24 In this episode I ask you what sin gets you thrown into Hell.
I heard a speaker tell me one time it's the first time you sin that gets you thrown into Hell. I think I must disagree.
I do not believe sin is the issue any more. I read multiple passages from the book of Hebrew where it tells you Christ died once for all sin.
Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.
How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God.
For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us.
Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: “Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body You have prepared for Me. In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You had no pleasure. Then I said, 'Behold, I have come in the volume of the book it is written of Me to do your will, oh God. Previously saying, “Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin You did not desire, nor had pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the law), then he said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God. He takes away the first that He may establish the second. By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus once for all.
for by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.
Every sin that has ever been committed on the earth was placed on Jesus at the cross. Jesus took our sin on His body, they nailed His body to the cross and buried Jesus and every sin with Him.
This would be a terrible story but the story doesn't end with the death of Jesus. Three days later He rose from the dead and will never died again. This is the too good to be true news of the Bible.
Sin is not the issue. The only question God is going to ask you when you stand before Him in heaven is: What did you do with My Son?
If you answer I believed Your word and accepted Him as Savior and declared Him Lord of my life. You shall be saved.
If you haven't declared Him Lord of your life I believe you will be asked to stand in a different line in heaven.
The Bible does say "All have sinned," but it also declares Jesus died once for all sin. All sin means every sin past, present and future sins were nailed to the cross and buried with Jesus.
Thank you for listening.
