 •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 7
V. 1-4 Many sacrifices were offered in the tabernacle and in the temple, that did not really take away sins they were just pictures of the one true and perfect Sacrifice on the cross.
V. 5-9 The Lord Jesus took a body and offered Himself as the one perfect sacrifice.
V. 10 "Sanctified" means set apart from others for God, as holy. This was the will of God, and that "will" was accomplished through the work of Christ on the cross. Now we are sanctified. The Israelites were to be a separate people. (1 Kings 8:5353For thou didst separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be thine inheritance, as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord God. (1 Kings 8:53)), but they failed, for their salvation depended on them. We are sanctified by the work of Another.
V. 12 Many, many animals had been offered and yet the work was never done. But after the Lord Jesus offered Himself as that one sacrifice He sat down in heaven... the work was done forever.
V. 14 Right now as God looks at each believer, He sees each made perfect forever through the one sacrifice of His beloved Son. Do you realize that?
V. 19-22 Now we are fitted and invited to enter into the holiest into the very presence of God.
Verses 8 to 22 give us examples of "patience of faith" of those who simply waited on God and trusted Him.
