Messiah was Proved

Explicit command had been given to Moses concerning this. The High Priest was never to have his clothes rent:
Leviticus 10:6 And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest ye die, and lest wrath come upon all the people: but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the LORD hath kindled.

Mark 15:37-38 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.
Many overlook the significance of the veil of the temple tearing from top to bottom. This is the veil that separated the Holy of Holies from the inner court of the Temple. The veil was a curtain from floor to ceiling that separated the Holy Place from the Holy of Holies. This veil was 60 feet high, 30 feet wide and 3 feet thick. It was no ordinary feat to tear it in two even if you started from the bottom rather than the top!

Isa 6:1 ¶ In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.

Only supernatural power could have done this and this act of God alone proves the Messiah.

Hebrew customs tell us that the veil was actually called the "hem of God's garment." At this point, please  read the meanings that I’ve listed for the word "train".

07757 is Strong’s Hebrew for “train”  shuwl shool
from an unused root meaning to hang down; a skirt; by implication, a bottom edge:--hem, skirt, train.
1391 is Strong’s Greek for “train” More can be read at -

It is apparent that the High Priest did a very dire thing in rending of the cloths of the High Priest he was wearing. Who was right and who was wrong in all this? It was a super beyond man feat to rend the veil in half. It tells me this -

In ancient Israel, rending your clothing was what you did as a sign of mourning. A sign of grief mixed with deep regret. Rending your clothes was a ritual sign of heartbreak.

Well, if the Temple was where God lived (and this was the belief of the time), the veil was God's garment. The rending of the veil was the rending of God's clothes (so to speak). It's a visible action of grief. At that very moment in time, He was mourning the loss of His Son, as haMashiach [the Messiah] willingly laid down His life for us!!

I would never presume to know what was running through God’s mind at that moment, but I’d imagine He was thinking something along the lines of "Look! That’s My Son who’s being murdered over there!"

Many believe the Jews at that time where in the right and Jesus was an imposter and blasphemer. For me I am not of that persuasion but am convinced Jesus, Yahshua was the true Redeemer come as set forth by Isa. Chap. 53, a short chap. re-read it again and see it you don’t find it to be an accurate prophecy of Jesus as the Messiah, Saviour, another gospel before Mat., Mark, Luke and John.

The following verses prophecied it precisely and an explanation of those verses will be following.

Da 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
Da 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
Da 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
Da 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate
