The Mediator of a Better Covenant - Kneeling at the Cross

By: A Student of the Bible

God said atonement means nothing without paying a price for your sin.

How sorry are you? What are you willing to give to prove you are worthy of God’s forgiveness? Would you sacrifice yourself, give your own life? God has a plan; the people on the earth are to fulfill God’s plan of salvation, this is why He put us here in the flesh.  What good are you to God if you die and go back to Heaven? God needs you here. So what should the price of your atonement be?

With the old covenant God always required a blood sacrifice of your very best for repentance and forgiveness. God could have chosen something simple and common like offering a daisy as the proof of repentance but He chose blood sacrifice for a reason.  Blood sacrifice was the precursor to the new covenant. However “gifts and sacrifices could not make him that did the service perfect as pertaining to the conscience.” God never wanted gifts or dead bloody animals, God wanted Love, He wanted His people to follow Him and turn to Him like children turn to their father, because He is our Father.

Other than God Himself; Christ, perfect and without sin is the most precious thing in existence. There is no better offering for atonement.

Hebrews 9:14  
14 “How 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?”

Christ was the ultimate sacrifice. God’s greatest gift to man was his Son. Christ has put away sin by the sacrifice of himself, one perfect sacrifice, one time, to atone for all sins for all time. Christ became your mediator of a better covenant, Christ is the new covenant. Now, because of Christ’s sacrifice all you have to do for atonement is believe in Christ and repent. Christ already paid the price for you.  Whatsoever Christ asks of His Father it shall be given Him. Ask God for forgiveness in Christ’s name and Christ will mediate for you and God will forgive your sins.

This is how it works, this is the new covenant, the reason Christ was crucified on the cross for your sins.

  1. You know God doesn’t have to impress anyone. He’s trying to impress on you that he has the power of eternal life, and death. He does not want to blot you out. I know some of his judgements seem harsh here in the flesh, but death of the flesh is not eternal. The death of the spirit body, however is eternal. If you came here you have found the truth. There is only one truth. Most people here are students of the Shepherds Chapel. The ones God gave the ability to see the truth in this earth age.

    • Great point bluesky. I think a lot of us lose sight of the fact that this age of flesh is a blink of an eye compared to God’s Eternity of Peace He has in store for us.

      1Co 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

  2. As always, amazing insight of the Lord’s message! Things are certainly getting darker by the day.

  3. Labor pains. Birth of a new earth age. Goes along with all the babble out there. Also a Boing 777 disappears without a trace? That is strange.

  4. There all over the place these days Mark. Thanks for the note!

  5. Guthrie, OK/. had a 3.9 earthquake last week !!

    “If God wanted to forgive our sins, why not just forgive them? Who’s God trying to impress? Presumably himself, since he’s judge, jury, and execution victim.”

    uhmm. It appears like someone made his choice to follow baal. sounds like you dont understand God or his plan. You made your choice perfectly clear. so i guess you wont be coming back to learn to understand that God is doing all this for you. I hope since you expressed how you feel about God that you chose to worship satan.

  8. Thank you

    • You may wish to read the article. Just forgiving your sins does not add your skin to the game. It takes effort on your part, you need to seek out God and ask for repentance or it means nothing.

    • AnonymousMarch 7 how did you get on this forum? Atheists are usually found on the CNN.com forum.

  10. Cool, I’ve wondered how and why Christ being crucified made it possible to forgive our sins, why would such a thing be necessary. Now I know. Thank you.
