Daily Fountain 2017 - The Superior Priesthood Of Jesus Christ

Tuesday January 17th

Bible Reading:     Heb. 8: 1 - 6

Topic:         The Superior Priesthood of Jesus Christ

Today, the writer continues to prove the Superiority of Jesus' Priesthood over that of Aaron.

Yesterday, he declared Jesus Christ "a Priest forever in the order of Melchizedek"

His Sanctuary is the Throne of Grace. There is something special about this Sanctuary. It is a place of true and spiritual worship, a ground of solution in times of troubles and a prototype of God's Sanctuary in Heaven (Ex. 25: 9, 40) but Jesus lives and intercedes for His people in the Real Sanctuary, of which Aaron's is only a type.

Jesus has a more excellent Ministry based on a better Covenant which establishes better promises.

The Ministry is the one that brings life out of death, hope out of hopelessness and makes impossibilities possible.

His is a Covenant of mercy and grace which reveals God's Heart for lost humanity. It provides the hope of resurrection, rapture of and reward for the saints.

You can be part of these promises of you have accepted this Superior High Priest and Saviour into your life.

If you have not, please stop all you are doing right now and take that important step so that you can partake of these promises both here and for all eternity.

My Father and my God, may I be a partaker of these better promises now and forever more

Memory verse:   Heb. 8: 6
"But now hath He obtained a more excellent Ministry, by how much also He is the Mediator of a better Covenant, which was established upon better promises."
