Accounts of

Exodus 39:22-32

And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and wrote upon it a writing, like the engravings of a signet: Holiness to the LORD.

Ex. 39:30 KJ21

Can the Eternal be more than one?

The earthly high priest reflects the reality of the heavenly High Priest. We know who that heavenly High Priest is. On the head covering of our heavenly High Priest it is written: "Sanctity to the Eternal". Sanctity means exclusivity, total devotion and surrender. Our heavenly high Priest is totally and exclusively devoted to the Eternal in favour of all men of earth.  

The following question rises: "If he were the Eternal himself, how could he serve the Eternal and be set apart for Him? Could the Eternal serve Himself?

The whole idea of the Messiah's deity falls to the ground when we understand his heavenly ministry as priest. The great thing is that he is a man and he represents all men before the Eternal and he is serving before the Eternal with a spirit of fear and reverence.

Blessed be the Eternal for having lifted up our Rabbi to become the everlasting heavenly High Priest on our behalf!
