In my last post, I introduced ‘The P.O.J Series’ with the first piece titled ‘When Mercy Found Me’and I promised to tell what this series stands for. It stands for the PERSON OF JESUS (POJ) and through this writing challenge, we would be learning about the different attributes of Jesus that make Him the person that He is. The purpose of this series is to reflect in my writing this person of Jesus as I learn of Him with hopes that we’re all edified and enlightened. You are welcome on this journey/writing challenge with me. Stick around and keep an open mind 🙂
In continuation of The P.O.J Series, I was going to write on the person of Jesus as grace. However, this particular piece was strongly impressed on my heart instead. For what reason? Well, I needed to be reminded of Jesus as my intercessor and I hope that you are too. To that person that specifically needed this reminder, I pray this stirs up your heart and pushes you to adequately respond to the truth and reality of Jesus as your intercessor. Be encouraged and remain in awe of Him 🙂
I died as the man named Jesus interceding for you.
Now I live as the glorified King named Jesus seated at the right hand of the Father still interceding for you.
Does that truth not comfort you?
That I conquered death not to take a break in Heaven but to show you the love I have for you.
Does that truth not dumbfound you?
Oh well here comes your accuser,
Ready to do his job just like with Job.
Pointing out your flaws and failings, he makes a convincing case.
Right before his closing statement, I intervene with shouts of mercy,
Advancing your defense by reminding the court of my finished work on the cross
As my blood crosses out your wrongs which makes the devil cross.
So, you offer a Merci, seating once again with boldness as I assume my mercy seat.
I plead on your behalf even when you are quiet.
Does this not bring you to your knees?
Advocating in your favor as your Saviour.
So when you come before the Father, He sees you but He hears me.
Oh, the privilege you enjoy having the Son whom the Father loves dearly pray for you.
Oh, the privilege of having the name through which whatever you ask cannot be denied you.
Oh, the privilege of having a High Priest who sympathizes with your weakness fend for you.
I am Jesus, your perfect Intercessor!
For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men.
I am, the person of Jesus Christ,
Not your priests, angels, pope or any woman named Mary.
There is no other intermediary capable of mediating the better covenant,
Than the holy, undefiled, perfected and everlasting One who made a way for you to be redeemed unto the Father.
I am Jesus.
Intercessor Advocate Mediator.
Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
1 TIMOTHY 2:5
For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God. who also makes intercession for us.
