At the Organelle Scale of the Kingdom of God Within, we find ourselves at the Tabernacle in the Wilderness.
The Tabernacle (Mishkan) was the first dwelling place for God in Scripture...
"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth"
The Word was made flesh and became the Tabernacle.
When we studied the Word of God at the Molecular Scale, we saw that the Words...
DNA eventually forms our Temples, that is to say... our Bodies...
1 Corinthians 6:19
"What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?"
Tabernacles and Temples in Scripture, represent Human Bodies.
In fact, when studying the descriptions given to Moses on how to build the Tabernacle in the Wilderness, we find that they truly do describe a Body.
Oh, but not the kind of Body we generally think of when we hear that word.
Scripture is a book of Mysteries Revealed.
The kind of Body Scripture has revealed to us is only the size of a Biological Cell!
A Eukaryote Cell to be exact...
"A eukaryote is any organism whose cells contain a nucleus and other organelles enclosed within membranes"
A Eukaryote Cell is what we Humans start of as, after the Moment of Conception.
This first cell is called a Zygote ("joined" or "yoked") formed by a fertilization event between two gametes...
The Zygote eventually splits and multiplies to form specific types of Cells...
"But the word of God grew and multiplied"
By some estimates, there are approximately 216 different types of Cells in the Human Body such as Nerve Cells, Muscle Cells, Blood Cells, Organ Cells, etc.
6 * 6 * 6 = 216
So who's body does the Tabernacle belong to?
"By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh"
Jesus Christ of course.
Thus, we see that the Messiah was conceived by God and the Israelites in the desert and nurtured as they wandered for forty years.
Note that forty weeks is how long a typical pregnancy is...
"Have I conceived all this people? have I begotten them, that thou shouldest say unto me, Carry them in thy bosom, as a nursing father beareth the sucking child, unto the land which thou swarest unto their fathers?"
Lol. You kinda sorta did there Moses! (Metaphorically speaking of course).
So think about this for a moment. If we use a bit of logic we come to the realization that the Tabernacle is also a picture of Mary's pregnancy!
Because there are so many types of Cells to study, we will use this generic version found on Wikipedia...
...in order to focus on the various components or Organelles.
In the proceeding chapters, we will see how various molecules have combined to become what Biologists call "Organelles".
These Organelles match up precisely with the components of the Tabernacle in the Wilderness...
Here is a diagram of what the Components (often called Furniture) look like...
The Ark of the Covenant represents the Nucleolus. This is where the story of DNA begins.
The Most Holy Place represents the Nucleus and Chromatin, where the Chromosomes are.
The Covering of 23 Skins represents the Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum.
The Veil separating the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place represents the Nuclear Membrane.
The Cherubim sewn onto the Veil represent Chromatin and Chromosomes.
The Parting of the Veil represents Nuclear Pores.
The Sprinkling of Blood represents Ribosomes.
The Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum represents the Brazen Altar.
The Mitochondrion represents the Candlestick, sometimes called the Menorah.
The Table of Shewbread represents the Golgi Apparatus.
The Altar of Incense represents Vesicles.
The Brazen Laver represents Cytoplasm.
The Twin Corner Pillars (on West Wall) represent Centrosomes.
The Various Frames, Bars, Ropes, etc. represent the Cytoskeleton.
The Food Offerings represent Vacuoles.
The Pans, Shovels, Waste, etc. represent Lysosomes.
The Courtyard Fence represents the Outer Cell Membrane.
Again, we will cover these in more detail as we go along.
