Before the Cross, animal blood sacrifices were made again and again for the sins of the people. The person offering the animal blood also had to present blood for their own sins too. They never sat down because this work was never complete.
When Jesus died, He offered His blood once and for all time. Further, He didn't have to offer blood for Himself because He had no sin. When He finished this task He sat down at the right hand of God.
The truth is:
Once you've believed, you are completely forgiven forever and there's nothing you can do to change this. The only thing which could possibly change your complete forgiveness is if the Father and Son break their promise to one another.
That won't happen.You are not more powerful than His blood and their promise.For those who will yell at me, "So, are you saying we can just sin, sin, SIN!?" it sounds like you're more obsessed with your sins than you are the Savior.You should question your salvation because you're saying you are more powerful than Christ's blood because you still sin. We all do. My friend, you're not more powerful. You are simply one of His many creations. With all due respect, get over yourself and make a bigger deal of Jesus. Repent of not believing His blood will forgive you completely, once, before it's too late. You are an enemy of God with this mindset. You are saying there's still a sacrifice to be made for your sins and that the blood of Christ was not sufficient.Please, please repent of your unbelief in the blood of the Messiah. You will be eternally separated from Him if you do not.
For the rest of us who have believed, we are safe and secure forever! Don't shrink back from this truth or be afraid of the self-righteous legalists who don't trust the blood of Jesus!
NEVER WATER DOWN WHAT HE'S DONE AT THE CROSS! IT IS MORE POWERFUL THAN ANYTHING OR ANYONE!
