Matthew 27:51, "Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to bottom..."this demonstrated that God had opened up access to Himself through His Son.

See Hebrews 6:19, and Hebrews 10:19-22.

Romans 3:29,30 "Or is He the God of the Jews only? Is He not also the God of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also, since there is one God who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith."

1Corinthians 15:1-4, "Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you -unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures" (He also shed His Precious Blood) 

2Timothy 3:16, "All scripture is given by the inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof and correction, for instruction in righteousness."

I believe that this statement is valid for all true believers in Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus declared it finished.

Also the opposite is true..God is God and He cannot lie!

Numbers 23:19, "God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?"

Paul states, “But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, although a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among the others and now share in the branches” (Romans 11:17). 

Anyone who places their faith in God and calls for His mercy, is someone who is called by His name. 

"If my people, who belong to me, 1 humble themselves, pray, seek to please me, and repudiate their sinful practices, then I will respond from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land." 

1 Heb “over whom my name is called.” The Hebrew idiom “call the name over” indicates ownership. See 2 Sam 12:28. THE SEAL OF THE HOLY SPIRIT INDICATES OWNERSHIP AS WELL (Eph. 1:13-14; 4:30; 2 Cor. 1:22; 2 Tim. 2:19). If you have been saved by Jesus Christ, then you have been sealed with/in the Holy Spirit. The Spirit Himself (God Himself) is that seal. 

"When we, as God's people, humble ourselves, pray, and turn from our wicked ways, we can trust in God's promise to bring healing and restoration to our lives and the world around us.Mar 30, 2023
