The Blood Paid Your Debt
10-01-12 | Frank Bromm

Posted on 10/01/2012 3:40:56 PM PDT by Frank Broom

There are people that don't fully understand what the blood of Jesus has already done for them. So, they continue to live as if Jesus never shed his blood. But, he did and he did it for a reason, for you. You see sin calls for punishment and the punishment for sin is death. Now, that doesn't mean just physical death. It includes all the things that came as the result of sin (sickness, depression, poverty, fear, and everything else). Those things are punishment for sin. Now, the scripture says God is the judge of all the earth and he's a just judge. So, if you sin you are due punishment. But, that's where the blood comes in. Jesus took all of your punishment for you to be free of it. In Isaiah 53:4,5 it says, "Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed." See, he took what was due you.

Let me paint this picture for you, let's say a person commits a crime and the judge sentences him to 15 years, after those 15 years he goes free from that punishment and he cannot be punished again for that crime. That's like what Jesus did, the sentence for sin is death and your sin was put on him so he took your punishment for you to be free of it. In 1Peter 2:24 it says, "Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sin, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed." Well, if your sins were put on him then so was your punishment. That's why it says, "By whose stripes ye were healed". Notice that's past tense because the debt has been paid by his blood. Let me give you an example, say you get a bill in the mail for 300 dollars, that's what you owe, and I go and pay for what you owe then the debt is paid. But, you still have the bill in your hand, now you can either accept what I did and thank me for it or you can keep living like you owe or have the bill. The debt has been paid for you to be free of that sickness, that depression, that fear, that poverty. But, you may have some trace that the debt has not been paid that's why this is a faith walk. You can either put your faith in what the Bible says Jesus did or you can put your faith in what you see. Accept what Jesus did for you and let the redeemed of the Lord say so and hold on to that confession of faith (Psalm 107:2, Hebrews 10:23). You overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of your testimony (Revelation 12:11).

Nice post. I have often wondered if we dishonor Christ when we keep carrying our burdens or guilt after we have asked and been granted forgiveness or relief. So many of us have asked for forgiveness for our sins and/or been granted relief from our suffering, yet we keep carrying the burden like an appendage we cannot do without. I think God is insulted when we do such things. The grace of God is a gift. We should treat it as such.

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

For my cleansing this I see—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
For my pardon this my plea—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

Nothing can my sin erase
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
Naught of works, ‘tis all of grace—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

This is all my hope and peace—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
This is all my righteousness—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

Thanks for your article; very well said!

These are also very profitable to hide our hearts:

“All we like have gone astray; and we have turned everyone to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:6)

“Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” (Jeremiah 33:3)

“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleaneth us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7)

Now, that doesn't mean just physical death. It includes all the things that came as the result of sin (sickness, depression, poverty, fear, and everything else). Those things are punishment for sin.

Those things are not punishment for sin. They are the consequences of sin, which was brought into the world by Adam and Eve. The wages of sin are death. Jesus' shed blood and death atoned for our sins, and gives us victory over death, in that those who accept Jesus as their savior will spend eternity in Heaven with God.

It sounds like you're saying that a believer should never be sick, depressed or poor, which is a "prosperity gospel", and very bad theology. I hope you're not falling for it.

Whosoever believeth is not condemned, but whosoever believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed on the name of the only begotten Son of God.
