Jerusalem Above (original) and Jerusalem Below (copy): Temple Above (original) and Temple Below (copy). With art, the original is prized rather than the copy. We should prize the work of Jesus in the Temple Above – this is the original salvation or religion!
* Holy God, this day is Yours as each one is. Please help us today to bear Your Name well.
“By this the Holy Spirit indicates that the way into the holy places is not yet opened as long as the first section is still standing …”
God has great intent in the creation of the tabernacle under Moses, and then the temple under Solomon.
These copies and shadows, they point us to Jesus!
“… But by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption.”
There is importance in the sacrificial system (though it was a poor copy), even if only for one thing – That it points us to Jesus.
His is the sacrifice that matters.
He is the Lamb slain from before the foundation of the world.
Through Him (and Him alone) we obtain redemption for our sins.
This is our King, our Lord and Saviour!
* Father God,
Thank You for Your word, both the old and new testaments.
Please help us as we walk through Your word each day, please help us to see Jesus.
