"And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent" Matthew 27:51
Yesterday we talked about prayer being a spiritual "hot spot" where we can get a "connection" to the Presence of God. In the Old Testament there was only one "hot spot"- it was behind the veil where the Holy of Holies was. The priest was the only one who was allowed access to it, and then only once a year, and only after he had gone through certain ceremonial rituals. No one else had the opportunity to this "connection".
Recently, I was at a place of business and tried to connect to the wifi. I tried and tried yet could not get connected. Finally, I asked the receptionist if there was a password to be able to get connected. She said it was and gave it to me. I put the password in and was instantly connected.
When Jesus was crucified, the veil was torn and the place where the Holy of Holies was was now accessible to anyone who desired to come into the Presence of God. Jesus became the "password". He became the "access". He became the "connection". He became the "hot spot". We can enter into the Presence of God through and because of Him.
God's Presence is now available to all who would come to Him. There is nothing standing in the way. Whosoever will can "connect" to Him. It is a priviledges that has been granted to us. When I connect to the wifi at a place of business it doesn't cost me anything, the business pays for the service. I just get to enjoy the benefit. It didn't cost me anything to have access into the presence of God. Jesus paid for it and if I will take advantage of it I can enjoy the benefit-- communion with the Father, being in His presence, enjoying fellowship with Him.
Have a great day. A connection to the Father has been provided for us through Jesus. When we take advantage of it, we can enjoy the benefits that come from having access.
