He always lives to make intercession for them.
Contrary to what is commonly assumed, the five korbanot ,קורבנות offerings described in the beginning of the Book of Leviticus are not meant for sin atonement. While the sin and guilt offerings portray an acknowledgment and confession of sin, the others are statements of thankfulness, gratefulness, praise, and dedication. The main atonement offering in the Levitical system is what is called the Tamid תמיד, the daily perpetual morning and evening offering (Lev. 6:8-13).
Like two book ends, the Tamid opened the day's offerings, and closed it. These two offerings are the foundation of the two main prayer services in the Temple, and are still today the theme from where the synagogue service and daily personal prayers were conceived. When Luke in the Book of Acts mentions, "And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes …" (Acts 2:46), he informs us that the disciples attended these lamb offering based services. Peter and John are also mentioned going to the temple’s evening service (Acts 3:1). This is important information as it teaches us that the disciples of the Master continued to attend Temple services and liturgies even after Yeshua’s resurrection. They had never stopped.
The two lambs offered one in the morning and one in the evening provided a continual lamb presence on the altar before God. Those who did not come to the Temple prayed in synchronicity in their homes facing Jerusalem.
At his last Passover on earth, our Master was nailed to the cross at the time the priests offered the morning offering. All day while Yeshua was on the cross, throngs of locals and pilgrims offered their Passover lambs. The Mishnah records that at the end of the ordeal towards mid-afternoon, the High-priest who worked hard in the hot Jerusalem sun says, "I thirst", and is offered a drink. At the end of the whoel thing this same high-priest declares, "it is finished'. Our Master, the high-priest from above, concurred these very words while on the cross, then remitted his Spirit to his Father at the very time of the evening offering that closed the day's services (Mark 15:25,33,34). As Yeshua was put in the tomb just before dusk, Jewish families put their striped and pieced unleavened breads in their ovens.
The Tamid is therefore a perfect picture of the intercessory role of Messiah in our lives. As the writer of the Letter sent to the Messianic believers of Jerusalem says of him, "He is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them" (Heb. 7:25).
Yeshua the innocent righteous victim, truly stands at the right hand of the Father always ready to intercede for us because, "The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working" (James 5:16).
