    1 Sam.20: 1 And David fled from Naioth in Ramah, and came and said before Jonathan, What have I done? what is mine iniquity? and what is my sin before thy father, that he seeketh my life?

    2 And he said unto him, God forbid; thou shalt not die: behold, my father will do nothing either great or small, but that he will shew it me: and why should my father hide this thing from me? it is not so.

    Stop calling Jesus a Sinner – Part 5

    Jesus Christ Crucifixion on Good Friday Silhouette

    Gal.3: 13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

    Here it is said, Christ hath redeemed us- ( exhgorasen).meaning he had bought us with a price; i.e his blood, or life, by being made a curse for us.

    Made a curse; treated as accursed, in suffering for our sake the accursed death of the cross. Deut. 21:23; 2Co 5:21.

    In other words, he was being made as atonement for our sins. This is so because that which was offered as atonement for sin was considered as bearing the punishment due to sin.

    And the person who suffered for transgression was considered as bearing the curse in his body; and such a victim in was taken down from the cross the same day he was executed and buried out of sight to prevent the pollution of the land. The reason being that he that was hanged, was considered accursed of God, which was the case for every of such victim of such crime (Deut.21:22,23). This was responsible for Jesus ‘body being removed same day from the cross.

    John 1: 29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

    “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him”. 2 Cor.5: 21.

     

    Jesus Christ Crucifixion on Good Friday SilhouetteLooking at the above scriptures, we can see that Jesus as a sin offering was offered by God himself. John referred to him as the Lamb of God. Meaning just like everyone was to offer his sin offering for the purpose of sacrifice, even so God by himself has offered for mankind a Lamb suitable for a sin offering to take the place of whatever man will attempt to have offered or will want to offer. This is the only acceptable sin offering to God. So just like he provided a sin offering for Cain, and even a ram for Abraham to be offered in place of Isaac, even so has he provided this sinless Lamb for the sins of humanity. This is what we are seeing here. It is the Lamb of God, God’s own personal Lamb, that is Jesus.

     

    Further we are told. He was offered to take away the sin of the world. It’s a singular sin. So we are talking about the very act resulting from the fall of Adam in the Garden. Therefore Paul in Romans said.

     

    “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned…..

    For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.

    Stop calling Jesus a Sinner – Part 3

    Math. 27: 3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

    4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, what is that to us? see thou to that”.

     

    The above scripture is the confession and testimony of Judas Iscariot after he has betrayed Jesus. Now do you know the strength of the statement he just made when he said, I have betrayed THE INNOCENT BLOOD? He didn’t say ‘an’ innocent blood but THE ..

    It is from the word = athoos, ath’-o-os in the Greek, Meaning “not guilty:–innocent” and it is taken from the root word (. a ) a, al’-fah of Hebrew origin; the first letter of the alphabet; figuratively, the first: –Alpha. And that speaks of the very first blood Adam had before the fall. The original blood that is without corruption, sin.. It’s completely free of sin and any such thing that is associated with sin.

     

    The innocent Blood is the ‘apha’ blood, the very first and original blood. Yes, Jesus had no sin in his blood system while he walked the earth. He was completely innocent. Therefore he was not a sinner not even on the cross.

     

    But God “made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him”. 2 Cor.5: 21.

    Stop calling Jesus a Sinner Part 2

    Again like I stated in part 1 of this discuss, I have heard people in various none Christian groups say, one of the major reasons Jesus has to die the way he did was because he was paying for the sins of his previous life. In other words they were buttressing their belief of reincarnation. But we know that Jesus only incarnated but never reincarnated.

     

    So when you begin to teach that the sins of the world was laid on him even on the cross, you are also saying he died the death of a sinner because of sin and that also means he was a sinner. And that is very dangerous a doctrine concerning our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Here is an illustration. Barabbas was a murderer and seditionist, who were to be crucified according to the law of the Jews/Romans, but Jesus took his place and he was released. Does that mean Jesus actually committed the very crime of being a murderer? The answer says no! But he took the punishment due the crime of Barabbas which was death. Barabbas then was a type of humanity so that we could be free from the penalty of death.

     

    Here is what the word says about this fact in Heb. 2:9

    “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man”. (KJV)

    The Church has indirectly agreed with the world by teaching that Jesus was a sinner. There are sayings that Jesus died for his own sins, therefore he cannot save you. That when Jesus said ‘take up your cross and follow me’ he meant to say I am dying for my sins, so you also get ready to die for your own sins, that is what is meant by work out your own salvation, which they also interpret to mean the interplay of the law of karma.

    While the Church may not say this openly, they teach same thing when they say that our sins were laid on him, making him a sinner and so he was so ugly that we could not behold him and even God could not look upon his son because of the sins of the world that was laid on him, and that is why he shouted my God, my God why have thou forsaken me

     

    But essentially the Bible never for once mentioned that our sins were laid on him. This is what it says..

    The Book of Revelation – Part 13

    Rev.14: 1 “ And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads…

    “These are they which follow the lamb withersoever He goeth. These were redeemed from among men, BEING THE FIRST FRUITS UNTO GOD AND TO THE LAMB” vesre :4.

    We appreciate the father of glory for granting to some us of now the privilege to be aware of His glorious light, love and His plans for the ages. That through the indwelling light of life in them (Jn. 1:4, 9) they must follow Him withersoever He goeth. And of course, this is a realm where there is no choice of ours, anymore. By choice here I do not mean what men call ‘free will’ for of a truth there is no free will or man being a ‘free moral agent’ for he who is a free moral agent will choose not to be a slave to the devil – sin (Rom. 6:16, Eph. 2:2, 4:17-19). For I see men to be either a slave to the devil or a slave to God. In fact Jesus said,

    “ The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.” (John.3:8)

    If Jesus where to have had a choice, he would not have gone to the cross, he ended up saying, they will not mine be done. He lost his wll for and in the purpose of the Father.

    Rev.14: 1 “ And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads….. 4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb

    SPIRITUAL DEFILEMENT

    In the old Testament, marital infidelity is spoken of metaphorically as idolatry (Hos. 1:2+). And when God was describing Israel’s defilement in this regard, He said “…How dare you say ‘I am not defiled, I have not run after the Baals?’. Look at your footprints in the valley (the valley of Gehenna to the South of Jerusalem where Children were sacrificed to the god Topheth. Jer. 7:31 and Lev. 18:21+) and acknowledge what you have done. A frantic she-camel running in all directions bolts for the desert sniffing the breeze in desire; who can control her when she is on heat? Whoever looks for her will have no trouble; he will find her with her mate. Beware! Your own foot may soon go unshod, your own throat may grow dry. But ‘who cares?’ you said, for I am in love with STRANGERS and they are the ones I FOLLOW” (Jer. 2:23-25) JB.

    The Book or Revelation – Part 11

    Rev.14: 1 “ And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads….. 4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb”

    The definition of the 144,000 is clear from this verse, they are the people redeemed from among men, not just the twelve tribes of Israel. Besides, it says there are virgins. Are we imagining that this should be talking about literal virgins in Israel like Marry was? So are they just women or they are men as well. You see, beloved, these are spiritual languages, nothing to do with literal men or women living or walking in the street of Jerusalem.
