The Temples God Describes: First, Second, Third, and Final
Today we need to ponder how the Tabernacle God intricately designed and described, as well as the four Temples God's Word describes, fit into God’s great plan of the Ages. To understand we need to remember that:
The heartbeat of God's Word is worship.
The only thing God seeks is worship.
The purpose of salvation is worshiping the God of Heaven.
So, to start with—is your heart the heart of a worshipper?
Always remind yourself that the tabernacle, which God instructed Moses to construct, covers more chapters (Exodus 25-40) that any other object in the entire Bible. That means that the Tabernacle, and later the Temple, are powerful lessons to guide us in our pursuit of deepening our fellowship with the Lord.
The Tabernacle was God's Portrait of Christ “tenting” among us
Every detail of the Tabernacle, every piece of furniture, color and placement were all engineered to point to Christ. Jesus came to reveal God the Father. The past Tabernacle and Temple, and the future Temples of God in Jerusalem are all designed to point us to Christ. Here is a simple sketch of Christ in the Tabernacle and Temple.
