IT IS FINISHED!
Jesus came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him to them He gave the right (authority) to become children of God, to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. John 1:11-13
Jesus Christ came to earth bringing Heaven with Him to change the world, do away with the sins of mankind and begin a new paradigm for His church. No longer a place to go, but a Person to be, the body of human beings transformed into new creations had become the new temple!
For eons Israel worshiped God through a human mediator, a High Priest who would atone for their sins once a year by sprinkling the blood of an unblemished lamb on the mercy seat seven times in the holy of hollies behind the veil of separation. But now with the advent of Jesus Christ, The Lamb of God coming into the world, He is our mediator and the only Way to the Most High!
The old priesthood, the temple of stone and the Jewish laws and statutes were done away with as the angels tore the veil of separation from top to bottom as Jesus shed His blood on the cross. The body of Christ could now come into the throne room of the Most High boldly through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, our new Mediator!
Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. I Peter 2:4,5
