Day 26 – Jesus Christ Is My Advocate 1My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. 2He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2 NIV @ http://biblehub.com/niv/1_john/2.htm And at the Matthew Henry Commentary located @ http://biblehub.com/1_john/2-1.htm
*Special Affirmation – As a Believer, I have been admonished not to sin however, if I make a mistake and sin my Father God has blessed me with an advocate. My Advocate is Jesus Christ, the Righteous One who is the atoning sacrifice for my sins as well as the sins of the whole world.
Who Better to Be the World’s Advocate when Sin is a Factor and Evident in Our Lives because Jesus Christ is the Great I AM Who is also God in the Physical!!!
Jesus Christ claimed to be the “I AM.” It is the personal name of the God of the Old Testament (Exodus 3:13-14). On several occasions it is recorded that Jesus used the “I AM” formula in attesting to His deity. He claimed to be the LORD God, Jehovah, Yahweh. The greatest of all the names for the Lord Jesus Christ is the “I AM.” This is why the apostle Paul wrote: “God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11). Jesus is Lord. The name that is above all other names is “Lord,” and it is equivalent to “Jehovah” or Yahweh. This is the exact equivalent to the words, “I AM.” The name that is above all earthly and heavenly names is Yahweh, the great “I AM THAT I AM.” The apostle Paul tells us that the Lord Jesus is so above all other beings that all who are in heaven and the earth will bow and worship Him. He is God. He is not one among many gods, but the One and Only (Acts 4:12; 1 Timothy 2:5; 1 Corinthians 8:4). – Read More Commentary @ http://www.abideinchrist.com/selah/mar19.html ; And at the Matthew Henry Commentary located @ http://biblehub.com/exodus/3-13.htm ; And At Exodus 3 @ http://biblehub.com/niv/exodus/3.htm ; And At Other Biblical Scripture Commentaries Noted as follows: Philippians 2:9-11 @ http://biblehub.com/philippians/2-9.htm; “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 @ http://biblehub.com/acts/4-12.htm ; …“There is no God but one.” 1 Corinthians 8:4 @ http://biblehub.com/1_corinthians/8-4.htm ; “For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity--the man Christ Jesus” 1 Timothy 2:5 @ http://biblehub.com/1_timothy/2-5.htm
Your Advocate Always Wins Your Case
“1 John 2:1 “My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” If you want a glimpse of some real-life celestial drama, picture this: God the Father sits as Judge of the universe with Jesus Christ at His right hand, who is not only your High Priest, but also your Advocate. When your accuser, the devil, comes along and says, “You have done this wrong and you have not done that right,” Jesus says, “Father, the devil is right, but My blood has paid for what the devil is accusing him of.” ” – Read Complete Commentary @ https://plus.google.com/110227729841787560530/posts/6y7cUMYRe4g ; And at the Matthew Henry Commentary located @ http://biblehub.com/1_john/2-1.htm
Christ’s Mediating Ministry – He is Our Advocate
By Amazing Discoveries TM
“An advocate or mediator is someone who is on your side—a person who speaks in your defense so that you can receive a fair judgment. An advocate is like a lawyer in a jury trial that defends the one being charged with a crime. When God set up the earthly tabernacle and its system, He was giving an indication of what will take place during the final judgment of this world’s history. The heavenly court, however, is unlike any court in the world. The lamb that was slain for the sinner in the earthly tabernacle symbolizes how in the heavenly court the guilty party has someone who is willing to take their punishment. This, of course, is Jesus, who died on the cross for our sins. An active participant in the earthly sanctuary was the high priest. This very important person would plead the case of the sinful people in the holy place daily…” – Read Complete Commentary @
