He offered the final and last blood sacrifice, so that people could be reconciled to God.
Why did this have to be done this way?
I don't really know it doesn't make any sense to me, it seems like God could of just said you people are forgiven instead of having God the son come down as a human and die for us.
I really don't get it, but God required it and I believe his will is perfect even though I don't understand it all.
The point in everything is to believe God even if it sometimes doesn't make sense. Remember, in revelation John was told not to give a testimony of some things he witnesses, I'm thinking those have to do with the mystery of God's will
There is a great deal of error in your response.
Needless to say your salvation is the Body and Blood of Jesus and if you dont understand the atoning principles of salvation what does that say about your salvation?
I understand what Jesus did, but I am not God. I don't know why he required God the son to come in the flesh and then die on a cross, rise again and then ascend to the right hand of God in the throne in heaven.
I just don't get why he just didn't say okay all you people are forgiven. I understand the old testament and the new, but it still doesn't make sense to me.
However; I believe in God and I trust in his will and in God even if it doesn't make sense.
Are you telling me that you understand every verse in the bible? Are you telling me that you understand the complete will of God?
It is not about UNDERSTANDING EVERYTHING it is about yielding and bowing down and SEEKING God and not yielding to our own understanding.
Yes I know the biblically principles of sacrifice and atonement and salvation etc, but it just doesn't make sense. However; if you have ears to hear listen to what I am saying.
Jesus is my God and savior and I seek him and serve him and love him and believe him, and believe what he did and has done.
If you know God's will perfectly and can calculate his every move good for you.
