Christ: The Heavenly Priest

“Now the main point of what we are saying is this: We do have such a high priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, and who serves in the sanctuary, the true tabernacle set up by the Lord, not by a mere human being.” (Hebrews 8:1-2)

Christ is The Highest Priest and The Eternal Priest, and He sits with the Heavenly Father. When Christ uttered on the cross the words, “It is finished!” He completed the acts of reconciliation, redemption, and propitiation on our behalf. Christ then returned to Heaven, and the majesty now enjoyed by Christ will someday be ours to share as we are clothed with garments built only for praise and worship of the one who delivered us from a certain death.

The true sanctuary and tabernacle are in Heaven (Psalms 11:4). We will be able to enter into this glorious place because of Christ’s work on our behalf! We will enter into His rest with Body and Soul on Christ’s Second Coming when He will take all saints to Heaven.
