Our defense attorney in heaven


Because Jesus obeyed God and willingly gave up his life, enduring the Cross and despising its shame, God raised him up to have the name above all names (Philippians 2:9) and to sit at his right hand (Hebrews 12:2) as our defense attorney (representative/advocate) (1 John 2:1), for Christ entered into heaven for us (Hebrews 9:24). Jesus Christ on the Cross is our Substitute and in God’s presence, he is our Spokesperson; speaking in our defense.

Points to ponder:
Jesus Christ in God’s presence can be our defense attorney, only if we let him to be in us, by trusting in him to represent us before God (Ephesians 3:16). I have, Have you?

Hebrews 9:24 (KJV)
24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

1 John 2:1-2 (KJV)
My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
