Scriptures from the Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Ephesians 1:7  In whomwe have redemption through his blood, the forgivenessof sins, according tothe riches of his grace;

 *** primary; ** secondary; * other.

Whom:

 ***Heb 9:12-15Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

13For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:

14How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

15And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

 **1Pe 1:18-19 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

19But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

 *Ro 3:24Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

 *1Co 1:30But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

 *Tit 2:14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

 the forgiveness:

 ***Isa 55:6-7Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

7Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

 **1Jn 1:7-9But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

 *Psalms 86:5For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.

 *Lk 7:40-42And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.

41There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.

42And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?

 *Col 2:13And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

to:

***Ep 3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

 **Col 2:2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;

 *Ro 9:23 [nlt] He does this to make the riches of his glory shine even brighter on those to whom he shows mercy, who were prepared in advance for glory.

 *2Co 8:9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.

Ephesians 1:7 Redemption Through His Blood Part II

Works of Abraham

Romans 4:2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God.

John 8:39They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

James 2:21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?

What have you to measure your faith and salvation?

Fruitful Believers

Talents: Matthew 25:14-30

Four soils: Mark 4:1-20

Tares and wheat: Matthew 13:24-43

Three classes of people

Saved – good ground Mark 4:8, 20

Not saved – hard ground Mark 4:4, 15

Think they are saved – rocks and thorns Mark 4: rocks 5-6, 16-17  & thorns 7, 18.

One of two responses for all of humanity that will be spoken by Jesus; Matthew 25:21 Or Matthew 7:23

Matthew 25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Matthew 7:23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Where will we spend eternity? This question must be asked now as an “I don’t know” is a bad answer. At this point the UNPARDONABLE SIN HAS TO BE PLACED ON THE TABLE OF DISCUSSION. Mark 3:28-30

28Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:

29But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

30Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

This is the utter rejection of the message that the Holy Spirit has for all mankind; and the rejection is simply this; rejecting the instructions of Jesus Mark 1:14-15

14Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

15And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

For further on the subject refer to John chapter 3.

Vs. 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Vs. 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

Simply put, if one is not borne again then by default they are guilty of the unpardonable sin of Mark 3:28-30.

And to make matters worse for the ones that just plan on ignoring the Word of God the bible is clear on the subject that all things of God are clearly seen and know by nature.

Romans 1:20-21

[kjv]20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

[nkjv] 20For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

[nlt2ed]20For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. 21Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused.

[amp] 20For ever since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through His workmanship [all His creation, the wonderful things that He has made], so that they [who fail to believe and trust in Him] are without excuse andwithout defense. [Ps 19:1-4; Ep 2:10]21For even though*they knew God [as the Creator], they did not*honor Him as God or give thanks [for His wondrous creation]. On the contrary, they became worthless in their thinking [godless, with pointless reasonings, and silly speculations], and their foolish heart was darkened.

Only Jesus can take away that old nature (sin) and replace it with one that is new, the nature of Jesus, Zechariah 3:1-12, read it all for yourself.

[amp] 3Now Joshua was clothed with*filthy (nauseatingly vile) garments and was standing before the Angel [of the LORD].4He spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, “Remove the filthy garments from him.” And He said to Joshua, “See, I have caused your wickedness to be taken away from you, and I will clothe and beautify you with rich robes [of forgiveness].

Also read from Ezekiel 36:25-27

[amp] 25“Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your uncleanness and from all your idols.26“Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you, and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.27“I will put my Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My ordinances and do them.

“and you will keep my ordinances and do them” this is a patter that is found in the scriptures, when an individual is borne of the nature of Jesus they follow after him doing good works.

All individuals that are truly borne of God and walk in the spirit will exemplify the fruits of the spirit as seen in Galatians 5:16-26.

[nkjv] Vs. 22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness, self-control.Against such there is no law. 24And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Consequently, if we don’t walk in the spirit then we are not living in the spirit. This is a good time to check your life and line it up with the life of Jesus Christ.
