Happy Easter, Just wanted to share with everyone somethings I receive every day from God's Minute. Take the time to remember that Jesus died on the Cross so that we could be reconciled back to our Heavenly Father.
Now from the sixth hour (noon) until the ninth hour
( 3 P M ) there was darkness over all the land. And
about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a
loud voice, saying, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?"
Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn
in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked,
and the rocks were split.
( Matthew 27:45 & 51 *NKJV )
The Holy Veil being torn from top to bottom
signified God's opening up the Temple [Church] to all
people, Gentile as well as Jew. Thus making us all part
of the Body of Christ!
You see, the temple veil separated the most holy place
called the "Holy of Holies," where God was to reside, from
the people. Only the high priest was allowed to pass behind
the veil, and then only on the "Day of Atonement." (see LEV
16:20) Thus, the people of the Old Testament could only
approach God through a priest and a blood sacrifice to be
forgiven of their sins. A young male lamb was the customary
sacrifice offered for this in the Temple at Jerusalem.
Also of Note; Jesus died exactly at 3 PM, which was the
exact time of the evening sacrifice at the Temple.
Therefore Christ became our sacrifice, for that is why
John the Baptist said; "Behold! The Lamb of God who
takes away the sin of the world! (John 1:29)
when he saw Jesus coming. Also the Apostle Paul wrote;
For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed
for us. Therefore let us keep the feast. Amen
( 1 CORINTHIANS 5:7 )
Have a Wonderful Easter, Friend, and why not attend
the Church of your choice, if you don't already, and
celebrate Christ's Resurrection this Sunday!
Also if you have children, please teach them what
Easter is really all about, so they do not grow up thinking
it is only about bunny rabbits and colored eggs and candy.
