Justification By Faith
Christ’s blood, when sprinkled on the conscience, imparts peace. We believe that the blood which Jesus carried into heaven, and sprinkled upon Yahweh’s throne (Hebrews 9:12), is in due time sprinkled by the Holy Spirit on the conscience of His people (Hebrews 9:14, 1st Peter 1:2), by which most gracious act they become aware of their interest in His justifying righteousness, and realize the fact that their heavenly Father hath, for Christ’s sake, forgiven them all trespasses (1st John 1:7; Revelation 1:5).
Justification terminates in the consciences of redeemed sinners. We thus hold that the act of Justification by the power of the Holy Spirit, terminates in the consciences of believers, who through faith are brought to know and rejoice that the satisfaction of Jesus has availed for them, and that they stand for ever accepted and acquitted in the person and through the righteousness of the dear Redeemer (Hebrews 9:14; Hebrews 10:2; Hebrews 10:15-18).
