Tonight, 12/6/2017, Lord willing, I will be preaching on The Table of Shewbread from the books of Exodus and Leviticus. The Table is a showpiece, which reveals both Christ and ourselves to God. It is a manifestation of Christ's work for his people and also a manifestation of our work of Christ.
We are fed by the bread from Heaven, which is Christ, the antitype of the bread on the Table of Shewbread. Read John 10.
The acacia wood, from which the table is made, is a reminder to us of the endurance and even the eternality of Jesus Christ. He cannot be corrupted, neither was any sin in him. This wood, I understand, grew where other woods would not grow, and the wood also had thorns, which typifies the sufferings of Christ and even our own persecutions in this life as we live for him.
The bread, being 12 loaves, represents all the tribes of Israel, as they represent the apple of God's eye as he watches over them, sees their works, chastens them, and forgives them. He loves his children with an everlasting love.
The wine on the table was not drunk by the priests, for it was forbidden them to drink wine there. It is understood by some that the wine was poured at the foot of the Table of Shewbread.
New bread was placed on the table each day, which typifies our being given fresh mercies and supplies of grace every day as we live for the Lord.
