The Tabernacle (3)

Photo by Son Tung Tran on

Within the perimeters of the Outer Court stood a beautiful woven tent that housed the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies. The Holy Place corresponds with our soul. The walls were several layers thick. The innermost layer was of fine, twisted linen of blue, purple and scarlet, with pictures of cherubim woven into it. this was covered with a curtain of goat’s hair. Over it was a covering of red-dyed rams and porpoises skin. Thus, no natural lights was able to penetrate the tent.

Within the Holy Place were three pieces of furniture; the table of shewbread, the seven-branched lampstand and the alter of incense. As the flour was finely ground to make the unleavened bread, our souls must be finely ground as we totally commit ourselves to the Lord. Our Christian relationships grind down our wills. Only when we have surrendered our “right” of self-determination and our desire is truly only to do His will, can we hear the His voice with purity of heart.
