So the prodigal is not the Believer who sins??<quoted text>
The parable about the prodigal son is about the return of Israel...
It is used many times in reference to one that has strayed from the
presence of God..
The Prodigal son Israel ...went to a far country....
Took his inheritance and squandered it.
eating the husk the pigs were feeding upon..
Came to himself...
made a decision to return to the fathers house
He Was given a robe...
shoes for his feet....
a ring upon his finger and
a celebration (a feast) upon his
His older Brother ( the gentile Church ) became angry because of His
the father restored Him..to fellowship.
In no place does Jesus say that he received again his original
(But for the eternal covenant God made with Abraham,
Israel would have no inheritance..)
Israel's inheritance will be restored by/through the Blood of Jesus.
.....as ours ..(the believers in Jesus Christ is.)...
Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were
far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
Eph 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
Eph 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the
enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to
make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
Eph 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross,
having slain the enmity thereby:
Eph 2:17 And came and preached
to you which were afar off, and
to them that were nigh.
Eph 2:18 For
through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
And the Shepherd will not go after His lost sheep th as t The FATHER gave Him??
And when He told us about forgiveness..??
It just makes some of scripture confusing to believe that a repentant
Believe cannot be forgiven..Has shut the door on salvation
That's nit to speak of one who never turns back to the Lord.
Or the Jews the Hebrew writer addressed who were going back t o practice of Sacrificial Judaism
If ALL sin and fall short if the glory of God ..how can it be that The blood will not cover sin of the believer..
Sorry Kay ..gif ..But very contradictory..???
