Table of Showbread Each Sabbath, 
twelve loaves of unleavened bread 
(showbread) covered with frankincense 
were placed on the golden table. 

The showbread provided sustenance for 
the priests. It was renewed regularly 
just as the Word of God should be 
renewed in our hearts. 

Jesus is the bread of life and His Word 
is also the bread from heaven. Eternal 
life can be found through His Word. 

John 6:35 - “And Jesus said unto 
them, I am the bread of life: he that 
cometh to me shall never hunger; and 
he that believeth on me shall never 
thirst. ” 

John 6:51 - “lam the living bread 
which came down from heaven: if any 
man eat of this bread, he shall live for 
ever: and the bread that I will give is 
my flesh, which I will give for the life of 
the world. ” 

Matthew 5:44 - “But I say unto you, 
Love your enemies, bless them that 
curse you, do good to them that hate 
you, and pray for them which 
despitefully use you, and persecute 

Prayer at the Table of Showbread

strength it provides.

Golden Altar of Incense - The altar 
where the priest offered the sweet 
smelling sacrifices; a type of drawing 
nigh unto God in prayer. 


The incense was offered daily, just as 
we are to pray daily and without 
ceasing. 

The fire for the altar of incense had to 
come from the altar of sacrifice. We 
must stop at the altar of repentance 
before attempting to approach God in 
prayer and worship. 

Psalm 141:2 - “Let my prayer be set 
forth before thee as incense; and the 
lifting up of my hands as the evening 
sacrifice. ” 

John 4:24 - “God is a Spirit: and they 
that worship him must worship* him in 
spirit and in truth. ” 

*proskuneo (Greek): to kiss the 
hand; to fall upon the knees and 
touch the ground with the forehead as 
an expression of profound reverence.

THE HOLY OF HOLIES - Only one 
man (the High Priest) was permitted to 
enter the Most Holy Place once a year on 
the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur). 

The room called the Holy of Holies 
represents the Holy Ghost experience. 

It was the closest that man could get to 
God here on earth. 

The Veil that separated the Holy Place 
and the Holy of Holies represented the 
barrier between God and man that 
existed before the death of Jesus. 

When Jesus died on the cross, the veil 
was miraculously torn in two. This 
miracle made salvation available to 
“whosoever will.” 

The tom veil symbolizes the ability of 
every believer to approach God through 
the death of Jesus.

linen robe. We, too, must lose our wood and gold representing the humanity

cherubims, thou art the God, even thou 
alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: 
thou hast made heaven and earth. ” 


Hebrews 4:15-16 - “For we have not an 
high priest which cannot be touched with 
the feeling of our infirmities; but was in

obtain mercy, and find grace to help in 
time of need.”
