Jesus was the living sacrifice. He received all the pain that was supposed to be for us. Without holiness no one can see God.
God separate himself to Jesus because he is now getting all the sins of the world in some sense God allow this to happen in order to save us.
Psalm 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
Hebrews 5:7 During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.
In our walk with the Lord we also need to sacrifice our time and effort.
Humility is thinking of others and not himself only.
Jesus was the perfect attonement.
Christ is now opening the gate of heaven to all the believers.
Turn to Isaiah 53:9-12
We will see that the good shepherd lay down his life for his sheep.
Hebrews 9:14 How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death,[a] so that we may serve the living God!
We can now serve the Lord because with Jesus God made us qualified. As the curtain was thorned from up to down it means that God is reaching out to man and not man reaching out to God. Keep in mind that the curtain was thorn from top to bottom and not bottom to top.
We can now pray directly to God.
Hebrews 10:19-22 19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.
The saints in the old testament was risen from the death after the resurrection of Christ.
Daniel 12:2 Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.
The real measure of the person wealth is what they have invested for eternity. When you give tithes to God you're investing for eternity.
Investing upon the Lord is also the same as don't lie and cheat and keeping the commandments of God. All the scriptures should be obeyed. All our labor for the Lord is not in vain. Always give yourself fully to the work of God.
The final test of our faith is not "how much you believe" but "how much you love".
