Hebrews 7:24-28

24But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. 25Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

26For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; 27Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself. 28For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

24 pero El conserva su sacerdocio inmutable puesto que permanece para siempre. 25 Por lo cual El también es poderoso para salvar para siempre a los que por medio de El se acercan a Dios, puesto que vive perpetuamente para interceder por ellos.
26 Porque convenía que tuviéramos tal sumo sacerdote: santo, inocente, inmaculado, apartado de los pecadores y exaltado más allá de los cielos, 27 que no necesita, como aquellos sumos sacerdotes, ofrecer sacrificios diariamente, primero por sus propios pecados y después por los pecados del pueblo; porque esto lo hizo una vez para siempre, cuando se ofreció a sí mismo. 28 Porque la ley designa como sumos sacerdotes a hombres débiles, pero la palabra del juramento, que vino después de la ley, designa al Hijo, hecho perfecto para siempre.

Jesus had no sins He had to account for as did other priests. He is the perfect High Priest who is able to go to the Father and beg mercy for us. He died for us. Do we realize just what He did for us, or do we take it for granted. Praise be Jesus, our High Priest and Savior!

Hebrews 9:11-15

11But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; 12Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. 13For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

11 Pero cuando Cristo apareció como sumo sacerdote de los bienes futuros, a través de un mayor y más perfecto tabernáculo, no hecho con manos, es decir, no de esta creación, 12 y no por medio de la sangre de machos cabríos y de becerros, sino por medio de su propia sangre, entró al Lugar Santísimo una vez para siempre, habiendo obtenido redención eterna. 13 Porque si la sangre de los machos cabríos y de los toros, y la ceniza de la becerra rociada sobre los que se han contaminado, santifican para la purificación de la carne, 14 ¿cuánto más la sangre de Cristo, el cual por el Espíritu eterno se ofreció a sí mismo sin mancha a Dios, purificará vuestra conciencia de obras muertas para servir al Dios vivo? 15 Y por eso El es el mediador de un nuevo pacto, a fin de que habiendo tenido lugar una muerte para la redención de las transgresiones que se cometieron bajo el primer pacto, los que han sido llamados reciban la promesa de la herencia eterna.

It is only through Jesus Christ that we can come to eternity. There is no other way! Some think that by being “good” or following paths of what seems good will get them there. No way! Jesus died and His blood was spilled for all of us to receive redemption. All we have to do is accept that fact and accept Jesus as our Savior. Just because you are doing “good” things doesn’t guarantee you a place in heaven.
