” Our Advocate “

b8y6r4ef2a0x

What great a feat Christ took on not just for a few but the forgiveness of sin for the whole world. He is our advocate with God the Father. (1 John 2:1-3). My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

 

 

By Christ’s sacrifice of Himself for us He paid the price so we can go boldly to the throne of Grace. Our Lord now sits at the right hand of God on our behalf! (Hebrews 4:14-16). Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

 

 

Through true faith we know Christ is our intercessor, and the love we have for Him we know there is nothing that can ever separate us from Him! As we are conquerors through the love He has for us. (Romans 8:34-39).  Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
