Pastor Capelão Valni Borges
Ser cristão é mais do que apenas usar o nome de Cristo. O verdadeiro cristão: É alguém que é nascido de Deus: "Os quais não nasceram do sangue, nem da vontade da carne, nem da vontade do homem, mas de Deus". (João 1:13). "Sendo de novo gerados, não de semente corruptível, mas da incorruptível, pela palavra de Deus, viva, e que permanece para sempre". (1ª Pedro 1:23).
RECONCILIATION OF SINNER BY SPRAY BLOOD OF CHRIST.
In the beginning God created heaven and earth and planetary system, and beasts, and said, Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and rule over the fish, birds, and everything that moves on the earth .
And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the earth, and put him in the Garden of Eden to till and keep, and God commanded the man to eat of every tree of the garden freely, but warned: the tree of knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat, for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die (Genesis 2:16, 17).
The dust of the earth God created man in his image, after his likeness, and put it into a paradise to live in abundance of goods, prosperity was not an ideal to be achieved, but a reality to be apossada to enjoy the wonders available. God gave him power to rule over all things, the Lord God had created the ideal conditions for man to live in bliss forever.
God created man free and ordered store Paradise, gave him authority over the work of the devil, and warned: the tree of knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die (Genesis 2:17 .)
However, it imposed conditions for obedience to man, He wanted to be respected for his love of creature, the fraternal bond of love between them. God gave you the option of choosing who wanted to plant the seed, put warning beforehand, that the harvest would be inevitable.
But the woman, sugestionada by the serpent (the devil), indiscreet in knowing that the Lord God had forbidden, aspiring to be like God, and seeing the tree desirable, pleasing to the eye, she took of its fruit and ate, and gave also unto her her husband also, and he ate (Genesis 3:6). Sin had been consummated, and death by sin entered the man. The paradise that God had entrusted to man to guard and protect, he had just delivered to Satan, subjecting themselves to it and come to be your slave.
The promise of living eternally had ended at the time practiced sin. The man was dead, not only spiritually, but also physical death, for this reason the Lord's word in Romans 6:23 says the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is life everlasting life.
God cursed the serpent and said: I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed: it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel (Genesis 3:15). The stewardship the Lord has prepared for the man had also finished in Genesis 3:19 God said: In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the earth, because it wast thou taken, for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou make . His physical death was also determined.
And the curse of the earth, came all the misfits who live today, the man was vulnerable to illnesses, aches and pains. Hunger, misery and anguish have become part of everyday life, Satan had dominion over the man who went to live under the curse of sin. From now dominating slave status, possession of Satan's power of death, began to plague and plague mankind.
The man, the greatest work of God's hands on earth, so much did his own image, after his likeness, God's love for this creature is something immeasurable, the Lord comes as the apple of his eye, the Lord God could have abandoned him in his sin by disobedience and rebellion, but did not, despite their sadness and frustration, not given to give you a new opportunity for salvation, even for that pay the highest price, the price of the blood of his own son.
The Lord had prepared a plan to restore their reconciliation (Genesis 3:15), offered his only son in expiation, although it had to spill blood to redeem man from the curse of sin and will again offer deliverance and eternal life.
The exhortation is a warning to be alert, Satan came to kill, steal and destroy, and contrary to what many think, it dawns so chilling, with horns, pitchfork, spreading fire everywhere. It seeps subtly, so disguised, looking a fruit good for food, pleasing to the eye, desirable, and not let us realize that this fruit with nice appearance is a trap that will lead to death, not just death stuff, but mostly spiritual death, and many, not watch, have been succumbed by the cunning of the devil.
CONCERT OF GOD WITH ABRAHAM
But God in his infinite mercy, even after man's disobedience, never stopped loving him, always trying to approach the man chose for himself a peculiar people, the descendants of the patriarch Abraham, our father in faith, to inherit promised land.
And in the book of Genesis 17.1-10, which chronicles being, Abram age of 99 years appeared to Abram, and said unto him, "I am God Almighty, walk before me and be blameless. And I will set my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying:
As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and will be the father of a multitude of nations. And no more be called thy name Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham, for a father of many nations have I made thee.
And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. This is my covenant, which keep between me and you and thy seed after thee, that every male shall be circumcised.
God also said to Abraham: Genesis 17.15-19: As for Sarai thy wife no longer call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name, because I will bless, and I will give thee a son by her, and bless and shall be a mother of nations, kings of people shall be of her (Genesis 17.15-19).
Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a man a hundred years ago a child be born? And Sara conceive the age of ninety? And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael live (Abraham's son by the handmaid Hagar) before thee!
And God said to Abraham: Actually, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son, and shalt call his name Isaac: and he will establish my covenant for an everlasting covenant for his seed after him. And as for Ishmael I have heard you, Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and I will make it multiply exceedingly, twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. "My concert, but establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will give you at this set time next year"
Sacrifices and burnt offerings did not please GOD
What separated the people of Israel, the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and gave them a law by the ministry of his servant Moses, and the law, a shadow of things to come, and not the very image of the things, as indicated that only through the shedding of blood (Leviticus Chapter 1, 3, 4 ...) we would be reconciled to God and would reach salvation of eternal life.
The high priest went alone into the temple once a year, not without blood, offered sacrifice for himself and for the sins of ignorance of the people. But the burnt offerings and sacrifices did not please the Lord, who said:
I Samuel 15:22 - Has perchance the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice.
Isaiah 1:11 - What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices? Says the Lord. I am full of the burnt offerings of rams and the fat of fed beasts, and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
From the Old Testament, men who feared and loved God sought to please him with burnt offerings and atonement of animals, having been established by law that sacrifice, which came as a symbolism of the things that were to happen, and by the sacrifices of animals, the Lord appeared beforehand atonement of the blood of his son Jesus Christ who should come to redeem man from sin, and to offer them eternal life. Consider:
Hebrews 9:11, 12 - But Christ being come an high priest of good future, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is, not of this creation, neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood entered once in the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption.
PROMISE OF A REDEEMER
Isaiah 9.6 - For a child is born to us, a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace
Luke 1:32, 33 - will be great and will be called Son of the Highest: and the Lord God will give Him the throne of David his father, and he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end. Truly, Himself took our infirmities and carried our sorrows bore; smitten of God and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.
Walked like sheep going astray, each of us has turned to his own way, but the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. He was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth, like a lamb, was led to the slaughter, and as a sheep is silent before its shearers, he opened not his mouth. (Isaiah 53.4 to 7).
The Lord God knew that without shedding of blood there would be no salvation, then God Himself came in the likeness of men (John 1:1, 14). The word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies, how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God.
And so is the mediator of the New Testament, because where there is a testament, it is necessary that the death of the testator. Because a will only have force after men are dead, or have it at all while the testator liveth?
Light has dawned BETWEEN THE DARKNESS
Matthew 4:16, 17 says: The people which sat in darkness saw great light: and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up. From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, Repent, because now is the kingdom of heaven.
Man, by his rebellion had contracted a debt to God, and God looking down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek; strayed all together become filthy: there is none that doeth well, there is even one.
However, Jesus Christ, sinless, was under no obligation to pay the debt of man, but by his obedience to the Father, offered Himself as a living sacrifice to redeem us from all sin. The good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
The Kingdom of Christ was established on earth, having been anointed by God with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him (Acts 10:38).
Held a work odd, never seen on earth, healings, miracles, wonders, salvation, and announced worldwide repentance, conversion deliverance, hope of eternal life, by the sprinkling of his own blood.
THE TRIUMPH OF CHRIST ON THE CROSS
And having come to your time, to fulfill the Word, was betrayed by one of the twelve, being arrested and brought before the high priest and king, there began the most terrible and cruel judgment of history. The fair, paying the debt of the sinner, suffering, anguish and lots of great pain, but he did not open his mouth.
A man of sorrows, living sacrifice for the forgiveness of our sins, was humiliated and several of the most terrible forms. With all the power to transform the universe into tiny particles, or nothing, the Father asked revenge, asked them to forgive, leaving himself, the greatest example of kindness and humility, because forgiveness is sublime. God sent his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him
Esau, for a bit of morsel of meat sold his birthright to right, and when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears (Hebrews 12:16, 17).
The man, being dead in the curse of sin, the Lord had placed angels guarding the way to the tree of life, which is the paradise that Christ promised to the man who was crucified beside him, for his humility and repentance. And, by the blood of Christ, the man has had access to forgiveness and salvation to eternal life.
In Romans 3:20, the Word says that no flesh be justified in his sight by observing the law, because the law comes the knowledge of sin, making it necessary that God himself became man and dwelt among us (John 1:14) , who gave his life a living sacrifice on the cross for the forgiveness of our sins, and rose again the third day for the hope of our salvation (Romans 4:25).
And today, by the sprinkling of his blood, we place of repentance, Christ took upon himself the sin of the world (Isaiah chapter 53), opened the door of paradise and we were enemies of God, we were reconciled by the death of his son, and, by his blood restored peace between God and man.
The word of the Lord in the book of Isaiah Chapter 53.3 says that Jesus Christ was a man of sorrows. Being Christ hanging on the cross with a crown of thorns stuck in his head, had more than three hours, being humiliated, mocked, scourged, at one point cried unto the Father:
My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? The sin of the world weighed on Ele.Cristo distressed but was not afraid and did not even flinch, volunteering with strong crying and tears, prayers and supplications to the one who could save him from death, and was heard in that he feared. Having thirst, they gave him vinegar. And when all was finished, Jesus bowed his head and gave up his spirit to the Father
The prophecies had been fulfilled, the innocent Lamb, by the sprinkling of his blood, had annihilated sin, Satan was ultimately defeated. Christ triumphed over death nailing it to the cross, the sin that separated the home of God and was destroyed by his blood, reconciled man to God.
The moment that Christ surrendered his spirit to God, the temple veil that separated the holy place from the most holy place, where only the priest entered once a year to sacrifice to God for himself and for the sins of all people, tore up the high to low, because a new veil had been torn, that is, the flesh of Christ to free us from the law of sin and death that separated man from God, being justified freely by the sprinkling of his blood and by his grace, the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
The man who was sentenced to death for the sin of Eden, was reconciled to God by the sprinkling of the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, who opened the door of heaven and granted to the sinner, who by repentance and conversion, reach the glory of eternal life .
Knowing that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish or defect.
