How to receive forgiveness?

How to receive forgiveness?  By Ezekiel Ezra

One thing for sure that noone can die or pay for others’s sin and human sacrifice or semi god(jesus/yeshua) sacrifice is an abomination. Well in the Tanakh there are some verses to describe this:-

Hosea 6:6
For I desire mercy, and not sacrifice, and the knowledge of God rather than burnt-offerings.

Psalms 51:16
(51:18) For Thou delightest not in sacrifice, else would I give it; Thou hast no pleasure in burnt-offering.

Psalms 40:6
(40:7) Sacrifice and meal-offering Thou hast no delight in; mine ears hast Thou opened; burnt-offering and sin-offering hast Thou not required.

Psalms 34:18, 19
(34:19) The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart, and saveth such as are of a contrite spirit. (34:20) Many are the ills of the righteous, but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

Hosea 14:2
(14:3) Take with you words, and return unto the LORD; say unto Him: ‘Forgive all iniquity, and accept that which is good; so will we render for bullocks the offering of our lips.

(you shall use your words as an offering with a realization and deep regret for sin)

Micah 6:6 -8
‘Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before Him with burnt-offerings, with calves of a year old?

Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my first-born for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?’

It hath been told thee, O man, what is good, and what the LORD doth require of thee: only to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.

(do you see that you should NOT give your firstborn for the sin of your soul! If you shall not do that why would God do that? The question of who the “firstborn son” of God is is another discussion but here’s a hint: it’s Israel!)

Jeremiah 7:22, 23
For I spoke not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt-offerings or sacrifices; but this thing I commanded them, saying: ‘Hearken unto My voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be My people; and walk ye in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you.’

(If a blood sacrifice were most important it would have been one of the first revelations. Yet here God is reminding the people that the most important thing is to LISTEN and OBEY the Creator.)

Proverbs 28:13
He that covereth his transgressions shall not prosper; but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall obtain mercy.

1 Kings 8:38, 39
what prayer and supplication soever be made by any man of all Thy people Israel, who shall know every man the plague of his own heart, and spread forth his hands toward this house; then hear Thou in heaven Thy dwelling-place, and forgive, and do, and render unto every man according to all his ways, whose heart Thou knowest – for Thou, even Thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men –

Job 33:26
He prayeth unto God, and He is favourable unto him; so that he seeth His face with joy; and He restoreth unto man his righteousness.

Numbers 16:46 -48
(17:11) And Moses said unto Aaron: ‘Take thy fire-pan, and put fire therein from off the altar, and lay incense thereon, and carry it quickly unto the congregation, and make atonement for them; for there is wrath gone out from the LORD: the plague is begun.’

(17:12) And Aaron took as Moses spoke, and ran into the midst of the assembly; and, behold, the plague was begun among the people; and he put on the incense, and made atonement for the people.

(17:13) And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed.

Leviticus 5:11
But if his means suffice not for two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, then he shall bring his offering for that wherein he hath sinned, the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a sin-offering; he shall put no oil upon it, neither shall he put any frankincense thereon; for it is a sin-offering.

Ezekiel 33:14-19
Again, when I say to the wicked: ‘thou shalt surely die’ if he TURN from his sin and Do that which Is lawful and right, he will surely LIVE. He will NOT die. NONE of the sins which he has committed will be remembered against him.”‘

Eze 33:12 “Therefore you, O son of man, say to the children of your people: ‘The righteousness of the righteous man shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression; as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall because of it in the day that he turns from his wickedness; nor shall the righteous be able to live because of his righteousness in the day that he sins.’ 13 When I say to the righteous that he shall surely live, but he trusts in his own righteousness and commits iniquity, none of his righteous works shall be remembered; but because of the iniquity that he has committed, he shall die. 14 Again, when I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ if he turns from his sin and does what is lawful and right, 15 if the wicked restores the pledge, gives back what he has stolen, and walks in the statutes of life without committing iniquity, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 16 None of his sins which he has committed shall be remembered against him; he has done what is lawful and right; he shall surely live.
