  1. 1. NO THRU TRAFFIC Heb CHAPTERS 8: 9: Incident: The overpass on route 13 in the direction of Laval recently. 8:1...Now this is the main point: Jesus is our mediator. And if he’s not, there’s no THRU TRAFFIC. John 14: 6... Jesus says unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. ! Way>follow him> Truth>listen>Life>emulate ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ In a hostage crisis, you need: Heb 8:2 • Negotiator // Scam/Pyramid: Investigator // In times of War: Truce Peacemaker // Event of a Fire: Fire fighter // • Build a house: Contractor: Restaurant: Waiter // Drowning: Rescuer // But in the heavenly Sanctuary: Mediator Heb 12:24...Jesus is the Mediator of the new covenant.>Love: God/Man And Jeremiah 31:31-34 makes mention of that covenant. Without Jesus being your Mediator, there’s no THRU TRAFFIC! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The fact is that: Buddha is in: • Meditation so it can’t pay attention to you // Confucius is so dazed so it can’t see you // Virgin Mary is dead, so she can’t speak to you // Holy Cow in India is only a cow... it will just moo at you. • But Jesus is alive and wants to listen to you! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Laws of ancient types and shadows were: vs.10 • Given>Now they’re written>they were inscribed in stone. Now they inscribed in your heart// You see, you can have a: • Cross around your neck but not have Jesus Christ in your Heart • Sing amazing grace but not live in grace • Talk about love and have everything but love • Go down a dry sinner and come up a wet sinner • Go under the water but not be under the blood Sing your way to hell with the bible in one hand and the hymnal in the other • But if Jesus is not your Mediator, there’s no THRU TRAFFIC Why? Because you’ve confused motion with progress. >? Treadmill> 1
  2. 2. You can: be going through the motions but not making progress. • Give gifts to those who are disenfranchised>at Christmas time • Healthcare Professional or volunteer // • Rich and Powerful: Give financial donations…starving people • Religious: Sacrifice your time Visiting, Feeding, Encouraging, Praying, and Loving>Personal Saviour • Committee & social services: Help a brother, sister, stranger, friend, churched and preach your heart out... • Educators: theology>other disciplines, if Jesus is not your’ll just be going through these motions but not making progress. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The ancient types and shadows were about: • An Earthly priest // Animal Blood / Consecration/ Offerings & Sacrifices/Sins But in Heb 9:15, the Bible speaks of: • A heavenly Priest /Mediator: A new Covenant/ Promises that Jesus has made/ spiritual heritage & redemption, and Jesus’ Blood. Bible says: All this time you are out on Parole, Christ died for you. Heb 9:16, your Mediator’s death breached the gap between earth and heaven with a ladder in the O.T. & a Cross in the N.T. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In Genesis 28:12, Jacob wonders how he’s ever going to have access to God, while John’s Gospel establishes that through Jesus, sinners have access to God, anytime, anywhere, anyhow. Heb 9:17, Jesus has willed his testament in your name. Let me read you... Look back on: O.T. Look forward to: N.T. Tragedy Triumph •  Wrong is vanquished Right is victorious  Eden lost Eden Regained  Human Priest Heavenly Mediator  Old Covenant New Covenant  Melchizedek priest of peace Jesus Prince of Peace  Animal blood Jesus’ blood  Ceremonial Law Moral Law  Earthly Sanctuary Heavenly Sanctuary Heb 9:27...And it is appointed for men to die once, but after this, the judgement. ! If you don’t have Jesus as Mediator, you’re at an impasse in this Poem: 2
  3. 3. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- >>>>>>>At birth, children are climbing a steep hill. In their teens they’re growing carefree and soon they’re paying bills • When they work and overwork, evidently, they’ll become ill. Soon their visit to the doctor will end in the prescription of pills. • However, if their recovery is indeterminate, their next step is to write their will. • But what if none of the above happens and by accident they get killed? • And there’s no one to mediate while the THRU TRAFFIC is still. • Have you wonder what would happen if Jesus would show up on the scene? • And point you to his mediation which he has performed on Calvary’s Hill • But the fact of the matter is, you just want your loves ones healed • Having chosen Jesus as your mediator, you’ll be sure! He’ll intervene -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- “Solomon concludes all is vanity.” Heb 9:28... So Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for him [including your love ones who died in a tragic accident or otherwise], will appear the second time, apart from sin, for salvation. 1 Timothy 2:5...For [there is] one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. ! If Christ Jesus had not been crucified breaching the gap between heaven and earth, there would not have been any THRU TRAFFIC! 3
