Since sin first entered the world through an act of deception in the garden, we have been separated from God. In the Old Testament we read that inside the temple was a holy place called the Holy of Holies.
There was a heavy curtain, which veiled the passage into this chamber, separating the people from the presence of God. Only the High Priest was allowed to enter this space where he would go once a year on the Day of Atonement. The High Priest would then offer animal sacrifices for his sins and the sins of the people. This was an annual event to be repeated year after year.
