To continue our discussion - we were blessed to get to tour a full sized replica of Moses' tabernacle recently. It was so cool. Judiazing teaching is summarily condemned in the New Testament, but there are RICHES to be gained from learning as much as we can from the Old Testament about God.

I was happy to wear my red top for this tour. In my mind it was joyous to enter the tabernacle knowing that I was washed in the blood of THE Lamb who the tabernacle foretold. There were so many cool dimensions to this area of thought and it was good.

I have just been working on these posts about the tabernacle and choosing photos to add to them when it just hit me...WE NEVER ACTUALLY ENTERED THE TABERNACLE, ONLY THE OUTER COURT, BUT IN MY MIND WE HAD!!!! The tour took us into the outer court but then the guide spoke from inside the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies...we never entered in! Think about that a moment ...

This is so powerful and important! How often do we as Christians come to "worship", surrounded by "holy" and "spiritual things", spend our hour and then go home thinking we'd worshiped, when in truth we had not entered in at all, or at the most, just the outer courts?? How often are we spiritually lazy and don't put the effort into truly worshiping in spirit and in truth and delude ourselves into thinking we have, simply because we came to the building, sat in the seats, sang some songs, etc. God should be grateful we got up and came! After all, most people don't even do that much, so we're better than them! That's good enough! That is not worship and that is not acceptable to our Holy God.

  • "True worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks." John 4:23
  • "YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND" Luke 10:27
  • "You will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul." Deuteronomy 4:29
  • "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. "Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'" Matthew 7:21-23
This snare of the devil is like these thistles, their blossoms are lovely, but the thorns are unavoidable. The "worship" looks and feels fine to the casual observer, but the results will be inescapable. Now for your freebie! And yes, they are this bright a fuchsia in real life!
