No More Middle Man

Jesus is Risen!

The tomb could not hold him.  Death had no power over him.

And in one simple sentence often missed, our spiritual lives changed.  Don't miss it's importance.

"At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom." Matthew 27:51

"The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom." Mark 15:38

The need for an intercessor for prayer and forgiveness was gone.  The curtain in the holy temple which separated the people from God's holy presence was torn in two, opening the gates for direct communication with God.  Christ had now become the only sacrifice needed to enter the gates of heaven.

"For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men." I Timothy 2:5-6

It is an unbelievable gift that we can communicate openly with the God of the universe.  The God that made the heavens, the oceans, the creatures big and small; He wants to talk with you.  You don't need an appointment, walk-ins are welcome!
