Hebrews 7:22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.

Updated: Sep 20, 2022



Affirmative! Look at what Jesus has done. Jesus is the High Priest forever. God had sworn by it. He made an oath that cannot be broken. Jesus is the mediator. He is the go-between God and man. His sacrifice remains intact. But let’s rewind.


It’s that time again. Every year at the Day of Atonement sacrifices had to be offered as penance for the nation of Israel’s sins. Sacrifice upon sacrifice upon sacrifice. Goats, lambs, grain, birds. Year after year after year. Doesn’t that sound exasperating? The priest had to make sure they were in right standing too or they would expire. All the i’s dotted and the t’s crossed. Whew, just thinking about that sound draining.


Now Jesus steps in and takes all that work away. We owe our life to Him. His blood is just as powerful today as the day of Calvary. He intercedes on our behalf. Isn’t that comforting?! Jesus is praying for us. Think about that and get excited!



Priestly garments surrounding

The throne room


Cleansing waters thrashing


Man of holiness

With folded hands they bow


Gratitude of penitence


Removed in its final hour

The Anointed One


Lifted beyond the veil


Redeemer has won


Ending the cycle

God and man united


In splendid power
