So as we get ready to go into this, a few minutes worth of foundation that we need to lay so we can get-so- so-eve-so we can make-make sure everybody is on the right page and where we need to be. Now, let's first of all understand what the tabernacle is-what the tabernacle is and where we're starting from. We first have to start with Moses before we can go anywhere else-before I give any scriptures we first have to start with Moses. When God gave Moses what we call the Ten Commandments and information upon Mt. Sinai. At that particular point we are moving forward-in we're moving forward in time now. After Go-after Moses received the law and what transpired was that God, after He got them in the wilderness, He gave them directions and instructions how to build something that is called the Ark of the Covenant. Now the Ark of the Covenant is not a large container, it's only-its-its-its-its two and a half cubits long as well as two and half cubits wide and one and a half cubits deep, and it was nothing but a box-it was a box. Now, on that box it was-on the box it had, it was covered in what is known as shittim wood. Shittim wood is a very precious wood, also means you hear the word arcadia wood. It is a very precious wood, now the key about that wood is-is that it is incorruptible. In other words, it's a very rare wood, it's a very expensive wood, I-If you could buy it today it would be extremely expensive. It comes from Africa, but it is an incorruptible wood, in other words it takes a long time for shittim wood to deteriorate. It's very expensive. Well, God gave directions on how He wanted the Ark of the Covenant built.
