For today's bible study, we see a fit man pictured above sending a scapegoat carrying all the sins of the children of God into an uninhabited wilderness never to return again. The fit man would then return to the camp of Israel without the goat as the people shouted praise because their sins were gone forevermore. The people in the camp would rejoice and shout fit man's comin' and he ain't got the goat. The people celebrated because the goat and the peoples' sins were gone forevermore
Friend, Jesus is the fit man that bore our sins on the cross, rose again, and will return to his saints a second time without sin unto salvation. Hebrews 9:28 says So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation The fit man Jesus took His own blood to take away our sins forevermore and will soon take His saints to the kingdom where their sins will never be remembered. Isaiah 65:17 says For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
The story about the fit man and the scapegoat pictured above can be found at Leviticus 16:7 and says And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the Lord at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats, one lot for the Lord, and the other lot for the scapegoat. And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the Lord's lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering. But the goat on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make an atonement with him and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.
Leviticus 16:20 goes on to say And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat. And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness. And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited, and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness. Leviticus 16:26 then says And he that let go the goat for the scapegoat shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward come into the camp.
Now friend take time to read my good friend Sonny Mull's description of how the fit man took away our sins forevermore. The fit man would take the scapegoat into the wilderness, a place not inhabited, and where the goat could never return. Then the fit man left the scapegoat and came back to the camp by himself. A watchman on a mountaintop would hollar to another watchman fit man's comin' and he ain't got the goat. Then, the second watchman would hollar to another watchman on a mountaintop, fit man's comin' and he ain't got the goat. Many watchmen would hollar from one mountain to another mountain fit man's comin' and he ain't got the goat till it got back to the camp. And when the people in the camp heard fit man's comin' and he ain't got the goat, the people of the camp shouted and rejoiced for seven days.
The people of the camp shouted praises for seven days because the goat carried away their sins into the wilderness never to be heard of, never to return, never to be brought back, as far as the east is from the west, where their sins were gone forever. Friend, Jesus is the fit man that bore our sins in His own body, and Jesus is coming back a second time for those who look for Him without sin unto salvation. Friend, Jesus is comin' again and He ain't got the goat, He ain't got our sins, and Jesus has taken away our sins forevermore to an uninhabited place where the goat can never bring them back to the saints' camp in the new Jerusalem.
For out next picture we see the Lord Jesus as our daysman mediator between God and man. The word daysman only appears once in the bible at Job 9:33 where Job asked a question saying Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, that might lay his hand upon us both. The apostle Paul answered Job's question and proclaimed that Jesus was our daysman mediator that reconciled man to God and stated at 1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
A daysman used to put his hand on one man and another man's head and then made a decision which one of them was right. The word of the daysman stood forevermore like a judge's decision as the final word for a dispute. Friend, Jesus is our daysman that holds onto us and onto God and brings us together to the Father as He washes away all our sins by His own blood. Everyone praise Jesus for saying to the Father as our daysman that my word is final, and my friends are cleansed from all sin by my blood and can enter and live forevermore in peace in the glorious kingdom.
GRACEPictured above we see Boaz as the kinsman redeemer for Ruth. Boaz was the bridegroom that redeemed, married, and bought the Moabite Ruth. Boaz represented Jesus and Ruth represented the church. Jesus is the bridegroom kinsman redeemer of the church, who redeemed, married, and bought the church with His own blood. 1 Peter 1:18 says Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.
God's Redemption At Christ's Expense
God's Redemption At Christ's Expense
You might say Brother Bob why does the word grace appear under the picture above. OK, here's the answer. Say right now thank you Jesus because grace is God's redemption at Christ's expense. Another word that shows the mercy of Jesus as our kinsman redeemer is propitiation. Jesus was our propitiation or sacrifice on the cross for all our sins. To remember the meaning of the word propitiation say pro pit, and then say thank you Jesus for providing pity for guilty sinners like myself. Romans 3:25 says Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood, to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins (defined as removing the bondage of sin forevermore), that are past, through the forbearance of God.
Friends, you might say why is Brother Bob placing a picture above of a little boy building a toy boat. OK, I pray in Jesus name that my friends everywhere take time to read the following story about the little boy above and his toy boat and learn the blessed truth of how Jesus redeemed sinners by His own blood. I pray in Jesus name that this little story gives peace and healing to all my friends who forevermore read this bible study.
A little boy and his daddy built a toy boat, glued it together, placing sails on the toy boat, and the toy boat was very precious to the little boy and his father. One day they both took the toy boat to a lake to sail it out on the beautiful lake. Unfortunately, the wind got a hold of the little boat and took it out into deep water and as the boat got into the swift water, it disappeared down the river. The little boy was so sad when he lost his little boat.
But, the next week, as the little boy was walking through the city, he looked into a pawn shop window and saw his little toy boat. He went inside the pawn shop, picked up his boat, and started to walk out. The owner of the pawn shop said Whoa son, where are you going? The little boy told the pawn shop owner, This is my boat. The pawn shop owner replied, No it's not. I paid a little boy $1 for that boat. You'll have to redeem and buy the boat before you can own it again. It's not yours, it's mine.
The little boy replied and said it's my boat, I glued it together and built the boat myself. Again, the pawn shop owner said No son, it ain't, I got a receipt right here proving that the boat is mine. After this, the little boy ran home to his daddy and brought his daddy to the pawn shop to buy the boat back. As the little boy walked out of the pawn shop with his boat, the little boy said you're mine twice now, once because I bought you, and once because I built you.
Friends reading this anywhere, like the little boy who built and redeemed his boat, Jesus made us and still had to redeem and buy us back, and it cost God the blood of His only begotten Son Jesus to redeem and save our souls. We should all daily thank the Lord Jesus for redeeming us all from sin with his own blood that He shed at the cross, freeing us forevermore from the bondage of sin. Jesus, like the little boy, says to us all, you're mine twice, once because I bought you with my own blood, and once because I am the God that made you.
