Your first need and need is the forgiveness of eternal security sins, salvation and eternal life – “ Behold, the Lamb of God who has raised the sin of the world’।And he is atonement for our sins, and not only for us, but also for the sins of the whole world। The only Creator God – Ekmatra Caste Man – Ekkatra Blood Red – Ekkatra Problem Sin – Ekkatra Solution Jesus Christ Do you know that there is eternal life even after the deer only God loves you !

Behold the Lamb of God, Which Taketh Away the Sin of the Worl

Behold the Lamb of God, Which Taketh Away the Sin of the Worl

  • God Will Provide “Himself” a Lamb – In Gen 22:12 we learn about how God tested Abraham with regard to his son, Isaac: “And it came to pass after these thingsthat God did tempt Abrahamand said unto himAbrahamand he saidBeholdhere I amAnd he saidTake now thy sonthine only son Isaacwhom thou lovestand get thee into the land of Moriahand offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of”. In order to appreciate the significance of this severe test, we must consider what led up to this. Many years before, God had promised a son to Abraham and Sarah. We know from the Bible that Abraham was 86 years old when Ishmael was born – a result of Sarah giving her Egyptian handmaidHagar, to Abraham in the hope of achieving conception, which did take place. However, when Abraham was 99 years old and Sarah was 90, God informed them in Gen 17:21, “But my covenant will I establish with Isaacwhich Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year”. That was just as God had indicated to them initially. The reason God did this was to show that his salvation program would be established through the son of promise (pointing spiritually to Jesus Christ as the Savior) and not by the son after the flesh – a picture of salvation by works as we learn from Gal 4:2223: “For it is writtenthat Abraham had two sonsthe one by a bondmaidthe other by a freewomanBut he who was of the bondwoman was born after the fleshbut he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegoryfor these are the two covenants”. The Bible also highlights the fact that Isaac was indeed a gift – a “miracle baby”, if you will – as Rom 4:1921 teaches: “And being not weak in faithhe [Abraham] considered not his own body now deadwhen he was about an hundred years oldneither yet the deadness of Saras wombHe staggered not at the promise of God through unbeliefbut was strong in faithgiving glory to GodAnd being fully persuaded thatwhat he[God]had promisedhe was able also to perform”. But, now God is telling Abraham to take this son of promiseIsaac, and kill him! Notice how quickly Abraham obeys Gods command in Gen 22:35. In the historical setting and from a human perspective, this seems to be such an unemotional, matter-of-fact conversation between Abraham and Isaac. After all, God had instructed Abraham to kill his son and offer him as a burnt offering, and they have been carrying wood for the fire on a three-day journey at this time. Finally, Isaac asks his father, “Where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” Then Abraham’s answer “God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering” indicates his great faith in Gods promise to establish an everlasting covenant with his seed, as we read in Gen 17:19. What constantly amazes and humbles me (and if you are a parent, you can certainly identify with this) is that God did not require Abraham to actually sacrifice his “only son… whom thou lovest”, yet God [Jehovahjirehwillingly offered up His only begotten Sonthe Lord Jesus Christto pay the equivalent of eternal Hell for each child of God.

Gen 22:35: “And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him… And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offeringand laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together. And Isaac spake unto Abraham his fatherand saidMy fatherand he saidHere am Imy sonAnd he saidBehold the fire and the woodbut where is the lamb for a burnt offering?”

Gen 22:914 “And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his sonand laid him on the altar upon the woodAnd Abraham stretched forth his handand took the knife to slay his son. And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I. And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the ladneither do thou any thing unto himfor now I know that thou fearest Godseeing thou hast not withheld thy sonthine only son from me. And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ramand offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh [LORD will provide]: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.”

  • The Sacrificial Substitute – In the study on the sacrifice of Isaac upon Mount Moriah, we considered Gen 22:4, “Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyesand saw the place afar off”. In the historical context, this was indicating that Mount Moriah could be seen in the distance. Notice how John 19:20 says, “… the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city…” What transpired in both accounts are intimately related.  This agrees with the language of Heb 13:1113, which declares that he had to be crucified outside the city gates, having become spiritually polluted and a curse: “For the bodies of those beastswhose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sinare burned without the campWherefore Jesus alsothat he might sanctify the people with his own bloodsuffered without the gateLet us go forth therefore unto him without the campbearing his reproach”. Indeed, the Lord Jesus Christ was the spiritual fulfillment of Gen 22:13 “… the ram caught in a thicket by his horns…” as He hung on the Crossas the Lamb of God , “…slain before the foundation of the world”. In fact both the rams horns and the altar which Abraham built in Gen 22:9 are ceremonialobservances which identify altogether with Christ. It was on the altar that most of the sacrificed animals were placed for offerings to the LORD. The first time the word “altar” is used in the Bible is right after all the animals left Noahs Ark after the worldwide Flood in Gen 8:20: “And Noah builded an altar unto the LORDand took of every clean beastand of every clean fowland offered burnt offerings on the altar”. Of course, the altar and all the Old Testament animal sacrifices pointed to the Lord Jesus Christthe Lamb of God. Thus, Jesus had to “go unto the altar of God” as the Ultimate Sacrifice for the sins of His people, according to Heb 9:2426.

John 19:1720 “And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew GolgothaWhere they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst. And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.”

Heb 9:2426: “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which arethe figures of the truebut into heaven itself, now to appearin the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself”.

  • Passover Lamb of God – It is extremely significant that as the lambs were being slain in the temple for the Jewish Passover, that the Lord Jesus Christ – the Lamb of God, Who was “slain from the foundation of the world” – was hanging on the Cross. He was fulfilling all the particulars related to the Passover lamb, which God had expressed in the Exo 12:514. At the time when Israel departed out Egypt, it was the Passoverit was the blood of the lamb applied to the door post that would cause God to skip over the judgement. This is what the word “passover” actually means, “to leap”, “to go over”. Actually, it all pointed to Jesusthe Lamb of God, as John the Baptist announced, “Behold the Lamb of Godwhich taketh away the sin of the world”. When Abraham was ready to offer up Isaac, remember what Abraham said to Isaac?, “God will provide Himself a lamb”. Lord Jesus Christ is that “Lamb”. Concerning the Lord Jesus, we read in Acts 10:43, “… through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission [forgivenessof sins”. This is how a sinner — and it is the only way — can escape the judgment of God. It is only through His blood that anyone can find forgiveness and have their sins washed away and be cleansed. The Passover lamb in Exo 12:5 was to be “without blemish” because it symbolized the perfect nature and work of the Lord Jesus Christ: “Your lamb shall be without blemisha male of the first yearye shall take it out from the sheepor from the goats”. This typology is confirmed in the New Testament by 1 Pet 1:1819, that we were redeemed “with the precious blood of Christas of a lamb without blemish and without spot”. In Heb 5:1 we learn the purpose of burnt offerings and sacrifices, “For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to Godthat he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins …” Nonetheless, all of those sacrifices commanded by God in the Old Testament merely served as sign posts to illustrate a deeper spiritual reality which was yet to appear, the Lord Jesus Christ (Heb 10:810), as we find stated in Gal 4:4. Undoubtedly they speak of the Lord Jesus Christ, Who had to become sin offering for His people, and then had to endure the flames of Gods eternal justice on their behalf. He was the “burnt offering” to redeem wicked, rebellious sinners. He was forsakenbyHis Fatherandbecame a curse in order to mediate an eternal peacebetweenHoly Godandfallen manHeb 10:8 declares, “Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest notneither hadst pleasure therein” and Isa 53:10 asserts that God is pleasedwith only one sacrifice, “Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him [Lord Jesus]; he hath put him to griefwhen thou shalt make his soul an offering for sinhe shall see his seedhe shall prolong his daysand the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand”. 

Exo 12:514 “Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats… and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. And they shall take of the bloodand strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it… it is the LORDs passover. For I will pass through the land of Egypt this nightand will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egyptboth man and beastand against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgmentI am the LORDAnd the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye areand when I see the bloodI will pass over youand the plague shall not be upon you to destroy youwhen I smite the land of Egypt. And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generationsye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.”

Isa 53:7 “He was oppressed, and he was afflictedyet he opened not his mouthhe is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth”.

1 Cor 5:7Purge out therefore the old leaventhat ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feastnot with old leavenneither with the leaven of malice and wickednessbut with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth”.

  • Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world – Isa 59:2 reveals our true spiritual condition that has been caused by our sin: “But your iniquities have separated between you and your Godand your sins have hid his face from youthat he will not hear”. Psa 130:4 records an amazing concept: “But there is forgiveness with theethat thou mayest be feared”. Dan 9:9 describes why this is so incredible: “To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenessesthough we have rebelled against him”. Unbelievable as it sounds, forgiveness first originated with God Himself although we have rebelled against him. The Bible teaches much about forgiveness and how it is intimately associated with blood atonement. But why blood atonement? In Lev 17:11 we find this principle, “For the life of the flesh is in the bloodand I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your soulsfor it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul”. This explains why the Old Testament is replete with account of lambsoxen, and turtledoves which were sacrificed on the altar in the temple – like in an animal “slaughter house” – on a daily basis. We also read in the New Testament, in Heb 9:22, “And almost all things are by the law purged with bloodand without shedding of blood is no remission [forgiveness]”. But what kind of sacrifice is God looking for – an animal sacrifice of some kind? Not at all. We find the answer to this question in Mic 6:7, “Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of ramsor with ten thousands of rivers of oil?…”. We also read in Heb 9:4, “For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins”. So, if God is not concerned with the shedding of an animal’s blood, then what kind of blood is He looking for? The Lord Jesus was typified by all of the mandatory animal sacrifices throughout the Old Testament, but none is more closely associated with the Savior than the Passover Lamb, to which John alludes under Divine Inspiration. We know from Heb 10:12, “But this man [the Lord Jesus], after he had offered one sacrificefor sinsfor eversat down on the right hand of God”. For this reason, we understand why the Lord Jesus Christ is “the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Rev 13:8). Notice the emphasis that is placed on the timing of this wonderful Salvation Plan, “from the foundation of the world” – In principle, the Lord Jesus Christ paid for the sins of His people even before He created this magnificently complex universe. Christ is indeed “the mediator of the new covenantand to the blood of sprinklingthat speaketh better things than that of Abel”, as Heb 12:24 tells us. We read in Gen 17:19: “And God saidSarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeedand thou shalt call his name Isaacand I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenantand with his seed after him”. We know from Gal 3:16 that the “Seed” in view is physically the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the “the Lamb of Godwhich taketh away the sin of the world” (according to John 1:29) as declared by John the BaptistGal 3:16 declares: “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises madeHe saith notAnd to seedsas of manybut as of oneAnd to thy seedwhich is Christ”. The “covenant” is actually the Gospel itself, which concerns itself with the forgiveness of a personsinRev 21:9b11 speaks of the heirs of salvation as the Bride of Christ – the Lamb of God – Who is the principal Heir. One of the most interesting accounts of the New Testament is found in Luke 4, where Jesus enters the temple in Nazareth. He is handed the Book of Isaiah, and He turns to Isaiah 61 and reads verses 1 and 2, as we find quoted in Luke 4:1819 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon mebecause he hath anointed me… to preach deliverance [forgivenessto the captives …”. As we look to the Bible to learn about this wonderful forgiveness that God has provided, may we be compelled to examine our own hearts to see how we stand before God. Have we received His incomprehensible forgiveness? If we have, are we sharing the Gospel of Christ with others so they, too, may also come to know His marvelous forgiveness? Heb 13:2021 is a beautiful benediction for us to meditate on as we bring this lesson to a close: “Now the God of peacethat brought again from the dead our Lord Jesusthat great shepherd of the sheepthrough the blood of the everlasting covenantMake you perfect in every good work to do his willworking in you that which is wellpleasing in his sightthrough Jesus Christto whom be glory for ever and everAmen.”

Mic 6:67 “Wherewith shall I come before the, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offeringswith calves of a year oldWill the Lord be pleased with thousands of ramsor with ten thousands of rivers of oilshall I give my firstborn for my transgressionthe fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?”

Heb 10:14 “For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. 2For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. 3But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. 4For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.”

Gal 4:4 “But when the fulness of the time was comeGod sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the lawthat we might receive the adoption of sons.”

Heb 10:1118 “And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrificeswhich can never take away sins: But this man[Lord Jesus Christ], after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for eversat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them after those dayssaith the LordI will put my laws into their heartsand in their minds will I write themAnd their sins and iniquities will I remember no moreNow where remission of these isthere is no more offering for sin.”

Luke 4:1819 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon mebecause he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance [forgivenessto the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”

Rev 21:9b11 “… Come hitherI will shew thee the bridethe Lambs wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great citythe holy Jerusalemdescending out of heaven from GodHaving the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most preciouseven like a jasper stoneclear as crystal.

For he that findeth me shall find life, and shall receive mercy from the Lord. But he that sinneth against me, harmeth his own soul; All those who hate me love death.’ Proverb. 8:35-36 But God shows his love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 He committed no sin, nor was any guile found in his mouth; He did not rebuke in return; He did not threaten when he suffered, but committed himself to the righteous judge. He Himself bore our sins in His own body on the cross, that we might die to sins and live to righteousness; By His stripes you were healed. 1 st. Proverb. 8:35-36 Nor is salvation in any other; For there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 Jesus said to him: “I am the way, the truth, and the life; No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 Behold, he comes with the clouds, and every eye shall see him, even those who despise him; And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of him. So be it! Amen! Revelation 1:7 And he was clothed in blood; And his name is called ‘Word of God’. Revelation 19:13 “And behold, I come quickly; And I have my reward to give to every man according to his work. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” Revelation 22:12-13 Note: Today people don’t even have time to go to heaven. Believe in Jesus Christ and you will receive forgiveness of sins, salvation and eternal life.
