God himself made a promise when this priest was appointed. But he did not make a promise like this when the other priests were appointed. The promise he made is, “I, the Lord, promise that you will be a priest forever! And I will never change my mind!”
This means that Jesus guarantees us a better agreement with God. There have been a lot of other priests, and all of them have died. But Jesus will never die, and so he will be a priest forever! He is forever able to save the people he leads to God, because he always lives to speak to God for them.
Jesus is the high priest we need. He is holy and innocent and faultless, and not at all like us sinners. Jesus is honored above all beings in heaven, and he is better than any other high priest. Jesus doesn’t need to offer sacrifices each day for his own sins and then for the sins of the people. He offered a sacrifice once for all, when he gave himself. The Law appoints priests who have weaknesses. But God’s promise, which came later than the Law, appoints his Son. And he is the perfect high priest forever. -Hebrews 7: 21
There were so many candidates for the position of eternal intercession between man and God. But none qualifed for the job because none raised from the dead to continue the job they have started on earth in heaven.
Only Jesus qualifies since death cannot hold him in the grave. Therefore, he continues what he was doing on earth in heaven. He used to intercede for our faith when he lived on earth and now he intercedes for the entire world by siting on the right hand of his father. If any one comes to him by faith, believing that Jesus died the death of a sinner, he is able to save them from eternal death through the blood he shed on that cross.
The other qualification for the job of intercession is purity before God. No one is pure since all have sinned against God. Only Jesus is holy and innocent before God. He is the only one on earth and heaven who is able to come between the sinner and the wrath of God, which is like fire predestined to do justice for God is holy.
We praise God for sending his son to die on the cross for the sake of the sinner and design a way to establish eternal friendship with him through Christ Jesus who is our high priest. He always intercedes for us when we got in trouble and prepares a way out.
What I mean is that we have a high priest who sits at the right side of God’s great throne in heaven. He also serves as the priest in the most holy place inside the real tent there in heaven. This tent of worship was set up by the Lord, not by humans. - Hebrew 8: 1
The priesthood of Jesus Christ is eternal. Jesus Christ is the same today, tomorrow and forever. He doesn’t change. The only thing that is needed from us is to believe in him who is faithful to bring peace to our lost soul.
That God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. -
2 Corintians 5:19
God reconciliation is from him, by him and to him. Salvation is designed, prepared and executed by God.
Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. - 1 John 5:12
There is no other option to be saved and escape from the eternal death. There is no alternative other than Jesus that God has prepared for humans to be saved. No Jesus, No life. Period.
For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. - Matthew 16
The best thing you can do to save your life from the danger of eternal fire is lay it on the hand of Jesus Christ. Any other option we take to save it is a guarantee for death. Jesus will never let you down. Once you put your trust on him, he is faithful to keep it safe and be able to present it to the father.
For, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” - Romans 10:13
Just calling his name when you are in great trouble will bring safety and salvation for your soul. God listens to us when we truthfully cry out to him by faith.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. - Ephesians 2:8-9
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. - John 3:17
In conclusion, there is no one below or above the earth except Jesus that is given to human beings to carry their sin and burn on the cross. There is no one for us except Jesus to care for us and bring our case before the most fearsome God and be able to win the case.
There is no one except Jesus who can face God for the sins of human beings since the wrath of God on the sinner is great. Jesus Christ is able to intercede for us when we are short of the glory of God due to our rebellious nature.
Others may feel pity for us but nothing more. But he is able to give us grace that will help us triumph over our enemies. He set a practical example
for us to learn how we can defeat the devil by obeying God till death. He has already sent us his Spirit to live in us who always intercedes for us even when we don’t know how to pray.
