Within the Veil

In I John 2:1, we find that Jesus Christ is our advocate before the Father. In Hebrews 4:14a, He is the “great High Priest that is passed into the heavens” and in Hebrews 7:24b, He “hath an unchangeable priesthood,” for He “ever liveth to make intercession for them” (Hebrews 7:25b). Our High Priest, Jesus Christ, is able to take this position because He substituted His perfect life for us by His sacrificial death on the cross.

“For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens” (Hebrews 7:26). It is the Son “who is consecrated forevermore” Hebrews 7:28b). He has become the perfect sacrifice. Jesus Christ has finished the work of redemption, rending the veil of separation between God and man forever! “For by one offering he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified” (Hebrews 10:14).

It is essential for all Christians to understand that Jesus Christ, in His office as High Priest, is for us!
