"The Circumcision Made WITHOUT HANDS"

by John & Kelly Sielski
11/18/2017
 
When the hour was come, One Man allowed both Jew and Gentile to lay their hands upon Him, "...and they laid their hands on him, and took him"; thus fulfilling the role of the Old Testament Scapegoat and becoming the Ultimate Sin-Sacrifice, Who would end ALL sacrifices for sin and sins, forever:  "...there is no more offering for sin," and, "...there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins"!  The self-righteous (carnal or natural) mind has an issue with Jesus becoming sin; yet, "...his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree (Cross)," and "...he (the Father) hath made him (the Son) to be sin for us, who knew no sin."  Through the laying on of both the Jews' and Gentiles' hands, Jesus gracefully and supernaturally drew all of our sin, guilt, shame, embarrassment, inferiority, etc., etc., into Himself; bore it all in the Servant-Body of His own flesh.  Jesus fully identified with us all (the whole world)... in our lowest, most sinful state.  He literally (yes, in every sense of the word, "literally") BECAME US!  "For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens..."  The Cross of Jesus Christ did not bring us into union with the Godhead; the Cross of Jesus Christ exposed our union with the Godhead  (even, despite our sin and sins), while simultaneously "circumcising" the very things that were blinding us to... the very things which were creating within us an illusion of separation from... our Divine Union with the Godhead: 1. the External Garment of the false identity of the Old Man; and, 2. the Law of Outward Performance/Obedience, in which the Old Man trusted.  Now, the same that can be said of Christ, our New Covenant High Priest, can be said of us"...holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens."  Because, in our Father's Reality, this is how He has always seen us... even from before the foundation of the world.


Colossians 2: 10-14 (KJV)
10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
12 Buried with him in [*this] baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances [*the Law of Moses] that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
