But the Messiah has appeared, High Priest of the good things that have come. In the greater and more perfect Tabernacle not made with hands (that is, not of this creation), He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, not by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood having obtained eternal redemption. Hebrews 9:11-12
Jesus Christ, the Messiah, He is the High Priest of the GOOD THINGS, meaning the ABUNDANT LIFE that He gives to those who will RECEIVE Him, as their SAVIOR and LORD. The GREATER and MORE PERFECT Tabernacle, which is NOT made with human hands, nor with earthly building supplies, is the Sanctuary of the Almighty God, and is located in Heaven.
Verse twelve tells us that Jesus Christ, the Messiah, entered the Most Holy Place ONCE FOR ALL. This took place at the time of His Ascension. He went into the Presence of God, having FINISHED the WORK of REDEMPTION, on the Cross of CALVARY. He did NOT offer the blood of the goats and calves, but He offered His OWN BLOOD. The blood of animals did NOT have the POWER to TAKE AWAY SINS, but the BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST, has SUFFICIENT POWER to CLEANSE ALL the sins of ALL the people who have EVER LIVED, ALL who are ALIVE NOW, and ALL who will EVER LIVE. However, it can ONLY BE APPLIED to those who COME TO Him by FAITH.
The SUFFERING, HORRIBLE DEATH on a CRUEL WOODEN CROSS, of a SINLESS, PURE, UMBLEMISHED SACRIFICE, the LIFE of OUR SAVIOR and LORD, PAID IN FULL the DEBT we could NOT PAY. His RESURRECTION from the GRAVE, and His ASCENSION into Heaven, is our HOPE for ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN with Him and our HOLY FATHER GOD. This SHOULD make an OLD DRIED-UP BAPTIST SHOUT; “PRAISE THE LORD!!!” Have you come to Jesus, by FAITH, to receive your REDEMPTION?
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are DESTINED to spend ALL of ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE. Jesus Christ has FINISHED the WORK of REDEMPTION, and it is NOW up to YOU to RECEIVE or REJECT it. To RECEIVE it, you MUST BE WILLING TO TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. BELIEVING with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and REDEMPTION by FAITH in the RISEN LORD. DO this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
