"Jesus, the Permanent Priest"

“Jesus, the Permanent Priest”


…Because Jesus lives forever, He has a permanent priesthood.  Therefore He is able to save completely those who come to God through Him, because He always lives to intercede for them.       Hebrews 7:24-25



God the Father, made a promise to Jesus His Son, that Jesus would be a priest FOREVER!  Which means that Jesus guarantees us a BETTER covenant with God. 


Because Jesus lives FOREVER, He has a PERMANENT priesthood.  In Old Testament times there were MANY priests, because death prevented them from having a PERMANENT priesthood.  But Jesus provided the perfect sacrifice, that being Himself, and was able to COMPLETE the plan of SALVATION for ALL mankind. 


It was a FINAL act, which did not require the sacrificing of a perfect lamb continually, for the FORGIVENESS of sins.  When Jesus DIED on the cross, and was RESURRECTED from the dead, He COMPLETED the ceremonial provision for the plan of SALVATION with His atoning death.  He sealed the deal, and in doing so, He became the PERMANENT priest, the ONLY one who was able to save completely those who come to God through Him. 


We, TRUE believers, have a much better ACCESS to God because of our FOREVER ADVOCATE, the Lord Jesus Christ, who lives to intercede on our behalf.  We have the ASSURANCE that His interceding for us is what is needed to SECURE our RIGHTEOUSNESS with the Almighty God.  He is TRULY our PERMANENT PRIEST, who will NEVER leave nor forsake us.


If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God then you do not have a RIGHT relationship with Him and cannot have a RIGHT relationship with Him, unless you come to Jesus, the PERMANENT PRIEST, the ONLY ONE, who can COMPLETELY save you and INTERCEDE DAILY on your behalf, in order for you to have that RIGHT relationship with Him.  You must come to Jesus with a TRULY 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, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and have the ASSURANCE and HOPE of your SALVATION, through the PERMANENT PRIEST, Jesus Christ.  Do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
