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
Francisco de Zurbaran - Agnus Dei
Precious blood, so freely given
Saves from wrath, and justifies
Points to deepest sins, forgiven
Cleanses, heals and sanctifies
Purchase price, of full redemption
Sprinkled blood, to hearts, applied
No one else, could claim pre emption
For the church, save He, who died
Without hope of vindication
Now, by Jesus' blood, made nigh
Clothed with robes, of full salvation
Washed in blood, to purify
There are three, that bear the witness
Spirit, water and the blood
Conscience cleansed, in Christ made righteous
Fit, to serve the living God
Peace and reconciliation
Things in earth, and heaven above
View this wondrous, expiation
Crimson tide, of perfect love
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Col 1 12-14 KJV
For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled. In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel. Col 1 19-23 KJV
There can be no other way!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
