Aaron and the Levitical priesthood only served a “copy and shadow of the heavenly things,” but Jesus has “a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises” (See Hebrews 8:5-6). In the Tabernacle and the Temple, the High Priest entered into the Most Holy place only once a year to atone for the people’s sins; “the Holy Spirit indicating this, that the way into the Holiest of All was not yet made manifest” (See Heb. 9:8). “But this Man (Jesus Christ), after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God;” “For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified” (See Hebrews 10:12 & 14) We can all now have “boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus” (Heb. 10:19). Thank you Lord Jesus for Your sacrifice at the cross; You alone have made the way for us to dwell with God and have eternal life.
