REVELATION FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT PRINCIPLES OF ATONEMENT

 

This section lines up precisely with the 22 points covered under the Chapter ‘Day of Atonement’ in 'Eagles Fly High!'. They can be referred to there for further clarification.

 

 

B. ATONEMENT PRINCIPLES ‘POSITIONALLY’ FULFILLED BY JESUS

 

(To be Experientially fulfilled, that is Embraced, by the Church)

The exciting realisation for today is that Jesus has left opportunities, for those who desire to grasp them, to assist Him in fulfilling God’s mighty plan for mankind. For there are 12 promises Jesus ‘positionally’ fulfilled on the cross, but which are waiting to be embraced by His church in ‘experiential’ fulfilment. Today the second three are considered.

This is the privilege and pleasure that has been delegated to His Tabernacle church.

 

 

20. The Scapegoat: (Leviticus 16:8, 10, 20-22, 26)

 

 

Leviticus 16:8, 10, 20-22, 26

 

 

There is some debate over the exact meaning of the Scapegoat in relation to Christ. However it is certain that the twin goat testimony reflected the work that Christ did for us on the cross.

While Jesus did the full work of taking away our individual sin and so completed the work of the scapegoat, the church still has a role in the ministry of the Scapegoat in four areas. These are:

a. Presented Without Blemish: The church is to be presented with Christ before the Father without spot or blemish. Some way to go yet!

 

 

1 Peter 1:18-20, Ephesians 5:26-7

 

 

b. Ministry of Reconciliation to the Father: The job of achieving the above. Delegated both to Christ and the church.

 

 

Hebrews 2:17, 2 Corinthians 5:17-21

 

 

c. Ministry of Forgiveness: As the Scapegoat symbolised the sending away of sin, so Christ and the Church are involved in the ministry of forgiveness of sins.

 

 

James 5:15-17, Acts 7:60, Mark 16:19-20, 2 Corinthians 5:18-21, Luke 24:49, John 20: 22-23

 

 

d. Bearing the Insults of the World on Behalf of Christ: As Christ’s representatives in the world.  

 

Hebrews 13:10-13, Romans 15:3, Luke 6:22, 1 Peter4:14

 

21. Atonement for the Church: (Leviticus 16:16-20, 23)

 

 

Leviticus 16:16-20, 23

 

 

The Church is God’s earthly sanctuary, which he inhabits by his Spirit. We know that if the promises of the Bible are true, which they are, we haven’t as yet entered into the full experiential power of the positional Atoning work for which Christ died on the cross. For we are neither perfect, nor are we living in the power and presence of God’s glory. As the church has already experienced both the truths of Passover and Pentecost, so it is beginning to experience the power of the truths of the Tabernacle Feasts.

 

 

1 Corinthians 3:16, 2 Corinthians 6:16, Ephesians 2:20-22, 1 Peter 2:5-9, John 14:12

 

22.The Atonement for Sins Uncleanness, Rebellion and Wickedness: (Leviticus 16:16, 21, Daniel 9:24-27)

 

 

Leviticus 16:16, 21, Daniel 9:24-27

 

 

The ultimate fulfilment of the Day of Atonement will be seen in a sinless, pure, unified, perfect church, made so through the atoning blood of Jesus. Final fulfilment of this promise will be attained when Jesus returns, as we meet Him in the air to receive our everlasting immortal bodies. However, in this current age, as the Tabernacle church applies the truths of the Day of Atonement, so the glory of God will shine through it and us in greater and greater measure. Perfection is the goal, but the nature of Atonement is progressive, a process of development, as each individual grasps hold of and applies the principles of Atonement to their own life. The only ‘magic fix’ is found in the level of the submission of our wills to God the Father, which is not magic at all, but a conscious decision each of us makes. The final revelation of God, in line with the Cross, and Pentecost, will happen during the Feast of Tabernacles with the return of Jesus. The timing of that climactic event may well be dependent upon the time it takes us to enter into the truths of the Day of Atonement.

 

 

1 John 2:1-6, 1 Corinthians 15:50-55, 13:10, Philippians 3:12-16, Revelation 12:11, Matthew 28:20 +

 

 

Jesus fulfilled all twenty-two Spiritual Principles of the Day of Atonement. However the final twelve have yet to be fully embraced by the church. That is the role of the end-time Tabernacle church.

So let’s now see what additional enlightenment can be obtained from the Letter to the Hebrews, the book that interprets this Feast from a New Testament perspective.

 

 

NEXT WEEK:: BEYOND THE VEIL – 2 NEW TESTAMENT REVELATION ON ATONEMENT THE BOOK OF HEBREWS

 

The interpretation of the Day of Atonement is an
underlying theme of a good part of the New Testament, particularly the book of Hebrews which is largely devoted to this theme.

We will see how.

 

 

A NOTE FROM DAVID

 

While all this may seem far fetched to many, as we can't see it in our present day church, these are the principles that have to be fulfilled before Jesus returns.

The changes will happen quickly and will turn His true church upside down!

May we be ready. May we change.

Come, Lord Jesus, come.

Ancient Babylonia - The Amorites

Most scholars date the beginning of Babylonia to the fall of the third dynasty of Ur, around 2000 BC because many Amorites apparently migrated from the desert into Mesopotamia. The Amorites were a group of Semitic speaking nomads, who captured the local city-states where they established new dynasties and adapted to the culture of the surrounding area. The Amorites had helped destroy the Sumerian civilization and dominated Mesopotamia for about 300 years (1900-1600 BC). They ruled the land out of the city of Babylon. But soon the Amorite immigrants and the previous locals began fighting for power, in this caused considerable confusion during this early period.

 

 

So until next week.......
MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOU BLESS GOD!

His servant and yours
