The New and Living Way

The amazing thing about the Holy of Holies is that it is the new home for God's royal family. Through the death of Jesus Christ, "we have a way through the veil." The Greek word hodos, "way," is also used of the ways of God. Through His resurrection and ascension, we have a way into the Holy of Holies. Out of death came resurrection. Now, because we have been made members of God's royal family, the Holy of Holies is open continually as our home.

There is a High Priest over the House of God. This is a brand-new thing. Imagine that for fifteen hundred years, only the high priest was allowed into the Holy of Holies, and he could only go in once a year. But then it finally happened: The veil was rent. Christ's perfect life was torn for us at the Cross, making a way where we could not go before. His sacrifice was accepted, once for all. The Holy Place was no longer off-limits.

Now, as Christians in the Church Age, we are the only group of people in history who have the Holy of Holies as our new home.
