The Holy of Holies, or the Most Holy Place, or the Holiest Place, was behind the veil, the rear one third of the Tabernacle. The place where the High Priest, on behalf of the people, would meet once a year with God. God’s Shekinah glory, the visible manifestation of God in the natural world in the form of the cloud, remained in the Holy of Holies above the Mercy Seat.
In our bodies ‘The Holy of Holies’ does not exist due to the fact that the veil was rendered from top to bottom in the temple, when Jesus died on the cross. The access into the Holy of Holies is wide open for all to enter. There is no separation any more between soul and spirit, all is considered holy. As Francois (Mirror translation) shows in Hebrews 10:19-20a, “So fellow family, what the blood of Jesus communicates, seals our immediate access into this ultimate place of sacred encounter, with unashamed confidence. This is the official inauguration of a brand new way of life. The torn flesh of Jesus opened the veil”.
