For the sake of clarity, we could consider God as one instant in time, and avoid the problem of a time interval, regardless that Christ lived for 33 (?) years for example.
So God being love, we see his action on and in and through Christ, in “consuming” our sin, just like “Pac-man” (please excuse the vulgarity of this comparison).
Love consumes our sin, consumed perhaps in that it is forgiven, is always forgiven, and can be nothing less but forgiven.
Forgiveness and removal (THE NON EXISTANCE OF) sin, are the same thing. Sin does not exist, because God, the consumer of sin, the forgiver of sin, and the nullifier, destroyer of sin, lives. [or “is” ] [I am that I am].
Already a “fait accompli”, we see the reality and the totality of it, in Christ. In his life, in his body, in his death and resurrection.
IT IS FINISHED. The argument for or against redemption is finished. It has all been satisfied, all equations balance, all conditions met.
IT IS OVER. There is no more discussion, or argument, or questioning, IT IS FINISHED, all met in the body of Christ, the son of God, the “love child” of the heavenly, spiritual, Father; and the earthly, carnal mother. The union of heaven and earth. [with license].
IT HAS TO BE FINISHED IN US. And it finishes in us when and as we acquiesce to it, accept it, agree to it, to this “covenant” that is so one sided as to be unnecessary.
Our joining to this “state” means we will come under attack from “the world” and those “in the world”, seeing as how they are “of the world”.
Christ’s action HAS transferred us into “his kingdom”. The situation is that it is all done, only the disbelievers, in their own mind, their own thinking, remain in the old system [which is already fading away]. God has moved on, and takes the believers with him.
Regardless of whether we believe it or not, he has done it. At the “end”, those who are “without wedding clothes” will be speechless, and will be removed from “the kingdom”.
“Believing” is a composite thing that means we enter his kingdom voluntarily, willingly, and hopefully, lovingly.
and so we know and rely on the love God has for us
