If you read through the old testament well, you’ll note that there was always an intermediary (temporary) between the people and GOD; Noah, Moses, Elijah, Samuel, Ezekiel, Elisha, etc… until a permanent intermediary → JESUS came and through Him, we are divinely “brought back” to JEHOVAH.
P.S: In the Old times, sacrifices were made for the remission of sins BUT when JESUS (who has always delighted in us) came, HE PAID THE PRICE → became the “everlasting” sacrifice (Heb 10:12,26-27). Which means that each time a “believer” sins and asks for forgiveness, He/She sacrifices “the Lamb” all over again… which amounts to “GRIEVE” (Ephesians 4:30, Hebrews 3:10, Isaiah 63:10)
Prophesied → Isaiah 53:7 “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.”
Fulfilled → John 19:9
7. The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
8. When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;
9. And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
Prophesied → Isaiah 53:3-5
3. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Fulfilled → John 19:5-6
5. Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!
6. When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.
TAKE HEED!!! → 1 Timothy 6:3-6
“If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
But godliness with contentment is great gain.“
