Transcript of The Tabernacle; Talks 1-4
The Bible says that believers, God’s people, are the Temples of the Living God. So in a very real sense in this series we’ll be challenged to explore the Temple in which God has chosen to dwell.
We know from Scripture that Moses was with God for 40 days up the Mountain. It was during this time God gave Moses detailed instructions on how to construct the Tabernacle in their time of journeys in the wilderness. Moses carefully noted and implemented God’s plans establishing the Court, the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies. The Bible refers to God’s instruction as the Pattern of the Tabernacle (see Exodus 25:9, 25:40; Numbers 8:4).
The New Covenant describes God’s people as as earthen vessels or jars of clay (see 2 Corinthians 4:7) who contain spiritual treasures.
So the goal of our exploration is to discover these Temple Treasures — for example, identifying our inheritance in Christ Jesus.
