We accept Jesus as the acknowledged sacrifice for sin once and for all.

Since the law has only a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of them, it can never make perfect those who come to worship by the same sacrifices that they offer continually each year. Hebrews 10:1

A crowd seated around Him told Him, “Your mother and your brothers [and your sisters] are outside asking for You. ”But He said to them in reply, “Who are My mother and [My] brothers?” Mark 3:32-33

Hebrews 10:1-10, Psalm 40 & Mark 3:31-35

The true beauty of the Word of God is the explanations given for us to reason our minds to let our hearts let go and surrender to God’s Only Son to live in forgiveness experiencing faith, hope and love every second of every day of our life. Today Paul explains why the people who follow Jesus grasps that the Old Testament sacrifices did not effect the divine benefits to come but only foreshadowed them. The sacrifices effected nothing in forgiveness of sin for there would be no need for constant repetition. These sacrifices offered up on a regular basis was an incessant recap of the sin’s being committed by the people further acknowledging it was not reasonable to believe human sins can be removed by the blood of animals through animal sacrifices.

No, Christ understood His duty was to fulfill the revelation in Psalm 40: 5-8, “Blessed the man who sets his security in the LORD, who turns not to the arrogant or to those who stray after falsehood. You, yes you, O LORD, my God, have done many wondrous deeds! And in your plans for us there is none to equal you. Should I wish to declare or tell them, too many are they to recount. Sacrifice and offering you do not want; you opened my ears. Holocaust and sin-offering you do not request; so I said, “See; I come with an inscribed scroll written upon me.” We accept Jesus as the acknowledged sacrifice for sin once and for all nullifying all Old Testament sacrifices thankful Jesus understood God’s Will offering His own body for the forgiveness of sins forever. Amen.

Over the years I have listened to many a person discuss whether Jesus had brothers and sisters or was He the only child of Joseph and Mary after his birth in the Manger. My wife and I have talked about this every now-and-then and she heard an explanation once that when Jesus was dying on the Cross looking down at his mother and the Disciple John Jesus exclaims, “behold your mother,” giving Mary a designated person to watch over her for if she had other sons and daughters Jesus would not have given her His disciple as her surrogate son. Jesus was being told His brothers and sisters are waiting outside referring to the disciples in waiting as described today when referring to your brothers and sisters in Christ. Jesus wanted them to know anyone who follows His Truth will be His brothers and sisters as well as your own brothers and sisters in Christ. Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today we live in Your Inheritance calling one another Brothers and Sisters in Christ. Praying for the Emmaus Team of South Carolina. Praying for Kairos Prison Ministry. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. We pray for Greg Bishop’s healing. LORD, guide us to love. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Yours in Christ,

Thomas Cruz†Wiggins

The Body of Jesus Christ once for all– Hebrews 10:1-10

 

The law only shadows

The goodness of things to come

Not an image of sacrifices

Bulls blood constantly run

 

Never making perfect

Those who seek same

Offered continually each year

As playing a selfish game

 

Once cleansed from sin

Each no reason to return

But a yearly remembrance?

For blood of bulls can’t end

 

No sacrifices desired

Body prepared in a scroll for me

Burnt offerings no delight

I come doing Your Will to see

 

Neither delight or desired

The sin offerings of animal’s fall

We have been consecrated through His offering

The Body of Jesus Christ once for all

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
