"Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split." - Matthew 27 V51

"Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh." - Hebrew 10 V19

When Christ died on the cross, the veil of the temple was torn from top to bottom, basically opening the access to the Holiest for the children of God. All who believe in Jesus and have received Him into their heart, now can boldly enter into the presence of God. In the days of sacrifice the high priest would enter the holiest once a year and for a brief period and with great fear, but when Christ's body was broken on the cross, so was the veil, and the way to the presence of God was made available to all who trust in Jesus. We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretched like me. Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
