This is the only way we could gain that access to the Lord, was through Jesus Christ. We could then impress upon the Lord our sufferings of life. Men did this in Bible times, and He was moved with compassion to heal them. This all came through the immense suffering and a great price as Jesus Christ who was brutally beaten, died on Calvary. It was all this and more.
The Sinless man, Jesus Christ became Payment for sin as the sacrifice of His innocent blood. He became the one and only way that sins could be remitted. No animal could actually satisfy the payment for sin to a Holy God. But man must be able to apply this sacrifice to their lives, just as men in the temple days had to bring their own sacrifice.
John:3:5: Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Men must sacrifice by repentance of sin, and being baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. This is necessary because we must have a sacrifice for our sins, else when we die, God will see all the sins that we have committed, having been uncovered. This is being born of the water.
Romans 6:3: Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
4: Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Having taken on His death, we do not have to die for sin.
The Holy Ghost lives in us and helps us walk on a straight and narrow path. Jn:3:5: Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. In Mark 16:17 Jesus Christ also said if you believe you shall speak with tongues, among other things. Though many preach believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved, Jesus said that your belief must end in speaking in tongues and the works of the Spirit. Remember the scripture said you SHALL be saved, not that you are saved. James said that faith without works if dead, meaning that you cannot just rely on saying you believe, but the works of faith must be there. These works are provided by the Lord Jesus Christ when you truly believe. when you are born of the water and spirit, speaking in tongues, you are saved.
This is the reason that the Apostle Paul whom Jesus gave the keys to the kingdom said: Acts 2:38: Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
39: For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
This is the reason that Jesus died. He died that men would not have to spend eternity in hell. He shed his precious blood on Calvary that all men could believe and be saved, having and experience with God, and continuing in a personal relationship with Him.
Hopefully your Easter will bring to you all Jesus Christ intended for his suffering to bring.
