The scripture for today, September 21 (9/21), is Hebrews 9:21f as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“In the same way, he [Moses] sprinkled with the blood both the tabernacle and everything used in its ceremonies. In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness.”
Long ago in the Garden of Eden, God told Adam and Eve, the day they sinned they would die. And it happened. The day they sinned their souls died. Death means separation. In a physical sense, we are separated from people living on earth. In a spiritual sense, we are separated from God in heaven. God is life, and cannot dwell with death. It is not in his nature. Neither can he dwell with sin. That, too, is not in his nature.
Death is Satan’s nature, so the souls of mankind began to dwell with Satan. He lured us into his trap and we gave in to his temptations. He held us ransom. It was a blood ransom. God was able to temporarily appease Satan by commanding people to spill the blood of animals. But animal blood was not enough for Satan. He demanded God’s blood.
God loves us so very, very much, he sent his Words to earth, taking on flesh and blood (John 1:1,14). Then he bought us from Satan with his own blood (Acts 20:28).
What a God we have! What incomprehensible love! Let us fall at his feet in the awe of silence and worship.
WAS JESUS GOD? (WHY EVIL?) takes simple steps from the Garden of Eden to the Garden of Gethsemane to show Jesus was God’s Word materialized. then it moves beyond all that to talk about the glories of our next life ~ our permanent life ~ and heaven. The entire book is centered around John 1:1, 14: “In the beginning was the Word. The Word was with God. The Word was God…And the Word took on flesh and dwealt among us.” To BUY NOW, click a book cover or paste this: https://amzn.to/2V9FfUB
