Lesley, I love how you point out that the Israelites’ access to God, though limited, was an act of grace. And how now, through Jesus, we all have unlimited access to our heavenly Father. What a privilege!

I’m so glad everything changed! I’m thankful to live on this side of the torn veil. Thanks for sharing this, Lesley.

Lesley, I lov how you connected the tabernacle to Jesus’ time on earth and to present day in terms of having relationship with Jesus.It is pretty amazing that God.made a way for people to come to him, to come into relationship with Him. And the tabernacle ties into that.

Beautiful words, Lesley!

This is such a great explanation of the tabernacle. Your post parallels a fiction book I’m reading right now by Lynn Austin. The good news is that Jesus, as our sacrificial lamb, has given us the all access pass that I know I don’t always deserve. Thank you for your wisdom.

Dear Lesley, I remember when I learned about the curtain being torn in two, and that it was too tall and heavy for one person to do it. It’s such a great visual of the Lord giving us an access pass. And what a terrific story you shared to give us another example. Thanks and blessing!

I never before thought of God’s rules for the temple as His grace. I thought only of the rules. And although God’s presence was in the Tabernacle, He still seemed distant to many. How thankful I am to have all access so I can boldly approach my Lord.

And doesn’t it increase your appreciation knowing some of the detailed backstory that began centuries before Jesus?!

Yes, I love the truth that God has broken down the barrier, and we have full access to Him!
