And thou shalt make an altar of shittim wood, five cubits long, and five cubits broad; the altar shall be foursquare: and the height thereof shall be three cubits.
All the vessels of the tabernacle in all the service thereof, and all the pins thereof, and all the pins of the court, shall be of brass. And thou shalt command the children of Israel, that they bring thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamp to burn always. In the Tabernacle of the congregation without the vail, which is before the Testimony, Aaron and his sons shall order it from evening to morning before the LORD: it shall be a statute for ever unto their generations on the behalf of the children of Israel. (Exo 27:1, 19-21)
Here we have several chapters describing the contents of the Tabernacle where GOD will meet with His people. GOD is very detailed and exact in giving the instructions to Moses for the shape, size, wood, coverings and arrangement of all the items within and part of His Sanctuary. All of it reflects His glory, and is arranged so that people approach Him worthy, for sinners cannot come directly to God, for He is Holy. They had to repent, be sanctified, and their sins covered by the blood, and even then could only go so far to present themselves to God.
GOD is Holy and just, and our sins must be paid for. Only the blood of a perfect sacrifice will do. In the days of the Tabernacle and Temple, it was lambs, goats and cows, which just covered their sin for a time. Today, because of the blood of Jesus Christ, who gave Himself to pay for the sIn of the whole world, we have access to not only Heaven, but GOD Himself. We can approach boldly to the Throne in time of need and receive grace. Because of grace we can praise Him for all His wondrous works and we worship our Glorious King. Because of His grace we can talk to our Heavenly Father.
We are now ordained to be the priests of GOD. GOD has not set only some men, but all who have received Jesus Christ by faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary to be His priests, and to take His message of grace, hope, and love to this lost and dying world. We are to go as His ambassadors and live Holy lives that others might see Jesus in us, ministering to the needs around us. We are to love one another, that they may know we are His disciples, disciplined committed followers of the Master. We are to share the Gospel, and as we go, proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to all who will hear and believe, that believing they might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
