JESUS IN PROPHECY: Our Sin Offering.

| Spiry Tee

"Still, it’s what God had in mind all along, to crush him with pain. The plan was that he give himself as an offering for sin so that he’d see life come from it—life, life, and more life. And God's plan will deeply prosper through him."
Isaiah 53:10 MSG

The Lord Jesus laid down His life for us as a sin offering. Moses commanded the  children of Israel to offer animals as sin offerings for sins committed in "ignorance" (Leviticus 4).

Sin offerings were different from other offerings in that even the priest had no right to eat any part of the flesh of the animals. Their bodies, skin, dung and all were burned outside the camp.

"We have an altar from which those who serve the tabernacle have no right to eat. For the bodies of those animals, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned outside the camp. Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered outside the gate." (Hebrews 13:10‭-‬12 NKJV)

The old covenant was a shadow of the real. The true substance is Jesus Christ. They were dramatizing what Jesus would do to sanctify the people with His blood.

In all this, Jesus wanted to see "life come from it- life, life and more life". It was prophesied by Isaiah that His death will result in a resurrection, "He will see His seed and prolong His days". When He rose from the dead we arose together with Him. His new life is our life.

Everyone who believes in Jesus has this resurrection life. This was God's plan all along and was fulfilled in Christ when He died and rose triumphantly the third day over two thousand years ago. Now we have life, life and life more abundantly.

Jesus suffered as my sin offering so that I can have life and have it more abundantly.
