Symbolization: Holiness to the Lord

Original Entry Date 2/21/2015:

36 “You shall also make a plate of pure gold and engrave on it, like the engraving of a signet:


37 And you shall put it on a blue cord, that it may be on the turban; it shall be on the front of the turban. 38 So it shall be on Aaron’s forehead, that Aaron may bear the iniquity of the holy things which the children of Israel hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall always be on his forehead, that they may be accepted before the Lord.
Exodus 28:36-38 NKJV

The description of the Priestly garments are a representation of the character of Christ. They also reveal what was to come: the stones set on each shoulder for the priest to bear the 12 tribes before the Lord (Exodus 28:12). This was foretelling how Christ would bear the sins of the world on His shoulders by taking up the cross.

This plate of pure gold engraved with “Holiness to the Lord” is a symbol of the mind of Christ. This sets off a reminder to us, that our thoughts are to be Holiness to the Lord.

It is tied on by a Blue cord. The color blue represents Heavenly Things and is a reminder to keep our minds set on heavenly things.

Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

The Final point on this is that our minds and our thoughts are what drive our actions. There is a VERY strong connection between heart and mind. Our mind and our thoughts can be seen as a seal placed upon us from God.

Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.
Revelation 9:3-5 NKJV
