It never ceases to amaze me, my faith grows more and more when I read the bible !! The Bible says, “Faith comes from hearing and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17
When Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ate from the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden, man/woman had caused the first sin (which caused separation from God.)
The people of God were told to sacrifice animals to be forgiven of their sins.And through history we see that shedding of blood from a spotless and pure animal is what God required of His people. Each time blood was shed, it reminded the people of life and death. (Found in Leviticus 17:11.)
When King Solomon built the temple of God, there was a veil separating the earthly dwelling place where men dwelt. Only the high priest was permitted to pass beyond the veil (once every year) to make atonement for the sins of the people. The veil was 60 feet high and 4 inches thick. (Found in Exodus 30:10.)
The moment that Jesus was crucified on the cross and gave up His spirit, the veil was torn from top to bottom !! Matthew 27:50-51a. The reason why it is so important to know this is, because Jesus became the ultimate sacrifice of our sins. Jesus paid the total price! Jesus shed His blood on the cross, to allow us to come freely to God and to be forgiven. He was the spotless lamb of God, who became the sacrifice for all mankind.
I am so eternally grateful that He loved me so much to sacrifice Himself, so that I may have an everlasting relationship with God. And to have the choice to spend eternity with our Heavenly Father.
If you have not done so, please read these verses in the bible have mentioned and ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins (disobeying God.) Confess that you believe what He had done for you and for me on the cross and thank Him. Ask Him to come into your heart and cleanse you from all unrighteousness and change you. Getting involved in a church that believes “Jesus died and is the Savior of the world.” This is the most important decision that ever can be made !
Reading the bible, pray (relationship with God) and fellowship with other believers is vital !
Thank you for taking the time to read this and God Bless you !!!
