GATE DOOR VEIL           
"You shall make an enclosure for the Tabernacle on the south side." [Exodus (Shemot) 27. 9 - 16 Tanakh, Torah]

In the three entrances of the Tabernacle we see MESSIAH YESHUA, THE GATE (THE WAY), THE DOOR (THE TRUTH) and THE VEIL (THE LIFE).  The number "three" represents the GODhead, the TRINITY.  OMNIPOTENT GOD'S fullness is summed up in MESSIAH as shown in these three doorways.  "For in HIM dwells all the fullness of the GODhead bodily." [Colossians 2. 9]   We approach the fullness of spiritual life only through GOD'S SON, our cherished, BELOVED REDEEMER.

THE GATE was 20 cubits x 5 cubits equaling 100.  There is 100% salvation which the LORD GOD purchased for all who will come to HIM.  It was low and wide, extending its arms (so to speak) to "whosoever will." This Gate was supported by 4 Pillars.  Those 4 Pillars show the Way to Holiness that are found in the NEW COVENANT Books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

THE DOOR was 10 cubits x 10 cubits equaling 100 also. The ALMIGHTY ONE has one-hundred percent fellowship for HIS own.  This curtain was, however, higher and narrower than the Gate.  "Height" means greater and a more enlarged spiritual experience.  There is a narrower walk with ETERNAL GOD, an enlarged and higher plane of living.  It is through the sanctifying of the SPIRIT OF GOD for fellowship and service with HIM.

Some followers of CHRIST stop after entering the GATE OF SALVATION; they live selfishly, keeping silent concerning their salvation, and becoming stagnant by not allowing the RIVERS OF LIVING WATER to flow through them to others.  They have entered the Court and have failed to explore further into the heights of DIVINE GRACE.

After entering the Holy Place through THE DOOR, the priests would minister to the LORD OF GLORY at the Golden Lampstand, the Table of Showbread and the Altar of Incense.  They would partake of and participate in these illustrative objects showing their close relationship with their GOD for the people.  Those who enter into the Holy Place with GOD receive more light, food and worship.  Here the CHRISTian grows in the knowledge of MESSIAH for HE is "THE LIGHT (Golden Lampstand) OF THE WORLD." The LORD JESUS is "THE BREAD which came down from heaven (Table of Showbread)."  And, HE is the "GREAT INTERCESSOR (Altar of Incense — taking the prayers of the saints to GOD ALMIGHTY)." Here one can partake of the very life of the HOLY ONE and continue to grow in the fullness of MESSIAH YESHUA, which is the will of GOD concerning all who are HIS. 

There were Five Pillars that held up the DOOR. The Pillars represent ministries: Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers. [Ephesians 4. 11]

Now we come to THE VEIL which was the entrance to the Holy of Holies.  It is also 10 cubits x 10 cubits, as was the Door, but it was even more beautiful.  There was added to it the design of the cherubim, the guardians of GOD'S holiness.  The Veil was made of cunning work — the design and colours woven through the material so that it was seen on both sides.  Again, the ten-by-ten equals one hundred. . . GOD offers 100% of HIS glorious, holy presence to those who desire it for HE has purchased it for them with HIS OWN precious blood!  There is a more beautiful walk with the HOLY ONE, it is the Way of Holiness; and without holiness, no man shall see, understand, or know the ALMIGHTY ONE.  The Four Pillars holding the Veil that leads into the Holiest is characteristics of YESHUA ha'MASHIACH: Wisdom, Righteousness, Sanctification (Holiness) and Redemption. [1 Corinthians 1. 30]   It is here that we find the other two ministries:  Priest and King. [Hebrews 6. 19 thru 7. 2]

Under the OLD COVENANT, the Israelites were restricted concerning the Temple, for they were allowed only through THE GATE into the Court. They were shut off from the Holy Place by the curtain called the Door.  Only the priests, the sons of Aaron, were allowed through this entrance.  But even the priests were shut off from the Holiest Place by the Veil.  Besides Moses, only one man, the high priest, was allowed through the Veil into the Holy of Holies and that, only once a year and at that time, he could not enter without blood!   But, these restrictions were changed — done away in MESSIAH YESHUA WHO fulfilled the OLD COVENANT to establish the NEW.  "JESUS, when HE had cried again with a loud voice, and yielded up HIS SPIRIT. And behold, THE VEIL of the Temple was torn in two from top to the bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split." [Matthew 27. 50 - 51]

Have you entered into the Gate? the Door? through the Veil?  How intimately do you want to walk with the KING OF GLORY? The choice is yours, the LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH calls us to a higher and closer walk with HIM.


Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Bidding farewell to Sabbath Chazon (Shabbat of Prophecy). We use all of our senses to bid farewell to Shabbat with the Havdalah (difference) Service; we taste the wine, smell the spices, see the shadows of candles, hear prayers & songs, and touch family and friends as we wish them a "Tov Shavua — A Good Week!"


Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace.

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising. Our Attitude of conduct: In case you missed them on your way in, take some time to become acquainted with the conduct we expect on this site. You may find our Attidudes on the main forum page. Our purpose at Scripural Studies is that the conversations move in a Gracious way. We define Gracious in the following way: 1) Not closed minded 2) Not self-promoting 3) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste proof-texting 4) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste from other places 5) Irenic 6) Not slanderous 7) No spamming 8) Perpetual venting bitterness 9) Not confusing or disruptive But in all things you'll be welcome here
