One of the most tossed around lines that is never explained. How and why did he die for my sins? I don't get that.
1 Corinthians 15:45 "And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit."
Hebrews 9:14 "How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from
dead works to serve the living God?"
Hebrews 7:27 "Who needs not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did
once, when he offered up himself."
1 Timothy 2:6 "Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time."
Matthew 20:28 "Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered to, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many."
Hebrews 9:28 "So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and to them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin to
Romans 5:14 "Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is
the figure of him that was to come."
Romans 5:12 "Why, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed on all men, for that all have sinned:"
Romans 5:17 "For if by one man's offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall
reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)"
1 Corinthians 15:21 "For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead."
Hebrews 10:4 "For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins."
Romans 8:3 "For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for
sin, condemned sin in the flesh:"
2 Corinthians 5:21 "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him."
Hebrews 2:14 "For as much then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he
might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;"
Adam and Eve disobeyed Gods command not to partake of the Tree Of Knowledge. Satan convinced them that God was a liar and that they would not die
after doing so, but become gods. Now all men die, because of the transgression of the first Adam. So thus it was necessary to redeem mankind through
the Last Adam Jesus Christ. The law of the Old Testament was merely a shadow of the things to come. Blood was required to atone for sin, but by
Christ's sacrifice once for all men through all ages, mankind can be redeemed. Satan corrupted mankind, and in turn Creation. That is why wee see
radioactive decay and the world is full of death. The first prophecy in the Bible is found in Genesis 3:15. The Seed of the Woman would crush the
seed of Satan. Yes, Satan has offspring, particularly Antichrist (at least genetically or in the spirit). Man was made in the likeness of God without
sin. Now through sin death reigns. By taking the punishment we all deserve because of our fallen sinful nature, and taking on that nature but yet
being without sin, Christ paid the penalty for everyone in full. Through His resurrection, he has promised to restore us and resurrect us on the last
day. Through this act, God defeated death and in turn Satan. A man by the name of Douglas Hamp has made a very interesting connection with DNA and the
fall of man. Jesus was born of a virgin, and incarnate in sinful flesh. Yet, His Father is Yahweh, who is not flesh and blood. So Mary gave Yahushua X
chromosomes, but since His Father is the other half of the DNA, he got a new Y chromosome that all others do not have. So it stands to reason that DNA
has a role to play in God's plan of salvation. We are all born of Adam, but Christ does not have this Y chromosome. He has a new one given by God. To
be a part of the Kingdom of God you must be born again of the spirit. The Bible speaks of those who believe in Yahushua in word and deed, and that
these of humanity will get a new glorified body and thus a new DNA structure made in the likeness of Jesus Christ. Through repentance from sin, and
accepting Christ's sacrifice, you are a new creation and born from above. He loves humanity and is not willing that any should perish but that all
should come to repentance.
