The term mediation properly applies to Christ since unbelievers are Gods enemy. But the ones spoken of in Babylon are Gods people not enemy. So mediation is not required but obedience.
So your position is that there is one mediator between God and man, Jesus Christ -- refers not to Christ mediating between the saints and God, but only to unbelievers that are God's enemy. Is this correct?

Does that also mean He is no longer our High priest, that this stopped the minute we accepted the New Covenant? Because according to Hebrews as our High priest He is the mediator of a better covenant.

Also, why would the new covenant be between God and His enemies?
They shall live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God
