Good Morning Marine!
Word for the Day:
(Exod.29:38 - 30:10)
"Our Mediator and Intercessor"
"This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the door of the tabernacle of meeting before the LORD, where I will meet you to speak with you."
The picture of a Mediator, or 'Go Between,' is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. A mediator is One Who stands between two people in conflict with each other, and brings them together in agreement.
What a great picture this is of Our Commander Jesus! He Stands between Almighty God and mankind as Son of Man - the Mediator, and 'Go Between.'
The offering each morning and evening was symbolic of Our Commander's offering of Himself ONCE FOR ALL (Heb.10:10,14).
We have eternal life today because He paid our sin debt with His life! We need to rehearse and remember this Truth 'continually' by daily meeting with Him for Breakfast Lunch and Dinner, and regularly celebrating Holy Communion together.
This is Who Our Commander and King IS, Our Mediator.
Now, we can understand more clearly What He DOES. He IS Our Intercessor, continually!
He is Praying for us 'continually' as our High Priest (Heb.7:25). The altar of incense is a picture of this, (Exod.30:8), and the incense is the prayers He prays for us (Rev.5:8; 8:4).
Our Mediator, is Who He Is - and Our Intercessor, is What He Does. I pray that Holy Spirit will keep this Truth blazing in our hearts forever! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
