Jesus as an Offering

The Lord God almighty Himself (Jesus Christ) gave His life as a propitiation so God the Father would in return forgive the whole world of our sins and then He sat down at the right hand of God the Father. He was sinless but God accepted His life for the sins of all those who believed in Him so the believers could become righteous and be deemed holy in order to be able to enter the kingdom of God.

 

Jesus as an Offering

1 John 2:1-2      My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.

 

1 John 4:10   10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

High Priest offered Himself

Hebrews 10:12    12 But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God,

 

Lamb of God

John 1:29    29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

 

Revelation 5:6    And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns (representing power)  and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits (symbolically it is the Holy Spirit) of God sent out into all the earth.

 

Offering for our sin

2 Corinthians 5:21    21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

 

Passover Lamb

1 Corinthians 5:7    Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us.

 

Sacrifice

Ephesians 5:2    And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.

 

When John saw Jesus coming toward him, he called out “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” Jesus was our offering for our sins, our Passover Lamb. Now we walk in love as Jesus has also loved us and given Himself as a sacrifice to God for all the world’s sinners who believe in Him.

 

Please remember that if we have any hope in our Lord and Savior who gave us “everything” we must be continually faithful to the Lord, first. For God loved us first, even before He created us.

Lamentations 3:22, 23    22 Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.

Psalm 33:18, 19    18   Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy, 19  To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the promises of God’s blessings in His time.

 

  Prayer:   Father in heaven, I praise You for Your Son and the Holy Spirit. I praise You for your grace in sending us your wisdom about “Jesus as an offering.”  Please bless those who have read this article for they too are seeking Your righteous truth, love, wisdom and understanding.

May God, Jesus, The Holy Spirit and Christianity be our guiding lights, our safety nets and our inspiration for loving happiness in all of Your kingdom. Father into your hands I commend my spirit. Not my will, but Yours be done. Please come Lord Jesus.

I pray in Jesus sweet name and to His glory through the power of the Holy Spirit,

Amen.

  1. Having lots of present Bible translations not having any more the Name of God where it stood but printing as replacement Lord, even not any more with the Big Capitals LORD for The God and small capitals Lord for Jesus Christ, it has become very difficult for readers to know about whom is spoken: The Lord of the Lord of lords (Jehovah) or simply the Lord of lords (Jesus) or a Lord (any lord).

    You write “Lord God is used it usually means Jesus” but I can not agree with that. When there is written “Lord God” is really means “God” and not “Jesus” or not “son of God”

    As you say ” You just have to read the whole paragraph to see who the author is speaking about.” So that is what I only can hope you will do that and that you also would remember that God is not a God of lies but a God of order and of Clarity Who never tells lies. As such when God says “This is my only begotten son of God” than we should believe the person God is speaking about is His son and should not think it is Him, God Himself.

    The Bible, which we consider to be the infallible Word of God also tells us that Jesus did not sin, which means that he would not have lied as well. As such we should also believe Jesus when he talks about himself and about his heavenly Father.

    Nowhere in the Bible is said that Jesus is God or the god son. Everywhere in the Bible is clearly spoken about two different identities. One Who is a Spirit without bones and flesh Who is eternal and as such has no beginning (no birth) and no end (not able to die). On the other hand is a man of flesh and blood who can be tempted (though God cannot be tempted), has lots of reason to fear man (though man can do nothing to God) was really bullied, tortured and put to death (God cannot die) and was taken out of the dead (having spend three days in hell = what would God have to look there?) and was made higher than angels (though God is, was and always shall be the Most High) to come to sit next to God (notice = not on god His throne but at the site of God) to be a mediator between God and man. If Jesus is God he can not mediate between himself and some one else, than he talks straight to them and decides directly for them.

    Please do take into account following Bible sayings:

    “And I have seen, and have borne witness that this is the Son of God.” (John 1:34 ASV)

    “30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God. 31 And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Most High: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 and he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. 34 And Mary said unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? 35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Most High shall overshadow thee: wherefore also the holy thing which is begotten shall be called the Son of God.” (Luke 1:30-35 ASV)

    “21 Now it came to pass, when all the people were baptized, that, Jesus also having been baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, 22 and the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily form, as a dove, upon him, and a voice came out of heaven, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. 23 And Jesus himself, when he began [to teach], was about thirty years of age, being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph, the [son] of Heli,” (Luke 3:21-23 ASV)

    “3 So we also, when we were children, were held in bondage under the rudiments of the world: 4 but when the fulness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 that he might redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. 6 And because ye are sons, God sent forth the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 7 So that thou art no longer a bondservant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.” (Galatians 4:3-7 ASV)

    “5 For there is one God, one mediator also between God and men, [himself] man, Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself a ransom for all; the testimony [to be borne] in its own times;” (1 Timothy 2:5-6 ASV)

    “say ye of him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am [the] Son of God?” (John 10:36 ASV)

    “And the Father that sent me, he hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his form.” (John 5:37 ASV)

    “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6 ASV)

    “Ye heard how I said to you, I go away, and I come unto you. If ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced, because I go unto the Father: for the Father is greater than I.” (John 14:28 ASV)

    “Verily, verily, I say unto you, A servant is not greater than his lord; neither one that is sent greater than he that sent him.” (John 13:16 ASV)

    “Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I came forth and am come from God; for neither have I come of myself, but he sent me.” (John 8:42 ASV)

    “Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner.” (John 5:19 ASV)

    “41 And he was parted from them about a stone’s cast; and he kneeled down and prayed, 42 saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.” (Luke 22:41-42 ASV)

    “16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jonah: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 16:16-17 ASV)

    “And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” (Mark 15:34 ASV)

    “1 ¶ These things spake Jesus; and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that the son may glorify thee: 2 even as thou gavest him authority over all flesh, that to all whom thou hast given him, he should give eternal life. 3 And this is life eternal, that they should know thee the only true God, and him whom thou didst send, [even] Jesus Christ.” (John 17:1-3 ASV)

    “whom God raised up, having loosed the pangs of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.” (Acts 2:24 ASV)

    “Jesus saith to her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended unto the Father: but go unto my brethren, and say to them, I ascend unto my Father and your Father, and my God and your God.” (John 20:17 ASV)

    “Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to his great mercy begat us again unto a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” (1 Peter 1:3 ASV)

    “yet to us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we unto him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we through him.” (1 Corinthians 8:6 ASV)

    “But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.” (1 Corinthians 11:3 ASV)

    “He saith unto them, My cup indeed ye shall drink: but to sit on my right hand, and on [my] left hand, is not mine to give; but [it is for them] for whom it hath been prepared of my Father.” (Matthew 20:23 ASV)

    “5 Have this mind in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 who, existing in the form of God, counted not the being on an equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men;” (Philippians 2:5-7 ASV)

    “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:24 ASV)

    “Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God abideth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:15 ASV)

    We should believe in Jesus to be the send one from God, him to be the promised Messiah or Kristos (Christ), having given himself as a ransom for our sins and the Only One True God, the God of Abraham having accepted this ransom offer for our liberation of the curse of death.

      1. I’ll use the “search” in your blog but want to let you know that I used many years to study the Bible. From the 50ies of the previous century I encountered many questions but after some time I also got many answers. I also came convinced that the answers from the Bible were the best answers and that I can see many human teachings are not in accordance with what is written in the Bible. And that disturbs me. I also think it is more important to keep to Biblical sayings than to human sayings.

  2. You write “The Lord God almighty Himself gave His life so God the Father would in return forgive us of our sins forever and then sat down at the right hand of God the Father. ” but it was not God Himself Who gave His life. It was the son of God who gave his life. This send one from God managed to fulfil God’s Will, after he had put aside his own will, and gave himself as a ransom offering for mankind to God, his heavenly Father.

    First having been lower than angels, he was made higher, though God still stays the Most High, (like God was is and shall always be forever). Accepting Jesus his offer God took him out of the dead, after having spend three days in hell, and allowed Jesus to sit next to Him. As you rightly write ” and then sat down at the right hand of God the Father”, so I hope you understand he did not come to sit on God’s Seat but next to God. (Because it looks like you take Jesus to be God instead of believing what God tells about His only begotten son.)

    1. You are right Marcus. I have made some changes to attempt to clarify things. It was Jesus the Son of God who gave His life so God in turn could forget about the sins of all mankind who believe in Jesus. Now if you think of the Trinity, God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are all one but operate as individual entities. They are also sometimes referred to as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. When the Word Lord or Lord God is used it usually means Jesus. I also recognize that God the Father in the Old Testament is sometimes spoken of as the Lord or Lord God. You just have to read the whole paragraph to see who the author is speaking about. Sometimes the commentary will give you a hint about who is speaking or being spoken about.
      I hope the new writing clarifies things. Thanks for your input. May God bless you.
