What Does Hebrews 9:28 Mean?

so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.

Hebrews 9:28(ESV)

Verse Thoughts

Christ was made the sacrifice for our sins, which rendered His ministry as the sin-sacrifice final and complete. Christ appeared the first time to put away sins forever and although today He is sitting at the right hand of the Father and one day will appear for a second time, when He comes to set up His kingdom - His sacrifice for sin was made once and for all - and it was completed forever at Calvary.

Just as it is appointed for every man to die once for his sins - for the wages of sin is death for every sinner, so Christ died on the cross once, and He died to pay the price for every single sin.

He died once to pay the price for the multitude of sins that mankind has committed - so that all who believe on His name would not perish but have everlasting life.

Christ was anointed of God put sin away forever and He alone was qualified to do so. As the eternal Son of God and as the perfect Son of man, He bore the sins of the world alone, and disposed of them all forever.

And He is coming back again for our citizenship is in heaven and our Saviour is in heaven.

Our hope is in heaven and our treasure is in heaven. God is in heaven - and to all who believe that Christ Jesus as Saviour, He will appear a second time.

My Prayer

Thank You Lord for dying for my sins once and for all and putting my sins away forever. Thank You that You are coming back again to take me to be with Yourself forever, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
