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.

Exodus (Program #95) – The First Layer of the Covering (1)

God’s people Israel spent 40 years journeying through the wilderness of Sinai on their way from Egypt to Canaan, the Good Land.  In a sense, they camped out for those years in tents that could easily be transported as they move about.  The God of their fathers, Abraham, Issac and Jacob joined them on this journey.  Joining them to such an extend that He too took a tent for a dwelling.   This tent is called the tabernacle.  It is mysterious, yet a marvelous type of Christ and the church.

We had 14 programs since we re-joined the life study of Exodus.  They all dealt with different articles and the various items that Jehovah ordained to furnish the two inner chambers of the tabernacle.  Thus far we looked at the Ark of the Testimony in the Holy of Holies.  More recently the Showbread Table or the Table of the Bread of the Presence and the golden lampstand that were both in the Holy Place.  Today we want to begin to look at the details of the actual structure, the tabernacle itself, it’s dimension and the materials used in its construction.  We really seeing that, when properly open up, these details are utterly marvelous in what they portrait of the riches of Christ.
