Jesus Christ is Advocate, Intercessor, Mediator, and Ransom for all in the world. But preachers have convinced people that Jesus Christ is the Advocate, Intercessor, Mediator, and Ransom, for them only. So they say that God will forgive their sins so they will go to heaven. But if they are going to heaven because Jesus Christ is Advocate, Intercessor, Mediator, and Ransom, the whole world will go to heaven, since Jesus Christ is all these to all in the world, but not for just to a group of Christians. They preach that Jesus Christ is the mediator with the Father at the final Judgment to get these groups of Christians out of hell and to take them to heaven. It is not what Jesus Christ does as the mediator. "Hebrews 8:6 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." The mediator establishes a better covenant, which is one sacrifice and one forgiveness, when a person overcomes sins and will not sin again, and then his/her past sins are forgiven once, as in "Romans 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;" So, Jesus Christ will forgive sins in the better covenant, that is one time forgiveness when a person ceased from committing sins.
