Before Sin and After
Before sin entered the world, there was no death. Blood was not shed. As soon as the first man sinned, blood was shed, as God killed an animal and covered them with its skin, as a symbol that our sins remove the covering of the righteous glory of God, leaving us shameful and bare, and that we require the shedding of blood to cover us once again.
Today we take a look at the only shed blood which can purchase your forgiveness, your deliverance, your pardon, your peace, and your healing.

What About the Blood?
Do you realize what the blood of Jesus means to you? It means eternal forgiveness for your sins; it means payment of a debt you could never pay; it means pardon from an eternal death sentence; it means glorious righteousness when even your own best effort is as filthy rags.
Do you understand what the blood of Jesus has done for you? It has bought your freedom from a lifetime of slavery to sin; it has broken the shakles of addiction and torment that bound you within; it has infused your spirit, dead in trespasses and sins, with everlasting life; and it has raised you up from an eternal grave and has given you a future and a hope that will never end!
In Hebrews 9:22, we read this: "According to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission."
The greek word for remission, aphesis (ah' fe sees), means this:
- Release from bondage or imprisonment.
- Forgiveness or pardon, of sins (letting them go as if they had never been committed), remission of the penalty.
- Remission, forgiveness, deliverance, liberty.
What shed blood can bring us release from bondage or imprisonment? What shed blood can bring us forgiveness, pardon of sins as if they had never been committed, remission of the penalty of those sins? What shed blood can bring us remission, forgiveness, deliverance, and liberty?
The blood of animals cannot save you. The blood of men cannot save you. Even the blood of righteous saints cannot save you.
It is only the blood of Jesus Christ that can release you from your bondage and imprisonment.
It is only the blood of Jesus that can bring you forgiveness and pardon from your sins as if you had never committed them.
It is only the blood of Jesus that can pardon you from the penalty of those sins.
And it is only the blood of Jesus that can bring you remission, forgiveness, deliverance, and liberty.
Are you covered with the blood of the Lamb?
