Yeshua (Hebrew name for Jesus) did a lot through GOD he ended the daily sacrifice and the old covenant, Jesus as a mediator gave us direct access to The Most High we just need to pray in the name of Jesus Christ, we now have everlasting life, salvation through Jesus Christ, Jesus also opened up the Book of seven seals leading to the destruction of babylon, the end of days, and finally the rule of The Kingdom of GOD on earth forever.
Jesus Christ as a mediator for us according to 1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
Hebrews 12:24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling...
The sprinkling of blood is needed for cleansing Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: ..Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
The shedding of blood is symbolic of death because rebellion and sin was death. They were not to be taken lightly. In order for the Israelites to gain forgiveness, something had to die. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. It was serious. In order to avoid their own destruction because of their sin, the Israelites had to offer something innocent to die in their place, an animal without blemish.
Unfortunately, this was not enough. the animal died in place of the sinner, but only temporarily, which is why the sacrifices needed to be offered over and over. Hebrews 9:25 Nor vet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;.. Hebrews 10: 3-4 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. The sinful nature of the Israelites led them to sin again and again. No amount of animal blood could completely wash them clean or pay for the death price they owed.
The centuries of animal blood weren't the only thing that pointed to a need for something greater. The nation of Israel quickly fell apart, and its history was checkered with war, oppression, and serious immorality. God' s chosen people were a disaster. None of the Israelites were righteous according to Romans 3:10-12 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
GOD out of love and mercy prepared for us a perfect sacrifice offering to cleanse us from our sins once and for all Jesus Christ came as the Lamb of GOD He was the perfect sacrifice without blemish. As the animals offered had to be pure, He was perfect, without sin. And as death was required, someone had to die. The blood of life had to be poured out on the dead, and the Lamb had to take on the sin of the people.
John 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
Now we no longer need any other offerings for sin because Jesus sacrificed his life for us once and for all, then raised from from the dead and lives for ever
Hebrews 10:12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
Hebrews 10:18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
Yeshua is also the chief cornerstone which is the first stone placed that holds Temple of GOD which is us together. He is the light that guides us to a straight path whenever we are in darkness.
Ephesians 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
We have Everlasting salvation because Jesus on our behalf advocates for us unto GOD if we sin.
1 John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
This not being an excuse for liberty to sin because the Lord knows our heart
We have Eternal life, Jesus Christ says in John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (those that have died before the Final Judgement will be ressurected and judged by their works in Revelations 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened:...) (the books keep record of what we have done)
We have a new covenant through Jesus Christ Hebrews 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
The Old Covenant GOD made with Israel required the Israelites to follow HIS Laws in order to be HIS chosen people forever Israel would become a powerful nation take the best land for themselves and be protected from all their enemies. If Israel did not obey GOD they would be punished. Israel agreed. Now they constantly broke the Laws of GOD and they were punished again and again finally sentenced to babylon until now.
Therefore it became known that under the Law, disobedience was sin and the punishment of sin is death, The Law of GOD is good but without grace and mercy for those that broke the law no one could be right with GOD. And therefore the Israelites could not come close to GOD our Father without Jesus. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. How could we the Israelites have a prayer for GOD to deliver us and be with us in journey to leave babylon and return to the Promised Land safely if we are not right with GOD?
Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The answer is we can never be right with GOD without forgiveness for our sins, and grace so we receive Jesus Christ. Ephesians 1:7 in whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
With Jesus Christ now as our Redeemer we are no longer under the law and therefore we are free from sin
Romans 6:22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
Yeshua opened the book in the right hand of GOD that releases the Final Judgement upon the wicked allowing the Israelites to reign on earth.
Revelation 5 1-9 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb,... And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
