So let me go back again to these verses in Hebrews, chapter 10. I've been using this kind of as a summary of many of the things that were said in the previous chapters and I'm going back and supplementing these statements by where they had been ministered on earlier. So in Hebrews, chapter 10, verse 19 it says "Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh:" and I've been focused for the last three days on those two verses and turning over to complimentary or you know, references that go along with this and yesterday I was talking about, in verse 20, "By a new and living way".
Man that is powerful! I spent a lot of time and I went over to Hebrews, chapter 9 and talked about that the cherubs that were over the mercy seat that kept people from approaching unto God and if anybody approached, the were struck dead. These cherubs have been removed and there is now no longer anything separating us. That we now enter through Jesus through the veil... That is to say his flesh... And of course the terminology here is symbolic. That in the temple there was this veil that separated the holy of holies, where God dwelt, from the holy place where the priests ministered and did their things and this veil separated and no one could enter into the presence of God because of this huge veil that was interwoven with threads of gold through it. But now that veil is the flesh of Jesus. It was symbolic of Jesus and when Jesus died... When his body was torn... That veil that separated us from God is gone and we can now enter into the very holy place by the blood of Jesus through his flesh.
