The Tabernacle

You may have heard that the Tabernacle is a model for our relationship with Christ, and through Him with God. Sometimes I see that more clearly than other times, and yesterday's Chronological Bible reading was one of those times.

In Numbers 7:89-90, it says that "whenever Moses went into the Tabernacle to speak with the Lord, he heard the voice speaking to him from between the two cherubim above the Ark's cover-the place of atonement-that rests on the Ark of the Covenant. The Lord spoke to him from there."

That is the same place we get to hear from God...the place of atonement. We get to communicate freely with God through the atonement, the sacrifice, of Jesus Christ. It is because of His blood that was shed that we can approach the throne boldly, with confidence through Christ, seeking out the voice of God.
