The Perfect Sacrifice (Exodus 37:9)


Exodus chapter thirty seven nine. The chair of them spread out their wings. Above overshadowing the mercy seat with their wings with faces one to another toward the mercy seat where the faces of the of them so this is a verse describing the construction of the arc. And how this part of the tabernacle where god's presence would dwell among his people and there's so much we could talk about here in the construction of the arc and and the way specifically the ark of the covenant was in the innermost part of the tabernacle in a place. That only the high priests could come once a year and he would come to make tone meant to offer sacrifices for the people's sin at this mercy seat which is why so. Now i wanna read from the new testament. Because hebrews chapter nine talks specifically about the ark of the covenant and what we just read the chairman of glory so he was shepherd nine verse five above. It were the chairman of glory overshadowing the mercy seat so this picture that we read about an exodus was foreshadowing. What would happen all mentally. When jesus would come and he would make mercy possible for you and i to enter into the presence of god hebrews chapter nine verse eleven to say but when christ appeared as a high priest of the good things that have come then through the greater and more perfect tent not made with hands that is not of this creation. Not like what was happening in exodus. He entered once for all into the holy places nod by the means the blood of goats and calves which is what would be sacrificed their blood and that picture in the tabernacle and the ark of the covenant there but by means of his own blood thus securing and redemption
