The Vail for the Ark and The Curtain for the Door
The Veil for the Ark
Exodus 26:31 And thou shalt make a vail of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen of cunning work: with cherubims shall it be made: 32 And thou shalt hang it upon four pillars of shittim wood overlaid with gold: their hooks shall be of gold, upon the four sockets of silver. 33 And thou shalt hang up the vail under the taches, that thou mayest bring in thither within the vail the ark of the testimony: and the vail shall divide unto you between the holy place and the most holy. 34 And thou shalt put the mercy seat upon the ark of the testimony in the most holy place. 35 And thou shalt set the table without the vail, and the candlestick over against the table on the side of the tabernacle toward the south: and thou shalt put the table on the north side.
The ten curtains, veil, and the most holy place had cherubim and the led the way for God’s people to come to Him and worship Him in Spirit and truth. The sign along with the cherubims on the curtains and veil is the three colors which represent the sky’s covering, Jesus hanging in the sky and His blood being mixed with it to produce purple and His people’s right to be kings, and His scarlet blood the justifies whosoever will call on His name. The taches bind the agreement of God’s love, and Jesus is our eternal High Priest who continually sits on the mercy seat to intercede for His people. The table gives His people the spiritual nourishment and shows who He is to the world continually and the candlestick lights their path through the wilderness they travel. The south is the right hand of logical strength and the north is the left hand of creativity; so, the Lord is strengthening His people’s creativity and showing them their path in His light.
The Curtain for the Door
Exodus 26:36 And thou shalt make an hanging for the door of the tent, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, wrought with needlework. 37 And thou shalt make for the hanging five pillars of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, and their hooks shall be of gold: and thou shalt cast five sockets of brass for them.
The outer door had the imagery of the colors, but not the cherubim because the children had traveled past the first cherubim of the Passover, yet had not reached the second point of the feast of weeks, but knew by the colors they were going in the right direction. The five golden pillars of grace and the rings of eternal love are shown and they were given feet of brass that can walk through fire once again.
