The door into the Holy of Holies was a large veil. First century Jewish historian, Josephus, said the veil was four inches thick, and that horses tied to each side of it could not pull the veil apart.
When we look at the image of the cherubim, we might view them as decorative. However, the image of cherubim at the entrance was like placing a large "DO NOT ENTER" sign on the door. One of the roles of the cherubim is to protect you.
Sometimes, when God closes a door it is an act of His protection. Don't be frustrated when God closes doors. God opens doors too; and when He does, you will see God's glory and understand His plan with greater insight.
