Life in the Tabernacle

Dear saints, join me on Facebook if you’d like: https://www.facebook.com/peterskii.

God gave the Law to the Israelites, but He dealt with them according to the Tabernacle. If He dealt with them according to the Law, they should have died. But, He dealt with them according to the Tabernacle, so that there would be atonement for their sins. Paul even points out that the Law was just something temporary. It was never God’s desire to give us the Law. But, God did desire to Tabernacle among us. There is so much depth to the Tabernacle. Every detail described from Ex 25-31 is a revelation, but that could take an entire book .

Mainly it reveals God’s desire to dwell on earth among His People. John reveals to us that Jesus tabernacled among us. The Tabernacle is a shadow of Jesus. It’s not just a picture of Jesus, but also of us. 

The Tabernacle is a picture of the New Creation. At the front of the Tabernacle was the altar, which represented the cross. The cross is the way in the New Creation.

The Outer Court is the body. It’s visible to all. The Holy Place is the soul, or mind, will, and emotions. It’s not visible to all. Only a select few can gain access to a person’s soul. The Most Holy Place is the spirit, where God dwells. It’s where we enjoy God and our senses are useless there. We must enter into our Holy of Holies to worship in Spirit and Reality.

The soul is the person, the connection between spirit and body. This was also displayed in the Garden of Eden, where we are set before the Tree of Life(spirit) and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil(flesh). We are always eating from one of these Trees. Every time we turn to our spirit, we are enjoying Christ, the true Vine Tree of Life. We have even been grafted onto this Tree of Life and made a part of Him, as His branches, living by His Life Sap and producing His Fruit.

Since the veil was torn, in the flesh of Jesus, we may now turn to the Lord Spirit in our spirits and be transformed into the same Image as Him, who is the Image of the invisible God, from glory to glory.

  1. Peter, so good to see you posting again. And from my perspective, the timing on this tabernacle post couldn’t be any better. This past weekend our pastor went over the detail workings of the tabernacle according to the Law and he did so from the perspective of understanding and grasping God’s holiness … this next week we will see how Jesus fulfillled and is fulfilling the demands of the tabernacle on our behalf. Praise God that through the blood of Christ Jesus the veil was torn and a new Way was made for God to dwell in and amongst His children. Great post brother!
