“And you know that He (Jesus) was manifested to take away our sins; and in Him is no sin.” 1 John 3:5.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God (John 1:1). The Word became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:14). The Word, Jesus Christ, was manifested to take away our sins. Jesus came to die on Calvary’s Cross to pay the sin debt for all of mankind. The Word (Jesus) was manifested in the flesh spotless, without blemish. He was Sacrificial Lamb of God. At the Altar of His Sacrifice is where our sins were paid. It is there that the dominion of sin is taken away.
Knowing this, knowing Who Jesus is and what He did on Calvary’s Cross for whosoever will believe, there is absolutely no doubt as to His Resurrection. There remains therefore a rest for the Child of God (Hebrews 4:9). We know in Whom we Believe. We know that He is sitting at the Right Hand of God. We know that we know that we know that we are saved to the uttermost seeing He ever lives to make intercession for us (Hebrews 7:25).
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith; Who for the joy that was set before Him endured the Cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the Right Hand of the Throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2
