(John 8:12) “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows me shall not (shall not -“ou me” – is a double negative – never never or never ever) walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
UNDER THE NEW COVENANT (GRACE) GOD WILL NEVER EVER IMPUTE SINS AGAINST THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.
(Rom 4:8) “Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not (“ou me” – is a double negative in the Greek) impute sin.”
(2Cor 5:19a) “That God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them.”
(Heb 8:12) “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities I will remember no more.”
(Heb 10:17) “Also He adds, “their sins and their iniquities I will remember no more.”
NOT IMPUTING SINS AGAINST A BELIEVER IS JUST ONE OF THE BENEFITS OF THE NEW COVENANT OF GRACE THAT CHRIST MEDIATED WITH THE FATHER.
Heb 8:12-13) “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.” By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and aging will soon disappear.”
BEAR IN MIND THAT TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO, ON THE CROSS, ALL LAWLESSNESS WAS PAID. GOD’S JUSTICE WAS SATISFIED AND HIS HOLY LAW WAS MAGNIFIED; GOD LAID ON CHRIST THE INIQUITY OF US ALL AND RECEIVED ALL OF GOD’S JUDGMENT ON OUR BEHALF. CHRIST RECEIVED GOD’S WRATH AND ANGER ON HIS BODY AND SETTLED ALL OUR DEBTS LEGALLY, JUSTLY, AND RIGHTEOUSLY!
(Isaiah 53:5-6, 10a) “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed…………and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all……yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him and cause him to suffer”
GOD DID NOT COMPROMISE IN SAVING US–JUSTICE WAS INVOLVED; WE ARE LEGALLY FORGIVEN AND LEGALLY JUSTIFIED!
(Rom 3:23-25a) “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice”
JESUS PAID ALL THE VIOLATED LAWS OF GOD AND FOR THIS REASON, GOD IS NOT COUNTING SINS AGAINST THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST.
(2Cor 5:19a) “God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, NOT COUNTING MEN’S SINS AGAINST THEM.”
THIS ACT FROM GOD IS THE NEW COVENANT HE PROMISED AND WAS PUT INTO EFFECT BY THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST, OFFERED IN SACRIFICE FOR THE REMISSIONS OF OUR SINS.
(Heb 8:12-13) “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.” By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and aging will soon disappear.”
IN CHRIST, WE ARE UNDER A NEW COVENANT MEDIATED BY HIM AND ESTABLISHED ON BETTER PROMISES.
(Heb 8:6-8a) “But now He (Christ) has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises. For if there had been nothing wrong with that first covenant, no place would have been sought for another. But God found fault with the people”
