Under the Blood
For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the alter to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that makes an atonement for your souls. God tells us in His word that He has ordained that it is the shed blood of the innocent that Atones for our sins. The word atonement means to cover, or conceal, allowing the sinner to continue to follow and approach a Holy God. In the old Testament the High Priest went before God once a year with the blood of an lamb to make atonement for the sins of the Israelites, Godís chosen people. That atonement covered their sins for a whole year. Though this act of atonement was ordained by God, it did not prevent Godís wrath from falling upon the Israelites when they committed certain sins. There was a time during the wilderness wandering of the Israelites when Miriam spoke against Moses and God struck her with leprosy. People speak against Godís prophets today and are allowed to continue in the church.

In the Old Testament Achan coveted and stole some of the accursed spoil of the people of Ai and God told Joshua to stone him and his family. Today people covet and steal from Godís people and live. So we can see from these two examples that the atoning blood though ordained by God did not stop or prevent the wrath of God from falling on the sinner. Godís wrath crossed the blood. Yet today people commit the same sins and are spared. Why? Because we are protected by another blood, the blood of Jesus Christ. The blood of the animals of the Old Testament only covered the sins of the people, but the blood of Jesus Christ washes us from our sins and satisfies Godís righteous indignations and wrath. The blood of Jesus Christ Godís Son cleans us from all sin.

The word of God tells us that: ď being justified{ made right with God} through Jesusí blood, we shall be saved from wrath{ Godís wrath} through Christ.Ē My friend it is because of the blood of Jesus Christ that we live to see another day, for all have sinned and came short of the glory of God. In Jesus we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. But it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sin. On the hand, Jesus has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. Jesusí blood does more than cover my sins, it takes away my sins. The bible goes on to say that ď by Jesusí one offering on the cross on my behalf, He has perfected forever them that are sanctified, God cannot find a fault with me. People sometimes find fault with me, but because of the shed blood of Jesus Christ offered for me, God does not find any fault in me, I am perfected in Christ.

For Christ is not entered into the holy place made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us. Not only did Jesus shed His blood for us, but He is now in heaven standing before God interceding on our behalf. What can wash me whiter than snow? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. Are you under the Blood?...........................................................................................
