spiritjournals.com – The Tabernacle of Moses (Much of this resource comes from a book, “The Tabernacle of Moses” by Kevin Conner which I read years ago. It is a priceless gift how God reveals Himself in deeper ways through His Word the longer I walk with Him.)
God’s pattern in the tabernacle was one entrance (gate). When the Israelites entered through the gate they would find salvation, forgiveness of sins and fellowship with God.
“If the offering is a burnt offering from the herd, he is to offer a male without defect. He must present it at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting so that it will be acceptable to the LORD. He is to lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it will be accepted on his behalf to make atonement for him. He is to slaughter the young bull before the LORD, and then Aaron's sons the priests shall bring the blood and sprinkle it against the altar on all sides at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.”
“Therefore Jesus said again, “I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep. …I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture.”
John 10:7 & 9
“Jesus answered, I am the way, the truth, and the life; No one comes to the Father except through me.”
“Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him…”
Not only is Jesus the entrance, He is also the sacrifice by which I obtain atonement. In Him I find the source of my eternal salvation.
Jesus, thank you for being my provision, the living entrance into eternal salvation.
