The Biblical Tabernacle and the 4 Gospels Cont.

Exodus 27: 9-16
We covered the tabernacle as a type of Jesus Christ. It's outward plainness, but the beauty of the curtains made the way into this building. What the curtain colors represented: Blue: Heaven, Purple: Royalty, Red: Redemption or salvation if you will and fine twined Linen: Righteousness.
These curtains were set on 4 pillars and sockets=the 4 Gospels of which the way to salvation, righteousness, to God and heaven hang on. The gate, the way to enter.
  1. Matthew is the gospel of the king: this is the purple way into the tabernacle. If you want to reach God and be part of his royal family you need to be born into the King's family-be his seed.
  2. Mark is the gospel of the suffering servant. the red curtains stands for the cross of suffering this servant bore for us. the crimson blood he shed.
  3. Luke is the gospel of the Son of Man. Jesus Christ was the only righteous man. through his righteousness we become righteous. this is the white linen of the curtain. And
  4. John: Jesus Christ the Son of God-Blue-Our connection to heaven. He came down from Heaven for us.

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.)
