Happy Easter my friends.
Matthew 27:51 “At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split”
When Jesus in Matthew 27:50 “When Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, He yielded up His spirit.…”
The veil split when Jesus yielded his spirit to God. It was his choice to offer a sacrifice of himself that day. To allow the crucifiction of his earthly body. He was beaten, and so weak that even the centurion charged with escorting Christ to the place of his death called upon a member of the crowd to help carry that cross.
Truth be known, God the father had already pre-ordained that Simon of Cyrene be the one to help with the burden of that Cross.
I may not understand the whole situation that led up to Christ death, I do understand why. He did it so that my sins would be atoned for. I believe Jesus is who he says he is. He is risen that is plain and simple truth. Believe it or not. It is your decision to make. I hope you will choose his grace and ask him into your heart as savior. As I have accepted Jesus as my savior.
I wonder about that veil. What does it mean today. Life is yet a thin veil before our face. When we cross from our life here to our life with him we will cross through that torn veil. The veil torn because we are now free. Free because of Jesus.
So happy Easter. It is happy because Jesus didn’t stay in the grave. He arose, paving the way for us to be with him both now and for eternity.
Until next time…
