What Does The Tearing Of The Temple Veil After Christ Death Represent? by FaithfulServant(m): 3:28pm On Jun 15, 2018
Matthew 27:50-51 KJV
Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. [51] And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

Virtually all scriptures and verses in the Bible symbolizes something or has a specific meaning and the veil tearing into two after Jesus had given up the ghost is not an exception (Mark 15:38).

The tearing of the Temple veil was an act of God who likes using symbolism to pass across a message because God Himself is a great teacher (Exodus 4:12).

Now to the topic. Before the Lord God sent forth His Son Jesus to die for us on the cross for the remission of sins (John 3:16), there was a type of atonement done in the old Testament for the forgiveness of the sins of the children of Israel (Leviticus 4:20). In this atonement, a person from the tribe of Levi is appointed to act as an high priest and Aaron with sons were the first priests of those days (Exodus 28:1).

Whoever sin against God as commanded by God, is made to bring Lamb without blemish to be offered as sin offering for the atonement of his sins (Leviticus 4:32). This atonement is done in a tent called the Tabernacle and inside this Tabernacle is a place called the holy of holies protected by a veil or what we now know as curtain (Hebrews 9:3). The holy of holies is where the presence of God duel and only the high priest had access to it once a year to make atonement first for himself before making atonement for his people (Hebrews 7:27).

We can see from the explanation above that only one set of people had access to God— High Priests. But the tearing of the Temple veil immediately after Christ death signifies that the veil protecting the holy of holies where the presence of God duel is now open to all. That means anyone including you and I can now have access to God and not restricted to the high priests alone.

It now means that you yourself can now boldly come to the throne of God after you have forsaken your sins and repent of them, accept Jesus into your life and also through prayer (Hebrews 4:16).

1 Peter 2:9 KJV
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Let Catholics faithful get this in to their head and stop going on confession to a reverend father to confess their sin to him. The bottom line is that the tearing of the temple signify their is no barriers between us and God
