A Shout of VICTORY
Let us read: Matthew 27:50-55 (NIV)
50 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. 51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and[a] went into the holy city and appeared to many people. 54 When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!”
At his death, “Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit” (Matthew 27:50). I always considered and thought that Yeshua cried out because of the pain he was enduring while being crucified! But his year only a few days ago I believe the Holy spirit revealed another way of understanding the scripture in Matthew 27.
This time I heard it was a shout of VICTORY! – that tore the veil apart forever and reopened the way to God, an instant gateway to heaven. Not only in the temple in Jerusalem but also in the spirit world.
It is by his death on the cross as a ransom that achieves the forgiveness of sins that Jesus accomplishes his mission to save His people from their sins (Matthew 1:21). The veil was a physical, visible barrier indicating that access to God was strictly prohibited because of His holiness. It is imperative to remember that the holiness of God remains unchanged from all eternity even after the veil is torn. What has changed, then, is that the atoning death of Yeshua on the cross has provided an eternal perfect sacrifice, one which the bulls and goats of the old covenant could not provide (Hebrews 10:4).
The author of Hebrews invites us to boldly approach God´s throne: “we have confidence to enter the holy places” (Hebrews 10:19), and this is accomplished by the blood of Jesus. This is the “new and living way” (Hebrews 10:20) that Christ opened for us through the veil, which, the author says, is through his flesh. This means that the breaking of Jesus’s body at the crucifixion is the only means by which believers have access to the presence of God.
We are called to walk in VICTORY! WE are called to shout in VICTORY! Together with Yeshua thanking him for reuniting us with God our ABBA father!
How do we do that on a daily basis? We PROCLAIM His word! Let me encourage you to speak His word!
Allow me to close with the following scriptures that promise VICTORY:
1 Corinthians 15:57
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
2 Corinthians 2:14
But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.
For the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.’
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.
Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, …
I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
