They also make use of the open and closed positions described earlier, but place
them in the context of movement. These gestures are called the Signs of the
Rending and the Closing of the Veil. To make the Sign of the Rending of the Veil,
from the standing posture, place your hands in the closed position described
above. Turn your hands so that the fingers point forward, as though you were
slipping them through the opening in a curtain. Then pull the Veil open,
extending your arms ...

(Exodus 13:2) You shall set apart to the Lord all that first opens the womb. All the
firstborn of your livestock that are males shall be the Lord's. (Exodus 13:12) This
expression is a metaphor for childbirth but at the same time it also raised
theological concerns linked to Mary's role as mother of the Son of the Most High.
NOTE 18c. Rending the veil of the sanctuary Mary's firstborn—the first to open
her womb—will cause Mary's hymen to be ruptured if she gives birth as every
woman gives ...

(2 Cor. 4:3,4) This passage does not merely concern the veil which is over those
who follow Judaism without Christ, but also the veil over the hearts of all mankind
. Any fleshly veil will prevent fellowship with God unless it is rent, and this rending
occurs simply “when one turns to the Lord.” The veil in the natural temple was
rent. This symbolized the rending of the veil in the spiritual House of God, which
now gives us “boldness of access” into the throne of grace (Eph. 3:12, Heb. 4:16).

There are three things to be noticed here as immediately following the death of
our Lord as of a remarkable character. The first thing is rending the veil; second,
the graves opening; and third, the centurion's confession of Him, not as the Son
of Abraham, but as Son of God. I should like to look at the truth connected with
rending the veil as being connected with the religion of the flesh; not only
Judaism, but all of man's religion on the earth. Man had proposed a place where
he could meet ...

Simultaneously with the death of Jesus Christ, the veil was rent. Matthew wrote, "
And, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom; and
the earth did quake, and the rocks were split" (Mt. 27:51). Many critics of the Bible
have denied that the tearing of the veil was an act of God, but there is too much
evidence to the contrary. Some credit the earthquake that occurred at Christ's
crucifixion for rending the veil, but this would have been impossible. The veil may
