Hebrews 10:19 “We have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the Blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is His Body.”
It was a dark and sombre day in the outskirts of Jerusalem. On a hill just outside the city walls, a Man who’d been attracting crowds for the past three years hung in disgrace and pain on a rough wooden cross, Mourners wept and wailed in sorrow. The light of the sun no longer brightened the afternoon sky. And the intense suffering of the Man ended when He cried out in a loud voice, “It is finished”. At that very moment, another sound came from the great temple across town - the sound of ripping fabric. Miraculously without human intervention, the Huge, Thick Veil that separated the outer temple from the Holy of Holies tore in two from Top to Bottom. That torn curtain symbolized the reality of the cross; a new way was now opened to God. Jesus the Man on the cross, had shed His Blood as the last sacrifice allowed, all who believe in Him are able to enjoy forgiveness of sins and enter into a relationship with God. Amidst the darkness of that Good Friday, Jesus opened a way for us to be saved from the consequences of our sins and experience fellowship with God. Thank you Jesus for the torn Veil.
Have a Blessed Peace filled Easter knowing the price has been paid for our sins.
Jesus is also the reason for This Season!
