The curtain will separate the Holy Place from the Holy-of-Holies. Exodus 26:33b (TM)
A portable worship center. Those are the instructions in these chapters. A sanctuary-tent for God’s presence that the Hebrews can carry on their sojourn from Egypt to the promised land. Notice, within these instructions, that God commands a clear separation between His presence and the people. He gives a very clear word picture to the Hebrews: "There’s a separation between you and me. I’m in here and you can’t come in." Why?
There’s this problem called sin. The separation began in Genesis 3 when Adam’s and Eve’s willful disobedience banishes them from God’s presence in the Garden. The question then was the same one that faces each of us today. The things I should do I don’t and the things I know I shouldn’t do I do. What do I do about this willful disobedience called sin?
As history proceeds, God sets about to set up a systematic provide a blueprint for worship, and within that blueprint is the Message in metaphor. Sin separates us, but there is a curtain, a Gateway into my presence and through that sacrifice this curtain shall be torn and I will make a way for you to come in and be with me and me with you.
