Download Notes

That there is one Lord Jesus Christ
(Ephesians 4:4-6; 1 Corinthians 8:6),

the Son of the Eternal Father
(John 5:18; 1 John 5:11, 13),

the one by whom He created all things
(Hebrews 1:1-2),

and by whom they do consist
(Colossians 1:17);

that He took on Him the nature of the seed of Abraham for the redemption of our fallen race
(Hebrews 2:14-18);

that He dwelt among men, full of grace and truth
(John 1:1, 14, 17),

lived our example, died our sacrifice
(John 13:15; 1 Peter 2:21-25),

was raised for our justification
(Romans 4:23-25),

ascended on high to be our only mediator in the sanctuary in heaven
(Psalm 68:18; Ephesians 4:8; 1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 8:1-5, 9:23-24; Psalm 102:19-22;
Revelation 15:5),

where, through the merits of His shed blood, He secures the pardon and forgiveness of the sins of
all those who penitently come to Him
(Matthew 11:28-30, 26:28; Ephesians 1:6-7);

and as the closing portion of His work as a priest, before He takes His throne as king, He will
make the great atonement for the sins of all such, and their sins will then be blotted out
(Hebrews 3:1, 4:14-15, 5:10, 7:26; Matthew 19:28, 25:31; Acts 3:19),

and borne away from the sanctuary, as shown in the service of the Levitical priesthood, which
foreshadowed and prefigured the ministry of our Lord in Heaven
(Leviticus 16).
