How Much More  Will the Blood  of Christ

The wisdom,  power,  and will  of God  cannot be fully explained.     There’s so much more  to it  than we can fathom.     But,  as we look  at all  of God’s creation  and see the fulfillment  of so many biblical prophecies  regarding our Savior,  Jesus Christ,  we get a small glimpse  of that wisdom,  power,  and will.

Because of that,  we need  to realize  God’s wisdom,  power,  and will  in forgiving absolutely  all of our sins  as we put our faith  in  the “blood  of Christ”.     Hebrews 9:13-14 says,

For  if the blood  of goats  and bulls  and the ashes  of a heifer sprinkling those  who have been defiled  sanctify  for the cleansing  of the flesh,  how much more  will the blood  of Christ,  who through the eternal Spirit  offered Himself  without blemish  to God,  cleanse your conscience  from dead works  to serve the living God?

Before the total destruction  of the Temple  in Jerusalem  —  which was prophesied  by Jesus  70 years  before it took place  —  the Jewish people,  according to Old Testament law,  sacrificed goats,  sheep,  and cattle  for the forgiveness  of their sins.     The blood  of these animals  was declared  a valid sacrifice  to wash away their sins.     Genesis, chapter 4  tells of Abel sacrificing “the firstlings  of his flock”,  so we see  that sacrifices  were made  from the very beginning.

Because these sacrifices  were temporarily  acceptable  in God’s eyes,  the sins  of the people were forgiven.     But,  there is another truth shown  in Hebrews 10:3-4,

But  in those sacrifices  there is a reminder  of sins  year by year.     For it is impossible  for the blood  of bulls  and goats  to take away sins.

Because animal sacrifices  don’t actually “take away sins”,  the people always carried  a burden  of guilt.    But,  the shed  “blood  of Christ”  does  “cleanse your conscience”.     We are now free  “to serve  the living God” because   the sinless Jesus  was the most perfect,  worthy,  and holy sacrifice.     Jesus’ one-time death  totally forgives  the sins  of all  who trust  in Him.     With Jesus,  our  “conscience”  is at peace.

In a joyous freedom  and assurance  of eternal life,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Thank You,  Lord Jesus!”

Love,
