High Priest exhonerates filthy Sinner

Heb 4:14 Since then we have a great High Priest who has passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
Heb 4:15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot be touched with the feelings of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted just as we are, yet without sin.
Heb 4:16 Therefore let us come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

1st: Vs. 14 Let us hold fast the enlightening doctrines of Christianity in our hearts, the enlivening principles of it in our Spirits, the open profession of it in our lips, and our practical and universal subjection to it in our lives. Observe here, We ought to be possessed of the doctrines, principles, and practice, of the Christian life.

So why come boldy with confidence into the very Throne room of God who is Judge, the Great I Am? Because Romans 8 says that there is no therefore no condemnation for those IN Christ Jesus. Many of us do not enter in because we have fallen for the classical deception of satan. it started in the garden of eden, the serpent tempted and succeeded to pervert man's relationship with God. God had to cast judgement on man, so man hid, and God says 'who told you you were naked?' meaning I know you are and you know you are but I am not condemning you for your nakedness. We do this today. we clothe ourselves with material possessions, social status, our just plain pride. we do these things because the devil has to these individuals convinced them that God is angry with the sinner all the day long, hey that IS what the Bible says, however what these poor souls failed to understand is that as a christian God does not see you as a sinner but a saint. in fact He sees His Son Jesus. If you begin to grasp this you will no longer run from God when you are falling but you will look up to your Good heavenly Father whoh will pull you up out of the water, out of the miry clay, out of the Lions den, out of the fiery furnance and so on and so on.

The Truth is Because Jesus went to bat for us we have unlimited access, unlimited number of strikes He just wants us to keep playing, and that for HIM.

well sorry this is a bit longer, I'm closing shorter because it will otherwise become a full on sermon.

He Loves His children, are you ready?
