Jesus Bridge Builder
(Revelation 20.3)
Page 282

"He (the angel from heaven) threw him (Satan) into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time." (Revelation 20.3)✞

Human Beings

Wooden BridgeThe Latin for "priest" was "pontifex," which meant "a bridge builder." The priest was intended to be the builder of a bridge between God and human beings. Jesus the great bridge builder and High Priest was the only one who has brought God and human beings together. The human priest was a pale shadow in this respect not capable of bringing God and mankind together himself but only to introduce Jesus, the only one capable of completing this task.✞


DeathFor Christians, death has been utterly vanquished. The second death has no power over us. Physical death for us is not a thing to be feared, for it is the gateway to life everlasting. We are to be the priests of God and of Christ. In Christ, even the most ordinary Christian becomes a priest and a bridge builder with Christ.✞

God and Human Beings

Jesus Icon the AlmightyJesus was the only one with the right of direct access into the presence of God. Those who have been loyal to Jesus Christ have the privilege of introducing others to Jesus Christ and may also enter into God's presence. They too will reign with Christ.✞
