“Having? therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living: way, which he hath consecrated for ùs, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.” What is the one .way that man can have forgiveness of sin? (Eph. 1 : 7 ; Col. 1:14) “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, ac­ cording to the riches of his grace.” Is there any other possible way that sin can he put away? (Heb. 9:22) “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood: and without shedding of blood is no remission.” What is the one secret of victory over sin? (Rev. 12:11) “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” For what will thé saints praise God in heaven? (Rev. 5:9) “And they Rung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereofi for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed ns to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.” What was the plan of God behind all the blood sacrifices of the Old Testa-, ment? (Rev. 13:8) “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” To what, then, did these sacrifices of olden times point? (Heb. 9:11-14) “But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having ob­ tained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” When Christ’s sacrifice was ac­ complished, what effect did this have upon the sins of those in the past who had offered in faith? (Rom. 3:24, 25; Heb. 9:15)

“Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a pro­ pitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remis­ sion of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God.” “And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the trans­ gressions that were under the first testa­ ment, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.” Has Christ perfectly fulfilled the Old Testament plan of salvation? (1 Pet. 1:10-12) “Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now re­ ported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.” Is it true that Christ died simply as a martyr to a good cause, or is there alto­ gether another purpose in His sacrifice? (1 Pet. 3:18) "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit.” What does the Bible plainly declare to be the one purpose of His death? (1 Pet. 2:24) “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” What was God’s purpose in the cross? (2 Cor. 5:21) “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” Is there any other effect from appro­ priating Christ as our personal substi­ tute, than just taking away the penalty of our sins? (Tit. 2:14) “Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.” If we have truly had the vision of Christ dying in our place, from what will our hearts be severed? (Gal. 1:4) “Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, accordiug to the will of God and our Father.”
