High Priest Intercession

Exo 28:29  And Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel in the breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goeth in unto the holy place, for a memorial before the LORD continually.
As the High Priest for Israel, Aaron wore the twelve precious stones representing the twelve tribes of Israel on his breastplate over his heart when he entered the Holy of Holies. He was to have his heart covered with the welfare of his people. The stones were as a memorial. Now we in the New Covenant may go into the throne room of God because our heart is covered with the blood of Christ, made pure by his righteousness. We have a Great High Priest, Jesus Christ, who prays for us and intercedes for us against the accusations of the devil.
Heb 4:14  Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
Heb 4:15  For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Heb 4:16  Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

1Pe 5:6  Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
1Pe 5:7  Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

By the Holy Spirit of God in us, we have direct access to God the Father and God the Son.
Joh 17:14  I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Joh 17:15  I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
Joh 17:16  They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
Joh 17:17  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
Joh 17:18  As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

We have the Spirit of God to come to God for the needs we have and for others, and to bring others to the saving grace of Jesus.
