Advocate


Welcome to Word-Filled Wednesday hosted by Christy at Critty Joy. Check out the pictures inspired by the Word of God.

At the end of chapter 16, Job makes a statement that eludes to an advocate in heaven who intercedes for him. What did he believe? Or did he simply say what he was inspired to say without an understanding of its implications?

Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high. My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God; on behalf of a man he pleads with God as a man pleads for his friend” —Job 16:19-20.



What a beautiful picture of the advocate we have with our Father—Jesus Christ who intercedes on our behalf as the One who paid for our release with his own blood.

My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the father in our defense—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sin of the whole world” —1 John 2:1, 2

    Thank you for sharing these scriptures and stopping by my blog for a WFW visit so I'd come and meet you! I'm so glad I did. Not only are you an author of a wonderful looking devotional to fill 365 days of the year with His Word but you are a missionary in a Spanish speaking country! I'm so delighted! Bookmarked you and hope I remember to come back & visit again.
