Sacrifice, Not Sacrifices

Hebrews 10:11-12

Amplified Bible (AMP)

11Furthermore, every [human] priest stands [at his altar of service] ministering daily, offering the same sacrifices over and over again, which never are able to strip [from every side of us] the sins [that envelop us] and take them away– 12Whereas this One [Christ], after He had offered a single sacrifice for our sins [that shall avail] for all time, sat down at the right hand of God,

Jesus made one sacrifice for all mankind. He did not go to the cross multiple times. He did it once, so that we would not be sin conscious. Too many Christians today are sin conscious and not righteousness conscious. Sin conscious will cause you to try to make multiple offerings of sacrifice for sins. Jesus took care of all sin at one time. We are to be righteousness conscious so that we will not entangle ourselves in sin.

Jesus is considered our High Priest. Hebrews 3:1 SO THEN, brethren, consecrated and set apart for God, who share in the heavenly calling, [thoughtfully and attentively] consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest Whom we confessed [as ours when we embraced the Christian faith]. Hebrews 4:1 Inasmuch then as we have a great High Priest Who has [already] ascended and passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession [of faith in Him]. He does not go to the altar to make multiple sacrifices for you and I. Jesus does not go to the cross every time you mess up. He made one offering for all. Hebrews 10:14 For by a single offering He has forever completely cleansed and perfected those who are consecrated and made holy. God had a resolution about how to make us clean permanently. He had a way for us to be able to approach Him and His throne room. He made a way for the veil to be pierced. My brother Paul wrote the following in his blog today, and I quote “Without the sacrifice there could be no resolution, redemption or salvation.” This is so true! Without God, making a firm decision, you and I, would not have our sins cleansed or be redeemed or even have salvation.

Stop trying to make multiple sacrifices and stop remembering your old sin. Hebrews 10:16-17 16This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Stop trying to remember your sin because He doesn’t! Start remembering who you are in Christ Jesus. You are the redeemed of the Lord. You are the righteousness in Christ Jesus. You are sanctified by the blood of the Lamb. You are God’s chosen, highly anointed and bless people. You are God’s special people. You are His delight!

Know today, that God is not, going to make another sacrifice. He is not going to put Jesus back on the cross. He is not going to take on this flesh and blood. He did it once, and that is all that is to say about it. Thank You Lord for the sacrifice you made. I will not look back on the old past. I will not make your sacrifice of none effect! Thank You Lord that I receive! Amen!

    Wow another weekend here already… My brother thanks for mention above. If folks understood the benefits of interaction like this we would make more of a dent on the devils kingdom. Anyway, this is about him, the Lord’s sacrifice, I like what you said about the “one sacrifice.” It made me think, we are so used to making many of them, yet he made just one which was for all time. Which tells me he must be the “perfect sacrifice.” And our Job is to accept him as our sacrifice in return

    Thanks for a thought provoking blog Pastor Phil and havea mega big weekend.

    Paul.
