Week Seven Homework | Covenant 7-1 | Kay Arthur

Our Great High Priest and Mediator

Good Morning dear readers,
I am so happy to be in the word with you. I'm going to start todays homework review with a few passages that does a fabulous job to sum up what we have learned.

Hebrews 13:10-15 (The Message)
The altar from which God gives us the gift of himself is not for exploitation by insiders who grab and loot. In the old system, the animals are killed and the bodies disposed of outside the camp. The blood is then brought inside to the altar as a sacrifice for sin. It's the same with Jesus. He was crucified outside the city gates—that is where he poured out the sacrificial blood that was brought to God's altar to cleanse his people.

So let's go outside, where Jesus is, where the action is—not trying to be privileged insiders, but taking our share in the abuse of Jesus. This "insider world" is not our home. We have our eyes peeled for the City about to come. Let's take our place outside with Jesus, no longer pouring out the sacrificial blood of animals but pouring out sacrificial praises from our lips to God in Jesus' name.

If you remember back when we looked at Gen 49 and talked about how the Messiah will come from the tribe of Judah?

In Hebrews 1 we read For to which of the angels did God ever say, "You are my Son; today I have become your Father"?
Or again, "I will be his Father, and he will be my Son"? And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, "Let all God's angels worship him." In speaking of the angels he says, "He makes his angels winds, his servants flames of fire."
 But about the Son he says, "Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever, and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom.

There you have it, the scepter as mentioned in Gen. And the name of the High Priest....

Heb 7:23-24
tells us that very name is the Lord Jesus Christ.....Now there have been many of those priests, since death prevented them from continuing in office; but because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood.

Give Him the praise and thanks for through Him we are made new, the old is no more.
Amen, ~Melanie

Hebrews 10:36
You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

Hebrews 13:15-16
Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that confess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
