Access to the Throne of Grace
In Moses’ tabernacle, priests would enter the holy place through the front curtain, into what amounted to a corridor through the various pieces of furniture. If you have named the name of Christ, you are a ‘priest of the Most High God’ and you can walk this ‘corridor’ in the true tabernacle ‘not made with hands’. Heb 8:2. Heb 9:24. This is the ‘Way’ of Christ, the ‘way’ for every believer. Joh 14:6. Act 2:9.
At the end of this corridor, there was a final veil or curtain which was a symbol of the separation of heaven from earth, or immortality from mortality. This veil prevented access to the most holy place where the ark of the covenant was situated.
We know that when Jesus hung on the cross in that final hour, the veil of the temple in Jerusalem was rent in two. Mat 27:51. Christ as ‘High Priest of the good things to come’ had, ‘with His own blood’, entered the most holy place ‘once for all’. Heb 9:11. He opened access to the throne of grace for every believer.
So you and I, in faith, can come through that corridor and approach the throne of grace with boldness. And there we can find mercy and help in time of need. Heb 4:16.
The power of a Lampstand Church "There were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God" Rev 4:5.
