Give ear unto the Lord. Pray that you might find comfort in God. This was something that the people of Israel did often. They knew that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is real and leading His people. He would not let the enemy take hold of them as long as He was with them. To make this easier for the people, He had them create earthly tabernacles where sacrifices could be made in order for their sins to be forgiven. They relied on this each time a person and the people sinned. In so doing, they trusted in God and looked for a Messiah to come. David wrote, “Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah. For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.” (Psalm 61:1-5) The Lord Jesus did come. Those who call upon His Name are adopted in as His people.
Jesus is our better tabernacle. The Messiah and Savior to come. He came and died for our sins, taking away the need for earthly tabernacles and sacrificial offerings. Therefore, we don’t go to places anymore to find God, for His presence is in us, His true believers. We can abide in Jesus instead of going to a place made with hands. When we trust in Him and call upon His Name, the Holy Spirit is with us. Paul wrote, “but Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building. Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” (Hebrews 9:11-14) Praise the Lord. Jesus is with us!
Let us pray:
Oh lord, I pray that people will understand the need to have You in their lives. To stop trying to find you in a man-made church or temple, for You are with those already that trust in You. I love attending church, but when the Spirit is strong, it is in us. Thank You for manifesting Yourself in our lives, God. I am grateful that we have churches with pastors teaching Your truths. I just don’t understand why people would go so far as to build earthly tabernacles again. It is like they reject what You have done for us, Jesus, on the cross. How can they try to put You back in a box when You are already our better tabernacle? When I see temples that say holiness unto the Lord, like in Mormonism, I have to wonder where their hearts are at. Lord, wake them up to these sins. It is wicked to try to recreate earthly tabernacles for You when You are not the one leading that charge. I love these people and only want them to wake up to their false beliefs, in order to find a true relationship with You, Jesus. You are God and I am grateful for Your presence in my life. I love You, Lord. Amen.
