The furniture’s in the Outer court were,

1.         THE BRAZEN ALTAR

2.         LAVER

3.         THE SCREENS

“And thou shalt make an altar of shittim wood, five cubits long, and five cubits broad; the altar shall be foursquare: and the height thereof shall be three cubits.” (Exodus 27:1)

1. THE BRAZEN ALTAR

  • SHITTIM

 ALTAR[gn_pullquote align=”left”]This Shittim tree shows us that the Messiah has becomeMa “Human” (has become a tree of life). Lord only made Him to grew on earth.[/gn_pullquote]

Cornwall a man of God said that In this Altar (Now the Cross) number “5” signifies the Divine Grace of the Lord to all the nations.

This Altar was made of Shittim wood (Acacia wood) (Exodus 27:1). This thorny tree was seen in Mount Sinai. Saints say that inner part of this tree will be dark red in colour with many strips in it, and is very strong, indestructible wood also brings forth sweet savour. This Shittim tree shows us that the Messiah has become a “Human” (has become a tree of life). Lord only made Him to grew on earth. (Genesis 2:9)

(Isaiah 53:2) Messiah must become a Man (WOOD) before He can become our Sacrifice. Though Jesus has become a tree like us He is the “Tree of Life” (Genesis 2:9; Revelation 2:7; Mathew 13:32; Luke 13:19; Exodus 15:25). Only to remind us about this Jesus has said these words when He carried the Cross,

“For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?” (Luke 23:31)

  •  BRONZE SHEETS

BRONZE SHEETS

[gn_pullquote align=”right”]This Bronze sheet which covered the shittim wood is an ensamples for us that likely Jesus carried the sins of this world.[/gn_pullquote]

The altar which is made of Shittim wood was covered by the bronze sheets. “Bronze” signifies the JUDGEMENT OF GOD. This Bronze sheet which covered the shittim wood is an ensamples for us that likely Jesus carried the sins of this world (BRUISES FOR OUR INIQUITIES, CHASTISMENT FOR OUR PEACE) (Isaiah 53:11,12; John 1:29; I Peter 2:24)

  • GRATE OF NETWORK OF BRASS

[gn_pullquote align=”left”]When Jesus was hanging on the Cross, Behold! Bible says the Holy Fire (HIS SPIRIT) which burned within Him did many miracles.[/gn_pullquote]

Behold! The flames of fire were burning in this bronze grates inside the Altar.  This grate was kept in the midst of the Altar (Exodus 27:4,5). The fire will not be on the ALTAR but in it. Is not this ALTAR a type of Cross? When Jesus was hanging on the Cross, Behold! Bible says the Holy Fire (HIS SPIRIT) which burned within Him did many miracles (Mathew 27:50-54).

Also Bible says, Even today to shake this world and the skies above the Holy fire is been sent to us from Him. Yes. Because now the Holy fire is been sent “Seven Fold stronger” to you, your family and O! to everybody, you really are a gifted one! Hallelujah!

  • HORNS

[gn_pullquote align=”right”]Friends whoever has offered themselves as an offering in this Altar are truly the “LION OF GOD”.[/gn_pullquote]

There will four horns in the four corners of this Altar (Exodus 27:2). The offerings (YOU and I) will be tied up in these horns. “God is the LORD, which hath showed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.” (Psalms 118:27). That’s the reason Paul said as,

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service” (Romans 12:1)

In Hebrews “ARIEL” is the word used for the place where the living offerings are tied up with the horns. “ARIEL” means “LION OF GOD”. Friends whoever has offered themselves as an offering in this Altar are truly the “LION OF GOD” (Numbers 23:24, Genesis 49:9). A place where the whelp of the LION of JUDAH coucheth, there no one shall rouse this whelp up (Genesis 49:9). This offering were tied “Daily” with four ropes which are, “Rope of faith” (Joshua 2:15), a Rope of Love (Hosea 11:4), a Rope of Spirit (Ecclesiastes 12:6) and a Rope of Trinity (TRIUNE GOD) (Fellowshipping with God in supplication, conversation in prayer) (Ecclesiastes 4:12). (Psalms 118:27) Is this showing us, Daily we are been crucified on the Cross with Jesus Christ to the world and to worldly pleasures (Galatians 2:20; 6:14; 5:24). The fire which is burning in the altar never affects these Ropes.

It means dying daily to self. It means allowing the OLD man (within us) to be sacrificed on the ALTAR CONTINUALLY! MOST IMPORTANTLY IT’S THE ONLY PLACE WHERE SATAN CANNOT TOUCH YOU AND WHERE SIN SHALL NOT HAVE DOMINION OVER YOU (Romans 6:14)

Is this not Really a Scale Model of Heaven? (Hebrews 9:23; 8:5). Likely we can see the Whelps of the lion is been tied up with Jesus Christ the Lion of Judah (Revelation 5:6) in this Altar by His Seven Spirits! Be bound with the LAMB of GOD and found couching with HIM before the THRONE OF GOD. Hallelujah! The Mighty one of GOD is SHUT IN WITH THE LAMB OF GOD.
