Old Covenant Verses New Covenant 2

15 Jul

Hello again!  I hope you have been studying the book of Hebrews this week, so you can join me today as we look at Hebrews chapter two.   In Hebrews 2:9,  it says “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.”  (Taken from the KJV).  Wow! Here we see Jesus is made LOWER than the ANGELS, for the reason to suffer death, taste death, for EVERY MAN (mankind).  He died on the cross for WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH!  He died for my sins and yours! Cool huh!                                                                             In verse 11, it says He calls us Brethren   In verse 14…..that through death (dying on the cross) he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil. Verse 15….And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.  You know we don’t have to fear death, we can know we will go to Heaven and see Jesus our Savior. Yes, you can know for sure, by accepting Him as your Lord and Savior. Ask Him to come into your life.  Please read my blog “Did You Know”.                                                                    When Jesus died on the cross, he did not take on the nature of angels.  He took on Him the seed of Abraham.  He was like us, so He might be a merciful and faithful HIGH PRIEST in things that had to do with GOD. To…also make reconciliation for the sins of the people       You see, in the Old Testament (old covenant), before Jesus came to earth and died on the cross, the High Priest had to go ONCE  A YEAR , on THE DAY OF ATONEMENT and sacrifice certain animals for the sins of the people, and for himself.    But, when Jesus came, He was sacrificed ONCE on the cross (as a lamb-spotless), for our sins. So, HE became OUR “HIGH PRIEST”.  He makes intercession for us in Heaven to the FATHER.  Jesus sits at the RIGHT HAND of GOD.   So…….their is no more need for a High Priest to sacrifice animals once a year, on the Day of Atonement.  We can be atoned for our sins through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice (one time). God has always needed a blood sacrifice (read Hebrews 9:22 about that). The blood of Jesus has covered our sins. He died in our place on the cross. Then He rose from the dead on the third day!! Yaaaaaah!!   Thank you, Jesus!   But, remember this is a GIFT from GOD.  He made a way for our SALVATION. But….with any gift, you have to receive it!                                                                                                                                                                    Ask Jesus now, to forgive you of your sins, and that you accept His sacrifice on the cross. Also, that you believe in your heart, He died and rose again. Confess with your mouth, He is Lord!    Ask Him to come into your life.  Don’t worry, you can come as you are, you don’t have to wait till you are perfect and clean.  He will wash you with His blood and cleanse you from all unrighteousness!  Please join me for chapter 3 of Hebrews next time! God bless!      Ann
