In this post, we journey inside the Inner Court of the Tabernacle of Moses and explore what this section of the tabernacle (or temple in later years) means for the Christian!


It is possible for people of faith to see how their walk with God mirrors the various sections of the tabernacle, and here we will be looking at the Holy Place and what its furnishing represent, how they were used and what it means for the believer.

The Inner Court of the Tabernacle of Moses

This message shows how the Inner Court of the Tabernacle of Moses (and later, the Temple), also called the Holy Place, is a picture of our walk with GodInner Court of the Tabernacle & the Christian 2.

If you feel as though you’re stuck in your walk, I hope you will know that God keeps it simple! There is no need to fear going deeper with Him!


You don’t need to be a Biblical scholar! It is about relationship!


As in most relationships, you learn more about each other as you spend time together! God wants us to grow in our relationship with Him and there are ways we can do that and the Inner Court of the TabernacleInner Court of the Tabernacle & the Christian 4 is a great picture of those ways!



From Milk to Meat

1 Corinthians 3:1-3

Brothers and sisters, I could not address you as people who live by the Spirit but as people who are still worldly—mere infants in Christ.  I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans? NIV


The Greek word for milk here is “gala”  and Strong’s ConcordanceInner Court of the Tabernacle & the Christian 6 defines it as a metaphor for “the less difficult Christian truths” (Strongs)




We need to move past our infancy in Christ and take steps toward our growth! And the Inner Court of the Tabernacle of Moses is a picture of that growth as we progress from one stage to another.




As babies, we are on milk for a time but then the time comes for us to start eating food. God wants no less. Our goal should always be growth!




The Inner Court of the Tabernacle shows us three furnishings that represent our deeper walk with God.


If you have not yet listened to the audio message on the Outer Court of the Tabernacle, I would recommend visiting that post first and then coming back here so that you get the full picture of the Tabernacle.

    Hi Diane! What a wonderful addition to your blog. Yes, audio because I can listen in the background while I do other tasks online. I’d love to know what software you use to upload it to your site. Blessings to you! Sharing on Pinterest and Twitter.

    This was so interesting, thanks for sharing. 🙂 I love the symbolism God uses! All these tiny details God puts into His instructions, so far before Jesus was even born, that all point directly to Jesus, make His life, death & resurrection so undeniable.


    The symbolism is so beautiful! I really like the symbolism of leavening/sin and the shew bread.

    Thank you so much! We or should I say the majority of Christians of the Western world really have no clue, I have understood the sanctity of Communion, but not to this degree – oh how lightly it is taken in our churches! I can say this because I have been involved in several different denominations and visited numerous others. To date I have not found one that really displays the Holiness of Communion. The explanation of the Menorah and the Altar of Incense I knew. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
