The Tabernacle: Camping with God

Front Cover
Kregel Ministry, 1971 - 160 pages

"The title of this book takes me back to my boyhood days in Angola," writes the author in his foreword, "where as the son of missionary parents I knew what it was to trek and camp for weeks on end. . . . My father would lead family worship at dawn and then conduct a Bible study at dusk. . . . One particular series that I have never forgotten was on the Tabernacle in the wilderness. I can still visualize the scene as we sat, with African carriers, around the campfire outside our tent . . . the 'missionary's tent' served to represent the presence of God--as the Scriptures were unfolded and applied by the Holy Spirit [we had] an experience of camping with God."

This book opens modern readers to the world of the children of Israel, helping them to view the Tabernacle as they did. They will see the "tent" in which God camped with His people, revealing His purpose, power, and glory. They will discover that every detail of the Tabernacle points to Christ and will be reminded of the words of Augustine: "The New is in the Old concealed. The Old is by the New revealed."Connects the Old Testament story to the New TestamentWell-established author with international ministry forumHighlights one of Scripture's most pervasive topicsThis printing revives a highly-referenced and much sought-after resource

Olford stretches to make everything in the Tabernacle a prophecy of things to come in Heaven, and the church. What might have been a good study, was overcome by allegorization. Read full review

User Review  - Dr Charlie Fouche - Christianbook.com

This is THE BEST resource on the study of the Old Testament Tabernacle. Olford is a master expositor/teacher/preacher. I am so glad that this invaluable resource is coming back in print. No minister's library should be without this book! Read full review

Page 149 - For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth. to the purifying of the flesh : How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
Page 101 - What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing ? But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.
Page 66 - Think not that I am come to send peace on earth; I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-inlaw against her mother-in-law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
Page 79 - God, being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus ; whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood...
Page 136 - Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
Page 140 - And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat : and Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness : And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land...
Page 43 - WHEN the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place : And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues, like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them : And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost ; and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Page 53 - Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth ? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
