Patterns are very important to God and they should be to us.  He gives us patterns in scripture so we can apply them to our lives and learn how he wants things done.  God provides patterns for how we should live life.

One of the most pervasive patterns throughout Scripture is the pattern of how to approach God — how to experience His presence in our midst.   This is known as the Temple pattern.

The Temple pattern is derived by studying the pattern God gave to Moses on Mount Sinai.  This was the only pattern God would allow for worshipping Him.  He would dwell in the Holy of Holies in the heart of the Tabernacle only if everything was done exactly according to His pattern.  This included how the Tabernacle was made and set up, what sacrifices were required, how and when to perform those sacrifices.  It included how the priests were to approach Him and every aspect of their service to Him.  In exchange for following His pattern of worship, He would dwell with His people.  He would take care of them.  He would fight their battles. He would provide food and water.  He would be their God and they would be His people.
