KEY SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 4:15 “For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”
The Lord Jesus as our High Priest is a very significant thing for us as Christians and for all humanity as a whole.
As the high priest he represents us in the, presence of the father, as we represent Him on the earth. (Hebrews 5:1)He is there as a man, mediating between God and men.1 Timothy 2:5 “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”
His role as the high priest makes our actions on earth in His name very effective with a strong divine backing.
Because of Him we have a perfect standing before God. He is the apostle and High Priest of our confession. (Hebrews 3:1), this means all our declarations on earth which are in agreement with His words, are upheld by Him before the father on our behalf.
We must never grow weak in speaking or holding fast our confessions (Hebrews 4:14).
He has entered into heaven as a forerunner for us, giving us that strong assurance and an anchor for our hope of eternal place in heaven (Hebrews 6:20)
Our Lord Jesus as our High Priest is without infirmity, giving us a perfect representation (Hebrews 7:28)
The Lord Jesus is the testator of the testament. This means He is the maker of the will. He is now alive as the High Priest who enforces the will He has put in place which is His word (Hebrews 9:16)
Our Lord Jesus who is presently our High Priest gives us a very strong grounds to pray and get results. We should never feel helpless or victimized, no never!!!
So long as He remains our High Priest, He stands in the presence of the father solely on our behalf to see our claims, prayers, confessions on the earth in His name perfectly answered.
The Lord Jesus is my High Priest, He represents me in the presence of the father, and whiles I stand for Him on the earth in His name. My impact is made stronger on the earth, because He upholds every declaration before the father.
Hebrews 5:1 ” For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins:”
