Scripture Ref.: Ex. 34:33-35, 2 Chron. 3:13-16, Heb. 10:19-20
Matt. 17:2,5 Isa.25:7,9
In our progression into the Rest of God, we see a Veil situated directly behind the Golden Incense Altar. This fine white linen veil with the blue, red, and purple threads woven therein hangs on four gold covered acacia wood pillars that stand in silver sockets and cherubim are woven in the Veil with threads of gold.. This holy representation of the flesh of Jesus Christ is hanging on the golden pillars and standing in His finished work of redemption for all that will allow Him to draw them to Him. Here He beckons us to enter into His rest through a new and living way. His flesh.
The tabernacle veil was the handiwork of Bezaleel of the tribe of Judah, as was the flesh veil (Jesus) of the tribe of Judah. It is amazing how these types and shadows are so exact. The way into the Holiest of Holies was not made manifest until the holy seed was spoken into the womb of the virgin Mary, who was a descendant of the tribe of Judah.
While Jesus Christ lived, there was no redemption; but His death was the finished work of of salvation. When He hung on the cross. His last words were "It is finished". (Tatelleosti.. "debt paid in full", and if you pay a debt in Israel today this is what is stamped on the papers). As He spoke these words and bowed His head in death, this Veil separating the Holy of Holies from the Holy Place there in the temple was rent from top to bottom. It was a empty room, as the Ark of the Covenant has not been seen on earth since the days of Jeremiah. As God exposed the emptiness of the "church system " that rejects Jesus Christ as God, He made a new and living way into His rest. When the veil was rent the cherubim embroidered there on fell to the ground. I am sure the angels in heaven worship at His feet, and no longer guard the Way to The Tree of Life as they had since God sent them to do so in the garden of Eden. We are invited in after our prayer at the Incense Altar.
Here in the tabernacle in the wilderness Holiest Place was where Moses and Aaron came for acceptance and instruction. When the Light or Cloud above this area moved, the children of Israel broke camp and followed the priest and Levites who carried the articles on their shoulders, leading the way until the Light or Cloud stopped. The Veil wrapped Ark led the Way. This veil was taken and draped across the Ark of the Covenant holding the Written Word, the Manna Pot, and Aaron's Rod that budded. This is such a perfect picture that in the flesh of God we call Jesus was the Written, Anointed, and Sustenance Word of God.
When the shadow became substance Our Lord went into the heavenlies before the throne the Mercy Seat represented, and He left the door open !! Praise God. He is our forerunner. The Veil became Flesh, the Manna became Man, the Ark and Mercy Seat became the throne of the Lamb slain from before the foundation of the world. The Anchor of our souls is seated there an beckons us to enter. As we walk IN HIM we can do so. The apostle Paul said it so well, " If you have received Jesus Christ, walk ye in Him."
