Text: Topical = Blood/Salvation
Exd 12:13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye [are]: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy [you], when I smite the land of Egypt.
1Cor 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
I. First mention of blood in scripture
Gen 4:10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground. Foreshadows the Atonement; Abel was a shepard Gen 4:2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. Abel was hated without cause 1Jo 3:12 Not as Cain, [who] was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous. Abel died a violent death by wicked hands,as did our Lord Act 2:23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: As the blood of Abel cried to God ,So does the Blood of Christ cry Godward for His people!! Hbr 12:24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than [that of] Abel.
Lev 17:11 For the life of the flesh [is] in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it [is] the blood [that] maketh an atonement for the soul.
Jhn 6:53 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. Jhn 6:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh
my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
Exd 12:13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye [are]: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy [you], when I smite the land of Egypt. And when I see the blood I will pass over you
II. What the scriptures teach about the blood of Christ
A. Eternally Appointed
Rev 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Mat 27:4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What [is that] to us? see thou [to that].
Luk 23:22 And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let [him] go.
1Pe 1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Hbr 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
Mat 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Hbr 9:14 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?
Hbr 9:12 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]. Hbr 9:28 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.
III. The blood brings about;
Rom 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
2Cr 5:18 And all things [are] of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
Col 1:21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in [your] mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
Col 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, [even] the forgiveness of sins: 1Pe 1:18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, [as] silver and gold, from your vain conversation [received] by tradition from your fathers; 1Pe 1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Rom 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were
far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
Conclusion: When I see the blood
The precious blood of Christ is set forever before the eyes of God,we may be like the Israelite,inside the house and cannot see the blood but God sees the blood of His Son applied to all of His people. It is not your faith in the blood ,but God seeing the blood, it is not your turning to the blood ,but God seeing the blood.
Do not make a saviour of your God given faith or of repentance,but rather remember it is only the blood of Christ which stands between a sinner and the wrath of God!
