Exodus Chapter 27 Discussion

    Just as in the materials used in the tabernacle, in GOD'S hands everything is good and precious in HIS sight. The worst sinner, who I am, when confessed and repented according to scripture will be a "pearl of great price" in the hands of my SAVIOR GOD.

    1 Corinthians 1:

    27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

    28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

    29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

    As the time of the LORD'S return is imminent, may we be encouraged and diligent in our desire to praise the LORD and declare the gospel to as many as we can.

    The LORD to shine HIS face and bless each of us gloriously as we faithfully await HIM. May our hearts and mind continually stay on JESUS, that we may be at peace because our mind is stayed on our GOD. Isaiah 26: 3, 4

    Happy New Year brethren. As we pray for the peace in Jerusalem, and the ministries of the LORD around the world. May we be found faithful to stand in the gap and make up the hedge as the LORD requires for the land to be blessed. Ezekiel 22:30

    God the Father is the creator! He is the perfect one! No one ,No one can stand before Him or look upon Him! He sends His Son, a part of Himself to reveal Himself unto us!

    I know, and do not know ,why He would do this.

    In all His benevolence,in all His person of who He is ,He reaches out to man in and through His son Jesus! These things started long ago through a promise given to Abraham! This is the explanation in His word!

    So, our God wants us to know who He is!

    Our God is who He says He is, the creator of all things!

    Even so, we cannot know Him on our terms, or with the nature we have. There must be reconciliation. A reconciliation (A Path ) that will provide a way unto Him.

    These are the conditions. Only, Because of sin.

    The same sin as was from the beginning and is still born within everyone of us! (original sin).

    Knowing these things is the groundwork required for knowing the heavenly of Him! If you are drawn unto Him, then this is the treasure that is before you! Jesus died that you and I might know Him! This is the treasure set before you!

    Repent and be Baptized

    Ex. ch. 27

    In this chapter the altar of sacrifice is described. It is made of brass (brazen) not gold. It is outside of the Holy of Holies, separated from the Presence of God on the mercy seat of the ark in the Holy of Holies. It has a brass grate in a hallowed out center with a catch basin to collect the ashes that fall through the grate when the sacrifice is burned on top of the grate. Wood is used as the fuel that burns the sacrifice, not oil.

    The altar is were the sacrifice for sin is made. This reminds me that the cross is where Jesus took all of our sins upon Himself. He became the sacrifice for our sins. They were all destroyed, like ashes, at the cross, just like the ashes we collected beneath the altar. So the altar of sacrifice was the place of removal of sin from the Israelites, and the cross is the place of the removal of all of our sins, once and for all (unlike the brazen altar where sacrifices are made daily for the sins of the people).

    This sacrifice needed to be done outside the "temple" because sin cannot come into the presence of our holy God. Jesus was crucified outside the temple, outside the walls of the city on an elevated place (altar), Golgotha (place of the skull).

    This altar in the tabernacle reminds the Israelites that sin requires an atonement of death of a sacrifice. It required the shedding of blood unto death. It requires the death of one who is without sin to (without spot or wrinkle) to be a substitute for our sinful persons. The differences between the sacrifice of lambs and bulls on this altar and the sacrifice of Christ are that animals are not a perfect substitute for man. The perfect substitute must be a sinless human. And that the animal sacrificed stayed dead, but Jesus, because He was God, too, rose from the dead, thus justifying us with His righteousness. He did not see decay, no, not as the ashes of the sacrifice on the altar. He rose up bodily without decay, but with the wounds of His crucifixion upon his body.

    Exodus Ch. 26

    In this chapter, the tabernacle is described in detail, from the curtains, to the pillars, to the hooks and fasteners, to the wood overlayed in gold or brass, to the brazen altar for sacrifice, to the roof of skins, to the veil before the Holy of Holies. There were a lot of specific measurements concerning the tabernacle. God was exacting in his requirements since the tabernacle was a representation of what was true in heaven.

    For me, what stood out was the care that was taken about making the tabernacle enclosure somewhat impenetrable except when one went through the front entrance. There is only one way to the presence of God, that is through the body and blood of Jesus Christ, the door. No other way is possible to come into the presence of the Godhead.

    Also, once inside the tabernacle, there was an outer court and an inner court which was curtained off. Inside this Holy of Holies was the ark where the presence of God was manifested to the high priest only, once a year. This reminds us that it is Jesus only who can stand before the Father, who dwells in impenetrable light. Jesus is worthy to stand before the Father and live, not us. He is the Mediator between God and man, He alone. No other being can reconcile us to God nor bring needs and prayers. Jesus is our intercessor before the Father. All of our prayers and requests go through Jesus to the Father. That is why Jesus told us that our requests will be answered by the Father in the name of Jesus. ( John 16:23) In Hebrews it says that because the curtain was torn in two between the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies, giving us entrance to the Presence of the Father, however the curtain is Jesus body, sacrificed on the cross for us. So, if we are ever to stand before the Father, it will always be with Jesus, not on our own, and it is because we are "in" Him that we can be brought into the Father's presence.

    We shall see how this goes when we get to heaven and possess all of our inheritance.

    The word of the lord is the best wealth humanity have every shared, the sacrifice of love is important to share. the tabernacle is a place of Gods grace and favor.

    It goes way more deeper than the image of christ,when taught by God you can see the tabernacle reveal the New Heaven and New Earth.

    These chapters are so helpful in understanding the details that God showed His people concerning what is acceptable and pleasing with our Holy God. I like to listen to the audio of this and other chapters as I look at images on the internet of the tabernacle, altar etc... it helps to solidify the information. I can almost imagine them creating these structures and instruments.

    Amazing how everything in the tabernacle reflect Christ and how his people are to view him. I have a limited understanding in all of this. My pastor is teaching about the tabernacle Wednesday nights.
