Behold The Blood Of The New Covenant
Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne:
“But He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, waiting from that time onward UNTIL HIS ENEMIES BE MADE A FOOTSTOOL FOR HIS FEET.” For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified”
Hallelujah! Our beloved Lord Jesus Christ has “offered one sacrifice for sins for all time;” that being His Own sinless New Covenant blood (Luke 22:20), shed at Calvary.
Then, in His resurrection, which also took place through “the blood of the eternal covenant” (Hebrews 13:20), Jesus, our “High Priest,” entered the “perfect tabernacle” (Hebrews 9:11) and with “His Own blood, He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption” (Hebrews 9:12).
All of this has happened solely because of our Savior’s perfect obedience to Abba Father. Jesus never sinned and therefore kept His blood pure, thereby fulfilling the old covenant, so He could accomplish the bringing in of a new and better covenant, in His blood, in which we are now graced to live.
In His resurrection, Jesus has become both our “Lord” and “priest forever,” Just as God foretold through David in Psalm 110. Jesus has “sat down” which means that His great work of bringing in a New Covenant is complete, and this also means we are offered a salvation and sanctification which are also complete.
Bless God! Let us all submit to our Lord and His New Covenant today, with a fully yielded, understanding heart and mind.
Let us also submit to Christ our “priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek” (Hebrew 7:17, Psalm 110:4) by actually stepping up ( stepping in) and becoming who we have been saved to be, “A chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s Own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1st Peter 2:9).
