REDEEMED
By the Blood of Jesus!



Behold, The LAMB of GOD

"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."
-1st Peter 1:18,19




Without a doubt, the blood of Jesus Christ is the most precious gift our heavenly Father has given to His church. We don't hear enough these days about the precious blood of Jesus, "...and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin" (1st John 1:7). 

When Jesus Christ went to the cross almost 2,000 years ago, He was the ULTIMATE sacrifice. A bloody sacrifice indeed.

   His skin was whipped off,
   His beard was torn out of his cheeks,
   His head pierced with thorns,
   His face beaten to a pulp. He was unrecognizable. The Bible says
     He was more marred than ANY man.
   His hands and feet were nailed through with thick spikes,
   His side pierced with a spear after He died

What a wonderful Savior!  Jesus paid a debt He did not owe, because we owed a debt we could not pay.  Our sins had to be paid for with Jesus' blood.  In the Old Testament, the people's sins were only ATONED (i.e., covered) for.  Leviticus 17:11 states, "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."  This Scripture speaks of the blood of animals, which were sacrificed to temporarily cover the sins of the people in the Old Testament, until the Messiah would come and offer the perfect Sacrifice of Himself to God the Father.   We read in Hebrews 9:12 concerning Jesus, "Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us."  Jesus' blood didn't atone for our sins; but rather, took them away forever!

Jesus' Blood Sacrifice is All Sufficient

Hebrews 9:24-26 state, "For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now ONCE in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself."  Jesus' blood applied to the Mercy Seat in Heaven is all-sufficient.  Jesus only needed to offer Himself as a sacrifice once.

The blood of animals had to be shed over and over but the blood of Jesus was shed only one time.:

Hebrews 10:12, ...after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God.
Hebrews 7:27 ...this he did once, when he offered up himself.
Hebrews 9:28 ...Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many...
Hebrews 10:10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
Hebrews 10:14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

The blood of Jesus is powerful. It is a saving, healing blood. Look at what the blood has done:

Jesus died on the cross, was buried to confirm His death, and then rose victoriously three days later.



"In whom we have redemption through his blood,
even the forgiveness of sins."

-Colossians 1:14



Hebrews 9:22, "...without shedding of blood is no remission. (forgivness )"

From the blood of Abel's slain lamb in Genesis, to the robes of the saints washed in the blood in Revelation, the Word of God centers around the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ.   Jesus' death was just as important as His blood sacrifice, and equally important the burial and resurrection; BUT everything concerning the events of Jesus' life were leading up to the blood being applied in Heaven.  Hebrews 9:24-26 state, "For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us..."  That is, God the Father.  Jesus took His shed blood to Heaven to present unto the Father, by applying it to the Mercy Seat.  This is why Jesus said to Mary in John 20:17, "Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father..."  The blood couldn't be tainted.  Jesus needed to apply the blood in Heaven, just as the Old Testament Highpriest did in the holy of holies in the tabernacle.

Thanks be to God for sending His only begotten Son into the world to pay for our sins... "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."  The reason WHY we are to trust Christ alone for salvation is because of the blood that He shed for our sins.  ONLY Jesus has the nail-scared hands and feet!  No one else!  Salvation is found only in Jesus Christ (Acts 4:10-12; John 14:6) because God's blood was shed upon the cross... "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" (Acts 20:28).  The blood that flowed from Jesus' veins was not the sinful, tainted, blood of Adam; NO, rather, it was the blood of God. 
 

The LITERAL Blood of Jesus Had to be Applied to the Mercy Seat in Heaven

The blood was to be sprinkled, remember, on the mercy seat right after the death of the substitutionary animal of sacrifice,  Now Christ is, of course, our substitute.  He was slain for us upon the Cross, and entered into death for us, and when He arose, He immediately went to heaven, entered into the holy of holies in heaven, sprinkled His precious blood upon the mercy seat before the throne of God, and forever settled the sin questions, and delivered us from the curse of the law.  This is clearly taught in the New testament.  Hebrews 9:12 is very definite on this:

"But by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us."

The Bible also makes plain when He accomplished this.  On the morning of the resurrection He meets Mary at the tomb.  As soon as Mary recognized Him, she prostrated herself upon Him, and would have kissed His feet, but with shocking suddenness, Jesus emphatically says to her: "Touch me not"; and then He proceeds immediately to give the reason why Mary is not permitted to touch Him at all.

"For I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God." (John 20:17)

Literally the Lord Jesus Christ said, "Touch me not; for I now am about to ascend unto my Father."  We can understand this action when we remember the the high priest after he had offered the sacrifice, was to enter the holy of holies, before he did anything else, with the precious blood.  No one was allowed to approach him.  Everyone was shut out until this was completely done.  And here in the record of the meeting with Mary we have the fulfillment of this type.  Here Mary meets her great High Priest, just arisen from the tomb, but before He had entered the holy of holies with the reconciling blood.  And so He says to her, "TOUCH ME NOT."
