FROM DELIVERANCE TO GLORY

The Tabernacle In The Wilderness – Exodus 25:1-9

Remembering now that Moses is on the Mount receiving the writings from God; we find God beginning to lay down the polity of their worship of Himself.  The tabernacle was a representation of His presence with them.  It is holy and sacred. As the tabernacle was in the midst of the camps of Israel; so too is Christ in the midst of His people.
A. W. Pink wrote, “The tabernacle has no fewer than three meanings.  In the first place, the tabernacle is a type, a visible illustration, of that heavenly place in which God has His dwelling.  In the second place, the tabernacle  is a type of Jesus Christ, who is the meeting-place between God and man.  And, in the third place, the tabernacle is a type of Christ in the Church –of the communion of Jesus with all believers” quoting Adolph Saphir.
