02 Sep Matthew 27:51
51 And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth shook and the rocks were split. Matthew 27:51
On the day Jesus was crucified the sky went black. As He died on the cross the earth shook and the rocks were split. Matthew also describes tombs breaking open and even some of the saints were raised from the dead. (See Matthew 27:52) This was no ordinary day and no ordinary death. The veil separated the people from God. Only the High Priest could enter, and even then only with strict rules. That veil was torn in two and we can have access to God thru Jesus’ death! In fact, not only do we have access to God, but check out Romans 6:23. Jesus paid the price for our sins thru His death AND He made a way for us to spend eternity in Heaven if we trust in Him! Are you ready to make that decision to trust in Jesus today?
