All Charges Dropped – 5.18.2021

The more I study the scripture, the more amazed I am of this gracious plan of salvation. 1 John 2:2 says, “And He is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but for the sins of the whole world.” It literally means, Seeking to appease or conciliate. It doesn’t say, He is our propitiator, though in a sense He is. He is also called our advocate, but don’t ever suppose He has to beg the Father to forgive us. Notice how Paul puts it, 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.” It is God who set Him forth and it is by His perfect righteousness we are forgiven. Christ does not, then, have to plead that our sins be forgiven. He appears in heaven for us, having conquered every foe. His very presence there is enough to cause all charges against us to be dropped. And all we have to do is believe it. Marvelous!!
