In The Name, Power, Blood And Authority Of Jesus Christ, Part IV

And for this reason, Jesus Christ is the Mediator of the new covenant by means of death (His own) for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. Hebrews 9:15

    In the Old Testament the High Priest would offer the sacrifice of a lamb for the atonement of the sins of the people of Israel once a year. The lamb would be slaughtered and the High Priest would take the blood into the Holy of Holies behind the veil and would smear the lamb's blood on the mercy seat of the ark of the covenant seven times representing the seven places Jesus bled for us, a type and shadow of things yet to come.

    The word of God states that without the shedding of blood there can be no remission of sin! The lamb chosen by the High Priest had to be without spot or blemish even as Jesus was also without sin, being the sacrifice for all of mankind as the "Lamb of God!" The Lord Jesus shed His blood from the garden of Gethsemane to the cross on Calvary seven times, giving us a complete and lasting deliverance from sin, sickness and eternal death. There is only One ever in the history of the world, since the time of creation to die for mankind, making a way of escape from eternal damnation through the shedding of His blood.

    As the old hymn states: "There is power, power, wonder working power in the blood of the Lamb!" There is no other cleansing agent that can remove the stains of man's sins, transgressions and iniquities but the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, "The Lamb of God!"

    By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified. Hebrews 10:10-14
