Sins Of Ignorance

Thought For The Week 246 By Val Warsop

I was facedown on the carpet, pleading with Yahweh to tell me what was wrong.  My heart felt empty, my spirit was dry and I had been feeling so bleak.  “What have I done wrong?” I sobbed.  But even Yahweh seemed to have abandoned me.  In desperation I thumped the carpet, wept, and eventually threw out a challenge I was positive He would be unable to ignore.  “If you don’t tell me what I’ve done wrong,” I cried defiantly, “I’m going to believe that nothing is!”  I was confident that this would have to produce a result, for how can there ever be nothing wrong?  Time seemed to stand still. I felt a bit nervous. Had I just threatened Yahweh?  Very slowly the room began to fill with a deafening silence. I could scarcely breathe as every part of me became aware that I wasn’t being ignored. This was the answer.   As I struggled with it, Yahweh spoke to me quietly and oh, so clearly, “So believe it!”

I heard my Father’s Voice that day and had to trace my problem to other sources.  I also had to understand that most of the time there is absolutely nothing between Yahweh and me!  This is the extraordinary power of Yahshua’s blood; He makes us acceptable!  His friend, John, wrote, “…if we walk in the light, as he is in the light…the blood of [Yahshua]…purifies us from all sin” [1 John 1:7]. 

Speaking of the Day of Atonement, the Bible records that the High Priest offered sacrifices “…for himself and for the sins the people had committed in ignorance” [Hebrews 9:7].  Israel was expected to offer sacrifices to cover their personal sins as often as was necessary; the Day of Atonement was to ensure that everything was covered.  Sin and wrongdoing that we confess to Yahweh is forgiven and cleansed by Yahshua’s blood; anything we have done ‘in ignorance’ is also purified!  This is why the Scripture describes Yahshua’s work as ‘a better covenant’ [Hebrews 7:22]. 

Through obedience my life is in harmony with Yahweh, but He continues to work on me, " For by one sacrifice [Yahshua] has made perfect forever those who are being made holy” [Hebrews 10:14].

For the salvation of souls Yahshua laid aside His kingly robes and He came to this Earth, and He paid the supreme sacrifice for those who were lost and bound in sin.
