Covered by the Blood of Jesus
- The majority of us have either contemplated or made the decision to give blood at some point in our lives or another.
- We were aware that blood banks need a sufficient supply in order to be able to offer this life-giving fluid in times of crisis.
- Our bodies may require blood at some point, and it is comforting to know that there are supplies accessible in case this happens to us.
Blood cannot be produced in a medical setting.While considering Jesus, we may not immediately picture Him as someone who would physically donate blood in order for us to have a bodily transfusion.His blood spilt for us during His agony and ultimate sacrifice on Calvary, however, does far more than simply keeping us from death.Is the phrase ″covered by the Blood of Jesus″ something you’ve heard before?
When Israel was covered by the Blood
- When I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague will not come upon you to destroy you when I smite the land of Egypt, according to the Word of God in Exodus 12:13.
- The blood will serve as a symbol (sign) on the dwellings where you are staying.
- In addition, according to Exodus 12:7, the blood of an immaculate lamb is applied to the two side posts and the top door posts of each dwelling, respectively.
It’s possible that you’ve noticed that the positions of these three points correspond to the positions of Jesus’ head and hands on the crucifixion.As is always the case with God, nothing happens by chance.Read the entire book of Exodus 12 to find out what happened.

- Whenever Sound of Heaven becomes LIVE, you’ll receive an email notification.
- As we bring the Church to you, we invite you to join us.
- Every Wednesday and Sunday, listen in on Long Island, New York’s number one Christian radio show, which broadcasts the Bible to over 100,000 non-Christians every week.
They are available to take live calls and break down the Bible so that anybody may comprehend it!
What did the blood on the doorpost do?
- It enabled the Hebrews to be released and set free (from Egyptian slavery), it protected them from death (God’s punishment), it marked them for life (Passover is observed annually as a reminder), and it recognized them as God’s offspring (God’s Chosen people).
- As a result, in the Old Testament, the immaculate lamb served as the blood donor for the Hebrews, and they were covered by the blood of the lamb — protected and delivered.
- As a result, we have a significantly larger blood donor!
We have Jesus to rely on!He is God’s acceptable, flawless, and immaculate offering — the sacrificial Lamb on which we depend for salvation!
What does being covered by the Blood of Jesus do for you?
Here are some things to think about when it comes to being covered by the Blood of Jesus.
- The blood atones for the sins of the world. ″For the life of the body is in the blood. for it is the blood that makes an atonement for the soul,″ says Leviticus 17:11, while Isa. 53:10 talks of Jesus’ life being offered as a sacrifice for sin. In Heb. 10:4, the Bible makes it plain that the blood of animals cannot atone for our sin
- instead, Jesus’ blood brings about a new covenant with the Father. As recorded in I Corinthians 11:24-25, Jesus proclaims to His followers at the Passover dinner the night before his betrayal that the cup represents a new covenant in His blood, and that the blood of Jesus saves those who trust in Him. ″. while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us,″ according to Romans 5:8. It was as if we had never sinned because of his blood sacrifice. The fact that we are justified by His blood is confirmed in verse 9. Instead of seeing our sins, when God looks at us, he sees the blood of Jesus covering us.
- As Christians, the blood of Jesus purchases our redemption. It is confirmed in Ephesians 1:7 that we have redemption by His blood in Him.
- Christians are brought closer to God as a result of the blood. According to Ephesians 2:13, we, as Gentiles, were formerly separated from the Hebraic covenant, but have now been brought closer by the blood of Messiah, Jesus. The dividing wall between Jews and Gentiles has been demolished, according to verse 14.
- The blood of Jesus brings believers back into right relationship with God. According to Col. 1:20, all things have been reconciled to God as a result of the blood of Jesus shed on the cross. Because of His sacrificial love on the cross – the spilt blood of Jesus – we have been reconciled, and this is not due to anything we have done on our own.
- The blood elevates believers to the status of kings and priests. It is said in Rev. 1:6 that He who loved us and wiped away our sins with His blood has made us kings and priests before God, the Father.
- His blood cleanses the believer’s mind of all traces of evil. The Bible teaches in Heb. 9:14 that ″the blood of Christ, who by the everlasting Spirit sacrificed Himself without blemish to God, purifies our hearts.″ Why? So that we can better serve God.
- It is because of the blood that we, as Christians, have the audacity (confidence) to enter the Holy of Holies. The book of Hebrews (10:19) affirms that the spilling of Jesus’ blood has made this possibility possible. With the blood of Jesus, we may approach the most personal area with God and never feel inadequate or humiliated since we have been cleansed from ALL sin. 1 As it says in John 1:7, ″If we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, the Messiah, purifies us from all sin,″ we have fellowship with one another because we are walking in light.
Covered by the Blood = Love Beyond Comprehension
- A person’s sins are atoned for by the blood.
- Isaiah 53:10 talks of Jesus’ life being offered as a sacrifice for sin, while Lev.
- 17:11 states, ″For the life of the body is in the blood…
for it is the blood that atones for the soul.″ Clearly, the blood of animals cannot atone for our sin; only Jesus’ blood can bring about a new covenant with God, according to Heb.10:4.As recorded in I Corinthians 11:24-25, Jesus proclaims to His followers at the Passover dinner the night before his betrayal that the cup symbolizes a new covenant in Jesus’ blood; the blood of Jesus purifies those who trust in Him.When we were yet sinners, Christ died for us, as it is stated in the book of Romans.
- It was as if we had never sinned because of his blood sacrifice on the cross.
- He has vindicated us via His blood, as verse 9 reaffirms.
- Instead of seeing our sins, when God looks at us, he sees the blood of Jesus that has covered us.
- As Christians, we are saved via the blood of Jesus.
It is confirmed in Ephesians 1:7 that we have redemption by His blood through Him.Those who trust in Jesus’ blood are brought closer to God.Our Gentile heritage, according to Eph.2:13, separated us from the Hebraic covenant, but now we have been reconciled by the blood of Messiah, Jesus Christ.
The dividing wall between Jews and Gentiles has been torn down, according to verse 14.Jesus’ blood brings Christians back into right relationship with their Creator.Col.1:20 states that by the blood of Jesus shed on the cross, all things have been made right with God.
Reconciliation is not ours as a result of anything we have done; rather, it is made possible by His sacrificial act of love on the cross — the shedding of His Blood.Those who trust in Christ become kings and priests because of the blood shed on their behalf.It is said in Rev.1:6 that He Who loved us and wiped away our sins with His blood has made us kings and priests before God, the Father.Death-defying works are removed from the believer’s thoughts by his blood.
…the blood of Christ, who by the eternal Spirit gave Himself without blemish to God, purifies our brains, says Hebrews 9:14.Why?as a result of which we can serve God
Our bravery (assurance) to enter the Holy of Holies is a result of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross.The book of Hebrews (10:19) affirms that the spilling of Jesus’ blood has made this possibility possible.
God’s most personal relationship with us is one in which we never feel inadequate or humiliated because the blood of Jesus cleanses us of ALL sin.1 We share fellowship with one another because we walk in the light, as He is in the light, according to John 1:7; and the blood of Jesus, the Messiah, purifies us from all sin; and

SEVEN THINGS THE BLOOD OF JESUS DOES FOR US
- THESE ARE THE SEVEN THINGS THAT THE BLOOD OF JESUS DOES FOR US: At the conclusion of this section, each member should: Have a clear knowledge of the seven most important things that Jesus’ blood achieves for us.
- Learn more about what the blood of Jesus accomplished for us by becoming acquainted with other passages.
- Our sins are forgiven as a result of the blood of Jesus on the cross.
Bringing clarity to the question of remission and forgiveness at this moment is critical at this point.Luke 24:46–47: The Bible says that Jesus was born into a family of wolves.It is written, that it was fitting for Christ to suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, starting with Jerusalem.Take special note of those two words: repentance and forgiveness of sins.
- The Bible says in Acts 5:31 that God has elevated him with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, in order to bring repentance to Israel and remission of sins.
- In this passage, the Scripture calls for ″repentance toward Israel and remission of sins.″ However, in Luke 24, Jesus stated that’repentance and forgiveness of sins’ should be proclaimed in his Name throughout all nations, beginning with the city of Jerusalem.
- As a result, He employed the phrase ″remission of sins.″ After that, we get to Acts 5, where we see that some translators have used the term forgiveness of sins rather than remission, and this is where we need to make the change.
- Both the phrases remission and forgiveness come from the same Greek word, aphesis, which means ″forgiveness″ or ″remission.″ However, this is not sufficient to bring us to a conclusion; we must now consider the context in which the words are used at the time they are employed.
When two or more terms, derived from the same word in any language, are used in various ways, the only way to determine what is meant at any one time is to look at the context in which they are used.What Peter said is in accordance with what Jesus said in the Gospels.Given that they were both exactly the same thing, why would you alter one from remission to forgiveness when they are both precisely the same thing and are used in the same context?When you sin against God as a Christian, you do not simply receive forgiveness (which is coined as if you are receiving a pardon), but rather, the wrongdoing is removed from existence in the same way that your sins were removed from existence at the beginning when you came to Christ; there is no record of them being present anymore.
It makes no difference whether you sin before or after you are born again, because there is no record of it anywhere, not even in God’s book.In other words, the blood of Jesus Christ works for you even before redemption, and it works even after salvation to grant complete remission of sins.He declared that a new testament, will, covenant, and order would be given to them, and that their crimes and transgressions would no longer be remembered.This is due to the fact that it has been fully erased (Hebrews 10:16-18).
‘If we confess our sins to one another, he is true and just to forgive us our sins, and to purify us from all unrighteousness,’ says the apostle John in 1 John 1:9 (NIV).Forgiveness in this context refers to the act of removing and cleansing us from all righteousness.The misdeeds are entirely forgiven, and no records are retained of them.It is not a pardon; rather, it is a blotting out of the past, as if it never happened.And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not only for ours, but also for the sins of the entire world, according to the words of 1 John 2:1.
That’s the end of it!It works for us in the same way that it works for the rest of the world.He is the object of our adoration.And every time you read it, you’ll notice that the same term is being used.
Sin is not required for the Christian; you are not required to sin, but if you do, you will get remission, which is a full and total erasure from God’s record.It is impossible for God to keep a record of your mistakes or blunders since the blood of Jesus has fully erased them from existence.Hallelujah!″For by one sacrifice he hath perfected for ever those who are sanctified,″ the Bible states in Hebrews 10:14.
- Because of his one offering, he has perfected us for all time and there is no longer any need for sacrifice.
- All honor and glory to God!
- Justification: Justification is made possible through the blood of Jesus on the cross.
- We are justified and pronounced not guilty by God as a result of His blood, and we have no record of our previous actions.
- It reads in Acts 13:38-39 that ″Be it known vnto you, therefore, men and brethren, that the forgiveness of sins is preached unto you through this man; and by him, all who believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.″ This Scripture should have included remission as well, but it says forgiveness instead.
- Redemption: The blood of Jesus purchased our redemption, which is referred to as agorazo, which means ″buy.″ Because of the blood of Jesus, we have been purchased and offered as gifts to God.
It is said in the book of Revelation 5:9 that ″and they chanted a new song, saying, Thou are deserving to take the book, and to break the seals thereof: for thou wasst killed, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every tribe, and language, and people, and country″ (Revelation 5:9).The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 6:20, ″For ye have been purchased with a price: therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.″ ″Take watch therefore unto yourself, and unto all the flock, over which the Holy Ghost hath appointed you overseers, to feed the Church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood,″ says Acts 20:28.The blood of Jesus provides us with access to the presence of God.Thank you, God, for granting us access!We have access to the Father because of Christ’s sacrifice.He is the path to follow.
- By the blood of Jesus, we are granted access to the Most Holy Place.
- In other words, every time you break that bread, recall the fresh and live method that Christ has made available to us, which He hallowed through the curtain of His flesh.
- ″For it is through him that we both have access by one Spirit to the Father,″ says Ephesians 2:18.
- According to John 14:6, ″Jesus says to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes unto the Father except through me.’″ Other biblical references include Acts 4:12 and Hebrews 10:19.
- Friendship: We enjoy fellowship with God as a result of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
We’ve entered into a partnership with Him, a communion with Him, and a sharing of our lives with Him.Because of the blood of Christ, we have been elevated to His level.However, according to Ephesians 2:13-14, ″you who were were afar off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.″ For he is our peace, who has joined us together and torn down the middle wall of division that separated us;″ Additional Scripture References: Paul writes in Colossians 1:20 that We are cleansed from all wickedness by the blood of Jesus, who died on the cross for us.Similarly, Hebrews 9:14 states: ″How much more will the blood of Christ, who gave himself up without stain to God through the everlasting Spirit, purify your conscience from dead deeds in order that you may serve the living God?″ ″If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to wash us from all unrighteousness,″ says 1 John 1:9, ″If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.″ The will: The will is given to us by the blood, which is the testament.
- According to Hebrews 9:15-16 (NIV), Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who have been called may receive the promised eternal inheritance – now that he has died as a payment for their sins committed against God in violation of the first covenant.
- The death of the person who made the will must be proven in order for it to be valid,″ says the attorney.
- ″That their eyes may be opened, and their hearts turned from darkness to light, and their minds from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among those who have been cleansed by faith in me,″ says Acts 26:18.
- ADDITIONAL SCRIPTURE REFERENCES: The verse is Romans 8:16.
- IN CONCLUSION, I would want to say God declared that the blood contains the life of the flesh and offered the blood on the altar as atonement for the sins of the world.
- The blood of animals sacrificed year after year, though it was effective in masking guilt for a time, was unable to totally remove sin.
- However, Jesus, who was without sin, took on the nature of sin in order to win eternal redemption for us via His precious blood.
- Because of the precious blood of Jesus Christ, there is no longer any memory of sin; we are new creations with no past, purchased as gifts for God and purchased as gifts for God.
- The following are some of the lessons learned from this study: The blood is the life of the flesh, and God provided the blood in order to atone for the sins of the people on the cross.
Atonement can be defined as appeasement, propitiation, restitution for transgression, or the satisfaction of the claims of justice, among other things.When Adam and Eve sinned, God slaughtered an animal, poured the blood to hide their guilt, and used the flesh of that animal to cover their nakedness.This was the first sacrifice for sin.There is no other way to atone for one’s sins but via the shed blood of Christ.
- The burnt offering represented a devotion and acceptance of the sacrifice.
- Atonement was made for the people as a whole on the Great Day of Atonement, when the high priest presented sacrifices on their behalf.
- Jesus served as the Passover lamb for us.
- Jesus was offered up as a sacrifice for sin, and with His blood, He was received into the Most Holy Place in heaven, so obtaining eternal redemption for us on the cross.
- The resurrection of Christ, rather than the cross, marked the beginning of the actuality of the new creation in Christ.
- After paying the price for our sins, Jesus purchased us as gifts for God to use in his service.
- The blood of Jesus provides us with forgiveness, justification, redemption, access, fellowship, purification, and the will, or new testament, all of which are made possible by the blood of Jesus.

What does the blood of Jesus do for us?
- There are so many things!
- There is no way that you or I could be saved aside from the spilling of Jesus’ blood, which is why the blood of Jesus is so important to our salvation in the first place.
- Heretical is any religion or teaching that downplays the significance of Jesus Christ’s blood, which was truly shed on the cross of Calvary, and substitutes it with his mere death or with wine as an alternative.
The shedding of Jesus’ blood: Sins that have been forgiven – (Mat 26:28) For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for the forgiveness of sins on behalf of many people.Sins are removed when they are forgiven.It was as if John the Baptist stated it himself: ″Behold, God’s Lamb, which takes away the sin of the world.″ When he gave his blood for them, he was able to take them away.The church was purchased – (Acts 20:28) Keep watch over yourself and over all the flock, over which the Holy Ghost has appointed you as overseers, in order to feed the church of God, which he has purchased with his own blood, as a result of this.
- Did you note that the blood Jesus sacrificed in order to purchase the church was God’s blood as well as his own?
- He was, after all, God manifested in the flesh!
- We are to perform those things that will bring him glory since he purchased us (1 Cor 6:19-20).
- Propitiates are those who help others (Rom 3:25) He is the one whom God has appointed to be a propitiation by faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the forgiveness of sins that have been committed in the past, and to do so through the forbearance of the Father.
Propitiation is another word for appeasement.Before we were saved, each and every one of us was under the wrath of God (Jn 3:36).By placing our trust in the spilt blood of Jesus, God’s anger against us was appeased, and we were delivered from his wrath (Rom 5:9).Justifies the use of – (Rom 5:9) Much more, because we have now been justified by his blood, we will be rescued from wrath by means of him.
We have already been tested for our sins and found not guilty because Jesus carried them in his own body on the cross and paid the penalty for them in full.To be justified by Jesus’ blood implies that we have already been tried and found not guilty (2 Pet 2:24).Obtains a refund – (Eph 1:7) Who, according to the riches of his generosity, has provided us with redemption by his blood and the forgiveness of our sins.We were devil’s children because we were sinners (1 Jn 3:10).
By spilling his blood, Jesus purchased us freedom from the devil and transformed us into God’s children (Jn 1:12).Makes it to the end – (Eph 2:13) By the blood of Christ, those who have been separated from Christ have been brought closer to one another.We were severed from the covenant of promise that God had created with Israel before we were redeemed, and we had no hope in the world and no relationship with God.During our salvation experience, the blood of Christ enrolled us into the covenant of promise and pulled us closer to the God who had previously been absent from our lives, providing us with hope for the first time in our lives (Rom 8:24).It brings about calm – (Col 1:20) Having established peace via the blood of his cross, he has promised to reconcile all things to himself; I say, whether they be things on the earth or things in heaven.
As evil sinners, we were unable to find serenity (Is 48:22).Having been reconciled to God via Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection, we were at peace with God when he poured his blood and we were rescued (Rom 5:1; 2 Cor 5:18).Efforts to purge – (Heb 9:14) In what way is it possible that the blood of Christ, who by the eternal Spirit presented himself without stain to God, will not also purify your conscience from dead deeds in order for you to serve the live God?Our consciences were bad (Heb 10:22), having been polluted (Tit 1:15) and scorched by sin before we were redeemed (1 Tim 4:2).
However, when each of us had embraced Jesus, we could plead the blood, and God would apply it to our conscience, purging it of those previous sins and cleaning it up, so giving us a clear conscience and giving us peace of mind (1 Pet 3:16).You can now plead the blood and beg God to cleanse your conscience so that you can continue to serve him whenever you are burdened by those previous evil deeds, rather than reliving the past.Sanctifies a place – (Heb 13:12) As a result, Jesus likewise suffered outside of the gate in order to sanctify the people with his own blood.In order for someone to be utilized by God, he or she must be cleansed and separated from the rest of society.
- That occurs as a result of the blood of Jesus being shed for you.
- What other way could God have used a previous killer of Christians to write most of the New Testament and create churches all throughout Asia Minor, bringing men and women to faith in Jesus via his preaching?
- (1 John 1:7) However, if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1:8).
- Every time you sin, both your body and your spirit become dirty as a result.
- In order to wash your flesh and soul of this filthiness, you must first find a means to cleanse yourself of it (2 Cor 7:1).
- God has provided us with the blood of Jesus Christ in order to deal with this particular issue.
Washes are a type of cleaning that is done on a regular basis (Rev 1:5) From Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the prince of the kingdoms of the earth, we pray: To him who loved us and washed us clean from our sins with his own blood, we give thanks.The Bible says that ″even if your sins are as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow″ (Is 1:18).The blood of Jesus is the substance that gives them their whiteness and cleans them.As a result of these verses, it is clear that the blood of Jesus Christ is very necessary.We would not be saved and we would not be able to enjoy the advantages of salvation on this side of eternity if it were not for it.I hope this has been of assistance.

The Precious Power of the Blood: Five Benefits Christ Purchased for You
- There’s pow’r, pow’r, and wonder-working pow’r everywhere.
- Invested with sacred blood from the Lamb When I hear these words, a flood of happy memories floods my head.
- When I was younger, we used to sing them in church all the time, bouncing up and down on our toes.
Toe-bobbers were the most popular church tunes in the South.My father, on the other hand, appeared to enjoy ″Power in the Blood″ the most.I could tell he was going to sing a little louder than usual on this one, and I was going to do the same.I believe the entire congregation sang with greater fervor than normal, but I couldn’t hear them very well since the two of us were lifting our voices at the same time.
- Christians of different denominations and political persuasions accept that the blood of Jesus has real power.
- Word- and Spirit-shaped souls instinctively know this, but have you ever stopped to consider how they know it?
- Is it true that the magic blood exists?
- So, if there is power in his blood, how can we account for the reality that exists?
In celebrating this wonder-working pow’r, what truths are hidden beneath the surface of the waterline?
What Does the Blood Do?
- From the Old Testament sacrificial system (and its blood) to the new covenant and Jesus’ once-for-all sacrifice, the New Testament letter to the Hebrews serves as a transitional text (Hebrews 9:7, 12).
- Throughout the Bible, blood denotes life (for example, in Genesis 9:4), while the spilling or shedding of blood represents death (for example, in Genesis 9:5).
- (Leviticus 17:11, 14; Deuteronomy 12:23).
Given that the fair punishment for human sin against God is death (Romans 6:23), the death of sanctioned animal sacrifices, via the offering of their blood, served to temporarily substitute for the demand of death on the part of sinners.Despite this, the high priest was had to return year after year, ″repeatedly″ (Hebrews 9:7; 9:25), since ″it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to wipe away sins,″ as the Bible states (Hebrews 10:4).The repeated animal sacrifices served only to postpone the inevitable, allowing God’s fullness of time to arrive.It is certain that there will be an ultimate retribution for sin.
- Christians, of course, believe and celebrate that the time has arrived for the reckoning to take place in Christ and under the parameters of a new covenant.
- It was Jesus’ willing ″offering himself″ (Hebrews 9:14) by ″once for all″ shedding ″his own blood″ (Hebrews 9:12) that brought the temporary covenant that came before (the old covenant) to its intended conclusion and inaugurating in its place a ″eternal covenant,″ (Hebrews 13:30), which we refer to as the new covenant.
- The book of Hebrews commemorates some of the specific blessings Christians have received as a result of Jesus’ blood (Hebrews 10:19; 13:12), but it is the apostle Paul, in particular, who commemorates the abundance of grace that has been extended to us as a result of Jesus’ blood.
- In a general sense, every divine favor that comes to us may be traced back to Jesus’ blood, but Paul makes the link explicit five times, each time mentioning both blood and a specific feature of what Christ has secured for us through his sacrifice.
Propitiation: To Remove God’s Righteous Wrath
- According to Romans 3:25, Jesus is the one whom ″God presented as a propitiation via his blood, to be received by faith.″ Because God is righteous, the sins of his people constitute a significant impediment to his purposes.
- He has chosen to love us out of compassion and grace, but he cannot put our transgressions, which are acts of cosmic treason against him, under the rug of the cosmos because they are acts of cosmic treason against him.
- Consequently, he devises a solution to fulfill justice while also triumphing in mercy, all out of love.
It is God himself, in the form of his own Son, who takes on human flesh and blood and gives himself in the place of sinful people, accepting the rightful wrath of God and paying our punishment in his death, all for the sake of our salvation.He then expiates his rightful anger, defends divine justice, and opens the floodgates of compassion by his blood, which represents the sacrificial sacrifice of his life in the place of those who deserve death (and who have ″accepted through faith″).
Justification: To Extend God’s Full Acceptance
- ″We have now been justified by his blood,″ according to Romans 5:9.
- Justified is the lingua franca of the courtroom.
- The prosecution and defense both make their case, and the judge or jury makes a decision: either the defendant is found to be innocent or guilty.
The defendant is either found guilty as charged or proclaimed to be in good standing with the law — that is, justified — depending on the circumstances.Those who are joined to Jesus by faith are justified in part as a result of Jesus’ sacrificial and substitutionary death, which is described in the Bible.He gladly bled his own blood, not for his own crimes (which he did not have), but for ours (which he did not have).The shedding of his blood to atone for our sins made it possible for us to share in his righteousness by uniting us to him through trust in what he had accomplished.
- Our sinfulness would stay unchecked if it were not for his blood.
- ″Righteous,″ his Father said, but we were unable to stand with him at the last judgment and receive the same word as him.
Redemption: To Purchase Our True Freedom
- ″In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our sins,″ says Ephesians 1:7.
- ″In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses.″ To redeem implies to purchase someone’s freedom or to ensure the liberation of someone who is enslaved.
- We were (and continue to be) held captive in spiritual captivity as a result of our misdeeds.
Because of our transgressions of God’s law, we deserve the wrath of his omnipotent and righteous anger.He sells our release from justice and from the power of Satan via the spilling of his blood, which cleanses us before God and absolves us from our crimes before him.Because of his sacrifice on the cross, Jesus ″disarmed the rulers and authorities and exposed them to public disgrace″ (Colossians 2:13–14), ″having forgiven us all our transgressions, by erasing the record of debt that stood against us with its legal claims″ (Colossians 2:13–14).(Colossians 2:15).
- It was unforgiven sin that was the most powerful weapon the devils had against us, but when Jesus spilt his own blood in our place to forgive us of our sins, he set us free from their clutches.
- He rescued us from Satan, as well as from the record of debt and legal claims that had been placed against us.
Forgiveness: To Restore Our Best Relationship
- These priceless topics, of course, are intertwined.
- Even though we’ve already seen how important forgiveness is, Ephesians 2:13 brings the significance of forgiveness front and center: ″now in Christ Jesus you who were were afar off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.″ The repair of humanity’s relationship with the divine is at the heart of this ″coming close.″ On a personal level, it is the establishment in Christ of personal access to and a relationship with God that we, as sinners, could never have obtained on our own.
- On a corporate level, it is the restoration in Christ of the connection with God for which we were created in the first place.
God has placed a barrier between us and him as a result of our sin and disobedience against him.He drew near to his covenant people, whom he called Israel, as a result of his old-covenant mercy.However, under the new covenant, he comes closer not to a certain ethnic group, but to everyone who believes in his Son and receives him in faith, no matter who they are or how far they have traveled.To be more specific, the statement ″drawn near by the blood of Christ″ speaks directly to the essence of what each of these heavenly gifts contained inside Jesus’ blood does for us: it takes us closer to God.
- One of the best summaries of everything we’ve seen thus far concerning the power of Jesus’ blood is found in 1 Peter 3:18, which reads as follows: In order for him to bring us to God, ″Christ suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, so he could bring us to God.″
Pacification: To Make Peace with God Himself
At long last, the God-centered purpose of the consequences of Jesus’ blood is verified in their ability to bring about peace between God and his people.Colossians 1:19–20 explains that God reconciles his people to himself via Christ, ″creating peace through the blood of his cross.″ The fact that Jesus died on the cross had been implied in each of the previous instances, but now Paul makes it explicit.It is ″the blood of his cross″ that brings about the reconciliation of God and man.He made peace with a tool of purposeful and horrible torture and execution, and he accepted its consequences.
- It was not by chance that Jesus shed his blood on the cross.
- This was not a haphazard death.
- As tragic as it was, it was done on purpose and with full knowledge of the consequences.
- In spite of the fact that he was executed unjustly, his blood was shed on purpose upon the cross, both by sinful men and by the holy God-man himself.
- They took his life, and he sacrificed his life in return.
- This enabled Jesus to absorb the just anger of God, grant us full legal acceptance, purchase our genuine freedom, repair our most essential connection, and bring us into harmony with God himself in the process.
- Paul describes this as the means by which he was able to secure ″the church of God, which he won with his own blood,″ as he says elsewhere (Acts 20:28).
Following the trial by blood in Paul’s letters, we begin to glimpse an ocean of grace in the last line of the classic chorus: ″We are surrounded by grace.″ When it comes to the precious blood of the Lamb, there is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’r.Indeed, she is priceless.The apostle Peter uses the word valuable in conjunction with Jesus’ blood when he says, ″You were ransomed from the useless ways inherited from your forebears, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.″ (II Peter 1:18–19) 1 Peter 1:18–19 It is appropriate to sing of his blood and, in doing so, to commemorate all of the riches symbolized by his blood.Adding precious in the final line is more than simply adding two more syllables to make the cadence fit with the song; it’s also a way of emphasizing the importance of the word.
- We consider his blood to be extremely valuable.
- It is inestimably priceless.
- Because Christ himself, as well as God himself manifested in him, is extremely valuable to us.
- We believe this is true because the blood of Christ, which is more precious than any other method, provides lasting relief from our deepest hurts and longings in God, not just momentarily, but finally and permanently.
The Power and Importance in the Blood of Jesus
Blood may be seen throughout the Bible, but what does Christ’s blood represent to us is less clear.When we arrive in the country, thou shalt fasten this string of crimson thread to the window through which thou let us in by…As for anybody who comes into your home and is with you, his blood will be on our heads if any hand is placed upon him.Joshua 2:18-19 (NASB) She was a prostitute in the city of Jericho, and the lady addressed in this chapter was named Rahab.
- Because of her city’s location, when the Israelites took possession of the country, she was doomed to be destroyed along with it.
- However, by simply tying a crimson thread to the inside of her window, she was delivered and her life was revolutionized.
- This rope symbolized the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, and it pointed to the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, who was crucified on the cross.
- In reality, the whole Bible is about Jesus Christ and His blood salvation, and you will see this crimson thread running through the entirety of God’s written Word.
The Prophesy of the Blood of Jesus
He or she is disclosed from the very beginning of recorded human history.When Adam and Eve sinned, God shed innocent blood in order to provide them with clothing made of animal skins to cover their nakedness (Genesis 3:21).This is a representation of the covering of righteousness that we get as a result of the death of the Lord Jesus Christ on our behalf.In Genesis 4, we learn that Adam and Eve had two sons, Cain and Abel, who were separated at birth.
- They were driven by an instinctual need to worship God.
- Cain offered up the produce of the earth as a sacrifice.
- The fact that God wanted blood had previously been understood by Abel, who thus brought a lamb.
- God accepted the blood of Abel’s lamb, but He refused to accept the blood of Cain’s lamb.
- Because ″there is no forgiveness of sins without the spilling of blood″ (Hebrews 9:22).
- (Hebrews 9:22).
- And God instructed Abraham to offer up his long-awaited son Isaac as a sacrifice (Genesis 22).
- Just as Abraham was about to thrust the knife into the throbbing heart of his son, an angel intervened and prevented the attack.
- Abraham came upon a ram that had been entangled in a bush.
- Isaac was set free, but in the process, the blood of an innocent animal was shed.
- God desired to free His people from slavery in the country of Egypt at that point in time.
- God gave each household the instruction to slaughter a lamb and place the blood on their door on the night of the Passover.
- According to Exodus 12:13, God replied, ″When I see the blood, I will pass you across.″ And thousands upon thousands of sheep, oxen, turtle doves, and other animals were slaughtered and their blood spilled as sin offerings in the tabernacle and afterwards in the temple, respectively.
- Finally, on the cross, the Lord Jesus Christ died for all of mankind.
- His death was the culmination of all of the prophecies and promises made to him.
According to Revelation 13:8, He was killed before the foundations of the world were established.He came to die; He planned to die; He lived to die; and He was born to die.He came to die because he wanted to die.As we’ve seen, the blood of Jesus is referenced throughout the Bible.What is the significance of the Blood of Jesus for us today?
The Power of the Blood of Jesus
His blood is the only thing that can save us.There was a price against us that we were unable to pay, but the blood of Jesus paid the price for our redemption.1 Peter 1:18-19 reads, ″Forasmuch as you are aware that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, keep this in mind.″ Rather, with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or stain.″ His blood is the means by which we are brought into communion with God.Nevertheless, as Paul writes in Ephesians 2:13, ″you who were at one time afar off are brought near by the blood of Christ.″ Man is a long distance from God if he does not have the blood of Christ.
- God is reconciled as a result of his blood.
- Man is, by his own nature, at conflict with God, and we can only approach to God on His conditions of peace, which is via the blood atonement.
- In Colossians 1:20, the Bible states that ″and, having made peace through the blood of His cross, He has committed Himself to reconcile all things unto Himself.″ His blood purifies the body.
- Not only does it erase the punishment for sin, but it also removes pollutants from the environment.
- No matter what sin you have done, ″the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin,″ says the Bible (1 John 1:7).
- His blood grants him authority over the demon.
- The blood is what Satan is afraid of.
- ″And they defeated him with the blood of the Lamb,″ according to Revelation 12:11.
- The devil does not want you to become aware of the existence of blood.
- He despises it!
- God had already made up His mind in His heart that He would send His Son to die on the cross long before our planet was even thrown into outer space.
- What a joy it is to follow the red thread of Christ’s blood as it weaves its way across the pages of Scripture!
- How much more beautiful it would be to directly see its restoration.
- God is to be praised for the blood of His Lamb!
- The following is an excerpt from ″The Scarlet Thread across the Bible,″ published by Love Worth Finding Ministries (used by permission).
4 Things the Blood of Jesus Can Do According to the Bible
When it comes to hymns and praise songs, there is a multitude of material that speaks of Jesus’ blood.Some of my favorites are: ″What can wash away my sin?″ and ″What can wash away my sin?″ Nothing except the blood of Jesus can restore my health; what else can I turn to?There is nothing else save the blood of Jesus.In the blood of the Lamb, there is power, power, and wonderworking power; O triumph in Jesus, My Savior, for all eternity.
- He went out of His way to find me and purchase me with His redemptive blood.
- When it comes to the power of Jesus’ blood, what exactly is it, and why do we sing about it so much?
- When you consider the significance of the blood of Jesus in the Christian faith, you will realize that it is everything.
- In Hebrews 9:22, we are reminded that there is no forgiveness of sins without the spilling of blood on the part of the individual.
- It is impossible for us to be forgiven unless Jesus died on the cross and shed his blood in our place.
- Therefore, the blood of Jesus has the ability to first and foremost wipe away sins, and this should be of paramount importance to each Christian who believes in him.
The Blood of Jesus Is Life-Giving
- ″For the blood of the body contains the life of the body,″ Leviticus 17:11 reminds us. I have offered you the blood of the lamb on the altar in order to cleanse you and bring you into agreement with the LORD. Purification is made possible by the blood that has been donated in return for a life.″ When someone gives blood, they are actually donating a part of their life so that another person might live as long as possible. The momentary suffering and loss that one person endures in exchange for the larger gain of another is called a sacrifice. If a person does not have blood coursing through his or her veins, that individual does not have life. Jesus Himself understood that His blood would be given in a more significant way than through a blood drive or other means. Rather than granting life to a single or a small number of individuals, His blood grants life to everyone who accepts Him as their Savior. Sin has a fatal result, as we can see from the opening of the story. Because life is in the blood, we see God Himself instructing humans to sacrifice animals in order to atone for their sins from the beginning of time. (Genesis 3:21) The Bible says that The life of sacrificial animals were used as temporary atonements for the sins of the people, which were carried out by the priests of the temple. ″For every high priest chosen from among men is appointed on behalf of mankind in matters pertaining to God, in order to give both gifts and sacrifices for sins,″ according to Hebrews 5:1, ″in order to offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins.″ As we can see, Abraham’s faith resulted in his healing. It wasn’t so much about the sacrifice of sins as it was about the obedience that came from a heart of confidence in the fact that the Messiah was on his way. Biblical study tools such as BibleStudyTools.com present Bible scriptures that inform us that Jesus’ blood provides us with new life and redemption. 1 Thessalonians 1:17 We have redemption via his blood, as well as forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s mercy, because we are in him.″
- Hebrews 9:14 (see also So much more will the blood of Christ, who by the power of the eternal Spirit presented himself spotless to God, purify our consciences from deeds that lead to death, enabling us to serve the living God! The Bible says in Hebrews 13:12, ″And thus Jesus likewise suffered outside the city gate in order to make the people holy through his own blood.″
The Blood of Jesus Was Necessary
- It was necessary to have pure, flawless blood in order to be reconciled to God. When we think about our crimes and the devastation of separation that they have caused us from the Creator, we tend to avoid thinking about them. But in fact, we are subject to the punishment for sin, which is death. Reading about blood sacrifices made on behalf of God’s people in order to atone for their sins makes us even more conscious of what would have been needed of us if Jesus had not arrived. To be on this side of the cross is a huge blessing in our lives. Jesus’ blood washed away all of our sins in an one magnificent moment of death, and He gave us eternal life. Paul writes in Colossians 1:10, ″And through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross, by making peace with God the Father and with each other.″ The Bible says in Hebrews 9:22, ″In fact, the law requires that practically everything be washed with blood, and there is no forgiveness unless there is the spilling of blood.″ The following verses from Matthew 26:28: ″This is my blood of the covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.″
For a moment, I think back to the time when the angel of death was about to take away the firstborn sons in Egypt during the time of Moses.Because Pharaoh did not let the Israelites to go, this was the final plague to fall on Egypt.(See Exodus 12:23 for further information).When it came to protecting the first borns from death, it was required to use blood from a pure animal.
- This was a prophecy of the blood that Christ would one day shed on the cross in order to save us all from eternal death if we choose to believe in Him.
The Blood of Jesus Gives Freedom
Revelations 1:5 says that Then there is Jesus Christ, who is the true witness, the firstborn from among the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth.Thank you to the One who loves us and has cleansed us of our sins by his blood.″ We’ve all been given a death sentence.We have become entangled in the deceit and tempting of our wicked habits and are unable to escape.The atoning blood of Jesus frees us from the penalty of our sin.
- We no longer have to live under the yoke of sin and be subjected to its judgment.
- Those who follow Jesus will share in His victory because He has already won the victory.
- (1 Corinthians 15:57) The Bible says: Our fear of the punishment of eternal death and separation from God need not be a source of concern for us.
- We have been justified and rescued from the wrath of God because of the blood of Jesus.
- According to Webster’s Dictionary, justified implies ″having or demonstrating that one has a just, proper, or reasonable foundation.″ This indicates that we have been made right in God’s eyes via the sacrifice of Jesus.
- What our sins did wrong and led us to be guilty of, Jesus’ blood atoned for on our behalf via his death.
- Consider the possibility of being condemned to jail and eventually execution.
- The gut-wrenching realization that you were guilty and that you would not be able to pay your way out of it, smooth talk your way out of it, or debate your way out of it.
- Into the picture comes an exceptional individual who has never done anything wrong in his life.
- He claims that he would want to assume your place in the company.
- As a result, the guards bound him in shackles that were intended to be yours, insult him, beat him, and finally kill him rather than you in your place.
- This is exactly what Jesus accomplished for us via His shed blood.
- We no longer have to bear the burden of sin’s penalty, but it is because of His immense love that we have been set free from our bonds.
- 5:9 (Romans 5:9) In light of the fact that we have now been justified by his blood, how much more will we be saved from God’s wrath through him!″
The Blood of Jesus Was Perfect
It was necessary for Jesus to be faultless in order for His blood to make a difference.The fact that Jesus was both wholly God and entirely man contributed to His perfection.When a sacrifice was performed prior to Jesus’ death, it was always ″a man without flaw,″ according to the Bible.The Hebrew term tamiym, which means ″to be finished,″ comes from the root word tamam, which means ″to be done.″ The word tamiym means ″to be finished″ in English
