Jesus Christ Our Passover
The Ultimate Payment For Sin
Will the movie, "The Passion of Jesus Christ,"
displaying Christ's ultimate payment for man's sins, produce a real change
in today's Christian community of sinners?
Today's Christian community of sinners is what all of today's professing Christians admit and confess that they still are.
If you don't believe this ask them and see what their answer is! Yes,
they will say that they are still sinners. There is no place, no position,
no state in one's life that is worse than being a sinner or even worse continuing
to be a sinner as all of today's professing Christians admit they are and
continuing to be. All or most all will admit that they daily sin or from
time to time will transgress God's 10 commandments which is God's definition
of sin, I John 3:4. Now if they know that they daily sin, then they must
know what commandment they are transgressing, because transgressing
of God's law is what defines sin. In other words they are willfully
committing sins, who knowingly are breaking God's 10 commandments, which is sin and
so are still sinners as they confess they are. So today's confessing Christians
have a very serious problem for their lives, because God says the payment for unrepentant
sin is death, Rom. 6:23.
Paul's teaching in Heb. 10:26 "For if we sin willfully
after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, (the truth about
what is sin and why Christ died) there remains no more sacrifice for sins." This
means for every true Christian that continues to commit wilfull sins, which
are sins that you are knowingly committing and will not repent, which are
sins you will not change your heart to stop committing and be obedient
to God's 10 commandments then there is no more of having Christ's
sacrifice, His broken, bruised body and shed blood that will cover over, passover, to forgive your sins. Everybody's
Bible says the payment for sin is death, Rom. 6:23.
In plain words the payment for every person, who is continuing
in his sins is death, not eternal life in God's Kingdom. The Word of God
stands as a true witness against you and your continual sinning. It demands
death for the sinner. Yet, today's professing Christians openly confess they
are still sinners, but through their acceptance of today's Christian false
and seducing teaching and preaching, believe they are saved by grace. Christ's
Grace does not apply and will not be given unless there is a complete and
full and total repentance of transgressing God's 10 commandments. This repentance
must be followed with total obedience in a person's life that keeps all 10
of God's commandments. This obedience to God's commandments through the power
of God's Holy Spirit will bear and produce the love that God desires toward
Him and to Jesus Christ and toward one's neighbor or his brother or sister
who has Christ living in them.
All of today's false Christians have been led by their
false ministers, and there is a world of those false ministers out in the confessed Christian
community, who believe that the false Christ that they serve will save them
by His mercy and grace without their repentance of having to cease to continue
to be a sinner. Read our article "By Their Fruits" for greater understanding about bearing the fruit Christ demands of His true disciples.
Today's confessing Christians have
all been taught by all of the false ministers that no one can live a changed life, a new born
again spiritual life, without continuing to willfully commit sins and iniquities. This is a huge lie in today's Christian community of teaching.
Really, is this lie the teaching of Jesus Christ and His Word, pertaining to the purpose of His death,
His sufferings, His resurrection and His Gospel? Is this what Jesus Christ
had on His mind and what were His thoughts while He was hanging on the cross
in excruciating, unbearable pain and suffering, while the last vestiges of
blood drained from His badly, torn apart, bruised and pierced body? Or was
He thinking, I am giving My life in love as the one time sacrifice, as the
ultimate payment for all men's sins, but only for those who will humble
themselves (very difficult for today's proud people) and will repent of transgressing My 10 commandments and law, and
accept My payment for the penalty of their sins and iniquities.
Christ continues to say as the results of a sinner's total and complete repentance
that He will send the comforter, My Holy Spirit, as my promise to help them
to keep my 10 commandments that will help them bear the fruit of love, so
they can truly love one another, John 14:15-17; 15:10-26; 16:13.
This is the power of God working in a Christian life that today's false preachers
do not believe, accept and even deny it as God's power to help a true Christian keep
His commandments to produce and bear His love in their life that He desires to be in each one of them, II Tim. 3:5.
Paul writes in Acts 3:26
"God, having raised up His son, Jesus Christ, sent Him to bless you, in turning
away every one of you from his iniquities." Are people being turned away
from their iniquities and sins through today's preachers and their watered
down messages, lacking in power, and even with a special effects movie about Christ's sufferings
and death? Jesus Christ did not go through all that He suffered and His death,
so people could continue in their sins, but to turn people away from their
sins and iniquities.
Without any question, most people do accept and believe that Jesus
Christ suffered and died for their sins and iniquities. As Scripture says in Isa.53:5 "He was wounded for our transgressions (transgressions of God's 10 commandments)
bruised for our iniquities (iniquities meaning the wickedness of lawless people ignorant of and not even mindful of God's
law and their transgressing of His 10 commandments) and sins (people's transgressions of
However, the truth is always
missing in today's preaching, and teachings, and movies about the true understanding
of Christ's death by not presenting the truth that Jesus Christ's sufferings, His stripes, and His terrible
blood letting, crucifixion was given for the ultimate payment
of a sinner's sins (commandment transgressions) if each sinner will repent
and accept it, otherwise every sinner, who will not repent will be judged
for his own sins with his own blood to be shed, to lose his life. And all
of his believed church going and confessed good works will be in vain without
him receiving salvation. Jesus Christ did not die for people breaking man's
standards and his church rules, but He died for people transgressing God's
standards of rules, which are his 10 commandments and all laws that magnify,
detail and give the full intent of His 10 commandments. When a person breaks
or continues to break any one of God's 10 commandments, he is still a sinner
headed for death, James 2:10.
Christ's ultimate sacrifice was given in His great love
to take the place of the penalty, for a sinners' sins and iniquities, for
all the ones that can understand the truth concerning His sacrifice. His sufferings
and crucifixion was not given for people's sins, so they could continue in
their sins and iniquities as most believe. Jesus Christ will not accept anyone
that does not understand this and does not set his mind and heart to stop
transgressing His commandments. Transgressions of God's commandments, which
is sin, is the reason Christ went through all that He did, but only for
those that will understand, who will repent by bearing acceptable fruits of his repentance and will accept His Sacrifice.
He said He came to turn sinners AWAY from their sins and iniquities, not to make A WAY whereas they can continue in their transgressions and iniquities.
Today's confessing Christians desire a Christ that
died for their sins and iniquities, but not really a True Savior where they
have to make drastic changes in their lifestyle and behavior. They
don't want a Christ whereas they, in order to be accepted by this Christ
of God's Word, means that they have to stop sinning and begin to live a righteous
life. In plainer words, they don't want to be turned from their iniquities
and sins and so they will accept any minister that will create, raise up
and preach any false Christ that accepts them in their sins. People love
their sins of idolatry whether it is their lifestyle behavior of all that
they do. They love people, churches, ministries, money, homes, cars, pets,
all of which have become to them idols, that they feel they must put before anything
God commands of them. People love to live lies in the sins and iniquities,
and Rev. 22:14-15 absolutely has no meaning and understanding to them and
no warning to them.
However, in this special effects movie, the portrayed Christ
did not represent the true Christ of the Bible, a masculine looking Christ with short hair as Christ inspired Paul to write "it is a shame for a man to have long hair, it dishonors his head, Jesus Christ,"
I Cor. 11:4,14. Why would Jesus Christ have long hair and inspire the
Apostle Paul that long hair on a man is dishonoring his head, Jesus Christ?
Today's Christian community tries to give a picture of Christ in beauty
and splendor, as being head and shoulders above the average Jew of His day,
with long flowing hair, with a thin body and soft, non calloused, slender
hands and fingers. All of this false picturing of Jesus Christ is the
false creation and making a false image of Christ and is of evil men, and is not of God and His Word.
says the true Jesus Christ of Scripture would have no form or comeliness,
Isa 53:2, meaning there was nothing outstanding in His figure of appearance
such as a beautiful appearance and figure with long flowing hair that would make Him stand out. He,
without question, looked like the average Jew of His day and being a builder
or carpenter during the years before He began His ministry, worked with
heavy wood and heavy stones in the building trade, and probably had a muscular
build and had calloused hands and fingers. When the soldiers came
to arrest Him on that Passover night, the Scripture says the soldiers fell
backwards when Christ revealed to them that He was Jesus, whom they sought.
They were expecting someone that stood out and above all of His disciples
in form and appearance, but He didn't, He appeared as an average Jew. So
likewise in this movie Christ's appearance was not presented according to
This movie created Christ
also had to share His power to forgive sin with Mary who was portrayed as
forgiving Peter's sins, as Peter bowed before her in the movie in order to be forgiven. The movie
kept going back to Mary with her actions pertaining to the shed blood of Christ
as if she was being crucified with Christ as a co-savior with Him, which
is all likewise against Scripture. Only Jesus Christ was crucified and only
He can forgive sin and not any other person, male or female.
No other name under heaven given among men where one can be saved except through the
name of Jesus Christ, Acts 4:12.
But even more importantly, the movie in its Script
did not give its audience what Christ's word says as to the purpose of His life and death, why He came and died. He inspired Paul to write in Acts 3:26 "---- God, having raised up His son Jesus Christ, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities."
So to repeat in this article, are people being turned away from their iniquities and sins through today's
preachers and their messages and even through a special effects movie about Christ's suffering and death? People today
cannot equate their sins with the reason Christ came and gave His life.
People don't realize every time they sin that they are continuing to bruise,
beat and shed the blood of Jesus Christ. Scripture warns in Heb. 10:28-29,
"He that rejected Moses law (God's law) died without mercy under
two or three witnesses: Of how much worse punishment, suppose you shall be
thought worthy, who had trodden under foot the Son of God (Jesus Christ)
and has counted the blood of the covenant (the giving of the broken body
and shed blood of Christ) wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and
has done despite (hateful disrespect) unto the Spirit of grace."
Today's professing Christians
live their lives with a false understanding about their sins and iniquities,
that their sins that they confess that they daily commit has nothing to do
with WHY JESUS CHRIST DIED and how they are to live their life.
Any confessing Christian who
is still a sinner, still continuing to willfully sin is bringing insult, shame,
and great disrespect upon the broken body and shed blood of Jesus Christ
and treating His blood covenant and Spirit of Grace as an unholy thing, Heb. 10:29.
Yes, people after seeing the movie will quote John 3:16, but not Acts 3:26,
nor will they quote even the following verses of John 3:16 such as verses
19-21 where it says
"men love darkness (blindness of their sins and iniquities) rather
than the light, and everyone that does evil will not come to the light, the true Christ, because
their deeds will be exposed.".
Will this movie with its
special effects have this special effect on every sinner that sees it? Most
likely it will not, because there is nothing in the movie and its Script
giving this special effect understanding, truth, and real vision of why God,
the Father sent His son to this sinning earth and society. The movie did
not give the true special understanding of why Jesus Christ died and went
through His terrible ordeal of suffering and death. People live wasted lives,
ever learning, but unable to come to the knowledge of truth about their life
and salvation. Jesus Christ did not go through all that He suffered and His
death, so people could continue in their sins, but to make a way for sinners to be turned from their sins and iniquities.
How many times would these words have to be said in this article for anyone
to get the point and message of Jesus Christ why He came and gave His body
to be broken and His blood drained from His body in death to provide the
perfect sacrifice for the payment of man's sins?
A loving Christ came to this earth to be
our Passover, Whose suffering and death was given to cover
over and pass over and take the place of the penalty for our sins,
but only for whoever will humble himself or herself, and whoever can truly repent
and have a real change of heart and behavior for the rest of their life.
People want to be accepted and their sins passed
over, but without any real change of heart or mind on their part. Most professing
sinning Christians will not humble themselves to believe and follow the true
teaching of Jesus Christ. The Scripture about the Gospel is not written the
way today's Christians are living and accepting it. Today's Christians are living the way
of Satan through the teaching of His ministers of his light, but who are
professing to be ministers of the light of Christ. They have all deceived
today's confessing Christians. II Cor. 11:13-15.
Accepting Christ's death and sufferings as a fact of truth
will not help, or forgive anyone of their sins and iniquities, if people
do not understand that this was all done, because all have sinned and transgressed
God's 10 commandments. The law of God demands the penalty of death
for sin, the judgment of death for the transgression of His commandments,
and it will be paid either by you, meaning the death of your life, or
you understanding that this penalty of death upon your life can be lifted, passed over
by you accepting Christ's substitutionary death for the payment of your sins. However, Christ
will not accept anyone who is not determined to repent of his sins and will
not set himself or herself to stop transgressing God's 10 commandments. Transgressing God's 10 commandments identifies, determines and defines everybody's sins and iniquities.
This is the true vision and insight of Why Jesus
Christ Died. This most important understanding and vision is totally left out and will not be found
in this movie about The Passion Of Christ, and this movie will be in vain and will produce
only a moving, emotional, temporary effect and not a lasting effect, change,
and conversion without this true vision of Christ's suffering and death.
This is why Jesus Christ continually taught and said it is By Their fruits
that you can know them who are the real, truly converted Christians and
ministers walking this earth today, and who are the false ministers and false
Christians that Christ warned about by saying many false prophets will deceive
the people. These professing ministers and Christians are Christians in name only,
shells, fakes, hypocrites, because they are all still transgressors of God's commandments and are adding
shame, dishonor, and despite to the suffering and death and Grace of
the real Jesus Christ, Heb. 10:29.
God says in Pro. 29:18 "Where there is no vision the people perish: but he that keeps the law ( God's 10 commandments ), happy (blessed) is he."
So if you are God's man or God's woman and you are hating
sin, and are obeying His laws and commandments, and have accepted and have saving faith through
the true Jesus Christ, then God says this to you in I Peter 3:12,
" For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open
unto their prayer: but the face of the Lord is against them that do
Christ continually says you must "Repent or you will Perish."
As it is written so shall it be done.
