ad. 6. Mark 15:37-41 = Crucifixion misery about His death.Mark 15:37-38
15:37 And Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and breathed His last.
15:38 Then the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom
When Jesus breathed His last, the veil of the temple was torn.
After the veil of the temple was torn,
the Most Holy place (= the perfection) and the Ark of the Covenant will be seen.Exodus 26:33-3426:33 "And you shall hang the veil from the clasps. Then you shall bring the ark of the Testimony in there, behind the veil. The veil shall be a divider for you between the holy [place] and the Most Holy.
26:34 "You shall put the mercy seat upon the ark of the Testimony in the Most Holy.
The ark of covenant consists of 2 main components as follows:
31:20 [Is] Ephraim My dear son? [Is he] a pleasant child? For though I spoke against him, I earnestly remember him still; Therefore My heart yearns for him; I will surely have mercy on him, says the LORD.
- The mercy seat.
25:16 "And you shall put into the ark the Testimony which I will give you.
25:17 "You shall make a mercy seat of pure gold; two and a half cubits [shall be] its length and a cubit and a half its width.
25:18 And you shall make two cherubim of gold; of hammered work you shall make them at the two ends of the mercy seat.
The lid of the ark of covenant is made of pure gold, refers to the Substance of God. There are 2 cherubim of gold upon the ark of covenant.
Meaning: The first cherub refers to God the Father, the mercy seat with the splashing blood refers to the Son of God, and the second cherub refers to The Holy Spirit.
Therefore, the lid of the ark covenant is the Lord Jesus Christ, King of kings, and the Perfect Heavenly Bridegroom.
- The ark of covenant.
25:10 "And they shall make an ark of acacia wood; two and a half cubits [shall be] its length, a cubit and a half its width, and a cubit and a half its height.
25:11 "And you shall overlay it with pure gold, inside and out you shall overlay it, and shall make on it a molding of gold all around.
The ark is made of acacia wood overlaid with pure gold inside and out.
The acacia wood refers to the sinful people.
The acacia wood overlaid with pure gold inside-out refers to the sinful people overlaid by the Substance of God (The holiness of God) until become perfect like Jesus, namely the Heavenly Bride.
No matter how great or successfulpeople in this world are, human without being overlaid by the substance of God is fragile. They will collapse and perish ternally.
Because of Jesus' death, the ark of covenant has been seen, it means we get a chance to be purified becoming perfect like the acacia wood overlaid with the substance of God.
5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,
5:26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,
Jesus has already been crucified to cleanse our life. If Jesus had not given His soul, the veil would not have been torn so we would not have had sanctification even perfection in our life.
Cleansing, washing, and sanctifying means overlaying the acacia wood with pure gold. It means Jesus is adorning our outside-inside lifewith the power of The True Teaching Word (The Word sharper than any two-edged sword) until becoming beautiful, perfect like Jesus.
I Peter 3:3-4
3:3 Do not let your adornment be [merely] outward arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on [fine] apparel
3:4 rather [let it be] the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible [beauty] of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
Let us become gentle and quie the inside adornment):
Being gentle means capability to receive the teaching Word no matter how hard it is, not being temperamental.
Being quiet means silent, not giving much comment about the Word (not complaining), more often worshiping God and surrendering whole life to God.
I Peter 3:5-6
3:5 For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands,
3:6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.
After we had the inside adornment, there will be the outside adornment i.e. being obedient until the flesh does not sound anymore.
2:8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to [the point of] death, even the death of the cross.
2:9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,
2:10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,
2:11 and [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
The results are :
- The name of Jesus is entrusted to our life. In the name of Jesus, there is the power of victory. By being obedient to God, there will be solution.
Being obedient solves all problems. Being obedient is the beginning of success.
- The name of Jesus is sealed in our life.We experience the power of protectionfrom all accident, distress, even the protection from Antichrist and punishment.
9:3 Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
9:4 They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
- The name of Jesusis attached to our name, means there are the power of preservation, the power of purification, also the purification of reproach.
4:1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, "We will eat our own food and wear our own apparel; Only let us be called by your name, To take away our reproach."
31:19 Surely, after my turning, I repented; And after I was instructed, I struck myself on the thigh; I was ashamed, yes, even humiliated, Because I bore the reproach of my youth.'
When there is no sins in our life, we will be loved by God.
God blesses us.
