Introduction: Augustine, alluding to the Bible, said "The New is in the Old disguised. The Old is in the New uncovered." He is alluding to the way that numerous things and individuals in the Old Testament point ahead to things all the more obviously uncovered in the New Testament. This was the thought in Paul's psyche when he said, "Presently everything happened unto them for ensamples: and they are composed for our counsel, upon whom the finishes of the world are come." 1 Cor. 10:11.
What I am attempting to say is that in the Old Testament there are many articles that point ahead to insights all the more completely uncovered in the New Testament. For example, we realize that the Brazen Serpent of Numbers 21 was a kind of the Lord Jesus, John 3:14. We likewise realize that the Manna of Exodus 16 was additionally a sort or an image of Jesus Christ, John 6:31-35. There are a lot more model which are too various to even consider naming, yet I think you get the point. Of the multitude of types in the Old Testament, none is more wealthy in its imagery than the Tabernacle. From one finish to the next, the Tabernacle is an image of the Lord Jesus and of the reclamation devotees appreciate in Him. This evening, I might want to concentrate on the cover of the Tabernacle. This item contains an extraordinary directive for the individuals who will see it. This cover is a brilliant sort of Jesus Christ. As a matter of fact, it is explicitly an image of Jesus and His work while He was here in His tissue, Heb. 10:20, "By a new and living way, which he hath blessed for us, through the cloak, in other words, his tissue," In view of that, we should invest some energy taking a gander at the cover and what it addresses. I. V. 31-33a THE PATTERN OF THE VEIL A. The Colors Used In The Veil - Often, colors in the Bible are emblematic in nature. The tones utilized in the cloak of the Tabernacle are no exemption. These varieties paint a representation of the Lord Jesus Christ and of Who He is. 1. Blue - Blue is the shade of the sky and it helps us to remember the Heavenly beginning of the Lord Jesus. He is the Son of God - Rom. 8:3; 1 Tim.. 3:16. 2. Red - (Ill. I'm skirting purple for the second to delineate a point.) This is the shade of blood and it discusses Jesus as the Lamb of God, the ideal penance for the transgressions of man, Rev. 1:5; John 15:13. 3. Purple - This is the shade of eminence and it advises us that Jesus Christ is the King of Kings, Isa. 9:6-7; Rev. 19:16. (Presently here is the reason I skirted purple. Purple is made by mixing equivalent measures of red and blue. Jesus Christ is an ideal mix of God and man. He is 100 percent both simultaneously.) B. The Cloth Used In The Veil - Pure, white material was the fabric that should have been utilized. This talks about the virtue of the Lord Jesus. It advises us that He was blameless - 1 Pet. 2:22; 1 Cor. 5:21. C. The Construction Used In The Veil - Notice that this material was to be "fine twined" and of a "craftiness work." This lets us know that the fabric utilized was to be of an extraordinary weave. It would be not quite the same as some other fabric. So it is with Jesus! There has never been another man like Him! In His individual, He was the ideal mix of Deity and mankind. He is the God-Man! He is extraordinary for He is God in the tissue, John 1:1; 14; Phil. 2:5-8. (Sick. We could stop here and realize that the shroud uncovers a lot of about Who Jesus is. Be that as it may, there is something else entirely to the message of the cloak.) I. The Pattern Of The Veil II. V. 31-33 THE PURPOSE OF THE VEIL A. It Served As A Warning - This cover was hung between the heavenly spot, where the clerics served ordinary, and the Holy of Holies, where the presence of God stayed over the Mercy Seat. It filled in as an obstruction between blessed God and evil man. They were told to set up the cloak with "cherubim" on it. The cherubim are saintly animals that act as the gatekeepers of the heavenliness of God. They are first found in Gen. 3:24, when they were situated at the entry of Eden to keep man from accessing the tree of life. The presence of the cherubim on the shroud appear to effectively tell the individuals who entered the Tabernacle that they could come this far and no farther! They were a consistent update that admittance to God was prohibited. God is heavenly and man a miscreant. Consequently, the cherubim were set there to caution all who moved toward the shroud that to proceed was to welcome judgment and passing! They reminded all that a blessed God stayed simply behind the cover. (Sick. What elegance that God would caution men not to come into His presence in their wicked condition! The cherubim were there to caution man, however they likewise safeguarded men and to protect life.) B. It Served As A Wall - This shroud filled in as a hindrance among God and man. It shut man out of the presence of God, Lev. 16:2, "And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy sibling, that he come not by any stretch times into the blessed spot inside the vail before the benevolence seat, which is upon the ark; that he bite the dust not: for I will show up in the cloud upon the leniency seat." (Sick. Between the delinquent and God, there is an extraordinary divider standing, Isa. 59:2. We can't move toward God inside ourselves. To truly do so would welcome judgment and passing. Before man can go into the presence of God, sin should initially be managed.) C. It Served As A Way - While this shroud kept men out, there was one day during the year when one man could enter. On the Day of Atonement, the esteemed cleric could go into the Holy of Holies, yet just with the blood of a symbol of atonement, Lev. 16:15, "Then will he kill the goat of the transgression offering, that is for individuals, and bring his blood inside the vail, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the benevolence seat, and before the leniency seat:" On that day, the devout cleric was permitted to around the side of the cover and clergyman in the Holy of Holies, sprinkling the blood of the penance on the special stepped area and making amends for the wrongdoings of individuals. It was the main time any one was permitted behind the shroud. (Sick. I simply need to advise you that blood in the main manner anybody approaches into the presence of God, Heb. 9:22; Heb. 10:19-20. Bloodless, Christless religion won't ever save the human spirit! The people who attempt to get to God without the blood of Jesus will end up in Hell, since there could be no other strategy God will acknowledge. To go into His presence, you should be brought back to life, John 3:3; 7. What's more, the best way to be brought back to life is through the blood of the Lamb, 1 Pet. 1:18-19. Say thanks to God, Jesus cleared the path for us to go into the presence of God by going to the cross for our wrongdoings!) D. It Served As A Witness - While the esteemed cleric could enter the Holy of Holies one every year, the clerics served in the blessed spot all year long. As they did, they came surprisingly close to the cover, however were never permitted to go past it. It was a consistent suggestion to them that they were heathens and that they were isolated from God. It was consistent sign of man's ethical disappointment. (Sick. So it is with the service of Jesus in the tissue. There are a many individuals who attempt to duplicate the daily routine Jesus experienced with an end goal to get their salvation. In any case, which men neglect to acknowledge is that the existence of Christ can't save! The existence of Christ denounces every one of us, as a matter of fact! He carried on with an ideal life and not even once trespassed against His Father or the Law. He did what you and I would never do: He carried on with an ideal existence without wrongdoing! Sick. John 15:22. He is the "greatness of God" that we all have missed the mark regarding, Rom. 3:23!) (Sick. In the last examination, the shroud effectively reminds man that he is a delinquent needing Savior and that he will always be unable to move toward God on his own benefits.) I. The Pattern Of The Veil II. The Purpose Of The Veil III. Mt. 27:51 THE PARTING OF THE VEIL A. The Method Of Its Parting - Notice that it was God and not man that separated the cover. While the ministers were offering the night penance, Mark 15:34, Jesus was offering His life as a payment for wrongdoing. At the point when the Innocent One kicked the bucket for the liable ones, the cloak split from the top to the base. Man didn't have anything to do with it, it was crafted by God alone! (Note: When Jesus kicked the bucket on the cross, the cover in the Temple was 60 feet high and 30 feet wide. It was said to have been 4 inches thick. It was weighty to such an extent that Josephus says that 300 ministers were expected to move it. He likewise says that 2 groups of bulls could not have possibly had the option to tear the cloak. Which man would never do, God did by His power!) (Sick. The equivalent is valid with the salvation we partake in tonight! We didn't have anything to do with it by any means. It started with God in Heaven before the world was shaped, Rev. 13:8; 1 Pet. 1:20. It was completed at Calvary without our assistance, Isa. 53:6, 10, Ill. The severe demise of the Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation was and is crafted by a sovereign God!) B. The Message Of Its Parting - The message of the lease cover is perfectly clear, it lets us know all that the way to God is open. I can envision the clerics in the sanctuary sewing the separated shroud back together and forging ahead in their vain religion, not understanding that now, the way to God was opened to all. One day out of every year, except constantly! Sick. Eph. 2:11-18!) C. The Majesty Of Its Parting - Because how has been opened into the presence of God, "whosoever will" can come into His presence and approach God Himself, Rev. 22:17; John 3:16! I acclaim the Lord that the way to God has been everlastingly opened for yourself and me! Conc: When the consecrated minister entered behind the cloak, he came into the actual presence of God Himself. He offered the blood and needed to leave. He was not permitted back in that frame of mind one year from now. He would never precede God without blood and he was unable to come when he needed to, however just when God permitted. Notwithstanding, when Jesus came in the tissue and gave His life for yourself and me, He always destroyed that center method of parcel. He separated every one of the obstructions that remained among us and free admittance to the Father. Presently, in Jesus, we can precede OUR Father at whenever!
