Veil Was Torn

And the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. Mark 15:38

One of the many things Jesus accomplished at the cross was he tore the veil. So what does this mean? Before Christ, you could only worship God at the Holy Temple. At the temple there was a giant veil, which only the high priests were allowed to go behind. Behind that veil was the presence of God. In order to get to God, you needed to go through the high priest at the temple.

But at the cross Jesus has ended all of that. By his blood, he made a new covenant that we worthy to stand before the presence of the Holy One. No longer is your relationship with God limited to a temple and a veil. You are now the temple of God and the Holy Spirit dwells in you!

What Jesus did by tearing the veil, was he has allowed us to have a personal relationship with God. No longer is God some distant figure, the Spirit of the Living God now lives in you. Wherever and whenever you go, God is with you!

Jesus is the only one who could “tear the veil”, he is our high priest (Hebrews 4:14), our mediator (1 Timothy 2:5), he is our chief cornerstone (Ephesians 2:20) Worship God in Spirit and Truth in Jesus Name Amen
