BIBLE VERSE FOR TUESDAY

POSTDATED TO CALVARY
This is to be lasting ordinance for you:atonement is to be made once a year for all the sins of the Israelites.
Although covered with gold, the Ark of the Covenant was stained with blood. On the tenth day of the seventh month of every year, the high priest, would enter the Most Holy Place and sprinkle the blood of a bull and a goat on the ark to make atonement with God for his own sin and the sins of the people. This did not take away the sins, but only covered i because it is impossible for the blood of animals to take away sins.
If I write a cheque and thee is no money in my account, nothing would happen. If I postdated the cheque until the time I knew the money would be there that would would pay my bill.
Only at Calvary, when the sinless Son of God was made sin for us, was the debt finally paid. When Jesus cried from the cross, It is Finished, He was declaring for all history to hear. The sin that for centuries has only been covered is now removed. Your debt is paid.
At the moment of true repentance where we willingly turn from our sin and confess it to Christ, the account of the Lord Jesus is credited to our account in full payment of our sin, and we are free.We are no longer in debt and can never be called to account for it again. The ark had to be regularly re-stained with blood so the Israelites could have access to God, but because Christ shed His blood once for all, we are forever forgiven, redeemed and brought back into fellowship with God.
Gracious God, thank You that because of Christ we need not return again and again with sacrifice but can enjoy forgiveness and fellowship with You right here, right now.
