What are some of these “when Christ came as high priest of the good things that are now already here”? (Heb 9:11). Well “we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God” who can “empathize with our weaknesses . . . so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (Heb 4:14-16 NIV). Now “we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus. By his death, Jesus opened a new and living way through the curtain into the Most Holy Place. And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God’s house, let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him”(Heb 10:19-22 NLT). Wow, think about that, right into the presence of God himself, the most important and powerful person in the universe, via prayer! “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand” (Rom 5:1,2 NIV). We have guaranteed “access by faith” to Almighty God himself “through our Lord Jesus Christ”!
