The other day a worship team member was talking about the tabernacle in the Old Testament. They mentioned how the Holy of Holies was behind the veil and only one priest could enter once a year, but when they did, they could behold the glory of God. As this person was talking, the thought struck me, “We’re there right now!”
Ephesians 2:6 tells us we are seated with Christ in heavenly places. The book of Hebrews tells us we’ve been given entrance to the Holy of Holies (the very presence of God) because of the blood of Jesus. Since that briefing I’ve been thinking how amazing it is that every believer on the face of the earth has what only one person, once a year, had in the Old Covenant – access to the heart and beauty of God.
Today, whether through meditating on the throne of God, or fellowshipping with the Holy Spirit who lives inside of us, or just talking with Him about this amazing truth, I want to remember where I live and Who it is that has made a way for me to approach Him.
Hebrews 10:19-22 ~
Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and having a High Priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
