Atonement – Restoring The Benefits

The Death, burial and resurrection was GOD saying “the earth is under NEW management”

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. He will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” Genesis 3:15

The benefits are so rich to those who believe!!
THE DEVIL HAS WORKED HARD TO DECEIVE THE CHURCH OUT OF THE EMPOWERMENT OF THE ATONEMENT!!!

  • He tempts us in sin
  • He tempts us in doubt of our faith in God and His word
  • He tempts and trials us to surrender (give up)

He does this by adding to or questioning the WORD of God!!   Did God really say?

There is power in agreement right?  This works in both kingdoms!!

What you speak over yourself good or bad, you get!!

If we are ignorant of what the Word says, we are an open target!!

 

My Incomplete List of Atonement Benefits:

  1. The Wrath of God was settled upon His Son, until a time of Revelations or a person dies.Don’t mistake chastisement for wrath. They are very different.
    1. God deals differently now with mankind?!
    2. Jesus is the full expressive image of the Father..on five occasions Jesus heals evyerone in the crowd of a multitude..not even saved people?!
    3. Is this a wrathful Father?
    4. However, you don’t want to test God like the Pharisees and Aniais and Sifira did.

Romans 5:9  Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.

1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,

Romans 2:5 But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.

Romans 2:5 But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.

 

  1. The powerful cleansing Blood of Christ, sinless, washed away, not covered, but washed away not to be remembered ever again!!1 John 1:7 But if we live in the light, as God does, we share in life with each other. And the blood of his Son Jesus washes all our sins away.

     

  2. NT Christ blood washed sin away, OT just covered it. Don’t keep focused on your mistakes
  3. Focus on Christ…the temptations get less and less

 

  1. Payment for sin FOREVER for all mankind, anyone who repents and believes upon Jesus!!
    In theHeb 9:22 without blood there is no payment for sin

     

    1. 1 John 2:2 He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. 

 

  1. Death was dealt to, Jesus holds the keys!! He now is the author of LIFE.. not the angel of death!Rev 1:18 and the Living one; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive for evermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.

     

    1. Satan doesn’t have the keys to his house, Jesus holds them too!

 

  1. New race of on the earth, adopted sons of God, not servants! Sons have a invested interest in the house….its part of their inheritance. A servant just does what is asked because he has to.Eph 1:5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.

     

  2. Now a daily heart celebration not yearly ritual.

    Heb 9:7 & 10
    For that old system deals only with food and drink and various cleansing ceremonies—physical regulations that were in effect only until a better system could be established
  3. The Holy Spirit ever present helper!!John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

     

  4. Authority won back on the earth, the devil lost authority, now in the hands of the BELIEVERS!!
    UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT!!!

Mar 16:16-18  Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17  And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18  they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.” 

  1. The GRACE of God, unmerited favor of God, mercy in stead of Judgement!!Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,
  2. The New man in Christ, old man is dead, new man seated in heavenly placesEphesians 4:24 and put on the new MAN, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth
  3. Christ within the believers, abide in, God came down to abide in us!John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
  4. All Curses are broken, He became a cursed for us, sin curses and family cursesGalatians 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”—
  1. Sickness and disease destroyed, paid in full by His stripes and divine health given!!1 Peter 2:24 & Isa 53:4 He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
  2. Old Priesthood finished, New Priesthood, you now go direct to GodHeb 7:12 For when the priesthood is changed, the law must be changed also.
  3. End of animal sacrifices, no more death and blood!!Hebrews 10:3 But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins.
  4. Fulfillment of the OT Law, not abolished, but He satisfied it requirements and simplified the New Covenant with LOVE God and LOVE your neighborGal 5:14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
  5. The Birth of the Church, the Body of Christ in the earthAct 2:1 When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place.
  6. Five fold Ministry, Apostle, prophets, pastors, evangelists, teachers for the maturing of the churchEph 4:11-12 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers,  to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ,
  7. The spiritual gifts1Co 12:4-11 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; 5 and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; 6  and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. 7  To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. 8  For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, 9  to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, 10  to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11  All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills.
  8. Spiritual fruit from our lives,

Gal 5:22-23  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23  gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

 

  1. The New Testament writings and eventually the complete Bible into the hands of believers.Gal 1:12 I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.
  2. The Great commission to ALL beleivers, go spread the Good News!!!

With all these empowered benefits and awesome changes, the message is GREAT NEWS!!

Mark 16:15-20  And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. 

  1. The Veil has been tornAny Separation of the OT is now removed through Christ, God rendered His garments as a High Priest would rend his garments in grief and lamenting. No more separation between God, now He is closer than you could image!! Draw near to Him.

    Luke 23:45 Then the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two.

 

When I list all of these benefits, how many of these benefits do you agree have been under attack and questioned within the church?

We don’t believe that, or that, we need to get back to what the Word says….

 

John 7:37-39  On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. 38  Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” 39  Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
