It Is The Blood Of Jesus That Washes Away Our Sins

1st Peter 1:18-21,“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.”

If you are truly born-again dear friend, then your sins have been forever washed away by the precious blood of the Lamb of God. Pastor Dwight Moody said it well:
“It is the blood that must cover our sins. I beg of you, do not let the world move you on this point. Let it go on mocking and making light of the precious blood of the Son of God. It is our only refuge, our only hope. We cannot cover sin by any good deeds of our own.” —Pastor Dwight L. Moody (1837-1899)

I cherish the old Gospel hymn authored in 1899 by Lewis E. Jones, “Power In The Blood”...
Would you be free from the burden of sin?
There’s pow’r in the blood, pow’r in the blood;
Would you o’er evil a victory win?
There’s wonderful pow’r in the blood.
There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’r
In the blood of the Lamb;
There is pow’r, pow’r, wonder-working pow’r...
From the innocent animal that God killed to provide clothing for Adam and Eve after they sinned, to the saints whose robes are washed pure in the blood of the Lamb of God in Revelation 7:14—the main theme from cover to cover throughout the inspired Word of God is THE BLOOD OF JESUS!!!

It wasn't enough during the Old Testament Passover (the final of ten plagues), when the death angel of the Lord came upon all of Egypt, taking the lives of all the firstborn of humans and animals alike, if the blood of a lamb had only been slain and left to soak into the ground. The blood had to be applied! Read for yourself what saith the Scripture in Exodus 12:13, “And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.” God required that the lamb's blood be applied.

Not only did the lamb's shed blood need to be applied, but it had to be applied to the correct place.
Exodus 12:22-23, “And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning. For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.”
Dear friend, it wasn't enough for Jesus to die on the cross of Calvary to wash away our sins, His blood had to be applied. The Bible teaches that Jesus' blood was applied to the Mercy Seat in Heaven (Hebrews 9:12), in the presence of the Father (Hebrews 9:22-24). Jesus' sprinkled His precious blood upon the heavenly Mercy Seat (Hebrews 12:24). Hebrews 9:12, “Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.”

One of the deadliest preachers of our generation is Dr. John MacArthur in California, who boldly denies the necessity and power of Jesus' blood. According to Mr. MacArthur, which you can verify in his The MacArthur Bible Commentary, for Hebrews chapter 9, he says that the word "blood" in Hebrews 9:12 (and all other verses too) should have been translated "death" instead. No, if God meant death then He would have said death, but He used the word "blood." John MacArthur is a theological liar!!! Dr. MacArthur is an unsaved infidel, a false prophet on the blood of Christ.

Neo-evangelical churches nowadays have been flooded with a bloodless Gospel. We hear unbiblical teachings to turn away from our sinful ways, follow Jesus as "Lord" no matter what the cost, and to surrender all to Christ to get to Heaven. But where is the blood of the crucified One? Where is the blood of the Lamb? The blood of Jesus had to be applied to the heavenly Mercy Seat, in order for God to offer humanity eternal life as a free gift. The right price had to be paid for our sins, and in the right place. That right price is the precious blood of Jesus; and the right place is the heavenly Mercy Seat. Amen and amen.
