Welcome to the second half of our study on the “Point of Salvation.”

Last week we concluded that it is a persons belief or faith in God that brings salvation.  The animal sacrifice was
symbolic to demonstrate one’s faith.

Now let’s read about the fulfillment of this sacrificial ritual.  Jesus came to put an end to this ritual.  He was the
final sacrifice, ever.

1 Peter 1:18  For you know it was not with perishable things such as silver and gold that you were redeemed from
the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb
without blemish or defect.

Romans 3:25  God presented himself as a sacrifice of atonement through faith in his blood.

Hebrews 7:27  Unlike the other priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and
then for the sins of the people.  He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself.

Hebrews 9:25  Nor did he enter heaven to offer himself again and again, the way the high priests enter the
Most Holy Place every year with the blood that is not his own.  Then Christ would have had to suffer many times
since the creation of the world.  But now he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to do away
with sin by the sacrifice of himself.

Hebrews 10:11  Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties;  again and again he offers
the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.  But when this priest (Jesus) had offered for all
time one sacrifice (himself) for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God. 

Jesus was the last and best sacrifice for the sins of mankind.

Next week we will continue our reading about Jesus as the final sacrifice.  This will lead us to what actually
happens at the Point of Salvation.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
