  3. 3.

But Christ having come a high priest of the good things to come, through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation, • 12. nor yet through the blood of goats and calves, but through his own blood, entered in once for all into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption.
  4. 4. The first tabernacle, a figure (type) • had a priesthood • they served before God • gifts and sacrifices • only for the time present, imposed until a time of reformation
  5. 5. A greater and more perfect tabernacle • where Christ obtained our eternal redemption – not made with hands (spiritual) – not of this creation • Hebrews 9:23-24 – The Holy Place – heaven itself, where God is...
  6. 6. The tabernacle • The high priest • The sacrifice • The calendar of offerings • The tabernacle itself - the altar - the laver - the table of showbread - the lamp stand - the altar of incense - the veil - the ark of the covenant - the mercy seat
  7. 7. I Peter 2:9 • But ye are a elect race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession, that ye may show forth the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
  8. 8. Ephesians 2:4-6 but God, being rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5. even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace have ye been saved), 6. and raised us up with him, and made us to sit with him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus:
  9. 9. Hebrews 10:19-22 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holy place by the blood of Jesus, 20. by the way which he dedicated for us, a new and living way, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21. and having a great priest over the house of God; 22. let us draw near with a true heart in fulness of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience: and having our body washed with pure water,
  10. 10. The Levites, chosen to be priests • Deuteronomy 33 • Exodus 32:25-29 • Compare Matthew 10:31-38 • 1 Peter 2:3-10
  11. 11. Our Priesthood • We are living stones in a spiritual house (temple?) • We are a holy priesthood • We are to offer up spiritual sacrifices
  12. 12. God’s presence among His people – Deuteronomy 4:37 – Numbers 5:3 – Numbers 35:34 Therefore, they were to be a Holy people – Leviticus 11:44-45 – Leviticus 19:1-3, 20:26 – Deuteronomy 23:14
  13. 13. Priests only - near the holy things • Leviticus 6:14-18 • Leviticus 21:1-8
  14. 14. 1 Peter 1 13. Wherefore girding up the loins of your mind, be sober and set your hope perfectly on the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14. as children of obedience, not fashioning yourselves according to your former lusts in the time of your ignorance: 15. but like as he who called you is holy, be ye yourselves also holy in all manner of living; 16. because it is written, Ye shall be holy; for I am holy.
  15. 15. Exodus 30 17. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, 18. Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and the base thereof of brass, whereat to wash. And thou shalt put it between the tent of meeting and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein. 19. And Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet thereat: 20. when they go into the tent of meeting, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn an offering made by fire unto Jehovah. 21. So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.

  21. 21. Entrance • Only the priests, holy men appointed by God could enter the courtyard to serve • The first thing they approach is the ALTAR of sacrifice • Before entering the Holy Place the priest had to wash in the LAVER • Then the priest entered the tabernacle
  22. 22. Hebrews 10 19. Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holy place by the blood of Jesus, 20. by the way which he dedicated for us, a new and living way, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21. and having a great priest over the house of God; 22. let us draw near with a true heart in fulness of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience: and having our body washed with pure water,
  23. 23. The Picture • Before entering the tabernacle as a priest of God today, the Christian must first pass by the cross (Faith) and then wash (Baptism). • Then the Christian enters into the presence of God to serve continually. • The Christian never leaves the tabernacle
  24. 24. The True Tabernacle • Heaven itself, access to the very presence of God • The veil has been torn and there is NO longer anything separating the priest from God • We have access through Jesus to everything we need to live and serve before God
  25. 25. Jesus Christ – our everything • The bread of life • The light of the world • Our mediator • Table of Showbread • The Lampstand • The altar of incense • Our mercy seat / our atonement / our access into the very presence of God • As a priest we are sanctified and equipped to serve God in holiness and truth

  28. 28. Living in the Presence of God Hebrews 4:11-13 11. Let us therefore give diligence to enter into that rest, that no man fall after the same example of disobedience. 12. For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13. And there is no creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and laid open before the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
  29. 29. Holy Living 1 Peter 1 13. Wherefore girding up the loins of your mind, be sober and set your hope perfectly on the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14. as children of obedience, not fashioning yourselves according to your former lusts in the time of your ignorance: 15. but like as he who called you is holy, be ye yourselves also holy in all manner of living; 16. because it is written, Ye shall be holy; for I am holy.
