2 Corinthians 3:15-18
15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart.
16 Nevertheless, when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away.
17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
ref. - Ro 11:23 - And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.
Isa 25:7 - And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all the people, and the veil that is spread over all nations.
What good news we have in Jesus Christ!! What was never achievable now is in Jesus Christ. The law, which once found all guilty of sin, is fulfilled in Jesus Christ. Not abolished, fulfilled! All the while we read the law we read and are informed of our sin, but not redemption. But when the pages of the New Testament in Jesus Christ are opened this will of partition between Gods chosen people and the sinner is torn down. The gifts of redemption and forgiveness are made possible for all in what we are brought by Jesus Christ. We are no longer strangers to the promise, we are no longer ignorant of the goodness and mercy of the Lord. We are graffed in through faith!! Through a mighty Spirit, the Spirit of the Lord we are set free from the bonds of sin that had held us down for centuries! This redemption is not only for new Christians but also offered to those who have refused Christ but acknowledged God. The Jews are able to be given a second chance in Jesus Christ as well. God has all the power and all knowledge, he is omnipotent, so in this we know that he is also capable of all things as well. Today is the day that we let him destroy that mountain of sin that stands in our way and abolish it, cast it into the bottom of the sea, never to return. Today, let us repent, Jerusalem, and let the mountain be moved!! Let Christ open the door that is closed and let him loose the chains that bund us!! Let us be redeemed and grafted in again to the place where we once belonged!! Liberty in Jesus Christ!! It is high time for a great movement of the Spirit of God in the Church so that those who stand outside the gate can see the light and enter in as well! It is high time for us to recognize our faults and acknowledge our shortcomings and be redeemed by the blood of the lamb!! It is high time for us to awake out of our Spiritual slumber and be able to walk and talk and exist without sin in our hearts!! Today is the day of true salvation and the day that true worshippers will spring forth from Jerusalem(the Church) and allow God to use them to share the good news in
Jesus Christ that will remove the veil from all nations, all colors, all creeds, all people!!! Today is that day!!! Jesus died on that cross and gave us all the opportunity to be free.........so let's take it!!! Have a great day!!!
