He Who Bleeds,
A Systematic Theology of Intercession
by Susan Ector Ward
A theology of intercession? He who intercedes bleeds.
Ward opens the curtain into the Holy of Holies and invites us all to walk in.
What is inside that mysterious room?
It is a place of bleeding and healing. As our Lord has gone before us, He calls us to join Him beyond the curtain into the room of intercession.
He Who Bleeds describes our Savior. So if Jesus is the image of the invisible God, then can we not see the character of the Invisible God in our Savior Jesus Christ?
He is The God Who Bleeds.
He is calling us to join Him in a special place.
Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter
into the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus
What happens inside that Most Holy Place?
The Holy of Holies has one function.
It is the place where intercession is made.
He Who Bleeds is a call to intercessors.
The LORD saw it, and it displeased him
that there was no justice. And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor. Isaiah 59:15-16
There was no justice.
There was no intercessor.
Innocent victims all over the globe in the 21st century
cry for justice. God wants justice.
God looks for intercessors!
