A REVELATION OF....... THE TABERNACLE OF DAVID - Part 10

DAVID - A TYPE OF THE FUTURE

 

 

INTRODUCTION

David was way ahead of his time! He broke the rules of the Old Covenant and in doing so, provides a picture of what we have available to us today - if only we will take advantage of it.

Let's find out!

DAVID - A TYPE OF THE FUTURE

 

and David sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings before the LORD. (2 Samuel 6:17b)

In doing this, David broke all the rules. Even priests had earlier died for unauthorized entry into the presence of God in the Holy of Holies! (Nadab and Abihu: Leviticus 10:1-2) Yet here we have David, one not of the priestly line, making sacrifices before the Lord and not being 'zapped'!

Amazing! Something was different with Him. Let's investigate.
 

 

THE PROBLEM

 

We are taught in our churches that Jesus did it all and we are now free to move into the presence of God. While this is true 'positionally', we are not so well informed of the need to enter His presence 'experientially', through holy living. Therefore righteousness, effectively discipleship, is not accorded a high priority in the church today. 

 

THE LESSON

 

King David had a spirit different to other men.

The principle of the blessing for a 'different spirit' was earlier established with Caleb, who, along with Joshua, was able to enter the Promised Land, while the remainder of his generation died in the desert.
 

 

Numbers 14:24

 

 

David was of a similar spirit, or heart. One of wholehearted commitment to the Lord! 

 

Acts 13:22

 

 

Of course, David too was in the line of Jesus. 

 

Acts 13:23

 

 

David did not go before the Lord with incense (symbolic of worship), as Nadab and Abihu did, but rather, with sacrifices of blood, of repentance, of humility before the Almighty Lord of the universe. We do well not to forget. David was well prepared, both physically, as was required in those days of physical sacrifice, and spiritually, for he had a godly heart.

For 450 years the Ark had been hidden behind the veil in Moses Tabernacle. But for this brief period of 40 years, because of the heart of one man, all the people could view the home of the presence of the Lord.

Today, the presence of the Lord is viewed by the world through those followers of Jesus who reflect the image of Jesus.
 

 

Colossians 1:27

 

 

The image of Christ isn’t something we receive at conversion but is progressively developed throughout our lives, as Paul continued. 

 

Colossians 1:28-9

 

 

As a dedicated follower of Jesus we are to be transformed, not merely changed a little! 

 

Romans 12:2

 

 

Those who know God's will and do it, are those with a David heart. 

 

Hebrews 5:9

 

 

King David, acting for the moment as both King and Priest, is a picture of the fully sold out disciples who will form the body of 'kings and priests' of the end time church. 

 

Revelation 5:6-10

 

END TIME CHURCH TRAIT 10: A people with ongoing access to the presence of God.

 

 

<i>NEXT WEEK</i> A REVELATION OF... THE TABERNACLE OF DAVID - Part 11 - THE BLESSING OF OBEDIENCE

 

When it comes to understanding 'blessing' today, there is ongoing confusion between the Old Testament and the New.

This week we look at the blessing promised to the end time 'bride', as revealed through David's Tabernacle.
 

 

 

The relationship that David had with his Lord is something I aspire to. To be said that one is 'a (wo)man after My own heart' is surely the ultimate in God's praise.

As we submit and obey the Lord, even though like David, we aren't perfect, so our heart and His, will become one.

This is the call of the end time church, to become fully in tune with our Lord.
