“The Perfect High Priest”
Such a high priest truly meets our need---one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens. Unlike the other high priests, He does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for His own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when He offered Himself. Hebrews 7:26-27
Jesus has many titles and positions, but the one that is probably the most beneficial to mankind is His title and position of High Priest. As a High Priest, He not only meets the qualifications of a High Priest, but He goes BEYOND those qualifications. He is HOLY, BLAMELESS, PURE, SET APART FROM SINNERS, and EXALTED ABOVE THE HEAVENS.
He does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for His own sins, and then for the sins of the people, because He who knew NO SIN, became SIN, by being the PERFECT SACRIFICE, Himself. And taking on the SINS of ALL MANKIND from Genesis to Revelation, and who is a ONCE FOR ALL, sacrifice, which is PERFECT and COMPLETE, makes it a ONE time SACRIFICAL ACT that secures ETERNAL SALVATION for ALL who come to Him for the FORGIVENESS of their sins.
His SUFFERING and SACRIFICIAL ACT, made ONCE FOR ALL, makes Him the PERFECT HIGH PRIEST, who is HOLY, BLAMELESS, PURE, SET APART FROM SINNERS, and EXALTED ABOVE THE HEAVENS, yet, He was tempted as mankind is tempted, but He NEVER fell to ANY temptation, and remains SINLESS and PURE, HOLY and RIGHTEOUS.
Jesus Christ, the PERFECT HIGH PRIEST, seated at the right hand of the Holy God of the Universe, interceding for ALL TRUE BELIEVERS, gives them the CONFIDENCE and ASSURANCE of their SALVATION, and He is the DOOR to the throne room of Heaven, of which is the ONLY WAY to enter God’s presence.
Have you come to the PERFECT HIGH PRIEST seeking the CONFIDENCE and ASSURANCE of a SALVATION experience? If not then you are LOST and on your way to Hell, the place of ETERNAL torture, torment, heartache, pain, agony, and despair. However, you are being given the opportunity NOW, to TURN AWAY from your sins and to TURN TO the PERFECT HIGH PRIEST, who gave His life, so that you might have ETERNAL LIFE in Heaven. To do that you MUST come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, interceding for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become part of God’s Holy Family. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
