100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #60 | with Daniel Whyte III

SCRIPTURE -- Hebrews 9:11-15.

On yesterday, we began looking at the roots of our salvation, or the foundation on which our salvation rests. We saw that the Day of Atonement was a very special time for the children of Israel which religious Jews still observe today. This day of Atonement was a day of confession and repentance of sin, a day for the removal of sins in God's sight, and a day for man to draw near to God.

But, not only was the Day of Atonement a day for the children of Israel to observe, it was a day that served as a foreshadowing of things to come. The tabernacle, the priest, and even the bloody sacrifices all pointed to the future when Jesus Christ would come and settle the matter of sin once and for all. We often cringe when we hear about the slaughter of so many animals for the sins of the people. We could not imagine such a thing going on today.

Every aspect of the Day of Atonement had a meaning that was far deeper and more real than the bloody sacrifices seemed to suggest. Today, as we continue this series on the roots of our salvation, I want to share with you those things that the Day of Atonement foreshadowed. The passage which we read from the Book of Hebrews describes the fulfillment of each of these things.

1. The first thing we see in this passage is that we have a perfect priest.

2. The second thing we see in this passage is that because of our perfect priest we have a pure sacrifice.

3. Thirdly, today, we notice that because of Jesus' pure sacrifice, we have a promise of paradise.
