Why did Jesus have to die for our sins?

Q7: Only a Creator could die for our sins?

Hypothesis: Why did Jesus have to die for our missing?

Introduction: Some say Jesus was just a prophet, an extraordinary man, yes, but not GOD and NOT a creator. Some say Jesus never pre-existed as a member of the heavenly Elohim kind. Indeed Elohim is a family kind of beings who are all Creators and Divine and one Family known as GOD. There are not three families who are Divine, but only one Family who are equally interested in our salvation. Such a Family is required because they share love, and love is requires relational communication within members of it's own kind.

Discussion: Here is a powerful passage concerning our missing:-

Heb 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption

Animals do not sin, because their missing is not held accountable before GOD. Only humans have the will to transgress the power of GOD, and thus continue living because of God's grace, while humans are found missing the power of GOD.

The concept of sin is a concept of missing power from GOD . Indeed all power for living comes from GOD. God breathed into the dust , the breath of the Holy Spirit and mankind became a living machine. The Holy Spirit lives personally in all living things, and takes into account our use of GOD's power for living, and for salvation.

So if that which comes from GOD, leaves you partially less empowered, than only GOD could supply more power, that is missing from your life. The sacrifice of an extraordinary sinless person, nor an angel, nor a human from another unfallen world, could supply that power for life. No. Only God could supply that which was missing, for we who sin, are found caught in a "living death", with our lives continually 'missing God's power'.

Ge 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Did not GOD say that very day, when found missing my power, you would surely dying die. When Adam sinned was something found missing from him forever, that was never replaced? Yes...People assume death means the end of life, but it properly means from Scripture, the missing of GOD. And if God moves away from your biochemistry you are in fact dead, a non-living thing of dust.

Notice what left Adam that very day was the body personal presence of the Holy Spirit, that surrounded him in a garment of solid light. So Adam became naked as the Holy Spirit shrank deeper inside him, exposing a living dead, over his soul. Indeed Adam was found missing, that very day, it was the presence of GOD that was missing.

Blood is a symbol of life, which is a symbol of that missing, the power of God that gives you ongoing living. Without the personal presence of GOD there is no life, there is no ongoing living, and your living is a graceful upholding of God until you experience salvation, or not.

Can GOD experience missing God in a relational sense, that causes GOD to lose something forever? Yes, this is possible, if a part of the Divine was to lose an attribute of the eternal forever, than that which we humans have missed can be replaced by that which GOD has given up for that missing.

This principle if like replacing like, is a profound principle of Scripture, and tells us the extreme sacrifice for overcoming our missing.

  • Ex 21:24 Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
  • 25 Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.

    When humans were found missing GOD, Yeshua Jesus came to the Father to give His life for replacing that which was missing, and so Jesus emptied Himself and added humanity to His Divinity, and in doing so would give up His Omnipresence, thus replacing for eternity one attribute for another that was lost with humans. In this sense Jesus, a Creator God, did experience the missing of GOD as He died, while at the same time allowing humans to have His eternal attribute for ongoing living, through His death.

    An extraordinary human though sinless could not achieve this substitution of like for like, cancelling eternal missing with eternal giving of a Divine Attribute of power. Thus the sacrifice requires Godly powers that only the Family of God could provide.

    Some say when we die there is an immortal spirit that lives on....yes there is, but it not you, it is the Holy Spirit that leaves you. Death is a experience where you are missing God for eternity. And as you experience this for 3 days or without time, your relational communion with God ceases, and you experience the second death of non-existence, being without God. You are found missing. Death is not the end of life, but the eternal loss of something relational, the presence of GOD. Could Jesus have experienced this in the grave? Yes

    Ps 22:1 My God (Father), my God (Mother), why hast thou forsaken me?

    Notice as Jesus replaces our missing with His divine powers for ongoing living, Jesus' powers are "switched off" in the grave.

  • Joh 10:17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
  • 18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

    The Father comes to awaken His Son, and the Son rises from the grave with His Divinity "switched on" again. The missing vanishes because the Father has returned to His Son, and ongoing living continues. Think of sin as the loss of something relational, and death is the final end of a relationship with GOD. Death is not the end of something, it is a relational condition, the permanent missing of God's presence. Shalom
