Holy Tent (8)

A curtain in the Holy Tent separated the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place. This curtain was made from heavy woven cloth. Exodus 26:31 describes this curtain. “Use fine linen and make a special curtain for the inside of the Holy Tent. Use blue, purple, and red yarn and sew pictures of Cherub angels into the curtain.”

Once a year, the High Priest went through the curtain into the Most High Place. He sprinkled blood on the Box of the Agreement. This is how the Israelite nation had their sins forgiven.

This curtain represented the separation between God and His people. God hates sin, and He cannot be close to people whose sins have not been forgiven. When Jesus died on the cross, the curtain in the Temple in Jerusalem was torn into two pieces. This showed that because of Jesus’ death, people didn’t have to be separated from God any more.

I hope you are close to God. Have you made the decision to follow Jesus by repenting of your sins, confessing His name and being baptized? If not, be sure to read His Word and obey it today. Then you can be close to God!
