Incomparable Christ

Hebrews 8: 1-6

Jesus Christ is the Incomparable High Priest

Jesus Christ sits in the HONORED Seat

  • When Jesus Christ offered His SACRIFICE He sat down
  • As far as salvation is concerned Jesus has ACCOMPLISHED all that needs to be done
  • Jesus has been EXALTED into heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father enjoying a place of honor and GLORY
  • Jesus is seated as our REDEEMER; He is standing as our HELPER

Jesus Christ SERVES in the Holy Sanctuary

  • The earthly tabernacle/temple and the rituals and customs associated with them were a SHADOW of the real thing
  • The most important function of both the tabernacle and temple was that these physical structures would be the DWELLING place of the Spirit of God
  • In His human body Jesus offered Himself as the PERFECT, unblemished SACRIFICE for sin
  • Jesus entered the heavenly tabernacle with His own shed blood accomplishing our REDEMPTION and reconciliation
  • The work of CHRIST allows us to directly and confidently enjoy God’s PRESENCE
