Atonement and Intercession

John 17:9


You cannot separate the atonement of Christ from the intercession of Christ. In Hebrews 7 we read that Christ, our High Priest in heaven, is always interceding for us. But our Savior tells us in John 17, that he only makes intercession for his elect. There he says, ŇI pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thineÓ (v. 9).

ThatŐs pretty clear, isnŐt it? The intercessory work of Christ is based upon his atonement, just as the intercession of the Old Testament priest was based upon the sacrifice (Numbers 6:24-26).

That means that if the Lord Jesus Christ does not pray for the world, the world can never be saved. If he prays for you, you cannot not be saved. If he died for you, you cannot not be saved!
