THE BLOOD OF JESUS

Thursday 04-27-17

 

~TEXT: HEBREWS 9.1-28;

~WHEN ADAM FIRST SINNED IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN, GOD MET THEM WITH SKINS OF THE FIRST SACRIFICE FOR MAN’S SIN… ~AND THE IMPORTANCE OF THE BLOOD WAS FIRST INTRODUCED TO IMPACT MAN’S LIFE FOREVER.

~FROM GENESIS TO REVELATION, THE BLOOD IS THE CENTRAL THEME IN EXPRESSING GOD’S LOVE FOR MAN. 

~Genesis 3; 8:20; 17:10; Exodus 24:8; Genesis 21:22-23; Genesis 31:54; 

 

~WHEN WE BECOME BORN AGAIN BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS… 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Old Things Are Passed Away And All Things Become New” 

~YOU ARE A NEW CREATION IN CHRIST. YOUR LIFE IS IN THE BLOOD AND FROM THE BLOOD.

Genesis 9:4 Says, “But You Shall Not Eat Flesh With Its Life, That Is, It’s Blood.” 

~HOW MUCH CLEARER COULD IT BE? THE SCRIPTURE SAYS THE LIFE OF THE FLESH IS IN THE BLOOD.

Leviticus 17:11 Says, “For The Life Of The Flesh Is In The Blood And I Have Given It To You Upon The Altar To Make Atonement For Your Souls For It Is The Blood That Makes Atonement For Your Soul.” 

~IN THE OLD TESTAMENT THE WORDS “ATONE” AND “ATONEMENT” ARE DEFINED “TO COVER” OR “TO HIDE”. 

~IN OLD TESTAMENT TIMES THEY HAD TO HAVE A CONTINUAL SACRIFICE OF THE BLOOD OF BULLS AND GOATS TO ATONE FOR THEIR SIN. ~THEY STILL HAD THEIR SINS. BUT THE SINS WERE COVERED SO GOD WOULD NOT HAVE TO LOOK AT THEM. 

 

~THROUGHOUT THE PAGES OF THE OLD TESTAMENT THE BLOOD IS THE “FUTURE PROMISE” OF A BETTER SACRIFICE… 

~A PURE SACRIFICE FOR MAN’S SIN.

~ISAIAH 1:11 TELLS US THAT GOD WAS WEARY OF THE OBSERVANCES OF BLOOD WITHOUT THE TRUE MEANING. 

Isaiah 1:11 (Amplified), “To What Purpose Is The Multitude Of Your Sacrifices To Me [Unless They Are The Offering Of The Heart]? Says The Lord. I Have Had Enough Of The Burnt Offerings Of Rams And The Fat Of Fed Beasts [Without Obedience]; And I Do Not Delight In The Blood Of Bulls Or Of Lambs Or Of He-Goats [Without Righteousness].”

~FROM THE FIRST MOMENT OF SIN, GOD HAD PREPARED HIMSELF A BETTER… A PURE SACRIFICE, EVEN BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD. ~THE BLOOD OF THAT SACRIFICE IS THAT OF GOD’S OWN PERFECT AND SINLESS SON--JESUS CHRIST. 

~IN HEBREWS 9.22, HE USES A WORD THAT HE USES ONLY ONCE IN SCRIPTURE… IT MEANS "A GUSHING FORTH… AN EFFUSION" TRANSLATED AS "SHEDDING OF BLOOD". VS 22, “And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission.”

~THE BLOOD IS OUR POWER! ~THE BLOOD IS THE LIFEFLOW OF CHRISTIANITY. ~IF WE WOULD THINK LESS OF ITS IMPORTANCE OUR FAITH IS WEAKENED. ~TO THINK THAT IT LACKS POWER IS TO DENY THE FAITH. 

 

~IT IS OUR POWER TO OVERCOME SATANRevelation 12:11, “And They Overcame Him By The Blood Of The Lamb And By The Word Of Their Testimony, And They Did Not Love Their Lives To The Death.” 

~THE BLOOD IS OUR PURGINGHebrews 9.14, “How Much More Shall The Blood Of Christ, Who Through The Eternal Spirit Offered Himself Without Spot To God, Cleanse Your Conscience From Dead Works To Serve The Living God?”

 ~BY HIS BLOOD ARE WE MADE PURE BEFORE OUR FATHER. 

~THE BLOOD IS OUR PEACEMAKERColossians 1:20, “And By Him To Reconcile All Things To Himself, By Him, Whether Things On Earth Or Things In Heaven, Having Made Peace Through The Blood Of His Cross.”

~THE BLOOD IS OUR PROPITIATIONRomans 3:25, “God Sent Him To Die In Our Place To Take Away Our Sins. We Receive Forgiveness Through Faith In The Blood Of Jesus' Death. This Showed That God Always Does What Is Right And Fair, As In The Past When He Was Patient And Did Not Punish People For Their Sins.” ~THIS VERSE TELLS US THAT HE IS OUR “COMPLETE” ~SACRIFICE—THE PROPITIATION. 

~THE BLOOD IS OUR PURCHASING AGENTActs 20:28, “Keep Watch Over Yourselves And All The Flock Of Which The Holy Spirit Has Made You Overseers. Be Shepherds Of The Church Of God, Which He Bought With His Own Blood.” 

~THE DEBT THAT WAS OWED COULD ONLY BE PAID WITH A SINLESS ATONEMENT… ~AND ONLY GOD’S SON COULD MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF A SINLESS SACRIFICE. ~THE BLOOD IS OUR PASSOVER. ~THE BLOOD IS OUR SACRIFICE AND OUR SIN-OFFERING. ~IT IS OUR SALVATION AND OUR SEAL OF THE NEW COVENANT. 

~IT IS OUR ETERNAL REDEMPTIONEphesians 1:7, “In Him We Have Redemption Through His Blood, The Forgiveness Of Sins, In Accordance With The Riches Of God's Grace.” 

 

~THE BLOOD! "IMPORTANT" IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT. ~THE BLOOD IS IMMUTABLE, UNCHANGEABLE. ~IT IS ETERNAL. ~IT IS EFFICIENT, AND IT IS EFFECTIVE. ~WE CAN ACCEPT IT OR REJECT IT, BUT WE CAN NEVER DENY THIS ONE THING… 

~THE SHEDDING OF SINLESS BLOOD IS THE GREATEST OUTPOURING OF GOD’S LOVE EVER REVEALED TO MAN.
