What Does Hebrews 9:28 Mean?

so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.

Hebrews 9:28(NASB)

Verse of the Day

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 - 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. Right now, Jesus is seated at the right hand of God, making intercession for us all. But one day, He will come back to earth in His glorious Second Coming at the end of the Tribulation period. And for Christians in this Church age, we look forward to the day when Christ will come in the clouds to gather us to Himself, in the wonderful Rapture of the Church.

Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus.

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.
