What is The Veil
God could not change Himself, so to process you into the fullness of Life He changed your perception of Himself.
God had to let a veil of distortion come over your own human mind, before He could approach you, then He would rend that veil a little at a time so as to not destroy you, for if He broke forth on us all at once in our temporal condition it would have destroyed us. All God has done was for our own good.
What was the darkness the Bible says God hid Himself within?
It was YOU! It was the unbelief in your very own heart.
God suffered the Serpent to entice Eve, so a veil would come over your eyes, so He could approach you and come inside of you and then from within you, reveal Himself from inside of you.
The veil caused the True Image of God to be distorted to your own mind.
Now God takes that darkness and turns it into Light.
How? By Faith from your heart, be sending you His own Word which causes Faith in the heart. Then what you seen as Evil and Satan and Sin and Darkness slowly begins to dissolve as the Image of God appears from behind that veil as it departs.
In other words your own mind and thoughts is what is keeping you from seeing God.
When you read the Word and try to interpret it, it blinds you further.
So what is one to do? Count what you know as dung and take the word for what it says, it interprets itself.
The Word says for you and I to cast down any and every thought that is not the Word of God and to begin to think as the Word says. Then we are taking on the Mind of Christ which reveals the Word of God.
