Hello, my name is Dirk.
For the last several vlogs, I have been talking about the name of the Father and of the Son; YHWH and Yahushua. The next several vlogs will focus on the reason why Yahushua came. It was not just for one reason but for several reasons. This is the first vlog discussing about the reason that many people are familiar with. Yahushua came so that our sins could be removed and provide us with the possibility of having eternal life.
The first verse that I want to talk about and substantiate this is from Colossians 1:14. Go ahead and read the verse then I will discuss this further.
In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
We already know that Yahushua died on the stake. Church often uses the term ‘cross’ but if we look closely on the term used for cross where the Greek term actually means stake so we will stay with that term.
Yahushua died on the stake and his blood shed so that our sins could be forgiven. The verse is accurate in that, now, how do we know that our sins are forgiven? Is it because of the blood alone? No, there is more to it than that. I want you to read Colossians 2:14 which explain what was nailed on the stake. That is the reason why we have the possibility of having eternal life.
Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to the stake.
The blue highlight on the words “handwriting of ordinances”, which the church often explains as the Law, the Torah, and Sabbath all of those were nailed on the “cross” and this means that they no longer matter to us. This is not what this means. When analyzing the Greek term, understanding what Paul was trying to explain, especially in context of the verses in Chapter 2, before and after the verse I am talking about. We understand that what is being talked about pertains specifically to the list of each of our sins, those that we have done wrong against YHWH, against the Torah, every single sin written down. When we die, that list will be used when YHWH judges us. The punishment is death. We will not have everlasting life.
Yahushua himself being perfect and without sin was put on the stake with our list of sins nailed on the stake. This means what I owe to YHWH, what I have done wrong against Him is paid for. Our sins have been taken away meaning that we no longer sin against YHWH. We owe nothing. This is what that verse means.
I want to give you a few verses from other bible translations, specifically what the translations use instead of handwriting of ordinances. Those translations are more accurate in their translation.
List of various translations of Colossians 2:14
Charges, which are the list that is against us– what kind of list? Our Sins that is against YHWH. What I have done wrong. Not obeying YHWH, Not following the Torah, not doing Sabbath, etc, being against YHWH, disobedience. Each one on the list and when we die and we face YHWH, this list already makes me guilty and Yahushua being perfect, remember?, perfect and without sin being put on the stake, all out sins, yours, mine, people from the beginning of time up to those at the end of time, all of our sins were nailed to the stake. What we owe for our sin, which is death was nailed on the stake. No longer will be punished for our sins, our sins are forgiven. We do not have to die for our sins. Yahushua took it all.
This is a great blessing. Many people do not realize this, passing this off as the Law being nailed to the “cross”. It is the punishment, Death–which we die for our sins, that was removed.
How do we know that the punishment for our sins is death? It is from Romans 6:23 that explains clearly that our punishment which is death. But Yahushua’s death forgave us of our sins so we could have eternal life.
For the wages of sin is death, but the favourable gift of Elohim is everlasting life in Messiah Yahushua our Master.
This precious gift from Elohim—everlasting life. If we continue to be stubborn and not accept Yahushua, the list of sins will not be put on the stake and our punishment is death. Elohim with his compassionateness granted us a gift of everlasting life. We must know that what we do that is against YHWH—there is only one punishment—one, and that is death. We cannot try to avoid this and get everlasting life ourselves.
The next few vlogs will explain other reasons why Yahushua came. This is the first one. There will be several more reasons. The Church explains only one reason that Yahushua came and that we can get everlasting life is that “Jesus” died on the “cross.” I will say this, this is not the only reason. Yes, Yahushua died for us so that we can have everlasting life plus several other reasons. I will discuss these more later.
