 8
Ex. 38:8 He made the bronze basin and its bronze base out of the mirrors belonging to the women who served at the entrance of the Tent of the LORD’s presence.

Step 3:
Accepting Jesus Christ as your personal savior – The blood of Jesus (The Lamb of God) that was shed for our sin on Golgotha hill +-2020 years ago and Jesus died on the old rugged cross for our sins.
As you prepared your sacrifice, you needed to move to the fire altar, and stand in faith: that God will accept your humble sacrifice as payment for your past sin.

Step 4:
Have Faith in God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit (The Trinity) to believe in forgiveness and acceptance.
Now you place your sacrifice on the fire altar and see the flames of the altar burning your sacrifice and the smoke of your sacrifice drawing up to God for approval.

Step 5:
Giving and receiving forgiveness. Giving and asking forgiveness to other people and receiving forgiveness from God.
See the Chapter: the fire altar for today.
After your sacrifice was done, you then move to the Copper wash basin to wash and rinse your blood stained hands,

Step 6:
The Baptism of Water, washed clean by the Blood of Jesus and now receiving your Born-again status. Exodus 38 v 8
Now you move past the Copper basin and go and stand in front of the Holy tent. The Holy section of the Tabernacle and later this part of the temple was only available for the Priest that work in the Temple and not for the common man. The normal man could only stand a look as the Temple Priest went to sacrifice to God. At this point they had to move back and leave the main tent aria.
But when Jesus died on the cross this Holy of Holies section was opened to us in the Spirit.

Step 7:
Studying the word of God (The Bible) and reading the promises of God, learning more about the Trinity as the Priest of Old had the knowledge now learning more about your future life with the trinity.
Note: that this is where a vast majority of Christians get stuck on there spiritual journey to Heaven. Just as in the Old Testament. Most of the people turned back at this point.
To accept Jesus as your Savior, you become co-inheritor of the Holy Section. And receive your Priesthood to enter the next place in the tabernacle. The Holy Section of the tent in front of you.
As you enter this tent, the first item you will see on your right is the Table of Bread and wine sacrifice; on the far left hand side you will find the Golden lamp stands; and in front of the curtain the Incense altar.

Step 8:
The table of Bread and Wine- the Passover meal. At this point it’s called the Forgiveness, Healing and Deliverance meal. Exodus 37 v 10-16
Ex. 37:10 He made the table out of acacia wood, 36 inches long, 18 inches wide, and 27 inches high.
11 He covered it with pure gold and put a gold border around it.
12 He made a rim 3 inches wide around it and put a gold border around the rim.
13 He made four carrying rings of gold for it and put them at the four
14 The rings to hold the poles for carrying the table were placed near the rim.
15 He made the poles of acacia wood and covered them with gold.
16 He made the dishes of pure gold for the table: the plates, the cups, the jars, and the bowls to be used for the wine offering.
The Golden lamp stands: Building faith in your live – 7 stages of Faith. Exodus 37 v 17-24
The incense altar = Prayer, Praise and worship. Exodus 37 v 25-29
Ex. 37:25 He made an altar out of acacia wood, for burning incense. It was square, 18 inches long and 18 inches wide, and it was 36 inches high. Its projections at the four corners formed one piece with it.
26 He covered its top, all four sides, and its projections with pure gold and put a gold border around it.
27 He made two gold carrying rings for it and attached them below the border on the two sides, to hold the poles with which it was to be carried.
28 He made the poles of acacia wood and covered them with gold.
29 He also made the sacred anointing oil and the pure sweet-smelling
incense, mixed like perfume.

At this point is where another large percentage of Christians stagnates. Or get stuck on their way to Heaven. Some even leave the aria and move out of the main tent back into the sinful World.
And only a small percentage makes it back to this point to continue.
And actually make it to

Step 9:

Only when you are without any trace of sin and un-forgiveness you will receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
After the incense altar you will see the Main Curtain, and behind the curtain the Holy of Holy’s. Where the Ark of God was kept = the Presence of the Almighty God.
Previously only the High Priest was allowed to enter this Holy of Holy’s section and only once a year to sprinkle the Blood of the sacrifice onto the Ark of God. And even then he had to keep his eyes closed. For if he opened it or touched the Ark of God. He will die instantly.
But now this aria is open to us, and the process in getting here is called the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. When Jesus died on the cross, God tore this curtain from the top to the bottom opening it to the one’s following these steps.
Step 9: The Baptism of the Holy Spirit. See the revelation book:
”Not just a Spirit”
After you received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and you have now entered the Holy of Holy’s, you will see the Ark of God. This represented the Glory and presence of the God Almighty.

Step 10:
Accepting your Discipleship from Jesus according to Matt 28 v 19.
Mat 28:18 Jesus drew near and said to them, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.
19 Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
20 and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age.”

Jesus gave His disciples the orders to go and wait on the Baptism of the Holy Spirit – To wait on the Comforter. As per Act’s chapter 2
After that He ordered them. As per Matt 28 v 19
After you accepted this command from Jesus, you now can go and stand in front of the Ark of God. And look at the Glory of Heaven. But you have to die (the 1st Death) to see the full Glory of God = The Eternal Life. Or the Eternal punishment!
You now have to be approved to enter the main City of the Kingdom of God called Heaven, Paradise or the Garden of Eden.

Step 11:
Receive the Mark of God = The Seal of God being sealed for Eternity, getting approval from the Holy Spirit to enter Heaven.
See next revelation Book “Are you Heaven ready”.
Then the Ark of God (Eternal Life) Exodus 37 v 1-9
Ex. 37:1 Bezalel made the Covenant Box out of acacia wood, 45 inches long, 27 inches wide, and 27 inches high.
2 He covered it with pure gold inside and out and put a gold border all around it.
3 He made four carrying rings of gold for it and attached them to its four feet, with two rings on each side.
4 He made carrying poles of acacia wood, covered them with gold,
5 and put them through the rings on each side of the Box.
6 He made a lid of pure gold, 45 inches long and 27 inches wide.
7 He made two winged creatures of hammered gold,
8 one for each end of the lid. He made them so that they formed one piece with the lid.
9 The winged creatures faced each other across the lid, and their
outspread wings covered it.

Step 12:
Receiving and entering eternal life after the Great White Throne Judgment.
We see according to the Plan of the Tabernacle in the Old Testament. That this is a step to step mirror image of the New Testament – New Salvation plan given to us for today and the future.
We need to follow this step, by step to one day enter Heaven.
