ATONEMENT BY CHRIST ALONE

 

The Bible tells us we are atoned by the the work and sacrifice of Christ on the CROSS AT CALVARY. Some folk try to find atonement by other means but we are told by God’s word that it is through Christ alone. Today I share the following verses with you telling us that truth.

John 1:29

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

29 The next day he *saw Jesus coming to him and *said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

36 and he looked at Jesus as He walked, and *said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!”

Acts 4:10-12

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that [a]by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—[b]by [c]this name this man stands here before you in good health. 11 [d]He is the stone which was rejected by you, the builders, but which became the chief corner stone. 12 And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”

1 Thessalonians 1:10

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

10 and to wait for His Son from [a]heaven, whom He raised from the dead, that is Jesus, who rescues us from the wrath to come.

1 Timothy 2:5-6

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

5 For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony [a]given at [b]the proper time.

    Hebrews 2:9

    New American Standard Bible (NASB)

    Jesus Briefly Humbled

    9 But we do see Him who was made [a]for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.

      1 Peter 2:24

      New American Standard Bible (NASB)

      24 and He Himself [a]bore our sins in His body on the [b]cross, so that we might die to [c]sin and live to righteousness; forby His [d]wounds you were healed.

Atonement Foreordained –Rom.3:25— Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

1 Peter 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. 20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

Rev.13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Atonement Foretold — Isaiah 53:4-6  –4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

John 11:50-51

50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

Romans 5:8-11

2 Corinthians 5:18-19

Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 to wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

Galatians 4:1

In the above verses we have atonement explained!
