Meditating on our Meeting

"There I will meet with the children of Israel... sanctified by My glory... that I may dwell among them: I am the LORD their God" (Exodus 29:43,46).  "Glory is great in Thy salvation" (Psalm 21:5).  "The way of life is above to the wise" (Proverbs 15:24).  "The Lord Himself shall descend... and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  then we... shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord" (1 Thessalonians 4:16,17).   

The tabernacle was the place  
Where God declared that He would meet,
For there He glorified His grace,  
Foreshadowing His work complete. 

The glory of the Lord's salvation
Portrayed in offerings sacrificed  
Displayed then to His congregation
The sanctifying work of Christ. 

The tabernacle on display  
Before the congregation's eyes
Declared the price our Lord would pay
To save the souls He sanctifies. 

Lord, as we richly meditate  
On tabernacle types You share,
Our hearts still more anticipate
When we shall meet You in the air.
