Mediator & High Priest

Mediator & High Priest

Good day to you! 

Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus. . . (Hebrews 3:1 NKJV)

Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.  (Hebrews 4:14 NKJV)

But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.  (Hebrews 8:6 NKJV)

But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation.  Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.  (Hebrews 9:11, 12 NKJV)

For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us . . . (Hebrews 9:24 NKJV)

Jesus is our Mediator and High Priest.  With His blood, Jesus entered the Most Holy Place in heaven and poured His blood upon the mercy seat for us.  Now, He appears in the presence of God, representing us before the high court of heaven!

He is the High Priest of our confession, and the Scriptures tell us to HOLD FAST to our confession.  I recommend that you make sure that your confession agrees with the Scriptures so that you give Jesus material that’s trustworthy and eternal to use on your behalf!  Speak forth the promises of God’s Word for yourself and for those who need a miracle–an answer to prayer.  Stand upon the promises of God, and believe . . . KNOW that God’s holy Word is reliable and trustworthy.  It shall come to pass!

Remember that Jesus is the Mediator of a better covenant based upon BETTER promises, so make sure to use those great and precious promises that Jesus has given you!

How to Wait on Answers to Prayer

Blessings to you, friends! 

For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end.  (Heb 3:14 NKJ)  Don’t lose confidence in the Lord Jesus!

You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.  (Isa 26:3 NIV) Steadfast means unwavering, firm, resolute, and committed.

Partaking of (joining with; living through) Christ requires persistence in faith; it’s not merely a one-time event.  We grow both roots and patience in our Christian walk as we stand firm and unwavering in faith.  In other words, we make a decision to take God at His Word.

We pray based upon God’s Word and His promises.  Once we have prayed, and believed God that we HAVE ALREADY received our answer, we stand faithful and immovable, knowing that the answer is assured.  (Mat 21:22; Mk 11:24 NIV) 

God cannot lie.  (Num 23:19; 1 Sam 15:29; Heb 6:18)

Don’t be like an immature youngster in your faith.  Allow God to work in you according to His good pleasure. (Phil 2:13)  If you are awaiting an answer to prayer, having done all that you know to do, then stand and patiently anticipate God’s answer with a sense of joyous expectation. Know that your answer is certainly on its way!

He will never disappoint you.  (Rom 10:11)
