Verses:

Heb. 7:25 “Hence also He is able to save to the uttermost those who come forward to God through Him, since He lives always to intercede for them.”

 

Excerpts:

Only two verses in the Bible, Hebrews 7:25 and Romans 8:34, tell us that Christ is interceding for us. According to Romans 8, Christ is interceding for us to be glorified. In Hebrews 7:25, Christ intercedes for us that we may be saved to the uttermost. Being saved to the uttermost is the equivalent of glorification. The interceding Christ is the kingly and divine High Priest, the heavenly Minister, our Melchisedec.

 

The ministry of Melchisedec is not to save sinners. A sinner needs Christ’s ministry as typified by Aaron. But we are no longer pitiful sinners; we are fighters, fighting against the by-products of death. Chedorlaomer, who was slaughtered by Abraham, does not represent sin but represents the by-products of death. Lot had been captured [by] the by-products of death. Do not rebuke or condemn the brothers who have been captured but slaughter Chedorlaomer, the by-products of death that have captured the brothers and sisters and hold them in bondage. If you do this, our Melchisedec will come in, and you will enjoy His ministry.

 

We must slaughter all of the by-products of death mentioned in Romans 8; we must slaughter groaning, vanity, bondage, slavery, corruption, and decay. Christ’s more excellent ministry today is to intercede for the fighters. The interceding Christ in the heavens is transmitting the heavenly power into us. (Life-study of Hebrews, Chap. 35)
