The Torn Veil: A Greater Relationship 

Matthew 27:50-51

50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. 51 And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split.

Psalm 16:11

You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

As Jesus breathed his last on the cross, something extraordinary happened in the temple: the thick veil separating the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place was torn in two from top to bottom. This event was not a mere coincidence or a random act of nature; it was a divine declaration of accessibility.

The veil in the temple symbolized the barrier between God and humanity, representing the separation caused by sin. For many generations only levitical priests had access to God, and even that required a ritual of cleansing.

The veil being torn represents us having direct access to the presence of God. We now have the opportunity to approach God directly, withouta liason.

God’s presence is our ultimate source of joy and fulfillment. Through the torn veil, we are invited into intimate communion with Him, experiencing His love and guidance in every aspect of our lives.

As we rest in Him, may we find peace for our souls and strength for the journey ahead.
