Redeemed Thru The Blood…

Our finite minds will never be able to grasp or understand the depth of the co-working of God the Father and God the Son in our redemption.

But through the sacrifice made by the Beloved, God has “translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son” (Col. 1:13).

The love demonstrated by God in giving His Son, and the love demonstrated by the Son in freely giving Himself (the just for the unjust), will be the marvel of all eternity.

Redemption is through His blood.

Jesus said, “The Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life a ransom for many”

Matthew 20:28

In the book of Leviticus we read, “The life is in the blood” (Lev. 17:11). Therefore, Jesus came to give His blood a ransom for many.

The blood of Jesus was pure, holy, sinless, guileless, stainless–the blood that ran through the veins of Jesus was the blood of Jehovah God (Acts 20:28).

The blood is the price Jesus paid for our redemption.  The result of the giving of the blood is “the forgiveness of sins.”

In the Old Testament God thundered out (and He has not changed His mind), “The soul that sinneth, it shall die!”

Again, through the prophet, God said, “All we like sheep have gone astray.”

Thru the New Testament writer, the Holy Ghost declares, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Through the beloved John, the Holy Spirit has given to us the definition of sin: “Whosoever committeth sin TRANSGRESSETH ALSO THE LAW: FOR SIN IS THE TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW” (1 John 3:4).

Therefore, according to the standard of Jehovah God we are all supposed to be in hell; but God in His grace provided a way of escape.

However, “without the shedding of blood there is no remission” (Heb. 9:22).

“The blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, cleanseth us. . .” (I John 1:7).

In the book of Leviticus, ten times the Holy Spirit connects the atonement of the blood with the forgiveness of the sinner’s sins.

Jehovah God knows no other way except the blood way. It has been God’s way since the Garden of Eden.

Adam was covered with the skins produced by a blood sacrifice. Innocent animals gave their blood to provide coats of skins for Adam and Eve.

Later, the son of Adam thought he would get away with a bloodless offering–but he did not.

Abel “by faith” brought a blood offering and God accepted it.

Cain, in his own wisdom, brought fruit… bloodless.  God rejected Cain’s offering.

Since that hour God has demanded blood–and with out blood there is no remission!

By every animal, innocent and without blemish, slain in sacrifice according to the direction of Jehovah God, God was saying through the death of that animal, “MY Lamb, My Son, is going to die!”

Then one day, John the Baptist pointed to a Man and cried out, “Behold the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29).

A little later, on a cross planted on Mount Calvary, the Lamb of God poured out His blood.

The eternal purpose of Jehovah God was achieved.

Jesus said before He died, “IT IS FINISHED!” (John 19:30).

What a marvelous statement indeed! In our language only three words, but in those three words He was saying, “I have accomplished what I came to accomplish! My Father’s plan for the remission of sins is complete. My blood has been shed. I have laid my life down. It is accomplished!”

I sincerely hope this finds you well, dear reader, and God Bless you.
