Come Boldly To Receive Your Healing
Hebrews 4:14-16 (NKJV) 14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us, therefore, come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
All boldface in scripture is my emphasis only.
I’m not for sin, but I’m not conscious of it. Our confession is Jesus our Lord. Confess Jesus as Lord. You see, you were forgiven at the cross for everything. If you don’t believe that, then you walk around thinking of sin all the time. God doesn’t want you thinking of sin because it was paid for, once for all, by the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
Hebrews 8:12 (NASB) “FOR I WILL BE MERCIFUL TO THEIR INIQUITIES, AND I WILL REMEMBER THEIR SINS NO MORE.”
Unfortunately, you won’t see many religious folks mention this verse, or even try to explain this verse which is taken from an Old Testament prophecy. There is rarely a commentary that addresses it. If God isn’t going to remember your sin, why do you want to?
Allow Yourself To Be Loved By Him.
You come before God who loves you so much. He sent His Son to die for you. He died for all of your sins. Stop thinking about them. Start thinking of Jesus. He loves you BIG. He wants a real loving relationship where you allow yourself to be loved by Him.
See Jesus, Not You.
Look, I’m not perfect. I don’t care that I’m not perfect. Instead, I focus on His perfection, His Son, Jesus Christ. He is perfect. And His, once for all time, atonement was perfect for me. You see, even the shadow in the Old Testament had limits. They remembered their sins at least once a year. That was a shadow of the real thing. The real thing is not even having a consciousness of sin.
Hebrews 10:1-3 (NASB) 1 For the Law since it has only a shadow of the good things to come and not the very form of things, can never, by the same sacrifices which they offer continually year by year, make perfect those who draw near. 2 Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, because the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have had consciousness of sins? 3 But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins year by year.
The law and those living by the letter of the law of the Old Testament (that includes what was written on tablets of stone) CAN NEVER make perfect those who draw near. NEVER is a pretty strong word.
When you come before someone who is more powerful than you are, you must come before him or her as someone who is worthy to be in their presence. Well, you were only made worthy by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. He paid for ALL of your sins (yesterday’s, today’s and tomorrow’s). Come before God clothed with His robe of righteousness, the free gift you received when you called on Him. When you approach God this way, you will always have hope, you will always take the next step forward, and you will always receive grace to help in time of your need.
He Is The Mediator Of A New Covenant.
Hebrews 9:12, 15 (ESV) 12 he entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption… 15 Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.
Don’t ever be afraid to come before God to receive your healing, to receive blessings from Him, to be in His presence and to enjoy His presence. He paid for your right to go before His throne of grace in your time of need.
