In the annual ritual of atonement, God sent Moses to give clear and precise directions to Aaron, chosen by God to officiate as a high priest among the Levite priests. For the annual atonement rite, Aaron was to provide two goats taken from among the Israelite people. So says the biblical text:

"And from the congregation of the children of Israel he will take two goats for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering." Leviticus 16: 5

The two goats that were to be used in the ritual of atonement were to be taken from among the Israelite people. They were goats that should be offered voluntarily by any citizen of the children of Israel. As it would symbolize the true Lamb of God offered free by the Creator of the Universe, the goats should also be a voluntary offering.

Once he had the goats in his hands, the High Priest should choose one at random. Casting luck on the two, one would be defined as the scapegoat, who would suffer death and have his blood used in the ritual of atonement. So says the biblical text:

Firstly, the text defines that one of the goats would be the scapegoat, the biblical text does not define it like this, it defines that one of the goats would be the lord's goat and the goat will be offered for the sin atonement, therefore it does not say that the goat is a scapegoat but yes that with his offering he makes atonement for sin, that is to say that the goat's blood would be used in the atonement rite but there is no clear one so says the Lord that one of the goats would be defined as a scapegoat, he was not defined thus, he was only defined as the Lord's goat.

We must understand the term para, one goat is for the Lord, and another for Azazel, para is a preposition can mean several things, in this case the goat for the Lord is not to make atonement for the Lord's sins, we have others points, the goat is the Lord's or the goat has the Lord's name on it.

"And Aaron will cast a lot on the two goats: One lot for the Lord, and the other lot for the scapegoat. Then Aaron will bring the goat, on which the lot falls by the Lord, and offer it for atonement for sin." Leviticus 16: 8, 9

Let's contrast the text given with another version and it says:

Leviticus 16: 8 Aaron will draw the lot between the two goats, using two stones, one with the name of the LORD, and the other with the name of Azazel.
Leviticus 16: 9 The goat that belongs to the LORD will be killed by Aaron as an offering to take away sins,

See that the term "by", in this version defines "belongs", see that a term says " lucky for the scapegoat ", and in the other version it determines that there are two stones one with the name of the Lord and another with the name Azazel.

At first the two goats carried identical representations and symbolisms: They were voluntary offers; they were not acquired by price, nor were they the fruit of tithes returned in kind. In a second moment, the goat that had been lucky by the Lord, came to be seen as the Lord's goat, and it was the goat that died to supply the blood that was used in the atonement. The Lord's goat came to have an extraordinary symbolism and representation: He was God's offering to atone for the people's sins. For this reason, at first, it carried the condition of being a voluntary offer, the result of the generosity of some selfless Israelite.

As a goat of the Lord, he carried the condition of being a free gift from God himself. The Jewish people should understand that in the annual atonement, God himself is the one who made a voluntary sin offering. It was God offering a sacrifice for the sins of all the people. The offer of the annual expiatory rite was not for one person; it was a generic offer for the whole people. So says the biblical text:

The idea of ​​paraphrasing that the gift of an Israelite represents the gift of God is just a mere speculation of the idea, God gave Jesus freely as a lamb to be killed, but even this does not give the right to paraphrase that the Israelite who gave the goat represents God giving to Jesus. Mere speculation was put here and never a clear one says the Lord that the Israelite represents God. In almost the whole of the ritual, God is only conceived in the ark and in the manifestation of the "Shequinaw" outside this becomes a speculative matter.

"Then he will cut off the atonement goat, which will be for the people, and will bring his blood into the veil; propitiatory ". Leviticus 16:15

Comparing with another version we have:

Leviticus 16:15 Then Aaron will kill the goat of the sacrifice to take away the sins of the people, take the blood into the Most Holy Place and sprinkle the lid of the ark with him and in front of the ark, as he did with the blood of the young bull.

See one of the goats is for sacrifice and another would not be killed, because the two goats were to make atonement, the difference is that one was to be killed (to sacrifice) the other was not.

As the Bible shows us, the annual atonement rite was not meant to individualize or personalize the atonement. The atoning act was generic, done on behalf of the entire chosen nation. Since the atonement was generic, any of the children of Israel could take possession of its merits. Anyone who, repenting of their sins, could benefit from the atonement that was made for the benefit of all the people.

Here there is another speculation which is to say that "it had no character to individualize or personalize the atonement", the ritual does not define whether the blood has the character of representing the purification by parts or not since:

Leviticus 16:15 Then Aaron will kill the goat of the sacrifice to take away the sins of the people, take the blood into the Most Holy Place and sprinkle the lid of the ark with him and in front of the ark, as he did with the blood of the young bull.

Here it says that "it will kill the goat of the sacrifice to take away the sins of the people", why if in the original rite in heaven sin is taken one by one until it reaches all the people, it does not violate the symbolic representation of the sanctuary ritual, therefore to say that the character is not to individualize is mere speculation. Logically, anyone who repents enters the part of the ritual, if at once or in parts it is not defined. If the goat's blood contains sin part by part, it does not violate the symbolism of the blood.

We know that the rites of the ancient earthly tabernacle pointed to Christ, especially the annual atoning rite. When the moment came for reality to meet the shadow, for the transitory to meet the eternal, all the representative images had a real fulfillment. Just as the goat that represented Christ was designated as the Lord's voluntary offering, the real Christ was God's greatest offering to men. So says the biblical text:

"Knowing that it was not with corruptible things, like silver or gold, that you were rescued from your vain way of life that you traditionally received from your parents; but with the precious blood of Christ, like a spotless and uncontaminated lamb". 1 Peter 1:18 and 19

Another important fact that the biblical text of the Old Testament reveals is that the "goat for the Lord" was not a personal, individualized offer, but a generic offer made in favor of all the people.

Again, when reality meets the shadow, when the eternal meets the transitory, what the annual rite pointed out had its exemplary faithful fulfillment. Christ's sacrifice was neither individual nor personalized. Christ, the reality to which the shadow pointed, did not die for any individual in particular, even though you and I can imagine that Christ died for us. The Bible states that the Son of God was sent into the world to suffer death for all mankind. So says the biblical text:

First, we must have the following idea, in the ritual of the Sanctuary, who was taking part? Now it was the repentant Israelites, the unrepentant Israelites were not part of the ritual, nor were the unbelievers. Here the term is clear "take away the sins of the people", so Christ died for his children, whether they are just one or several, it does not matter, what matters is the primary function that is the law of love, whether with one or with several. About sins, and the death of Christ, the atoning blood is on those who will be saved, the lost will bear all sins, and more, even the good works of the lost will not be remembered. See the text:

Leviticus 16:16 So he will make atonement for the sanctuary because of the defilements of the children of Israel, and their transgressions, and all their sins. Likewise, he will do for the tent of meeting, which is with them in the midst of their impurities.

The question is from whom will sin be purified? The answer is "from the defilements of the children of Israel", so the children of Israel receive purification.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish, but have eternal life." John 3:16

"The next day John saw Jesus coming to him and said," Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. " John 1:29

The word world can have two strands:

1 - World, local land, part of the land, region.

2 - World, worldly situation, people who practice the actions of worldliness, lust and others.

When Christ takes away sin, sin leaves the earth and goes to heaven through the atonement to make intercession, but God loved the worldly or " everyone who believes in him ", now God loved him who believes in him, because

Hebrews 11: 6 Indeed, without faith it is impossible to please God, since it is necessary for those who come to God to believe that he exists and that he becomes a rewarder for those who seek him.

Malachi 2:16 For the LORD, the God of Israel, says that he hates repudiation and also he who covers his garments with violence, says the LORD of hosts; therefore, take care of yourselves and do not be unfaithful.

In other words, God loves everyone who " believes ". For only those who will have " eternal life ", others the blood of Christ cannot do anything for them.

Having been killed by humanity, any man at any time can take possession of the atoning sacrifice of the Lamb of God. Unfortunately, many who do not understand the simple and clear message of the Bible have traded intercession for the atonement and preach that today Christ is in the Holy of Holies individualizing his atoning sacrifice in order to purify the Heavenly Sanctuary. For this to be possible, for the atonement to be made in the Holy of Holies individually and in a way that reaches the faithful of all ages, as the author of the book To the Hebrews says, Christ would have to have died many times since the foundation of the world. So says the biblical text:


"Because Christ did not enter a sanctuary made by hands, a figure of the true, but in the same Heaven, to now appear for us before the face of God; nor even for himself to offer himself many times, as the high priest enters the sanctuary with alien blood; otherwise, it had been necessary for him to suffer many times since the foundation of the world, but now in the consummation of the centuries he once appeared, to annihilate sin by sacrificing himself. Once again the judgment came after this, so also Christ, offering himself once to take away the sins of many, will appear a second time, without sin, to those who await him for salvation ". Hebrews 9:24 to 28

In Heaven, the atoning offering for the sins of the world has been made for a long time. What Christ does today in Heaven is the work of intercession for all the living who accept Him as Lord and Savior.

Here the author makes a serious mistake, Christ is not only the lamb, he is also the priest, the priest intercedes and the lamb makes the atonement, the atonement, that is, the placing of sin on the lamb occurs since the foundation of the world. As the text says:

Revelation 13: 8 and all who dwell on the earth will worship it, those whose names were not written in the Lamb's Book of Life who was slain since the foundation of the world.

Soon the lamb was killed from the foundation of the world, so that every time a man sins, sin is brought to Christ, but earthly death occurs once, but the practical action of death takes place since the foundation of the world. One thing is certain for there to be an atonement, a confession about the lamb is necessary before killing it, let us imagine the author's idea as true. Therefore, salvation could only be for all sinners who had confessed their sins before the death of Christ. For the later ones would need to confess and then immolate Christ again in order for their sins to be forgiven. People who do not confess their sins on the lamb are not forgiven.

With the death of Christ, Christ obtained the power to carry sins through the blood, and these sins can now be taken to the heavenly sanctuary to be interceded no longer as a lamb, but as a priest.

Therefore, the dead lamb has the function that each person in every period of time, from the foundation of the world to the closing of the door of grace, can send his sins from earth to heaven, so that the high priest can in the period of cleansing the sanctuary. intercede for the people.

And where does it determine that the priest intercedes for everyone's sin?

In the text that says

Leviticus 16:21 will put his hands on the animal's head and will confess all the guilt and faults and all the sins of the Israelites. So Aaron will put the sins of the people on the head of the goat and then send the goat into the desert. A man will be chosen to take the animal,

We find the term "will confess all the faults and faults and all the sins of the Israelites", here the term demonstrates all faults and faults sins, as a private listing one by one.

So in a period of the ritual there is a time when the High Priest "will confess all the faults and faults and all the sins of the Israelites", being the time for the cleansing of the sanctuary.

We see, therefore, that the author ignored the double action of Christ as a lamb that gains the power of atonement, and as an intercessory high priest, and also ignored the temporal action of intercessory action, which can only occur after the power to atone, without atoning the priest. he cannot intercede, therefore Christ obtaining by death on earth the power to atone can ascend to Heaven in order to make intercession. Now intercession is not done by the lamb, but by the priest, now Christ is also the lamb, but as a lamb expiates and as a priest intercedes.
