Begins Sunday evening, Sept. 27  and ends Monday evening, Sept. 28, 2020.

Hebrews 9:22 “In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.”

In the times of the Tabernacle and later the Temple, a “veil” or thick curtain, separated the Holy of Holies from the rest of the Temple. In effect, shielding a holy God from sinful man.

It was a most sacred room, no ordinary person could enter. It was God’s special dwelling place in the midst of His people.

Whoever entered into the Holy of Holies was entering the very presence of God. Anyone, except the high priest, who entered the Holy of Holies would die. Even the high priest, God’s chosen mediator with His people, could only pass through the veil and enter this sacred dwelling once a year, on the day called the Day of Atonement.

Hebrews 9:11-18
