In Hebrews 9:1-10 the writer compares the tabernacle of the first covenant to the reality of the second covenant. The aim is not to analyze the structure of the tabernacle in detail, but rather to show that under the first covenant the separation from God remains as is seen in the curtain between the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies. But through Christ, the child of God enters into His presence, to enjoy the inheritance set aside for him in Christ.


This sermon looks at the test God gives his people is what eventually will be codified in the 4th commandment. Ex. 16:4-5 sets the stage this way: how Israel responds to God's call to rest on the 7th day will indicate how they will obey all His other commandments. Pastor Gleason makes application for today and urges the church to a careful consideration of God's day for resting.
