Colossians 1:22



22 In [en] the body [soma] of his [autos] flesh [sarx] through [dia] death, [thanatos] to present [paristemi] you [humas] holy [hagios] and [kai] unblameable [amomos] and [kai] unreproveable [anegkletos] in his [autos] sight: [katenopion] KJV-Interlinear



22 yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach NASB



Of the seven holy days throughout the year (Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, Pentecost, Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles), the Day of Atonement was the most significant.


On the Day of Atonement, the High Priest entered into the second room of the Tabernacle (the Holy of Holies) twice, and sprinkled the blood of the sacrificed animal, onto the Mercy Seat.


Day of Atonement means to cover.Today the holiday is called Yom Kippur, which means the day of covering.


Jesus Christ went to the Cross on the Passover, was placed into the grave just as the Feast of the Unleavened Bread began, and arose three days later, which is the celebration of First Fruits.Forty days later, at Pentecost, the Holy Spirit was given and that is when the Church Age began.


In the fall of the year, the celebration of Trumpets (the calling out) will occur, and this is representative of the Rapture.The Day of Atonement is representative of the Judgment Seat of Christ, while the Feast of Tabernacles represents the regathering for the Millennial reign of Christ.


All of these things were made possible because of one reason and one reason only, and that is because Jesus Christ, who is God, became man in the flesh, just as you and I are members of the human race.


And in so doing went to the Cross as true humanity, and paid the price for sins in our place. That set the stage for Jesus Christs conquest of sin (corruption), spiritual death (separation from God), and physical death (limitations in life).


Christ redeemed man from the slave market of sin, reconciled man to God with the destruction of these barriers, and propitiated God on behalf of us, with His work.


When the blood was symbolically sprinkled onto the Mercy Seat, that represented the complete covering as a result of Christs work on the Cross.


Above the Mercy Seat were two angels on either end, one representing the Righteousness of God and the other representing the Justice of God.


Both (righteousness and justice) looking down on the Mercy Seat and seeing the covering of the Mercy Seat, with the work of Christ from the Cross, and all of this symbolically representing the satisfaction (propitiation) of God as to the sufficiency of the work of Christ in obtaining salvation (redemption, reconciliation, propitiation) for mankind.


Christ s work satisfies Gods stringent demands.Righteousness demands perfection.Justice demands punishment.And all of this in such a manner as to provide a legitimate restoration of mans relationship with God, without compromising Gods perfect character and truth.


Those who are disinterested in God or truth will be typically liberal minded. Not political liberalism, but spiritual liberalism.Liberalism is the tendency to compromise away all principles of value, in exchange for lesser values designed for convenience or expediency.


Gods values are strict and unchangeable, and maintain the highest of standards, and do not follow the course of mans relative values or arguments.


As a result, you and I have the opportunity (potential), of being made perfect (without blemish, untainted, blameless), and thus presentable before God Himself, in a manner of His choosing and not of our choosing.


All religions of the world, all cults, all philosophies, etc, differ from Christianity because of these principles.The sin nature drives their principles, which fundamentally reject the work of Christ altogether.
