WHOSE SINS DID YESHUA DIE FOR? By Tuese Ahkiong

WHOSE SINS DID YESHUA DIE FOR?
By Tuese Ahkiong



JUST QUESTIONING A LOT OF WHAT I HAVE BEEN INDOCTRINATED INTO BY MAINSTREAM CHRISTIANITY.  This is just an outline.  I need to elaborate more later.

Most of us have been trained to believe that the Bible is all ABOUT US and written directly TO US in the 21st century.  Sorry to burst your egotistic bubble!  It's mainly about Israel and her covenant with YHWH and promises from YHWH.


Matthew 10:5-7
These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans, but GO RATHER TO THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL. And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’
**TO WHOM DID CHRIST INSTRUCT HIS TWELVE TO GO TO?

Matthew 15:23-25
23 But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came and begged him, saying, “Send her away, for she is crying out after us.” 24 He answered, “I WAS SENT ONLY TO THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL.” 25 But she came and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, help me.”
***TO WHOM WAS CHRIST SENT??

Matthew 10:5-6
These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans, but GO RATHER TO THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL.
***WHERE WERE THE TWELVE INSTRUCTED TO GO?

Luke 4:42-44
42 And when it was day, he departed and went into a desolate place. And the people sought him and came to him, and would have kept him from leaving them,43 but he said to them, “I MUST PREACH THE GOOD NEWS OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD TO THE OTHER TOWNS AS WELL; FOR I WAS SENT FOR THIS PURPOSE.” 44 AND HE WAS PREACHING IN THE SYNAGOGUES OF JUDEA.
***ACCORDING TO THIS PASSAGE WHAT WAS CHRIST’S PURPOSE?  WHERE WAS HE?  WHAT TOWNS DID HE GO TO?



HIS PEOPLE

She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for HE WILL SAVE HIS PEOPLE FROM THEIR SINS.”
***Who is seen as YHWH’s People throughout Scripture? Does this passage refer to a different “HIS PEOPLE” from Israel?

LUKE 1:67-79
67 And his father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied, saying,
68 “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for HE HAS VISITED and REDEEMED HIS PEOPLE
69 and HAS RAISED UP A HORN OF SALVATION FOR US IN THE HOUSE OF HIS SERVANT DAVID,
70 as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets from of old,
71 that we should be saved from our enemies
 and from the hand of all who hate us;
72 to show the mercy promised to our fathers and to remember his holy covenant,
73 the oath that he swore to our father Abraham, to grant us
74     that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies, might serve him without fear,
75     in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.
76 And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High; for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways,
77 to give knowledge of salvation to HIS PEOPLE in the forgiveness of their sins,
78 because of the tender mercy of our God,
 whereby the sunrise shall visit us from on high
79 to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”
 **WHO IS THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL WHO IN THIS PASSAGE, VISITED AND REDEEMED HIS PEOPLE, WHO RAISED UP A HORN OF SALVATION FOR ___?
WHO ARE THE PEOPLE WHO WERE GIVEN KNOWLEDGE OF SALVATION FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF THEIR SINS?

Fear seized them all, and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has arisen among us!” and “God has visited HIS PEOPLE!”
***WHO WERE GOD’S PEOPLE AT THE PROCLAIMATION AND CONTEXT OF THIS STATEMENT???

 I ask, then, has God rejected HIS PEOPLE? By no means! For I myself am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, a member of the tribe of Benjamin. 2God has not rejected HIS PEOPLE whom he foreknew. Do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he appeals to God against Israel?
***WHO WERE GOD’S PEOPLE AT THE PROCLAIMATION AND CONTEXT OF THIS STATEMENT???  

For I tell you that Christ became a servant to the circumcised to show God's truthfulness, in order to confirm the promises given to the patriarchs, and in order that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written,
“Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles, and sing to your name.”
And again it is said, “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with HIS PEOPLE.”
11 And again, “Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and let all the peoples extol him.”12 And again Isaiah says, “The root of Jesse will come, even he who arises to rule the Gentiles; in him will the Gentiles hope.”
***WHO ARE THE GENTILES?  WHO ARE HIS PEOPLE?

26 For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses. 29 How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace?  For we know him who said, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will JUDGE HIS PEOPLE.”  31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

***WHO WERE GOD’S PEOPLE AT THE PROCLAIMATION OF THIS STATEMENT?  WHO PROFANED THE BLOOD OF THE COVENANT IN THE HISTORIC CONTEXT OF THIS PASSAGE?
WHEN WERE HIS PEOPLE JUDGED?  70AD JERUSALEM DESTROYED

21 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be HIS PEOPLE, and God himself will be with them as their God.  He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

***ARE YOU AWARE THAT HEAVEN AND EARTH CAN REFER TO A COVENANT  PEOPLE? 

ARE YOU AWARE THAT THE SEA CAN REFER TO THE PAGAN GENTILE NATIONS?  DID YOU KNOW THAT THE NEW HEAVENLY JERUSALEM CAME DOWN (HEB,12.22)?




MY PEOPLE
“‘And you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for from you shall come a ruler who will shepherd MY PEOPLE Israel.’”
***Who would shepherd MY PEOPLE Israel?  YESHUA
   
I have surely seen the affliction of MY PEOPLE who are in Egypt, and have heard their groaning, and I have come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send you to Egypt.’
***IS NOT STEVEN RECALLING YHWH SPEAKING WITH MOSES OF HIS PEOPLE ISRAEL WHO WERE IN EGYPT?   YES.
   
 And the Lord said to Paul one night in a vision, “Do not be afraid, but go on speaking and do not be silent, for I am with you, and no one will attack you to harm you, for I HAVE MANY in this city WHO ARE MY PEOPLE.” 11 And he stayed a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
***WHO ARE THE MANY THAT THE LORD SAYS ARE HIS PEOPLE?  THOSE ELECT AND CHOSEN OF YHWH.

As indeed he says in Hosea, “Those who were not MY PEOPLE I will call ‘MY PEOPLE,’ and her who was not beloved I will call ‘beloved.’”  26“And in the very place where it was said to them, ‘You are not MY PEOPLE,’ there they will be called ‘sons of the living God.’”
 ***DID YOU KNOW THAT THIS COMES OUT OF HOSEA 1:9-10, 2:23 SPEAKING OF THE NORTHERN KINGDOM?  DID YOU KNOW THAT NOT BEING YHWH’S PEOPLE ANYMORE AND CUT OFF FROM COVENANT WAS LIKENED TO BEING A GENTILE?
   
What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be MY PEOPLE.
***WHO SHALL BE YHWH’S PEOPLE?  SEE REV. 21.3
    
And I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my own age among MY PEOPLE, so extremely zealous was I for the traditions of my fathers.
***WHOSE PEOPLE IS PAUL TALKING ABOUT?
    
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be MY PEOPLE.
WHO DOES YHWH MAKE THE COVENANT IN PASSAGE WITH?
    
18 After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was made bright with his glory. And he called out with a mighty voice,
“Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!
    She has become a dwelling place for demons,
a haunt for every unclean spirit,
 a haunt for every unclean bird,
    a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast.
For all nations have drunk the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality,
and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her,
    and the merchants of the earth have grown rich from the power of her luxurious living.”
Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, MY PEOPLE, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues;
for her sins are heaped high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.

***WHO IS BABYLON THE GREAT?  APOSTATE ISRAEL IN THE 1ST CENTURY WHO MURDERED YESHUA AND THE DISCIPLES.

WHO IS COMMANDED BY THE VOICE FROM HEAVEN TO COME OUT OF HER, “BABYLON THE GREAT”?   YHWH’S PEOPLE.





Romans 5:6-8
For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his LOVE FOR US in that WHILE WE WERE STILL SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FOR US.
***WHO DID CHRIST DIE FOR?  WHO ARE THE “WE” AND “US” IN THIS PASSAGE?

But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man's trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded FOR MANY.
***WHO ARE THE “MANY?”

      Isaiah 53:12
Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he BORE THE SIN OF MANY, and makes intercession for the transgressors.
**WHO ARE THE MANY IN THIS CONTEXT?

      Hebrews 9:28
so Christ, having been OFFERED ONCE TO BEAR THE SINOF MANY, will appear a SECOND TIME, not to deal with sin but to SAVE THOSE WHO ARE EAGERLY WAITING FOR HIM.
***WHO WERE THE MANY THAT GOT THEIR SINS BEARED BY CHRIST?  WHO GOT SAVED WHEN CHRIST CAME A SECOND TIME IN 70AD WHILE THOSE EAGERLY WAITED FOR HIM?


Likewise, my brothers, you also have DIED TO THE LAW through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God.
**WHO DIED TO THE LAW?  WHO WAS UNDER THE LAW?  WERE PEOPLE TODAY IN THE 21st CENTURY EVER UNDER THE LAW?


For if your brother is grieved by what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. By what you eat, do not destroy THE ONE FOR WHOM CHRIST DIED.
***WHO IS THE ONE FOR WHOM CHRIST DIED?

And so by your knowledge this weak person is destroyed, THE BROTHER FOR WHOM CHRIST DIED.
****WHO IS THE BROTHER FOR WHOM CHRIST DIED?

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SCRIPTURES,
**WHO ARE THE "OUR" IN THIS PASSAGE WHO CHRIST DIE FOR THEIR SINS?  NOTICE IT SAYS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SCRIPTURES.  WHAT SCRIPTURES TAUGHT THIS WOULD HAPPEN AT PAUL'S WRITING OF 1 CORINTHIANS?

2 Corinthians 5:13-15
13 For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. 14 For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: THAT ONE HAS DIED FOR ALL, therefore ALL have died; 15 AND HE DIED FOR ALL, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.
***WHO ARE THE "ALL" IN THIS CONTEXT?  ALL WHAT?  ALL WHO?  
ALL HUMANITY?  ALL ISRAEL?  ALL THE CHOSEN ELECT?  ALL THE CHOSEN ELECT OF ISRAEL THAT WOULD BE SAVED FROM THE JUDGMENT?


1 Peter 2:24-25
24 HE HIMSELF BORE OUR SINS in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. 25 For you were straying LIKE SHEEP, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
**WHO ARE THE “OUR” SINS THAT GOT BORED BY CHRIST?  WHO IN SCRIPTURE IS LIKENED TO SHEEP?  WHO IN SCRIPTURE IS SAID TO HAVE A SHEPHERD?

Galatians 1:3-5
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, WHO GAVE HIMSELF FOR OUR SINS TO DELIVER US FROM THE PRESENT EVIL AGE, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
WHO ARE THE “OUR” THAT GETS THEIR SINS TAKEN BY CHRIST TO BE DELIVERED FROM THE PRESENT EVIL AGE 1ST CENTURY?

1 John 1:8-10
If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS AND TO CLEANSE US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
***WHO GETS THEIR SINS FORGIVEN IN THIS PASSAGE?

1 John 2:1-3
My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. BUT IF ANYONE DOES SIN, WE HAVE AN ADVOCATE WITH THE FATHER, JESUS CHRIST THE RIGHTEOUS.HE IS THE PROPITIATION FOR OUR SINS, AND NOT FOR OURS ONLY BUT ALSO FOR THE SINS OF THE WHOLE WORLD. And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments.
***WHO GETS THEIR SINS PROPITIATED FOR?  WHO IS THE WHOLE WORLD IN THIS CONTEXT?  IS IT EVERY SINGLE INDIVIDUAL TO EVER LIVE?  NO.  
IS IT THE WHOLE COVENANT WORLD OF ISRAEL?

1 John 4:9-11
In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. 10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and SENT HIS SON TO BE THE PROPITIATION FOR OUR SINS.11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
***WHO GETS THEIR SINS PROPITIATED??  


Revelation 1:4-6
John to the seven churches that are in Asia:
Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth.
TO HIM WHO LOVES US AND HAS FREED US FROM OUR SINS BY HIS BLOOD AND MADE US A KINGDOM, PRIESTS to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
***WHO IS LOVED, FREED FROM SIN BY CHRIST’S BLOOD, MADE A KINGDOM AND PRIESTS???





TRANSGRESS.  ONE CAN ONLY TRANSGRESS A LAW THAT ONE IS UNDER

For THE LAW BRINGS WRATH, but where there is no law there is no transgression.
***WHO WAS UNDER THE LAW?  WHO TRANSGRESSED THE LAW?

Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come.
***WHOSE SINS WERE NOT LIKE THE TRANSGRESSION OF ADAM??


Galatians 3:15-29
15 To give a human example, brothers: even with a man-made covenant, no one annuls it or adds to it once it has been ratified. 16 Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “And to offsprings,” referring to many, but referring to one, “And to your offspring,” who is Christ. 17 This is what I mean: THE LAW, WHICH CAME 430 YEARS AFTERWARD, DOES NOT ANNUL A COVENANT PREVIOUSLY RATIFIED BY GOD, SO AS TO MAKE THE PROMISE VOID. 18 For if the inheritance comes by the law, it no longer comes by promise; but God gave it to Abraham by a promise.
19 WHY THEN THE LAW? IT WAS ADDED BECAUSE OF TRANSGRESSIONS, until the offspring should come to whom the promise had been made, and it was put in place through angels by an intermediary. 20 Now an intermediary implies more than one, but God is one.
21 Is the law then contrary to the promises of God? Certainly not! For if a law had been given that could give life, then righteousness would indeed be by the law.22 But the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.
23 Now before faith came, WE WERE HELD CAPTIVE UNDER THE LAW, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed. 24 So then, THE LAW WAS OUR GUARDIAN until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith. 25 But now that faith has come, WE ARE NO LONGER UNDER A GUARDIAN,  26 for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise.
**WHO WAS UNDER LAW?







Hebrews 9:15-22
15 THEREFORE HE IS THE MEDIATOR OF A NEW COVENANT, SO THAT THOSE WHO ARE CALLED MAY RECEIVE THE PROMISED ETERNAL INHERITANCE, SINCE A DEATH HAS OCCURRED THAT REDEEMS THEM FROM THE TRANSGRESSIONS COMMITTED UNDER THE FIRST COVENANT. 16 For where a will is involved, the death of the one who made it must be established.17 For a will takes effect only at death, since it is not in force as long as the one who made it is alive. 18 Therefore not even the first covenant was inaugurated without blood. 19 For when every commandment of the law had been declared by Moses to all the people, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people,20 saying, “This is the blood of the covenant that God commanded for you.” 21 And in the same way he sprinkled with the blood both the tent and all the vessels used in worship. 22 Indeed, UNDER THE LAW ALMOST everything IS PURIFIED WITH BLOOD, AND WITHOUT THE SHEDDING OF BLOOD THERE IS NO FORGIVENESS OF SINS.
***WHO TRANSGRESSED THE FIRST COVENANT AND GETS REDEEMED?
