PORTAL TO THE THRONE IN THE HOLY OF HOLIES

angels-2-ark

The Holy of Holies is described as the House of the “Kapporet” (1 Chron 28:11). Many invite us to believe that the kapporet is an adjunct of the Ark of the Covenant. The kapporet is the Ark’s lid or its cover. When one studies the word “throne” in Scripture, its primary meaning is covering. Therefore, the kapporet symbolizes the Throne of God, or at least a portal to it. It represents the place that the Lord appears (Lev 16:2). Additionally, Psalm 80:1 speaks of God being enthroned upon the Cherubim. Recall that the Ark of the Covenant has two Cherubim over the Ark, which forms the golden throne in the Holy of Holies.
