THE BLOOD OF BULLS AND GOATS

BEFORE AND SINCE THE CROSS

Before the Cross Sacrifice of blood and bulls is only a covering of sin
not a cleansing from sin.

Heb 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. the blood sacrifice of bulls and goats.


THE CROSS;
Jesus IS the ultimate Sacrifice
II Cor 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.


The thief on the Cross obtained salvation …
through BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
Luke 23:42And he said unto Jesus, Lord,
remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee,
To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.


JESUS SAID: Today Paradise!
We can see AN APPOINTMENT IMMEDIATELY UPON DEATH
...no soul sleep...(2 Cor 5:8) absent from the body,
present with the Lord.

Upon death the thief would have then
met up the Lord in Paradise.
*PARADISE WAS IN THE BELLY OF THE EARTH;

Jesus first descended to then ascended above as described in:
Eph 4:8 wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high,
he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.

Eph 4:9 (Now that he ascended,
what is it but that he also descended first into the lower
parts of the earth?

Eph 4:10 He that descended is the same also that ascended
up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)

JESUS DESCENDED TO PARADISE AND THEN ASCENDED
[ascended to where?]



PARADISE IS CLEARLY DESCRIBED IN LUKE 16

Luke 16: 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham,
have mercy on me, and send Lazarus,
that he may dip the tip of his finger in water,
and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.


Note; not all believe this parable as literal,
yet the WORD has given additional supportive scripture
encouraging to support its
validity as a literal place of existence.

We may ask ourselves at this point:
Who was captivity captive?
Why were they captive?
Why did Jesus descend to retrieve these captives in captivity?


For the answer we must look back to before the Cross.
Sacrifice of blood and bulls is atonement for sin; only covered sin.
[Heb 10:4]


WHO IS CAPTIVITY CAPTIVE?
Heb 11 gives insight to the Saints of Old;
those before the Cross looked forward to it
as we look back on it.
They waited on their promised redeemer to come.
The one that was to born in Bethlehem.[Micah 5:2]


WHY WERE THEY CAPTIVE?
Upon death those Saints in God crossed over
into Paradise; a place of bondage not quit the picture of Heaven
as one may imagine. For its not clearly heavens finest if you could
look across a gulf and see others being tormented in flames.
We can imagine those in the Paradise side had a sense of relief
it was not them in the flames mingled with a sense of pity,
remorse, grief at the sight of others in eternal tormentation.
This is clearly not Heavens finest if you are grieving;
your rejoicing is not in its fullest of measure
but joy interrupted.

Satan had some stronghold in the fall of man
some authority over men... that unless Jesus died on the Cross
this place Paradise was as good as and was going to get for those
that Loved the True Living God. It was not Heaven.
Heaven is not in the Belly of the earth.

satans victory was in the garden of eden;
man was tested and fell to the god of this world.
Gods victory was Jesus death on the Cross;
taking ownership of the fall of man;
the sins of the world he bore upon His Holy Body.

"And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom"
(Mark 15:38).

"And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst"
(Luke 23:45).

Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil" (Heb6:19).

Jesus is the anchor that entered in as our high priest.

Heb 9:11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

"IF" the blood of bulls and goats could render a mans soul passage
into the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, then Jesus died on the Cross in vain.
Now we can see the Saints of Old were held Captive.

WHY DID JESUS DESCEND TO RETRIEVE THESE CAPTIVES IN CAPTIVITY?
After the Cross; those that Loved God the Father and waited on Jesus His Son;
Jesus took these souls out of Paradise and up to the Third Heaven
rendering the comfort side of Hadies the Paradise side
*CLOSED or VOID or residency if you will.

Paradise is now the *Third Heaven, THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN;
Jesus* tore the veil opened the Gate and made this possible!
Praise Holy Jesus* for enduring much suffering for we sinners.
Eph 4:8 he led *Captivity *Captive, and gave gifts unto men.

Heb 9:15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament,
that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions
that were under the first testament, they which are called might
receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come,
by a greater and more perfect tabernacle,
not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves,
but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place,
having obtained eternal redemption for us.

23 It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things
in the heavens should be purified with these;
but the heavenly things themselves with better
sacrifices than these.

24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made
with hands, which are the figures of the true;
but INTO HEAVEN ITSELF,
now to appear in the presence of God for us:

[INTO HEAVEN ITSELF is a little clue]

Consider the gifts given to those before the Cross
are not all in the same as the gifts promised to
we on this side of the Cross. For one those
before the Cross are considered friends of the Bridegroom.
The Bride awaits on this side of the Cross.

I believe the thief on the Cross was the first
recorded member of the Bride of Christ.
Realize Jesus died before the thief saying it is finished
hence the thief would then upon death enter into Bride of Christ.
[We realize a part of the Bride is in Heaven now and part
still on earth; as to die in Jesus today is to change places;
from earth dwelling to heaven dwelling... amen]

I pet 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation,
a royal priesthood, an holy nation,
a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises
of him who hath called you out of darkness
into his marvellous light:


JESUS ASCENDED TO WHERE?; to the THIRD HEAVEN


[ J.V.I. study]- There are Three Heavens:
2 Cors 12:2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago,
(whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body,
I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the *third heaven.

WE HAVE MENTION OF THE FIRST AND THIRD HEAVEN

THE *FIRST HEAVEN IS MADE OF THE:

ATMOSPHERE
TROPOSPHERE
STRATOSPHERE
MESOSPHERE
IONOSPHERE
EXOSPHERE

FROM THE EARTH UP TO APPROX. 600 MILES IN SPACE

FROM THERE UP ANOTHER APPROX. 600 MILES IN SPACE UPWARDS

QUASARS HAVE BEEN DISCOVERED 80 - 85 MILLION LIGHT YEARS FROM EARTH
<6 TRILLION MILES IS THE DISTANCE OF A LIGHT YEAR>
APPROX DISTANCE IS 185 TRILLION BILLION MILES...thats 95% TO THE END OF THE
SECOND HEAVEN
THE END OF THE COSMOS
THE HUBBLE HAS A LENS TO SEE THAT FAR
IT IS SHORT ONLY 5% OF SIGHT TO SEE THE GATES OF HEAVEN INTO THE
*THIRD HEAVEN (Kinda like the Tower of Babble)

Talk about no generation will have known and seen as much; we are it.
If we have too much more time here.
We will watch what goes on the Third Heaven
Just as the tower of Babble; not permissible
_______________________________________________________________


Rom 2: 5 But after thy hardness and impenitent
heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against
the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;
6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

THE JUST AND THE UNJUST WILL BE MEASURED BY HIS DEEDS
EACH WILL RECEIVE HIS REWARD ACCORDINGLY.

Matt 11:23 And thou, Capernaum, which art
exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell:
for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee,
had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.
24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the
land of Sodom in the Day of Judgment, than for thee.

WHY IS JUDGMENT FOR SODOM MORE TOLERABLE THAN FOR CAPERNAUM?
SODOM WAS BEFORE CHRIST; THEY HAD NOT HEARD OF HIM
THERE ARE DIFFERENT DEGREES OF PUNISHMENT... JUST AS REWARDS

FOR EXAMPLE; SOME LIVE ALL THEIR LIVES WORKING FOR THE LORD;
THEY ARE SAVED AND HAVE DENIED THEMSELVES MUCH IN JESUS NAME SAKE.

OTHERS MAY FIND JESUS ON THEIR DEATH BED,
NEVER HAVING DONE A THING IN THE NAME OF JESUS

SALVATION IS A FREE GIFT FROM GOD.
YET THERE ARE CROWNS TO EARN IN JESUS NAME
REWARDS: THERE WILL BE THOSE WITH NO CROWN TO OFFER UNTO THE LORD.

THE FINAL PENITENTIARY
GAHANNA- THE LAKE of Fire or HELL
The Judgment at the Great White Throne

11 And I saw a Great White Throne,
and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away;
and there was found no place for them.

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God;
and the books were opened: and another book was opened,
which is the book of life:
and the dead were judged out of those things which were
written in the books,
according to their works.

13 And the sea gave up the dead, which were in it;
and DEATH AND HELL DELIVERED UP THE DEAD,
which were in them: and they were judged every man
according to their works.

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.
This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life
was cast into the lake of fire.

DEATH AS IN DEAD - WITHOUT CHRIST...
THESE IN HELL (HADES) are brought up from Hades to stand before
the Great White Throne of Judgment… to be judged and sentenced
to what level of degree of punishment for all eternity..
After Judgment they are sent back to the eternal prison Hell
(or Gahanna)... where each individual will serve out his or her
degree of punishment for all eternity


WHAT HAPPENED TO THE OLD PARADISE ADJACENT THE FLAMES OF HELL?
The INCREASE of the wicked have since taken up residency there...


Isa 5:14 THEREFORE HELL HATH ENLARGED HERSELF,
and opened her mouth without measure:
and their glory, and their multitude,
and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth,
shall descend into it.
--------------------

BEFORE THE CROSS:
Exo 32:30 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto the Lord; peradventure I shall make an atonement for your sin.

Lev 4 :26 And he shall burn all his fat upon the altar, as the fat of the sacrifice of peace offerings: and the priest shall make an atonement for him as concerning his sin, and it shall be forgiven him.

Leviticus 5:16 And he shall make amends for the harm that he hath done in the holy thing, and shall add the fifth part thereto, and give it unto the priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering, and it shall be forgiven him.


-------------
AFTER THE CROSS:


Eph 1: 7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;


1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him


II Cor 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.

Philip.3:21; he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

JESUS* PAID THE COST IN FULL;
that WHOSOEVER will might enter in and be SAVED.

John3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that WHOSOEVER believeth in him should not perish, but have EVERLASTING LIFE.

The covering of ones sins through the blood of bulls and goats; these were necessary repetitious acts before Yahweh.

~~~~~~

On THIS SIDE OF THE CROSS:
Jesus being the ultimate sacrifical Lamb;
is not a repetitious act of our ability to obtain Salvation.

Jesus* died once and for all... likewise
"ONCE Saved" -YOU ARE SAVED; for all eternity.

Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door,
and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door,
I will come in to him,
and will sup with him,
and he with me.

Unless you had a mental ascent
by which means you are not saved only delusional
This then being your hearts earnest wake up call to come to Jesus*
to obtain in spirit what the mind cannot comprehend.


"ALL" PRAISE to JESUS * for ALL THE GOOD THINGS HE HAS DONE!
