Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man. Hebrews 8:1-2
Again we continue to see the theme in the book of Hebrews of Jesus role as the High Priest and his supremacy over the old priesthood , the old covenant. Not only do we have a High Priest, but our High Priest sits at the right hand of God in Heaven. Our High Priest is not only the minister of the tabernacle, He is the tabernacle and made his dwelling among us
When we understand how Christ has fulfilled all things, we understand He is all we need. Its a blessing to know that God is our High Priest and our Sanctuary in which we dwell
For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law: Hebrews 8:3-4
Its amazing when you understand, that Christ not only made offering on our behalf, but he offered himself to take our place! The Son of God loved you enough to die for your sins, the personal relationship with God cant be found any other place than in Christ for this reason
Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount. Hebrews 8:5
Everything about the Old Covenant was a foreshadow of the New Covenant, Moses was directed to make thing exactly as God commanded, why? Because all these things were shadows of Christ. When you studying these things in depth, your understand who Jesus truly is, the eternal High Priest who paid the atonement for your sins Amen!
