|Righteousness (Part 2)|
|Romans 10:1-10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Deut 30 references Rom 10:5. One must complete the law in its entirety. No one has been able to keep the law perfectly therefore we are guilty. The works of the flesh will not be accepted as a payment into Heaven. Jesus Christ would have never been sent as a sacrifice if there was another way into Heaven. Do you think you're a good person? If you're trying to get into Heaven by any other way but by Jesus Christ then you're creating a self righteous religion that will get you into Hell. There is a way that seems right but it WILL lead to death, Hell. How many people go to the doctor if they are well? Likewise, how many people will go to Jesus when everything seems to be going good? Most people judge their relationship with Christ by watching others. If that person lives just as good as they do then everything just be ok.
Perfection is the only thing that will go to Heaven. There is not a single person that has mastered perfection. What makes a person perfect is by accepting Christ as their savior. Who in their right mind would say that they would rather go to Hell than to Heaven? Christ has already done everything He can to allow you to go to Heaven.
So how do you get saved? There is one thing required and that's to believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins, Rom 10:9-10;13.

|Numbers 13:23-14:4 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
Only God is sovereign and only He knows our hearts. People usually think that everything goes to Heaven when it dies. Dogs, cats, loved ones and other living things. The truth is that only saved living souls will go to Heaven.
The children of Israel had proof of God, grapes that took two men to carry that they all ate from, water that flowed from a rock once struck by a stick, in the desert a cloud followed them to shade them, fire to guide them by night, food that fell from the sky and yet they did not believe. Still today when God performs miracle after miracle all around you and yet you still don't believe. The question is not about whether God exist but if He's the son of God. We acknowledge that God created the world that we live in because there is proof all around us. We live in His creation, we take the breath that He gives, we see birth after birth and yet we still want MORE proof that He Is God. It only took one negative report for the entire group of Israelites to doubt Gods work.
Each day, each second the adversary is lying to you trying to get you to doubt Gods existence. One can not believe the doubts, lies from the enemy and yet still believe in Christ. If you don't believe the bible simply look towards history, the walls of Jericho fell down. A great and fortified wall which fell by simply walking around it. 40 years the Israel people wondered around in a circle all on the wilderness until all the unbelievers died. Joshua and Caleb was a old man and was forced to wait 40 more years just because others wouldn't believe and yet once the time came they still believed. John 12:42-43 even then people believed in a god but didn't believe in God. You can say all day long that you know or believe in what God can and did do, but in the end, salvation is the only way to Him. Salvation is a confession in Jesus Christ and that He was risen from the grave. Rom 10:8-10 what does the bible say?

|The Mercy Seat of God|
|Hebrews 9:3-5 (Part of the Tabernacle, Covenant and a Priest series).|
Ark of the Covenant
Inside the Ark
The tabernacle and its contents were all directing to something better to come. Don't confuse the burning incense smoke with the mercy seat of God. The burning incense was the prayers of the people interceding to God.
The ark was to contain particular items, a remnant of His promise. It was to be built a particular size and to have a lid, two cherubs and handles in order to carry it. It contained three items, mana. Mana was tried to be stored but it would spoil however this mana was to be stored without it spoiling. Just as today, God has only promised the hour in which you live and nothing more. The also contained a rod, a stick that was cut from a tree. This stick was dead but God made it to bloom showing that He could make something dead to be raised to life. A miracle that only God can perform. Christ has come to save us all from an eternity of death. The third and final item was the Ten Commandments, the Word of God.
Some people believe that if they found the Ark then they would have all the power in the world. However, the Ark is of no more once Jesus made a new way. Crossing the Jordan, the Ark held the water back. Marching around the walls of Jericho the Ark was there and thru the power of the Ark, the walls fell. At one point the Philistines stole the Ark and placed it in their "god's" temple but the next day the Ark destroyed their god. People could not touch the Ark just in the story of when the Ark was about to fall and someone stopped it by touching it and they were slain dead. Even though there was power in the Ark of the Covenant, there is much more power in God's Word, the bible. The bible contains all of the promises of God and His eternal life.
So what's so important about the box, the Ark? We know it's about the covenant or His promise but what else? It's His mercy seat, it's all about mercy. God provides mercy in that very time of need that we ALL can go to Him with our needs of mercy. Romans 3:23 God didn't owe us anything for we had no right to God. But, He has called to us because He loves us.

|Beyond the Veil|
|Leviticus 16:5-22 (Part of the Tabernacle, Covenant and a Priest series).|
Inside the Holy Place
Blood had to be offered before the mercy seat. No one was sinless so the high priest had to cleanse himself then his household, then he could cleanse the people. Only then, offer the sin offering was able to enter the holy of holies to offer it to mercy seat before God.
Jesus our high priest didn't have to offer any blood for himself. Being sinless, His blood was only for us. Jesus' blood cleansed past, present and future sins for all people. The blood of the bullock and goats only paid for past sins.
Because Christ's blood is sufficient for all atonement no matter what we do, we can't lose our atonement. The sacrifice of Jesus was better than any goats blood.
There is a fountain of blood that flows from Emmanuel's veins.
Jesus' blood covers like a flood. We're plunged from head to feet and covered past, present and future, never can be lost.
The second goat was the escape goat. Christ was both our sacrifice and our escape goat.

|2 Corinthians 3:12-18 (Part of the Tabernacle, Covenant and a Priest series).|
Inside the Holy Place
Ex 26:36 the Vail was beautiful in nature. It was to separate the the Holy Place from the Holy of Holy's. There were two vails of separation, one at the temple to separate the Bronze Altar and Laver from the Holy Place and the other from the Holy Place to the Holy of Holy's. The description of Vail is a separation. In this time there was no way to get to God no matter what they did. The Vail separated man from God. They knew during that time that God was always there because of the ever burning fire and smoke that followed. The vails purpose was that to show that no one could get to God but God had a better way planned. In the beginning, God walked with Adam and Eve but something separated them, sin. Mat 27:50-51 Christ died and then something happened to the vail. God raised up a new tabernacle not made by man but by God. Up until the minute that Christ died the tabernacle was used, the fire for the Altar was still stoked, the bread was still made, the lamps still burnt and the incense still smoldered. But when Christ died, it all stopped and the vail was torn in two. At that point God was saying, come in. It was the greatest example of love and making a way for ALL to be saved and be with Him in Heaven. They did try to fix the vail and placed it right back up. In some religions they are still waiting for the Messiah. They are blind to the truth that Christ has already come, died and rose again while we are waiting for His second coming. Isa 59:1-2 everyone is a sinner but thru Christ those sins are washed clean allowing anyone and everyone that accepts Christ to be with God in Heaven for eternity. Still today there is a vail upon many people's heart. That vail separates you from God. God has opened the vail, His vail to all. It's up to you to rip and remove your hearts vail to accept Christ. Psa 66:18 this is the unbelief, the vail that separates you from God.
