AFTER THE PATTERN – SO SHALL YE MAKE IT

Exodus 25. 1-9; 1 Chronicles 28. 11-13, 19-20

God’s great desire was to reside among His people and hence His command, ‘let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them’, Exod. 25. 8. The design and construction of that sanctuary was not left to their own imagination. God gave precise instructions about its various components, not only for the large items like the boards and bars, but also for the tiny parts such as the hooks and pins. Moses was under strict instructions to adhere to that divine pattern. This is emphasised in the historical narrative, in the preaching of Stephen, and in the teaching of the writer to the Hebrews, Acts 7. 44; Heb. 8. 5. When it came to the building of the temple centuries later, there was a divine blueprint yet again, 1 Chron. 28.11.

Today, the house of God is not a physical construction like the tabernacle or temple. It is ‘the church of the living God’, 1 Tim. 3. 15. God dwells among His gathered people and it is there that His administration is acknowledged. Is there a pattern for the functioning of a New Testament assembly as there was for tabernacle and temple? There is indeed. Both the Acts of the Apostles and a number of the epistles give clear guidance about assembly order. In doctrine and practice, a distinct pattern has been left and adherence to the divine pattern is as binding today as it was in Moses’ day.

In the so-called Christian world, scant regard has been paid to the pattern, and Christendom has become a cocktail of Judaism, paganism, and Christianity. The number of sects and denominations is legion, so, with all these diverse influences, it will take diligent study of the word of God to arrive at the truth about how to function. Having discovered the pattern, it will take courage to abide by it. As with the tabernacle, it is important to ‘make all things according to the pattern’. Human traditions should never take precedence over the divine pattern. Innovative skills should never disturb the divine pattern. ‘Good ideas’ should never supersede the divine pattern. God’s work done in God’s way can never be improved on, so let us rely on His word alone for all the guidance and instruction that we need.
