The Tabernacle – The Dwelling of God
The Tabernacle is Jesus Christ from first to last.
To learn about Jesus Christ is to learn about the tabernacle
To learn about the tabernacle is to learn about Jesus Christ.
The tabernacle symbolically shows
our sinful, condemned, condition before God.
It shows God’s one and only solution to make us acceptable to Him once again.
The tabernacle shows how we are separate from God’s heavenly dwelling by death, and how God through Jesus Christ has done all the work to bring us back to Himself, so that we can abide with Him forever in his heavenly dwelling.
“This is what the Lord says,
I Am the first and I Am the last; apart from me there is no God.”
Why learn about the Tabernacle if I’m not an Israeli, it has nothing to do with me, does it?
Jesus Christ was an Israeli – a pure Jew and in John 4:22 said
“You Samaritans worship what you don’t know, we Jews worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews”
Salvation and the true worship of God is through Jesus Christ, who said,
“I Am The Way, The Truth and The Life, no one comes to the Father but through Me.”
We are no longer in the Jewish era. We are in an era where both Jew and gentile (non-Jew) are brought together in and as one body, which is called the Church. This is an incredible era of privilege and responsibility, which never existed before the cross and will not exist ever again, after the church is raptured and resurrected and the era of the Jews continues.
It is a period of time where God has superlatively blessed us with the provision of eternal blessings and rewards, which stagger our most vivid imaginations.
“To Him who is able to do immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us. To Him be Glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever, Amen.
The one who gave the tabernacle and its furniture with its dimensions is the same one who created everything: Jesus Christ.
The Church has its foundation completely in the Old Testament. Much of the Old Testament casts a shadow on the Church, providing examples of faith for us to follow. Abraham being the pattern for faith as the example of the Old Testament.
Genesis 15:6, Romans 4:3, Galatians 3;6-9
“Abraham believed (in) the Lord and it was credited to Him as righteousness.”
To understand the Church, we must go back to the very beginning of things and work our way forward. We must see the First, the Middle and the Last. In looking at the Middle and the last we will be looking at the end times. The end times, being the Church, the great tribulation and the Millennial reign of Jesus Christ, all culminating with the destruction of the present universe, the Great White Throne Judgement and the creation of the new heavens and earth.
