The True Tabernacle
Hebrews 8:2 (KJB) A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.
Many miss the symbolism and Truth of God found in the Old Testament. The true tabernacle is one of those things often over looked and missed. Who cares about the set up and dismantling, and the vanishing of an old tent anyways…
However, the tabernacle is highly important. It is a picture of the one true God who covers sin.
It was a place for man to come and meet with God through an intercessor, the priest, to find cover for their sin through the giving of sacrifices.
Today, we have the best of the best! We live in a time of the Age of Grace. Mankind no longer must go to the temple of God to offer a shed blood sacrifice for sin. We have an eternal temple, through the shed blood sacrifice of God’s Only Son Jesus Christ.
God has perpetually REMOVED the power of sin and provided an eternal answer for all mankind.
Yes, we live in New Testament times but intimate knowledge of truths found in Old Testament scripture are necessary to fully understand the New Testament and for proper for application of His Truth in our life.
