God tells Moses in Exodus 25:9, 25:40, 26:30 and Acts 7:44 to make the tabernacle according to the pattern he was shown on the mountain. God showed Moses what the tabernacle looked like so he could build it.
Acts 2:30-31 says, "that David being a prophet foresaw that Christ was supposed to sit upon His throne…." So, what did David do? His first decision as king which is found in 1 Chronicles 13, was to bring back God's abiding presence and he did that through setting up a tabernacle on Zion (1 Chronicles 13-16) Amos 9:11 and Acts 15:16 describe how God wants this tabernacle of David, which has fallen down rebuilt. Why does He want it set up? It's for the sake of a harvest of disciples.
Now look at what I've underlined in Isaiah 46:8-11 "Remember this, and show yourselves men; Recall to mind, O you transgressors. 9 Remember the former things of old, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, 10 Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things that are not yet done, Saying, My counsel shall stand, And I will do all My pleasure,' 11 Calling a bird of prey from the east, The man who executes My counsel, from a far country. Indeed I have spoken it; I will also bring it to pass. I have purposed it; I will also do it."
God is looking for some men and women of courage in these days. 2 Chronicles 16:9 says, "For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him…" God is looking for a people with a certain quality of faith. Zechariah 4:9-10 puts this in the context of building God a house. It says, "The hands of Zerubbabel Have laid the foundation of this temple; His hands shall also finish it. Then you will know That the LORD of hosts has sent Me to you. 10 For who has despised the day of small things? For these seven rejoice to see The plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel. They are the eyes of the LORD, Which scan to and fro throughout the whole earth."
God is looking throughout the earth for a people who will build His house. God is looking for a people to do some reverse engineering. What is reverse engineering?
