As I said in an earlier post, the tabernacle is a physical illustration of heaven and a visual illustration of the coming Messiah as well as a visual illustration of the Christian life (how to be holy before God). If you want to understand Spiritual formation, it is lived out in the design and ministry of the Tabernacle.
1 Corinthians 6:19 states that we are the Tabernacle…God’s dwelling place 1 Peter 2:5, 9 state that we are part of the priesthood, the one belonging to Aaron in the text today. Hebrews 10:19-25 is used to show a pattern of worship in the Tabernacle, prescribed by God.
There is something supernatural about this Tabernacle. It is an illustration of things we can hardly get our hands around. Following the plans and living in its pattern of ministry is a holy process. As you take time to study the Tabernacle you will discover more about the past, present and future of the God that made a way for you.
This blog was originally written by Pastor Doug Bartel of Hillcrest Church, starting in Spring 2009. Keep that in mind if you read anything that doesn't quite add up to the time of year.
Come journey with us as we read through the Bible in a year. It is our desire to hear what God wants from us and to know his promises as well as warnings. Each day we will read a text and together we will share what we are learning and encourage one another to finish the goal!
