Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The LORD Our Peace - The Prince Of Peace - The Just Judge - The Praise Of God - The Perfection Of God
For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation…
God desired to dwell with His people in the Old Testament, and provided instructions to build a structure where His presence would rest among them. Those instructions exposed an issue however. The tabernacle and temple were both built with a “veil” that served to partition the presence of God in the Holy of Holies, from the people. This “middle wall” showed the issue that sin causes – separation from fellowship with God. When Jesus died, this wall was torn in two, from top to bottom, validating Jesus’ identity as the Prince of Peace. His impeccability allows us to be joined to Him. He judged sin, thereby breaking the wall that separated us from Him.
