BLOOD COVENANT

     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. 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. Hebrews 9:11,12

    The Old Covenant was fulfilled in Christ and a New Covenant was inaugurated with the blood of Christ! Covenant means, a binding contract likened to being blood brothers with someone. In our case we are blood brothers and sisters with Christ!

    When Jesus suffered, died and rose again the old priesthood was done away with and a new and living way was introduced. Jesus became our High Priest and we became His royal priesthood, a holy people no longer under law but grace. Jesus fulfilled the law and the temple was destroyed, the priesthood was done away with and the powers of darkness were disarmed.

    The veil of separation in the temple was torn from top to bottom by the angels as Jesus drew His last breath, signifying man's ability to come before the throne of the Most High through the blood of Christ! Are you washed in the Savior's blood, are your sins forgiven and have you surrendered your life and heart to the Lord Jesus Christ? If not, church will just be another dead religious ritual and you will continue on your final journey to eternal damnation with the devil and his angels!
    
    For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies to the purifying of the flesh: 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? And for this cause He is the mediator of the new covenant, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first covenant, they which are called might receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. Hebrews 9:13-15

BLOOD COVENANT
 
  "Then the High Priest shall come out to the altar that is before the LORD and make atonement for it. He shall take some of the bull’s blood and some of the goat’s blood and put it on all the horns of the altar. He shall sprinkle some of the blood on it with his finger seven times to cleanse it and to consecrate it from the uncleanness of the Israelites. “When Aaron has finished making atonement for the Most Holy Place, the tent of meeting and the altar, he shall bring forward the live goat. He is to lay both hands on the head of the live goat and confess over it all the wickedness and rebellion of the Israelites—all their sins—and put them on the goat’s head. He shall send the goat away into the wilderness in the care of someone appointed for the task.  The goat will carry on itself all their sins to a remote place; and the man shall release it in the wilderness." Leviticus 16:18-22

    In the Old Testament the High Priest was the only one who could enter the Holy of Holies with the blood of the sacrifice to atone for the sins of the people. To atone means to cleanse, to cover, cancel, forgive, pardon and reconcile. In the New Covenant Jesus is our High Priest and His blood shed for us washes our sins away!

    The Old Testament held a type and shadow of the Lord Jesus Christ yet to come and He has become our High Priest who was sacrificed for our sins and iniquities once and for all! He died once as the Lamb of God for our sins to cleanse His people forever. The Lord Jesus Christ was a perfect sacrifice without spot or blemish, able to forgive, cleanse and totally wash away the sins of mankind!

    From the time of Adam's sin and rebellion against God in the garden when Adam told the Most High he was naked, God then killed an animal and sprinkled the blood over him cleansing his sin because only a blood sacrifice can bring about remission of sins. As we will see in devotions yet to come from the Garden of Gethsemane to the cross Jesus bled in seven specific places to set us free from our sins and iniquities that separated us from the Most High!

    "This is the blood of the covenant which God has commanded you." Then likewise he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry. And according to law almost all things are purified (cleansed) with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no remission." Hebrews 9:20-22

BLOOD COVENANT

     For the wages of sin is death (eternal death) but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

    We have all been born in sin inherited from Adam, a generational curse of sickness, disease, poverty and eternal death has come down the bloodline to us all! We are all born to die and be tormented in Hell forever if we don't confess and repent of our sins! For all have sinned and fall short of His glory!
    
    Most are never convicted of their sins and that is why many are lost and going to Hell because they were never made aware of the consequences of their actions. The watered down, sugar coated Gospel of today never touches the heart of man, only tickling his ears, he feels good about praying a prayer but is never convicted and so ends up dying in his sins and is judged forever in Hell!

    Mankind is born to die in his inherited sins if they are not acknowledged, confessed and repented of. When Adam sinned against God, he along with all of us were expelled from paradise! Jesus shed His blood in seven places to restore us from the wrath and righteous judgment of God!

    For as by one man's disobedience (Adam) many were made sinners, so also by one Man's obedience (Jesus) many will be made righteous. Romans 5:19

BLOOD COVENANT

     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. "Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. Matthew 26:27,28

    Salvation is not about praying a prayer, walking an isle or being baptized and joining the church! Salvation is about the remission of your sins! Remission means to forgive, pardon, to gain relief, and to refrain from enforcing punishment!


    Today in the religious world, the precious blood of the Lord Jesus is hardly ever spoken of not wanting to upset some by the fact that Jesus was beaten, whipped and cruelly executed on a rugged tree! Inviting Jesus to be your own personal Savior is much easier with less thought of someone shedding His own blood!

    The ugly truth of the most important matter to be discussed in the world is the hardcore fact that Jesus, the Lamb of God was slaughtered for us because of our sins and He took the punishment for us to whom it was due!

    
   And according to the law almost all things are purified (cleansed) with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no remission (forgiveness) of sins. Hebrews 9:22

    "If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple." Luke 14:26

    Jesus is not telling people to hate their family, He is saying that we are to love Him more! To the modern Christian in today's mad world of everything is more important than following Jesus and church is just a number on a very long to-do list, we have missed the mark of discipleship!

    In previous messages I have warned of the danger of walking an isle, praying a prayer, getting baptized and calling yourself a disciple of Christ when in fact you were not convicted of your sins and were only convinced by a preacher to ask Jesus to be your personal Savior, as if He is your personal God to do your bidding!

    Jesus tells all who would follow Him to count the cost of being His disciple! Are you willing to give up all the things that family demand, job demands or even pleasure demands? There are so many things that are competing for our time and attention that greatly diminish our time for the Lord Jesus and His mission!

    "So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple." Luke 14:33

    “A certain man gave a great supper and invited many, and sent his servant at supper time to say to those who were invited, ‘Come, for all things are now ready.’ Luke 14:16,17

    The "Great Commission" has been given to all believers to go and preach the gospel to all nations, not just professional preachers or theologians, but all of us are called to GO! Problem being, most are staying, making excuses why they shouldn't, like those who were invited to God's supper!

    Those whom the servant invited gave excuses of buying land, trying out their oxen and another had just been married and excused himself! Today is no different, the church is too comfortable here in America wanting a nice message of peace and safety while the world drops off into a burning inferno forever! We are the called and no-one else is going to do our job! The world is lost and dying all around us needing the gospel of Jesus Christ and we hold the keys to eternal life!

    Will you obey the commission? Will you lay down your life for the lost, will you give your money to support those who will? There are millions of excuses why we shouldn't, couldn't or wouldn't go but none of these are sufficient to excuse us from our God-given duty! So, what's your excuse?

    Then the master said to the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. For I say to you that none of those men who were invited shall taste my supper.’ ” Luke 14:23,24

ON THE JOB TRAINING 

      "When you give a dinner or a supper, do not ask your friends, your brothers, your relatives, nor rich neighbors, lest they also invite you back, and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind." Luke 14:12,13

    Many years ago, not long after I was saved, our church was having communion and a man from the streets that someone brought in saw it sitting on the table and went up and ate and drank it and everyone gasped! To him if you set out food and drink its provision for him and he thought nothing of helping himself, but to religious folks it was appalling.

    In my church career I saw many such instances of hypocrisy and downright disdain for the poor and needy which challenged me to go out into the streets and minister to those who were in need! One thing about it there is no shortage of people in need but it takes divine wisdom and discernment to do it right without being taken advantage of.

    There were many times I was falsely accused, robbed and slandered for reaching out to folks, some of which were thieves, liars and demonized out to con whoever! The fiasco at our border is an example of how not to do something without wisdom or any knowledge of what they are doing and it will harm thousands and cost America millions for their ignorant policies!

    And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just. Luke 14:14

    And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up. But when Jesus saw her,  He called her to Him and said to her,  "Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity." Luke 13:11,12

    Jesus gave us all authority over sickness, disease and infirmity, to bind and also to loose! At the cross the powers of darkness were defeated and put under our feet! Jesus used that which we are given to loose this woman from her infirmity that she suffered with for all those years!

    Today we see multitudes of people with all sorts of sicknesses and millions spent on remedies for everything from arthritis to cancer, much to no avail! The truth is, most diseases and infirmities are caused by demons. This is why most are not helped, because whatever ails them is demonic and has to be cast out!

    The hospitals are full and millions of people are afflicted who have been demonized and cannot be healed by conventional means because of a spirit of infirmity that must be cast out! Jesus commanded us to heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead!

    And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God! Luke 13:13

    Sell what you have and give alms; provide yourselves money bags which do not grow old, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches nor moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. “Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately. Luke 12:33-36

    If your treasure is in the bank and your heart seeks to store up the almighty dollar you may be in for a rude awakening because the present regime just gave it all away! Trillions are being sent out for a so-called stimulus for Covid victims and other Covid related items when in fact it is being stolen for the pet projects and utter foolish notions of a government gone mad!

    The true body of the living Lord Jesus Christ was not put here to gain wealth, but to reap a harvest of souls from the earth and that is our treasure. We are His workers sent to save the souls of the lost and make disciples of all nations! While many are seeking the riches of this world we need to be about the business at hand, fighting the good fight of faith and rescuing those who are descending into the very pits of Hell!

    What is the soul of a man worth to God? I would say it is the most valuable commodity in the world to a Father who gave His Son to save them. This ought to be as valuable to us who have been given the commission to see them saved and set free! As the scripture says, we ought to be watching and waiting for our Master who when He comes will say to us who have done the will of God, "Well done good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of the Lord!"

    Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them. Luke 12:37

    Then He said to His disciples, “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing. Luke 12:22,23

    We are living in very uncertain times with a socialist regime that has stolen an election, invaded the government and manipulating an unstable senile President who doesn't know what day it is who is destroying America! For too long Americans have become complacent just being about their own business and the Evangelical church is sound asleep!

    America is in dire straits with China looking to dominate the world while we are being destroyed from within! Just when you think it cant get worse our borders are opened and thousands now and millions to come will kill our jobs and spread the virus across the land! Illegal aliens from many countries are like fire ants carrying disease, drugs and sex-trafficking children! So with all this going on what does the believer do?

    Our position is to "Trust in the Lord with all of our heart and not lean on our own understanding." Jesus had the weight of the world on His shoulders with no home or wealth and even at times, no food and yet He walked in peace! That is where we are to walk, following His example and trusting our Source for our needs to be met!

    “And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind. For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things. But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you. “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:29-32

    Then He spoke a parable to them, saying: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully. And he thought within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?’ So he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods. And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.” ’ But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?’ Luke 12:16-20

    We will never know at what time we will die (unless we ask) and so we should live for Him as though it would be tonight! Would your life be any different if you knew the time of your departure? This is our life, to live for Him as if there would be no tomorrow!

    This life is like a vapor, here today and gone tomorrow, so we have to make hay while the Son is shining and complete our work while on the earth. Our destiny is to do that which Holy Spirit has given us to do as His workers! Many are storing up treasure and building bigger houses, barns and bank accounts to store up their goods, but it can all end in an instant!

    Several years ago I was reading a scripture in the psalms when I ran across David asking the Lord to make him know the end of his days so that he would know how frail he was, so I also asked the Lord and He said immediately, 2028! I will be 80 and now I know how much time I have to complete the work He has given me!

    I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. Psalm 139:14-16
