God removes the veil and there we are—face-to-face! We suddenly recognize that God is a living, personal presence, not a piece of chiseled stone. And when God is personally present, a living Spirit, that old, constricting legislation (of Judaism, of religion, and of the church) is recognized as obsolete. We’re free of it! All of us! Nothing between us and God, our faces shining with the brightness of His face! 2 Cor. 3:16-18.
