The Blood of Bulls and goats:
“For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.”
Throughout the Old Testament, man had to give up something meaningful, important, something that cost them.
They had to sacrifice the best of their flock, from the time of the Passover, (to save their firstborn), to the yearly sacrifices to cleanse from sin.
So they, find themselves sanctified, set apart from the rest of the world, in the service of God, for a time.
That their sin, would be forgiven.
They had to keep making this sacrifice, giving of the best of their flock, to stay in right standing with God.
Seems crazy to the modern man, ridiculous, meaningless, even stupid. To give up the best of what they had, to please an invisible God.
Why? Sin. What is SIN?
There is no such thing as sin, if it feels good, do it, if it tastes good, eat it, if you like it, do it again.
I have my own standards, we don’t need a Fictional God, to tell me, right from wrong.
Momma taught us, instilled in us morality, the Golden rule, and integrity….
Don’t you dare judge me….
Really? Look around you, how’s that working?
If you believe in a higher power or not, can you not recognize the Decay, Destruction, and Danger that lies ahead?
The Police are now targets, the criminals, victims. Illegal aliens, and felons, encouraged to vote, when our laws forbid it.
People, paid to riot, to change their votes, to disrupt, to overthrow the will of the people.
Every man doing what is right in his own eyes.
This invisible, fictional character, (this God character), that, those of us, who believe, know as Jesus. Is real.
He was sent down by the Father above, to save the World from sin.
That which is displeaseing to Him. That, which we know in our hearts is wrong.
It really is simple, you see the glory of His creation, and deny the Creator.
God has given every one of us, a measure of faith, to believe, if we would.
Whosoever will. Is the key. It is our choice…
“But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.”
The blood of bulls and goats, hard to understand why the Lord went there in the first place.
But, a man, willing to die for me, that should make me stop and consider, WHY?
Why does the man fight for his country, his family, his wife? Only love.
King James Version (KJV)
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
It was the Love of the Father, that sent the Son.
“But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.“
It was the blood of the Son, that brought us close to the Father.
“Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,”
It’s is the blood of the Son, that allows us to boldly, come to the Father, to stand before Him, Forgivin, Blameless, finding Mercy and Grace in our time of need.
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
It is the blood of the Son, our Testimony, and our love for Him, that gives us the victory.
Must we give up something dear to us to purchase this standing?
Yes. We must give ourselves, all of ourselves to Him.
