In this post, we journey inside the Inner Court of the Tabernacle 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
This message shows how the Inner Court of the Tabernacle and Temple, also called the Holy Place, is a picture of our walk with God.
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 Tabernacle 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.
The Greek word for milk here is “gala” and Strong’s Concordance 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 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.
