The Mystery of the Torn Veil

Every Christ follower can experience a breakthrough by making three discoveries about the veil.

  1. The Veil’s Purpose
  • Sin has a history of building barriers: The Garden of Eden, The Tabernacle, The Temple
  • The veil was a barrier between sinful man and the presence of the Holy God.
  1. The Veil’s Destruction
  • These barriers between us and God are not how God wanted things to be. He created us for relationship and intimacy and closeness.
  • God has a history of breaking barriers when all seems hopeless: the Red Sea, the Jordan River, Jericho
  • The veil was torn in two from top to bottom—the barrier that separates us from God has been removed by Him. You can’t tear the curtain by yourself.
  1. The Veil’s Invitation
  • As it says in Hebrews 10:20, Christ became the veil.
  • Jesus has restored us and our original design in creation—to be in the presence of God. Not by anything we have done, but by the power and provision of God.

Discussion Questions

  1. Why would we not commit ourselves to draw close to God, to live in hope, when Christ made every accommodation for us to do so?
  2. What is blocking your access to God? 

Through the veil of Jesus the old one is torn down and we have full access—don’t misunderstand it or waste it!
