A Perfect Atonement



And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom wehave now received the atonement. Romans 5:11.



{FLB 105.1}The infinite sufficiency of Christ is demonstrated by His bearing the sins of the

wholeworld. He occupies the double position of offerer and of offering, of priest and of

victim.{FLB 105.2}


In the atonement made for him the believer sees such breadth, and length, and height,and depth

of efficiency--sees such completeness of salvation, purchased at such infinitecost, that his soul is

filled with praise and thanksgiving. He sees as in a glass the glory ofthe Lord, and is changed into

the same image as by the Spirit of the Lord. {FLB 105.3}


The great High Priest has made the only sacrifice that will be of any value. Theincense that is offered now by men, the masses that are said for the deliverance of soulsfrom purgatory, are not of the least avail with God. All the altars and sacrifices, thetraditions and inventions whereby men hope to earn salvation, are fallacies. . . . Christ isthe only sin-bearer, the only sin-offering. . . . {FLB 105.4}


Priests and rulers have no right to interpose between Christ and the souls for whom Hehas died, as though invested with the Saviour's attributes, and able to pardontransgression and sin. They themselves are sinners. They are only human. {FLB 105.5}


Prayer and confession are to be offered only to Him who has entered once for all intothe holy place. Christ has declared, "If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father,Jesus Christ the righteous." 1 John 2:1. He will save to the uttermost all who come toHim in faith. {FLB 105.6}


The Elder Brother of our race is by the eternal throne. He looks upon every soul whois turning his face toward Him as the Saviour. {FLB 105.7}


The heaviest burden that we bear is the burden of sin. . . . He will take the load fromour weary shoulders. He will give us rest. The burden of care and sorrow also He willbear. He invites us to cast all our care upon Him; for He carries us upon His heart.
