Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute sin (Rom 4:8)

It is possible to come to a state where the Lord see us as holy only. Where one is so saturated with the Holy Spirit and Jesus Jeshua that we are a shinning light in the world. That God does not see the sin but Them only. It is not that the sin has been totally removed from our life but that the Lord God does not choses to see it. Not because of our righteousness but because of the saturation of the Holy Spirit and Jesus, and Their righteousness.

It is the place of the Holy of Holies, the inner most chamber, the most scared place of the Temple. Where the High Priest could only enter once a year and only under the covering anointing of God's Holiness.

This is the life that is totally submitted and yielded, where the sacrifice of self is complete. Where the consuming fire and flames of the Godhead has cleansed and purified our inner most being: the heart, mind, soul and spirit within is totally yielded, sanctified from within. It is the place of ultimate humility before the Lord - where "self " is no longer.

Mankind's spirit fights this all the way. The flesh does not want to give up it's place. It is the place of ultimate sacrifice; the place where Jesus came to in the garden of Gethsemane. The place where He sweated blood in His agony of choice. Where he finally and totally yielded His will to His Father - "not My will (that you take this cup from Me - find another way to save mankind) but Thine be done".

And it pleased the Father to bruise Him ?? How could it please the God of mercy and justice, endless  and enduring love to put His precious Son, who He loved to distraction, through such an horrific ordeal and death. To cause Him to "become" sin, the very thing that God can not abide? God has no dwelling or connection with sin. He loathes it and can not be associated with it in any form or way. The ultimate test of Jesus Jeshua's love for us, His total selflessness, was His willingness to become the very thing that God loathed and hated in totality.

The most heart felt cry that the world has ever heard is " Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani? My God, My God why have You forsaken Me?"  God the Father had to with draw His presence from His Son because on the cross Jesus had "become" the very thing that God hates - SIN. Jesus had taken upon Himself the curse of separation from God - had become the personification of what God hates, so God left Jesus alone of the cross as a curse to die.

This is the only time in eternity that a schism was created within the perfect unity of the Godhead. Where the Son was separated from the Father and the Holy Spirit (?) But I feel that Jesus was totally alone in the darkness where there is no God - HELL. The state of existence that is completely cut off from God. Entirely and utterly separated from the source of Light and Life. The place of Death.

It is an existence, a dwelling place, a destination. It is not a ceasing "to be" but an habitation.An existing state of being,. And Jesus not only when there on our behalf but He conquered it. He didn't stay there. He came back from the place of Death, he escaped out of it's clutches, it's destruction and ongoing existence. He came back to the place of total union with God again. He rose from the dead to live again.

He fought death and on-going destruction on our behalf and Won. So we could escape that existence with Him.

 He is truly "the One who Saves" Divine God who freely chose to become the sacrificed Lamb of God, to suffer the fullness of the consequence of our sin - total separation from a Holy God. Nothing with-held, totally yielded to God's will, totally dead to self, accepting the totality of separation. And it was at such cost - the one and only time of schism in the unity of the Godhead.

It was the most courageous act of Love and Sacrifice that has ever happened on the face of the earth. Nothing and no one has ever come close to this level of "loss of self". This is why Jesus Jeshua Is the Lamb of God, who is worthy of all honour and praise and glory. He is the KING of Glory personified. Why He and He lone is seated on the Throne of God in the highest place. No one else paid the price - only the Lamb of God. And He shares it with us!

To dwell in the place where God is, is to dwell in a sinless place - the Holy of Holies. To be invited in, is the greatest honour God can bestow on us. It is a place where Jesus' sacrifice has cleansed us completely. Where the consciousness of sin is conquered. It is the blessed Holy place, where He dwells as the Lamb of God.

To dwell there is most blessed, holy and pure and He grants it to whom He will. It is a place to be sort after and fought for with all your being. And it is possible to attain - it is not outside our reach but well within because of who Jesus is and what He has done. Desire it above all else.

Blessed is the man to whom God does not impute sin. Amen


Rom 4: 6-8 ”  David says the same thing when he speaks of the blessedness of the one to whom God credits righteousness apart from works: Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

Psalm 32: 1-2 Blessed is the one whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one whose sin the LORD does not count against them and in whose spirit is no deceit.

Mark 15:34 And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).

Isa 53:10-12 Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush (bruise)* him and cause him to suffer, and though the LORD makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.  After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied ; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities. Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,and he will divide the spoils with the strong,because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

דכָא*  (daka) beat to pieces, break in pieces, bruise, contrite, crush, destroy, humble, oppress,

Psalm 5:4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.

Eph 1:19b-23 That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms,far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
