I really like how these verses so perfectly represent the Gospel:
I know it sort of tells you what I’m going to be getting at in the last part there, in verse 9, but I’ll still explain it as best I can.
(which is symbolic for the present age). According to this arrangement, gifts and sacrifices are offered that cannot perfect the conscience of the worshiper,
The first part of this tent, is the place were all the ritual sacrifices go on… In the bible, a tent can be representative of the tent we live in today (our bodies). We can try to be good, we can routinely read our bibles, we can pray, we can go to church, that doesn’t make us Christians. What makes us Christians, is the fact that we know Jesus as our friend and saviour, we have a personal relationship with him and believe and have faith that he did die and rise again for us! And that’s where the second part of the tent comes in, as long as this present age in ourselves, this present age of sin that we have, is destroyed, we can’t enter the second part of the tent, the part were the priest gives an offering for us, or, where Jesus lays down his life for us.
So, in summary; there are two parts, one, the second part, cannot be accessed until we destroy the first part, our flesh, our sin. And the only way that is possible, is by accepting Jesus as your personal friend and savour.
You are loved!
