First, he fulfilled circumcision.So BLL what did Jesus fulfil on the CROSS?
Circumcision was the first of the covenants. If a child wasn't circumcised on the eighth day, that child could never enter into the second covenant.
Circumcision was the outward expression that represented the removal of fleshly lusts. Our anointed Savior taught us the spiritual significance of the law, giving us the ability to remove fleshly lusts from our hearts and minds. Having accomplished this, he allowed for another entrance into a covenant with "God," through him, which also allowed for Gentiles to enter into a covenant without having to be circumcised. In the law, if any Gentile desired to enter into a covenant with "God," they had to be circumcised, regardless of their age.
I'd like to add, too, that our anointed Savior died sinless. He was the epitome of what circumcision represented. Therefore, he fulfilled the law of circumcision.
The second law to be fulfilled was the covenant of blood for remission of sins.
By law, in order for Israel to be forgiven of their sins, they had to sacrifice the required animal. Without shedding of blood, there's no remission of sins. Without remission of sins, men were to be put to death. Our anointed Savior sacrificed himself and shed his own blood. Therefore, the law of sacrifice became fulfilled in him. No longer does anyone have to sacrifice an animal to be forgiven of their sins.
Another law to be fulfilled in our anointed Savior is the penalty of death, which ties in closely with the law of sacrifice.
When Israel was caught in the act of sin, they were brought before the gods so that punishment could be administered. For many of the laws, the penalty was death. But, by the most righteous of standards, all men were worthy of death. Therefore, it was determined that the penalty of death be removed. When our anointed Savior died as a substitute for sinful man, this removed the penalty of death from the law. This removal is called "grace." Now, when the time comes, the penalty of death will be reinstated and administered by our anointed Savior, being the only man worthy to administer such punishment. And this is why I repeatedly quote Isaiah 26:10. "Though grace is shown to the wicked, they do not learn righteousness," wrote Isaiah. One reason our anointed Savior died, as our substitute, is to give us grace, so that we can learn righteousness without fear of being put to death when we mistakenly miss the mark.
And lastly, our anointed Savior fulfilled the precepts of the Sabbaths.
There were many requirements to observing the Sabbaths, whether they be the weekly Sabbath, or a High Holy Day. Many of these Sabbaths required sacrifices, so forth and so on, which were also fulfilled on the cross. Therefore, it's these precepts that he fulfilled. In this, we're still to observe the Sabbath, but we're to keep in mind the precepts he fulfilled.
To understand, these Sabbaths are days of rest. And in this, we're to look toward a better, ultimate rest. After all, the Sabbath was made for man and not man for the Sabbath. The only High Holy Day that we're instructed to observe, too, is Passover. But, even in this, we're not to fulfill any other precepts than what was instructed us by our anointed Savior, himself.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Until next time...
