The Heavenly Calling

HEBREWS 3:1-6

Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;

Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.

For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.

For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.

And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;

But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

What does it mean to Partake –

to take or have a part or share along with others; participate (usually followed by in )

to receive, take, or have a share or portion (usually followed by of)

What is this heavenly calling?

This heavenly calling is intercession.

Why do I believe the heavenly calling is intercession?

Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. ~ Hebrews‬ ‭7:25‬‬
