Our topic is “The Perfect Sacrifice”
Questions to be answered are as follows:
  1. What was the sacrifice requirement?
  2. What was the perfect sacrifice?
  3. What was satan's role in all this?
1. THE SACRIFICE REQUIREMENTS
A PERSON IS ACCEPTED OR REJECTED ON THE BASIS OF HIS SACRIFICE TO GOD IN THE OT
We found out that a bloodless sacrifice is EVIL in God's sight. 2. THE PERFECT SACRIFICE
Jesus fulfilled these requirements given in the Law. He was a male.
He was a man in his prime of life.
He was perfect in spirit, soul, and body.

In the Old Testament they keep the sacrifice separate for several days to examine it daily to make sure it was perfect and without blemish.
Jesus was examined for several days with beatings and whippings to see if He was perfect. You see, under pressure our true nature comes out.

KEY 1 Hebrews 7:22 to 8:6 Once man has accepted the fact that he is sinful, how has he tried to get right with God? to appease the Deity? Every way except the right way.

SUMMARY OF THE PROGRESSION OF THE LAMB SIN OFFERING

1. The lamb was to be for a sin offering for a person
2. The lamb was to be slain
KEY 2
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony.

KEY 3 THIS IS WHY HE COULD SAY OF HIS WORK
  1. Greek 5055 teleo: To make an end or accomplishment. To bring to perfection or to its destined goal. To be completed or fulfilled.
  2. No further need for any more blood sacrifices.
  3. He had fulfilled all of the law and all its rituals.
  4. There is no other requirement but a blood sacrifice.
  5. Never has been, never will be.
The legal demands of sin had been met and in the judicial mind of God a change has occurred in regard to us. He pronounces us clean, clothes us with righteousness, and gives us eternal life. All of this occurs in the throne room.

3. SATAN'S ROLE IN THE ATONEMENT PROCESS.
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
The sin was against God -- Psalms 51:3; Psalms 51;4,etc
We give account of our sin to God - Romans 14:12, etc
The wrath of God abides on us if we do not approach God on His terms - John 3.36
God provided the way of escape from our sin - Psalms 32:1; Romans 10:4, 1 Peter 1:19, Hebrews 9:12, etc
