Christ's Sacrifice Once for All

Updated on January 31, 2011

The law was only a copy of good things in the future, it was not the real thing, the same sacrifices, offered year after year could never make worshipers perfect.

Otherwise, they would have stopped making sacrifices, because the worshipers would have been made clean once for all time, they would not feel guilty, but every year when sacrifices were made, the people remembered their sins, goat's blood or bull's blood could never take away sin.

So, when Christ came into the world, this is what he said: "You did not want a sacrifice or an offering, but you prepared a body for me, You were not pleased with burnt offerings or sin offerings, then I said,"Look! I have come to do what You want, O God!' this is written about me in the first part of the scroll."           Psalm 40:6-8.

Buit the law said that these things must be offered, then he said,"Look! I have come to do what You want." God took away the first group of sacrifices, so that He could set up the second sacrifice, because God wanted to do that, we have been made holy once for all time through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ.

( His Blood has sealed the agreement)

A priest serves at worship service every day, he offers the same sacrifices again and again, but these things can never take away sin. But after Jesus offered one sacrifice for sin forever, He sat down at God's right side, now He is waiting for His enemies to be put under His feet, there are people who have become holy, with one sacrifice Christ made them perfect forever.

The Lord God says, "This is the agreement I will make with them in the future: I will put My laws on their hearts, I will write My laws on their minds, I will forget about their sins and their wrongs."  Jeremiah 31: 31-34.

When these people are forgiven, sacrifices for sin are no longer needed, so with the blood of Jesus we have confidennce to go into the most holy place, His body is the new living way that made an opening through the curtain, (this is his body), we have a great Priest serving over God's house, too.

So let us come with a true heart and be sure of our faith, our hearts should be washed with pure water, let us hold tightly to the hope we said we believe in, God promised and He is dependable, and let us think about how we may cause one another to love and to do good things.

Do not quit meeting together as some people are in the habit of doing, instead encourage one another even more, since you see the day coming closer.

We have received the truth; we know it, if we continue sinning on purpose there will be no more sacrifices for sin, only a terrible waiting for judgement and for the great fire to burn up the enemies of God.

If someone did not want to obey the law of Moses, and two or three people said that this was true, then that person died without mercy, who deserves even more punishment  than that?the person who walks all over the Son of God who thinks that the blood which made him holy is unholy, who insults the loving Holy Spirit.

"Revenge belongs to Me; I will pay it back."   Dueteronomy 32;35.

"The Lord God will judge His people."   Dueteronomy  32;35.

It will be a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God!, do you remember those days when you first received God's light? you won a great contest of suffering,sometimes you suffered when they called you bad names,and when they took away your property, you knew that you owned better things which will last.

So, don't throw away your confidence! it will be greatly rewarded, you need to have enduance, then when you have done what God wants you will receive what God promised.

The scripture says this:

"In a very short time God will come.

He will not be late.

The person who is right with God by Faith will live forever.

But if that person moves back, I will not be pleased with him." Habakkuk 2:3.

We are not like the person who moves back and is destroyed, we are like the person who believes and is saved!.

taken from Hebrews 10
