REDEMPTION THROUGH SACRIFICE

(Few things could be this important to your spiritual life)

When the man and woman whom God had created chose to sin against Him, He separated them from His presence. They attempted to cover their nakedness by sewing fig leaves together and girding them around their waists (Gen. 2:7). This was man's attempt to cover his own sin and shame.

God did not honor the fig leaves so He shed the blood of animals to make them "coats of skins, and clothed them" (Gen. 3:21). Because He had already foretold that His Son would be sent to redeem the fallen race (Gen. 3:15), God chose to depict the sacrifice that the coming Redeemer would make by the sacrifice of innocent animals. The atonement for the man and woman by the sacrifice of these animals pointed to the prophesied Savior who would later come and personally shed His blood to atone for the sins of His creation which had been contaminated by sin.

From the cradle of creation through the dispensation of the Mosaic law, in Christ's redemptive blood on Calvary's cross, and throughout eternity future, we see that in the Creator's economy, it is blood that quenches the fire of His holy vengeance.

    "And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is NO remission." Hebrews 9:22

God obviously instructed Adam and Eve to sacrifice animals to continue to cover their sin because their son Abel brought "the firstlings of his flock" at the time of sacrifice (Gen. 4:4).

The blood sacrifice that Abel offered to God was accepted because it demonstrated faith in the coming Redeemer.

When Israel was in bondage God informed the nation that each family was to shed the blood of an unblemished lamb and place the blood upon their doorposts before He delivered them from Egypt (Ex. 12). He said that this blood would save them from His wrath. The unblemished lamb was a type of the spotless Lamb of God which was to come to be slain (1 Peter 1:19), saving those who would receive Him, from the wrath of God (Rom. 5:9).

Not Just Any Blood

    “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem...” Galatians 4:4-5

Sin separated men from their holy Maker and God (Isa. 59:2). Under the law God instructed the nation of Israel to approach Him by the sacrifice of animals. The sins of the people were atoned for by the blood of animals because this demonstrated faith in the prophesied and coming Redeemer (Lev. 16:34, 17:11). In Leviticus 16 there is a twofold typology of Christ found. Aaron, the priest of Israel, was to take two goats to atone for the sins of the people (Lev. 16:8-10). One of these two goats was used as a "sin offering" and the other for a "scapegoat". The "sin offering" goat that was sacrificed was a type of Christ who would later shed His blood, "offering Himself without spot to God" (Heb. 9:14). His blood, which was depicted here in the blood of the animal, was to be the ultimate price for atonement (at-one-ment) that the Father required for the removal of the sins of the fallen race. The word "scapegoat" here literally means the goat of departure. Concerning this live goat of departure, the LORD instructed Aaron to lay both hands upon him and confess all the sins and iniquities of Israel upon him and then send him away into the wilderness (Lev. 16:20-22). This goat, the scapegoat, was a type of Christ in that it would carry the sins of God's people away from them. It would separate them from sin so that their sin wouldn't separate them from God. This is a type of Christ in that He was to come and shed His perfect blood to "take away the sin of the world." (John 1:29)

This prophetic pattern continued to cover the sins of His people from the time of the fall until the One whom these sacrifices foreshadowed appeared (Heb. 10). Those in Israel who truly loved the LORD fervently anticipated the arrival of the prophesied Messiah an Lamb of God. About 4,000 years after man had fallen, a prophet named John the baptist, saw Jesus approaching and declared "Behold, the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world" (John 1:29). It was the fullness of time and the Father had sent the promised Redeemer into the earth to "take away the sin of the world". The sacrifices that once atoned for Israel would now be superceded by the one sacrifice of God's only begotten Son (Heb. 10:1-23). His pure and spotless blood would now be shed to remove the sins of the world. The Lamb which was slain before the foundation of the world (in the mind of God) was now manifest in the flesh to redeem mankind from his sinful and separated state (Revelation 13:8; John 1:14). He became the "propitiation" (atoning sacrifice) for our sins (1 John 2:2).

Just before He went to His ordained altar, the cross, to be offered up for the sin of the world, Jesus said;

    "For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins." Matthew 26:28

As is clearly announced in the God-breathed New Testament records, redemption, remission, and the forgiveness of sins comes only from the blood of Jesus, the one and only Redeemer of men (Ephesians 1:7).

    "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace." Ephesians 1:7

THE FINAL SACRIFICE

He who knew no sin became the atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world (2 Cor. 5:21).

    "When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost." John 19:30

It was out of the riches of His mercy and grace that our sins have been remitted by the one sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God. Note the finality of language He uses to convince you of this in the following passage:

    "But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God...For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.... And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by "But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God...For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.... And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith..." Hebrews 10:12-22

    Are You Being Deceived ?

Not only does the blood of Jesus take away/remove the sins of the one who personally receives Him, but also the guilt that is always coupled with sin (Heb. 9:14; 1 John 1:9). What great salvation!

    "And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first-begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. "And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first-begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood." Rev. 1:5
