The Blood Atonement of our Lord Jesus Christ is under attack. There is a growing group among the church proclaiming that Christ went to the Cross in vain and that God would not have demanded a blood sacrifice. They would say that we are saved from our Lord's perfect moral life and not from His death, burial and resurrection.
The first 5 studies are dated Dec. 2019 under the category of "ATONEMENT" if you would like to read them. This is my sixth post on the blood atonement of our Lord Jesus Christ. In the first 5 studies we looked at the blood bringing about...
1st the ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL;
2nd the ATONEMENT FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS;
3rd ATONEMENT FOR LIFE AND PEACE;
4th ATONEMENT FOR REDEMPTION.
The 5th thing concerning the blood of Jesus is JUSTIFICATION.
Romans 5:1 ESV Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
The blood of our Lord Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price so that we could stand guiltless and holy before our Father.
Hebrews 4:16 ESV Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Our Lord Jesus Christ, through His atoning blood, took my sin, my condemnation, my punishment, and my guilt upon Himself. In doing so He placed His robe of righteousness on me.
2 Corinthians 5:21 ESV For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Justification is "just as though I had not sinned." He sat in my place of sin and death to pay for my sins so that I could sit in His place of righteousness and life with the Father in heavenly places.
