The Purpose of the blood of Jesus

The main purpose of the blood of Jesus is to reconcile us with God and to bring us closer to Him.

Ever since sin entered the world, all creation rebelled against God. As a result, we became enemies of God from birth. 

David acknowledged this by saying:

Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. –Psalm 51:5 KJV

again it’s written:

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. –1 John 1:8 KJV 

God’s holiness and justice demand that sin never goes unpunished and that is still accurate till this day. Moreover, the only punishment for sin is (eternal) death (ref. Romans 6:23).

Nevertheless, God was gracious toward us by allowing His Son Jesus Christ to pay the sentence of our sins by shedding His blood on the cross.

To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.  In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace. –Ephesians 1:6-7 KJV

According to the holy scriptures (ref. Leviticus 17:14), the source of life of all flesh is the blood.

The blood of Jesus is the divine blood used as the perfect offering to God for redemption to those who shall humble themselves and believe in Christ. 

But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. –Ephesians 2:13 KJV

The Blood Has Power To:

Reconcile us:

Here’s how Apostle Paul defines the death of Jesus Christ: 

For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh –Romans 8:3 KJV

He stated again:

But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. –1 Corinthians 2:7-8 KJV

By this, we understand that God brought us nearer that we may cease from living a sinful life.

Wash away our sins:

The blood of Jesus does not only have the power to forgive our sinful ways, but also to exterminate the power it has over us. 

How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? –Hebrews 9:14 KJV

God gave us victory over sin through the blood of Jesus Christ.

Do you now see that the blood of Christ was offered up to eliminate the former morals and that we may be transformed to Godliness? For unless we renounce the former life, we cause the grace of God to be vain.

Overcome The Enemy:

We overcome satan and his schemes by invoking the blood of Jesus in faith.

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. –Revelation 12:11 KJV

The Victory That’s In The Blood 

Apostle Paul, who also was known as Saul at first persecuted the church of God by injuring men and woman and putting them in prison. (ref. Acts 8:3)

Above all, he stated the following:

but by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. – 1 Corinthians 15:10 KJV.

The former ways of Paul were exterminated by the power of redemption that is the blood of Jesus.

Having said that, the only way that was achieved, was by Paul acknowledging that there’s no man that is good but God and realized the need for redemption in his life.

I do not want us to take these things lightly, but as it’s written: “Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling” (Psalm 2:11).

For we are forewarned of the things that are to come in the Holy Scriptures:

He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. –Hebrews 10:28-29 KJV.
