Reference: Intercession Of Christ
Christ's priestly office consists of these two parts, (1) the offering up of himself as a sacrifice, and (2) making continual intercession for us.
When on earth he made intercession for his people (Lu 23:34; Joh 17:20; Heb 5:7); but now he exercises this function of his priesthood in heaven, where he is said to appear in the presence of God for us (Heb 9:12,24).
His advocacy with the Father for his people rests on the basis of his own all-perfect sacrifice. Thus he pleads for and obtains the fulfilment of all the promises of the everlasting covenant (1Jo 2:1; Joh 17:24; Heb 7:25). He can be "touched with the feeling of our infirmities," and is both a merciful and a faithful high priest (Heb 2:17-18; 4:15-16). This intercession is an essential part of his mediatorial work. Through him we have "access" to the Father (Joh 14:6; Eph 2:18; 3:12). "The communion of his people with the Father will ever be sustained through him as mediatorial Priest" (Ps 110:4; Re 7:17).
Yahweh has sworn, and will not change his mind: "You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek."
Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they don't know what they are doing." Dividing his garments among them, they cast lots.
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.
Not for these only do I pray, but for those also who believe in me through their word,
Father, I desire that they also whom you have given me be with me where I am, that they may see my glory, which you have given me, for you loved me before the foundation of the world.
For through him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.
in whom we have boldness and access in confidence through our faith in him.
Therefore he was obligated in all things to be made like his brothers, that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make atonement for the sins of the people. For in that he himself has suffered being tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted.
For we don't have a high priest who can't be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but one who has been in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore draw near with boldness to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, and may find grace for help in time of need.
He, in the days of his flesh, having offered up prayers and petitions with strong crying and tears to him who was able to save him from death, and having been heard for his godly fear,
Therefore he is also able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, seeing that he lives forever to make intercession for them.
nor yet through the blood of goats and calves, but through his own blood, entered in once for all into the Holy Place, having obtained eternal redemption.
For Christ hasn't entered into holy places made with hands, which are representations of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us;
My little children, I write these things to you so that you may not sin. If anyone sins, we have a Counselor with the Father, Jesus Christ, the righteous.
for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne shepherds them, and leads them to springs of waters of life. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."
