Jesus has entered as a FORERUNNER for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”
A forerunner is someone one who goes ahead of others to a place where people will follow. Jesus went to heaven ahead of us and is being our high priest. He prays for us. He forgives our sins. How do we know He’s there? He told His disciples He was returning to heaven. Witnesses saw Jesus ascend through the clouds into heaven. Angels confirmed to the disciples what they had seen. Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit after He arrived in heaven. And, He did. All is well, friends. Christ, our forerunner, is in heaven. He made it safely there. We will, too.
Lord Jesus, FORERUNNER of all who put their trust in You, thank You for the promise of safely seeing us through the travail of death and bringing us to heaven’s glory.
