All the Sins of Mankind

Posted on May 7, 2017 by


It is impossible for us to do what is right before the eyes of God. We are not capable of completing a single task. Since the fall of mankind we are cursed with sin. It flows through our mind and body like a sickness. But we are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousness are like filthy rags; We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, Have taken us away. Isaiah 64:6 (NKJV)  As it is written; there is none righteous… because all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:10,23 (NKJV) The righteousness that comes from God is without flaw. Jesus Christ walked this earth completely sinless. He did what the Law could not do because of the weakness of the flesh so that the righteousness of the Law could be fulfilled in us through Him.

  There is no other way to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but to be righteous before God. How then with our sin filled minds and bodies can we justify ourselves? That is an impossibility. We have to accept the fact that we are totally depraved. We are incapable of doing anything right. Look at the world around you. Do you see anything getting better? Every single day I see mankind reach a new low. I promise you that in the end, if it were left up to us, we would totally destroy this earth and everything in it. All of us are like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way, But the Lord has caused the inequity of us all to fall on Him. Isaiah 53:6 (NASB)  Job tells us that if he would see himself as perfect he would be perverse, and Isaiah said, Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people with unclean lips, for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of Hosts. Isaiah 6:5 (NKJV) When we look upon the Holiness, righteousness, and perfection of Jesus Christ we then see ourselves as we really are and we confess our depravity.

Praise God for His wonderful gift of eternal life that He gave us through Jesus Christ. God demanded  perfection for a sacrifice to pay the debt of our sins. He literally placed Himself on the cross because what God demanded, only He could provide.  “Through His flesh He provided righteousness, holiness, justification, and sanctification of our souls.  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.  For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,  that the righteous requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” Romans 8:2-5 (NKJV)

  In Him:  We have been redeemed through His blood and have been forgiven of our sins according to the riches of His grace. We no longer walk as a people who has been condemned to death. We live as eternal beings in Christ.

  In Him:  We have been made to know the mystery of His will according to His kind intention which He purposed for us. The mystery of salvation and His church have been revealed to us in these last times. We no longer have to wonder what God has planned for us.

In Him:  We have a glimpse, an understanding, of the times to come. When all things will be summed up in Christ, in heaven and on earth.

  In Him:  We have obtained an inheritance, and we have a purpose for our life through Him.  We are not workers or slaves, but we have received adoption  as sons and daughters of God. We are coinheritors with Jesus Christ of all creation. We are not yet sure what we will be, but we know when we see Jesus we will be like Him.

  In Him: After we heard the message of the truth of the gospel, of our salvation, we believed. We were then sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise who was given to us as a pledge of  our inheritance.

In Him: We are enriched in all speech and knowledge through our personal relation with Him by the Holy Spirit.  We were chosen before the foundation of the world was laid that we would be holy and blameless. God made Jesus Christ, who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf so that we might become righteous before God. 2 Corinthians 5:21 (NASB) He bore our sins in His body on the cross so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds we are healed. 1 Peter 2:24(NASB)

In Him: Our righteousness is not derived from the law, but through faith in Christ, we have righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. What we were unable to do for ourselves God did for us through the sacrifice of His Son.

  When through faith we accept the finished work of Jesus Christ we receive the life His death accomplished, and through Him we have imputed righteousness. We are justified by faith just as if we had never sinned. When God looks down at us He sees a pure, sinless being because the sacrificial blood of Jesus Christ covers us like a blanket. When Jesus died on the cross, we died with Him. In Galatians 2:20 Paul tells us, “I have  been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.” (NASB)

As believers we are dead to sin and we are raised with Him to a new life, a new creation where all things of the past are gone.

All the sins of mankind have been forgiven. Truly I say to you, all sins shall be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they utter  Mark 3:28 (NASB)  The price has been paid. Your redemption letter has been nailed upon the jail house door. The door is open and you are free to go. Your debt has been paid. Wouldn’t you like to take a minute with me and pray to God, Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I believe you took the pain of the cross to give me new life. I ask you to come into my life and to give me your peace and joy. I confess that I am a sinner — that I have gone my own way and have done wrong. Please forgive me for my sins. I receive you now as my Lord and Savior. Please fill me with your Holy Spirit. Help me to follow you and to serve you all my life. Thank you, Lord Jesus. Amen.
