Obtaining Eternal Redemption

obtain redemption(3)

4) Heb 9:11–14: The second half of verse 12 says, “By his own blood he entered once for all the Most Holy Place, obtaining eternal redemption.”

The true, spiritual rest of the Lord, in which he cleanses us from sin, cannot be entered by our effort but by applying the work of Christ (2 Cor 5:17–21).[1]
