GOD ESTABLISHED:

 THE BLOOD COVENANT

Exodus 12:3

3 "Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying: 'On the tenth day of this month every man shall take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household.

Leviticus 17:11

11 '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 ( remission ) for the soul.'

Exodus 12:13

13 'Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.

Hebrews 9:14

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?

Under the new covenant Jesus blood has done it all for us.

Hebrews 9:15

15 And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.

CHARLES SIMPSON OBSERVERS: JESUS CHRIST CAME INTO HISTORY AS AN ETERNAL PRIEST TO SUFFER ETERNAL SACRIFICE FOR SIN. THE SHEDDING OF HIS BLOOD PROVIDED A PERMANENT SACRIFICE AND A PERMANENT COVENANT BOND BETWEEN GOD AND MAN. HIS BLOOD WAS APPLIED NOT MERELY TO AN EARTHLY ALTAR BUT TO THE VERY ALTAR OF GOD IN HEAVEN WHERE ONCE AND FOR ALL IT OBTAINED REDEMPTION FROM SIN FOR THOSE WHO RECEIVE HIM.

CHRIST'S BLOOD IS THE ULTIMATE FULFILLMENT OF GOD'S COVENANT MAKING NATURE.

If you do away with the blood songs in the church you might just as well write Icokbod over the door.   Betty Jean Robinson

 

I want to be so full of God that when a mosquito bites me, it flies away singing "There's Power in the Blood."
