Rend Your Heart

There is a place where the Lord desires us to rend our hearts, to tear our hearts like He tore the veil at the cross.

“Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh.” Hebrews 10:19-20

The writer of Hebrews tells us that there is a direct representation of Jesus being the Veil, and the Veil being torn at the time of His death on the Cross. In the sacrifice of His life, and taking the sin of mankind on His shoulders, Jesus had removed the Veil that separated God from man and at the same time kept mankind from boldly seeking intimacy with God, an intimacy that had been hidden from man for the four thousand years since the “fall” in the garden of Eden.

He pursued you so hard even unto the tearing of His body, think of the ‘passion of the Christ.’ And now there is need of such passion on your part, to access what has been given to you. He didn’t go to the cross to have you in heaven, He went to have you now, but you must come to Him.

Really cry out and seek God, stir yourself up. There is a popular prayer asking Him to ‘rend the heavens’ but in response he says rend your hearts and I will. Often the breakthrough and the experience of God comes after serious pursuit.

It comes down to Jer 29:13 You will seek me and find me if you seek with all your heart. This implies sometimes we seek Him and don’t find because we don’t seek with all of our hearts. Jesus said the greatest commandment is loving Him with all of our hearts, holding nothing back (Mat 22:38).
