Hebrews 8-10

Jesus is our high priest seated at the right hand of the majesty in heaven, a minister in the tabernacle.  The blood of bulls, goats, and sheep never cleansed the conscience, but Jesus offered up Himself once for all time for the forgiveness of sins so that we can serve the living God.


Everything in the earthly tabernacle was representative of Jesus Christ in the heavenly tabernacle.  All men die because of the sin of our father Adam, but after death comes judgment.  Jesus died once, not having the sin of Adam, He died to bear our sins and He will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.  Do you get what that means?  When Jesus comes again, if you are eager for His arrival He will not even consider your sin.  He is coming to take you home.


The law can never cleanse your conscience.  We have a new living Way in Jesus Christ.  We can boldly enter into the holy place by the blood of Jesus.  hold on to this hope because it is true, and await His arrival.  While awaiting His arrival let us encourage one another; stimulating one another to love and good deeds.  That is the purpose of the assembling together, to stimulate and encourage one another.
