Eternal Redemption- Hebrews 9

The Hebrew writer further explains in chapter 9 how the blood of Christ secures “eternal redemption.” He explains in verses 1-10 how the tabernacle had been set up, what the holy place was for and where it was located, and finally how the Most Holy Place was separated. The priests went into the first section, but the High Priest alone went into the most holy place — and then only once per year.

These places and those things in them, he says, are mere copies of the heavenly places. By contrast, Jesus Christ has entered into heaven “now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf.” He has done that by sacrificing His own blood. And unlike the high priests before Him, He only had to do that once.
