The New Covenant Intercessor

After mediating the Law Covenant, Moses did not leave the people to their own devices, but was still interested in them. So much was he devoted to them that, he became mediator in the sense of reconciler or intercessor with God on their behalf. The first occasion for this came soon after the covenant had been ratified. (Ex. 32: 30-32.) Similarly, the mediator of the New Covenant does not leave to their own devices those who have entered into that arrangement, but continues to be interested in their welfare, so that it is written,

“If any man sin, we have an advocate [or helper] with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” (1 John 2 : 1.)

He ever lives to make intercession for them that have come unto God by Him (Heb. 7: 25), and is therefore able to save them to the uttermost, being the surety of this better covenant. It is necessary to be remembered, too, that His priestly office of Intercessor is based on His Mediatorship of the New Covenant just as Moses’ intercession for fleshly Israel was based on his mediatorship of the Law Covenant. (It had been the divine intention to vest the two offices permanently in Moses; but on his demurral (Ex. 4: 10-16) Aaron was given him for spokesman, and he subsequently occupied the high-priestly office, thus becoming a type of Christ as Intercessor. — (Heb. 7: 20-28.) And as Moses did not intercede for other people, outside the covenant relationship, neither does Jesus act as Intercessor for any outside the New Covenant relationship. Now Jesus is the Mediator of a better covenant.

“now but more excellent he has obtained a service by as much also of a better he is covenant a mediator, which on better promises has been instituted.” (Heb 8:6 Diaglot)

He is the Mediator because He gave “a ransom for all.” He is Intercessor

“by how much also He is the Mediator of a better covenant.”

These offices of our blessed Saviour are interdependent; none can be wholly a success without the others. The Ransom is the foundation; the Mediatorial office for the negotiation of the New Covenant is based on that foundation; the Mediatorial office for Intercession is the third course of the structure.
