Title: Complete Defense

Text:
Application: What would be your defense strategy in a trial where you knew you were guilty. Everyone stands guilty (). We need a great defense and our defense is found in Christ Alone.
1 John 2:1–2 NKJV
1 My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.
Romans 3:9–10 NKJV
9 What then? Are we better than they? Not at all. For we have previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin. 10 As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one;
1 john 2
James 2:10 NKJV
10 For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.
Eom 3:9-10
Romans 6:23 NKJV
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

NOTE: Business Decision Mistakes
Example: We all make mistakes
1. One is the almost urban-mythical story of how these elite leaders turned down Southern Airline’s offer to make Birmingham its southeastern hub in the 1940s. According to the story, the city’s small-thinking leaders believed Birmingham’s airport was big enough for the needs then. But they really feared the international flights could bring in too many folks unwilling to accept the “Southern way of life,” the story goes. The airline company went instead to Atlanta, became part of Delta Airlines, and the rest is history.
2. An inventor named Alexander Graham Bell made an appointment with Western Union to sell them on the idea of something called a telephone. Western Union’s president gave his answer: “What use could this company make of an electrical toy?”
3. A Michigan banker advised Henry Ford’s lawyer not to invest in the new motor car company, assuring him, “The horse is here to stay, but the automobile is only a novelty.”
4. A inventor named Chester Carlson came up with a new machine that was able to make copies of documents. He approached IBM, but they told him they weren’t interested. Kodak told him the same. Finally, Carlson approached a small company called the Haloid Corporation, which took the idea and renamed itself Xerox.
I have personally made mistake, and you have too. Our mistake is called sin and it cost us everything, but we have someone who stands in our defense
Note: listen to the different translations
2 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense — Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. 2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
NIV
2 My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.
NKJV
1. Stands in our defense.
Jesus not only is our defense attorney but he does something unique in that role. He acknowledges our guilt.
Romans 8:32 NKJV
32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
2 Corinthians 5:21 NKJV
21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
- These Things
Advocate
these things—(). My purpose in writing what I have just written is not that you should abuse them as giving a license to sin but, on the contrary, “in order that ye may not sin at all” (the Greek aorist, implying the absence not only of the habit, but of single acts of sin [Alford]).
Last Week: indicators (Real Encounter (HS living in us), Walk in Light bc of confession)
In order to “walk in the light” (, ), the first step is confession of sin (),
the next () is that we should forsake all sin.
The divine purpose has for its aim, either to prevent the commission of, or to destroy sin [Bengel].[1]
When all is said and done and we stand before the Savior trying to prepare our defense
What will we say?
I didn’t mean too…
They made me do it….
I didn’t know….
You see we will stand guilty
righteous—As our “advocate,” Christ is not a mere suppliant petitioner.
He pleads for us on the ground of justice, or righteousness, as well as mercy. Though He can say nothing good of us, He can say much for us.
It is His righteousness, or obedience to the law, and endurance of its full penalty for us, on which He grounds His claim for our acquittal[2]
Not only is Jesus our defense attorney but he is the sacrifice (propitaiton)
2. Ready to deliver us.
Propitiation- They had no doubt that sin inevitably arouses the strongest reaction from God. God is not to be accused of moral flabbiness.
He is vigorously opposed to evil in every shape and form while he may be ‘slow to anger’ (, etc.), his anger is yet certain in the face of sin. We may even read ‘The Lord is slow to
Numbers 14:18 NKJV
18 ‘The Lord is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation.’
Hebrews 7:26–27 NKJV
26 For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens; 27 who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.
Hebrews 7:26–28 NKJV
26 For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens; 27 who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself. 28 For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints the Son who has been perfected forever.
Mercy Seat of God on the Ark - Commandments Broken in the box and above was where God met with them. It was the mercy seat where blood was sprinkled, but God made the ultimate sacrifice there.
Hebrews 9:11 NKJV
11 But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation.
26 For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens; 27 who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself. 28 For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints the Son who has been perfected forever.[3]
Hebrews 9:12 NKJV
12 Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.
The Heavenly Sanctuary
Matthew 20:28 NKJV
28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
11 But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation. 12 Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.
Ephesians 5:2 NKJV
2 And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
Even in a passage dealing with the longsuffering of God his refusal to condone guilt finds mention. The thought that God is slow to anger is to men of the OT far from being a truism. It is something wonderful and surpassing. It is awe-inspiring and totally unexpected.[7]
You see what an amazing thing God did
aIt is a trustworthy statement:
For if we died with Him, we will also live with Him;
12 If we endure, we will also reign with Him;
If we deny Him, He also will deny us;
13 If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.
NASU

He is the author (Lev. 26:46), interpreter (Ps. 119:34), and applier (Jer. 31:33) of the law.

YOU DONT HAVE TO EVER WORRY ABOUT HELL WHEN JESUS IS YOUR SAVIOR<< NEVER
Matthew 13:42 NKJV
42 and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Matthew 25:41 NKJV
41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:
Reason:
41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’[10]
3. Able to redeem us.

Every sin ever committed by every person who p 48 has ever lived will be punished in one of two ways. Either God’s wrath will be satisfied when all unrepentant and unbelieving sinners suffer eternally in hell (Matt. 13:42; 25:41, 46; 2 Thess. 1:9; Rev. 20:15), or for all who, by the convicting and regenerating power of the Spirit, repent and believe savingly in Jesus, God’s wrath is satisfied by the punishment of Christ Himself on the cross (John 3:14–18). Divine punishment rendered forgiveness according to God’s sovereign love and grace (cf. Rom. 3:24–26).

not for ours only but also for the whole world
You see its not limited to just a few but all who come to a realization that they are sinners and fall before the Mercy of God and say:
1. I need you
2. I am sorry (Repentance)
3. I accept you
4. I will live for you.
Realizing we are sinners and need him…
John 3:14–18 NKJV
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.[11]
