VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Touching the LORD will make her unclean

"“Don’t cling to me,” Jesus said, “for I haven’t yet ascended to the Father."

1. JESUS is not yet offered to the FATHER (1 John 1:1, Isaiah 52:11, 2 Corinthians 6:17)

1 John 1:1 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

We proclaim to you the one who existed from the beginning, whom we have heard and seen. We saw him with our own eyes and touched him with our own hands. He is the Word of life.

Isaiah 52:11 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Get out! Get out and leave your captivity, where everything you touch is unclean. Get out of there and purify yourselves, you who carry home the sacred objects of the Lord.

2 Corinthians 6:17 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the Lord. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you.

2. JESUS became sin for us. (2 Corinthians 5:21, Hebrews 9:11, Hebrews 9:21)

2 Corinthians 5:21 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.

Hebrews 9:11 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

So Christ has now become the High Priest over all the good things that have come. He has entered that greater, more perfect Tabernacle in heaven, which was not made by human hands and is not part of this created world.

Hebrews 9:21 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

And in the same way, he sprinkled blood on the Tabernacle and on everything used for worship.

B. The disciples became His brothers, His FATHER became our FATHER, and His GOD became our GOD. (John 1:12, 2 Corinthians 6:18)
