What does this mean for me? Jesus was annointed with spikenard to be king. He was sacrificed as the passover lamb. He received the burrial of a priest. He is both king and priest.

Genesis 14:18

18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he [was] the priest of the most high God.

He was the only begotten son of God, and therefore the firstborn son. He was the sacrificial lamb of God. The blood of the passover sacrifice was applied to the door so the firstborn son would be passed over by the death angel.

We are sons of God:

John 1:12

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name:

Romans 8:14

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

1 John 3:2

2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

We are washed in his blood:

Revelation 1:5-7

5 And from Jesus Christ, [who is] the faithful witness, [and] the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him [be] glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they [also] which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

Jesus had all the ingrediants. He is the recipe for a dead man. Death could not hold him, and if we are in him, we are delivered from death and the grave. I was that dead man, but Jesus has changed that. His blood payed the price for my sins. His blood payed the price for his own death. Therefore the efficacy of that same blood to raise Jesus from the dead shall also raise us from the death of our sins into everlasting life with our saviour.
