“And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.”
King James Version (KJV)

Kevin, may the Holy Spirit grace you with (spiritual) understanding and (spiritual) wisdom.
1 Corinthians 15:45 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
Revelation 11:15...... The kingdoms or this world (natural and can be seen with natural eyes) are become the kingdoms of the Lords (spiritual and not seen with natural eyes).......
Revelation is symbolic and can not be discerned with natural eyes, but the Holy Spirit has to grace you with spiritual eyes. Ask and you shall receive.
Revelation 15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God......
1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God DWELLETH in you?
John 2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up (21) but he spake of the temple of his body.
1 Corinthians 12:27 Now ye are the body of Christ......
Revelation 15:8 And the temple (you and the Holy Ghost, which is Christ in Spirit) was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues were fulfilled.
Since all mankind was given access to the Holy Ghost at pentecost; therefore, the plagues were pour out before pentecost. Most of mankind is looking through natural eyes; therefore, they think they will be able to see these plagues, but the plagues being carried out are in the spiritual form and can't be seen with natural eyes, but the same results will occur on those they are imposed on.
You have to become well acquainted with the prophecies to even begin to understand Revelation and if the Holy Ghost is not guiding you it is impossible to understand. Ask and you shall receive.
There are many more details and many more scriptures that clarify Revelation 15, but not near enough spare to share in 2000 words.
The Spirit grace you with eyes to see.

why did the Holy Spirit deem it important to show us the tabernacle in heaven being filled with the glory of God just before the final judgements are poured out upon the rarth

This is on a spiritual level. The temple of God is not made by the hands of men. The one destroyed over and over represented that heavenly representation and when those given the covanant6 said they would yet turned away that temple was destroyed. WE are the temple of God. His covenant is not community based but individual based. Every man will answer for his part in that temple... unfortunately some will be ripped out
