Come Forward to the Holy of Holies

Revelation 21:16 tells us that New Jerusalem is a cube: “the length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.” In the Bible, the Holy of Holies is a cube, and New Jerusalem is the eternal Holy of Holies.

Hebrews 10:19-20 say, “Having therefore, brothers, boldness for entering the Holy of Holies in the blood of Jesus, which entrance He initiated for us as a new and living way through the veil, that is, His flesh.” Our boldness for entering the Holy of Holies comes not from who we are or what we do; it depends on what our Lord accomplished in His death on the cross—“the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all” (Hebrews 10:10, + v. 12, 14).

Given this firm foundation, Hebrews 10:22 says, “Let us come forward to the Holy of Holies.” We may ask, Where is the present Holy of Holies? and, How do we get to it? Here* is a very good answer:

The Holy of Holies today is in heaven, where the Lord Jesus is (Heb. 9:12, 24). How, then, can we enter the Holy of Holies while we are still on earth? The secret is our spirit, referred to in Hebrews 4:12. The very Christ who is in heaven is now also in our spirit (2 Tim. 4:22). As the heavenly ladder (Gen. 28:12; John 1:51), He joins our spirit to heaven and brings heaven into our spirit. Hence, whenever we turn to our spirit, we enter into the Holy of Holies. There we meet with God, who is on the throne of grace. See note 161 in ch. 4.

Whenever we come forward, we receive the Lord as our supply to live on the path to New Jerusalem.
