1CO 11:28 But a man must examine himself (rebound), and in so doing (then) he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup (in the filling of the Holy Spirit). For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly. For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number sleep. But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world.
Psa 37 – Trust in the Lord and do good; Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord; And [then] He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, and He will do it. Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him;
JAM 1:17 Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.
MAT 7:11 “If you hardhearted, sinful men know how to give good gifts to your children, won’t your Father in heaven even more certainly give good gifts to those who ask Him?”
That gift came not wrapped in paper, but wrapped in passion. It was a gift that had the ultimate price attached, one not covered with ribbons and paper, but one sprinkled with pain and blood.
“For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
He became not only a human… He becomes a servant, He becomes not only a servant… but a servant who is willing to die for those He served… and not only a servant willing to die, but one who did die for us…
– and not only one who died for us, but one who died the most humiliating and painful kind of death… He died on a Cross and for those few hours on that Cross He was forsaken.
“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.”
God’s gifts are endless.
GOD IS SATISFIED BE AT PEACE
Jesus Christ is both the sacrificial propitiation made for sin and the sacrificing priest.
The scriptural conception of propitiation is the changing of the circumstances that caused the separation between the parties and interfered with their relationship.
The job of a propitiator is to produce a state of peace between parties at odds, by removing the cause of offence, satisfying the offended, and opening a way for reconciliation.
This is a propitiation provided and made by God Himself.
He didn’t pass it on to another.
He took it upon Himself.
The Divine propitiation is complete.
Every part is completed.
The results are eternal.
Divine propitiation is final.
HEB 10:14 – For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.
The Divine propitiation is sufficient.
It is complete and perfect in the eyes of God.
Those who are saved by faith are made partakers of a complete reconciliation.
In no respect is there any limit as to the adequacy of the work of The Lord to remove all sin. It is sufficient for us as believers and it is sufficient for everyone else in the world.
(1) The atonement is adapted to all people.
(2) It is sufficient for all.
There is no need of any additional sacrifice.
(3) It is not adapted to one person or class more than another.
Propitiation means satisfaction – Divine satisfaction with the work of Christ on the cross, and this forms the basis for reconciliation between God and man.
Although, the sins of the entire human race were imputed to Christ, it is only applied to the individual by faith in Jesus Christ.
Propitiation was motivated by Divine love.
1 John 4:10
This is love, not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
