The Mediator, Pt. 3

Although Moses had good intentions, what he did not understand was that there was no human blood great enough to atone for the sin of another…but God did. Moses, as far as it has been recorded, was not privy to this information, yet he had an audience of One with the Creator of all things throughout the majority of his adulthood. The extent and gravity of the human condition was so severe and beyond the scope of human comprehension that there was no possible way for any of us to grasp it without access to Divine assistance…and even then, the amount of disclosure has been limited.

 What was needed to reverse the human condition was completely embodied in the Person and work of Jesus the Christ of God. None of what He has accomplished within His life on earth has been concluded as it is has been also mentioned in Hebrews 7:22-28:

“By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament. And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death: But this man, because He continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them. For such a High Priest became us, Who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for His own sins, and then for the people’s: for this He did once, when He offered up Himself. For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, Who is consecrated forevermore.”

In other words, it becomes no longer necessary to focus upon and implement the type as a result of the presence of the Anti-type being manifested in the Person and work of Jesus the Christ of God. This does not negate the work of Moses, neither the high priests who were consecrated to perform in the Levitical office. It confirms, however, the fact that humanity needed Something greater…Someone greater…than what could be provided by their own efforts of assuaging the deserved wrath of God.

In conclusion, Paul expresses it best when he says,

“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time…” (1Tim. 2:3-5)#‎thinkonthesethings‬
