And thou shalt make a vail of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen of cunning work: with cherubims shall it be made: And thou shalt hang it upon four pillars of shittim wood overlaid with gold: their hooks shall be of gold, upon the four sockets of silver. And thou shalt hang up the vail under the taches, that thou mayest bring in thither within the vail the ark of the testimony: and the vail shall divide unto you between the holy place and the most holy. Exodus 26:30-33
In this reading we see Gods instructions for creating the Veil. What was the purpose of the Veil? Notice at the end it states “The Veil is to divide between the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place” Meaning the Veil was too separate God from the sinful man. Nobody was to enter behind the Veil unless they have been cleansed.
Again this is a foreshadow of Christ and the New Covenant to come. Why? Because when Jesus said on the Cross “It Is Finished” The Veil was torn, the division between God and Man has become reconciled because Christ has paid the debt for our sins. We have been cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ
And thou shalt put the mercy seat upon the ark of the testimony in the most holy place. And thou shalt set the table without the vail, and the candlestick over against the table on the side of the tabernacle toward the south: and thou shalt put the table on the north side. Exodus 26:34-35
The Mercy Seat again is symbolic and a foreshadow of Christ. What was the purpose of the Mercy Seat? Exactly what it says to obtain mercy. The highpriest on the day of Atonement would sprinkle the sacrificial blood on the Mercy Seat to be atoned for their sins.
Jesus is our Mercy Seat, He is the only atonement for our sins. The Veil has been torn and you can now enter the Holy of Holies and obtain mercy by the blood of Jesus Christ, the only way to salvation
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. John 19:30
Jesus said on the cross “It Is Finished” meaning the debt has been paid. The atonement for our sins has been completed. Jesus is the Lamb of God, the only acceptable sacrifice for us, Jesus paid it all Amen!
