The veil is taken away

Moses condescends to the foot of the mountain
His face shining out of the darkness and tempest
A veil restricts the view of glory
By closed minds and blinded hearts.

Jesus condescends to the foot of the mountain
His face bloodied by an evil crown
A veil restricts the view of glory
By closed minds and blinded hearts.

Jesus draws up to Himself a different people
His face shining till there is no darkness
There is no veil to restrict the glory
For hearts who have turned to behold His face.

The veil

IMG_3197-0.JPG

Just the other day, 31 years ago 
I saw her tears through her veil
Tears that the sun shone through
As she walked down her aisle
Towards me.

A precious veil
That only two can know.

The veil made her face look white
As if it was a light source.

Through that veil 
She made made her promises
Her vows
That she now fulfills.
Every day 
Every event
Every relationship
Every pain
Every joy.

Through that veil
Through joyful words
Yet trembling voice
Came an ancient yet present commitment.

Through the veil, a bride makes her promise
After the veil is lifted, the promise is kept.

Two become one.
Life is shared.

Just like when one turns to Jesus
The veil is lifted, and
Two become one
Life is shared…

Within the veil.

And Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and breathed His last. Then the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. (‭Mark‬ ‭15‬:‭37-38‬ NKJV)

by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, (‭Hebrews‬ ‭10‬:‭20‬ NKJV)

and behind the second veil, the part of the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of All, (‭Hebrews‬ ‭9‬:‭3‬ NKJV)

Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. (‭II Corinthians‬ ‭3‬:‭16‬ NKJV)

“For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭5‬:‭31-32‬ NKJV)
