Names of Jesus – Day 13 – Mediator


Contrary to catholic belief, Mary is not our mediator. In fact, the Bible is quite clear as to Who is our Mediator. It is as if the Holy Spirit saw into the future and knew that the roman system would try to incorporate an entire doctrine around Mary. So He (the Holy Spirit) made sure to include quite a few verses in the Bible to make it perfectly clear to us just who is the one and only mediator.

What do the Scriptures say?

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; ~1 Timothy 2:5

Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. ~Galatians 3:19

Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. ~Galatians 3:20

But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. ~Hebrews 8:6

And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. ~Hebrews 9:15

And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. ~Hebrews 12:24

Noah Webster defines mediator as:

1. By way of eminence, Christ is the mediator, the divine intercessor through whom sinners may be reconciled to an offended God. Tim.2.

Christ is a mediator by nature, as partaking of both natures divine and human; and mediator by office, as transacting matters between God and man.

Mary does not have a divine nature. Mary was blessed to have been chosen as the vessel in which the Saviour would enter this world. However, she is not part of the godhead nor is she divine.

The catholic church says that Mary pleads our case to Jesus, who then pleads our case to the Father. However, this belief contradicts 1 Timothy 2:5. This verse says that there is only one mediator between God and man and that’s Christ. Christ is God, is He not? Therefore, man can go straight to God without any human mediator whatsoever. Christ, the divine Mediator, has rightfully obtained this title by His very death on the cross. What makes this so hard to understand? The catholic church further identifies Mary as the one who intercedes on our behalf. Again, the Holy Spirit saw this coming as well and He made sure to include Scriptures that would reveal this as heresy!

Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. ~Romans 8:34

Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. ~Hebrews 7:25

Let’s face it folks. When you take the dogmas of the roman system and compare them to the Scriptures, they fall flat on their faces.

Jesus Christ is our Mediator. This is His title. No one else’s… plain and simple! To attach these precious titles of our Lord and Saviour to Mary, or anyone else for that matter, is just as bad as if they blaspheme the Holy Name of Jesus Christ. None is more deserving of our faith, our love and our loyalty than Christ, our Redeemer, our Mediator and our Intercessor!
