The High Priest

Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. —Hebrews 9:12

Once a year the High Priest sprinkled the blood of the sacrificial lamb on the mercy seat to atone for the sins of the Israelites. The High Priest set aside his robe and jeweled ephod when he went before God. He wore only a simple linen garment.

Jesus, the High Priest of the new covenant, laid aside His glory and was utterly forsaken by God (Matthew 27:46). Humbled and alone, He entered the Holy of Holies and applied His blood to the mercy seat.

The death of Jesus on the Cross was the final sacrifice for sin. He has broken forever the powerful hold of Satan over man! (Revelation 1:18). You do not have to submit to the works of your adversary. Your High Priest willingly shed His blood so you could be free (John 10:18).

Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8). Christ in you is greater than the adversary in the world (1 John 4:4). So you can live today in victory, overcoming every attack of the enemy.

Jesus, I am an overcomer in You. I declare that in
Your strength, I will overcome every temptation,
weakness, and bondage. I will walk
in Your victory. Amen.
