Valtiroty Shilo's Tabernacle

AboutUs

OUR NAME
Valtiroty – Shiloh’s Tabernacle: Spiritual, Educational, and Recreational Park, L.L.C. ”Valtiroty” comes from the names of the three children of the fonder of the project. Val, Tyr, Oty are the first three letters of their names. Each name was uniquely created to express family ties or hopes of the parents for their children, one of them meaning “She will see God.” “Shiloh,” as expected, has been chosen due to its theological and historical significance, because it was the prophetic name for Messiah and the place where the Tabernacle stood for hundreds of years. The rest is self explanatory.

OUR PURPOSE
The purpose of this project is to create a self supporting and self sustained ministry, to be a light at the crossroads for the local as well sojourner.
 
HOW DID THIS PROJECT COME INTO BEING?
Valtiroty is the product of more than ten years of thought, creation, collection of materials, and financial built up. It was first intended to be a spiritual park, but when the financial magnitude of such a project was realized it was decided to go at a much lesser scale, the present form being much more attainable. This is a family project, since part of the necessary finances were provided, in the form of interest-free loans, by parents and brothers of the founder.
WHO ARE THOSE INVOLVED IN THE PROJECT?
The project started with the members of the immediate family. However, in the future, any person who is interested in helping out in this work may be welcome.
 
FLAG AND LOGO SYMBOLISM
The story of the human race is part of a greater picture of the Great Controversy between God and Satan. God’s character is summed up in two words – mercy and justice, and these two define His love – His being, existence, government, and kingdom, that is. At human level this is expressed in the Ten Commandments, the Moral Law, which presents God as a merciful Savior and just Lord. Every teaching (doctrine) that claim to be based on God’s word must logically harmonize with these two aspects of the divine character, if not must be rendered as false.
 
The Great Controversy began in heaven when Lucifer (Satan), the highest positioned creature (angel) in the Universe, challenged God’s character. He accused the Creator (His Law) and challenged His wise government, the very existence of God and the Universe. He wanted the impossible, to be God. He was allowed to take his case to all the created beings in the Universe, and all, but man, rejected him and refused to grant him entry “visa” to their world. When man disobeyed God and became ally with Satan, the devil saw in this his chance to corner and defeat God. God’s character dictated that He as a merciful Father had to do something in order to save His children, but at the same time had to uphold the justice of the Universe and pay the penalty of sin by Himself in the person of His Messiah (Christ). For this reason the Savior had to come in this world like one of us and battle the enemy here, as a human, defeat him through a victorious and sinless life, and ultimately use that sinless life to pay ransom for the fallen man. This course of action, being the only one demanded by God’s character, was well known to Satan, who saw in Christ’s incarnation a possible weakness that he could explore and defeat God by making Christ the Savior fall. Christ had to stand fast in order to vindicate God’s character, avoid plunging the Universe into a chaos, and bring man back into the family of God. It was a risky job for God, but His love for the fallen man made that course of action a must.

It is this story of the Great Controversy, with all its details, that God had to make clear to the humans. Everything in the Holy Bible has something to do with it, but the best visual illustration the Lord used to teach it to His people was the Tabernacle with its services. There, every aspect of the mission of Messiah was told, explained, and illustrated. Christ was to be both the High Priest and the sacrificial Lamb. The three physical parts of the Tabernacle with its three main distinctive activities were all pointing to three distinctive physical and activity phases in the work of Christ.

  1. The court yard of the Tabernacle, with the altar of sacrifices and the laver, represented the earthly ministry of Christ the Savior who came to live a clean life and sacrifice Himself. Micah foretold the place of Christ’s birth: “But you, Bethlehem Ephrata, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come forth one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.” (Micah 5:2).Isaiah announced the purpose of God’s Anointed death: “Surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows… But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities, the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him….. the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” (Is.53:4-5). The date of this event was clearly foretold by Daniel: “From the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince comes, there will be seven seventh… 62 seventh… and one seventh… In the middle of the seven he will put an end to sacrifice.” (Dan.9:25-27)
  2. The Holy Place in the Tabernacle, with its menorah (candlestick), showbread, and the altar of incense represented Christ’s intercession on behalf of man after His ascension to heaven. “We have such a High Priest who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, and who serves in the sanctuary, the true tabernacle, set up by the Lord, not by man.” (Heb.8:1.2)
  3. The Most Holy Place, where the High Priest entered only once a year in the Day of Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), the most important of all the tabernacle services, represents the last phase of Christ’s ministry. He enters the Most Holy Place in the heavenly Sanctuary and begins an investigative judgment, removing the sins of His people for ever, and making His return possible. In the old days this was announced ten days in advance with the blowing of the shophars (horns). It is this phase of Christ’s ministry, the one that in the Bible is presented as the most important, that has completely escaped the attention of the believers today, but not to God. The date of the beginning of this last phase of the ministry of Messiah is announced by these words: “It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings (years), then the sanctuary will be cleansed.” (Dan.8:14). Setting everything in the historical context of events, John sees God sending His special messengers to announce the beginning of the judgment, cleansing, announced by Daniel: “And I saw an angel flying in the midair, and had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth – to every nation, tribe, language and people. He said in a loud voice: ‘Fear God and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come. Worship Him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of the waters. A second angel followed and said, ‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great….’ A third angel followed them and said: ‘If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he too will drink from the wine of God’s wreath.’” (Rev.14:6-10).

The flag, through its logo and design, tries to cover all these aspects, but focuses mostly on the final phase of God’s redemptive work – the final eradication of sin from the Universe and the return of His Son to take people back to their Heavenly Father, just as the Sanctuary services did.

Shiloh, the name by which Jacob called Messiah when he predicted that He will come through the tribe of Judah, and also the name of the place where the Tabernacle sat for hundreds of years, combines and connects the symbolism and reality of Messiah.
