Holy Justice Satisfied 5


So how did Jesus satisfy God’s Holy Justice? By being sinless and offering himself in our place. His blood is the blood sprinkled on the mercy seat of God. Not a copy of it like the priests of old had to do once a year. But the actual throne of God in heaven.

Heb 9:24-28

24 For Christ did not enter a man-made sanctuary that was only a copy of the true one; he entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God’s presence. 25 Nor did he enter heaven to offer himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own. 26 Then Christ would have had to suffer many times since the creation of the world. But now he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27 Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, 28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

NIV

Jesus Christ fully satisfies the demands of Holy justice upon those who by faith believe in Him. He removes their sin and gives them his righteous life in return. He in fact imputes to us who believe…His righteousness. And that is our next section the imputed righteousness of Christ.
