“Extra! Extra! Read All About It!”

“David’s sin is written in Holy Writ, right there in I Kings 15:5 (and in other Scriptures) when he had Uriah killed so that he could take his wife Bathsheba, which means that the verse will abide as an integral part of the Word of God which liveth and abideth forever (John 1:1, I Peter 1:23). However, our sins are gone forever, washed completely away and therefore they cannot live and abide forever but are eternally gone ― from us! This is part of the mystery of godliness- I Timothy 3:16, afforded to us through Christ’s perfecting work for us (Colossians 1:28), and his cleansing work in us (I John 1:7).

Do yourself a favor, try and read all about your sins in the New Testament (as we were able to read David’s in the Old Testament) and you will find that you as a sinner are completely absent, dead to sin (a few examples: Romans 6:11, I Corinthians 15:3, and II Corinthians 5:14-15), but as a redeemed saint and child of God you will find yourself on every page alive in Christ (a few examples: Romans 6:11-14, and Colossians 3:3-4). You will discover this especially when you read along in and with Christ who is your guide and Golden Thread who leads you to absolute enlightenment, For now we live {enjoy the more abundant life}, if {since} ye stand fast in the Lord- I Thessalonians 3:11. As David was able to receive forgiveness and did amazing exploits for God, we are also even more enabled (Philippians 4:13)! Our sins are completely cleansed and will never be remembered or read about and thankfully only the good that we do by believing the Word will be known to us along with every being in heaven as our believing shall provide our heavenly rewards!” ~LMJ~

What He Actually Did for “Our Sins” (What Did I Get out of It? Five Sonship Rights for Living Large!)

For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s- I Corinthians 6:20. Many Christians probably could not count how often they have heard the phrase ’Jesus died for our sins,’ as the price for our salvation. However, there is so much more to this than we know with a cursory reading of our Bibles. I can read about five specific things that Jesus did for our sins. 1) Jesus gave himself for our sins, 2) he bore our sins, 3) he was the propitiation (or the payment) for our sins, 4) he died for our sins, and 5) he purged us of our sins. In Christian literature, these biblical phrases have been run together for so many centuries that the uniqueness and the significance of each of them have never been thoroughly uncovered. Without knowing the difference between these five statements, they all, if truth were told, only reveal to us platitudes of vagueness, when what Jesus did for us is so astonishing. If we ferret out these phrases and individually examine the true spiritual significance of each one separately, then we will begin to clearly see the purpose behind the work of Jesus Christ to give men and women their God-given rights of 1) sanctification, 2) redemption, 3) righteousness, 4) reconciliation, and 5) justification.

You See:

Jesus Christ: gave himself for our sins (Galatians 1:4), so we then* would be sanctified (Hebrews 10:10).

Jesus Christ: on the cross bore our sins (I Peter 2:24, Colossians 2:14), so we then* would be redeemed (Galatians 3:13).

Jesus Christ: was the propitiation for our sins (I John 4:10), so we then* would be righteous (Romans 3:25–26, Romans 5:19).

Jesus Christ: died for our sins (I Corinthians 15:3), so we then* would be reconciled (Romans 5:10–11).

Christ Jesus: was raised up from among the dead, to purge us of our sins (I Corinthians 15:17), so we then* would be justified (Romans 4:25).

*Then at those moments in time – so we would be free from our sins from now till forever, so that we could live sinless in eternity with our Savior clothed with those five large heavenly rights, paid for with the perfect price, from Jesus’ perfect work, and for you and me the perfect prize was earned!” ~LMJ~

The Right to Our Reconciliation

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

Reconciliation means to reunite two parties, and from God’s Word we find our reconciliation to be a right that Jesus Christ had made available. This brings us into a right relationship with God Who originally formed, made, and created men to walk with Him in peace of mind and heart.

I Corinthians 15:3 – For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

How did Christ die for our sins? He first offered himself for our sins, then he bore our sins through a humiliating torture, culminating with him being nailed to a tree. Jesus’ sinless life became for us the complete and total payment for our sins, and when the payment was fully met – he died for our sins. When he died – our sins died with him, and the significance of Christ dying upon the cross was to present humanity again with a way back to God. We were totally separated from having the true love and nature of God ever since man’s fall in Genesis, but since Christ made sanctification, redemption, and righteousness available to us, these are now eternally our legal sonship rights – and we have access to the love and nature of God – having been reconciled.

I Corinthians 1:30 – But of him {God} are ye in Christ Jesus, who of {for} God is made unto us wisdom {to understand our God-given rights}, and righteousness {because Jesus was the propitiation for our sins}, and sanctification {because Jesus bore our sins}, and redemption {because Jesus gave himself for our sins}:

Since Jesus Christ has done all this in the above verse for us, we now permanently have heavenly rights to the complete and eternal reconciliation between God and man.

Romans 5:10-11:
-10:  For if, when we were enemies {before our salvation, this is the nature of man when he is separated from God}, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being {now} reconciled, we shall be saved by his {Jesus’} life.
-11:  And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement {the reconciliation}.

The experience of true joy in our God was and still is through the accomplishments of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Jesus made available to us the joys of having unity and being at peace with our God because we have the spiritual right to our very own reconciliation, for Jesus gave – paying the ultimate price on that cross – giving his life for sin, for all, for eternity!

Colossians 1:20-22:
-20:  And, having made peace {between you and God} through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
-21:  And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
-22:  In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his {God’s} sight:
