In modernity preachers teach that YH’shua’s sacrifice (blood) is the cleansing element.
Though ultimately true, they speak to a partial truth versus the whole truth, were Messiah’s substance is the whole teaching.
Sadly, this mindset creates a culture of observers rather than doers, leading many to error …. Let’s face it, if I am ‘saved in sin’ then what’s the sense of seeking ‘salvation from sin’ – the way the life.
May it be so in YH’shua’s example.
New King James Version (NKJV)
“14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. 15 As ‘the Father’ (YHWH: the Name that identifies the Word and Works of Elohiym) knows Me, even so I know ‘the Father’ (YHWH); and I lay down My life for the sheep.”
