Now Paul was going into sacrifices other than those on the Day of Atonement, even though that seemed to be foremost in his mind, generally speaking. “Carnal ordinances” were earthly ordinances. (“Carnal” is based on a Greek word meaning “flesh.”) Since these ordinances were ordained of God, they could in no way be sinful. We should not cast aspersions on the Law, for God instituted it. The Law was perfect, but we are not justified by the deeds of the Law. The Law was imposed on the Jews “until the time of reformation,” that is, until the change to the gospel dispensation, when Christ opened up a new and living way, bringing life and immortality to light. The old Tabernacle was supplanted by a new tabernacle, which, in reality, is spiritual. The three tabernacles, listed in chronological sequence, are (1) the archaic tabernacle, (2) the Mosaic Tabernacle, and (3) the antitypical (or spiritual) tabernacle.
This is a very comprehensive subject. But to break it down to the very basics, the Tabernacle shows the path of the Christian.
Enter the Gate (Jesus is the Way, Truth, and the Life), Come to the Brazen Altar (recognize Jesus’ sacrifice, and present our bodies a living sacrifice in God’s service Rom. 12:1), come to the Laver (which pictures Baptism), come to the Holy, (Christ in you the hope of glory) partake of the shewbread (Word), provided light by the candle stick (truth, supplied by the holy Spirit), offer incense on the altar (prayer), and finally enter Most Holy (the presence of God, Heaven itself).

God tells us that Jesus our Ransom will be mediator of a New Covenant to be testified in due time. As Christians, Jesus is our Advocate and not our Mediator, because through him and by him we have a standing with God and are not at odds. When will this New Covenant take effect? How many covenants are talked about in the Scriptures and when are they applicable? This booklet takes a look at the various covenants and also the sin offerings of the Day of Atonement and their true significance.
