Exodus (Program #110) – The Court of the Tabernacle (1)
In ancient time, the tabernacle was God’s dwelling place on earth among His people. God’s House must always be in a sphere of righteousness. The tabernacle was surrounded by curtains of white linen and linen in the Bible always signifies righteousness. Stay with us today as we get another view of God’s House.
Our words today brings us to the outward appearance of the tabernacle. Around the whole perimeter of the tabernacle was essentially a fence that was made of curtains or hangings of white linen attached to bronze pillars. Exodus 27:9-10 “And you shall make the court of the tabernacle. On the south side southward there shall be hangings for the court of fine twined linen, one hundred cubits long for one side; And its twenty pillars and their twenty sockets shall be of bronze; the hooks of the pillars and their connecting rods shall be of silver.” Mainly two things made up the outward appearance of the tabernacle; white linen and bronze. What are these two materials signify in typology in the Bible?
Exodus (Program #102) – The Curtain for the Door of the Tent (2)
The Old Testament tabernacle had two distinct sections with two curtains covering the entrances. One curtain was called a veil, the other a screen. Both of these curtains depict the death of Christ dealing with so many negative things. Yet both curtains became the entrance for God’s people. They are mysterious, yet marvelous. The curtains in the tabernacle are our theme today.
We are back in the tabernacle today. As we have seen, the tabernacle is a perfect picture of God’s dwelling place with man, so it is a good place to be.
Exodus (Program #103) – Genesis Program 102, Life-study of Genesis 88
You may think I should ask God for things like patience or love or joy. But we have to realize that God doesn’t desire to give you just little packages; love, joy, peace these things. He desires just to give us Himself.
We have something a little different today, as we are going to take a departure from our life study of Exodus. In this life study we’ve come to the curtains in the tabernacle. They are a wonderful picture of Christ. But these curtains were hung on the pillars. Pillars, as we’ve seen many times are mentioned throughout the Bible, both in the Old and New Testament. Pillar are always related to the building of God’s dwelling place, the church.
Exodus (Program #96) – The First Layer of the Covering (2)
All of God’s saved ones have surely seen the Christ of the Gospels, the Son of God who loved us and gave Himself up for us that we might be saved. This in itself surely is marvelous, but have you seen the same Christ revealed in even greater details through the types and symbols of the Old Testament? To do so is to have our faith in God’s word strengthened and our love and appreciation of Him, much much deepen. Stay with us as we see the very Christ of our salvation in the details of the tabernacle, God’s dwelling place with man on today’s life study.
From Exodus 26, there were 4 layers of covering over the tabernacle. We did look at the first layer; ten curtains, made of fine linen, colored blue, purple and scarlet and then with the cherubim embroidered on them. Today we’re going to look at the other three layers. But we really need to keep in mind all the significance of these details that we saw.
