.. And He shall come down from heaven among the children of men, and shall dwell in a TABERNACLE OF CLAY..claytabernacles.com
Christ as a child, who is a glorified, eternal God, reigning in heaven, and holding the power to exist from eternity to eternity. Coming here to Earth to condescend and “dwell in a tabernacle of clay.” (Mosiah 3: 5.) Christ knew that there were certain activities which He could only perform when clothed in a mortal body: a “tabernacle of flesh.”
Christ was already exalted. He did not come here for His advancement, according to this angel, but He came and descended into a “tabernacle of clay” in order to serve us.
He would come with a veil of forgetfulness. He would have to endure the frailties of the tabernacle of clay. He would need to study, search, pray and submit. He would have to walk the exact same path which all of us are required to walk.
.."He came and descended into a “tabernacle of clay” in order to serve us"
..WE each have “a labor to perform whilst in this tabernacle of clay, that we may conquer the enemy of all righteousness, and rest our souls in the kingdom of God."
"We too, brothers and sisters, came “into the world” to pass through our particularized portions of the mortal experience. Even though our experiences do not even begin to approach our Master’s, nevertheless, to undergo this mortal experience is why we too are here! Purposefully pursuing this “cause” brings ultimate meaning to our mortal lives."
I’m going to continue my journey in my Claytabernacle here on Earth because it is my purpose to. It’s important that I strive harder than ever to be morally clean, looking to the LIGHT for guidance. I’m not perfect at all, but I will try to be. NLM
