“With a loud cry, Jesus breathed His last.
The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.”
Mark 15:37, 38
I was really encouraged this week as I read this scripture. In the old testament the high priest was
the only one who could go into the Holy of Holies but once a year. (Exodus 26:31, Leviticus 16:2)
The people could not go to YAH on their own because they would die if they did. They needed a
“The Lord said to Moses, “Tell your brother Aaron that he is not to come whenever he chooses
into the Most Holy Place behind the curtain in front of the atonement cover on the ark, or else
he will die.”
That was intense. There were was no open communication between YAH and the people
but Yeshua tore that barrier down by what He did on the cross.
We now have access to YAH anytime because of what He did.
I know this is not rocket science but do we really take FULL advantage of this amazing blessing?
We can go to YAH anytime. In the middle of the night, when things are going downhill, when
we have sinned and are riddled with guilt, when we feel condemned…….
We can come to Him anytime! There is never a bad time to approach Him!
If you think there are specific times you can go to Him then you have been deceived, if you
think there are people that have more reason to approach Him than you then you are also wrong.
The curtain has been torn in two. The barrier that kept us from Him has been demolished forever.
This week has been great because I have been taking more advantage of the amazing blessing
of His presence. To know I can talk to Him at ANYTIME has brought joy to me.
When I think I am alone, He is right by my side waiting to spend time with me.
The problem is me. I am the one who allows things to come between us. I choose other things
in place of spending time with Him
And then there are the times when I mess up, when I sin. I keep away from Him at times thinking
He doesn’t want to be anywhere near me but its just not true.
As I end this post I want to leave you with the realization that the line of communication between you
and YAH is open! You don’t have to wait for the right time to approach Him.
Go to Him now as you are.
He loves you so much, beyond what you can ever comprehend.
“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive
mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
Bless you friends
Amen! We may boldly approach the throne of grace by what Jesus accomplished on the cross. Our God, Yahweh does all things well.
That’s right Barbara. He has done so much for us and keeps doing!
I always find so much joy and encouragement knowing He really does want to spend time with me, and that we can just sit and have conversations. The song The More I Seek You comes to mind 🙂
He has gone through great lengths to open the way for us to come to Him. So like you said, all He wants is to spend time with us.
And that is a great song!
God bless you, too 🙂
Love this. I must remember that I am always able to talk to God, in every thing I do, and ask His assistance even in the ‘small’ things. Thanks for the encouragement to do so!
You welcome Lynn! We need to always remember this or we will go through stuff alone in our own strength. I have made that mistake often….
Amen! And it’s amazing Jesus wants to talk to us!!!
It is amazing Ian. We just need to take advantage of it a lot more…..
Yes, so true!
