Jesus died for Dennis Prager's sins
Updated: Jul 16, 2022
Dennis Prager doesn't think anybody would die for his sins. He should read Isaiah 53 and take it to heart.
Isaiah uses two words synonymous for sin(s): transgression(s) and iniquity(ies)
Isaiah 53:5 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.
Verse 5 says Jesus was wounded and bruised for OUR sins. His stripes are what 'healed' us, ie paid for our sins, because Jesus died and bore our sins.
Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Verse 6 says the Lord laid OUR sins on Jesus.
Isaiah 53:8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
Verse 8 says Jesus was stricken for OUR sins.
Isaiah 53:10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin...
Verse 10 says Jesus' soul was made an offering for OUR sins.
Isaiah 53:11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
Verse 11 says Jesus bore OUR sins. God's anger for our sins was satisfied by the travail Jesus' soul endured in hell... because he bore our sins.
Isaiah 53:12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
Verse 12 says Jesus bore OUR sins. Jesus was 'numbered' with the sinners. Jesus bore the sins of many people AND he made intercession for the sinners.
Romans 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Jesus is in heaven right now making intercession for us.
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. 26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; 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.
Jesus is our high priest who offered HIMSELF up ONCE for OUR sins.
1 John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2 and he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
Propitiation is an act that appeases God. Jesus is the propitiation that appeases God and pays OUR sins, ie the sins of the whole world.
The reason Dennis doesn't believe Jesus died for his sins is... he doesn't even believe what Moses said.
John 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
"Faith & Freedom" comes through Jesus, the Son of God.
John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Hopefully, Dennis will come to believe the gospel one day.
1 Corinthians 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 by which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 5 and that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: 6 after that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
