When did Jesus Christ died for me

Discussion in 'News Stand' started by ApostleofChrist, May 23, 2016.

  1. Jesus Christ died for me while I was still a sinner - Romans 5 verse 8. That wasn't 2016 years ago, because I wasn't a sinner then :) So the Jesus Christ that died for me was not a man of 2016 years ago. Jesus Christ is Spirit and I crucified Him - Hebrews 6 verse 6. I crucified Him in others and by means of that, they sacrificed their lives, so that Christ could reveal through them unto me - and that is how I got saved - The blood of Christ (Gods works) was flowing through the body of Christ, the church (1 Corinthians 12 verse 27) and caused my salvation.
     
  2. Your creator, the creator of all things... knew you before you were born.
    He knew you then, He knows you know, and He loves you.

    He knows your past, your future and your present situation.
    He died for all mankind. Past, future, present. Heb 7:27; Heb 10:12;

  3. I agree 100%. Fact is that Christ died for everyone once, but that does not mean at 1 certain time. He died for everyone once in everyone's lifetime. The term is very clear "While we were still sinners" We only became sinners once we were born into this sinful world. And it is important to notice that He did that specifically at the time when we were still sinners :)

    Important to also understand what His crucifixion means and why the blood cleansed us from sins.

    The death of a physical man can save no one and that is not to difficult to understand. The same with physical blood - it can save only someone who need a blood transfer to survive physically. But when someone sacrifice his/her spiritual life (died to themselves), then Christ reveals through them unto sinners. The sinner then, due to his/her sinful nature, crucify Christ in those who preach the gospel of truth. The crucifixion takes place at "Golgotha", which means "Place of the skull". And that is nowhere else than in the people's minds (head - skull). But now, because of their steadfast faith in Christ, true believers endure/persevere and keep on revealing the attitude of Christ and because of that they keep on telling the sinner/s the truth regarding God's kingdom - that is the blood of Christ. And in that way salvation comes to everyone, whether many understand that or not :)
