The Fine Linen

images6Exodus 27:18 The length of the court shall be one hundred cubits, the width fifty throughout, and the height five cubits, made of fine woven linen, and its sockets of bronze.

The fence or walls were made of fine linen sheets around the Tabernacle. The word for these walls, yeriah, was the same word that the scribes used to described the different pages of the Torah scroll, which were the writings of Moses.

Therefore, could we not say that the whole of the tabernacle and it’s court was encased in the Word of God, the pages of God’s scroll? The Word of God is our boundary.

The word for linen is shesh which means 6. It was said that it was 6 strands of thread woven over 6 strands of thread making it very thin. It separated those on the outside from the those on the inside and yet you could still see what was going on through it. You saw them through the white linen.

God our Father sees us through Jesus Christ. Not for the filth we are but through the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Paul tells us to put on Jesus Christ (Romans 13:11; Galatians 3:27)

Revelation 19:14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. We are described as wearing fine linen in heaven.
