From Hebrews chapters 7 thru 10, let’s note what Roman Catholicism is. Do you know? We have One Priest, Jesus. We have One Bloody Sacrifice for our sins; Jesus on the Cross 2,000 years ago. And, what Jesus accomplished all by Himself, on the Cross, 2,000 years ago is all our religion and salvation. This salvation from God only comes to those who completely, and only, place their trust and hope for salvation in their One High Priest, Jesus; Who was raised from the dead, and has taken His seat at the right hand of God, the Father, having completed all of His priestly sacrificial work for sins… once for all! Until one fully grasps this most important concept, they will be forever confused as to just how one is saved; and what real New Testament Christianity is. But, what about Roman Catholicism? Is it Christianity? They say it is Christianity. Is it?
Hebrews 7 thru 10 is all about priests, bloody sacrifices for sins, and of when, where, how and how many times a bloody sacrifice must be offered. The New Testament teaches that there is now only One Real Priest. There has been One final Bloody Sacrifice for sins. It was offered 2,000 years ago. That Blood was offered in the Tabernacle that resides in heaven. It was the Blood of the last great High Priest, Himself, that was offered there. And, as has been made crystalline clear. It was offered only One Time… for all persons’ every sin once! There are no more priests, no more sacrifices, no more blood, never to be offered by anyone else, anywhere else, ever again for anyone else… ever! Do you understand this? All that is left is for a poor sinner to embrace this Priest and His Sacrifice for their sins, trusting Him and it to save him from eternal death and hell… and He does; just as He promised. It is a real experience, and it is called the New Birth, where the Holy Spirit enters into a person’s heart and life. It is the impartation of New Life and called regeneration. Without the New Birth by the Holy Spirit with this New Life, a person is not saved and does not possess eternal life; but will perish apart from God and be cast into the lake that burns with fire. They go to hell. It’s either one, or the other, only. See Revelation 20:11 thru 22:15 for proof there are only 2 people, and 2 ends. You get to choose while you are alive in this world. It is incumbent upon you to make the only right choice now!
By Rome’s religion, they ordain new priests. Their priests ‘consecrate’ bread and wine into the literal body, blood and divinity of Jesus Christ. They offer Jesus up as a sacrifice unto God for the sins of those present some thousands of times a day. They say it is Jesus, and they venerate or worship the wafer as being Christ. The priest prays that the sacrifice of the mass that he is offering might be accepted of God on behalf of the sins of the penitents present. What they do today is precisely what priests of Israel under the Old Covenant did back in their day. That system was completely done away with in Christ 2,000 years ago. Rome still does the very same thing today. Is Roman Catholicism Christianity? What do you think? Know Hebrews 7 thru 10, and you know the truth about Rome. It’s what the Book is all about!
