And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, so also Christ was offered once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him. Hebrews 9:27-28 (NLT)
In the old testament, there was animal sacrifice to cleanse sin. However, when Christ offered himself to God, he would cleanse us once and for all. Christ died to us free and we don’t have to bring a sacrifice. We just to bring ourselves. The Scriptures states in Romans 12:1 present your body as holy, and pleasing sacrifice. (paraphrase)
In fact, according to the law of Moses, nearly everything was purified with blood. For without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness. Hebrews 9:22
In the old system, without purification and shedding of blood; there was no forgiveness.
There would have to be an animal sacrifice year and year. Jesus appeared to God on our behalf, He died once and for all to remove through his death.
Each person is destined to die and then we will receive our final judgement. Our bite states the He died once and for all to take away the sins of many people. He is coming again soon, not to deal with sin; but to bring salvation to those waiting for Him.
1 Peter 1:17 And remember that the heavenly Father to whom you pray has no favorites. He will judge or reward you according to what you do. So you must live in reverent fear of him during your time here as “temporary residents.”
God has no favorites and he is going to judge or reward your life according to what you do. Live in fear of Him during this temporary time.
Philippians 3:20 But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior.
1 Peter 2:24
He personally carried our sins
in his body on the cross
so that we can be dead to sin
and live for what is right.
By his wounds
you are healed.
We need blood to live. It has to pump throughout the body to stay alive. Sister, we also needed the blood of Jesus to spill that we might live. His blood is necessary for your life. He did it once and for all your sins. His blood represents life. You need His blood to live. Have you realized the blood was spilled to cleanse your life? Your life is not your own. You have been bought with a very high price. He did it so you can be healed, to do what is right. He doesn’t have any favorites. Everyone will be judged. Live right in the temporary home. Our eternal residence is in Heaven where He lives. Are you eager waiting?
If you never received Christ by faith, today you can be cleansed with the blood that you may truly live Sister. He did it for you. He wants you to live and be healed of your past and look forward to spending eternity in Heaven.
Lord, I have failed you and my sin has separated me from you. Please forgive me. I need a Savior, you sent Jesus to spill his blood to cleanse me once and for all. Would you come into my life today that I may live, and have eternal life. Direct my life today. In Jesus Name, Amen.
