Louise Teaching on Atonement, Part 2, Monday July 26, 2002

Louis teaching on the Atonement, Part 2 of two parts. Started with an allegory of planting the seed and the ground you plant it on. What kind of ground are you?
Then a story of a Sunday School lesson years ago about a 5 year old who died. How to explain this? The general consensus–all wrong–was it was God’s will to teach us all a lesson, or lessons. Louise challenged this interpretation which usually was invoked with the phrase, “well, if it be God’s will to take this child, then so be it.”
That kind of thinking will kill your faith and belief in the infinite goodness of God. God has never used illness or death to teach us anything.”

Louise Teaching Tuesday July 26 2022 on the Atonement, Part 1

Louise teaching on the Atonement (often translated as “substitutionary” death of Jesus on the Cross who died for all our sins) and what the Atonement was for, such as receiving your healing.

Jesus went to the Cross to provide for everything, including not only healing, but also prosperity, Spiritual life, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus said the “Kingdom of God has come,” not about to come, or come in the past, it it is here, now.

On healing and sickness, for example, God never intended for us to die sick. Read in Isaiah 53, verse 4 and other verses. See below for full chapter. It is one of Scripture’s greatest descriptions of the Atonement and healing. You cannot take healing out of the Atonement.

Isaiah 53 New International Version

53 Who has believed our message
    and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
He grew up before him like a tender shoot,
    and like a root out of dry ground.
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
    nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
He was despised and rejected by mankind,
    a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
Like one from whom people hide their faces
    he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.

Surely he took up our pain
    and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
    stricken by him, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
    he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
    and by his wounds we are healed.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
    each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
    the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed and afflicted,
    yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
    and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
    so he did not open his mouth.
By oppression[a] and judgment he was taken away.
    Yet who of his generation protested?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
    for the transgression of my people he was punished.[b]
He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
    and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence,
    nor was any deceit in his mouth.

10 Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
    and though the Lord makes[c] his life an offering for sin,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
    and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.
11 After he has suffered,
    he will see the light of life[d] and be satisfied[e];
by his knowledge[f] my righteous servant will justify many,
    and he will bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,[g]
    and he will divide the spoils with the strong,[h]
because he poured out his life unto death,
    and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
    and made intercession for the transgressors.
