The Biblical Tabernacle and the 4 Gospels

Exodus 27: 9-16
The outer covering of the Tabernacle in the wilderness was of ugly non attractive badger skins all the way around except for the gate. See our scripture reference.
Isiah 53:2. the tabernacle was a picture of the savior Jesus Christ: "He hath no form or comeliness and when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire him."
All except the gate: His life and inward beauty. Matthew 7:13: Enter ye in at the strait gate. John 10:1. He is the only door. There was no other way into the tabernacle but through this gate.. any one that tried to get in, or tries to get in any other way is a thief and robber.
This gate had four colors. these colors had 4 meanings and each represented one of the four gospels.
  1. Blue=Heaven
  2. Purple = Royalty
  3. Scarlet=Redemption
  4. Fine twined Linen=Righteousness
These 4 hung as a beautiful curtain which was the only way into the tabernacle. These hung on 4 pillars and 4 sockets which represent 4 Gospels: (am out of room so will continue in a following blog.)

Love dipping my mind, hands and feet into about anything that is pure clean and crisp. 5 kids, some out of the nest and married, some at home. Live on a small rural farm with 2 dogs: one poodle and one boogle. 17 chickens so far, but eggs are setting. One guinea fowl. 2 adorable pekin ducks. 1 beautiful goose and a pond load of fish. But my name is not Old McDonald. Married for 26 years to my sweetheart.
