The Blood of the Lamb

What are the peculiarities of the Blood of the Lamb?

1 John 1.7: "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin." 


Just like the Name of Jesus, The Blood of the Lamb is a great power that confers several indissociable and immutable characters. It is by the grace of God that we can know its fullness. 


Romans 3:24: "And they are freely justified by his grace, by the means of the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God hath purposed, by his blood, to be, for those who would believe propitiatory victim, to to show his justice.... "
The propitiatory word in Hebrew "Kaphar" is close to the verb "to cover": Jesus "covered" our sins with his blood, and God is now "propitious": favorable. He is the Lamb without blemish and without task, preconceived before the foundation of the world. The Lord is from eternity, the resource of God for the misery of man. The blood of Christ is the offering to cover the sins of the world.


Isaiah 53.5: "And by his stripes we are healed."

 

After his judgment, the flogging of Jesus was the beginning of deep bruising. The Roman whips were composed of thongs, at the end of which were attached ossicles and pieces of scrap. It would be irresponsible to minimize this horrible torment, tearing its flesh and causing blood to flow in unthinkable proportions. Sometimes that was enough to cause death. Jesus received 39 lashes, in the world we find 39 categories of diseases. The Lord by his bruises covers every strain of all these diseases.


Revelation 1.5: "And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth, to him that loveth us, who hath delivered us from our sins by his blood...."


The immorality of his executioners has no limit. The Roman soldiers found it very strange that a Jew coming from the country could pretend to be king. So they threw a purple robe on her shoulders and placed a staff in her hand to serve as a scepter. To complete their disguises, they needed a crown. Flexible branches covered with long spines (usually used to bundle firewood). They were braided to give them the shape of a crown, then it was pressed into his scalp, which bleed abundantly. Jesus The King of Kings took this crown of shame woven by Satan without complaint.


Hebrews 2:14: "Therefore, since the children participate in the blood and the flesh, he has also participated in it, so that by death he annihilates the one who has the power of death, that is, to say the devil...."

 
The characters of the blood of the Lamb are that the Lord has fully redeemed the elect by his Blood; his bruises and his humiliations. The statements of the Word on its characters are unique and of great wealth for all those who are covered by the grace of God:
- "The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin." 
- "Having been justified now by his blood." 
- In Jesus Christ, the beloved, "we have redemption through his blood, forgiveness of sins according to the riches of his grace." 
- "You have been redeemed ... by the precious blood of Christ."
- "The blood of Christ who, by the eternal Spirit, has offered himself to God without task, will purify ... your conscience from dead works."


1 John 1.7: "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin."


Conclusion: the blood shed is the life removed, it is death. By his blood; its bruises and humiliations, the Lord has destroyed the three curses of Satan: death; disease and poverty. Having all to answer, The Blood of the Lamb is the ONLY way to be propitious to God. Executing his righteousness, the Blood of the Lamb of God acts on the elect (s) and becomes the ransom propitiatory on our faults; our debts and our diseases. These are the virtues of the Blood of Christ: we are cleansed from all sin; justified and redeemed.


Hebrews 9:14: "How much more will the blood of Christ, who by an eternal spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify your conscience from dead works, that you may serve the living God?"

 
Quotes: "May his blood fall on us and on our children!" It will be with the cruelty and mockery of their brutal spirits that the people, the priests and the Pharisees howled this horrible phrase at the Lord's judgment. In their madness, they caused a terrible curse. It was accomplished 40 years later, when their children were massacred by the Roman legions. Titus gave the order to destroy all the city of Jerusalem except for the highest towers: Phasael, Hippicos and Mariamme. The last refugee fighters in the underground had committed suicide rather than surrender.

 
Romans 12.14: "Bless those who persecute you, bless and do not curse."
