Hi Deborah
Thank you for your reply.

.
 5  Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: note

 6  In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.

 7  Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

 8  Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law       


V 5 The body of our Lord was planned from the foundation of the world to remove sin caused by satan through Adam no other sacrifice could achieve this only the lamb of God.
V 6 God had no pleasure in the temple sacrifices they could never eradicate sin from the world some thing better was needed the next verse tells us what it was.
V 7 It is the body of our Lord Jesus the OT  is full of prophecies concerning our Lord of his coming of his sacrifice his resurrection all of which God had planned in advance.
V 8 here we see that none of the temple sacrifices were good enough the question is why were they needed I think that our Lords sacrifice was all of them rolled into one.
We know our Lord complied with law and was sinless.

Love and Peace

v5-7 are a quote from Psalm 40 - the end of the sacrificial system had actually been prophesied by David!

v8-10 are the writer's interpretation, and should be taken together.

v5-7 David owed a debt of gratitude to God that no sacrifice could be great enough to fulfil. But a life of obedience is a kind of sacrifice - and David's heartfelt desire to obey God foreshadowed the perfect obedience of the Son as He embarked on His mission to rescue the human race.

Hi Deborah
Thank you for your reply and reference to the psalms.



 9  Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.

 10  By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

 11  And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:

 12  But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God       


V 9 Here we see our Lord taking on the full responsibility of salvation knowing full well what it would entail even death on the cross.
V 10 here we see the one time sacrifice for the sins of the world now can we give enough thanks for this wonderful gift.
V 11 Here we see the comparison between the old covenant and the new and through his sacrifice the old covenant was cancelled with its sacrifice and service.
V12 here we see the result of his one time forever sacrifice to sit at the right hand of God from there he will come again to judge the quick and the dead.

Love and Peace

v8 The paradox of the Law was that, even though God had commanded animal sacrifices to be made, they were not acceptable to Him as a means of atonement. The blood of Jesus succeeded where animal blood had failed, because He was a willing, rational and morally perfect Victim.
v9 Because in His perfect obedience He fulfilled all the requirements of the Law, He was able to make His human body a sin-offering on our behalf, and thus set the entire sacrificial system of the Law aside. For this reason, Christianity is not just a 'reformed' variety of Judaism, but something radically new.
v10 We have been cleansed by Christ's death and made fit to remain in the presence of a holy God for ever. We are His holy people, no matter how badly we have behaved in the past, or what sins we might commit in the future. 

Now we leave Psalm 40, and the writer goes on:
v11,12 So we can see that the priesthood of Christ is very different from the Levitical priesthood. For over a thousand years, those priests had been making sacrifices every day, as the Law commanded. Because their work was never-ending, they were always on their feet. But we are told that our High Priest is seated - and that can only mean that His sacrificial work is finished. He has made just one offering, and it has been accepted.
Now since it is an honour even to stand in God's presence, how much greater must be the honour given to Christ, who is seated! (Psalm 110:1)
v13 "and since that time He waits for His enemies to be made His footstool." (The writer is still thinking of Psalm 110:1) Nothing and no-one can prevent Christ's work from being completed.

Hi Deborah
Thank you for an excellent post a blessing to all those who read it

.

 13  From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.

 14  For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

 15  Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,

 16  This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;     


V 13 who are our Lords enemies they must be all those who don't believe who will be made his footstool I believe this will happen at our Lords return when he takes up his rightful place as King of Kings and Lord of Lords " come Lord Jesus come "
V 14 This position was acquired when he offered himself as the perfect sacrifice without spot of blemish for the sins of the whole world.
V 15 Here we have the perfect witness the Holy spirit who testifies to all the words of scripture so we can have great confidence that everything we are told is true.
V 16 The same Holy Spirit is the one who writes all God's words on our hearts and minds now wonderful is that.

v14  By dying for us, Jesus has procured not only forgiveness for our sins, but also our ongoing purification from every form of uncleanness. Thus our sanctification, like our forgiveness, is grounded on Christ's perfect sacrifice; it is His achievement, not ours.
We are made holy to God 'once and for all' when we become Christians; but there is another sense in which we don't become holy overnight. Our lives need total reconstruction - and this is also something that Jesus will do for us.
v15,16 This chimes in with Jeremiah's prophecy, where God specifically promises that under the new covenant His people will be enabled to live genuinely holy lives. (This is what having the Law 'written on our hearts' means)

Hi Deborah

Thank you for your reply


Heb 10:17  And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
Heb 10:18  Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
Heb 10:19  Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
Heb 10:20  By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh     


V 17 I believe this has to do with the gift of the Holy Spirit its the Holy Spirit that writes on our mind and our hearts I think it can be different for different people for some it can be a quick prosess for others it can take a longer time its as God sees fit.
It is the Spirit that cleanses us and blots out our passed sins and God forgets them.
V 18 when our sins are forgiven there is no more sacrifice for sins it has been accumplished once and for all time through the blood of Christ but if we do sin we have an advocate with the father and if we confess our sin it will be forgiven.
V 19 this verse is breathtaking here we have access to the holiest of all to the father himself through our lord Jesus Christ to wonderful for words.
V 20 All the above is made possible by the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ he has brought in the new covenant the old has gone the new has come let us give thanks for this wonderful gift.

v17 God can 'forget' our sins only because we have already been made perfect in His sight: our sins have been taken away, and He no longer sees them. We can neither be shamed by them now, nor condemned for them later!
v18 Only one sacrifice could effect this momentous achievement - but now that it has been made, there is no need to repeat it or add to it. It is 'the sacrifice to end all sacrifices'; the old system has been abolished at a stroke. To persist with it now is not merely pointless, but an insult to the blood of Christ.

Modern Bibles start a new paragraph here. The writer draws a breath and then starts to draw out some of the implications of what he has been saying. It's not just ivory-tower theology; it has many practical applications.
First of all, he summarises what Jesus has achieved for us in verses 19-21:
v19 The blood of sacrificial animals gave safe passage into the Most Holy Place only for the high priest, and only for a few brief moments; but the blood of Jesus gives all His people free right of entry for all time, without fear of judgement.
v20 There is no other route by which we can approach God (John 14:6). Jesus' physical body was the true Temple, the interface between heaven and earth. When He died, the curtain in the Jerusalem Temple was also physically torn apart (Luke 23:44,45), dramatically symbolising the breaking down of the barrier between God and sinful human beings, and the opening of the way into heaven for all of us.
v21 "and since we have a great priest over the house of God..." Jesus now lives for ever in God's presence, able to provide for all our needs.

Therefore... verses 22-25
