4 Mat 26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, "Take, eat; this is My body."Mat 26:27 Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you.Mat 26:28 For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.Mat 26:29 But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father's kingdom."
6 I don’t know what comes to your mind when you hear about the Blood of Jesus: The theme of the blood of Christ is the MOST important one in the Bible.The reason for this is because Jesus’s blood was:Innocent.Pure.Sinless.No guilt.Heb 9:11 But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation. 12 Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. 13 For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, 14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?Is always encouraging to talk, think, to meditate and to exhort to one another of all the things that the blood of Christ has done for you and I and can do also for you if you are not a Christians!
7 To the ENSLAVED, His blood purchases (1 Pet. 1:18-19) REDEMPTIONTo the ENSLAVED, His blood purchases (1 Pet. 1:18-19)To the UNCLEAN, His blood provides (Rev. 1:5; 1 John 1:7)To the INDEBTED, His blood produces (Mt. 26:28; Heb. 9:22)To the GUILTY, His blood pronounces (Rom. 5:9; 3:23-26)To the ESTRANGED, His blood presents (Eph. 2:13; Col. 1)To the OUTSIDER, His blood promises (Heb. 10:19)To the WORLDLY, His blood provides (Heb. 13:12)To the PERSECUTED, His blood procures (Rev. 12:11)PURIFICATIONThe wonder working power of the Blood of Christ is at hand, an any one can reach it and take possession of it.We all must understand who we were and what the Blood of the Lord has done for all of us.For example the Bible plainly says that you and I were:REMISSIONJUSTIFICATIONRECONCILIATIONADMISSIONSANCTIFICATIONDOMINATION
8 In the water of baptismBaptized into the death of Christ (Rom. 6:3-4),Receive all benefits of His blood (Col. 2:11-13)Some reject baptism and relinquish every wonder of the blood (Luke 7:30; Mark 16:16)Some respond to baptism and receive every wonder of the blood (Acts 2:38; 8:39; 22:16; Gal. 3:27)How can I come in contact with the Blood of Christ?There is only one way.You must have faith in the Lord and then you MUST obey that faith by being baptized in water!This is the only way to come in contact with the Blood of Jesus I DON’T KNOW ANY OTHER WAY!
9 In the walk of faithfulness Walk in the light of Christ with Christ, continue to receive all wonders and benefits of His blood (1 Jn 1:7)Some Christians turn their walk in another direction, “counting the blood…a common thing” (Heb. 10:26- 29)Some Christians continue walking in Christ, and His blood continually cleanses them from sin (1 John 1:7)The other way my brothers, sisters and friend for this blood to work in you and I is by being faithful and WALK always in faithfulness!We are already in contact with the Blood of Christ through baptism, but in order to continue to receive all the benefits that the blood offers daily we mustContinue in faithfulness!The promise is there, the choice is ours!
10 In the worship of communion The cup of the communion was instituted as an emblem of His blood (Matt. 26:28; 1 Cor. 11:25)Some partake “in an unworthy manner” and are “guilty of…the blood of the Lord” (1 Cor. 11:27)Some partake:Remembering Him (11:25)Examining self (11:28)Discerning the Lord’s body (11:29)Communing with Him weekly allows His wonder to work in usAnother way to continue in touch with the wonder power of the Blood of Christ is by partaking of the communion of every first day of the week!Remember this remembrance was instituted as an emblem of the blood that Jesus shed on the cross for the sins of all men!Some people come to church and partake in a very disloyal attitude the bible calls that: “Unworthy” manner. You are not worthy to drinkOf this cup because you have no understanding of all the things that the blood of Jesus has accomplished.Some people comes and partake:Remembering the Lord and His love for us.Examining themselves before they come. They talk to themselves, and they do this by staying away from sin! They do not bring condemnationunto themselves but are very honest with God and their brethren!Staying away from this commandment and privilege will just help us to go farther and farther from the blood of Christ and then be condemnedIn the last day!
