The Blood of the Lamb Marks Us
"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 sin, for it is the blood that makes the atonement for the soul" (Leviticus 17:11).
My Old Covenant was a foreshadowing of the new. Sin is detestable to Me, but I made a way for reconciliation--through the life blood. I was not as interested in the offering of the animal, but in the heart attitude that made the offering. The blood of rams and bulls pointed towards the power of My Son's blood. It would wipe away the need to perform animal sacrifices, and totally wash away your sin.
His blood covered and continues to cover all the sin that was, is and is to come. It is for this reason all true sons and daughters of Mine must be cleansed in the blood of the sacrificial lamb, Jesus Christ. This is not an outmoded ritual, but life itself. My ways are higher than yours, and My plans appear as foolish to man. It is for this very reason I have made it so. You cannot do anything for yourself but accept the provision I have made for you.
I allowed My Son to die on a cross for you because of my deep love for humanity, even though you are full of sin. I am love and the author of it. The world has perverted and misunderstood My love. They try to make believers appear superstitious and outdated, but they are the very ones who create their own gods. The blood of the cross separates the sheep from the goats and marks you as My own.
