The scripture for today, September 14 (9/14), is Hebrews 9:14f as found in the New Testament of the Bible.
“How much more then will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts [sins] that lead to death so that we may serve the living God! For this reason, Christ is the mediator of a new covenant [testament] that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance ~ now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant [testament].”
This is a very interesting passage. Just previous to this, the author was talking about the blood of bulls and goats being sacrificed for sins under the old Law of Moses [Testament]. But now that the Son of God, the Lamb of God, had been sacrificed for our sins, we no longer need any more blood sacrifices.
Further, Jesus’ sacrifice was retroactive! It reached back to the faithful who lived under the first/old covenant [Testament] and set them free from punishment for their sins too.
Aren’t you glad God did away with the old Law of Moses with all its 600+ rules and regulations, and its requirement for animal blood sacrifices? Aren’t you overjoyed that he brought us a law of grace? What a God! What a Savior! Jesus did all this to save us from hell.
Have a day of deep gratitude.
THEY MET JESUS: PROMISE KEEPER: Walk with Jesus his last month on earth. Watch him fight to stay strong so, when the time came, he would be able to fight for us, wrestle us from the claws of Satan, and set us free. Blood ransom is what Satan demanded and blood ransom is what he got. Jesus came to earth for that purpose and he kept his promise.
