Life In The Blood

Leviticus 17:11

For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

1.We can conclude that the life of every living creature is in the blood.

2.The blood is not life, the blood carries life.

3.No scientist can explain it,the blood carries the life of God. The mysterious substance that gives life to us thru our own blood is His spirit.

4. As soon as the blood is gone in an individual, the life is gone.

5.What has God always used to atone for mans sin?

Hebrews 9:22

For without the shedding of blood there is no remission for sins.

1.What has God declared as the only thing that will make man holy?

2.Apart from the blood, is there any other way to become clean?

John 1:14

And the word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

1.Who is the word? How did it dwell among us and become flesh?

2.Jesus is the word, and He became man and dwelt among us on earth.

3.Jesus was the only begotten of the Father, and His body was formed and fashioned in the womb of Mary, but the life that was in Jesus Christ came alone from the Father by the Holy Spirit.Therefore,this life which flowed in the veins of the Lord Jesus came from God. No wonder He said I am the LIFE,God imparted His own life into the blood stream of Jesus. Adamic blood is corrupt and was carried by Mary, who declared that her son was GOD my SAVIOR. Mary was the chosen carrier of the e body of her Son,but all the blood came from God.The blood that flowed in His veins was perfect. A new blood line had to be established for us to enter into and receive eternal life, as well as all the healing and redemption that ONLY His blood can bring.

1 Peter 1:19

But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.

1.The blood of Jesus is described as precious,what does that word mean to you?

2.When something is precious to you, does it not have unlimited value, as though you could never put a price on it? Think of your loved ones.

3.We value the blood of Jesus in our lives because nothing else has paid for our eternal redemption, it is the most precious thing in all the world to us.

1 John 5:7,8

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word,and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one.And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water,and the blood; and these three agree in one.

1.What three are one , as declared and written in heaven ?

2.What three have we on earth that are declared as one?

3.Who is the word?Jesus is the word in heaven.

4.Who is the water?

5.The spirit is the Holy Spirit on earth with us, the water is the word [the bible], and the blood is the blood of Jesus,spilled on the earth, for our salvation.All three available on the earth for us today.

Ephesians 5:26

That He might sanctify and cleanse it[the church],by the washing of water by the word.

1.The word is ineffectual without the blood.We must know the author before the word can be powerful in our lives.

2.By staying in the word, we stay clean spiritually, should we wash ourselves daily as we wash our bodies?

Matthew 28:18

All power is given unto me in heaven and earth.

1.We now have the power and authority of the blood because all power is given unto Him.When we put the blood of Jesus on something by faith, Satan will flee because the Blood of Jesus is alive. We need the name and the blood for life is in the blood.There is power in the name of Jesus only because He shed His own blood and offered it to His Father,who then gave His authority and power to His son.That same power is given to all believers, but it only becomes operative as we honor the blood.

Hebrews 12:24

And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

1.How is the new covenant better than the old covenant?

2.Now we can all enter the holy of holies by the blood of Jesus, not just the Levitical priests once a year. Hebrews 9:25

1Corinthians 5:7

Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ, our Passover, is sacrificed for us.

1.What might be the old leaven spoken of here?

2. The old leaven, is the old covenant,or trying to please God by our works, instead of Christ alone as our righteousness.

3.How may we now be a new lump, or unleavened.

4. The leaven of the Pharisees is to keep the law as righteousness, but NOW Christ is our righteousness alone.

5. How is Christ our Passover?

Acts 4:12

Neither is there salvation in any other for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

1.Now Christ is our Passover,{God will pass over us when HE SEES THE BLOOD}, and there is no other name given unto us whereby we shall be saved.

Romans 3:24

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 has 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.

1.What must we do to be justified freely by God ?

2.What must we have faith in ?

Revelation 12:11

And they overcame Him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony ; and they loved not their lives unto death.

1.How do we overcome the accuser?

2.What does it mean not to love our own lives?

3.Will this make our stand against the enemy even more effective?

4.If we use the blood of the Lamb, and our testimony, and we consider not our own comfort or pain, we are sure to win the battles we face against hell itself. Our obedience according to the plan and provision of God is fail safe.

Exodus 12:23

For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when He seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.

1. Let us recall that the Lord has always used blood to spare us from the enemy, in this case, the spirit of death could not touch them, if they had obeyed and wiped their door with the blood of the Lamb. Let us notice that Gods command here was not complex or difficult, He simply required an act of obedience and faith. In the same way , today, Christ is our Passover, and God will not smite us with any curse and we become clean in His sight. The blood on the door of the Israelites was a foreshadowing of what was to come,Christ our better covenant. All He requires is a simple act of faith in Jesus Christ,not complex or difficult. Have you been washed in the blood today ?
