L O Y A
The body of the Son of man, that has been given for us as bread, to may have eternal life.
The blood of the Son of man, which is shed for many as wine, for the remission of sins.
With this the Son of man has opened the door to God the Father for everybody! For at once, after His death, the veil of the temple, that separated the Holy of Holies from the Holy Place, was torn (Matthew 27:51). For only the High Priest was allowed to enter just once a year the Holy of Holies.
The veil, that separated and was
torn, was as the power of the sin.
The power of the sin, which blocked us; but was broken by the Cross Sacrifice Blood of Yashua the Son of man.
Behold!, the Light on the cross, that ousts the darkness (with its sins).
[The cross as symbol of the curse]
In Le 6: 1-7
this case is dealed at length, especially property offences.
These are a debt towards the injured party. The wrongdoer must
entirely compensate the stolen and besides pay 20% damages.
As robbery also is debt towards the Lord, he must also give an extra ram as tresspass offering. Before all this the wrongdoer must confess his sins.
things must be done [in fact even 4]:
1. The wrongdoer first must confess his sins
2. The wrongdoer must entirely compensate the stolen and besides pay 20% damages
3. The wrongdoer must reconcile himself with God, by giving a tresspass offering
4. The wrongdoer actually will also possible have to be imprisoned
1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 If a soul sins, and acts unfaithfully against the LORD, and lies to his neighbor as to a deposit-- or as to security, or by robbery, or has extorted his neighbor, 3 or has found that which was lost and lies concerning it and swears falsely-- in any of all these that a man does, sinning in it, 4 then, it shall be, because he sinned and is guilty, he shall pay back that which he got by robbery; or if he robbed the thing extorted; or the deposit which had been deposited with him; or the lost thing which he had found; 5 or all that which he swore about falsely, --he shall even repay it in its principal, and the fifth part he shall add to it, to whomever it belongs. He shall give it on the day of his guilt offering. 6 And he shall bring his trespass offering to the LORD, a ram without blemish out of the flock, together with an amount set by you, for a trespass offering, to the priest. 7 And the priest shall make an atonement for him before the LORD, and it shall be forgiven him for anything of all that he has done by being guilty in it.
But now, by
the Great Sacrifice of the Messiah Yashua, we do not have to bring animals as
offerings anymore for the Lord. That is the spiritual meaning of
the cross death of Yashua the Redeemer. Therefore, if we,
just like the tax-collector in Luke 18: 10-14, confess our
sins and pray for remission [and that includes, that we show
regret and that we promise not to do it anymore], the grace of
the Lord comes down upon us and so we become justified.
But ofcourse, we will socially have to do penance, for example to serve our sentence in jail.
And however a respectably life we may have as the pharisee in Luke 18: 10-14, though we should mind. For what was actually wrong with him? After all, he did more than the law ask him to do and it is good to thank the lord. Sure, but he did not do all he can through the love for God and Law, but for his own honour, so that he can look his nose down at others. As shows the unnecesarry comparisons he makes with others. Also he didn't really pray, for he didn't ask for nothing.
didn't give a decent thanks, for he didn't bring a sacrifice for
As it were, he bought off all by himself with his respectable life.
Therefore Yashua the Wonderfull Counselor says in Luke 17:
7 But which
of you who has a servant plowing or feeding will say to him
immediately after he has come from the field, Come, recline?
8 Will he not say to him, Prepare something so that I may eat, and gird yourself and serve me until I eat and drink. And afterward you shall eat and drink.
9 Does he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I think not.
10 So likewise you, when you shall have done all the things commanded you, say,
We are unprofitable servants, for we have done what we ought to do.
please for the sake of clarity.
'Stand fast therefore in the liberty with which Christ has made us free, and do not again be held with the yoke of bondage' (Ga 5:1).
That is, hold on Yashua the Redeemer. Hold on His doctrine of THE GREATEST SACRIFICE OF ALL TIMES.
If we don't do that, we fall into the old offerings again. Than we let ourself be held with a yoke of bondage again, a yoke of bondage ....
