The Veil was torn…
“But Jesus, with a loud cry, gave his last breath. At that moment the Temple curtain ripped right down the middle. When the Roman captain standing guard in front of him saw that he had quit breathing, he said, “This has to be the Son of God!””
….. At the exact moment of Christ’s death the TEMPLE curtain ripped straight down the middle! Here’s a little history of the temple curtain… it was extremely thick, like it’s one those curtains that if you accidentally run into it, there was no going through to the other side!! So…You get my point.
No human could possibly tear the temple’s curtain, it had to be God. Even a Roman captain Guard exclaimed the JEsus Christ HAS to be the Son of God!
God tore the curtains in a semblance that Jesus created a way for us to have direct communication with him! When the curtains split in half it was as if God was saying… You don’t need a priest to sacrifice an animal for me for your forgiveness, My son died for all sins. You don’t need a priest to communicate to me for you, Jesus showed you how to pray to me.
Prayer is so important in a Christians walk with God. God wants a relationship with his Church and his children. He tore a veil to show all His children that HE DOES want an intimate relationship with us!
