feast: The Talking Blood


Given 03-Oct-20; 54 minutes

Description: (hide)

Christ admonishes His people to prepare for difficult times by cultivating a close relationship with their Savior, Who took the bold step of temporarily removing His divinity, becoming a flesh-and-blood human, then shedding His blood, giving up His life for their salvation. As God's called-out ones, we realize that without Christ's death we have no future and apart from Christ we can do nothing, being just as incapable of creating spiritual life as Adam and Eve were of physical life. We are either in Christ or not in Christ; there is no middle ground. The major Judeo-Christian religions are hemorrhaging members at a rate of 2.7 million people annually (over 3,500 per day), embracing as they do so worldly standards—certainly a contributory factor in the burning of cities and the destruction of culture (Isaiah 1:1-9). Unless God saves a remnant, all Israel would perish like Sodom and Gomorrah for their sins. I John 5:6-9 provides three witnesses to Christ's salvific work on mankind's behalf, namely water (signifying baptism), blood (signifying Christ's blood, which covers sin), and spirit (signifying the earnest payment of the Holy Spirit, granting us Christ's mind). God's Word refers to the concept of blood sacrifice 427 times, indicating that God does not want mankind to forget what His Son did, reminding us that death is the only means of atoning for sin.
