Last night was busy as rehearsal for the Mid-America Passion Play set the precedent every night for the next two weeks. Scenes were set and actors practiced their parts. The scene for the Temple and Resurrection tomb started to take shape. Musicians played and sang while the sets for the Wailing Wall and cobblestone streets were constructed. Amidst it all, costumes were fitted to participants and discussion of shoes, makeup as well as how to enter and leave the stage. If this sounds complicated and intense, you have no idea. But it's all good and I believe it will be remembered for years as setting a standard in low-budget production.
While the building of a permanent Temple in Jerusalem was the plan, the temporary one was complex down to the size and nature of the lumber and how to transport it. Generally speaking, if it was daylight, it was time to breakdown the Tabernacle, pack it and move toward Jerusalem a little at a time. That picture is one believers should recognize. We are created and designed for transport to a place prepared for us. I know how men build things. I want to see the city designed and built by God for we tabernacles who are honored to house the Holy Spirit—on His way to be reunited with Jesus in the clouds.
God, I don't doubt your heavenly design but am humbled that it includes me.
