The Veil Was Rent From Top To Bottom

"And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split. The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised," Matthew 27:50-52 ESV

Spurgeon brings this out...

'That rent also revealed all the hidden things of the old dispensation: the mercy-seat could now be seen, and the glory of God gleamed forth above it. By the death of our Lord Jesus we have a clear revelation of God, for He was 'not as Moses, who put a veil over his face.' Life and immortality are now brought to light, and things which have been hidden since the foundation of the world are manifest in Him.' - Charles H Spurgeon

Didn't this act rip open our whole old inner system of thinking and expose it?

The inner chamber in that temple was exposed and glory left it... our body is now a temple for the Holy Spirit to dwell in and we become a light on a hill.

We now have a golden lamp stand that gives off light fed by the Holy Spirit. Our spirit is entwined and intermingled with Him.

There is law (the stones with commandments), authority (the budding rod) and sustenance (a jar of manna) hidden in our mercy seat. The blood has been applied and unlike that stone building God will never leave us or forsake us.
