God doesn't like pretty curtains anymore


When Solomon was building the temple he hung a spectacular curtain across the entrance to the most holy place. Across the entrance of the Most Holy Place he hung a curtain made of fine linen, decorated with blue, purple, and scarlet thread and embroidered with figures of cherubim. - 2 Cron 3 v 14

No matter how beautiful this curtain was it didn't represent the heart of God.

  • It created a division between God and His people.
  • It put God's relationship with His people in the hands of a select few.
God revealed his true heart when on the death of His Son this curtain was cut in half from top to bottom.

At that moment the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. - Matthew 27 v 51

God signals his intent that the way to God was open to all irrespective of colour, gender, nationality, good or bad. No one ever needed to have a second hand relationship through priest, father, prophet, pastor or leader ever again.

Don't hang up another curtain by handing your relationship with God to someone else.
