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 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.
1 Corinthians 5:7 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.
Ephesians 5:2 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.
