About Me

My photo

Hey there, I'm Sunny Shell, a wretch saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ the Lord. I'm married to the most incredible man on earth, who loves Jesus more than he loves me, and we have two precious adult sons.

The compassionately endures me through my metabolic disease (since 2004) that enables me to be more prayerful and careful about commitments I make and helps me to make the best use of my short time here on earth.

Christ in the Tabernacle



The tabernacle was the foreshadowing of our awesome Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ who fulfilled the purpose of every element in the tabernacle.

Jesus:
  • Entered from the East
  • Became the perfect Lamb of God as He sacrificed Himself for the salvation of our sinful souls so that we could enter into the court [Genesis 22:8, John 1:29, Revelation 5:2-14]
  • Jesus washed our hands and feet [Psalm 24:3-4, Isaiah 52:7], allowing us to enter into the Holy Place
  • He is the bread of Life, the Presence of God incarnate [John 6:31-35, 2 Corinthians 4:4]
  • Jesus is the Light of the world [John 8:12]
  • He is our holy intercessor and the pure aroma that is so pleasing to the Father [Hebrews 7:25-28]
  • His body was the veil that separated the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place; when he died, when He was torn, Christ made a way for us to enter into the Holy of Holies [2 Corinthians 3:14-18, Hebrews 10:19-22]
The top of the Ark of the Covenant is called the "mercy seat". God would meet with the High Priest (and only once a year) in the Most Holy Place, above the mercy seat, between the two cherubim to provide the people with direction and to make atonement for their sins.

God's inexplicable and undeserved mercy came upon us as He poured out His wrath upon His Son.

But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things that have come, then through the greater and more perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation) He entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of His own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption. For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with the ashes of a heifer, sanctify for the purification of the flesh, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.
~ Hebrews 9:11-14
