Day 6 - Eye For An Eye. Death, judgment.

Leviticus 24-25; Psalm 81; Hebrews 9

Capital punishment came often in the old testament. Laws and directives governing social behavior and charity continue to evolve. In Hebrews, we are reminded of what comes after our death.

  • 24:13 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
  • 24:14 "Bring out of the camp him who cursed; and let all who heard him lay their hands on his head, and let all the congregation stone him.
  • 24:15 You shall speak to the children of Israel, saying, 'Whoever curses his God shall bear his sin.
  • 24:19 If anyone injures his neighbor; as he has done, so shall it be done to him:

  • 25:37 You shall not lend him your money at interest, nor give him your food for profit.
  • 9:1 Now indeed even the first covenant had ordinances of divine service, and an earthly sanctuary.
  • 9:2 For a tabernacle was prepared. In the first part were the lampstand, the table, and the show bread; which is called the Holy Place.
  • 9:3 After the second veil was the tabernacle which is called the Holy of Holies,
  • 9:4 having a golden altar of incense, and the ark of the covenant overlaid on all sides with gold, in which was a golden pot holding the manna, Aaron's rod that budded, and the tablets of the covenant;
  • 9:5 and above it cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat, of which things we can't speak now in detail.
  • 9:6 Now these things having been thus prepared, the priests go in continually into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the services,
  • 9:7 but into the second the high priest alone, once in the year, not without blood, which he offers for himself, and for the errors of the people.

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obedience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
