14 For by one offering he has forever totally cleansed and perfected those who are sanctified and made holy.1
|Hebrews 13:12,9:14 |
12 Therefore Jesus also suffered outside the gate, so that he might sanctify the people with his own blood.
14 How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purge your conscience from dead works [from your own will] to serve the living God?1 [Dead works are decided to be done by the carnal mind and will of men who are dead to the life of God that Adam lost for all men. Works of obedient faith to God's orders are not dead works and are essential works of life. From the Word of the Lord within: "When you are purged from dead works, you are freed from serving iniquity to serving God. Happy are they who serve God in His kingdom." Dead works also include obsolete works of the law such as: sacrifices, circumcision, tithing, days, sabbaths, foods, etc.]
