Revelation 21:22 “And I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God, the Almighty, and the Lamb, are its temple.
The tabernacle is no longer a place, but a Person. Jesus Christ was and is the perfect “meeting place” of God and man. He was God incarnate who took on the “tent” of human flesh and walked among us. Now, we not only worship Christ, we also worship in Christ.
Jesus made this clear to the Samaritan woman at the well in the Gospel of John as she spoke of a place where the Jews worship. “…you people say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.” She knew that Samaritans were banned from worshiping there.
So Jesus removed the restriction and welcomed her worship through an intense relationship encounter. To her heart’s delight, she now had a living Person instead of an off-limits place. To our heart’s delight, there is nothing now that stops us from tabernacle worship.
