    11And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

    The Atonement of Christ has reconciled the elect world to God. It secured and ensured for it [ the elect world] every spiritual blessing needed to live unto God and for His Glory through Jesus christ.

    Even before the elect are born into this world as sinners, they have already [by the blood of Christ] been reconciled to God, it will now be a matter of time for it to be manifested.

    The atonement accomplished the complete salvation for all whom it was offered for, that is the death of christ. It provides them Faith, repentance, sanctification, redemption, and every needful spiritual blessing to convert them to God, and remain secured forever.

    Deliverance from unbelief !



    Unbelief is one of the sins that the elect world is saved from, thats the significance of this portion jn 16:8-9.

    8And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

    9Of sin, because they believe not on me;


    The Holy Spirit convicts the elect unbeliever of sin and gives them faith.

    Paul is an example, he was an elect who in unbelief rejected Jesus christ and persecuted His followers, being blinded by the god of this world, but when it pleased God, He revealed in Him Jesus christ and he became a believer.

    1 tim 1:


    12And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;

    13Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

    14And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith [to believe] and love which is in Christ Jesus.

    15This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

    Being saved experimentally is being delivered from unbelief .

    16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

    The Fact is, no one Jesus christ died to save, can ever die in unbelief, that would defeat one of the main purposes of His death accomplishments.

    What are the objectives and effects of the death of christ ?

    Why was it important for those He shed His blood for ? It provided unto them redemption per eph 1:

    7In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

    The word for redemption is:

    apolytrōsis and means:

    releasing effected by payment of ransom

    a) redemption, deliverance

    b) liberation procured by the payment of a ransom

    The death of Christ procured the Liberation of His people who had been captive by satan and under his power of darkness.

    So all them whom Christ redeemed by His blood are recipients in time of the Spirit of Liberty.

    2 cor 3:17

    Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

    It is written of Christ in the OT Isa 61:1

    The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

    also lk 4:18

    The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

    So, one of the objectives and effects of the death of christ for His People is their redemption which secure unto them their regeneration, or birth by the Spirit, which gives them Spiritual liberty !

    So Jesus says John 8:36

    If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

    That word make is the greek word
    eleutheroō:


    to make free

    2) set at liberty: from the dominion of sin

    The Son does this by His Blood, the redemption is in His Blood, Shed for the Many..

    What are the objectives and effects of the death of christ ?

    Another accomplishment of the Death of Christ, it ensured the Spiritual cleansing and sanctification of all those He died for. The church.

    eph 5:

    25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her

    26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,

    27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. NIV

    Jesus pointed that out in His Prayer Jn 17:

    19For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.

    I went through this exercise once on here & nobody wished to participate.

    Try Propitiation as one piece of the puzzle

    more on the accomplishments !

    Jesus blood shed was in order to sanctifiy the people, those people he shed His blood for heb 13:

    12Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

    Those Jesus christ died for, it ensures them, the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit and the belief of the Truth 2 thess 2:

    13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

    He prays for this very blessing right here Jn 17:

    19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. [ see heb 13:12]

    20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

    This applies to all future believers, for Jesus says which shall believe !

    Thats a promise that they shall believe, because of the sanctifying work of the Holy Ghost in them.

    All this by the blood of Christ.

    It ensures belief of the Truth -



    The death of Christ, as i have shown from scripture, ensures sanctification fo those who He died Jn 17:

    17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

    19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

    So, Jesus death ensures the Sovereign sanctiying work of the Holy Spirit, which results in belief of the Truth.

    2 thess 2:

    13But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

    Its absolutely impossible for anyone whom Christ died, not to believe the Truth as it is in Christ Jesus, for the Holy Ghost of His, is for certain to lead every blood sanctified soul into the Truth Jn 16:

    13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth:

    So all those God wills to be saved and come into the Knowledge of the Truth as per 1 tim 2:

    4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

    They will sooner or later be subjects of the Sovereign Sanctifying work of the Spirit unto belief of the Truth.

    This is a accomplishment of the Atonement of Christ.

    Redemption from all iniquity !



    Titus 2:

    14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify [cleanse see Eph 5::26] unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

    The Atonement of Christ has been successful, and has accomplished that what God intended.

    It was for redemption from all iniquity [ to include unbelief] and purification from all sin and unrighteousness.

    For that was the Divine Purpose for which Christ gave Himself for His People [ church], in order that they should be Holy and blameless before God in Love,

    unto which cause God chose and predestinated them, that they should be conformed to the Holy Image of His Son, hence it was not possible for not one sin to be committed, which was outside of the counsel and purpose of God, and for which Christ did not give Himself for as an Offering, and make a full and perfect Atonement.

    It Heals spiritually !

    1 pet 2:24



    1 pet 2:

    24Who 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.

    The healing [ Spiritually] is the sure effect and benefit of His stripes [ or atonement], and His death in His own body on the Tree for sins of His church, His elect, His sheep, without fail secures and ensures their death to sin, and their being made alive to righteousness, even the righteousness of Faith.

    Many today really do not understand the power of Christ death and it's accomplishments.

    Purpose and accomplishment of Christ death





    2 cor 5:


    15And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.

    Paul here in this context gives us another purpose and accomplishment of Christ death for sinners.

    He died for all [ the called or chosen or church] that [in order that] they which live [ spiritually] should henceforth [ no longer, no more] live unto themselves, but [ nevertheless , rather] unto Him which died for them, and rose again.

    So the very death of christ, produces in them He died for, a life of self sacrifice, and living unto Him, the crucified life.

    This is why paul boasted in the power of the cross in his own life writing gal 6:

    14But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

    The cross effects each life of those Christ died for to one degree or another, but it produces results, it bears fruit. jn 12:

    24Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

    The atonement satisfies God's justice. Justice demands that every sin be punished, without exception.

    So, because One who did not deserve the punishment took it, many who deserve it will not have to take it.

    Isaiah 53:8 He shall see the travail of his soul and be satisfied.

    Yes to the fullest for those Christ died for, so much so, they cannot be punished for any sins..

    Yes, and Christ did just that, for those given to Him by the Father !

    Amen, all those for whom Christ died ! He took their punishment already.

    Yes and also vs 10


    10Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

    Redemption provides New Birth !



    One of the reasons why Christ came to this earth, was to be made under the Law, for His Members [ of His Body] in order to redeem them from the curse of the Law, and that they may receive the Adoption of Sons !

    Gal 4:

    4But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

    5To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

    That is to receive the Spirit of Adoption. Rom 8:15

    For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

    This Spirit is given Sovereignly to all Christ redeemed with His blood, simply, all for whom He died !

    Made of a women for who ?



    Gal 4:

    4But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

    The objects of redemption when Christ was made of a women, that is, when He was made Flesh and Blood, it was not for all of mankind, but for the seed of Abraham per Heb 2:


    14Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

    15And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

    16For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.

    His Flesh and Blood Identification, when made under the Law, born of a women [ The virgin birth] was limited to a certain segment of mankind, the seed of Abraham.

    And this seed, was not limited to a certain segment of mankind, as the jews may have thought, but it consisted in all who would believe in Christ, jew or gentile Gal 3:29

    And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

    So, Christ was made under the Law, born of a women, to redeem the seed of Abraham, all those who should believe in Him through the Spirit of adoption !

    Redemption secures unto Christ believers in Him [of the seed of Abraham], by the Working of the Spirit of Adoption !

    In being made of a woman and made under law, He took on the seed of Abraham and not the seed of mankind in general, for all mankind is not the Seed of Abraham heb 2:

    16For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.

    Now in taking on the seed of Abraham, Paul says that He was made sin for us !

    2 cor 5:

    21For he hath made him to be sin for us [The seed of Abraham], who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

    Who are the us in 2 cor 5 21 that Paul is referring to ? Is it all mankind without exception ? No it is not. Let us examine the scripture to find the answer. " When the fulness of time had come, God sent forth His own Son [meaning He was God's Son before Mary's Son], made of a women, made under the law, to redeem [ not to make redemption possible] them [ His members, His body] that were under the Law [Limited redemption]that [in order that] they may receive the adoption of Sons.

    Now coming as such [ under the law] He came and took upon Him the seed of Abraham. The seed of Abraham is a chosen people !

    PS 105:6

    O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.

    Isa 41:8

    But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.

    So its plain that He came and Identified with and to redeem a Chosen People, and not the whole world of mankind.

    In taking on the seed of Abraham, He took on all their Transgressions, and died for their sins !

    Isa 53:

    4Surely he hath borne our [seed of Abraham] griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.


    5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

    6All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

    7He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

    8He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

    9And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

    10Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed [The seed of Abraham], he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

    11He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many [The seed of Abraham]; for he shall bear their [The seed of Abraham] iniquities.

    1 cor 15:

    3For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our [The seed of Abraham] sins according to the scriptures;

    Yes, in all places above where we see the pronouns our, us, we, their, it refers to the seed of Abraham !

    Lets not forget it is written that He took on the seed of Abraham Heb 2:

    16For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.

    More on the accomplishment of the Atonement !



    In taking on the seed of Abraham, being made sin for us, what does this mean ? Does it mean that He actually became sin , as I understand some believe ? No, not at all; but what it does mean is that He became our sin offering, by bearing our sins Isa 53:

    11He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

    12Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

    The word bare in this verse is the hebrew word
    nasa' and means:

    to cause one to bear (iniquity)

    To receive the punishment of sin upon oneself for others !

    Heb 9:

    28So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

    1 pet 2:

    24Who his own self bare our [seed of Abraham] sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

    1 jn 3:

    5And ye know that he was manifested to take away our [seed of Abraham] sins; and in him is no sin.

    Like the scape goat, He bare away the sins of Israel, that is took them away cp jn 1:

    29The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

    Lets not forget in this connection that it is written that he took on the seed of Abraham heb 2:

    16For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.

    For it was with this seed only He stood Identified with, in lieu of the seed of the serpent !

    It was for this seed he bare their sins in His body on the tree, for it was as the seed of Abraham that he was recognized by the law and justice of God, as being responsible for their sins. So He was made a sin offering for their sins, bearing their sins in His body on the Tree.

    More on the accomplishment of the Atonement !



    heb 2:

    16For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.

    For it was with this seed only He stood Identified with, in lieu of the seed of the serpent !

    It was for this seed he bare their sins in His body on the tree, for it was as the seed of Abraham that he was recognized by the law and justice of God, as being responsible for their sins. So He was made a sin offering for their sins, bearing their sins in His body on the Tree.

    Think with me for a moment, if a crime is committed by ones hand, is not true that the life of the body of which that hand is a member be liable to law and justice for the crime ? For thats why it is written that Jesus is the Saviour of the body per eph 5:

    23For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the Saviour of the body.

    In line with this Truth and subject, the High Priest confessed the sins of Israel [ the seed of Abraham] only over the head of the scape goat, and it was said their [ Israel's] sins were laid upon the head of the scapegoat and borne away per Lev 16:


    20And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat:

    21And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness:

    22And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.

    It is in this way Jesus was made sin for the sins of us [ The seed of Abraham] by becoming their sin bearer; for He was also made a curse for His People gal 3:

    13Christ hath redeemed us [seed of Abraham] from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us [seed of Abraham]: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

    Also made a curse !



    It is in this way Jesus was made sin for the sins of us [ The seed of Abraham] by becoming their sin bearer; for He was also made a curse for His People gal 3:

    13Christ hath redeemed us [seed of Abraham] from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us [seed of Abraham]: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

    The first we read of any curse is gen 3:

    17And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

    and this curse is the result of Adam's Sin who BTW is the Forefather of Abraham see Lk 3:34 which was the breaking of the Law of God, the covenant of God, that Adam broke covenant is seen here:

    hos 6:7

    But they like men [Adam] have transgressed the covenant: there have they dealt treacherously against me.

    Well Christ as the substitute on the cross for the sins of the seed of Abraham, not only bore the curse for them, but became a curse for them, so that, when Christ took away their sin on the Tree, He redeemed them out of the curse of the Law and Covenant deut 29:21

    And the LORD shall separate him unto evil out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in this book of the law:

    Gods people whom Christ died for can never be called cursed i.e Num 23:

    7And he took up his parable, and said, Balak the king of Moab hath brought me from Aram, out of the mountains of the east, saying, Come, curse me Jacob, and come, defy Israel.

    8How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I defy, whom the LORD hath not defied?

    cp 2 cor 5 19 & rom 8:33

    For Christ has become a curse for them already and has borne all their charges !

    Now, it should go without saying that those who will yet hear these words from The Saviour, the Seed of Abraham Matt 25:

    41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

    cannot be any for whom Christ died for substituted for. Those can be only cursed for this Gal 3:

    10For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.

    These are born under the curse of the law and remain so, with no redemption, and so shall hear those dreadful words in the day of Judgment.

    They were not of the seed of Abraham or of the woman, but of the seed of the serpent ! see gen 3:14-15

    More on the accomplishment of the Atonement !



    Now, regarding the substitutionary death of Christ for sinners, that in and of itself was not able to meet the righteous demands of God's Law, for to merely punish the innocent and clear the guilty was also a violation of Gods Law which Christ came to fulfill. prov 17:15

    He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.

    However, the Head being Identified with it's body may be charged for the crimes of the body i.e eph 5:

    23For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the Saviour of the body.

    30For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

    He identified with His body in taking on the seed of Abraham ! He had the redeemers right to redeem His people as the nearest of kin to them, and holding by virtue of a higher status, as the firstborn in the seed of Abraham, because they too partook of flesh and blood heb 2:


    14Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same;

    16b but he took on him the seed of Abraham.

    You see, He substituted for those who were of the seed of Abraham, they all belonged to the same seed line, He and they !

    Heb 2:11

    11For both he that sanctifieth[ The Seed] and they who are sanctified[The seed] are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

    Christ is the seed of Abraham Gal 3:16

    16Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

    Believers that belong to Him are the seed of Abraham Gal 3:29

    29And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

    When did God make us alive together with Christ ?

    eph 2:



    4But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

    5Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved)

    6And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

    The answer to the question is in purpose and objectively we were raised up together with Christ at the same time He was raised up by The Father. That is what Paul is teaching here. ​
