For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a young cow, sprinkling those who are defiled, sanctify for the purification of the flesh, how much more will the blood of the Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse our consciences from dead works to serve the living God? Hebrews 9:13-14
The shedding of the blood of goats and bulls, and the ashes of a young cow being sprinkled on those who were ceremonially unclean, were the rituals of the Old-Covenant, and only made them outwardly clean.
But ETERNAL REDEMPTION through the act of the New-Covenant, the FINAL, ULTIMATE SACRIFICE, of the Lord Jesus Christ, who offered Himself to God, a PERFECT, UNBLEMISHED LAMB, who SHED His own blood for the ETERNAL REDEMPTINON of ALL mankind, replaced the Old-Covenant, which is the “dead works.”
Because the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, was a MORE ACCEPTABLE, PERFECT SACRIFICE, which cleanses us from ALL our sins, past, present and future with just that one act of redemption. It SHOULD influence the way we SERVE the Living God. We do not have to offer a blood sacrifice, daily, which could NOT take away our sins anyway, because Jesus is the FINAL, ULTIMATE SACRIFICE for the ETERNAL REDEMPTION of mankind. It is a ONCE for ALL time act that changes the destiny of the world.
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you do NOT possess this act of ETERNAL REDEMPTION, and your soul is LOST, and you are headed for an ETERNITY in a place called HELL. A place that is VOID of ANYTHING GOOD, a place that will give you ETERNAL pain, torture, agony and despair. God is giving you the opportunity NOW to turn away from that destination and to come to Him with a TRULY REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and experience ETERNAL REDEMPTION from Father God. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
