ENTER THE HOLIEST

Heb.10:19 – Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus,

This is the ultimate treasure available to all of us, we have been called to enter into the holiest of all. To the Old Testament Hebrew this is unthinkable. The holiest was the inner sanctum of the temple only accessible once a year by the High Priest. He would come in on the Day of Atonement and offer blood for the covering of their sins. The book of Hebrews tells us that Jesus did this one time so that anyone who believes in Him could enter into the holiest, into Christ Himself, and make this his new home. We don’t need a priest to go in for us, we can go in ourselves and live in this new way of life. Unthinkable!!!. Here is how Andrew Murray described it.

“The blood of the Lamb! Oh think what it means. God gave it for your redemption. God accepted it when His Son entered heaven and presented it on your behalf. God has it for ever in His sight as the fruit, the infinitely well-pleasing proof, of His Son’s obedience unto death. God points you to it and asks you to believe in the divine satisfaction it gives to Him, in its omnipotent energy, in its everlasting sufficiency. Oh, will you not this day believe that that blood gives you, sinful and feeble as you are, liberty, confidence, boldness to draw nigh, to enter the very Holiest? Yes, believe it, that the blood and the blood alone, brings you into the very presence, into the living and abiding fellowship of the everlasting God. And let your response to God’s message concerning the blood, and the boldness it gives you be nothing less than this, that this very moment you go with the utmost confidence, and take your place in the most intimate fellowship with God.”

This is why Jesus became a man, He offered His blood and entered into heaven itself on our behalf. Now man can not only approach the throne of God to receive answers to prayer, we can come into His presence and live in this new and living way. Christ opened up heaven for us, this is way more than just everlasting life, it is life in the immediate presence of Almighty God. This is a brand new way to live our lives.

  1. What a privilege, not based on our previous status, or accomplishments. no one camped out and got in line early. God actually came after us when our hearts and actions were far from Him. How could you not be forever thankful.

  2. The subtle mixture of unspeakable joy and holy fear…. the elixir of forever life and abundance of life on planet earth….Thank You Dr Jesus for the Rx that fixed everything.
