Heb 10:1For the law having a shadow of good
things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with
those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers
thereunto perfect. 2For
then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers
once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. 3But in those sacrifices
there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. 4For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of
goats should take away sins.

and sisters, God is continually absolutely declaring that the Levitical Law was
just a poor shadow of the glorious salvation that He would later unleash upon
the world at the coming of Jesus Christ, His appointed sinless Messiah,
Saviour, and Mediator of the eternal superior new covenant.
God reasons with us in the sense of hey, look, I made the numerous sacrifices
of the Law to be totally ineffectual in ever cleansing anyone from sins. If these
sacrifices really had any power to cleanse sinners from their sins I would have been done it with the first animal
sacrifice under the Law. The continual offering of them therefore, is proof
positive of their ineffectiveness.
Heb 10:5Wherefore when he cometh into the
world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou

for sin thou hast had no pleasure.

people, God knows the thick headedness of His creations making it a necessity
to speak with swift, final and concise explicitness: GOD ABSOLUTELY DECLARES
THAT HE NEVER HAD ANY PLEASURE IN ANY OF THE SACRIFICES UNDER THE LAW.

PLEASE HIM BY OR THROUGH THE LAW.
is the will of God that His Son Jesus Christ made the one time only acceptable
sacrifice that has fully pleased Him, and turned away His wrath forever from those
who repent and believe on His Son.
10: 8Above when he said, Sacrifice and
offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not,
neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; 9Then said he,
Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may
establish the second. 10By

alone for salvation. God declares absolutely that anyone in vain coming to Him
some other way is DEAD STILL! DEAD STILL! STILL DEAD!

Heb 9:23It was therefore necessary that the
patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the
heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24For Christ is
not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures
of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for
us: 25Nor yet that
he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place
every year with blood of others; 26For then must
he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the
end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27And as it is
appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 28So
Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for
him shall he appear the second time WITHOUT SIN UNTO SALVATION.
scriptures make it absolutely clear over and over and over that God has
appointed Jesus Christ alone who through the one- time sacrifice of His sinless
body and blood to be the sole Saviour to grant the free gift of forgiveness of
all sins permanently to the repentant believer. God’s standard for offering
permanent forgiveness is the sinless blood of Christ to all who believe. We see the scriptures keeps on comparing and
contrasting the Levitical Law and its high priesthood/sacrifices with the new
covenant of grace and its eternal high priesthood/sacrifices to declare that
the new covenant is superior in every way to the Law, and the high priest,
Saviour, Mediator Jesus Christ is superior with the power to take away all sins
people, Jesus has not made our relationship to Him one of a casual shallow
nature. He has made us one in Him together with an unbreakable eternal
bond: Eph 2:15;
the author of our salvation and the Head of the church, has fully ordered His
ministry. He has ordained His body, the people of God upon the earth as kings
and priests under His high priesthood. He has appointed us to carry out the order of
service to God on earth, while He himself is continually ministering before
God, in the true tabernacle which is in heaven itself. In His omnipresence He
indwells His people with the spirit of God and the Holy Spirit. We are no
longer our own we have been bought with a price: 1Co 6:20;
In His omnipotence His wings of protection are ever spread over His church to
protect, nourish and care for it as a whole and each believer individually. His
church is not weak, but fully weaponized with the power of His love and truth,
and there is not a foe that has the power to conquer it neither in whole nor in
part: 1Jo 5:4 For
whatsoever is born of God overcometh
the world: and this is the victory that overcometh
the world, even our faith. 1Jo 5:5Who
is he that overcometh the world,
but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? Rev 12:11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the
word of their testimony; and
they loved not their lives unto the

9; 15And for this cause he is the mediator
of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the
transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called
might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. 16For where a
testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
17For a testament is
of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the
testator liveth. 18Whereupon neither the
first testament was dedicated without blood. 19For when
Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took
the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and
sprinkled both the book, and all the people, 20Saying, This
is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you. 21Moreover he sprinkled
with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry. 22And almost all things
are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no
Act 10:43To him give all the prophets witness,
that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
I.Remission: release from bondage or imprisonment
II.forgiveness or pardon, of sins
(letting them go as if they had never been committed), remission of the penalty.
His sinless life, sacrificial death and the shedding of His sinless blood, Jesus
Christ alone completely fulfilled God’s absolute standard to be the Mediator of
the new covenant with absolute sole authority to grant mercy and the free gift of
absolute complete, eternal permanent forgiveness to all who repent and believe
in and on Him. This is a great relief to Christians and a warning to those who
foolishly and in error believe they effected their own forgiveness by some
work(s) they have done for they have done nothing at all and are still unsaved
and should REPENT! And come believing.
and sisters, the Bible lays out the very heart of God in sending His only Son
as the perfect sinless sacrifice to bring in the new covenant under which all
that believe are forgiven of all their sins and saved permanently.
reveals to us the intimate details of His Son’s tremendous mercy, mind, heart,
power, passion, faithfulness, love and truth for and to those whom He created
in taking away all their sins forever.
in the assurance of the Lord our Saviour, His love, truth, and faithfulness teaches
us to laugh in the storms of life and to dance in the rains, fully convinced
that all our losses are but gain. For we know by His love, strength and power
He is in us and always with us, so we are not afraid, and we are never alone;
for there is neither the hand nor the power that can take us from Him. Phl 4:4.

meaning to straighten thoroughly; the Messianic restoration:
The Bible, saints (G40 hagios), is absolutely
clear that this first tabernacle God established under the Law would be
valid only until the time of reformation. Tragically and yes blasphemously the
reformation has been falsely attributed to the heretic Martin Luther-rabid hater of the
jewish people, and other false prophets
of humanistic theology, instead of the rightful Saviour Jesus Christ.
people, one must marvel at those who put their faith in vain in these heretics.
Luther wrote concerning the Jews: "We are at fault in not slaying them”
for avenging the death of Jesus Christ. Hitler's Nazi government in the 1930s
and 40s fit Luther's desires to a tee. Luther preached a false perverted gospel
of a powerless bloodless Christ: that is when he preached a person is saved by
grace alone by faith alone, by Christ alone, this is true but he never believed it. What he really believed and taught is the falsehood that the saved person remains a sinner and needs to keep “short accounts” in hopes of not
dying in unconfessed sin and winding up in hell. The Bible addresses such: 2Ti 3:5 - Having a form of
godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 1Jo 4:20 - If a man say, I love
God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his
brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? The protestant movement of
Professing churches sprang out of this heretic and other false prophets, giving
rise to salvation by works, a return to the Levitical Law, which is no
salvation at all.
Jesus Christ our true eternal Reformation:
Jesus changes every one who believes in
Heb 9:11But Christ being come an high priest
of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with
hands, that is to say, not of this building; 12Neither by the
blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the
holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. 13For if the
blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean,
sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14How much more
shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself
without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God.
and sisters, again and again God, declares the great eternal power of the
blood of Christ. The power and superiority of the sinless blood of our sinless
saviour Jesus Christ is so great that He
only had to offer it one time to cleanse all who believe from all their sins
permanently. The believer is not only forgiven, but thoroughly purged from his inherent
Adamic sin nature. The Christian indwelt by the Holy Spirit is empowered and taught
by scripture the standards and boundaries of the holy life God commands for His
people: 1 Pe 4: 2That he no longer should live the
rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of
God. 3For the time past of our
life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in
lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable

of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or
as a busybody in other men's matters.

that wicked one toucheth him not.

The Earthly Tabernacle
(Exodus 25:1-9; Exodus 40:1-33)
1Then verily the first covenant
had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary. 2For there was a
tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the
table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary. 3And after the second
veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all; 4Which had the golden
censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was
the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of
the covenant; 5And over it the
cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak
and sisters, the tabernacle of the first covenant of the Law was built by men
upon the earth at the direction of God. Its complete structure was meant to
be temporary and designed by God based on the pattern of the true eternal
tabernacle in heaven which was to be revealed at a later time.
Heb 1:6Now when these things were thus
ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing
the service of God. 7But into the second went
the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered
for himself, and for the errors of the people: 8The Holy
Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made
manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: 9Which was a
figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and
sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as
pertaining to the conscience; 10Which stood
only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed
on them until the time of reformation.
have to note, brethren, the major flaws of this first tabernacle-the human
high priest was in every way, despite his title, just another sinner who had
to offer sacrifice for his own sins first, under pain of death if he did not,
before he could even began to offer sacrifice for the sins of all the people.
For all of the splendor of this first tabernacle pitched by men on earth, it
was just carnal, powerless to save souls, but it did offer limited
forgiveness in sacrificing animals etc. so that repentant sinners on earth
under the Law would not have to die for their own sins. The high priest alone
had the right to enter the holiest of all, it was the death penalty for any
others to enter into it. The Bible goes into great detail regarding the
harrowing life of the human high priests of the Law, life could end abruptly
if for them or their children if they did not carry out their service
perfectly, there are many more examples than I can post here: Exo 28:35; Exo 30:20; Lev 10:7; Lev 10:9; Lev 16:2; Num 20:26.
