It Takes The Blood (1 John 1:7)Tommy Boring, June 2, 2018
Part of the Communion Services series, preached at a Communion service
Without the shedding of blood there can never be a remission of sin. In the Old Testament it was a rule that no one was to drink blood. Blood is life. Folks want to be talked to nicely, encouraged, strengthened and uplifted when they walk into a church.
The Old Testament was a dirty part of the bible that blood was given for sins. Many of animals were sacrificed time and time again as their blood poured out.
When Adam and Eve sinned in the garden an animal had to be sacrificed for its skin to cover their nakedness. Cain and Abel brought their sacrifice before God but only Abel was accepted because it was blood and was his best. Noah sacrificed the clean animals just as soon as he walked out onto dry land because he knew they had sinned and also God saved them. Abraham obeyed God and took his son Izaak to be sacrificed. When God knew Abraham was serious he stopped his hand and gave him a ram to be the sacrifice. Moses was told that on a certain day he was to take a perfect lamb, sacrifice it and use its blood to mark those houses that are believers in order to avoid death. Solomon had a 100,000 lambs sacrificed for the dedication of the temple of God.
Where is your sacrifice?
God has warned us about sin and that something has to die for it to be removed.
Then one night the shepards were told that a lamb was born and this spotless lamb would remove ALL the sins of the world forever more. We have the privilege to get on our hands and knees to pray to God just because Jesus was sacrificed for His blood. Before Jesus' ultimate sacrifice, we would not be allowed to do such a thing. Jesus Christ began His blood sacrifice in the garden for when He wept. He then was tortured and beat almost to death. Forced to carry a wooden cross thru town all the while being mocked and spat upon. He was then laid upon a cross and nailed to it and then stripped naked and rose to the sky for everyone to see. As the blood of His body drained out and He died, a soldier took his sword and pierced His side and blood and water flowed out. Once Christ was dead He took His own blood and presented it to His father as a worthy sacrifice for ALL.
