“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.” (Exodus 26:31).


The vail is the flesh of Jesus Christ. “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.” (Hebrews 10:20). We will discover in the flesh of Jesus Christ, as with the curtains, many characteristics composing His flesh. There are three colours of the veil of fine twined linen that will direct us to various truths of Jesus’ flesh.


The Blue 

As in the curtains, we have again the fine twined linen. The colours of the beautiful blue, the deep rich purple, and the brilliant scarlet were displayed upon the foundation of fine twined linen. The fine twined linen speaks of perfection, without spot or blemish. This speaks of the Perfect Lamb of God who was without spot or blemish, Jehovah-Tsidkenu; i.e., Jehovah our Righteousness, JESUS-Jehovah. This is the Righteous One, the Holy One of God, Jesus Christ. The foundation bedrock truth of Jesus’ flesh (Gr. sarx = human spirit, human soul, human body) is that it was in the days of his flesh sinful flesh possessing the sin or fallen nature of the flesh, yet he never sinned being perfect and without spot or blemish. Adam and mankind are of the earth, earthy, but Jesus Christ is the Lord from above, having defeated death, hell, and the grave. His flesh is the only begotten of God, the bread that came down from heaven, His flesh that He gives for the life of the world in that He is God who will abide in and dwell or house permanently in a body of human flesh and blood. 


The blue ranks predominant and pre-eminent, being always the first colour in the order of colours throughout the Tabernacle. This is the heavenly colour of the origin of Jesus Christ. This is the last Adam, the LORD from above; not of the earth, earthy as was the first Adam. The blue is a heavenly colour being closely linked with gold. Consider the following scripture, how the “and” is omitted between the gold and the blue. “And they shall make the ephod of gold, of blue, and purple, of scarlet, and fine twined linen, with cunning work.” (Exodus 28:6). This closely connects the gold and the blue in the Word of God. Gold being the brilliant glory of God, the blue depicts the eternal nature of God in Love Personified. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16). As blue is the colour of the expanse of heaven, which cannot be measured, neither can the love of Jesus Christ be measured as to the depth, height, length, and breadth. As the colour blue has the pre-eminence in the tabernacle, so love is the pre-eminent attribute of God. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance, against such there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22). “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” (1 John 4:8). This is the dominant attribute of God, this is Love Personified, this is Jesus Christ who was rich and became poor for us that we might be made rich through the knowledge of Him; i.e, God. “That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” (Ephesians 3:17-19).


Blue is the predominant colour of the Tabernacle. All of the vessels of the tabernacle save the Ark of the Covenant were covered with a cloth of blue. The curtains of the Tabernacle were connected together with taches of gold inserted into loops of blue connecting the curtains of the Tabernacle. “And thou shalt make loops of blue upon the edge of the one curtain from the selvedge in the coupling; and likewise shalt thou make in the uttermost edge of another curtain, in the coupling of the second. Fifty loops shalt thou make in the one curtain, and fifty loops shalt thou make in the edge of the curtain that is in the coupling of the second: that the loops may take hold one of another. And thou shalt make fifty taches of gold, and couple the curtains together with the taches: and it shall be one tabernacle.” (Exodus 26:4-6). God is love, therefore the blue was the Divine force that was seen throughout the Tabernacle. There are many attributes of God displayed in His One Tabernacle, of His One Body; but the primary dominant trait is LOVE. This attribute of Love is not of the earth, earthy; but is God Himself, Whom the heavens of heavens cannot contain. God’s Divine judgment, as the anger of God that is manifested, endures only for moment, for God delights in mercy. Jesus Christ is the Glory typified in the gold. Jesus Christ is the Love typified in the blue. As one sinner asked another concerning the love of God, “How do we know that God loves us?” The answer to a lost and dying world is, “He hung on an old rugged cross for you.”


Even faith itself, which is the necessary ingredient to please God, works by love. “For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.” (Galatians 5:6). The greatest commandment of God is to love. To love the Lord thy God with all your might, and to love your neighbor as yourself. Anyone who loves the Lord will have a burden for the lost, realizing that God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance unto salvation. If there is any one trait of the Lord Jesus Christ that needs to be manifested in this world through His body, the church, it is love. If your brother is in need, help him. If he is in prison, visit him. If he is hungry, feed him. For if we haven’t manifested the blue heavenly nature of love, how shall the world know that we love Him? “If any say that I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.” (1 John 4:20,21).


Even the ribband of blue which was directed by God to be placed upon the borders of Israel’s garments as fringe, after the stoning of a man that had broken the sabbath for gathering stones, was to remind them of the grace and love of God Who had redeemed them from Egypt. It is to God alone that loved us and redeemed us back to Himself by the shedding of His eternal blood through the Spirit that we owe our allegiance. For we are bought with the price of His precious blood. Though Jesus Christ is the heavenly God as portrayed by the colour of blue, yet He shed His own blood because He loved us. This is He that came by water and blood. The blue speaks of heaven, being the location of the throne of God. Jesus Christ is the Heavenly Man, not the earthly man, being declared to be so by the resurrection from the dead, being glorified with the glory that he had before the foundation of the world. Mankind is from beneath, but Jesus Christ is from above. Mankind is of this world, made of the dust of the ground; Jesus Christ is not of this world, God made flesh. The race of man come from the ground of the earth, and at the end of his life, goes back to the ground; ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Jesus Christ, however, come from the Father, and after crucifixion and resurrection, went back to the Father. Mankind is from beneath. Jesus Christ is from above. This is the blue of the vail, the origin of the heavenly Spirit that was manifested in the flesh of Jesus Christ, being the literal God of glory, the Almighty God manifested as the only begotten. The blue speaks volumes in the vail as the flesh of Jesus Christ manifesting love to the world, God come in flesh.


The Scarlet

The vail still refers to the flesh of Jesus Christ. The colour of scarlet will reveal more truth as relating to the flesh of Jesus Christ. As blue typified the eternal Spirit of God that came from above that was manifested in a human body below on earth, the scarlet typified the red of the blood of the worm, being the dye derived from the worm and speaks of Adam, red or ruddy. “Adam” is from the Hebrew “’adam” meaning “ruddy, a human being, red.” [1]  Jesus Christ, in the body of His flesh, will be of the lineage of Adam as proclaimed by Luke. “Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.” (Luke 3:38). Jesus Christ, in His lineage, will be the son of Adam, a man of flesh just like you and me.


Scarlet is also the colour of royalty. When Jesus Christ was mocked and called a king, the soldiers of Rome clothed Him with a scarlet robe. “Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers. And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.” (Matthew 27:27,28). “Scarlet” is from the Greek “kokkos” meaning “(from the kernal shape of the insect), crimson, a kernal of seed, corn, grain.” [2] This is Jesus Christ perceived as an earthly king rather than a heavenly. The blasphemous deed of Judas Iscariot deemed Jesus Christ to be of an earthly kingdom, and proceeded to force Jesus to institute His kingdom while on earth. “Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.” (John 18:36). David also is referred to as being ruddy. When Samuel asked Jesse to send and fetch David: “And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him; for this is he.” (1 Samuel 16:12). This vail of scarlet will allude to Jesus’ flesh being after the royal and kingly lineage of David.


Jesus Christ’s flesh, according to the scarlet of the vail, will be of the lineage of Adam as declared by the lineage according to Luke and, of the royal lineage of David, as declared by the lineage according to Matthew. Even though Adam was a son of God as proclaimed by Luke in the above scripture, He was not a begotten Son of God, having God’s own Spirit without measure as did Jesus at birth. Jesus Christ was the natural son of David accppording to the flesh, having the natural genealogy or blood of David. All mankind of every human being has the blood of the progenitor Adam, since the blood of the father supplies the genetic information for the child, and not that of the mother. It is both the paternal blood as well as the maternal blood that determines the genetic information of the child. Therefore, a person can have a paternal blood test done in order to determine the identity of his or her father. A blood test performed on Jesus will proclaim Adam or David to be His father according to the flesh; but according to the Spirit of God that dwelled in him permanently, He will be proclaimed God Himself; that is, the Father.  “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” (Acts 20:28). 


Jesus Christ as the son of David, or of the lineage of Adam, speaks of His legal right and His natural birth right, to the throne of David and the Redeemer of mankind. Jesus was so named by God as to declare His own Person as God, for the Son and the Father are one. God would not be manifest as a banana tree, for if He had been, we would all be bowing before a banana tree and worshipping God manifest in the banana tree. You say that that is a stupid statement. Yes, I know it is and I grant you that. But how do you, the reader, deem a person who is worshipping Jesus Christ as a mere creature of creation, just like a banana tree is of creation. Jesus Christ did not receive His name by good works always pleasing the Father and becoming the spotless Lamb of God; thus, being promoted to some higher degree of glory to become God. But He, by inheritance, as the only begotten Son of God, the only begotten God, having the Spirit of God without measure, hath obtained a more excellent name than the angels, be it Gabriel or Michael. Why? Because after His glorification, he went from his state of no reputation or emptied out state putting off his dignity, honor, and glory back to his former state of glory. Now he has been elevated, highly exalted, glorified to his former state of glory as the Spirit that he is; that is, He is God in His Spirit, He is God in His Soul, He is God in His Flesh....the vail of his flesh being rent making the way for the man to enter the Holy of Holies.  The scarlet of the vail, His flesh, portrays the truth of the son of David, and the son of Adam. “Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.” (Hebrews 1:4). He was born King of the Jews as the scarlet portrays in the vail,  by descent from Adam, David, and Abraham, by His own Excellency as God who was manifested in and through this man of flesh and blood just like us.


“Scarlet”, when referring to the colour in the vail, is the Hebrew “shaniy” meaning “crimson, from the insect or its colour;” and “towla” meaning “a maggot (as voracious), worm.” [3] The scarlet depicts the truth that Jesus Christ, in His flesh, will be the sin-offering in the body of His flesh on the tree, sacrificing His own blood for the sin of the world. Though He is God in Spirit, He as a man will be turned into a worm, to die in our stead. Consider the cry of Jesus in the crucifixion Psalm. “But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.” (Psalms 22:6). God will turn His own body into the things that He hates, even as a worm that is greedy and glutinous. The scarlet depicts Jesus Christ as the Son of David, as the last Adam who will shed His blood as a crimson tide, to wash away the sin of the world.


The Purple 

The purple in the vail separated the two extreme colours of blue and scarlet. The blue never touched the scarlet, and the scarlet never preceded the blue. But both touched the purple, purple being a mixture of blue and scarlet, a mediator between the two. Jesus Christ was foremost God manifesting the nature of God and not that of self, always doing the will of the Father and not his own will. The purple speaks of the Mediator as well as the Royal purple King of Kings that He is as God. This speaks of the Son of David, as He that will rule from Jerusalem. “The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.” (Psalms 132:11). Consider Jesus’ remark to Peter: “And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” (Matthew 19:28). Notice, this is not an earthly king or kingdom, as so deemed by Judas Iscariot, but was the heavenly King who would sit in the throne of His glory. In the regeneration does not refer to Jesus Christ being regenerated, but creature and creation being regenerated by the work of the cross through the body of Christ, the church. Jesus Christ has been, and will always be God. But we as believers, in the regeneration, will obtain the promise of the city, Whose builder and Maker is God, Jesus Christ. “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour.” (Titus 3:5,6).


The question that Jesus asked that stopped all further questions to Him was as follows: “Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David. He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand till I make thine enemies thy footstool?  If David then call him Lord, how is he his son? And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.” (Matthew 22:42-46). This is portrayed in the purple of the vail, that is, His flesh. This is a Sonship question Jesus asked pertaining to Himself. He is LORD (the gold and blue), and He is Lord (scarlet). The purple is the mixture of blue and scarlet. God, (the Spirit) is portrayed in the blue, and flesh and blood (the man, being fashioned as a man made under the law) is portrayed in the scarlet. This is the flesh and blood of the Spirit of God; i.e. God manifested in the flesh as a man. This is the Mediator of the Covenant, the man Christ Jesus. “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” (1 Timothy 2:5,6). The natural assumption is that Jesus Christ is a natural man of the natural lineage of Joseph and Mary. However, Joseph did not furnish the natural seed for Mary to be impregnated; therefore, Joseph was not the natural father of Jesus. God used the earthly elements of Mary’s egg to be used in the genetics of Jesus, which allowed Jesus in the genealogy of Luke to be of the seed of Adam.  Jesus Christ is 100% full Deity, that is, in His Spirit he is God. The Son of God refers to the office of the flesh as a man that will be redemption for all mankind by the shedding of blood.  Thus, the Mediator is God’s only begotten Son, who was the body of His flesh, was made under the law, in order to  redeem them that were under the law, now being the mediator of a better covenant. Jesus Christ is now our Advocate with the Father, the man Christ Jesus. This is the purple colour in the vail, which is Jesus’ flesh.


Summation of the Veil

In summation, the vail, that is to say, Jesus’ flesh, did not have only one colour as to its intrinsic value, but was a combination of the blue, purple, and scarlet, which colour scheme was all throughout the Tabernacle, being mentioned some twenty-eight times. The man Jesus Christ was glorious, being the Spirit of God in the man without measure manifesting the glory of the Father in human flesh. This is the flesh and blood of Almighty God. The vail proclaims emphatic profound truths, abstruse to the natural mind or reasoning of man, but glorious to the beholder of the grace and truth that came by Jesus Christ.
