The Sinless Lamb Of God
By David J. Stewart | March 2014
1st Peter 2:21-22, “For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth.”
The Word of God teaches that Jesus never sinned, not even in thought. Jesus is the living Word of God, that is, the Word of God incarnate (made flesh). God is holy (morally perfect), incapable of committing evil or of even being tempted to do evil. James 1:13-14, “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.” Jesus is the only biological Son of God. As believers, we are all adopted sons of God (John 1:12).
Jesus is our heavenly HIGH PRIEST, interceding on our behalf in the presence of God the Father...
Romans 8:34, “Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.”
And again we read in Hebrews that Jesus is our High Priest in Heaven, and that Christ was tempted as we are, yet completely without sin...
Hebrews 4:15-16, “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
Jesus paid a debt that He did not owe, because we owed a debt that we could not pay. The Lord left the splendors of Heaven's glory and power, so He could be afflicted, mocked, despised and rejected, physically beaten beyond recognition, spit upon and ultimately crucified as a criminal for crimes that He did not commit. It was only by not saving Himself that Jesus was able to save you and me...
2nd Corinthians 5:21, “For he [God the Father] hath made him [God the Son] to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
This is the IMPUTED righteous of God which is by solely faith in Christ. We are saved by HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” I have no self-righteousness to offer God (and neither do you my friend). It is Christ's sinless perfection that qualified Him as the perfect Lamb of God without spot, nor blemish. 1st Peter 1:18-19, “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” Amen, here again we learn from the Scriptures about the sinless perfection of our wonderful Savior.
In Revelation we find weeping in Heaven because no one was worthy to open the book, but then Jesus came and was found worthy and He OPENED THE BOOK to loose the seals of judgments upon the earth (Revelation 6). Revelation 5:3-5 and 12, “And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. ... Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing..”
Doctrine Of Imputation Refutes Heresy Of Lordship Salvation
The doctrine of imputation blows the heresy of Lordship Salvation sky-high. Lordship Salvation is the false teaching that it is not enough to acknowledge one's guilt of sin before God (Romans 3:19), and believe the gospel to be saved (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). According to the heresy of Lordship Salvation, a person MUST also be willing to stop living a worldly life, must cease from sinful bad habits and stop indulging in a Godless lifestyle to be saved. In effect, you must clean up your own life as a prerequisite to placing your faith in Christ, otherwise proponents of Lordship Salvation claim that God will not accept your faith. This is exactly what false radio prophet Chip Ingram teaches, which is also coincidentally what the satanic Jehovah's Witness religious cult teaches...
Thus, "accepting Christ" involves far more than just accepting the blessings that Jesus' superlative sacrifice offers. Obedience is required. ... So we must do more than simply hear and believe.

“But now the ball's in your court. If you would like Jesus as your Savior. Saving faith is getting in the wheelbarrow. Trusting in His work on the cross, His payment for your sin, His resurrection TO THE POINT that you say, I turn away and repent from my past life in sin, I change my mind and I trust, I get in the wheel-barrow." [emphasis added]

You've just seen evidence that today's Lordship Salvation crowd are in agreement with the demonic Jehovah's Witness cult. Mormons and Seventh Day Adventists believe the same perverted garbage as John MacArthur about repentance. What is Biblical repentance? If you are confused on this issue of repentance and faith, then you need to hear Dr. Hyle's classic sermon...

We further learn from the Bible concerning Christ's sinlessness in Matthew 3:16-17, “And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” God the Father was in effect saying, “I accept My Son as a perfect sacrificial Lamb for the sins of the world.”
The Wicked Blaspheme God By Portraying Christ As A Sinner
There have been numerous evil movies; such as The Last Temptation Of Christ, The DaVinci Code, and Jesus Christ Superstar, which portray the Lord as a fornicator and sexual deviate. Jewish comedian Sarah Silverman blasphemes the Lord continually, as does late night comedy show host Conan O'Brien.
There is no TV show any more Godless and hell-spawned than Late Night With Conan O'Brien. Conan O'Brien, the host of NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien show since 1993, makes a mockery of Hell. In a despicable song titled "Go To Hell When I Die" by a group of perverts who call themselves The Booty Boys, Conan is the featured singer. Conan has really hit rock bottom with this sleaze.
Now Conan has stooped even lower, by blaspheming Jesus Christ on his late night show. The following information is disturbing, and hard to grasp coming from a nation that claims In God We Trust. God bless America? No way!
Jesus 'gay' voyeur on NBC's Conan O'Brien
'You touched my heart, but I hope that's where the touchin' ends'
Conan is a big fool. Psalms 36:1, “The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.” Romans 3:18, “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” Jesus Christ was beaten, tortured, spit upon, reviled and crucified to death for OUR SINS. Do you think God the Father is in a laughing mood when people brag about going to Hell, portray Jesus as a pervert who likes to watch homosexuals commit sodomy, and make a joke about sin? Not for a single second!!! Psalms 9:17, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”
The All Important Doctrine Of Christ
If you get a King James Bible and study its truths as a born-again believer, then you will see the truth as John 16:13 promises.
There are thousands of websites promoting mind, body and spirit teachings that are completely lacking of the Doctrine of Christ. They are websites published by heathens, psychologists, witches and New Agers. They are all Christ-rejecters, although they may vaguely mention some teachings of Christ to deceive others. Many churches today have fallen hook, line and sinker into the Devil's trap of allowing psychologists to enter the pulpit. Modern psychology is of the Devil.
I love the promises of God, for they are the power of God in a believer's life. It is the promise of God by which we are saved (2nd Peter 1:4). Romans 10:13 is a promise that WHOSOEVER calls upon the name of the Lord Jesus shall be saved. That is the same promise found in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Eternal life is a PROMISE from God to those who come to Him for forgiveness of sins by way of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Salvation is not a born-again experience nor a feeling that one has been born-again; but rather, being born-again is a miracle of God, where God honors His promise to save those who believe (John 1:12; 20:31).
The Doctrine of Christ includes: Jesus virgin birth; His deity (He is almighty God); the literal, physical, blood sacrifice of Christ on the heavenly Mercy Seat; Christ's vicarious (substitutionary) death on the cross; Christ's bodily resurrection and ascension into Heaven; the Lord's sinless perfection; the Godhead (Trinity); Jesus being God's only begotten Son, et cetera.
Aren't you glad that Jesus was sinless? I sure am, otherwise He couldn't have been the spotless Lamb of God. If Jesus had sinned even once, He would have been in the same woeful situation as Adam, but without a Savior. Thank God! Thank God! Thank God for Jesus' sinless life (and Jesus is God almighty, Who is incapable of sinning).
1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”
