The assurance of the New Covenant

The New Covenant has taken away all sins for the believer in Jesus Christ:
Hebrews 10
The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship. 2 Otherwise, would they not have stopped being offered? For the worshipers would have been cleansed once for all, and would no longer have felt guilty for their sins. 3 But those sacrifices are an annual reminder of sins. 4 It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.
9 Then he said, “Here I am, I have come to do your will.” He sets aside the first covenant to establish the second. 10 And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever
“This is the covenant I will make with them
“Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.”
18 And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin is no longer necessary.
What exactly has Jesus done for us?
Under the old covenant (law) the Israelites were constantly reminded of sins and they offered the animal sacrifices repeatedly for their guilt. But it could NEVER take away their sins and that is why they repeated their sacrifices with confession of sins.
Today many Christians have no assurance of forgiveness.
They keep confessing their sins asking God’s forgiveness.
They are still operating with an old covenant mindset assuming that God is remembering their sins.
They don’t realize that the law was given to expose sins and show people that they are guilty (Romans 3:19-20).
But its purpose was for people to come to Christ for salvation by FAITH and once we have believed, we are no longer under the guilt of the law (Galatians 3:23-25, Romans 10:4). The law has ended for those who believe in Christ because He made us righteous by faith.
We are no longer guilty sinners by our actions but Righteous Saints by Christ’s actions! His death and resurrection made us righteous!
It is all about Jesus!
Dear friends, please see what happened in the New Covenant.
Christ’s death on the cross made us HOLY and PERFECT FOREVER.
It is not our confessions that can remove your guilt but it is His DEATH that was the FINAL sacrifice of removing all our sins.
God promised to NEVER remember our sins anymore.
Our sins are not a barrier between us and God!
We can come to God your FATHER
in FAITH because Christ took away all our sins.
The New Covenant says that there is no more sin to forgive, and therefore no more sacrifice.
Did you catch the POWER of that?
Jesus has already forgiven you the ENTIRE LIFETIME of past, present and future sins!
That is why He will not die again!
You don’t need to offer up your “sacrifices” of confession, a broken heart, tears, etc…..because JESUS DID IT ALL!
If you believe in Christ, you are forgiven ALL sins and made HOLY, PERFECT and RIGHTEOUS by His work alone!
