    when He said Adam Eve where are you Their reply was comical when they said We are hiding To think that anyone could hide from the one who created the universe and knows all things What we are going to see next shows the character and intention of YHWH Jesus from the beginning or even from eternity past He asked them why they were hiding as if He did not know He knew but He wanted them to know They were naked in their own efforts to please God There was nothing they could do to please God There is nothing that can be done today to please God Good news there is nothing you need to do to please God He loves you and He desires oneness with you so much that what He did next shows how He really feels about you The Bible says YHWH made a skin covering for man s nakedness What makes this covering better than the one man made for his own nakedness Up until this point nothing had died on the earth or in the Garden But now YHWH Himself shed the blood of an innocent animal to make a skin covering for man s sin This is a big deal because it shows a picture of the cross and the blood atonement of the coming Christ The one who carried this out in the garden was the one who would be carrying it out on the cross This is a picture of the atonement Before we saw that the Mercy Seat was actually a picture of the atonement This even pre exists the mercy seat This is in the beginning I believe that the atonement as far as God is concerned actually existed in God s mind before time existed I have said before that God said that he chose us before the foundation of the world Also that people before the cross looked forward to the cross for believing resulting in salvation and we look back to the cross I am going to go ahead and say that in God s mind it was finished on the cross before time began I said before that it was fleshed out in time when Jesus willingly went to the cross as He became sin so that in His death burial and resurrection His life would become our life This is the atonement The word atonement in English means to be lifted out of the camp of the enemy and placed into the camp of the friendly That is exactly what Christ has done Because of His atoning death burial and resurrection which was in effect before time existed and was first displayed in the garden we have been made right with Him and placed into the camp of the friendly Sadly I don t know why but some people choose not to receive and believe what has been done for them and given to them is theirs As a result they don

    him not to call anything unclean or unholy that He had cleansed Do you think that God would know what is clean and what is unclean I hope you think He would know Cornelius was a picture of the truth of the holiness of God given as a gift He did not deserve it he had not even been saved yet and he was not a Jew but God said through Peter that they were not to call him unholy Holiness is not something earned or deserved it is given at the cross The only issue now is believing what God said is true is really true In John 3 17 18 none other than Jesus Himself talks about this For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world but that the world should be saved through Him He who believes in Him is not judged he who does not believe has been judged already because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God He said here that judgment comes from unbelief He did not say because you have not obeyed the law the 10 Commandments He said because you have not believed I want to ask a question If the sin debt of man was paid on the cross when Christ became sin then does it stand to reason that the problem of man s righteousness and holiness was also finished at the cross I believe that the answer is yes Again what is our part To believe that he did it all and it was given as a gift in Christ all of it 2 Corinthians 5 18 19 says Now all these things are from God who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation namely that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself not counting their trespasses against them and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation These verses say all these things are from God righteousness holiness forgiveness life God is the point of origin Christ reconciled us To be reconciled means the following to exchange to change or to return to favor Christ has returned us to favor because of the cross He has exchanged His life with us for our sin He did this when He became sin as the last Adam to deal with the sin of the first Adam When He said that we were reconciled to Himself it could have been properly translated in Himself We were not just reconciled to Him we were reconciled in Him What a big deal this is This does not mean that everyone is saved They are not People must be born again believe and receive Christ s life as their life His life is a gift given because of His resurrection More coming later Tags Permalink Comments 0 Related posts The Finished Work Of The Cross I think people are sometimes so caught
