DARK LIGHT SERIESCHAPTER EIGHTKINSMAN-REDEEMER THE PURCHASE OF THE HUMAN RACE
We are going to now search out the very visible and historical Christ, to find out exactlywhat He did, and why He did it. That will then answer many questions we might have asto the true nature of regeneration, and how we may obtain it. Modern Christian theologyclaims that Christ destroyed all the barriers between man and God, and that Christ brought about a total reconciliation between man and God by the work of the Cross, andthat all man must do is
RECOGNIZE IT, AND ACCEPT IT AS AN ACT OF FAITH,AND HE IS THEN SWEPT INTO HEAVEN.
If this is true, then what happened to the
many
? They certainly accepted the work of Christ on the cross, and they put all their faith and belief in that work. Yet it availed themnothing. When they arrived in heaven they found out that
THEY WERE NOTRECONCILED TO CHRIST WHATEVER.
The Christ they thought they knew, thisgentle meek lamb full of love, mercy, grace and compassion turned into something quitedifferent. He turned upon them and with the sweep of His hand he forces them to eternalruin
WITH NO LOVE, NO HOPE, NO MERCY OR COMPASSION.
Wherein, then,is
THIS SO-CALLED COMPLETE RECONCILIATION?
It is a pipe dream of apostates, of false prophets and teachers who have invaded the Body of Christ to deceivethe elect and sweep them away into ruin.The claim of modern Christian theology is that there is ONE BARRIER BETWEENMAN AND GOD. IT LOOKS LIKE THIS:The one barrier of modern Christian theology is called the SIN BARRIER. According tothis theology it was SWEPT AWAY BY THE WORK OF CHRIST UPON THE CROSS.Therefore all we need to do is ACCEPT THAT FACT BY AN ACT OF FAITH, ALONGWITH CHRIST, WE ARE THEN HEAVEN BOUND.In truth, there are two barriers, and
Christ destroyed one
, and
we must, be walking thenarrow way, to destroy the other.
The first barrier was destroyed by the work of Christupon the cross, and that
RECONCILES GOD UNTO MAN
. The remaining barrier isthe hostility barrier that natural man has within his own heart. No amount of religioustheology, no amount of philosophy, no amount of works, no amount of righteousnessupon earth is going to break down this barrier. There is only one way through it:
STRAITGATE AND NARROW WAY.
The Bible is very clear that God reconciled Himself to the world, via accepting the work that Christ did upon the cross. What about us? Are we reconciled?
 
“And, having made peace through the blood of his cross,BY HIM TO RECONCILE ALL THINGS UNTO HIMSELF,BY HIM, I SAY,WHETHER THEY BE THINGS IN EARTH, OR THINGS IN HEAVEN.And you, that were sometimes ALIENATED AND ENEMIES IN YOUR MIND BYWICKED WORKS, YET NOW HATH HE RECONCILED IN THE BODY OF HISFLESH THROUGH DEATH, TO PRESENT YOU HOLY AND UNBLAMABLEAND UNREPROVABLE IN HIS SIGHT:IF (THE HUGE CONDITIONAL IF)YE CONTINUEIN THE FAITH GROUNDED AND SETTLED AND BE NOT MOVED AWAYFROM THE HOPE OF THE GOSPEL, WHICH YE HAVE HEARD, AND WHICHWAS PREACHED TO EVERY CREATURE WHICH IS UNDER HEAVEN”(Colossians 1:20-23)
 Please pay close attention to the
HUGE CONDITIONAL “IF”.
False prophets and falseteachers
DROP OFF ALL THE QUALIFIERS TO SOFTEN THE GOSPEL, TOMAKE IT POPULAR TO CARNAL MAN.
This conditional
if 
sounds very much likethe CONDITIONAL IF OF CHRIST THAT
WE CONTINUE IN HIS DOCTRINE,
or the huge conditional CALLING UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD
IN TRUTH(Psalm 145:18 ).
This verse alone should prove to anyone that MAN MUST,
IF
HE IS TO RECONCILEHIMSELF TO GOD, DO AS COMMANDED. Jesus only gave us one way to accomplishour reconciliation to God. There is no other way. Thus:
CONTINUE IN THE DOCTRINE = FINDING THE TRUTHCONTINUE IN THE FAITH = BEING RECONCILED
 In graphic form, we could lay out this verse of Scripture like this:The reconciliation does not TAKE PLACE until we find Christ,
KISS THE SON,
andenter into
UNION WITH HIM.
You cannot enter into UNION unless you arereconciled. Obviously, then, the process of reconciliation
IS THE WALK OF THENARROW WAY.
Because we can prove that God has reconciled Himself to man, thereis only one reconciliation left, and that must be, has to be
MAN TO GOD.
That meansthat the strait gate and the narrow way is the reconciliation process, and it is the only way by which we may
BREAK DOWN THE BARRIERS THAT OUR INNER HEARTSHAVE ERECTED TOWARDS GOD.
That is why the Bible says that our carnal minds,our carnal hearts are
HOSTILE TOWARDS GOD.
 Natural man does not perceive thisto be the case, and he is UNAWARE of the true nature of his inner heart. That was thedeception of the many, they refused to face the REAL REALITY OF THE AWFULNESSOF HUMAN NATURE.
 
They would not face the BLACKNESS OF DEPRAVITY. You see, this is the
REPROOF OF GOD, THIS IS THE REBUKE OF GOD.
Ever notice how a littlechild will confess he did something wrong, but it is almost impossible to get him to tellyou what HE DID? He will wail and cry and carry on and confess he was naughty, andyell that he was sorry, but NEVER WILL TELL YOU FOR WHAT! You have to drag itout of them. Likewise does God have to
DRAG IT OUT OF US.
Mankind will CONFESS his multitude of sins. He knows he rapes, steals, murders andcommits gross violence. All the primary religions of the world focus on the multitude of sins, and most of them claim that if man would JUST CLEAN UP HIS ACT, AND GETRIGHT WITH GOD, he would be in fine shape. Modern Christianity is no different, for the ‘many’
DUTIFULLY CONFESS TO GOD THEIR MULTITUDE OF SINS.
Our altars are stained with the tears of sincere and dedicated people who have admitted toGod their deepest and darkest secrets.
BUT NEVER WILL THEY ADMIT TO THEIR ONE SIN.
They simply refuse to face the issue, they refuse to be exposed to the realdarkness, the real problem with man;
NO AGAPE LOVE.
The multitudinous sins of mankind were forever settled by Christ upon the cross. He took the sins of mankind into Himself and that work was accepted by God because Christ wasinnocent of all charges. The only hitch in this transaction is that mankind can only availhimself of this work by
WALKING THE NARROW WAY.
If he refuses, the sinsremain. If he accepts, the sins are blotted out forever. To settle the sin issue after a soulhas come to the living Christ, Jesus now sits upon the throne of God as our HIGHPRIEST, and
EVER LIVES TO MAKE INTERCESSION FOR US.
That part of Hisintercession
IS ONLY AVAILABLE TO THE REGENERATED.
It does not cover anyone else. We will cover this in detail.The work of Christ on earth was accomplished by Christ being a substitute for us under what is known as
Kinsman-redeemer law.
Under kinsman-redeemer law, CHRISTCAME TO EARTH AND PURCHASED THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE BY HISBLOOD ATONEMENT. He now owns everyone, lock, stock and barrel. By this act of  purchase,
ALL THE BARRIERS ERECTED BY GOD AGAINST MAN WEREUTTERLY DESTROYED. EVEN THOSE SUPERNATURAL POWERS AND THEDOMINION OF SATAN WAS UTTERLY DESTROYED.
Satan’s power anddominion over the minds of man is a dominion of fraud and deception. He was totallydethroned by Christ and has no real claims over anyone. He gets his power by
DEFAULT, BY DECEPTION, BY SECRECY, BY CUNNING.“And HAVING SPOILED PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS, he made a shew of them OPENLY, TRIUMPHING OVER THEM IN IT. (Colossians 2:15)
The word “spoiled” is “apekduomai” and it means
TO DIVEST WHOLLY, TODETHRONE, TO REMOVE TOTALLY, TO ELIMINATE COMPLETELY.
Theroot is “ekduo” and it means
TO DIVEST, TO STRIP.
Christ utterly destroyed Satan’s
