The Tabernacle Reflects God #14

The Tabernacle Reflects God #14

In Chapters 25 – 26 of the Bible, the Lord tells Moses to make a “sanctuary” for God so that He can “dwell in their midst.” God then proceeds to tell Moses the specifications for the Ark of the Covenant. Much like the Ark of the Covenant, tabernacles today are made from precious metals such as gold. Some are even veiled in similarity with the Ark of the Covenant.

Thoughts: Therefore, the tabernacle represents something that God wanted to exist, the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark of the Covenant held God’s presence for the Israelites and now the tabernacle holds God’s presence in the Eucharist. By knowing that God desired to have something like a tabernacle to hold Him, we know more about God’s desires and therefore know more about Him as a Being. In addition, the tabernacle’s beauty reflects God’s Beauty. The ornateness reflects God’s immeasurable worth, importance, and supremacy.
