"Jesus Christ, Son of God and Son of Man, are still our High Priest, in the Temple of God in Heaven !"

 

In the synagogue of Nazareth, Jesus proclaimed 'the acceptable year from God' after leaving the desert and temptation from the devil. - Luke 4:17-21.v. and by He's Victory on the cross on Golgatha, Jesus established 'the acceptable year of God's' - Isaiah 61: 2a - as a fact !
 
I believe in, it is first of all for us gentile, and that time we all live in rigth now, if He havent done it, then all who not have believed in Him and His sacrifice, would have died on the very same day as He did, but without any kind of redemption, salvation or resurrection to
eternal life.
 
On the first day when Jesus was resurrected, He also was born again as a 'New Creation of God's - the New Adam' - Jesus Christ is now, both 'Son of God, and Son of Man' - and what that means, we all can read in the book of Daniel 7:9-14.v. + in John 1:12-13.v. and
in Romans chpt. 6 and 8: 28-29.v.

When the Lord gave Moses instruction to build the Arch of the Covenant, He also instructed him about the "Mercy Seat" of pure Gold, who should lay upon the Ark of the Covenant. - read in Exedus 25. - and be a place where God would meet Moses and Aaron, and give them instructions for the people.
It would be a place where the Almeigthy God, would have a direct contact, listen to there pray, take the offer for sin, and show His Mercy to the people.
 
Early on the first day, after Jesus were death on the Cross, and given place in the tomb. Maria Magdalena and the other women, went out to the tomb, where they have laid the body of Jesus, after He was death. But they found the tomb open and empty, and they run home to the disciples, and told that someone most have stolen the body of Jesus.
 
Peter and John ran out to the tomb to look, but when they saw the linen lie empty there, and the Napkin who have been placed over the face of Jesus, was folded and placed for it self, they understood, and they ran back to tell their brethren about it.
 
but Maria Magdalena who have followed them back to the tomb, she was still crying, and in shock. Try to understand how much Maria loved Jesus, she was so deeply shoked and depressed, because Jesus have been the real and only life for her !
 
Did we love Jesus on the same way, - is He alone, the only Life for us ???
 
Jesus He knew it, - so He gave Maria that great and wonderful revelation. We have heard about since, and now unfolding itself more and more.
 
When Maria looked into the empty tomb, - she saw the place where Jesus body have laid, - but she also saw two angels, - one in the Head end, and one in the Foot end - and the linen placed, where Jesus have laid, it was placed
 
BETWEEN THEM !
 
Maria symbolic saw that the - MERCY SEAT - NOW HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO A LIVING PERSON, - JESUS CHRIST, who as our High Priest, now are in Heaven, where also the Ark of the Covenant are. according to - Rev. 11:19.v. - Also remember what Jesus symbolic told the woman by the Sykar well with Samarai. - One day it will not only be on this mountain here, or in the temple of Jerusalem, you can pray to, and worship God, but in your own heart ! !
 
When Maria would go home, - she saw the Lord Himself, - as He have said, when He called Lazarus from the death - haven't I said, that if you believe, you shall see the Glory of God's. - John 11:40.v. and He send her home with a loving message to the disciples.
 
The Mercy Seat and the Ark are now in Gods Temple in Heaven, where our Lord also are, as our Great High Prist on the 'Melkizedek way' - for ever. - Hebrew chpt. 4-5 !
 
And the folded Napkin tell us He Will Come Back, - its a jewish tradition.

Love, Praise and Glory for ever and ever, to our wonderful Creator, Saviour and Redemeer, Jesus Christ, our Lord and King for ever.
 
Have a blessed Easter, Maranatha, - Come Lord Jesus, come and take us Home to You. - jan mikael ><> *
 
PS: under here you can read the instructions to Moses,

    about the Arch and the Mercy Seat from  
      

        Exodus 25: 17-22.v.

        25:17 You shall make a mercy seat of pure gold. Two and a half cubits shall be its length, and a cubit and a half its breadth.

        25:18 You shall make two cherubim of hammered gold. You shall make them at the two ends of the mercy seat.

        25:19 Make one cherub at the one end, and one cherub at the other end. You shall make the cherubim on its two ends of one piece with the mercy seat.

        25:20 The cherubim shall spread out their wings upward, covering the mercy seat with their wings, with their faces toward one another. The faces of the cherubim shall be toward the mercy seat.

        25:21 You shall put the mercy seat on top of the ark, and in the ark you shall put the testimony that I will give you.
          
         25:22 There I will meet with you, and I will tell you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are on the ark of the testimony, all that I command you for the children of Israel.
