More on The Lord Jesus’ Ultimate and Eternal Sacrifice

Understand this: without the Blood that The LORD Jesus Christ shed on the Cross, Christians would have no path to forgiveness. And without God’s forgiveness, there is no way to eternal life.  Look at these verses in wholesale Christian Bibles:

last-supper-2     “And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins (Matthew 26: 26 – 28).”

Also: “For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you.
Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.

“And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

“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. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So 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 (Hebrews 9: 19-28).”

In-depth teaching on the shed Blood of Jesus is vital in the United States and around the world, because several cults in the U.S. which claim to be Christian deny the power of the Holy Blood of Christ.

For instance in her religious instructional book, “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,” Mary Baker Eddy, founder of Christian Science, writes that the blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross has no Science-Health-Key-To-The-Scripturesmore power than it did in His veins before He died.  Such a horrendous statement is unbelievable!

I have not read what the Mormon Church says about the precious blood of Christ, but as it has many other steps necessary before their concept of heaven can be reached, it obviously does not value the shed Blood of Jesus.

And undoubtedly as Jehovah Witnesses insist that The Lord Jesus was/is not God, but simply “a god,” they obviously cannot consider His Blood on the Cross as absolutely necessary to insure man’s forgiveness from God.

While claiming to be Christian, such cults put the burden upon men and women to do laborious work in order to obtain God’s forgiveness.

In contrast, The LORD Jesus teaches that unless true believers eat, ingest, revere His Blood and His flesh they cannot internalize His life of salvation:

“Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

“For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live forever (John 6: 53 – 58).”

Further, Hebrews 13: 12 insists that The LORD’s Blood alone makes believers holy—there is no work we can do for Him to obtain holiness before Him and His Father. Our work is just to believe in Him and in His Word.

In fact, Colossians 1: 20 collapses everything in earth and in heaven as only reconciled by and through The Holy Blood of Jesus:

“And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.”

So be sure to prayerfully take communion often—either with others or by yourself—and thank Your Heavenly Father that, with His Blood, Jesus paid for your success on earth and your pathway to heaven for all eternity!
