Noah hid inside of the ark and listened to the sound of rain falling for the first time. He considered the way each droplet so closely resembled the tears that fell from his own eyes and realized that He was weeping with the Creator.
“This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered before us, even Jesus… (Hebrews 6:19-20).”
Behind The Veil is an open expression of my relationship with God. I believe that our walk with Jesus should be a supernatural experience that is grounded in TRUTH and SCRIPTURE. My life vision is that I would step Behind The Veil to tread in heavenly places with Christ and share with the world what He teaches me in His depths of intimacy and love. Beyond this, I would hope that my passion to know Christ would ignite flames in the hearts of others and spur them on to pursue depths of intimacy with Christ that cannot be expressed with words, only through action and life transformation.
So why is this website named, “Behind The Veil”?
When Jesus died on the cross His Spirit was released into the earth to bridge the gap between God and mankind and to open the way into perfect LOVE & INTIMACY. Before the blood of Jesus was poured out, there had been a veil between God and man that kept them from intermingling. Only the High Priest could enter into the experience of God’s heart and emotion, and only once a year, after intense ritualistic cleansing. When Jesus let out His final breath on the cross, Scripture tells us that the veil that once separated the heart of God from mankind was torn top to bottom, leaving an open door for anyone to step into the most Holy place with God.
“Jesus, when He had cried out again with a loud voice, yielded up His spirit. And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many (Mat. 2750-54).”
Now it is our right and purpose to step Behind the Veil and experience the heart of God. No longer do we need to wonder if God is near, or if He is accessible. Through the blood of Jesus we have been given access to enter into the chambers of God’s heart and have open conversation with Him. We also must not forget that our entire purpose on this earth is to to know God and to love Him. We must remember that the physical realm is temporary and that the spiritual realm is eternal. We are spiritual beings who are temporarily abiding in a physical world. It must be our pursuit to be grounded with Christ on the other side of the veil, where our spirituality is revived, awakened, strengthened and defined. We must regain access to our spiritual identity so that we can bring God’s Kingdom to earth through our decisions and actions. I believe that our Christian walk should embody a fight that loosens us from the constraints of this temporal world and fastens us Behind The Veil where we rest with Jesus in heavenly places.
“Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful (Hebrews 10:19-23).”
I believe this website will be an avenue of exploration for hungry believers who long for Christianity to be less of a religious mindset, and more of an experiential journey that finds placement for the blood, sweat, tears and laughter that are the true evidence of one who has come to know Christ.

With clarity, I could see an enormous eagle soaring into view. It looked as if He was ripping through a sheet that divided the physical realm from the heavenly realm as He came bursting through the heavens to take hold of me. I was terrified as I saw gleaming sharp talons ready to pluck me up as if I were His hunted prey. His eyes were fierce and sharp as they narrowed in on me. I squeezed my eyes shut as tight as I possibly could and I prayed for God to save me. Within seconds the eagle crashed into me and grabbed my heart, piercing it with love and ownership. He lifted me up and I sensed weightless freedom as I gazed at His beauty in utter fear and awe.
