Approval of Man or God

For they loved the approval of men rather than the approval of God. John 12:43

Jesus provided many signs and wonders, he healed the sick, he gave the blind sight, he even resurrected the dead, however the religious leaders wouldn’t accept him as the Messiah (Christ) because they knew what this would mean!

If Jesus fulfilled The Law, if Jesus is our High Priest, if Jesus has torn the veil with God, then why do we still need religion? This is the issue the high priest had with Jesus, they loved their religion, they loved their positions of authority, they loved their traditions, so they can claim to be righteous.

He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day. John 12:48

The religious leaders are trying to earn their salvation through works, however Jesus made it very clear, whoever rejects him is condemned! Nobody comes to the Father except through Christ (John 14:6) You can’t do it, no matter how great your intentions are, or no matter how holy you think you are, you can’t get to God through religion

The veil is torn, meaning you come to Christ directly and you are in the presence of God directly. You are the temple of God, the Holy Spirit dwells in you, your mediator and high priest is Jesus Christ, no man.

Stop trying to earn the approval of man and earning salvation through works, come to Jesus Christ and accept him as your Lord and God Amen!
