The Veil

Heb 10:19-22a
"Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and having a High Priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith"

This is a covenant renewal worship service. Our covenant with God is a relationship initiated by Him, sealed and made possible by the blood of Jesus. At Sinai Moses sprinkled the people and the Bible with blood to seal the covenant relationship between Yahweh and Israel. At the cross Jesus sprinkled His church with His blood to seal the covenant relationship with you.

At the front of most church buildings, behind the pulpit there is a cross. And in some, that cross is not on a wall but on fabric, to give the idea of a veil. The cross is the new temple veil. It’s our access to the holy of holies, to the presence of God. Technically, as Hebrews says, it isn’t the cross, but the blood of Jesus. And this cup is the new covenant in the blood of Jesus. And as we will sing in a moment, you have gained an interest in the savior’s blood. God promises you that every time He put bread and wine in your hands.
