Hebrews 3:1 (AMPC): "...consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest Whom we confessed [as ours when we embraced the Christian faith]."
Jesus is the high priest of our confession. This means He personally takes our confession before the Father, and presents it to Him as righteous and authentic. He literally comes into agreement with us, before the Father, and watches over our words to see them performed in our lives. In John 15:16 Jesus said while we remain in Him, whatever we ask the Father in His Name (the Name of Jesus) the Father will give it to us. This powerful, inseparable relationship we have with Jesus, through the finished work of the cross, has allowed us a privilege we must never take for granted. He has ensured that while we are diligently walking in fellowship and harmony with Him, He will back every prayer we pray and see it become our reality. Hebrews 4 adds this very important clause: the prayers Jesus backs and guarantees to be answered must firstly be in line with the Word of God; and secondly, we must believe! Mechanical prayers not spoken from our believing hearts will not do. So step into harmony with your great, faithful High Priest today; believe in what He has promised you, and trust Him to see it come to pass.
