The True Purpose of the Blood of Christ and the Meaning of 'Remission' - Part 2
From Part 1 of this series, we saw evidence that the purpose of the Passover lamb’s blood as the foreshadow or allegory of Christ’s blood does not line up to what Christianity teaches. It has been twisted to mean something completely different.
Please read Part 1 of this series in the link below as you will need get all the evidence there to make sense of Part 2 here.
Forgiveness and Atonement
What you will soon discover next is that we must have forgiveness first before we can receive the atoning blood of Christ. If we don’t have it first, it means that the atonement sacrifice will be rejected by God. To find this truth, we must go back into the Old Testament.
Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer, and put fire in it, and laid incense on it, and offered strange fire before Yahweh, which he had not commanded them. And fire came forth from before Yahweh, and devoured them, and they died before Yahweh. Then Moses said to Aaron, "This is what Yahweh spoke of, saying, 'I will show myself holy to those who come near me, and before all the people I will be glorified.'" Aaron held his peace. – Leviticus 10:1-3
Making an atonement sacrifice was the priest’s job, but before he could do the ordinance, he had to be ‘sanctified’ before he could enter the holy of holies. The priest could not bring his sin with him into the sanctuary, but first had to be ‘forgiven’ before making the atonement. This means that forgiveness had to happen first before atonement could be made.
David said to Nathan, "I have sinned against Yahweh." Nathan said to David, "Yahweh also has put away your sin. You will not die. – 2 Samuel 12:13
David did not make a blood sacrifice to be forgiven of his sins. He repented of his sin and he was forgiven. All because David repented, did not mean that he escaped the penalty for his sins.
However, because by this deed you have given great occasion to Yahweh's enemies to blaspheme, the child also who is born to you shall surely die." – 2 Samuel 12:14
David escaped death for the time being, but he would still suffer the consequences for his sins.
Now therefore the sword will never depart from your house, because you have despised me, and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.' "This is what Yahweh says: 'Behold, I will raise up evil against you out of your own house; and I will take your wives before your eyes, and give them to your neighbor, and he will lie with your wives in the sight of this sun. For you did it secretly, but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun.'" – 2 Samuel 12:10-12
If the shedding of blood caused one to escape the penalty for sin, then David could have made a sacrifice before God to keep his son alive and ward off the punishments that were coming his way. There is no such teaching under the Law where one can escape the penalty for sin in ancient Israel by making a sacrifice.
People might argue that David suffered the consequences of sin, but avoided the death penalty for his sin. David repented, but still there is no evidence in Scripture that anyone who performed blood sacrifice escaped death. All have died in the end. No person even having the blood sacrifice of Christ has ever escaped death because all have fallen asleep in death that have come before us.
Right here, we can see the lie that many believe that through the shedding of animal blood they can avoid the penalty for their sins. If you have been indoctrinated into false teaching then you must suppose that under the old covenant that the escape from the penalty of sin was through atonement by the blood sacrifice of animals.
However, we find that repentance was accepted by God in this following verse.
If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. - 2 Chronicles 7:14
Moving on to the new covenant, many are deceived into believing that Christ provides an escape for the penalty of your sins through his blood sacrifice.
As we have already seen, the evidence of Scripture has proven that animal blood did not provide forgiveness under the law.
‘Remission’ through the blood of Christ means freedom through him from being captive to our sins, not free from the penalty of committing them.
Under the Law, the atonement ritual was performed by the priest to cleanse the people’s flesh from their past sins, but it did not include their present or future ones. Many are mistaken in believing that they are forgiven, not only of their past sins, but their present and future sins also. If that is the case, then repentance would no longer be required. This is why many have sidelined repentance because the purpose of the blood of Christ has been turned into a ‘license to sin.’ They believe they cannot be completely free from the bondage of sin in their lifetime. That is why they promote the ‘imputed righteousness’ and ‘original sin’ doctrines. All their teaching comes to the ultimate conclusion that they can never be set free from their sins in their current flesh and that it is impossible to strive to attain to be sinless in this lifetime by following in the footsteps of Christ. You must concede that we are all hopelessly sold under sin and cannot escape from them being deemed a sinner always. This is why they love to quote this following verse out of context.
But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. – Isaiah 64:6
Under the ‘original sin’ doctrine in the Catholic faith and their harlot daughters, even if you have cease from all your personal sins, you are still deemed a sinner. Mankind are all deemed sinners, even if they do not sin. This is why they have infant baptism because they believe in inherited sin. Their supposed logic is that because babies die that it is proof that they are ‘born sinners,’ yet they die themselves claiming that God no longer sees them as a sinner.
The soul who sins, he shall die: the son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be on him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be on him. – Ezekiel 18:20
Are we going to believe church dogma or the message of the prophets that ‘the soul who sins shall die?’
The blood of Christ’s purpose was to brings us freedom from sin, not just forgiveness of our past sins.
The Inverse Fallacy
Christians commit an inverse fallacy in their understanding of a passage in Hebrews. What this means is that the inverse of a Scripture passage may be true, but not always. The inverse fallacy is when the inverse of a particular passage is assumed to be true, but it is not.
For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who have been defiled, sanctify to the cleanness of the flesh: how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? – Hebrews 9:13-14
We can deduce that if the blood of goats and bulls can cleanse and purify, then the blood of Christ can.
The conditional premise of this verse demands that the inverse is true, or it refutes itself.
If the blood of goats and bulls cannot cleanse, then the blood of Christ cannot.
The premise of this passage is that Christ’s blood can cleanse and purify from sin based on the blood of animals being able to cleanse and purify also. If someone were to denounce the idea that the blood of animals cannot cleanse and purify, it only follows that Christ’s blood cannot either. This is a good example of the inverse of the original statement being true.
Let’s look at Hebrews 9:22.
According to the law, nearly everything is cleansed with blood, and apart from shedding of blood there is no remission. – Hebrews 9:22
Church doctrine makes the conclusion that because the passage states, ‘without blood’ there is no remission, that the inverse is true also, meaning that ‘with blood there is remission.’
However, the inverse is clearly denied in the next chapter of Hebrews.
For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins. – Hebrews 10:4
It can be plainly understood that animal blood does not take away sins. Without the blood, there is no remission is correct, but it is not true that the blood of animals promised remission under the law. Only atonement was.
If ‘atonement’ meant ‘remission,’ meaning cessation, then why was blood commanded to be spilled year after year according to the law?
For the law, having a shadow of the good to come, not the very image of the things, can never with the same sacrifices year by year, which they offer continually, make perfect those who draw near. Or else wouldn't they have ceased to be offered, because the worshippers, having been once cleansed, would have had no more consciousness of sins? But in those sacrifices there is a yearly reminder of sins. – Hebrews 10:1-3
Obviously, the blood under the law could not bring freedom from sin.
What we can conclude by the evidence of Scripture is that ‘remission’ and ‘forgiveness’ are not the same. Under the Law when animal blood was shed, it was for the purpose of cleansing (atonement), not forgiveness.
Bondage or Freedom
What is the difference between Christ’s blood and animal blood?
How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? – Hebrews 10:14
Christianity focuses on the word ‘conscience’ to mean that sin brings us into captivity through our feelings of guilt. If they are able to purge their ‘conscience,’ then they can deny having a ‘sin problem’ because they believe that it was God’s intent all along to put us under the guilt of the law to ‘set them free’ from guilt by nullifying His own law. Their answer to their sin problem is that they don’t have to feel guilty about their sins. They ‘rebuke the devil’ for his attack on their conscience.
But the Spirit says expressly that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons, through the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron – 1 Timothy 4:1-2
How we perceive the purpose of the blood of Christ will lead to bondage or freedom. Christians actually believe that Christ’s blood can take away their guilty conscience. It is not only the wiping away of the conscience of their past and present sins, but also their future ones. This is likened to the searing destructive doctrine that Paul was talking about in his epistle to Timothy.
They love to quote this following verse as the supposed ‘truth’ of their doctrine.
Or else wouldn't they have ceased to be offered, because the worshippers, having been once cleansed, would have had no more consciousness of sins? – Hebrews 10:2
The ‘liberty’ that is taught in the harlot church system is a life of guilt free sin through the blood of Christ. They fail to understand that the meaning of ‘remission’ in Hebrews means to be free from sin completely. Yet, in their delusion if there is no more sin in their minds, then there is nothing to be guilty about.
The false Gospel of Christendom is exposed as a ‘license to sin’ where people have been purged of a guilty conscience while still remaining in their sins. This makes their Gospel counterfeit.
The genuine Gospel points to Christ where our past sins can be forgiven. Through atonement, the residue of our past life can be purged through cleansing and purification that will bring forth the fruit of repentance. Genuine repentance is change of heart and mind where we turn (action) from our sins with the intention of not returning to them again. The remission of our past sins means to be set free from them; therefore, there will be no requirement to bring remembrance to them.
None of his transgressions that he has committed shall be remembered against him: in his righteousness that he has done he shall live. – Ezekiel 18:22
We are admonished to continue to press forward. We have forgiveness with the intention of the heart to turn from our wicked ways and not repeat them. We do not just denounce them, but walk away from them as well. In Christ, we can have our past sins cleansed of us and no future sin to look forward to if our intent is to cease from them. Being convicted from sin is not ‘of the devil,’ but rather having a guilty conscience is the Holy Spirit doing a work within us to point and guide us in the right direction.
Christ’s blood trumps animal’s blood because his blood purges sin right out of our lives so we can serve God rather than our flesh. We can walk in obedience by being righteous because we have the Holy Spirit.
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you won't fulfill the lust of the flesh. – Galatians 5:16
For if you live after the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. – Romans 8:13
The Holy Spirit
The purpose of the blood of Christ was to send the Holy Spirit to us.
Nevertheless I tell you the truth: It is to your advantage that I go away, for if I don't go away, the Counselor won't come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. – John 16:7
This is where the blood of Christ supersedes the blood of animals where it could not bring remission.
For what the law couldn't do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God did, sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh; that the ordinance of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. – Romans 8:3-4
‘Remission’ is not just about forgiveness and atonement. If it was, then Christ died in vain because it was already available under the old covenant Law.
I don't make void the grace of God. For if righteousness is through the law, then Christ died for nothing!" – Galatians 2:21
The blood sacrifices under the Law did not bring righteousness, the cessation of sin, or freedom (remission) from them. To say that they do, means that Christ died in vain. If you claim that the purpose of Christ’s death was to only to bring atonement and ‘forgiveness,’ then there was no purpose in his sacrifice if the same thing came by the Law through the blood sacrifice principle.
Yet, this is what Christians ultimately claim to believe through their false ‘imputed righteousness’ doctrine by replacing the blood of bulls and goats in the law with their own version of what Christ’s blood does for them. Their ‘righteousness’ they are offering is ‘imputed righteousness’ through ‘forgiveness’ and atonement that is the same ‘righteousness’ that came by the Law of blood sacrifice.
The only conclusion is that the ‘righteousness’ of Christianity comes by the Law because animal blood brings the same ‘righteousness’ that they offer. The Christ they believe in didn’t have to die and shed his blood because their atonement and ‘forgiveness’ is qualified through the blood of animals.
Most people prefer the notion of Christ dying once and for all for their sins in perpetuity past, present and future. It tickles the ears because sinning is guilt free. There is no need to repent of present and future sins because they are already supposedly covered by his blood.
Are we to ignore the words of Christ?
Remember therefore from where you have fallen, and repent and do the first works; or else I am coming to you swiftly, and will move your lampstand out of its place, unless you repent. – Revelation 2:5
If all sins are forgiven, including future ones as the result of Christ dying upon the stake, then it would be strange for the apostles to tell us to confess our sins to one another.
Confess your offenses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The insistent prayer of a righteous person is powerfully effective. – James 5:16
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. – 1 John 1:9
If Christ’s blood atoned for all sins past, present and future, then the only conclusion is that there is no such thing as sin anymore. If that is the case, then all mankind is already saved because Christ shed his blood for the world. We should know that this is false.
Remission brings Cessation
The blood of Christ provides atonement and forgiveness, but these in themselves do not save. These two things only reconcile man to God, but they do not bring salvation. They only thing that will save us is living a life in Christ being obedient to the Father by the Holy Spirit no longer captive to sin. This is the anointed life that saves, not only in forgiveness and atonement, but also walking in the remission (being set free) of sin.
For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we will be saved by his life. – Romans 5:10
Have you bought into the lie that Christ’s atoning blood brings you ‘freedom in Christ’ through ‘imputed righteousness’ while still remaining captive to your sin?
That is not being ‘saved by his life.’ The apostles did not even teach this type of nonsense.
Don't you know that to whom you present yourselves as servants to obedience, his servants you are whom you obey; whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness? – Romans 6:16
The remission that Christ brings is one of cessation from sin through the anointing power of the Holy Spirit. Remission from sin was brought through the blood of Christ because it brought the Holy Spirit. When the believer repents, by the power of the Spirit one is cleansed in the flesh from their past sins. The desire is to press forward to attain to the higher calling being no longer bound to sin.
Not that I have already obtained, or am already made perfect; but I press on, if it is so that I may take hold of that for which also I was taken hold of by Christ Jesus. Brothers, I don't regard myself as yet having taken hold, but one thing I do. Forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 3:12-14
The thing that Paul was referring to leave behind was sin. Most Christians who believe in the ‘imputed righteousness’ doctrine have not left sin and are not pressing forward towards perfection by walking in obedience. They are made hopeless in their declaration that they are ‘born sinners’ and will always be a sinner. All they can hope for is that they think they can take the righteousness of Christ and claim it for themselves. Having ‘imputed righteousness’ makes it impossible for someone to be truly sinless with genuine remission from the bondage of sin. It is an impossibility because of what they are taught under the banner of Christianity. They cannot leave sin behind and move towards perfection because they believe it is unattainable.
A Supposed Monopoly on the Blood of Christ
Promising them liberty, while they themselves are bondservants of corruption; for a man is brought into bondage by whoever overcomes him. – 2 Peter 2:19
This verse pretty much spells it out where false teachers are promising ‘remission’ while they still are living in sin. It’s an oxymoron, you can’t have liberty from sin while still in bondage to it. This is the bondage of the harlot church system that puts a monopoly on ‘the blood of Christ.’ It is by this ‘blood’ you are no longer seen a ‘sinner’ in God's eyes.
The Catholic Church states that unless you partake of the sacrament, you cannot receive the blood of Christ. It is through the 'Holy Eucharist' that the righteous of Christ is imputed to you. Without it, you are deemed a sinner under the Adamic curse. This is how the counterfeit church system controls people and puts them into bondage by twisting the purpose of the blood of Christ. Whether you are a Catholic or not, even most of the other religious denominations and sects preach the same thing that we are all 'born sinners' and will die a sinner in the end. They take the blood of Christ to be a supposed covering for sin where God no longer sees them as a sinner, but only sees the righteousness of Christ in them, even though they are not truly righteous and can never attain to be. Their doctrines do not encourage repentance and cessation of sin because any effort to stop sinning is deemed futile.
If we cannot attain to be sinless, then what is the point of putting any effort to stop sinning?
What would be the point of genuinely following Christ?
If you tell the church minion that you are putting forth some effort to no longer be a sinner, they will tell that your salvation is based on works and all your righteousness is ‘filthy rags.’ It’s time to stop ignoring these church folks because they have no heart intent to stop sinning because they believe it is impossible.
Without heart intent, the atonement sacrifice is rejected by God.
They love to say, ‘God knows my heart.”
Yeah, He does, but you can tell what is in their hearts also.
It is because they say they cannot stop sinning and will always be a sinner.’ They state openly the intent of their heart that they are going to continue to sin for the rest of their lives.
For each tree is known by its own fruit. For people don't gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings out that which is good, and the evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings out that which is evil, for out of the abundance of the heart, his mouth speaks. – Luke 6:44-45
"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves. By their fruits you will know them. Do you gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree produces good fruit; but the corrupt tree produces evil fruit. A good tree can't produce evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree produce good fruit. Every tree that doesn't grow good fruit is cut down, and thrown into the fire.
Therefore, by their fruits you will know them. Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will tell me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, didn't we prophesy in your name, in your name cast out demons, and in your name do many mighty works?' Then I will tell them, 'I never knew you. Depart from me, you who work iniquity.' – Matthew 7:15-23
It should only follow if you can’t stop sinning, then you will only bring forth evil fruit. You are an evil and corrupt tree according to Christ. If you can never be truly righteous because ‘all your righteousness is filthy rags,’ then you can never be a good tree bringing forth good fruit. The lie of Christianity is that they say they cannot stop sinning. They ultimately believe that Christ died so that that can continue to sin while having ‘forgiveness’ from their past, present and future sins in perpetuity. This is their beloved ‘license to sin’ doctrine that they will deny to your face, but obviously live it out in their lives.
There is no such thing as ‘without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness’ because this was not what the author of Hebrews intended it to mean.
Atonement Offering (Yom Kippur)
The indoctrinated Christian will say that Christ shed his blood to bring ‘atonement,’ just as the slaughtering of goats and bulls did. They cast Christ into the role of an animal who was born to be slaughtered to take away the guilt of their sins. In this way, they can live their lives guilt free.
In actual fact, Christ played a completely different role to the goat and the bull. His role is of a High Priest who sprinkles blood for atonement.
But into the second the high priest alone, once in the year, not without blood, which he offers for himself, and for the errors of the people. The Holy Spirit is indicating this, that the way into the Holy Place wasn't yet revealed while the first tabernacle was still standing; which is a symbol of the present age, where gifts and sacrifices are offered that are incapable, concerning the conscience, of making the worshipper perfect; being only (with meats and drinks and various washings)...
...fleshly ordinances, imposed until a time of reformation. But Christ having come as a high priest of the coming good things, through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation, nor yet through the blood of goats and calves, but through his own blood, entered in once for all into the Holy Place, having obtained eternal redemption. – Hebrew 9:7-12
The Day of Atonement is the figure of Christ’s sacrifice, not in the role of an animal to be slaughtered, but in the role of High Priest. A priest’s role cannot be the priest in the ordinance of sacrifice and be the bull or goat at the same time. Christ who is our High Priest has replaced the blood of bulls and goats with his own blood.
As the evidence has been clearly shown, the blood of the lamb, the Passover lamb is not the bulls and goats of atonement. This is why Scripture states that it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sin and why the new covenant is much better than the old because we have better promises through Christ.
But now he has obtained a more excellent ministry, by so much as he is also the mediator of a better covenant, which on better promises has been given as law. – Hebrews 8:6
By so much, Jesus has become the collateral of a better covenant. – Hebrews 7:22
Christ is not the animal or beast in the Day of Atonement. His blood does not stand for the blood of bulls and goats and his death is not equated to them either. Rather, Christ is the High Priest who enters the holy holies who instead of sprinkling the blood of bulls and goats sprinkles his own.
What Christianity does is put Christ in the role of a bull or goat to be slaughtered for their atonement.
What many don’t understand is that Christ died and rose again for something much more than just forgiveness and atonement. He willingly died upon the stake so that he could receive power from his Father in heaven to send the Holy Spirit that can make us into children of God. Christ’s blood is not for a token atonement. However, the harlot church system has perverted the purpose of Christ’s blood and has eradicated its true meaning to be likened to the slaughter of a beast.
The lie and the offense should be clear. The religious masses have cast the role of Christ as synonymous with animal sacrifice rather than his role as High Priest who makes the sacrifice. He cannot be our High Priest if our sins our placed upon him and he became sin for us. As has already been shown, the sacrifice had to be without spot or blemish.
How can Christ be made both sin for us and also at the same time be without spot or blemish?
How can he take our sins upon himself and at the same time die as a spotless sacrifice?
Think about it.
If our sin was supposedly imputed to Christ in the same way his righteousness is supposedly imputed to us, then how is it possible for Christ to dies as a ‘Lamb without spot or blemish’ being that our sins were supposedly imputed unto him when he died?
The Sin Offering
Christ is the allegorical High Priest offering atonement and being the Passover Lamb, but there is one more. It is in the sin offering that is different from the Passover and the day of atonement.
And the priest shall make an atonement for all the congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them; for it is ignorance: and they shall bring their offering, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD, and their sin offering before the LORD, for their ignorance: - Numbers 15:25
This blood sacrifice is the only case where blood sacrifice was required to obtain forgiveness. However, the people could not ask for forgiveness for sins they were ignorant of. It would be impossible to repent and ask for forgiveness unless they knew that they were sinning.
When we move to the New Testament, we can see this same forgiveness given to the Gentiles who were ignorant of the law. Under the new covenant, Christ was their ‘sin offering.’ In their ignorance, they could be atoned and forgiven through him.
Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they don't know what they are doing. – Luke 23:34
The sin offering provided forgiveness to those who do not know what they do being ignorant of their behaviours.
If someone doesn’t know they are sinning, can it be called sin?
Why would someone who doesn’t know the Law need forgiveness?
For until the law, sin was in the world; but sin is not charged when there is no law. – Romans 5:13
Ignorance of the Law was no excuse for the Israelite because it was their responsibility to know the law.
Today, Christians make Christ their ‘sin offering’ for their ignorance of their supposed ignorance of unknown sins.
Under the new covenant, the blood of Christ brings the Holy Spirit that is to lead and guide us into all truth. The Holy Spirit writes God’s laws in our hearts and minds; therefore, you cannot claim to have no responsibility for being ignorant of sin while claiming to follow Christ.
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel. After those days," says the Lord; "I will put my laws into their mind, I will also write them on their heart. I will be their God, and they will be my people. – Hebrews 8:10
Under the new covenant there is no excuse. The sin offering of the Old Testament applied to the Gentiles who came to God who were ignorant of His laws. Under the new covenant, the sin offering through Christ is for the whole world because they are ignorant of God’s laws also. The sin offering is not for the believer at all because they should have the Holy Spirit who teaches them how to be righteous.
You have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all have knowledge. I have not written to you because you don't know the truth, but because you know it, and because no lie is of the truth. – 1 John 2:20-21
As for you, the anointing which you received from him remains in you, and you don't need for anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as it taught you, you will remain in him. – 1 John 2:27
If you know that he is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of him. – 1 John 2:29
If we have the Holy Spirit, we don’t do righteousness by the law, but by walking in the same faith that Christ walked in. In this we have his love perfected in us.
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God, and knows God. -1 John 4:7
No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God remains in us, and his love has been perfected in us. By this we know that we remain in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. – 1 John 4:12-13
Someone who has the blood of Christ does not need a sin offering for unknown sins, yet most Christians play the ignorance card in their ‘license to sin’ doctrines.
Whether it is the Passover lamb, the atonement sacrifice (Yom Kippur) or the sin offering, there is no place where the animal takes the place of the sinner or the animal takes upon itself the sins of the one offering the sacrifice. The one offering the sacrifice on the day of atonement was the priest who already performed an atonement and cleansing ritual for his own personal sins and family prior to the atonement sacrifice for the people of Israel. This means that it would be impossible for the animal being sacrificed to take on the sins of the one offering it because the one offering already was cleansed from their sins.
In this light, how could Christ stand before God as the High Priest and sprinkle his own blood upon the altar if his blood had all the sins of the world upon it at the same time. Only pure and sinless blood without blemish would be accepted on the altar of God, including the High Priest who had to be purified of all sin.
So, are Christians lying when they say that Christ took upon himself all their sins and paid the penalty for them in all perpetuity?
Is the Christianity claim true that Christ took the upon himself all the sins of the world and then entered the holy of holies as a spotless lamb?
It seems to be the case in Christendom.
We must remember based on the testament of Scripture that animal sacrifices under the law did not pay the penalty for sins, it only brought cleansing (atonement). The penalty was that the animal died. The people had to give up something of value, meaning that the animal did not pay the penalty for them, but they paid the penalty with and by the animal.
There is nothing in the law that states the Passover lamb took on the sins for the people and paid the penalty for them. Neither does the atonement sacrifices qualify as taking on the sins of the people and paying the penalty from them, nor does the sin offering.
The idea of making something or someone else die in your place as a 'human sacrifice' on an altar is a pagan concept. God is not into human sacrifices and has never demanded such a thing.
It is true that Christ was a ‘sacrifice’ for us, but it is the same context of someone running into a burning building giving his life to save your life to set you free from the fire. The human sacrifice aspect of Christ’s blood within the harlot church system reveals their demonic origins and influences.
The purpose of Christ's blood was to set the captives free from their sin by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Are you going to continue believe in the lie of ‘remission?'
The Beast Religion
The lie of the harlot church system is that Christ gave himself freely of his own will for our sin. The deception is that they put Christ in the place of a beast and that is what their view of the sacrificial system was all about. However, the truth is that the animal did not give itself freely for our sins, but was slaughtered against its own free will. The indoctrinated will claim that Christ was a 'human sacrifice' out of his own free will.
Again, a second time he went away, and prayed, saying, "My Father, if this cup can't pass away from me unless I drink it, your desire be done." – John 26:42
‘Your desire be done’ is not Christ’s will, but the Father’s will.
Nowhere in Scripture will you find where sin was placed on a goat and was sacrificed. It was only a scapegoat where sin was placed upon it, but it was not sacrificed. It was set free as an outcast into the wilderness.
The error of Christianity is that they must claim Christ as an allegory of a goat, not of the Passover lamb. They make him a scapegoat for their sins.
Christ is the ‘Lamb’ and nowhere do we find in Scripture where sins are placed on the Passover Lamb.
Many have made Christ purpose out to be that of a mere beast, a sacrificial goat or a 'human sacrifice.' God doesn’t demand 'human sacrifice.' It is pagan religions that do.
It’s time to wake up.
Christ is our Passover Lamb who takes away the sins of the world. The blood of bulls and goats (atonement) did not take sins away and that is why the sacrifice was repeated over and over again each year. The blood of the Passover lamb purpose was to set the captives free in the same way Christ’s blood sets the captives free from their sins. Christ’s blood is greater because it not only atones, but also brings the Holy Spirit.
By walking in the Spirit, we will no longer fulfill the lusts of the flesh. The Holy Spirit can literally take your sins away. Think about it, if you are free from sin there is no need for atonement. Atonement is only for the enemies of God.
For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we will be saved by his life. – Hebrews 5:10
Based on what doctrine you believe, you may still be the enemy of God because you make Christ out to be your sacrificial goat.
Has it sunk in yet?
Christ did not bring atonement by becoming a sacrificial goat for you. Christ brought atonement by being a High Priest for us by entering into the holy of holies and sprinkling his own blood for us. The High Priest is the atonement, not the animal. Our High Priest replaced the blood of animals with his own.
If you have made Christ out to be your sacrificial beast, then the only conclusion is that you partake of an antichrist religion. You have turned Christ into a beast for your atonement instead of him being your High Priest.
The purpose of Christ’s blood is to set you free from your sins. He did not suffer the death and penalty of those sins past, present and future in perpetuity. His blood sent the Holy Spirit so you can receive it and be free.
What you believe the purpose of Christ's blood is for is of utmost importance.
I heard another voice from heaven, saying, "Come out of her, my people, that you have no participation in her sins, and that you don't receive of her plagues – Revelation 18:4
Has your view of the purpose of Christ's blood changed?
- The Deception of the Doctrine of Imputed Righteousness and its Consequences
Unfortunately, many have bought into the false doctrine of imputed righteousness. How they see imputation is not taught, or consistent with the full counsel of Scripture.
- The License to Sin Doctrine
There is a deception that is in the institutional church system that believes Christ’s blood has covered all the believers sins from the past, present and the future.
