What does the Sacrifice of Christ Promise us?

"Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity, so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death - that is, the devil - and free those who all their lives were held in slavery be their fear of death." Hebrews 2:14

Christ died so that we may be released from death. Though he came as the Son, he is the Father that came to this earth to save his Children from his sins, that is why the Scriptures say:

"For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham's descendants. For this reason he had to be made LIKE his brothers in every way.." Hebrews 2:16

We know that Abraham's descendant is Isaac, then what is that in relation to us?

"Now, you brothers, like Isaac, are children of promise." Galatians 4:28

When Christ died on the cross he saved us from the slavery of sin of death. If no death is existing then this leads to eternal life. He did this for the descendants of Abraham. Then just like Isaac is a descendant of Abraham, we too share in that promise. What is the promise?

"And this is what he promised us - even eternal life." 1 John 2:25

"For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance." Hebrews 9:15

However, it is important to understand why we, like Isaac are children of Promise. Abraham had another child, Ishmael, whom which was not given the promise. Why is that? Ishamel was born of the slave woman..

"But what does the Scripture say? Get rid of the slave woman and her son, for the slave woman's son will never share in the inheritance with the free woman's son. Therefore brothers we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman." Galatians 4:30-31

"But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our Mother." Galatians 4:26

As Children of the free woman, it is the Mother that is the determining factor in the inheritance. Just as Isaac was given the promise, so we, as Children of God are given the promise of eternal life through God our Mother, the free woman and the sacrifice of God our Father who came for a second time to reveal to us his bride, our Mother.

"I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband." Rev 21:2

To those who are called, they receive the eternal inheritance, then who is calling us?

"The Spirit and the Bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" Whoever is thirsty let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the Water of Life." (Eternal Life) Revelation 22:17
