    Correlations of I Am to the Tabernacle Setup

    My brother saw where someone pointed out the following 7 correlations. If nothing else, it's interesting, and may serve as a memory device.
    The Tabernacle setup in Exo 40 has a specific order. If we eliminate a couple of the items, the order is:
    1) Table of Bread
    2) Candelabra
    3) Tabernacle Entrance
    4) Burnt Altar
    5) Laver of Water
    6) Courtyard Entrance
    7) Priesthood

    Jesus mentions his attributes in this specific order in the Gospel of John:
    1) John 6: Bread of Life
    2) John 8-9: Light of World
    3) John 10: Gate for the Sheep
    4) John 10: Good Shepherd who lays his life down for the sheep
    5) John 11: Resurrection and Life
    6) John 14: Way, Truth, and Life
    7) John 15: True Vine, connecting to the Branches

    Do you see a pattern here? Let's go ahead and look at the full order of the setup of the Tabernacle in Exo 40. In reality, the full order of setup is:
    1) Ark
    2) Veil to Holy of Holies
    3) Table of Bread
    4) Candelabra
    5) Altar of Incense
    6) Tabernacle Entrance
    7) Burnt Altar
    8) Laver of Water
    9) Courtyard Entrance
    10) Priesthood

    We may perhaps understand the relationshp of Jesus being the...
    1) Messiah as the Ark of God (John 4)
    2) Savior as the Veil to Holy of Holies
    3) Bread to the Table of Bread
    4) Light to the Candelabra
    5) Son of Man as Altar of Incense (John 9)
    6) Gate to the Tabernacle Entrance
    7) Shepherd who lays down his life to the Burnt Altar
    8) New Life to the Laver of Water
    9) Way to the Courtyard Entrance
    10) Vine to the Priesthood

    ....
    I always love it when these things are pointed out. The Tabernacle presents an almost unending revelation of God and His Christ and His purpose with man. Let's shortly take another view.
    Man is made of three parts - so is the Tabernacle
    1. The outer court with its altar is the FLESH. All it is good for is killing on the altar and burying in waters of the Laver.
    2. The Holy Place is the SOUL. In it man is fed by the Bread of Life, enlightened by the Candlestick and has his prayers carried by Christ as Incense
    3. The Holy of Holies is the SPIRITof man. In it dwells the very God of the universe.

    The Holy of Holies carries three things:
    (1) The Ark of the Covenant, (2) the Cherubim and (3) the Mercy Seat. We need Mercy but it is based of a Man passing the cherubim and surviving them - Jesus

    The Ark of the Covenant has three things in it:
    1. The hidden manna. Manna in the wilderness is God's sustenance. It gives life. But the "hidden manna" is a REWARD
    2. The Tables of God's Law. It is the spirit of man that God speaks His will
    3. The Budding Rod of Aaron. The Spirit of God in the human spirit is the guarantee for resurrection

    The Holy Place has three things in it:
    1. The Show-Bread Altar carrying the Bread of Life
    2. The Candlestick to give Light to the Christian
    3. The Incense Altar - Christ carrying our petitions through the Veil to God

    The Outer Court has three things in it:
    1. The Bronze Altar - depicting Jesus Judged for our sins
    2. The Laver - depicting our washing and our burial of the flesh
    3. The Offering - the shedding of Christ's blood for our sins

    The Tabernacle is made of three elements:
    1. Gold - the Nature of God
    2. Silver - The atonement work of Christ
    3. Precious Stones - the transforming work of the Holy Spirit

    The High Priest carries three things into the Holy of Holies:
    1. The blood of the Offering showing the shedding of blood for the remission of sins
    2. The 12 precious stones on his shoulders showing Christ carries us in His strength to God's presence
    3. The 12 precious stones on his breast showing Christ carries us to the presence of the Father "close to His heart" (in love)

    THREE is the number of resurrection. This House of God is made for LIFE - RESURRECTION LIFE

    Amen. It's always fun to contemplate these things. Sometime I may share more on this that sort of depicts the history of redemption.
