TRUTH: We know from Scripture that the Tabernacle which God instructed Moses to build was a copy of the real one in heaven. This is absolutely true. However a copy is just that – a copy. Still, God is serious about what goes on in His Temple, His Church, His Tabernacle, His Home. He is deadly serious. Ask Nadab and Abihu who took strange fire into the Tabernacle at the very first service. Then ask Ananias and Sapphira how serious God is about His church. He is that way because He is from eternity and Holy. The picture of True and Continuous worship in Heaven is mind-boggling and nothing close to the sometimes charade we put on down here.
Twice in two verses, the worshipers in heaven honor God who “lives forever and ever”. Jesus said in John 4:23 “the Father is looking for true worshipers…” This is an example of the TYPE of worship He means. There is nothing but awe, power, reverence, majesty and surrender to the King in the Throne Room of Heaven in the Heavenly Tabernacle! One day in the next 50 years or less, we will be in the Presence of this same Throne Room, where we too will called to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. Let us prepare our spiritual hearts from now for this reality.
