In God We Trust



 Have you ever thought what happen when Christ gave His spirit when

He died on the Cross?    And what happen in the Temple of God.    

Lets go to Mark

Mar 15:38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top

to the bottom.

This is when Christ gave us all the right to be able to enter into the

Holy of Holies,

Heb 9:3 And after the second vail, the tabernacle which is called

the Holiest of all;

And after the second vail ... Were there more vails than one?    

The Scripture speaks but of one, Exo_26:31

 Exo 26:31 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:

 There was indeed an hanging for the door of the tent, but that is not

called a vail ; nor was there more than one  in the tabernacle, nor in the

temple of Solomon; but in the second temple, under which the apostle

lived, there were two s, which divided between the holy place, and the

holy of holies; and the innermost of these the apostle means: and so

 the Jewish writers  constantly affirm, that there were two s between

 the said places, and that two new ones were made every year.    So on

 the day of atonement, when the high priest went into the most holy

 place, with the incense, it is said, that "He walked in the temple till he

 came between, "the two s", which divide between the holy, and holy of

 holies, and there was the space of a cubit between them.''

 The reason of these two s may be seen in the account Maimonides gives of this matter:  In the first temple there was a wall which divided between the holy, and holy of holies, the thickness of a cubit; but when they built the second temple it was doubted by them whether the thickness of the wall was of the measure of the holy place, or of the measure of the holy of holies; wherefore they made the holy of holies twenty cubits complete, and the holy place forty cubits complete, and they left the space of a cubit between the holy, and the holy of holies; and they did not build a wall in the second temple, but they made "two s", one on the side of the holy of holies, and the other on the side of the holy place, and between them a cubit answerable to the thickness of the wall, which was in the first temple; but in the first temple there was but one  only, as it is said, Exo_26:

Exo 26:33 And thou shalt hang up the vail under the taches, that thou mayest bring in thither within the ark of the testimony: and the vail shall divide unto you between the holy place and the most holy.

 “…and the vail shall divide unto you, ''

And to this account other Jewish writers agree; and the space between the two s is called vail by them, from the trouble and perplexity this affair gave them.    

This , or s, might represent the sin of man, which separates between God and men, excludes from heaven; but is removed by the death of Christ, when the vail was rent in twain; so that now there is an open way to heaven; Christ has entered into it by his own blood; and saints have boldness to enter there by faith and hope now, and shall hereafter personally enter into it: or else this S may signify the ceremonial law, which separated between Jew and Gentile, and is abolished by the death of Christ: or rather it was typical of the flesh, or human nature of Christ, called the  of his flesh, Heb_10:20.

Heb 10:20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

 Now within this second  was the tabernacle, or that part of it, the second part, which is called the holiest of all; which was either typical of Christ, who is called the most Holy, Dan_9:24

Dan 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

 He being so in both natures, divine and human; or of heaven, for the holy places, made with hands, was figures of heaven, Heb_9:24

 Heb 9:24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

 For its holiness, it being the habitation of the holy God, holy angels, and spirits of just men made perfect; and for its invisibility, and the unseen things which faith and hope, which enter within the vail, are the evidence of; and for the things that are in it, typified by the following ones.
