Our Savior, Priest and Judge - 4
In the Old Testament sanctuary, the animal sacrifices represented Jesus, the One who would die to save the sinner. The priest also represented Jesus, for He is the one who intercedes [pleads] for our forgiveness. The broad sanctuary entrance pointed to Him, for He is the “way” to salvation. We will see that Jesus is also the end-time Judge. Indeed, “in him all things hold together” Colossians 1:17.

1. How did John describe Jesus?
 John 1:29, NKJV- “Behold! the (a)_______ of God who takes away the sin of the world!” In the old covenant, God’s intention was that every lamb slain as a sacrifice for sin should remind His people that the real sacrifice, the Son of God, would come one day to die in their place.

2. What other important role does Jesus have?
Hebrews 7:24-25, NKJV- “But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable (a)_________________.25 Therefore He is also able to (b)______ to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make (c)______________ for them.” The role of the priest is to intercede, to stand before God on the sinner’s behalf. Earthly priests die eventually, and have to be replaced. But Jesus lives forever. We no longer have to confess our sins to any earthly priest. We have direct access to heaven.

3. What office did Jesus Himself declare to be His?
John 5:22, NKJV- "For the Father (a)_______ no one, but has committed all (b)___________ to the Son.” Jesus said when He returns to earth He is the One who will determine our destiny. "All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will (c)_________ them one from another, as a shepherd (d)__________ his sheep from the goats” Matthew 25:32, NKJV. Of course, before pronouncing sentence, a case has to be tried [investigative judgment]. The final phase [executive judgment] is when punishment is enforced. Our life choices and responses to the Spirit of God are what will determine our final end. The two thieves crucified along with Jesus had made ungodly life choices. But one of them responded to the Holy Spirit in his last moments, and Jesus the Judge declared him saved.

4. What sobering thought must not escape us?
 2 Corinthians 5:10, NKJV- “For we must (a)_________ appear before the (b)__________ seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has (c)________, whether good or bad.” Christ, the Judge, will preside over this investigative phase of judgment. We do not have to be there in person. The books of heaven hold our life records (Malachi 3:16; Daniel 7:10).

5. Whose cases will come up first before God?
 1 Peter 4:17, NKJV- For the time has come for (a)___________ to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us (b)_______, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? The investigative judgment begins with those who claim to be followers of Jesus. If the people of God will not escape the scrutiny of the judgment, what about those who have never accepted Him?

6. How do we know that Jesus is doing everything possible to help us pass the test of judgment?
2 Peter 3:9 NKJV- “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is (a)________________ toward us, not willing that (b)________ should (c)_________ but that all should come to repentance.”
