But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle of made with hands, that is not of creation. Not with the blood of goat and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. Hebrews 9:11, 12
Yom Kippur begins this Wednesday at sundown. We are going to dedicate our Wednesday Evening Service to look back and then forward. Looking back to Moses and Aaron as they were instructed to observe the day of Atonement and forward to Jesus and His completion of Atonement. (Leviticus 16, Hebrews 9)
I hope you can come, or watch online, as we see Jesus.
Seeing Jesus is our way into His fulness. Seeing Him high and lifted up, seated next to Majesty, seeing Him as King and Priest, as the Desire of all Nations, whose voice shakes heaven and earth. Jesus today intercedes for us, bringing us further into His salvation, saving us to the uttermost. Jesus is our forerunner behind the veil, and our merciful and faithful High Priest, who comes to our aide. Here Jesus distributes mercy and grace to us to help in our time of need.
The active ministry of Jesus, as High Priest today, is relevant to every situation that we face on earth and in heaven. We have been given complete access into the holiest by His blood, through the veil of His flesh, and with Him over us as High Priest. There awaits truths of salvation, redemption and eternal inheritance that are ours in Christ.
Isaiah saw the glorified Lord. Afterwards, he couldn’t stop prophesying about Him. (Isaiah 6) No wonder that the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
