1 John 2:1-2 (NKJV)
My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.


In the first two verses of 1 John 2, two words are used in relation to the Lord: Propitiation (in verse 2), and Advocate (in verse 1).They are NOT the same word.

As the Propitiation, Jesus is the Atonement Lamb, the Sacrifice; but as the Advocate, He is the High Priest.

He died as the Atonement Lamb, but He was raised as the Advocating High Priest.

The Lamb took away the sins of the whole world, so Propitiation is for all men, including all saints; but High Priest is the Advocate with the Father only for the Church.

As the Atonement Lamb, He is the Savior of the world; but as the Advocating High Priest, He is the Savior of the Body.

As the Atonement Lamb, Jesus became sin, died and went to hell; that all men might be justified; but concerning the High Priesthood, He is sinless, He lives and has ascended; that those who have been justified might be sanctified and glorified.

The Atonement brings to an end all that is of the old creation; the High Priesthood is for the perfecting of all that is of the new creation.

The Atonement or Propitiation is for sins committed in the old life; and under the old covenant for those who were under it, because the blood of bulls and goats in that covenant could not take away those sins. But the High Priesthood is for sanctification, cleansing and purifying in the new covenant for those who have new life.

So the Propitiation is for justification from past sins, but having been justified, if any one in the church sins, the Advocating High Priesthood deals with that.

Go into today remembering that you have a high priest who advocates for you. Live with the consciousness of His help.
