Exodus 39* The priests' garments. (1-31) The tabernacle completed.(32-43)1-31 The priests' garments were rich and splendid. The churchin its infancy was thus taught by shadows of good things tocome; but the substance is Christ, and the grace of the gospel.Christ is our great High Priest. When he undertook the work ofour redemption, he put on the clothes of service, he arrayedhimself with the gifts and graces of the Spirit, girded himselfwith resolution to go through the undertaking, took charge ofall God's spiritual Israel, laid them near his heart, engravedthem on the palms of his hands, and presented them to hisFather. And he crowned himself with holiness to the Lord,consecrating his whole undertaking to the honour of his Father'sholiness. True believers are spiritual priests. The clean linenwith which all their clothes of service must be made, is therighteousness of saints, #Re 19:8|. 32-43 The tabernacle was a type or emblem of Jesus Christ. Asthe Most High dwelt visibly within the sanctuary, even on theark, so did he reside in the human nature and tabernacle of hisdear Son; in Christ dwelt all the fulness of the Godhead bodily,#Col 2:9|. The tabernacle was a symbol of every real Christian.In the soul of every true follower of the Saviour the Fatherdwells, the object of his worship, and the author of hisblessings. The tabernacle also typified the church of theRedeemer. The meanest and the mightiest are alike dear to theFather's love, freely exercised through faith in Christ. Thetabernacle was a type and emblem of the heavenly temple, #Re21:3|. What, then, will be the splendour of His appearance, whenthe cloud shall be withdrawn, and his faithful worshippers shallsee him as he is!
