For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us.
For us however, the veil is rent. Jesus entered once into the holy place, and as He passed the heavy folds were rent in twain from the top to the bottom.
Surely no priest that witnessed it could ever forget the moment, when, as the earth trembled beneath the temple floor, the thickly woven veil split and fell back, and disclosed the solemnities on which no eyes but those of the high priest dared to gaze.
Surely the most obtuse can read the meaning signified herein by the Holy Ghost. There is no veil between us and God but that which we weave by our own sin or ignorance.
We may behold mysteries hidden from before the foundation of the world. – F.B. Meyer
Seeing the way to God is clear and open let us come to Him freely, joyously, boldly and in full assurance.
