The Feasts of the Lord Reverence the Holiness of God – Part 8
– June 25, 2022
In the final part of the series, two areas are discussed: 1) Only the High Priest was allowed behind the veil into the Holy of Holies, where the Ark of the Covenant was, a single time of year on the Day of Atonement. 2) On this Day of Atonement, the presence of God would dwell above the Mercy Seat between the Cherubim of Glory to meet and speak with the High Priest. The High Priest was there reverencing the Holiness of God to have the sins of the congregation of Israel forgiven.
Because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we can come directly to the Throne of Grace in Heaven. These rituals and the rituals God expects us to keep today teach us that “You are the Temple of God”. May we never forget that—and forever, and ever, and ever reverence the Holiness of God.
