“Praise the Lord, who is my rock, He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle.” Psalm 144:1
CHAPTER FIVE - (THE BLOOD)
Can we talk about the blood of Jesus? We are inadmissible in God’s presence without the blood of Jesus His Son that washes away our sin! Without the blood of Jesus there is no remission of sin and without the remission of sin no one can enter into heaven. As we read, “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without the shedding of blood there is no remission.” Hebrews 9:22 There shall be no sin nor darkness in Heaven! Without the shed blood of Jesus Christ our sin sticks to us like glue and there is no way for us to get to heaven. That is why we read, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:12
“What can wash away our sins? Nothing but the blood of Jesus! What can make us whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus! O precious is the flow that makes us white as snow, no other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus!” What a great hymn this is, I love it, and every time I sing this it reminds me of all that Jesus has done for me and so many others! So how is it that a sinner can obtain this? Let us see all that Christ has done.
“But Christ being come a high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands that is to say, not of this building; 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. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” Hebrews 9:11-14
