Exodus 26:31-37

31 “You shall make a veil of blue and purple and scarlet material and fine twisted linen; it shall be made with cherubim, the work of a skillful workman. 32 “You shall hang it on four pillars of acacia overlaid with gold, their hooks also being of gold, on four sockets of silver. 33 “You shall hang up the veil under the clasps, and shall bring in the ark of the testimony there within the veil; and the veil shall serve for you as a partition between the holy place and the holy of holies. 34 “You shall put the mercy seat on the ark of the testimony in the holy of holies. 35 “You shall set the table outside the veil, and the lampstand opposite the table on the side of the tabernacle toward the south; and you shall put the table on the north side.

36 “You shall make a screen for the doorway of the tent of blue and purple and scarlet material and fine twisted linen, the work of a weaver. 37 “You shall make five pillars of acacia for the screen and overlay them with gold, their hooks also being of gold; and you shall cast five sockets of bronze for them.

God is so holy, that the main part of the tabernacle wasn’t holy enough for Him. He designated the holy of holies to be the place where He would meet the High Priest once a year. Yet, once Christ died, we are told to come boldly before the throne of God. The awesome privilege afforded us by Christ’s death should not be taken lightly. God is no less holy; we are simply covered by the sacrifice of the perfect lamb. We gain entrance to the new holy of holies by the blood of Jesus himself.
