Egypt Had No Sanctuary

The tabernacle was Jehovah’s dwelling place among His redeemed people. The twelve tribes encamped

around it, and the cloud abode above it. Here it was that Sacrifice, Priesthood, Divine worship, and Diety’s

order began. There was no sanctuary in Egypt. Redemption and separation had to be known before there could

be a dwelling place for God or a place of worship and service for man.

The tabernacle was a shadow of good things to come. It pointed onward to Christ. Its sacrifices were

indications of the one Perfect Sacrifice. Of course, only in Christ do we have a perfect Sacrifice of eternal value

and a High Priest who abideth and liveth forever.
