Does Christ Interceed For Us

After considering Hebrew 7:25 " Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make IINTERCESSION for them". If the Lord is interceding for us, why do we try to interceed on our own the behalf?

Christ is a better high priest, than any human. Jesus is holy, harmless, and undefiled. Now, no human can boast of this. OUR CASE as sinners we needed such a high priest. Before Jesus came we were never good enough to just walk into God's presence. [Not holy enough]. Because of Jesus we are now comfortable in God's presence.>>>Note:He mediated for that mercy for others which He did not need for Himself. In otherwords, Jesus is someone who acts as a link, or To intervene in order to bring about a reconcilation. This is possible through prayer in forgiveness, asking God for forgiveness.>>>> The answer to your question, WE DON'T.

Mima, when you're witnessing to people, do you ask them to make a confession of Christ?
If they're OSAS, that wouldn't even be necessary, would it? God's plan for them is to have their ticket ready, it's already been punched, they're in, check, check. They only way you would know which ones were the chosen ones, would to be God. Otherwise, you're spinning your wheels. Do you believe in OSAS, Mima?

We are human and think we need to do something on our own and don't have total faith in Jesus. 2 Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

We can be forgiven for ALL sins past present and future and yes it is biblical. 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. ALL is ALL and that's all. Past, present, and future.

Eternally secure, OSAS, inclusivism....

"But if a man or woman who has been rescued once from a state of unforgiveness need not worry. For once 100 percent of a mans or womans sins have been forgiven, the potential for being unforgiven has been done away with. The risk factor is zero. There are no more fires from which the believer needs to be saved." Do you believe that, Alan?

Claiming at the moment of receiving salvation there is forgiveness of all sins, both past and prospective. NO scripture makes such a claim. Just the opposite, however. Peter, he has been cleansed from his past sins (2 Peter 1:9). Only the sins of the past are forgiven at the time of conversion and at any time of repentance. After that, each time we sin we must repent and turn from our sin.

Scripture reinforces that -If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God (Hebrews 10:26-27).

Do you believe this, Alan?

The Bible clearly teaches that Gods love for His People is of such magnitude that even those who walk away from the faith have not the slightest chance of slipping from His hand. Even if a believer for all practical purposes becomes an unbeliever, his salvation is not in jeopardy and . . . believers who lose or abandon their faith will retain their salvation . . . .

If you believe those statements, there is no need for you to interceed on your own behalf.
There is no need to pray for your relatives or others. Let Jesus pray for you. Coast, ride, sail above the clouds at cruising speed. Or lay back in the weeds, every now and then, pull them apart and peer out.
Mima, you're asking all the questions. What's your stand on OSAS, eternal security.
---Virginia on 8/15/07

Jesus intercedes for us not only for our immediate benefit but also for our example. We are also called to make intercession for each other.

What a wonderful place this would be if we all became our brother's keeper and watched out for one another with prayer and good example.
---lorra8574 on 8/14/07

If we confess our sins He is faithfull and just to forgive us our sins...1Jn1. We need to confess and show our consciousness of our fault first and we also need to repent in order for Jesus to make intercession for us. He has no need to make intercession for us if we are disobedient with no concern about it. It is only when we are conscious of it and want to repent in Godly sorrow that He will do so.

Virginia ... I'm interested to see your comments.
You seem to be talking about Predestination ... God has chosen those he wants, so there would seem to be no need for us to do anything, even say the "sinners prawer"
Surely OSAS is a different issue, and is to do with the security of our salvation after we say the "sinners prayer", but only if we have said it.
BUt maybe I've as so often got the wrong end of the stick?
---alan_of_UK on 8/14/07

I believe our intercession should agree with His intercession. That releases His kingdom in the earth.
---Linda on 8/14/07

Mima, if you are eternally secure, OSAS, You can't lose, you don't need to interceed on your own behalf. It's all been done for you before you were ever born. So you could virtually coast, let it ride and still have the affection of God resting on your anointed head. You don't even need a relationship, set your cruising speed on auto pilot, resting high above the clouds.
---Virginia on 8/14/07

Yes, you could let Jesus pay the ultimate sacrifice and never enter His courts with thanksgiving and praise.
But that would be a one sided relationship, and you wouldn't have to bother witnessing, because your crown to lay at the feet of Jesus is already bejeweled with the finest. The only reason you're not wearing it yet, is because you're still on earth.
