GOD’S WORD FOR MAY 6 ~ ~ Hebrews 4:16~ ~ “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

The moment that you receive salvation, you are given access to God. This means that you can come to Him in prayer and know that since you have access to Him, He will hear you and will answer your prayers. While God will answer your prayers, it is important to remember that He answers them according to His perfect, heavenly wisdom and not according to your imperfect, earthly wisdom.

When you receive salvation, Jesus becomes your great High Priest. In Hebrews 4:14, the author says, “Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.”

He is both the sacrificial lamb, of the sacrifices for sin, and the High Priest who offers up that sacrifice for the people. He is, additionally, the Judge who will decide to accept the sacrifice or not. He is the “all in all” because He alone accomplished the salvation through His humanity!!!! And He did it out of love for YOU.

Ephesians 1:22-23~ ~ “And He (The Father) put all things under His (Jesus’) feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church,  which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.”

In the Old Testament, the children of Israel could not go directly to God. They needed a priest to go between them and God. This was the old covenant. However, when Jesus came into the world, He came to make a new covenant. When He defeated the grave, He fulfilled the old covenant and brought the new covenant. This is what gave us direct access to God since we have Jesus as our great high priest.

He is not only the sacrifice, the Judge, and the Great High Priest, He is also the King of Kings. In Old Testament times, no one entered the Throne Room without permission. If they did come in, they could be put to death, unless the King holds out his scepter. Then they could touch the end of the scepter, and proceed with their request. The Word shows us how that is different now, with Jesus as King:

Hebrews 1:8

“But to the Son He says: “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.”

The scepter is a sign of undisputed power, and many times ruthless power, that has been simply handed down from the previous generation. But God tells us that the scepter that Jesus has as King of Kings, has been earned by Him by the sacrifice He suffered for us. It also shows that the prerequisite for coming to the Throne Room of Heaven is having the righteousness through Christ. Anyone who has Christ in salvation, has Him as King of Kings and Lord of the Universe, and the scepter is held out for him. That’s why we can come boldly to the Throne of Grace, as the verse of the day tells us.

Not only sacrifice, Judge, High Priest, King, He is also our Intercessor, or mediator, to the Father for our sins.

1 Timothy 2:5

“For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,”

Jesus is always praying for us. He never stops. Since He can do all things at once (He’s not limited like we are) He can be doing that, running the entire universe, earthly creation, and the nations and rulers, and much more, and still care about our little problems. There is nothing too big or too small for Him.

As Corrie TenBoom said, ““No pit is so deep that He is not deeper still; with Jesus even in our darkest moments, the best remains and the very best is yet to be.”

So He says,

Matthew 11:28

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 19:14

“But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”

John 6:37

“All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.”

Come to Him. He’s waiting.
