Our High Priest. September 1
And Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel in the breastplate of judgement upon his heart, when he goeth in unto the Holy place, for a memorial before the Lord continually. Exodus 28:29
Gods first high priest was Aaron, Moses brother. During all the building of the tabernacle and all the elaborate things that went with it was a breastplate. Aaron was to wear this breastplate when he came into the presence of God. Upon this breastplate was engraved the name of each tribe of Israel. Twelve in all. All this for the purpose of bringing each Israelite before God. Of course they couldn’t all fit in the tabernacle but when Aaron came in with the tribes engraved by his heart it reminded God to love them each and kept their needs before him. Well Aaron was Gods first high priest, but today Jesus is Gods last High Priest “eternal”. He is continually in the presence of God and we the church and each believer are upon his heart. Oh praise God your name today is in the presence of God thru Jesus our high priest. He cannot forget us and he will not fail us Today or any other day. Just keep your faith and your life in Christ Jesus our high priest.
