behold his glory

And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

2 Corinthians 3:18 NIV

A veil in most instances is used to partition, or divide a room into two. My late maternal grandma had a shack house back in the days. That tiny one room was partitioned into two rooms. A kitchen and a bedroom. That way when you were in the bedroom you wouldn’t see what’s happening in the kitchen. On Sundays, we used to wake up to an appetizing aroma of whatever she would be cooking in the kitchen…good old days. Anyway back here… In the Old Testament era, a veil was used to be a divider between the holy place and the Most Holy. You were not allowed to see the Most Holy, as His glory would blind you I guess. We will ask bible scholars the main reason for that.

Now when Christ died on the cross for our redemption, the veil of the temple was torn into two from top to bottom. The veil got destroyed, revealing the Most Holy. Giving us free access to Jehovah. Indeed we are blessed, there is nothing that obscures us from going directly to Him, and He sees and hears us at all times. Our unveiled faces should see His glory each day, each minute, each second and passing hour. We should enjoy His presence in our lives.

Through this removal of the veil, we get transformed and renewed to be our True Self. We are reset to factory settings, to reflect His image. If we humble ourselves and have a spirit of patience we will enjoy His grace. Heaps of grace will abound in our lives. We will be true children of the Most High God. Behold His glory. Be patient with the transformation process, Let God hold your hand.

By this fresh (new) and living way which He initiated and dedicated and opened for us through the separating curtain (veil of the Holy of Holies), that is, through His flesh,

Hebrews 10:20 AMPC


Lord thank You for removing the veil that prevented us from seeing Your glory. As we are being transformed daily, let Thine Will be done in our lives. In Jesus’ name. Amen
