The curtain is torn!


“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

mediator.

 

“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.” 

Leviticus 16:2

 

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.” 

Hebrews 4:16

 

 

Bless you friends
