I share with you today, the significance of that blood that was shed on the cross. Dating from the old testament. I summarized this knowing it is a busy time.
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.
Atonement is a sin offering that wascarried out every year Exodus 30:10 And Aaron shall make atonement upon the horns of it once in a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonements: once in the year shall he make atonement upon it throughout your generations: it is most holy unto the LORD.
It is the blood that stands or take the place of the soul that has to die because of sin Ezekiel 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
For souls to live that must feed on the flesh and blood of Christ John 6:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. Just as the body is sustain by food and drink.
Jesus bought you with his blood Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood., 1 Peter 1:18-19 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Our peace made by the blood on the cross John 20:19-26
Every sacrifice requires blood The blood of Jesus has the superior quality because it is sinless and every blood speaks Hebrews 12:24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
