Jesus Intercedes for Us

"Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us." (Romans 8: 34)

The High Priesthood of Jesus Christ is one of the most neglected subjects in the Body of Christ today.

We need to know that we have an Advocate not just within us, the Holy Spirit, but a representative on our behalf, Jesus, sitting at the right hand of God the Father.

"1My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world." (1 John 2: 1-2)

What causes us not to sin, by the way? Knowing that we have a perfect Advocate on our behalf at the right hand of God the Father.

He is our High Priest, one forever:

"As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec." (Hebrews 5: 6)

Jesus intercedes on our behalf forever:

"15And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest, 16Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life." (Hebrews 7: 15-16)

You have a tireless representative speaking on your behalf today!
