Sol Wise eCourses welcomes You Today!

Has anyone ever tried to convince you that Jesus Christ didn't actually die at His crucifixion?
Or that even if He did by chance die,
that He could not possibly have come back to life from the dead?
We invite YOU to discover Jesus Christ, the King of Glory, Risen from the dead!
Be blessed as you read:

19 - Separation Removed!

These are the instructions God gave Moses concerning His place of worship:

Exodus chapter 26:
31. Inside the Tabernacle, make a curtain from fine linen, with blue, purple, and scarlet Guardian Angels embroidered into the cloth.
32. Hang this curtain on gold hooks set into four pillars made from acacia wood overlaid with gold. The pillars are to be set in silver bases.
33. Behind this curtain place the Ark containing the stone tablets engraved with God's laws. The curtain will separate the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place.

Now this curtain was hung from a height of at least 15 feet. When Jesus Christ died, unseen hands tore this curtain from top to bottom. So the hands that did this must have been hands of authority and strength beyond those of a human being. This was done supernaturally by God. The reason is clear:

This curtain was the symbol of the separation between God and people. This curtain said very clearly that God is so holy that failing, sinful humans could not come into His immediate presence. Even shedding the blood of a lamb only covered their sin for one year.

Now that Jesus Christ has paid the penalty for our sins by dying on the cross, our sin is not just covered for one year, but the sin that had caused the separation between God and people had been dealt with fully once and for all time.

Through the blood of Jesus Christ, the way is now open for ordinary people to approach God without fear of death. We can now do, with reverence and freedom, what Psalm 100 says:

Psalm 100
1 Shout with joy before the Lord, O earth!
2 Obey him gladly; come before him, singing with joy.
3 Try to realize what this means - the Lord is God!
He made us - we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4 Go through his open gates with great thanksgiving;
enter his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and bless his name.
5 For the Lord is always good.
He is always loving and kind,
and his faithfulness goes on and on to each succeeding generation.

Prayer:
Father in heaven, thank You for making a way for me to approach You, Holy God, through the death of Jesus Christ in my place.
Thank You for opening the way into Your presence for me.
I come to You today with great thanksgiving.
I bow to You and bless Your name.
Thank You for always being good; for always having my interest at heart and being kind to me.
Thank You for not leaving me out and excluding me, but going out of Your way to include me and be faithful to me.
My heart overflows with thanksgiving for Your great love for me,
In Jesus' name,
Amen.

Tomorrow we'll be back with another meditation about the Lord Jesus Christ!

He Is the King of GLORY!
