The Tabernacle of David
A Study of How the Psalms Define Prophetic Numerology
What, exactly, does the tabernacle of David represent? In the new covenant there is only one mediator between God and man. This is the Lord Jesus Christ, the living Word of God, and he is presently seated upon a heavenly throne, high above all things (Psalm 138:2).
The ark is a representation of Jesus Christ. It is also a representation of how our reconciliation with God the Father is made possible. The tabernacle of David depicts the heavenly realm touching the earth. It is a living, prophetic parable of how we may come into a direct and personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ without intermediary clergy or religious, legalistic ritual. As a result, we may become registered as citizens of heaven (Hebrews 12:18-24).
