The Throne of God’s Grace

We should always keep our eyes in continual fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ our compassionate great High Priest. The Scripture says, “Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. The Scripture goes on the say that we have a High Priest who can sympathize with our weaknesses, but without sin. And He is a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek” (Hebrews 4:14-16 & 5:5-6).

When the Lord Jesus died on the cross Mark 15: 37-38 says, “And Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and breathed His last. Then the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.” Thus, due to this veil in the temple been torn we now have Direct Access to God’s Throne of Grace.

Furthermore, the Scripture says, “The veil of the temple was torn from top to bottom” (Mark 15:38). This happened when the Lord Jesus died on the cross of Calvary, at that very moment God’s heavenly door to the Throne of God’s Grace was open for humanity to enter. Hebrews 4:16 days, “Let us there come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

What does the Bible say about who God is?

The Bible says that the one true God is the sovereign, self-existent Creator of the universe (Isaiah 42:5: Ephesians 1:11). He is spirit (John 4:24), He is eternal (Psalm 90:12), and He is personal (Deuteronomy 34:10). The one true God possesses all knowledge. (Isaiah 46:10) and all power (Matthew 19:26)

I John 4:8 says, “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 1:1, 14 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”

The New Testament teaches that Jesus claimed to be God. The Bible also affirms the deity of Christ. First, Jesus claimed to be equal with God. He could forgive sin, something only God could do (Mark 2:5).

Jesus claimed many divine titles such as Son of God (Matthew 16:15-17) and (Luke 22:70).
