The Hands That Connect Us...
But Christ came [as] High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation.
The concept of a priest deals with intercession. A priest is supposed to be one that stands between people and God as a representative. God appointed the priests in Israel to offer sacrifices continually, to cover the sins of His people, thereby enabling them to have a relationship with Him. Jesus, the Prince of Peace, satisfied this role fully, so that we no longer need anyone to stand between us and the Father. Jesus offered Himself as a sacrifice, once and for all. By His blood, He judged sin, closing the gap that separated us from Him; enabling us to dwell in His presence. His impeccable sacrifice as God in flesh, enables access to His goodness.
