The purpose of the Tabernacle was to show God’s presence and dwelling place in the midst of His people. The visible manifestation of God, in the natural world, was seen in the form of a pillar of cloud by day and in the form of a pillar of fire by night. In the Holy of Holies as the Shekinah glory of God above the mercy seat.
“When Christ came as high priest of the good things that have come, He went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not made by hands and is not a part of this creation. He did not enter by the blood of goats and calves, but He entered the Most Holy Place once for all by His own blood, thus securing eternal redemption. For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that their bodies are clean, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself unblemished to God, purify our consciences from works of death, so that we may serve the living God!” (Hebrews 9:11-13 BSB).
1 Cor 1:30 tells us; it is of God’s doing that we are in Christ. Our tabernacle, our body, is redeemed. We may enter and have full access to the holy place in us, where Christ dwells. In Oneness, saturated, permeated, infused, not to be separated any more. He is both the Genesis and genius of our wisdom; a wisdom that reveals how righteous, sanctified and redeemed we are in Him (Mirror). We are in oneness with him. We can live in the knowledge that we are the glory of God, always one with him. He in us, we in him.
The Tabernacle of Moses details the blueprint of our being, for as the tabernacle consists of 3 elements, outer court, holy place and most holy place, we mirror that in body, mind and spirit. The physical world enters through the gate of our body, but our quintessence is the unified spirit/mind which is where we find our true light, food and ‘holy communion’. It is as priests of our own body to maintain a clean house, purifying that which we allow to enter, accepting only the life-giving truth of Jesus, and rejecting the death of satan’s lie. Sit on the Throne of God, co-ruling with Jesus with power and authority over your earth (body and sphere of influence). Share the wealth of your divinity with others.
