Evidence of How Christ demands the Forgiveness of sins to Be Accomplished.
John.15: 16“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. :
Lev.4: 20,26, 31 “Thus shall he do with the bull; as he did with the bull of the sin offering, so shall he do with this; and the priest shall make atonement for them, and they shall be forgiven. …] And all its fat he shall burn on the altar, like the fat of the sacrifice of peace offerings; so the priest shall make atonement for him for his sin, and he shall be forgiven. …And all its fat he shall remove, as the fat is removed from the peace offerings, and the priest shall burn it upon the altar for a pleasing odor to the LORD; and the priest shall make atonement for him, and he shall be forgiven.
Lev.16: 8-9, 21 “and Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats, one lot for the LORD and the other lot for of the F. .. And Aaron shall present the goat on which the lot fell for the LORD, and offer it as a sin offering; …and Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the people of Israel, and all their transgressions, all their sins; and he shall put them upon the head of the goat, and send him away into the wilderness by the hand of a man who is in readiness.”
Here is HOW it is transferred and perfected in the NT, New Covenant in Christ Blood.
Luke.5 :17 to 26 “ On one of those days, as he was teaching, there were Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting by, who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem; and the power of the Lord was with him to heal. And behold, men were bringing on a bed a man who was paralyzed, and they sought to bring him in and lay him before Jesus; but finding no way to bring him in, because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and let him down with his bed through the tiles into the midst before Jesus. And when he saw their faith he said, “Man, your sins are forgiven you.” And the scribes and the Pharisees began to question, saying, “Who is this that speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God only?” When Jesus perceived their questionings, he answered them, “Why do you question in your hearts? Which is easier, to say, `Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, `Rise and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins” — he said to the man who was paralyzed — “I say to you, rise, take up your bed and go home.” And immediately he rose before them, and took up that on which he lay, and went home, glorifying God. And amazement seized them all, and they glorified God and were filled with awe, saying, “We have seen strange things today.”
In order to establish that Christ did transfer these powers and this authority to His Priest WITHIN His One CC; we share the following.
NOTICE the powers that Jesus transfers to the Apostles and His CC:
Matt.10: 1-8 “
And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every infirmity. The names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zeb’edee, and John his brother; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him. These twelve Jesus sent out, charging them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles, and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And preach as you go, saying, `The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying, give without pay.”
Then as we ought to know Jesus gives to Peter [the 1st of the 12]; the very Key’s to the kingdom. ALL of us ought to agree that 1. We are sinners [
1 Jn. 1:8-10] 2. That there are Moral Spiritual life-killings sins [1 Jn. 5: 16-17] and that No one is going to get to heaven with ANY Unconfessed or unmerited Mortal sins on their soul. [John 20: 23]
Matt. 16:15-19 “
He [Jesus] said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jona! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. And I [Jesus] tell you, [Simon] you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it. I [Jesus] will give you [Simon /Peter] the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Eph. 4: 1-7
“I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all lowliness and meekness, with patience, forbearing one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of us all, who is above all and through all and in all. But grace was given to each of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift.
John.10: 16 “And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd”
Eph. 2:19-20 “
So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, [SINGUAR] built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure [SINGULAR] is joined together and grows into a holy temple [SINGULAR] in the Lord; in whom you also are built into it for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”
AT THE TIME THE BIBLE WAS 100% WRITTEN, COLLECTED, AND CODIFIED THERE WAS IN IN EXISTENCE ONLY THE CATHOLIC “CHURCH“. Even the Eastern Churches were still part if it at this point, and Protestants would not appear for about ONE THOUSAND MORE YEARS! Therefore EVERY reference to “church” or “churches in the bible is a direct and precise reference to today’s CC.
[“On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again
, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.” [WITH MY Powers and My Own Authority!] And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are”
be assured that it REAMINS Christ alone who actually forgives our sins. The Absolutely essential role of the priest is: 1. To on God’s behalf hear our Confession of sins 2. To determine if we are TRULY repentant 3.To share with us some Godly advise on how we MIGHT avoid these sins in the future 4. To give God Permission to forgive our sins. 5. To assign a “penance” to us which acts like the OT sacrifices of those OT priest. [Sins are NOT forgiven until this is accomplished].
ALL of these things I mention below happen in this brief passage.
The promise of Jesus to send the Holy Spirit to Guide; Protect and GUARD the ONLY church and ONLY set of faith-believes actually By and FROM GOD Himself is fulfilled.
John 14: 16-17
“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, to be with you for ever,
The incitation of the First Feast of Pentecost
3. Jesus who Instituted ALL Seven Sacraments:
here institutes the sacraments of Confirmation AND the Sacrament of KNOWN forgiveness of our sins . THE ONLY MANNER IN WHICH SINS CAN OR WILL BE FORGIVE IS EXACTLY AS JESUS HIMSELF COMMANDS AND ORDAINS.
All of the mortal men short cuts for Forgiveness of sins are worthless! Because God only founded One religion, one set of Faith believes and One church; all other faiths are usurpations or God own powers and authority. Authorized NOT by God but by mortal men.
Any one wishing more evidence of this can contact me at
4. Then notice the verse where Jesus fulfills the promise of the Key’s:
“Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.” [WITH MY Powers and My Own Authority!]
Matt.28: 18“And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” SO IT IS WITHIN Christ Powers to transfer these powers to Peter and through him; the Apostles and the CC.
Matt. 28: 16-20 “
Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him; but some doubted. [Doubing Thomas] And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.”
God Bless my dear friend,
