Go Outside The Camp

10 We have an altar from which those who worship at the tabernacle do not have a right to eat. 11 For the bodies of those animals whose blood is brought into the most holy place by the high priest as a sin offering are burned outside the camp. 12 Therefore, Jesus also suffered outside the gate, so that he might sanctify the people by his own blood. 13 Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing his disgrace. 14 For we do not have an enduring city here; instead, we seek the one to come. ~ Hebrews 13:10-14CSB

Every right we have was paid for us by Christ Jesus. He went before and made a way for us. He did this by first being crucified outside the camp. What does that mean? Well, we can look at the camp as the world. The world is like the soul of the earth, and it’s bound to the number of days the earth has left until it will no longer be found on Judgment Day (Revelation 20:11). Jesus was crucified outside of the world. We have many rights because of this, but two main ones are that:

  1. We are no longer a part of the world but called out of the world ( John 15:19).
  2. We can be saved regardless of the time period in which we are born (John 20:29).

If Christ were crucified in the world, He would not have been able to call others out of the world. Christ had to be crucified out of the world in order to ensure each and every person who has ever lived had the opportunity to either accept His salvation or decline it.

Everything God does is for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purposes. Therefore, we must go outside the camp, outside the world we currently live in, in order to find the God who loves us and created us. The world may offer us shiny objects, but what Christ is offering is eternal. One day, the world will no longer be here, but there will never be a time when Christ is not here. He is the first, the last; the beginning, the end; the Alpha, the Omega. He is our Eternal, Everlasting God. Nothing on this earth can truly give us a replacement for what He’s offering; it’s all just a cheap knockoff.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Go Outside The Camp.
