Blog Question: If Jesus gave his life for us, but took it back 36 hours later..what, exactly , was "paid"?

Blog Answer: What exactly was 'paid'?, was His Blood(where Life resides) for the wages of the sins of this world, which live under the original sin of the 'law of sin & death'.

The Life that Christ Jesus, quote unquote, "TOOK BACK(raise up into)" wasn't the same live condemned to the law of sin & death that He was born into in the earth. The Life He is now raised up into resides back under the original order of the Law of the Spirit of our Heavenly Father's Kingdom, from which He came.
---Shawn_M.T. on 12/11/08

What was given was the life of Christ.
How was it given? Through the shed blood of Christ.
The life is in the blood(as you have read in scripture) and that blood was shed for you and I and all the world. John said.
"Behold the Lamb of God that taken away the sins of the world"!!!!!!
Thank you Jesus thank you
---mima on 11/24/08

He paid for our sins. The ones He has chosen, so everyone wouldn't end up in hell. He sent back His Holy Spirit which comes to live in the true believer at the moment you are saved by His Blood. There is no other way to get to heaven, except through the Blood of Jesus Christ. This is why He came, my friend. To save those who believed the foolish message of the cross, because to an unbeliever it is all foolishness.

---Sheila on 11/23/08

I thought my answers were quite comprehensive,you seam to be happy in your total indoctrination (fundamentalism). The pagan doctrines that came from Babylon,to Rome,fused with Christianity(325ad) when Luther seperated from the RC church, they were part of his baggage..down to today! Long as you embrace these you will never understand!
---1st_cliff on 10/27/07

your debt, my debt, everyones debt for all the worlds sin past present and furture.once for all. we are justified by the blood of jesus when we accept his attoning sacrifice. the wages of sin is death, he died in your place your not guilty and now because he paid the price you can now have a personal relationship through jesus with god.

But Cliff, you see, the Disciples went to the WORD to learn. That is just what I was trying to get you to see and you still don't.

We have the liberty to view and use the Scripture in many ways as long as the content of the doctrine is not compromised.

The Scripture is of ONE interpretation but many applications.

When you say the Christ could have died any kind of way I understand your thought. If God had determined the Christ just die any kind of way it could be done. But Scripture prophecy said how He would die so it could only be one way.

My whole problem with this matter is that God keeps reminding me of II Tim 2:23 in dealing with you on this.

Nothing of value ever grows on the surface of the soil we must dig some to grow good roots.

God designed us to think and He gave us Scripture to guide that thinking. When we fail to include Scripture that is how Cults and Humanistic thinking gets started and confuses people.
---Elder on 6/6/05

No I was not trying to make a "long winded discussion about hell...just giving you a "for instance." I was just using "scripture and fact" as a correction! Can you picture the Scribes,Pharisees,Sadducees etc all set in their ways becomming "indignant" with Christ's gospel. After all they had the "scriptures!" and Rabbinical education!The diciples were "ignorant and unlearned men"act.4.13 What could they possably know?
---1st_cliff on 6/5/05

Cliff when and if you learn to connect and divide Scripture you might also say God the Son.

It was not me that said Jesus could have died by poison.

Everytime you made an off the wall remark I corrected it with Scripture.

Now you want to start a long winded debate over Hell that we have all ready had.

So what is your point and what are you trying to prove.

Misuse of a compass will not send me to Hell misuse of the Scripture just might.
---Elder on 6/5/05

Elder; I've never believed that tit-for-tat was good argumentation, but you make statements that have no basis in scripture! IE "God the Son" or "God the Holy Spirit" You only arrive at this by "deduction" not scripture! Or what book,chapter,verse says "immortal soul"?
---1st_cliff on 6/5/05

Elder; I realize my "findings" are not the general consensus.Does that make them wrong? Unscriptural?Just 1 "for instance"...Hell(sheol) is in the OT 65 times.31times hell,31times "grave" 3 times pit.No concept of a firey hell was known for 4ooo yrs. This is not "popular" but it IS scriptural! If the compass is "off" have it "swung" I don't like "batting" my friends! agape
---1st_cliff on 6/5/05

Cliff, I know that we could talk more intelligently.

Things you post are so confusing and appear to be so Unscriptual, especially to Newer Christians.

So, we have to "bat" at each other and show a lack of love and concern when that is not so.

If you ask me where I am going tomorrow and I reply with; V5E GARVY X, V243 BWG 150/10 when all I had to say was Bowling Green. How many would be confused?

Elder; You must also know that not all my answers are posted.If I contact you privately no one else willl benefit from the discussion!
---1st_cliff on 6/4/05

Cliff you know better than your last statement.

I take up for you and others in correct views. When anyone misuses Scripture I reveal that. I do because I think they might want to know and for the benefit of others.

You come back with the attitude that you have arrived and don't want to know. You explain away proper thoughts and are doing that now.

Like I said, if you want my answers you know where to get them. You may have some valid ideas but you are too busy taking up for yourself.

I am subjective to the teaching of the Bible. We are miles apart. I told you before, the Scripture is of no private interpretation.

The horses are as real as the Kings of the East. You have the same attitude as those who heard Noah say it was going to rain.

This type of reasoning applies to much of your "gospel" Must all your answers come from hand-me-down staid preaching?
---1st_cliff on 6/1/05

Cliff, why explain Gods immortality to you? Anything explained to you will be turned around and discounted by your mind.

You contribute discord and not Scripture teaching. You speak of "Towering Qs" to show your knowledge but sidestep revealed Scripture Truth.

1st_cliff on 5/30/05-1Pe 3:18Doesn't say suffering w/out death,but by suffering that He may bring us to God which can only be done by paying our sin.Jesus did pay with death(giving His life)Rm5:10 "For if,when we were enemies,we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son much more,being reconciled,we shall be saved by His life." I think I was wrong thinking when Jesus said "It is finished" He meant our sin payment was finished.I think He must've meant something else was finished.

1st_cliff on 5/30/05-You said"If Jesus was God He could not have died!"Only thing listed impossible for God is to lie.Dictionary is based on man's reason of things&God's ways are higher.Dictionary isn't scripture,so don't count on it being totally accurate.Mat 12:40 "For as Jonas was 3days &3nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be 3days &3nights in the heart of the earth." was the comparison for Jesus death not "the dead know nothing."
---Sheila on 5/31/05

1st_cliff on 5/30/05-So perhaps Jesus had a consciousness through His Spirit,but death imprisoned Him as Jonas was in the whale. Also,He quickened Himself by His same Spirit by which He preached through Noah during the days before the flood1Pe.3:18-20.It was a com.from Father that Jesus have power to lay His life down & take it again (Jn.10:17-18).And that's what Jesus did.God wouldn't command an impossibility.
---Sheila on 5/31/05

1st_cliff on 5/30/05-Jesus Spirit,as in days of Noah preaching through Noah,didn't perish cuz it quickened Himself as man back to life.Heas man had to come back to life or He'd have had no victory over death,&then we'd have no victory in Him to have everlasting life.Define immortality in God's terms?Nothing definite is coming to mind,but I'll bet I'll know the answer clearly sometime.1Pe.3 shows insight into something that is more complicated for me to understand regarding the immortality of Jesus/God.

Tradition says Peter died by being crucified upside down. Could he have been the Messiah? No of course not because he didn't fulfill all of the other Prophecies.

Down through history God told through signs and Prophecies who the Messiah would be.

They were written in the OT hundreds of years before Jesus was born. There are over 300 Prophecies and Jesus fulfilled them all.

If He had fulfilled 299 and died by poison and not crucifixion He WOULD NOT have been the Messiah.

God planned the ONLY method and payment that would reconcile lost sinners to the Holy God Himself. Abraham saw it, believed it and told it in Gen 22:1-19.

It was also predetermined before the world was created how the Redeemer would come and die for lost sinners. God was not caught by surprise.

---Sheila on 5/29/05

Elder; you completely miss the point (because you want to) It was Jesus' death that paid the price not the method. Crucifiction proves from prophecy "who" He was So long as you hold the view that the dead dont realy die(death-cesstation of life)you will never comprehend the mechanics of "life vs death" truth hinges on this!

1st_cliff on 5/28/05-Jesus said it was finished before He died.It was His suffering, blood,&justness that paid our sins.His human life was resurrected,or He wouldn't have defeated death.He defeated death so we may also live.As for what happens to human bodies after ascending to heaven,or after an angel is no longer taking on human form -- the idea of bodies disposed of is speculation.A more accurate speculation based on scripture occurances is bodies are transformed, NOT disposed of.

Cliff after 108 post you finally come up with a clear answer, a little off but somewhat clear.

You see Jesus is God, Heb 1:1-8. God spoke in v1 and in v8 God called the Son God.

Jesus had the power to lay His life down and to take it back, John 10:17-18.

After all of the "smoke and mirrors" you have delivered on this blog and now you want people to feel sorry because you have been asked to be plain in your replies. No one does this quite like you do Cliff.

Maybe if you explained your purpose people would understand. Are you afraid to come out and state your beliefs.

You are not fighting the enemy you are punching those who are in your own corner. You don't get points for those blows.

Elder; I guess I'll have to raise my belt up under my armpits,some of your punches are a little low! Cant fool the ref.tho! Our concept of God differs quite dramaticaly.You see Him as an arm around the shoulder-first name basis.I see Him as the creator of this Universe,of whom I'm not fit to lick the dust from His feet.If He gave me 5 seconds of His time in my lifespan I would be thrilled beyond measure...cont

Why is it that you said He paid nothing?
Let's get that explained.

For me He paid the debt (He did not take it back) my debt is paid in full. How is it you cant comprehend that Jesus gave up His earthy human life forever to cover our sins. He will never be a human again. God gave Him back His pre-human form and is once again Devine!
