Blood of Christ

Blood is for Life (in general): Lev 17:14 (For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.)

 

Substitution: Gen 3:21 (first sinner made righteous by substitutionary death)

 

Substitution at Passover: Ex 12:1-20 (1 Cor 5:7 – Christ our Passover Lamb)

 

Atonement in Old Testament: Lev 16 (Yom Kippur)

 

Why Atonement: Heb 9:22 (without shedding blood (life), there is no remission of sins)

 

Perfect and Permanent Atonement: Heb 9:1-28

 

That Enabled Christ to be Mediator: 1 Tim 2:5; He 8:16; Heb 9:15;

 

Blood of Christ:

  • Reconciled us to GOD (Eph 2:13 – But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ)
  • Justified us by Faith ( Rom 3:23-25 – For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God)
  • Redeemed us (Per 1:18,19 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot)
  • Brought us into New Testament (Matt 26:28 – For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins)
  • Enabled for Communion with Christ (John 6:53-56 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him) (1 Cor 11:23-32 also)
  • Cleanses us (NOW by Faith) (1John 1:7 – But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin)
  • Gives Victory (NOW by Faith) (Rev 12:11 – And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death)
  • How it cleanses us and gives us victory? (1 Pet 1:2 – Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied)

 

We bring ourselves unto Obedience of Holy Spirit (who convicts us of our sin, John 16:8), and ask GOD the father to forgive us because of Blood of Christ (by Grace through Faith).

Voice of Abel’s Blood: Punish the sinners (revenge – law) (Gen 4)

Voice of Christ’s Blood: Forgive the sinners (mercy and forgiveness – Grace) (1 John 1)

 

Whenever, we think, we should come under sprinkling of Blood of Christ, that is only by FAITH unto OBEDIENCE.
