Hebrews 9: 16-17 "In the case of a will, it is necessary to prove the death of the one who made it, because a will is in force only when sombody hads died; it never takes effect while the one who made it is living."
**God enforced a will for mankind. The will couldnt go into effect until God sent his son to be the dying covenant for our dying souls inorder for us to live in eternity.
Back in the days of Moses, sacrifices for cleansing consisted of blood from animals and a death of some kind. Jesus used his blood of his death to give us life. We are living if and only if we are living for God. Our cleansing process comes from new sacrifices which are from giving ourselves to God and living soeley for him. (1) We live holy; we never die, instead we go forth to forever praise Jesus in heaven and reap the awards we earn from living in this world. (2) If we live unholy, we are indeed dead in our hearts and we reap the firey death. Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross using your blood to save the undeserving.
Living and/or dying is like getting your education. If study, have a great work ethic, pass the test, and continue to prevail you graduate and receive the benefit of making a better life for yourself, BUT, if you don't study, but you party hard, drink, smoke, skip class, and don't take pride in your education you flunk out and cost yourself paying back loans and maybe NOT having the life you deserve. Like living (living a Christian life), if you live holy, if you triumph Satans attacks, if you keep your faith, and if you work hard for Christ, you inherit the kingdom of heaven and receieve mansions, awards, and trophies. *Doesn't that sound promising*. Just like living an unholy life, if you don't follow Gods orders and live for the world,if you are loving money, if you are partying, if you are getting drunk, if you are being sexually immoral, you die. And the death that you face is of hell and the firey lake for eternity. (Its pretty hot during the summer no one wants to live in that for the rest of the rest)
We all have the opportunity to go to heaven. Jesus died for us all but, we chose to live unholy. Jesus' deed is done. God's job is done. WE have to work on ourselves to get to
