PRECIOUS BLOOD 2
In Hebrews 9: i3-14 we read that His blood is sufficient to atone for our sin.
13For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
14How 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? This sacrifice is final and covers all our sins! Hebrews 9:24For 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: 25Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;26For 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. 27And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 28So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
1 John 1: 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. As tide cleans our dirty stained clothes, it takes the precious blood of Jesus to clean us and wash our souls and spirits white as snow. Rev. 12:11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. The blood of the Lamb is conquering over sin and spiritual death. There is power in the blood of the Lamb.
In the following verses of scripture we are told that the power in the blood of the Lamb provides: Eph.2:13-16— Reconciliation. Romans 3:24Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
25Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; These verses tell us His blood gives Redemption. Romans 5:9Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. We are Justified. [ made righteous before God ] Hebrews 10:29 states that we are being Sanctified [ set apart ]. Matt.26:26-29 tells that we have Communion with Him through His blood. Rev.12:11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. We have Victory! John 6:53-56 tells that through the blood we have the most precious gift ever given, the gift of Eternal life! Yes there is power in the blood!
