Sean this is love2019,… I couldn’t see how to reply to you, so I am doing it this way. I hope you see this soon. Thank you for responding to my question. There was quite a bit to process.
Jesus saved us from sin, death, the wrath to come and hell.
Yes, He is King of kings, voluntarily laying down his life ( the garden of Gethsemane notwithstanding).
I think the distinction was helpful, he is no mere human. He was the God-man.
But you said He shed blood but God’s purpose was not to shed blood…
The Bible does say ‘without the shedding of blood there is no remission.’
And in another place ‘because it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins’
I can understand the second statement in light of the first.
But it’s the first state I can’t understand.
I guess I am asking ‘Why is that true?’
Why is it that without the shedding of blood there no remission?
Maybe I’m asking a question, the answer to which is hidden in the mind of the Father.
‘Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he has put him to grief: when thou shalt make
his soul an offering for sin…’ Isaiah 53:10a.
Why is the shedding of blood necessary?
Peace and Blessings
