The purging of our sins

When you hear of purging, what do you think of?


Physical purging involves the expulsion of Viruses, microbes, roaches, black mold, pests, insects, dirt from your dwelling places In the same token, any man who lives with God must have all sins purged first Purgatory concept is wrong

The real purging not purgatory


Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Three facts about the purging of our sins by Christ


1. is a personal purging 2. is a substitutionary purging 3. is a final once and for all purging

1. It is a personal purging
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power,

Christ - the brightness of God's glory Christ - the express image of God's person Christ - The one who upholds all things (this universe) by powerful words
He himself, personally came to us who need purging to purge our sins

Because Righteousness demanded the personal appearance of the God-man


A representative angel would not be sufficient Purging sins by decree would not be sufficient

Only personal appearance would be right


Should be Bodily not just a phantom body but a real body, not just an alter ego, or doing it by proxy, as a Master Mind Should be Humanly not as a superman (I Cor. 15:21)

There was only the God man


Scripture says he had by himself purged our sins
In the purging, he was by himself no help needed Mary, Peter, Judas, John, is not qualified to help Even the Father forsook Him

2. It was a substitutionary purging


Our soldiers made sacrifices on our behalf for temporary peace But the sacrifice of Christ is greater because it was for our Eternal peace when he had by himself purged our sins

John 1:29, he took it away I Pet 2:24, his own body bore our dirt Heb 9:22, his blood purged our sins from us

Whose sins did he totally purge?


The sins of the sinners in this room Those who are not sinners are not included in the purging Are you a sinner? Christ is the one who purges sins

IS IT TOTAL OR JUST HALF DONE? Did he purge only half of your sins and the other half of the sins must be purged by you? How do you purge dirt or insects from your place? When Christ purged our sins, do you think he did it haphazardly or thoroughly?

Answer: Psalms 51:7

3. It was a FINAL purging


After he purged, he sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; What does sitting down on the right hand of the Majesty on high, mean?
Are there two entities today, two thrones, one beside each other? When we are lifted up in the third heaven, will we see two or three bodies sitting?

sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high


Sitting down means completing the work It also means His work was accepted The Lord is not actually just sitting down now, he is doing other things in heaven
Intercession (Heb. 7:25) Will unseal the scroll of the judgments (Rev. 5:6) Sit in the Great White Throne (Rev. 20:11)

He is no longer purging sins now, (Heb. 10:10) He will not give his body to purge sins again

Now you know from Heb. 1:3


Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 1. is a personal purging 2. is a substitutionary purging 3. is a final once and for all purging

Christians who forget purging are blind


If you are already purged, then be serious about it and serve God Grow in grace Stop worldliness and flesh But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. (2 Peter 1:9)

Did he purge your sins?


If your sins are not purged completely, you can expect God's wrath Sin is a magnet for the torturing eternal wrath of a Holy Avenging God Do you think you need purging? If any man is IN CHRIST, his sin is purged
