When Jesus Died on the Cross, those rights were no longer needed.
Gods people no Longer needed a high priest as a mediator, Jesus became the Mediator.
This means as believers
- we now have the privilege to access God anywhere and at anytime because He now lives inside of us through His Spirit.
- You do not need a priest to Confess your sins to, Jesus has become the ultimate High priest.
- We become closer to God.
Hebrews Chapter 4 verse 14

Let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.
