70 Elders go up

Then Moses went up with Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, and they saw the God of Israel; and under His feet there appeared to be a pavement of sapphire, as clear as the sky itself.  Yet He did not stretch out His hand against the nobles of the sons of Israel; and they saw God, and they ate and drank.”  Exodus 24:9-11

This happened just after the first Feast of Weeks, the fiftieth day after leaving Egypt.  Is this picturing the completion of the church?  This scripture sounds something like:

“and before the throne there was something like a sea of glass, like crystal; and in the center and around the throne, four living creatures full of eyes in front and behind.”  Revelation 4:6

“And I saw something like a sea of glass mixed with fire, and those who had been victorious over the beast and his image and the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, holding harps of God.”  Revelation 15:2

Interestingly, immediately after this, YHWH instructs the Israelites to construct the tabernacle to offer sacrifices.  This should be the pattern; after the bride is complete, the temple can be set up.

Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit.”  Ephesians 2:20-22
