The Precious Blood of Jesus

 

  1. Political Correctness has invaded our culture in the US

    1. The worldly  philosophy behind political correctness is acceptance and tolerance

    2. The true intent behind political correctness and tolerance is an attempt at RATIONALIZING SIN

    3. RATIONALIZING SIN hardens the heart moving the individual deeper in sin

    4. We may try to rationalize our sin however what is right and what is wrong is not something we can change

    5. This same attitude has infiltrated the church of Jesus Christ

  2. Jesus did not come preaching politics or tolerance He preached the Kingdom of God and repentance

    Repentance = to personally turn from, sin not tolerate and accept

    1. Being politically correct is certainly spiritually wrong

    2. Churches no longer talk about sin, are afraid to talk about hell or the BLOOD SACRIFICE of Jesus Christ.  Don’t encourage people to bring their bibles to church, many do not have altar calls

    3. It is the Love of Jesus that wins and saves

    4. SIN is a terrible reality that calls for a terrible cure

    5. The BLOOD SACRIFICE of Jesus Christ is a truth that is foundational to our faith.  (it is nonnegotiable either you accept it or you reject Christianity altogether)

 

  1. The Cost of freedom has always been blood

    1. The Old Covenant Worshipper

    2. Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood  and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul

    3. Blood was reserved for a holy purpose

    4. The animal’s blood being sprinkled on the altar symbolized the animal’s life being given to God instead of the sinner’s life to appease the wrath of God

    5. The burning of the animal’s flesh on the altar completed the sacrifice as a result the worshipper was symbolically covered/atoned for from the wrath of God

    6. Hebrews 10:1 for the law having a SHADOW of the good things to come and NOT the very image of the things can never with these same sacrifices which they offer continually year by year make those who approach perfect

    7. The purpose of the law:

      1. The law is a revelation of God’s righteous character

      2. The law exposes sin

      3. The law cannot save anyone

 

  1. The New Covenant Worshipper

    1. Matthew 26:28 For this is My blood of the new testament/covenant which is shed for many for the remission of sins

    2. What can wash away my sin nothing but the blood of Jesus What can make me whole again nothing but the blood of Jesus Oh precious is the flow that makes me white as snow no other fount I know nothing but the blood of Jesus

    3. One who writes a will or a testament is referred to as a testator

    4. A will does not go into effect until the death of the testator

    5. Through His death we enter into a covenant relationship with God The Father

    6. Covenant Relationship: The Lord takes 100% of the responsibility in His covenant relationship with you. It is an unbreakable bond.  You can be secure in your relationship with the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

    7. Old Covenant ATONEMENT = to cover over

    8. New Covenant JUSTIFIED = like we have never sinned declared innocent

    9. The New Covenant is better than the old

 

  1. Since the Price has been paid we have freedom from sin in Jesus
