The Blood

    Home Back

 

Leviticus 17:11-12: 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 the soul. Therefore I said to the children of Israel, No one among you shall eat blood, nor shall any stranger who dwells among you eat blood. * The law of sacrifice of animals without blemish in that age was commanded by our God. The law was improved at Passover in 31 AD. The sacrifice of the Eternal Messiah, Christ Jesus established approval of the New Covenant at HIS death.

 

Matthew 26:17: Now on the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying to HIM: Where do you want us to prepare for YOU to eat the Passover? * The annual eight days of Passover is unleavened. Passover is unleavened since Christ, the Lamb was unleavened, and meaning without sin forever (read Leviticus 23: 5-8). As we imitate Christ as disciples, we must imitate our Lord by keeping all the contracts/commandments listed in Leviticus, chapter 23, Exodus, chapter 20, and repeated in Deuteronomy, chapter 5. The symbolic contract of the blood of life is firmly established by the Word at Passover once per year.

 

Matthew 26:27-29: Then HE took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying: Drink from it, all of you. For this is MY blood of the new covenant (meaning contract), which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s Kingdom. * The addendum to the yearly contract of the law (torah) was improved when the Lamb of God, HIS only Son made addendum to the torah. Christ, the Eternal sacrifice improved upon the sacrifice of animals in the daily sacrifice. The daily sacrifice of that age always pointed to the first coming of Messiah (Exodus 24:7-11).

 

Hebrews 9:18-22: Therefore not even the first covenant was dedicated without blood. For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water, scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled the book itself and all the people, saying: This is the blood of the covenant which God has commanded you. Then likewise he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry. And according to the law almost all things are purified (cleansed) with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission (forgiveness). * For remission, John the Baptist turned the attention of the hearers to the Lamb of God.

 

John 1:29: The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said: Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! Verse 33-34: I did not know HIM, but HE who sent me to baptize with water said to me: Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on HIM, this is HE who baptizes with the Holy Spirit. And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God.  * The full Spirit of God remained on humble Christ after baptism. Later, the Messiah demonstrated the power of the family of God of One. * John 11:23-26: Jesus said to her (Martha): Your brother (Lazarus) will rise again. Martha said to HIM: I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day. Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in ME, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in ME shall never die (after resurrection). Do you believe this? * Presently, after being in the tomb for four days, Lazarus came forth alive. Later, at the trial of Jesus, Caiaphas, being high priest that year prophesied.

 

John 11:51-52:…But being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation, and not for that nation only,  but also that HE would gather together in one the children of God who were scattered abroad. * The children of God scattered abroad to all nations included the ten lost tribes mingled with the rest of the pagan world. Also included are those pagans scattered abroad who have been adopted into the children of God (Ephesians 1:5). Sadly, within thirty years after the resurrection of Christ, the one and only gospel of Christ became a turncoat. The angel thrown out of heaven began the perverted wicked false gospel of Satan the devil.

 

Galatians 1: 6-7: I marvel that you are turning away so soon from HIM who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. * The small churches of that age have degenerated into mega entertainment centers in this age. I recently observed numerous cases of wine in the kitchen of a mega church. I asked the chef that was preparing rich delicacies, about the wine. The chef advised the wine was for the heavy donors so they will give more donations. Only our God freely gave the riches of Jesus to obtain more sons. The first Son of God born of woman preached that mankind must be born again. For salvation the second birth is not an emotional feeling with flesh and blood, as most professing religions preach. We must first follow Christ in keeping all the commandments of God. Christ set an example for many brethren to imitate Christ in keeping all commandments. We also die, but then live forever if God wills.

 

John 3:6: That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. * When we are born of the Spirit there is no blood and no one can see you. Therefore, we will be like the wind.  Verse 8: The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.  * This new spiritual birth will take place at resurrection with the trumpet of God. *…And thus we shall always be with the Lord (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, 1 Cor. 15:52, 53). * Be blessed until we meet again.   Visit:   cogmessiah.org   *   Visit   christisking.us
