sermonette: Sins Borne Away
Richard T. Ritenbaugh
Given 16-Sep-21; Sermon #1617s; 10 minutes
Contrary to prior understanding, Satan plays no role in the redemption of God's people. The Day of Atonement (Leviticus 16:1-28) represents both a blood sacrifice for covering/cleansing and a means of removing sin permanently from the camp of Israel. God has promised to permanently remove transgressions as far as the East is from the West (Psalm 103:12). A major function of the Suffering Servant (Isaiah 53:12) is to bear the transgressions of many. As members of the Israel of God (Galatians 6:16), His chosen saints express delight that their sins will be permanently removed.
