Exodus 25- Communion with God

Thou shalt also make a table of shittim wood: two cubits shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof. And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make thereto a crown of gold round about. And thou shalt make unto it a border of an hand breadth round about, and thou shalt make a golden crown to the border thereof round about. And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in the four corners that are on the four feet thereof. Exodus 25:23-26

Here we see God instructed Moses to build a table to display the showbread for God. Does this remind you of anything? I believe this is a foreshadow of Communion, the sign that Jesus said would institute the New Covenant (Luke 22) Again everything we see in this Exodus story, and everything we see in the Tabernacle are foreshadows of Christ

Why a table? Because God wants to have Communion (Fellowship) with You, just as He wanted fellowship with the Israelites, he wants fellowship with the Gentile believers. Jesus is about a personal relationship with God, not a religion, fellowship with your God and Lord

And thou shalt make the dishes thereof, and spoons thereof, and covers thereof, and bowls thereof, to cover withal: of pure gold shalt thou make them. Exodus 25:29

This commandment was to make all the dishes pure gold, including pitchers , to pour out drink offerings to God. First the symbolism of pure gold showing the purity of the Sinless Lamb of God. Second as Paul told us in Philippians 2, Jesus poured himself or emptied himself taking on the form of a servant, for our sins

And thou shalt set upon the table shewbread before me alway. Exodus 25:30

The table with the Show Bread (The body of Christ) was to be displayed to God at all times. This is why I believe Communion is a very sacred act, that should be performed daily as in Communion with God. The proclamation or sign of the New Covenant is Communion

And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you. Luke 22:19-20

The bread is symbolic of the body of Christ, given to us as an atonement for our sins. The drink offering, the wine, is symbolic of Jesus blood shed for our sins. This cup is the New Covenant, the table of Show Bread is a foreshadow of the New Covenant and Christ Amen!
