Recently, I heard that if you read the Bible from start to finish, and pray, God would give you revelations about His Word.
1 "Blessed is the man . . . 2 . . . (whose) delight is in the law of the Lord, And on His law [His precepts and teachings (commandments)] he meditates day and night."
"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou know not." Jeremiah 33:3
Did you know that reading God's Word, the Bible, is how He talks to us, and that prayer is how we talk to Him? These two combined are how we open up the communication airways for God to show us great and mighty things.
Anyway, so I started reading the Bible, Genesis, about 10 days ago. Somewhere around Deuteronomy is when things got supernaturally weird. I mean, our God is a supernatural God, right? And, His Word is alive! Hebrews 4:12
Now, before this incident, the only Biblical veil I was aware of was the veil Moses used to cover God's glory (Shekinah) that radiated from his face after leaving God's presence. 34 . . . "When he came out and he told the Israelites what he had been commanded [by God], 35 the Israelites would see the face of Moses, how his skin shone [with a unique radiance]. So Moses put the veil on his face again until he went in to speak with God." Exodus 34
Around the weekend of August 21, 2021, during Hurricane Henri, which hit areas of the northeast hard, but pretty much missed us, I felt very oppressed, depressed, suppressed and repressed, and my husband felt it as well, even to a greater degree.
Now, I am a firm believer that people turn to God the most in despair, so sitting next to my husband at the computer desk, I grabbed his hand and began praying out loud. It was not long before we were both sobbing, as I was trying to get the words out. Repenting, begging for forgiveness, crying out for His Glory. Of course, I had no specific idea of why I was doing that, at that moment. I now believe God (God's Spirit) willed it.
Later that night, when we talked about it again, I said it felt like a veil over me, and my husband agreed, it felt like a veil. We went to bed, and had an uneventful sleep.
I believe it was a couple of days later, around August 23, my husband said, the veil is gone, and I agreed.
"but whenever a person turns [in repentance and faith] to the Lord, the veil is taken away." 1 Corinthians 3:16
God is Great All The Time, and He is Truly Amazing! Hallelujah! Praise God!
Fast forward about five days. I am still reading the Bible start to finish, and I am up to Joshua now, and I came across the following Scripture:
2 Corinthians 3
14 "But [in fact] their minds were hardened [for they had lost the ability to understand]; for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remains unlifted, because it is removed [only] in Christ.
15 But to this day whenever Moses is read, a veil [of blindness] lies over their heart;
16 but whenever a person turns [in repentance and faith] to the Lord, the veil is taken away.
17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, true freedom].
18 And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror (reflection) the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit."
"We . . . reflect the Lord's Glory." 2 Corinthians 3:18
All Glory and Praise to God in the Highest. Hallelujah! Thank you, heavenly Father, for all of our blessings, of which we were unworthy sinners, but are now redeemed through the blood of Jesus Christ.
Thank you, Jesus, my Savior!
Amen! Amen! Amen!
Born again and redeemed by the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
“But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:”
1 Peter 1:19
