Highlights from Hebrews: The Real Mercy Seat

Highlights from Hebrews: The Real Mercy Seat Sermon Audio Here


Hebrews 9:24-28

There is a wonderful illusion I saw as a child, and I’ve never forgotten it. It was a parabolic mirror hologram. You place a real object on a parabolic mirror, and cover it with another mirror with a hole. The combination casts a visual-but-not-solid “model” of the original object.

How Does The Mercy Seat Model Work?

Real Mercy Seat Is The Presence Of God
v24 “sanctuary”=copy of Heaven (cf. Vs 1-6);

Sacrificial Blood Allows God To Meet With Us
v25/26 to do away with sin

  • the old model was tainted and had to be repeatedly cleansed. Jesus, on the other hand, went into the REAL Holy Place, and fulfilled the function of the old system

We Are Ushered Into God’s Presence By Jesus
v27/28 bring salvation to those waiting

  • someday, Jesus will return to actually bring us Home;
  • Communion Table fulfills a similar function as the Mercy Seat

We are brought into God’s presence when we gather together recognizing the Veil has been torn from the inside out!
