Behind The Veil

Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh. —Hebrews 10:19-20

In the Old Testament covenant, no one was allowed behind the veil of the “Holy of Holies”. The “Holy of Holies” was the holiest, purest, sacred and most consecrated place where only the high-priest was allowed to enter-in once a year. It was so pure that if the sin offering was not accepted for any reason, the high-priest would fall down dead on the spot. He would then be literally pulled-out, better yet dragged by a rope that was tied around him each and every time before he would enter behind the veil into the “Holy of Holies”—just in case the high-priest forgot and violated the great honor of entering-in.

In the New Testament, God in the form of man through Jesus Christ did away with the veil once and for all by dying on the cross of Calvary. His sacrifice tore and removed the veil forever and man was now allowed access to go behind the veil and enter into the “Holy of Holies” where they can meet with God on a one to one basis. But it took the sacrificial death of a pure and holy God-man to make the neccessary eternal payment for our sins so that we may obtain unlimited access behind the veil.

In marriage we all know that the bride always wears a white dress and a veil that covers her face. The white dress symbolizes that she has kept herself sexually pure, untouched, sanctified or set-apart and undefiled by any other man. When the Bride walks down the aisle in her beautiful white dress she is declaring to her husband to be and everyone present, that she has kept herself sexually pure for her husband.

Upon hearing the words, “I now pronounce you husband and wife, you may kiss the bride”, the husband will then lift the veil that has been covering his now wife’s face and they have their very first kiss as husband and wife. Now please pay close attention men, as we discuss the huge honor that your wife has bestowed upon you. It is an honor that must not be taken lightly or of no consequence. Using the same principles of the veil that separated us from a pure God, we will see what an amazing and wonderous gift we as men are given on our wedding day.

When for the first time the husband lifts his now wife’s veil and she willingly allows him to do so, she is granting him full-access to her secret-place, her own “holy of holies”. This is a place where no other man has ever been allowed to enter before. It is “virgin” and “untouched” territory. With this act she is unlocking herself completely without reservations to you her husband. This honor is consummated in the marriage-bed the first time that you make-love with your wife. The trust that she has granted you must never be betrayed or taken for granted. It must never be devalued, dishonored, devalued or degraded by cheap antics or infidelity. This eternal privilege must never be misused or abused in any way, shape or form.

While there is so much more to say on this topic of “Behind the Veil”, I think this is enough to get you to think about the great honor, respect, love and responsibility that as a husband you must have for your wife. It is no small matter to give oneself away as a wife does, yet out of the millions of men in the world she has done it for you. Never forget that glorious, exciting and special day that you lifted your wife’s veil, saw her face and kissed her lips as your wife for the very first time, for it was then and there that she allowed you full and complete access to enter and live in her secret place, her own “holy of holies” “Behind the Veil”—cherish her forever and that memory “till death do you part”.
