God’s Eternal Plan 
The Saving Blood of Christ
Christ gives His intention for the shedding of His Blood:
“For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shedfor many for the remission of sins.” Matt. 26:28; See alsoCol. 1:14; Rev. 1:5; 1 John 1:7)By Dr. Terry W. Preslar Medical science has given to the blood a mighty place; the most vital indicators of physical health can be found in the blood. But, God gave the blood a powerful place far back in the dawn of time. To blood isascribed in Scripture the mysterious sacredness which belongs to life, and God reserved it to himself whenallowing man the dominion over and the use of the lower animals for food. Thus reserved, it acquires adouble power: (1) that of sacrificial atonement; and (2) that of becoming a curse when wantonly shed, unlessduly accounted for. (“But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.” Gen. 9:4;Lev. 7:26; 17:11-13). The message of the “Saving Power of the Blood of Christ” is the foundational truth behind the Theology of Christ. The message of the Gospel of the Saving Blood of Christ is defined in manyterms. The Blood has been so diluted and spread thin that the Gospel message is made to cover almost every“message” of the modern pulpit. Yet, the substance of the Gospel (the Blood) is in danger of being forgotten.Let us not overlook the facts when delimiting the message of our pulpits.
1- The most exciting message is – 
 In a dull world of religion with little true spirituality – 
The Healing thesick & raising the dead
(“And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.”Matt.10:1).
2- The most urgent message is – 
 As time tics on and our expiring chronology is enchanted with urgency – 
The 2nd Coming of Christ
(“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with thevoice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:” 1 Thes. 4:16).
3- The most practical message is – 
While economic concerns baffle the most wise among us – 
The Tithe
(“Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes andofferings.” Mal. 3:8).
4- The most worshipful message is – 
 Even though the emptiness of “self-worship’ comes clear as thebroken race moves from object to futile object – 
The Glory of God
(“Whom having not seen, ye love;in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:”1 Peter 1:8).
5- The most encouraging message is – 
 As a depressed world waits for a message to move them – 
The Hopeof Heaven
(“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with theglory which shall be revealed in us.” Rom. 8:18-27).
6- The most needed message is – 
Out of all others no message is more sought than that of personal

 Redemption – 
The Salvation of Sinners Through the Blood of Christ
(“In whom we have redemptionthrough his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:” Col. 1:14)In all passages which speak of the blood we must look for the MESSAGE of the blood, as themanifestation of God’s Redemption. Cain substituted for it, Pharaoh hated it, Moses practiced it, Godinstituted it, JESUS shed it, and you must accept it to go to Heaven or without it, go to Hell.In the Greek N.T. The word for “Blood” is “Haima” (Strong’s #129) and it is used 99 times. Forty sixof these times it regards the Blood of Christ. Blood is:
the Flood of Victory
 Depravity’s Defeat 
theFount of Joy
 Inability’s Despair 
And The Fort of Refuge
our Storm’s Distress
.The life of man is in the blood (Lev.17:11, 14). God’s law demands death AND the shedding of bloodfor transgression (Lev.17:11; Ezek.18:4; Rom.6:23; Heb.9:22). The O.T. sacrifices depicted how God’s Son,Jesus Christ, would pay the price for sin (Heb. 9-10; 1 Peter 1:18-19). Jesus’ death alone could not save us;His blood was required. In Rom.5:9-10 we see the two together. Verse 9 says we are justified “by his blood,”and v. 10 says we are reconciled “by his death.”
What Jesus’ blood does for the believer at the time of redemption:
 1- Justifies (Rom. 5:9)2- unifies (1 Cor. 10:16)3- provides eternal redemption and forgiveness (Eph. 1:7; 1 Peter 1:18-19; Heb. 9:12)4- brings us near to God (Eph. 2:13)5- grants peace (Col. 1:20)6- purges our conscience (Heb. 9:14)7- grants access into God’s presence (Heb. 10:19)8- sanctifies (Heb. 13:12)9- cleanses from all sin (1 John 1:7)10- frees from sins (Rev. 1:5)11- gives victory over Satan (Rev. 12:11).
I- The plan of God fulfilled
(Heb. 9:11-14) (not “just any Blood” But by “HIS own Blood” See 1 Peter 1:18-19)
II- The object of Blood
(Rom.5:9) Redemption
III- The value of Blood
(1 Peter 1:18-19)
IV- The result of Blood
(1 John 1:7) (2 Cor.5:17)
The BLOOD Is...God’s Way
On God’s Day
Because of God’s Say
Those who deny the Blood of the LAMB, are, by their actions, Bible deniers. All Blood deniers areChrist deniers and that makes them God deniers.
