Second Corinthians Chapter 3 verses 14 through 16
But the people’s minds were hardened, and to this day whenever the old covenant is being read, the same veil covers their minds so they cannot understand the truth. And this veil can be removed only by believing in Christ. Yes, even today when they read Moses’ writings, their hearts are covered with that veil, and they do not understand. But whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.
Veil- mask, scarf, kerchief, envelop, surround, swathe, enfold, cover, conceal, hide, screen, shield, cloak, blanket, shroud; obscure
STEP 2- Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. ( Worlds Big Book)
You will never live life to the fullest until you discover, admit, believe, and take off the mask so to speak. We all hide behind self made masks thinking people cant see the Who I really am. The same is true in our Spiritual lives and because we cant see the truth we become frustrated and hardened by the world and its disappointments. Fumbling around doing a million different things to find peace but all we find is stress and sorrow.There a million and one ways to deal with this Spiritual blindness ! Mine was trying to numb it with chemical substances ,the only problem was that only made my life even messier .I wish ,I could speak a word and your Spirit would awaken so your suffering would end ! It is up to you and God to get this and receive this truth. This Truth is spoken about in step 12 but you are going to have to go through hell on earth .We see the world with a distorted view because we are ruled by sinful desires created by our spiritual enemy and if he can keep you blind to Gods Spiritual truth he will ruin your life cause your premature physical death and ultimately win your soul . Turning to the Lord like the Big Book says is the only way the veil will be removed and you can take off that mask and live your God promised life that was predestined for you by your loving heavenly Father and His Soul Saving Son Jesus Christ who Died your death on the Cross because you broke the law He didn't !
