“And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split.” (Matthew 27:51).
For centuries God’s people were kept out of His present by a curtain. A curtain that hung between the Holy of Holies and the people in the temple. The curtain was a constant reminder that God was not approachable by sinful man. Man on one side, God on the other.
But at the resurrection of Jesus something happen inside the temple. That curtain that stood between God and man was torn in two, from top to bottom. Meaning this was not man’s doing, but God’s. And this curtain now laying in pieces on the temple floor shouted for all to hear, the presence of God is now open to man, through the death of Jesus. Because Jesus died for our sins, so we could be made clean, and walk back into the presence of God. Never to be separated again.
