    Thank YOU FATHER for the wisdom YOU show in all that YOU do. Appreciate everyone and their input.

    GOD be praised and magnified as we are able to go before HIM in the blood of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and wisdom of HIS word, and guidance of HIS HOLY SPIRIT.

    Exodus ch. 28

    In this chapter God directs Moses in how to make the priestly garments of Aaron, the High Priest for the Israelites, and his sons, who were priests. Again, the instructions are very exacting and the garments contained intricacies. The garments were for beauty and honor for the high priest. I think of Jesus being clothed in majesty and power to whom all glory and honor and praise is given in worship. I think of how it is said that God wraps Himself in light and splendor. Certainly the High Priest would stand out among the people as very special and necessary for their relationship with YHWH. Jesus, too, stands out among all humans as absolutely special (incomparable worth) and is necessary for any human in one's relationship with God.

    I looked up a few of the words that I did not recognize:

    ouches were like buttons for fastening

    mitre is a twisted length of linen that is wound around the head-like a turbin

    girdle is like a sash or belt of linen

    ephod is two pieces of cloth joined at the shoulders with the onyx stones fastened to the other piece.

    the gold piece for the forehead was a type of crown and it said "Holiness to the Lord"

    habergeon-a vestment of chain metal for protection and so that the ephod cannot be rent.

    I think that there is probably much symbolism represented in the High Priest garments to represent our Lord Jesus.

    What stands out to me is that these garments most likely represent Jesus' purity-fine linen; heavenly existence prior to the incarnation and after the ascension-blue in the cloth; His deity-gold in the cloth; His sovereign as King of King-purple in the cloth; and His Messiahship for Israel-scarlet in the cloth.

    The preciousness of those Whom the Father gave to Jesus (believers) in the stones on the breastplate over the High Priest's heart.

    The absolute Holiness of Jesus as being set apart from before the creation of the world to be our Savior to reconcile us back to the Father in the golden plate (crown).

    ouches: cavities or sockets in which gems were set. If you got a wedding ring, these are the holder that the diamond or jewel is set in on the ring.

    They were for asking God to decide what they should do if they were not sure what to do. Jusuha asked of them when he didn't know to go up against their enemies or not to go up. God would answer by voice, what to do.

    The tabernacle was given to Moses like the design that is in heaven. Wherein, our father resides. All of the design represented his holiness and righteousness. Our father is holy, therefore the service of the tabernacle had to be holy. The precious stones represent the twelve tribes of Israel, who just like Aaron, put them in his side of his heart, our father also has them in his heart.

    Wow, our great Creator!

    Historically birthstones are said to be tied to the precious stones that are mentioned here. There are 12 stones and 12 months. Many of those that where there "birthstone" may not realize this. It is a point of interest that the world often has no idea of the biblical influences that are woven into lives.

    Verse 36: Jehovah God is the epitome of holiness. His servants must likewise strive to be holy in order to be pleasing to him.

    R. Raglin - I hope you are still 'here', but if not mayhap one day you will know of this: God bless you for your stand on His truth.

    Chapter 28:5 And they shall take gold, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen.

    Randy Raglin, those that say that the Old Testament isn 't relevant anymore do not understanding the Scripture neither the Word of God. Gen. 3:15 says, "And I will put enmity between thee-Satan and the serpent-and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed it shall bruise thy head-Jesus Christ resurrection-, and thy shall bruise his head-Jesus Christ crucified. Gal. 3:24 says, "Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith ". God bless us all and in the understanding of his Word. Praise Jehovah in the highest through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen!

    If we understand how God wanted His Priest to look on the outer garments...then we as Priest and Kings before the Lord must understand how He has commanded us to live inwardly that He may have true fellowship with us.
  • Curlywolf on Exodus 28:13 - 11 years ago
    I'm getting the idea that "Ouches" are possibly Curtain Rings.
  • Randy Raglin on Exodus 28:16 - 11 years ago
    I think what�s important is twofold. It's a square worn over the heart. And it contains the names of all tribes of God's people. Today we, as His priests, are to keep people (others) near our heart. All people, the 4 corners of the earth. Just like the 4 corners of the breastplate. But some say the Old Testament isn't relevant today. Yet Jesus is on every page if you look for Him.
