A Miserly Miracle in the Wilderness

In the biblical book of Exodus the Israelites that are depicted as fleeing from Egypt were allegedly so needy that they had to be fed with rations provided directly from god—“food” that was no bigger than hoarfrost, which, considering the Lord’s immeasurable abundance, seems a tad stingy (Exodus 16:14).  Nonetheless, these poor creatures were not to lack for all the goods and material necessities to build a tabernacle, an ark, and other wondrous structures while scrounging forty years in the “wilderness.”  What’s more, all these things are claimed to have been of extraordinary beauty and were ornamented with trappings of fabulous wealth.  Were all those treasures stolen from the Egyptians when the Israelites fled their “slavery” there?  If so, why would they lug around tons of such showy embellishments but leave the means of their immediate survival to the grace of god?

Exodus 16:14-16 relates “In time the layer of dew evaporated and here upon the surface of the wilderness there was a fine flaky thing, fine like hoarfrost upon the earth.”  (Italics added.)  “…It is the bread that Jehovah has given for food.” “…Pick up some of it, each one in proportion to his eating.”  The last quoted words, “in proportion to his eating,” hold coded meaning.  In other words, hoarfrost represents the creative energies necessary for each prototype to advance into manifestation with material density.  The means by which these energies were provided is also alluded to in the strange wording upon the surface of the wilderness.  With the alleged diet of “manna” that which is being symbolized is lifeless and non-manifested primal energies from which biological life is made manifest.  The beginning of energy transformation is then allegorized as a state of moisture (dew) from which the elementary particles (symbolized as Israelites) are energized and made mobile and volatile.  The expansion of water components which leaves a “fine flake thing” symbolically allows the escape of spirit from that prototypal condition.

If we are to take the hoarfrost diet literally, it directly taxes rationality.  Only when recognizing that symbolism is the language of “sacred” scriptures can we find rationality, and it is only by understanding those symbols that one can dig out the true meaning that was intentionally hidden there.

If we are to believe the biblical account of the holy tabernacle erected in the wilderness, the Israelites soon honored the giver of life by turning the tabernacle into a virtual slaughterhouse in which beasts and fowl were slain and burned by the thousands. (Exodus 29:10)  Where did all those creatures come from?  Regardless where all that animal life came from in the midst of the desert “wilderness,” if we take the abundant availability of animals for sacrifice literally it reveals that there was never a rational reason for the Israelites to have once been so starving that they had to eat hoarfrost.

To answer the earlier questions regarding the treasures of the tabernacle, yes, the Israelites—symbols of elementary particles involving as pre-physical conditions—did figuratively take with them all the paraphernalia for the lavishness they would be charged to utilize upon their wilderness “tabernacle” and “temple.”  That lavishness represents the unlimited creative energies that are misleadingly symbolized with the land of Egypt.  The tabernacle said to be raised “in the wilderness,” meaning out of the primordial void, is reference to prototypes from which all planetary and biological life-forms develop and evolve.  The excessive ornamental trappings claimed as desired by god are really priest-authors’ shameless indulgence in spiritual extortion, which kept the priests well fed.

The ancient teachings from which these priest-written sacred tales were borrowed taught a greater truth that was purposely misinterpreted in the sacred language rewrites.  The great truth is that within the primordial energy planes everything has its origin as an energy prototype, and it is only when that primal energy interweaves into self-aware consciousness that the prototypal life form becomes a temple of life.  (For the so-called pro-lifers this clarifies that personhood does not commence until self-awareness—that intellectual awareness of I—becomes active: a fertilized egg is not a person; it is only a potential person.  Any muscle twitches occurring in fetal growth are due to energy expansion, not due to self-awareness.)

In the New Testament book of Hebrews 8:5 the Roman author declares that when Moses was about to make the tabernacle in the wilderness he was said to have been admonished by god to  “…make all things according to the pattern shown to thee in the mount.”  This Roman author of Hebrews knew the real meanings hidden within sacred language: that pattern = prototype.  The suggested ritual of service for use in honoring that creative principle in “…the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man” (Hebrews 8:2), is thus said to be drawn upon the “example and shadow” of heavenly (cosmic) things (Hebrews 8:5).  “…See saith he (god), that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount” (not on the mount).  In other words, the process of involving and evolving of creative energies that manifest into energy-matter forms is explained.  The “tabernacle” symbolizes the enshrining of life within each “pattern” that achieves manifested form.

The whole of the tabernacle allegedly built in the “wilderness” (in the primordial energy planes) by Moses (who represents the Life Principle) and the Israelites (which personify the elementary particles out of which life is made manifest) was said to be fourfold in its design; in other words, like the four energy stages through which creative energies develop toward visible manifested form.  The “covered tent” (Hebrews 9:22) regarded as the “Holy Place,” at this point of energy-matter development, represented the intellectual capacity in man, which is embodied with visible form but remains invisible and creative.  The “Holy of Holies,” i.e. the heart and soul of the Ark of the Covenant and Shekinah (visible manifestation of divine presence) represent the presence of creative power that is always within all mortal life.

    Hebrews 9:22 says Heb 9:22 In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.
    Not sure where “covered clothe” came in here?

Thanks for the heads up on this subject.

    The line you mention regarding Hebrews 9:22 is a goof; however, the reference aimed for was to the “tabernacle” mentioned in Hebrews 9:11. The disturbing detail that was thrown in without warning was the use of the strange wording “covered tent” that is substituted for “tabernacle” in a few versions of the Bible used by different groups. This was not explained.

    Such differences in wording seem to suggest that the lord has apparently been inconsistent in how he reveals his meaning to different people. Regarding the imagery used, the structure is meant to symbolize the shelter for the developing energy forms. The important point, therefore, is not in the tent/tabernacle imagery but the blunt, forthright statement in both the OT and NT that the shelter was not made by the hands of man. This clearly indicates that the OT wilderness saga is not about any actual historic happening, and is only an allegory on the process of Creation.

    The priest-authors then purposely obscured this truth (especially in Leviticus) by listing the manmade trappings that the lord allegedly wished used to decorate the priests’ theater of pretended spiritual wisdom.

    If this were true, if the tabernacle were a symbol of creative energy, then how would that be consistend with the context of these verses, especially those from the Pentatuch.

    Please expound on “priest-authors”.
