The Table of Shewbread


What does the table of shewbread represent? The earthly sanctuary served "unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of Elohim when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed thee in the mount." Hebrews 8:5. In the Torah the wording is better, "look that thou make them after the pattern, which thou wast caused to see in the mount." (in vision) Exodus 25:40 margin

The table of shewbread was made of wood and overlaid with gold. Just as YAHSHUA had human nature, yet He was a partaker of the divine nature, in other words, He was overlaid with divinity. The table was located on the north side of the first apartment (Ex 40:22). The Psalmist declared that Mt. Zion in heaven is "on the sides of the north" along with "the city of our Elohim." Psalm 48:1,2

This is the same Mount Zion that John saw in vision, where he beheld the 144,000; and crowns of gold on their foreheads, with the inscription "Holiness to YAHUWAH." Exodus 28:36. John sees them "before the throne of Elohim." Revelation 14:3,5

This is the place that Lucifer had planned to exalt his throne above the stars (angels) of Elohim, "upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north." Isaiah 14:13

The table of shewbread had two crowns on it (Ex 25: 24,25), which show a duel Kingship. YAHUSHUA was a priest upon his throne, a priest and a king. "YAHUWAH saith unto my Master, Sit Thou at My right hand, until I make mine enemies Thy footstool", and further "YAHUWAH hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek." Psalm 110:1,4

This shows that YAHUSHUA was not himself Melchizek, or He could not be after his order. The unique thing about Melchizedek, is that he was "a priest of El Elyon." But he was also "king of Salem." Genesis 14:18. Melchizedek was a priest and a king. YAHUSHUA when returning to heaven after His death, and resurrection sat down at the right hand of Eloah, and was a priest upon His throne (Zechariah 6:13).

The two stacks (Lev. 24:6) of shewbread also represent the Father and the Son, YAHUSHUA said, "I am the bread of life." John 6:35,48
