“Therefore,He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.” Hebrews 7:25
The word SAVED means to be delivered from any kind of evil but when SAVED is used in regard to God’s salvation it’s true meaning is deliverance and preservation from all the consequences of sin. In this sense SAVED means to be delivered and preserved from the penalty of sin and the power of sin.
The angel of the Lord told Joseph, “…And you shall call His name JESUS: for He will save His people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21) Notice the word is SINS.(plural) Jesus not only saves from the penalty of SIN but He saves us from the particular SINS that hold us in their bondage. Jesus said, “… whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.” John 8:34
Jesus went on to say, “Therefore If the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” John 8:36. When Jesus saves, He breaks the power of sin, Satan, and demons. The saved sinner now has the power to say “no” to the things they should not do and “yes” to the things they should. Jesus saves from the power of sin.
Psalms 110:4 “The LORD hath sworn, and will not relent, You are a priest forever according the order of Melchizadek.” As the Great High Priest Jesus is able to save lost souls from the curse of the law and bring them into the family of God.
Hebrews speaks of this priestly sacrifice: “…when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.” In Hebrews 2:9 we read the reason for His coming: “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that He by the grace of God might taste death for everyone.” Peter referred to this sacrifice in I Peter 2:24 when he wrote, “Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree” And again, “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God…” I Peter 3:18.
Who was delivered up because of our offences, and was raised because of our justification.” Romans 4:25. (See also 1st Corinthians 15:l7)
When Jesus offered Himself as a sacrifice for our sin His body was laid in a grave. When He came forth the third day this was the divine authentication that God the Father had accepted His sacrifice. Each one of us can be sure that Jesus Christ’s sacrifice for our sin has satisfied the Father.
Jesus Is The Intercessor Between God and Man
“…Since He always lives to make intercession for them.” Hebrews 7:35
Intercession means: “Who is he who condemns? It is Christ Who died, and furthermore is also risen, Who is even at the right hand of God, Who also makes intercession for us.” Romans 8:34
“My little children, these things I write to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the righteous: and He Himself is the propitiation (sacrifice) for our sins…” 1st John 2: 1,:2a.
“…the accuser of our brethren, who accuses them before our God day and night have been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony and they did not love their lives to the death.” Revelation 12:10b, 11.
“Who gave himself for our sins that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”—Galatians 1:4,-5.
(Col 1:12-14) Giving thanks unto the Father, which HAS MADE us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who HAS delivered us from the power of darkness, and HAS translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we HAVE redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
How do you recieve deliverance from sin? BY FAITH AND NOT THE WORKS OF THE LAW!
Jesus came to set us free from sin today, tommorrow and every day! JESUS IS THE KEEPER OF YOUR SOUL! He has promised and is faithful to keep his promise!
If we are baptized into Christ WE HAVE put on Christ. So now we are in the Spirit and in newness of life!
We ARE CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST…..RECKON YOURSELVES DEAD WITH HIM! DEAD TO SIN BUT ALIVE TO GOD! HOW??? by faith! IT IS A DONE DEAL. WALK IN IT! YEILD MEANS TO SURRENDER, GIVE UP STRIVING, GIVE UP SELF EFFORT, GIVE UP WORKS, AND LET GO AND LET GOD BE YOUR SAVIOUR FROM SIN!
PRAY GOD’S WORD, AND LIVE GOD’S WORD! THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, WILL KEEP YOU AND PERSERVE YOU UNTO HIS HEAVENLY KINGDOM.
YOU ARE NO LONGER A SERVANT OF SIN BUT A SERVANT OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
ROMANS 6 …NO LAW KEEPING….JUST GRACE.
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
FOR HE THAT IS DEAD IS FREE FROM SIN!!! Sin no longer has dominion(rule) over us !
“Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. 13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
FOR SIN SHALL NOT HAVE DOMINION OVER YOU: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
