Promise of salvation by the future blood of Christ.
I personally don’t believe Jesus died for our sins. The way I remember it, during this time period Jesus was teaching to whoever would listen to failings of Judaism and pointed out a better path. The Rabbis at the time convinced the Romans to crucify Jesus and by doing so the local Rabbis would support the Roman rule. The Romans complied and peace was restored.

I believe in Yahashua, The Anointing, the son of God, who laid down his flesh for the atonement of sin .

I do see in Hebrew manuscripts that his coming is prophesied in the old testament.

The new testament explains concerning how that the Anointing in Yahashua is the eternal Spirit of God

1Pe 1:10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: :11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of The Anointing which was IN them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of The Anointing and the glory that should follow.

Believing that the eternal Spirit of God was also IN Yahashua who was conceived by the Holy Spirit of the Father, that this Spirit is truly the very Spirit of The Anointing, that was also the same Spirit IN the prophets of the Old Testament. - The one Spirit of God.

1Pe 1:2 { Peter says, of himself - he, Peter is, Elected according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, by sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Yahashua, The Anointing:

Heb 9:14 explains that is -- the blood of The Anointing, who by the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God,

To me, this means that the fullness of the Holy Spirit of God that was in Yahashua was very his own deity and his very own Spirit itself, his own identity.

Rom 8:10 And if The Anointing be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

Some believers see differently and do not believe that this faith is expressed in scripture and some believers simply honestly do not believe that The Anointing Sprit and deity of Yahashua is the Holy Spirit of God nor believe that the One Eternal Holy Spirit in him was sanctified unto obedience and sprinkled as the shed blood of the Holy Spirit.

Meaning = sanctification of the Spirit , unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Yahashua, The Anointing:

Yahashua paid the price and we are bought with a price
He was perfect, sinless.

I do not believe the scriptures are saying that the Eternal Spirit needed to be sanctified nor needed to become obedient and needed cleaning nor was imperfect but that a Morph of God called Yahashua was perfect and Holy because of the Holy Spirit in him

Col 2:9 For in him inhabited all the fulness of the Divinity physically.

He provided the Perfect and Holy Sacrifice for the sin of man.
