Message of the Day: By Christ’s Death Our Sins Are Taken Away

“…so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.” (Hebrews 9:28, NKJV)

Levitical sacrifices were part of a material order and brought symbolic cleansing. Christ’s death is concerned with spiritual order and brings actual cleansing. The Levitical high priest entered the symbolic presence of God with the blood of a sacrificial animal, a ceremony that had to be repeated yearly. Christ entered God’s real presence on account of his own blood, and he did so only once. His death is sufficient to remove completely the sins of the whole world, past, present and future. (9:24-26)

People die once and face judgment. Christ died once and gained eternal salvation for those who trust in him. By his death we are forgiven; our sins are taken away. We will enjoy the fulness of our salvation when Christ reappears, coming out of the heavenly tabernacle to be with us for ever. (9:27-28)
