  5. Approach Holy of Holies

"Approaching  the Throne of God
The Holy of Holies"

Under the "New Covenant," The Holy of Holies is at the Throne of God the Father and God the Son, Jesus.

It is only possible to approach the very presence of God through Jesus, our Great High Priest's indwelling Holy Spirit.

Many do not realize the tragedy of Adam and Eve's sin. There was no separation of God and man until the fall of Adam and Eve. 

Not only were they separated, but their sins also caused everyone else to be separated from God. For centuries, humanity was forced to live apart from God.

The Messiah

Then, Jesus, the promised Messiah and Savior of the world came to earth and gave His life on the cross.

Upon Jesus' death, graves were opened, and there were earthquakes, storms, and lightning.

The veil of the temple that represented the separation of man from God was rent from top to bottom, signifying the end of this terrible separation,
(Matt 27:50-54).

  • "Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess." 
  • "Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need," (Heb 4:14 & 16).

Jesus is our Great High Priest. It is only possible for Jesus to enter the Holy of Holies and speak personally with God our Father.

Approaching the Throne of God

  • "Enter into His Gates with thanksgiving and into his courts with praise," (Psa 100:4).

Scripture says to enter with thanksgiving and praise. However, it does not say that our entry is granted 'because' of our praise and thanksgiving.

We can only approach the Holy Throne of God 'because' Jesus paid the price on the cross. Therefore, we are to glorify Jesus as we enter the Father's Awesome Presence.

I often begin personal worship and prayer by entering  the presence of God with thanksgiving and praise for Jesus because He has made it possible.

As I sense in my spirit that I am drawing nearer to the throne I begin to praise and worship God for His awesome love, power, and glory.

Through faith in Christ, we can enter the Holy of Holies and bravely approach the Throne of God, the very Presence of God, (Heb 4:16).
