Further Study: When All Things Become New — 1 Comment

  1. Hebrews 9:27, 28 are interesting verses.
    Here the apostle speaks of Christ as having only ONCE borne the sins of the people. When he next appears, Paul says, he will not be bearing sin any more but is coming bearing salvation.
    With the present understanding of Satan being the scapegoat, Christ will appear a second time bearing the sins of the people if he is to transfer the sins from the heavenly to Satan. How can he transfer the sins to Satan if he is not bearing them like how the high priest bore the sins from the sanctuary and took them to the scapegoat.
    Note too, that in the typical service, as EGW so nicely puts it, “himself the priest himself the victim” (DA pg 25) the high priest representing Christ, kills himself, the victim (the Lord’s goat), then as priest, takes upon himself the sins of the people and transfers those sins to himself, the victim (the scapegoat). In the antitypical drama, Christ bore our sins in his live body on the tree (1 Peter 2:24) and then died, paying the penalty for the sins he bore. In the typical service, we must also see the victim bearing the sins of the congregation in his live body and also dying to pay the penalty for sin. That is clearly shown in the daily sin offering sacrifice. On the Day of Atonement, if Satan is the scapegoat that bears the sins in his live body, where in the typical service is Christ made to bear the sins of the congregation in his live body? The Lord’s goat of the sin offering did not bear the sins of the congregation!
