We did have a wonderful lunch in Tlaquepaque in Sedona, but I was disappointed when Maureen told me the bad news. No tour for us. The Tabernacle suffered structural damage when the heavy rainstorms hit our state hard this week closing down the exhibit. I had hoped to write about my experience and share it with you today for my Spiritual Sunday post!
Why was the Old Testament tabernacle significant? It was a tent made with human hands. It was a highly detailed way that God wanted Israel to worship Him. It taught the children of Israel about salvation. It was a foreshadow of what was to come.
In the New Testament, Jesus is revealed as the fulfillment of the tabernacle system:
When Christ came as high priest of the good things that are already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not man-made, that is to say, not a part of this creation. He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, having obtained eternal redemption.
Hebrews 9: 11, 12
Today we do not have to travel to a tabernacle. Christ dwells in those of us who believe. Our Savior provided us access into the presence of God! Just think, because of Jesus we never have to worry about worship being cancelled when the storm comes. The fact is, worshipping Jesus is the place to run especially when the storms come!
