Essene Part 7
By Michael Shaw

Jesus as a Sin Offering?

From what we have discovered thus far, we know that God does not require a sacrifice and that the Old Testament sacrifices were made to Demons rather than to God, until Moses got them to offer them up to God alone.  Therefore, ultimately there can be no salvation in Jesus death on the Cross as we understand it today.  Rather, Jesus message or mission to earth was twofold: (1) It was sapiential, which means, Jesus came to give us knowledge on how we were to behave.  (2) Jesus came to stop animal sacrifice.

Due to the fact that humanity was enslaved to Satan, it is easier to see Jesus as a ransom for both our unintentional sins on earth, and as a substitute for the sheep who would otherwise be sacrificed to Leviathan.  However, since Moses got the Hebrews, thus the Jews, to offer their sacrifices to God rather then demons, we can also see how misunderstandings over Christ's death has appeared in Church doctrine. (See Salvation in the Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church).

We Must Die for Our Own Sins:

The accepted belief of Christians today is that Jesus came to earth and was offered up to God as a holy sacrifice for our sins.  However, this belief held by today's Christians cannot be true.  As we have already seen the Bible says, God did not tell us to sacrifice; that He does not require sacrifice and never will.  This includes Jesus.  Quite plainly, Jesus was not a sacrifice to God for our sins.   We will see in a moment that scripture plainly states that we must die for our own sins, those which we do on purpose; nobody else can do that for us. (An example of an intentional sin could be this: we know we are not to steal, however, we take a candy bar from the check out lane at the supper market.  It is a clear case, we must pay for the sin, nobody else can pay for it for us.)

Rather than having animals die in our stead, only we can pay for our sins through our own pain and suffering, including through our own deaths.  Deuteronomy 24:16 "The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin."   Jeremiah 31:30 "But every one shall die for his own iniquity" Ezekiel 18:20 "The soul that sinneth, it shall die.  The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him."

I hope to show that Jesus was here to teach us, and to restore the true law.   Jesus wanted to show that the Old Testament had be infiltrated with Satanic doctrines and to point out the True Teachings.

Jesus was not a sin offering to God.

St. Peter tells us that Jesus came to correct errors is found in the scriptures: "That what is true is mixed with what is false, is shown also from this, that when on one occasion - as I remember - Jesus was attacked by the Sadducees, He answered them thus: 'Therefore you are mistaken, because you do not know the TRUE things of the Scriptures, and for this reason you also know nothing of the power of God.  If then Jesus assumed they did not know the TRUE things of the Scriptures, then clearly there are FALSE portions contained in them...."
