JESUS OUR SAVIOUR AND HIGH PRIEST
In the midst of every pressure God reveals his will, and out of every pressure around growth must come forth.
We need to differentiate the office of Jesus before he went to the cross and after he went to the cross and ascended into heaven.
Before he went to the cross, he came as a saviour of mankind from the laws and traditions, from religious practices. And after he died, crucified, buried and resurrected ascended into heaven and sitting at the right hand of the father, he became our high priest who make intercession before God.
By his blood that was shed, he completed his transaction as our saviour.
After the resurrection of Jesus Christ resurrection, devil has no power; he operates by manipulation and deception, and as accusers of brethren.
Note this, If the devil has a reason why you should not prosper and be in good health, he should take it to the cross of Calvary because all those reasons have been paid for.
I will take you through a long reading from the book of Revelations chapter 5 vs. 1-14 (KJV) this scripture will help you understand the role of Jesus as our saviour and high priest.
Revelations chapter 5 vs. 1-14 (KJV):
1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, who is worthy to open the book, and to lose the seals thereof?
3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.
9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
12 Saying with a loud voice, worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb forever and ever.
14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth forever and ever.
The coming of Jesus brought redemption to mankind; it’s our responsibility to appropriate the power God has given to us and to stay relevant to him, not allowing ourselves to be deceived by men whose stomach has become their gods.
After resurrection, all power was given to Jesus and none was give to the devil, make no mistake about this truth, knowing this have solve any of mans problem to a greater percentage.
You now have to come to God boldly to obtain grace and help in times of your need, and believe me he will not fail you. For I have not seen the righteous forsaken nor his seeds beg bread.
When revelation comes to a man, a door is opened unto him in the spirit.
Whatever evidence the devil is bringing against you is null and void.
When ascending into heaven, the accusers of brethren challenged him and his answer came from the book of:
psalms chapter 24 vs. 1-7 (KJV) which says:
7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
Till we all win.
