The Blood of Jesus

Jesus foretold the absolute necessity of his coming death by referring to thebrazen serpent that Moses raised in the desert (Num. 21:8,9).

John 3:14 - And as Moses lifted up the serpent in thewilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, buthave eternal life.

The serpent is a type of sin and Christ became sin for us, that we might be the righteousness of God in Him (IICor. 5:21).

God established that only blood could remit sin.

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 anatonement for your souls: for it [is] the blood [that] makethan atonement for the soul.

Atonement means to be made "at one" with God.The atoning blood had to be from a spotless lamb.

Exodus 12:5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male ofthe first year: ye shall take [it] out from the sheep, orfrom the goats:

Jesus is the only one who ever fulfilled this requirement.God promised freedom from judgement, through the blood.

Exodus 12:13 And the blood shall be to you for a token uponthe houses where ye [are]: and when I see the blood, I willpass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you todestroy [you], when I smite the land of Egypt.

We are saved from wrath by the blood of Jesus.

Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood,we shall be saved from wrath through him.

We receive spiritual cleansing and are are eternally redeemed by the blood of Jesus.

Hebrews 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, butby his own blood he entered in once into the holy place,having obtained eternal redemption [for us].
13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashesof an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to thepurifying of the flesh:
14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who throughthe eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God,purge your conscience from dead works to serve the livingGod?

1 Peter 1:18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemedwith corruptible things, [as] silver and gold, from your vainconversation [received] by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lambwithout blemish and without spot:

We have peace through the blood of Christ.

Colossians 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; byhim, [I say], whether [they be] things in earth, or things inheaven.
21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in[your] mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present youholy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and [be] not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which yehave heard, [and] which was preached to every creature whichis under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

Being cleansed by the blood, we are to have a godly walk.

Ephesians 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath lovedus, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrificeto God for a sweetsmelling savour.

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hathappeared to all men,
12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldlylusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, inthis present world;
13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the gloriousappearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us fromall iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people,zealous of good works.

We'll praise Him at the throne, for the blood.

Revelation 5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou artworthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: forthou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood outof every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and weshall reign on the earth.

Jesus the only intercessor.

Isaiah 59:16 . And he saw that[there was] no man, and wondered that [there was] nointercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him;and his righteousness, it sustained him.

Jesus our only food.

John 6:35 . And Jesus said untothem, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shallnever hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

Jesus the only source of truth.

John 6:68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast thewords of eternal life

Jesus, the only name that contains salvation.

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there isnone other name under heaven given among men, whereby wemust be saved.

Jesus, the only remedy.

John 3:14 . And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of manbe lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, buthave eternal life.
