The Activity of the Holy Spirit in the lives of Church Age believers, part 28.

What the blood of Christ has accomplished


This means because we are believers we are already declared righteous, meaning totally acceptable forever in God’s sight.

We already have the redemption through the blood of Christ, and that means that we already have the forgiveness of our trespasses.
EPH 1:7

This complete forgiveness of sins is the universal testimony of the New Testament epistles directed toward church age believers.

COL 2:13
When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions.

HEB 10:14

For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.

HEB 10:16-17
He [the Holy Spirit!] then says,

We have confidence to enter THE HOLY PLACE because we have been made holy, perfectly sanctified, by the blood of Jesus!!

Heaven is now open to you 24 hours a day and 7 days a week because of the wondrous blood of Jesus Christ.

Law vs. Grace
Law sets this up:

Obey ► Bless
Disobey ► Curse


Law vs. Grace
Grace does this:

Bless and Enable ►
now Walk as My son or daughter

Any teaching that says you have to confess your sins in order to be forgiven, confess your sins in order to be restored to fellowship with God, confess your sins before the Holy Spirit can work in your life, …

That teaching is legalism that serves to prevent believers from actually in their lives enjoying the blessings purchased by the blood of Christ.

Jesus Christ loves us and has released us from our sins by His blood. REV 1:5
