“Jesus knows the circumstances of every soul. The greater the sinner’s guilt, the more he needs the Saviour. His heart of divine love and sympathy is drawn out most of all for the one who is the most hopelessly entangled in the snares of the enemy. With His own blood He has signed the emancipation papers of the race . . .
“Forasmuch as ye know . . . that ye were not redeemed (ransomed, purchased, atonement, bought back) with corruptible things, such as silver and gold, from your vain conversation (lives of vanity, wasted efforts at your own salvation), received by tradition from your fathers . . . . But with the precious blood* (Life) of Christ, as of a Lamb without blemish and without spot . . . !” I Peter 1:18-19
“For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls . . . for it is the blood (Life) that maketh an atonement for the soul . . . !” Leviticus 17:10-11 and ref: John 20:17 and Hebrews 10:4-20
Jesus does not desire those who have been purchased at such a cost to become the sport of the enemy’s temptations. He does not desire us to be overcome and perish. He Who curbed the lions in their den, and walked with His faithful witnesses amid the fiery flames (Daniel 3:13-25), is just as ready to work in our behalf to subdue every evil in our nature . . . . Freely will He pardon all who come to Him for forgiveness and restoration. He does not tell to any all that He might reveal, but He bids every trembling soul take courage. Whosoever will, may take hold of God’s Strength, and make peace with Him, and He will make peace ! ref: Isaiah 27:5
“For now, in Christ Jesus, ye who sometimes (previously) were afar off (in the outer and inner courts), are made nigh by the blood of Christ . . . . He is our Peace, Who hath made both One (John 17:21 at-one-ment), and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us . . . !” Ephesians 2:13-14 and 2:1-7
The souls that turn to Him for refuge, Jesus lifts above the accusing and the strife of tongues. No man or evil angel can impeach these souls. Christ unites them to His Own Divine-human nature. They stand beside the great Sin Bearer in the Light proceeding from the throne of God.
“What shall we say then to these things? If God be for us, who then can be against us? Yea, He that spared not even His Own Son, but delivered (gave) Him up in exchange for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give* (grant favor, kindness, pardon, rescue, deliver, forgive) us all things?
Who shall lay any thing to the charges of God’s elect? It is God Himself that justifieth* (declares, renders innocent, holy and righteous) . . . . Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, Who is even at the right hand of God, Who also maketh intercession for us . . . !”
Romans 8:31-37 and Romans 3:23-26 and 4:24-25
The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses “from all sin.” 1 John 1:7
Over the winds and the waves, and over men possessed of demons, Christ showed that He had (and still has) absolute control. He Who stilled the tempest and calmed the troubled sea spoke (speaks) peace to minds distracted and overborne by Satan.
“Peace I leave with you . . . for you are now accepted in the Beloved . . . My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid . . . !” John 14:27-28 and Ephesians 1:4-7
