Hebrews 8:6-8,10-12

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 6 But now he [Christ] has obtained a more excellent ministry, since he [Christ] is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. [The light, (Christ), is the mediator of the new covenant; he mediates between God and man. Those commands we hear or see revealed that command us to change our behaviors, (to repent), are laws put in our mind and written in our heart and are added to the inner law on every man's heart. From the Word of the Lord within: "When you have heard the dead words in the Bible and recall them, heed what is said; always obedient to His commands. You must obey every law the Spirit establishes."]

 7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then there would have been no replacement sought for a second [covenant].

 8 For finding fault with them, He said, "Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah;

 10 For this is the [new] covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts;2 and I will be to them a God, and they will be to me a people. [Christ is the mediator of the new covenant of God. Christ is the light given to every man to believe what he anonymously shows them and/or pleads with them to forsake their evil ways. If a man believes Christ's anonymous pleading for him to stop a certain behavior and so repents, then that command becomes a new law engrafted in that man's heart, supplementing the inner law in the heart of every man; and Christ removes even the desire for that sin from that man's heart, until finally a man is freed from all sin.]

 11 And they will not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' for all will know me, from the least to the greatest.

 12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and I will remember their sins and their iniquities no more."

1 Timothy 2:5

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 5 For there is one God [the Father], and one mediator between God and men, Christ Jesus, himself [having been] human, [So praying to Mary or supposed saints directly conflicts with scripture; it denies the preeminence of Christ Jesus as the one-and-only mediator between God and man, and it is an abomination. From the Word of Lord within: "they bow to saints that they themselves have created; they bless their own ways. The men in the sects decide who are saints, and then they pray to them as though they are Gods." This is just an imitation of the practice of the Roman Senate, to designate emperors as Gods: Julius Caesar, Augustus, etc.

Protestant Christianity teaches that Christ being the mediator, is like a defense lawyer who never loses a case and is going to excuse their life of sin because they "believe;" but that is not the function of Christ the mediator. The mediator's function is not to excuse, it is to mediate the new covenant, writing the law of God in a man's heart, so changing a man to become holy and pure, freed from all sin, perfected forever, and in union with Christ and God, speaking and working according to the will of God, not the man's own will any longer.

From the Word of the Lord within:

 3 Who being the brightness of his glory and the representation of his being, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had made ready a cleansing of sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high, [Notice! Jesus then was ready to cleanse sins, not excuse sins, not ignore sins, but to free them from the slavery to sin to totally cleanse and perfect them, sanctifying them and making them holy forever, Heb 10:14. That is what true grace does; true grace redeems from all iniquity (sin, lawless deeds), and purifies a people who are His very own, zealous for good works, which works are done by His direction in exactly what to do and all words to say.]
