Understanding Mind Veils

2 Corinthians 3:13 unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away. 14 But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. 15 But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. 16Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.


1. A Veil Worn Keeps Others from Seeing (v13)
A literal veil hides us from others
A mind veil keeps others from seeing who we truly created to be

2. A Veil Worn Keeps You from Seeing (v14)
A literal veil interferes with our ability to see.
A mind veil causes us to be blind to what we should see.

Blinded to:

A. Truth About Christ
B. How God Sees People
C. How to View Onself
D. The Deception of Satan
E. New Covenant Grace

We must remember in witnessing to the lost, that they cannot see.
You do not expect a blind man to see what you see.
You relate to the person in terms they understand and lead them.
They need to be able to trust you, not suspect you.

3. A Veil Remaining Hinders (v14-15)
A bride removes a veil when she is carried away by her groom.
To continue to wear a veil hinders intimacy.

In the Old Testament Tavernacle, the Veil was a barrier between God and Man.
Today that veil is in the mind and around the heart.

It is there as a result of sin. Sin separates us from God. Keeps us from God and
from each other.

Even as Christians, we can choose to wear an Old Testament veil which results in:

A, Attitude of Law toward people
B. A Yoke upon oneself
C. A unwhole view of Christ’s redemptive work
D. Striving and Struggling to measure up
E. Competition and Envy

4. A Veil is Removed through Repentance and Faith in Christ (v14 and v16)
Christ the groom removes the veil from his bride’s face
We must continue to ask him to remove the veils we put on areas of our thinking

5. A Veil Removed Results in Revelation (v16)
The field of vision is cleared and uncluttered when a veil is removed.
When a mind veil is removed by Christ, a person begins to see what they have
not seen before. It is awesome.

Jesus said in John 3, We can see the kingdom of God.

-You see the glory of God
