Exodus (Program #125) – The Priestly Garments (10 & 11) Urim and Thummin

There is a very tender picture of our Lord Jesus holding His redeemed ones in love in the Old Testament book of Exodus.  This picture matches the New Testament revelation as well as our own experience of being held by His love.  But the picture in the Old Testament reveals that God’s people are not only held by His love, they are also upheld by His strength.

This week we have been looking at Ephod and the 3 items that were attached to it or added to it in the priest’s garment.  These are the two shoulder pieces that had onyx stones attached and then also the breast plate worn in front by the priest.  This piece also contains precious stones, 12 of them actually.  We seen that the Ephod, this vest-like outer garment is a clear picture of Jesus Christ.  What are these added items, these precious stone items signify?

Exodus (Program #124) – The Priestly Garments (9) Memorial Before God, Rings, Chains, Fine Linen

All genuine believers in Christ should have the sense that they are being upheld or born by Him.  This is the intimate part of our experience of the loving Savior; to sense that He is bearing us.  But not only does Christ hold us or bear us individually, the Bible reveals that the way in which Christ bear His people primarily is corporately.  We will see the High Priest bearing the tribe of Israel on His breast and shoulder.
