The Atonement Ark of Safety
Over the past few months we have been studying and discussing the subject of the atonement in the context of the character of God, the sacrificial system and the actual penalty of sin. This study process culminated in the two presentations called:
With a deep sense of wonder and joy we discovered that the gopher wood that the ark was made from is the Hebrew root word for the word brimstone in Isa 30:33.
Isa 30:33 …the breath of the LORD, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it.
The ark provides for us a physical symbol of the protection of the Spirit or breath of the Lord for His people. Those who are filled with the Spirit of God dwell in the secret place of the Most High and abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
The critical element that holds the wood together is the pitch that is applied inside and out. The Hebrew word for pitch actually means atonement or covering. It is the exact Hebrew word used for atonement in the sanctuary service. The covering on the inside carries the emphasis of forgiveness and the Hebrew word variant of atonement for the outside covering speaks to ransom. Only those who grasp the atonement and believe they have forgiveness of their sins and are certain that the ransom price has been paid in full for them will experience the breath of the Lord in its fullness. They dwell with everlasting burnings (Isa 33:14) and the accusations and assaults of Satan against them can’t penetrate the sealing of the atonement around them.
The great problem for humanity has been to discern the meaning of the sacrifice of Christ on their behalf. In what we have understood are the claims of justice, God seems to demand the death of the transgressor and yet in mercy He provides a sacrifice to meet the demands of said justice. The underlying dilemma is that this justice either demands that God kill His Son to be satisfied or to avoid the repulsion of such a thought as child sacrifice, God must mutilate and kill Himself to bring atonement to the universe.
While Child sacrifice is not palatable to most Christians, finding refuge in the oneness of the Trinity in what is termed as self-sacrifice appears to the non-Christian as simple foolishness to satisfy some ideal of justice that causes so much needless suffering. Rather than drawing the soul to God, it repels it in revulsion at such barbarity. God appears like King Saul who made a rash vow and in order to defend the honour of his word, he must maintain his ideals even when most of the kingdom hold their breath in disbelief at such a concept of justice.
In the sermon called the Penalty of Sin. The glass ceiling that has held humanity so long in a cage of satanic perceptions of justice has been shattered. Within my soul, the gates of heaven have swung wide and as I gaze with deep admiration upon the beauty of our Father in the person of His Son, my soul doth magnify the Lord. Having broken through this deep deception of Satan through His counterfeit justice system, for the last time in history, we are enabled to behold a truly merciful Father without one thread of mental or physical force being applied to compel us to worship Him.
This seed that is now planted within the souls of a small community of faith dotted across the world will soon bear fruit in a message that will brilliantly light the earth with its glory.
For those of you that have been on this journey you will know of what I speak and the certainty of the message that we now hold in our hands. A spiritual application of Revelation 12 now comes to mind. In this message of the true atonement knowing that our Father did not desire sacrifice and offering and never asked for burnt offering and sin offering (Psalms 40:6) the character of our Father as revealed in the person of Christ while on earth is now planted in our hearts.
The dragon stands just ahead of us having great wrath, knowing that he shall be shortly bruised under our feet. Within the hearts of those who receive the message, Christ will be manifested and brought forth. Even now I say with Elisabeth:
We do not know what we shall be brethren but we know that when He shall appear we shall be like Him for we now begin to see Him as He is.
To my dearly beloved friends, know that this is indeed the hour of our visitation. Strive to enter into this ark of safety. Plead with the Lord that you might grasp the significance of how the fact that God is not the author of death nor has the power of death changes the meaning of the atonement. If these words you read are too cryptic to understand, then pray for the understanding. Pray to the Lord to show you what is the ark of safety that we must run into and find rest.
We have just released a new booklet called the Penalty of Sin Exposed. Brother Tony Pace has put this together in response to the sermon the Penalty of Sin. We encourage you to read the booklet along with watching the Sermon The Penalty of Sin or Our Merciful Loving Father.
We have tried by the grace of God to gather up the fragments that the Lord Jesus has broken and given to us for our sustenance and placed them in the new book called Agape. We are now printing the book of around 300 pages that addresses the subject of the loving character of our Father. The message in this book is critical for those who are serious about receiving the seal of God. The seal is His name and His name is His character and His character is revealed in the earthly ministry of Christ Jesus our Lord. We are printing 1000 copies in Australia for distribution. Contact Talking Rock Sabbath Chapel to get the book in USA. Canada.
Please study this volume prayerfully and when the joy of the message takes hold, sense in this the call the share it with others. Let the light spread. In the coming months there will also be a video series from each chapter of the book that can be shared for those more accustomed to visual media.
We invite you to join us on our study journey as we life stream our worship services on the second and fourth Sabbath of each month. Please subscribe to the youtube channel if you want to receive alerts and keep up to speed with the latest materials coming out.
We invite you to join the growing awakening to the truly loving character of our Father. Now we bid you come into the ark of safety and receive ye the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ who dwells in the bosom of the Father.
