Monday: God as Architect — 6 Comments

  1. Yes, God is an architect but I don’t think the sanctuary was his greatest achievement. I believe the design and creation of life was.

    In this world of sin we always have a tendency to worship the creation rather than the creator. And when an object such as the sanctuary is presented to us we usually view it as a piece of architecture rather than the object lesson it was intended to be. We build gorgeous cathedrals and consider the outward beauty before thinking about why they were built in the first place.

    As beautiful as the earthy sanctuary was with all the precious metals and fabrics if we miss what those things represent and how they relate to one another then we will have missed the whole meaning of the sanctuary altogether.

    To me the singularly most important thing about the sanctuary is that it is about ministry. It is not about a building but about how Christ is ministering to us and our relationship to Him in this dreadful world of sin. I feel we need to get away from the literalizing of everything in scripture and begin to see the spiritual side of things. That doesn’t mean turning the Bible into one big allegory but it does mean trying to recognize and understand symbolism better. It was a problem with the Jews (Jn 6:32-66) and I suspect it is a problem with us as well.

  2. The beauty not only in outside part, but principle inner. When we worship God we are making part of the beauty of the universe.

    ''Worship God in the beauty of His holiness

  3. God planned every detail of the sanctuary, and left nothing undone. This further testifies to me that His sacrifice, His redemption of us is complete, and there is nothing left to chance.I can be fully assured He will recreate a new heart in me, as long as i am surrendered to His will.

  4. God through His flawless design of the Sanctuary indirectly leads/informs Israel to the flawless salvation plan. In response we ought to focus on building that relationship so we can be more and more like our Heavenly Father.

  5. The description of the sanctuary is very awesome. If the earthly sanctuary was so magnificent like that, how about the heavenly sanctuary that our Lord Jesus Christ has been preparing for over 2000 years since he resurrected? I know I have my weaknesses that am struggling with but my prayer has always been....Dear God, I know and acknowledge my weaknesses and my prayer is that may you help so that when the roll shall be called upon yonder, let my name and all those who have waited patiently for your second coming be recorded in heaven. Honestly God, I would love to be among the people who will worship you in that magnificent heavenly sanctuary.
    From another dimension, since Paul notes that our bodies are actually a living sanctuary, imagine how God would like to see us treating them magnifiently in the way we eat, dress, treat our bodies etc.
