BOLDNESS TO ENTER IN
Hebrews 10 contains an incredible promise. It says God’s door is always open to us, giving us total access to the Father:
“Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; and having an high priest over the house of God; let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water” (Hebrews 10:19-22).
A few verses later, we are warned that the day of the Lord is fast approaching: “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching” (verse 25). God is saying, “Even now, as the time of Christ’s return draws closer, you must seek My face. It is time to go into your secret closet and get to know Me!”
I believe we are already seeing signs that we are close to a meltdown of our financial system; violence and immorality are on the rise and our society is pleasure mad. False prophets—”angels of light”—have deceived many with their doctrines of demons. And at any time we can expect to see the hour of tribulation, which will cause men’s hearts to fail with fear. Yet, before all this happens, the writer of Hebrews says:
“Don’t let the truth slip away from you! Stay awake and alert. You have an open door into God’s holy presence, so go into Him with full assurance of faith, making your petitions known. Christ’s blood has already made the way for you and nothing stands between you and the Father. You have every right to enter into the holy of holies, to receive all the help you need!”
