3.   God's Salvation

.  Conclusion

Introduction

"Once" - "Once only; once for all". This is an adverb denying a repetition;

This expression is in effect an abbreviation for "one time and for all time."

It implies that it will not be done again. As a settled matter, finally, permanently, decisively (Cf. Heb 7:27; 9:12; 10:10).

Once for All

Hebrews 7:27 "Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself."

Hebrews 10:10 "By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all."

1. Christ's Sacrifice

Heb. 9:26 "For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself."

The blood offered by the Jewish priest was that of animals; that offered by the Saviour was His own.

It removes transgression from the soul.

Hebrews 9:28 "So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation."

The offering which Christ made was wholly for others; that of the Jewish priest for himself as well as for other offerers.

2. Man's Sentence

Hebrews 9:27 "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:"

It is not the effect of chance.

It is not that man is merely subjected to the laws of nature.

 It is the result of intelligent appointment, and there is an adequate cause.

Romans 5:12 "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:"

We are all under sentence of death!

It is for sin that all are doomed to death.

The poor wretch in the dungeon; the king in his palace!

Genesis 3:19 "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return."

Man is in the state of mortality;

He had become liable to all the miseries of this life and to the pains of death.

Only one life

You can take all the treasures

From far away lands,

And take all the riches

you can hold in your hands.

And take all the pleasures

Your riches can buy,

But will it help

When it's your time to die?

Chorus:

Only one life

So soon it will pass,

Only what's done for Christ will last.

Only one chance to do His will

So give to Jesus all your days.

It's the only life that pays,

When you recall

You have but one life!

2. Man's Sentence

Hebrews 9:27 "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:"

Man is to be judged once, but once and will not to be repeated;

The decision is final, and no one can repeal.

Ecclesiastes 12:14 "For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil."

"There was a remarkable oneness in the great events which most affected men; and neither death, the judgment, nor the atonement could be repeated." (Barnes)

3. God's Salvation

Hebrews 9:28 "So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation."

Christ has accomplished his work;

He comes to save them from all their sins.

Now God provides eternal salvation to all who will believe.

Hebrews 7:25

"Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them."

1 Peter 5:10-11

"But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen."
