Jesus Christ, the Divine High Priest

He is sinless

Hebrews 7:26

26 For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens; 27 who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.

 

He is eternal

Hebrews 6:20

20 where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

 

Hebrews 5:5-6; 7:17, 21, 28

5:5 So also Christ did not glorify Himself to become High Priest, but it was He who said to Him:

You are My Son,

Today I have begotten You.”

As He also says in another place:

“You are a priest forever

According to the order of Melchizedek”;

 

7:17 For He testifies:

You are a priest forever

According to the order of Melchizedek.”

 

7:21 (for they have become priests without an oath, but He with an oath by Him who said to Him:

The Lord has sworn

And will not relent,

‘You are a priest forever

According to the order of Melchizedek’ ”),

 

7:28 For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints the Son who has been perfected forever.

 

His atoning work was completed once for all

Hebrews 7:27

27 who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.

 

Hebrews 9:12, 25-26, 28; 10:10

9:12 Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.

 

9:25 not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another—26 He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.

 

9:28 so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.

 

10:10 By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

 

He is exalted

Hebrews 8:1

Now this is the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens,

 

Zechariah 6:13

13 Yes, He shall build the temple of the Lord.

He shall bear the glory,

And shall sit and rule on His throne;

So He shall be a priest on His throne,

And the counsel of peace shall be between them both.” ’

 

Hebrews 7:26

26 For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens;

 

Isa. 44:6–8 – 6 Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: ‘I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me there is no God.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
