The Church of God (7th Day) South Africa

Fulfillment of the Sin Sacrifice Second Edition

After the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, His apostles went out in power to preach the true Gospel of the coming Kingdom of God. One crucial aspect of that Gospel was the essential acceptance of Jesus as our Savior. Most people in the Christian world view this aspect too superficially. This is due to reliance on New Testament scripture only. By doing this, the true and deeper meaning of the acceptance of Christ is lost on most Christians.                                         

What does it really mean to accept Christ? This book opens one of the many aspects of what that acceptance really entails. It is not in vain that we have the Old Testament scriptures included in our Bibles! The whole Bible is required to understand the full Gospel message. The original apostles were well equipped to preach the whole message using Old Testament Scriptures. This was what the apostle Paul did.

"23 And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening."

(Acts 28:23, KJV)

This book endeavors to expand on the initial concept of accepting Christ. It shows one aspect of that acceptance. There is much more to this requirement for salvation, and it will be dealt with in subsequent books. Therefore, what is discussed here is by no means the complete story. This is however a start. For those that are serious about salvation, it is imperative to study and become fully acquainted with the full implications of what it means to accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior.

Firstly a prelude provides a fictitious story of how an elder brother was used by his dad to save the rest of the children from their wrong and destructive ways.

Chapter one continues then to introduce the Heavenly Father, the Heavenly children, and Christ, our elder Brother.

Chapter two deals with the sacrifice under the law of Moses, and what spiritual and emotional effect it should have produced.

To some extent some saints in the Old Testament fulfilled a type of sin sacrifice. Chapter three discus those incidents and what we can learn from them. It starts from the Garden of Eden, and continues with Cain’s evil example, and Joseph’s obedience. It continues then to bring new meaning to the serpent on the pole incident in the Exodus.

From Chapter four the scene is set for Christ’s ultimate sacrifice, and the aspects of His final death as a human being.

Chapter five continues with how the preaching of the apostles used aspects of the Sin Sacrifice in various ways. For them these were powerful and very real messages! It should be for us too! It was a catalyst for repentance in the book of Acts.

Chapter six continues to show the deeper meaning in the preaching in the epistles of Paul, Peter and John, up to the book of Revelation.

Chapter seven shows how “Heavenly Things” are now reconciled, and why we can come to the Heavenly Banquet! Salvation will finally be achieved! We are finally saved!

To be truly saved, you MUST read and understand this book! It will bring a much deeper appreciation of the Christian Faith! It can bring real and lasting repentance of problems and sin in our lives!
