VIII. MAIN BODY:
A. The LORD went once and for all into Heaven not with the blood of animals
"He went once for all into the [Holy of] Holies [of heaven], not by virtue of the blood of goats and calves [by which to make reconciliation between God and man],"
The LORD did all His sacrifices and offering for us once and for all. It must not be repeated. What happened on the cross is a one-time event that only the LORD can perfect. It is finished, completed and done forever.
Hebrews 9:26 (Amplified Bible)
9:26 For then would He often have had to suffer [over and over again] since the foundation of the world. But as it now is, He has once for all at the consummation and close of the ages appeared to put away and abolish sin by His sacrifice [of Himself].
Hebrews 9:28 (Amplified Bible)
9:28 Even so it is that Christ, having been offered to take upon Himself and bear as a burden the sins of many once and once for all, will appear a second time, not to carry any burden of sin nor to deal with sin, but to bring to full salvation those who are [eagerly, constantly, and patiently] waiting for and expecting Him.
Hebrews 10:10 (Amplified Bible)
10:10 And in accordance with this will [of God], we have been made holy (consecrated and sanctified) through the offering made once for all of the body of Jesus Christ (the Anointed One).
And if anyone repeats this even, he is crucifying the LORD over again and opening the LORD to open shame.
Hebrews 6:6 (New King James Version)
6:6 if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.
Levitical human high priests needed to enter the Most Holy Place with the blood of animals.
Hebrews 9:13 (Amplified Bible)
9:13 For if [the mere] sprinkling of unholy and defiled persons with blood of goats and bulls and with the ashes of a burnt heifer is sufficient for the purification of the body,
Leviticus 16:16 (Amplified Bible)
16:16 Thus he shall make atonement for the Holy Place because of the uncleanness of the Israelites and because of their transgressions, even all their sins; and so shall he do for the Tent of Meeting, that remains among them in the midst of their uncleanness.
Hebrews 9:22-24 (Amplified Bible)
9:22 [In fact] under the Law almost everything is purified by means of blood, and without the shedding of blood there is neither release from sin and its guilt nor the remission of the due and merited punishment for sins.
9:23 By such means, therefore, it was necessary for the [earthly] copies of the heavenly things to be purified, but the actual heavenly things themselves [required far] better and nobler sacrifices than these.
9:24 For Christ (the Messiah) has not entered into a sanctuary made with [human] hands, only a copy and pattern and type of the true one, but [He has entered] into heaven itself, now to appear in the [very] presence of God on our behalf.
CHRIST has already set us free from sin, guilt of sin and punishment of sin thru His own blood, He shed His own blood on the cross, and if your faith is towards a lady saint who has not shed her blood for you, then when you die you go straight to hell.
