Spent today at my first mens conference at MD Church on the Rock. It was a very enlightening to learn about the Old Testament Tabernacle, the one described in Exodus during the time of Moses and Aaron. We learned about every piece within it: the lampstand, the table of shewbread, the altar of incense, the Ark of the Covenant, the laver, the high priest, and the golden alter.
Then, what all of these Old Testament components now represent upon the new covenant with Jesus as our High Priest. Each piece had its purpose, yet it was all a physical substitute to become righteous before God whereas after Jesus freeing the world of sin, substituting Himself, He has become our Light, our Food, our intercessor of prayer, He cleansed us, became the sacrifice, and is our High Priest!
It is truly amazing how nearly everything in the Old Testament points to our Savior. What He did for us is incomparable. All I can say is thank you Jesus and thank you for using MD Church on the Rock to be a vessel to sharpen us that much more.
