Come Boldly into Jesus’ Presence
“On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, and repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old.”
The prophetic passage above speaks of our time. The interesting feature about the tabernacle of David in contrast to the tabernacle of Moses is that it had no veil separating man and God. David could go directly to worship the Lord before the ark of the covenant.
When our Lord Jesus died on the cross and cried out, “It is finished!” (John 19:30), the Bible tells us that at that precise moment “the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom” (Matt. 27:51), opening the way into the Holy of Holies! Through Christ, there is no longer any separation between God and man. Whosoever believes in Jesus shall never perish. Hallelujah!
David’s tabernacle: David and
the priests could praise God openly
before the ark of the covenant.
Isn’t it wonderful to know that when you are in Christ, all your sins are forgiven, and that you can come boldly to His throne of grace to worship Him? God has raised up the tabernacle of David with a new generation of worshipers who are not afraid of God and not afraid to draw near and receive His promise of divine protection. None of us can ever do enough to merit God’s protection, but praise be to God, we are all qualified by the blood of Jesus Christ!
On the night of the first Passover, when the children of Israel applied the blood of an innocent lamb on their doorposts, God said to them, “Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt” (Exod. 12:13). Jesus became that innocent lamb that was sacrificed for us when He shed His blood and died on the cross.
Today, as believers in Christ, His blood protects us. I’m believing with you that all evil, all destruction, and all danger shall pass over you and not come near you and your family. Let us come boldly to worship our Lord in the tabernacle of David where there is no veil. Come boldly under His wings and worship the Lord daily with the prayer of protection. His precious blood has been shed at the mercy seat for our total redemption, protection, and salvation.
Psalm 91 was written for worship. Come boldly into our Lord’s presence daily and pray the prayer of protection. There is no veil, no failure, and no shame that separates you from God today because of our Lord’s finished work at Calvary. Come before your heavenly Father, worship Him, and receive His protection for you and your entire household!
