Freedom In Jesus Christ
Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 Corinthians 3:17 NKJV
This is one of many passages that the Lord/YWHW is emphasizing the free and uninhibited access we have with Him at all times AND no need for formalities to approach Him or live before Him. The thief on the cross next to Jesus had no time to get baptized, to use any formalities, he couldn't kneel or pay any pentance. He was accepted just as he was into paradise with Jesus that day (read it here).
The Old Testament is full of type and shadow. This is a phrase that describes the things that God did and instructed His people, the Israelites to do, to give them a visual picture of things that were to happen hundreds or thousands of years later, but would be passed down through the generations as a reminder until that day was to come. One of those things, for example, is that God instructed them to have a High Priest. That was a man that is in charge of all the other priests that took turns serving in the temple of God
