Jesus our Tabernacle Leads us to the Promised Land

To date we have demonstrated that Jesus is the fulfillment of the Tabernacle Courtyard, the Holy Place and all of the artifacts that are contained inside them.

Our most recent postings have identified the Golden Altar of Incense as the place for spiritual warfare because the smoke from it goes up to heaven and is perceived as the prayers of the people going up to God. In addition, we have concluded that Jesus is the fulfillment (a far superior replacement for the functionality and purpose) of the Golden Altar. This conclusion is demonstrated in His life actions, words and prayers, as they were all instrumental in bringing down the strongholds of evil that had previously held us captive.

In our last posting we provided information that demonstrated that Jesus has gone before us up into heaven to prepare a place for us (the fulfillment of the Promised Land). In addition, we quoted His words that reveal the violence (spiritual warfare) necessary to take heaven by force. Here is the link to this section: Jesus-Leads-us-To-The-Spiritual-Promised-Land

So, by drilling down on these subjects a bit we get an appreciation for the spiritual purpose of the Tabernacle, and since the Tabernacle is prophetic of Jesus we likewise get to see what the spiritual warfare of Jesus is all about as well. What we are about to find is that the purpose of the Tabernacle was to bring us closer to God and to guide us into the Promised Land. Since Jesus is the fulfillment of the Tabernacles’ prophesy, we will find that this is also the mission of Jesus as well. It is true for the collective body of Christians (the bride) and it is true for each of us individually.

Today I would like to present how the Ark of the Covenant was instrumental in leading the people into the Promised Land.

The Ark Leads the People to Canaan

So Joshua said to the children of Israel, “Come here, and hear the words of the LORD your God.” And Joshua said, “By this you shall know that the living God is among you, and that He will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Hivites and the Perizzites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Jebusites: Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth is crossing over before you into the Jordan. Now therefore, take for yourselves twelve men from the tribes of Israel, one man from every tribe. And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, that the waters of the Jordan shall be cut off, the waters that come down from upstream, and they shall stand as a heap.”


So it was, when the people set out from their camp to cross over the Jordan, with the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people, and as those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the whole time of harvest), that the waters which came down from upstream stood still, and rose in a heap very far away at Adam, the city that is beside Zaretan. So the waters that went down into the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, failed, and were cut off; and the people crossed over opposite Jericho. Then the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan; and all Israel crossed over on dry ground, until all the people had crossed completely over the Jordan. (Jos x: 9-17)

So, from this scripture we see that the Ark of the Covenant was instrumental in leading the people into the Promised Land by deploying the strong arm of the Lord. Now let us turn our attention to the violent taking the kingdom of heaven by force.

But it came to pass on the seventh day that they rose early, about the dawning of the day, and marched around the city seven times in the same manner. On that day only they marched around the city seven times. And the seventh time it happened, when the priests blew the trumpets, that Joshua said to the people: “Shout, for the LORD has given you the city! Now the city shall be doomed by the LORD to destruction, it and all who are in it. Only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all who are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent. And you, by all means abstain from the accursed things, lest you become accursed when you take of the accursed things, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it. But all the silver and gold, and vessels of bronze and iron, are consecrated to the LORD; they shall come into the treasury of the LORD.”


So the people shouted when the priests blew the trumpets. And it happened when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat. Then the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city. And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, ox and sheep and donkey, with the edge of the sword. (Jos xx: 15-21)

Once again, the Ark of the Covenant (an object found inside the Tabernacle) is instrumental in leading the nation into the warfare necessary to take the Promised Land by force.
