DISCOVERING THE DIFFERENCES
The law was only a copy of good things in the future . . . The same sacrifices, offered year after year, could never make worshipers perfect. Otherwise, they would have stopped making sacrifices, because the worshipers would have been made clean once for all time. They would not feel guilty. . . God took away the first group of sacrifices . . . Because God wanted to do that, we have been made holy once for all time through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ. A priest serves . . . every day. He offers the same sacrifices again and again, but . . . can never take away sin. . . Jesus Christ offered just one sacrifice for sin forever . . . With just one sacrifice, Christ made them perfect forever. . . I will completely forget about their sins and their wrongs. When these people are forgiven, sacrifices for sin are no longer needed. . . with the blood of Jesus, we can have confidence to go into the most holy place . . . His blood is the new, living way that opened the way for us . . . let us come with a true heart and be sure of our faith, our hearts should be made pure . . . our bodies should be washed with pure water. Let us hold tightly to the hope . . . He is dependable. . . . We are not like those who move back and are destroyed. We are like those who believe and are saved.”(Hebrews 10:1-2, 10-12, 14, 17-18, 20, 22-23, 39, emphasis mine rh).
What does God mean that the saint is “made clean once for all time”?
What does God mean that the believer is ”made holy once for all”?
What does God mean that the Christian is “made perfect forever”?
What does God mean that the kingdom servant is “made pure . . . washed . . . and saved”?
