Most Christians look to Christ to be forgiven of their sins and that believing on Him is the door way to salvation. And do not the scriptures teach us this? Satan will do anything he can to take us away from understanding the infinite atonement.

We often hear the phrase, “We are thankful for His atoning sacrifice.” When studied, we find that His glorious resurrection is the capstone step of His infinite atonement, and when it occurred 2000 years ago the early saints saw it as such. For Christ to go from infinite suffering to infinite glory in those three days changed the world forever, and the early Christians could not contain their joy knowing, “He is risen!” – as proclaimed in the scriptures and so profoundly in Handel’s oratorio “Messiah.”
We find there are seven fantastic accomplishments in His infinite atonement, and seven sub-steps to each of these. Seven is the number of perfection or completion in the Lord’s arithmetic. And the scriptures outline all 49 of these steps.

As we contemplate what He has done, and is doing, and will do for us, it fills our souls with the deepest of gratitude. As we come unto Him and repent, mercy is extended to us satisfying the demands of justice and totally overcoming the effects of the fall of Adam and Eve. He is the way, the truth, and the life to bring us back to the Father. (John 14:6) We praise Him and adore Him forever. And our souls reach to their depths as we thank the Father for the gift of His Son, who worked out this perfect and infinite atonement bringing perfection to Father’s perfect plan of happiness. Our gratitude is overflowing. Think of it, His infinite atonement opens the door to perfection for us along with a fullness of joy and perfection for the earth.
