Before Jesus gave His life on the cross there was a physical separation between man and God. It was called the veil or the curtain. Only priests that had been chosen by God were granted access beyond the veil into the Holy of Holies. In this place the men were able to commune with God. At Jesus’ death the veil was ripped into two pieces, ridding the physical barrier between God and man.
But even though the veil has been removed sin didn’t cease when Christ died. That spiritual partition still remained. Only the acceptance of Jesus’ sacrifice tears down the spiritual veil that stands between you and Jesus. Jesus has completed his part in clearing the path to His throne. Neither a physical or spiritual barrier has power to stand between you when his blood is applied to you life and your sin is forgiven.
