BOUGHT WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS

THE BIBLE IS THE HANDBOOK FOR A CHRISTIAN. IT IS ALSO HOW TO DEVELOP A LOVE RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED MAN IN HIS IMAGE AND GAVE HIM RULE OVER THIS PLANET. HE GAVE HIM A HELPMATE. ADAM CALLED HER EVE. GOD CALLED THEM BOTH MAN. IN THE SCRIPTURES MAN MEANS MANKIND.


THIS WAS HIS FAMILY AND HE HAD A LOVING RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM. HE CAME EVERY DAY TO MEET WITH THEM TO SEE HOW THEIR DAY WENT.


THIS MAN AND WOMAN WERE TENDING THE GARDEN AND A FALLEN, DEMONIC BEING NAMED SATAN CAME TO THEM IN THE FORM OF A SNAKE AND SEDUCED THE WOMAN TO QUESTION GOD. THE MAN, ADAM, STOOD BY AND LET IT HAPPEN. THAT TRUTH CAN BE UNDERSTOOD BY READING GENESIS CHAPTERS 1-3. A CURSE CAME UPON THE ENTIRE PLANET INCLUDING UPON MANKIND.


WHEN THIS HAPPENED, GOD SET ABOUT TO GET HIS CREATION BACK. IT REQUIRED BLOOD SACRIFICES BECAUSE THE LIFE OF THE FLESH IS IN THE BLOOD. GOD SACRIFICED AN ANIMAL, COVERED ADAM AND EVE AND SENT THEM FORTH.


GOD THEN SET ABOUT TO FIND A MAN WHO WOULD TRUST HIM. HE FOUND ONE NAMED ABRAM AND HE MADE A BLOOD COVENANT WITH THIS MAN UNTIL SUCH A TIME AS HE, HIMSELF, COULD COME TO REDEEM MANKIND WITH HIS VERY OWN BLOOD.


I KNOW THAT THERE IS A LOT OF TEACHING AND NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT ALL THIS MEANS, BUT THE CRUX OF THE SITUATION IS THIS. GOD CAME IN THE FLESH (JOHN 1:14). HE CAME TO BUY OUR PARDON AND GIVE US OPPORTUNITY TO BE RESTORED TO A RIGHT RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR FATHER. HE SHED HIS BLOOD FOR US, DIED FOR OUR SIN ON THE CROSS, WENT TO HELL TO TAKE OUR PUNISHMENT. HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD IN THREE DAYS AND IS SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER IN HEAVEN. HE GIVES US THE INVITATION OF COMING UP AND BEING SEATED IN HIM.


HE HAS MADE US THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD BY HIS SACRIFICE WHEN WE RECEIVE HIM AS LORD. THIS LITTLE WRITING IS TO GIVE ACCOUNT OF WHAT HIS BLOOD SHED DID FOR US IN REDEEMING US FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW. THE CURSE WAS FOR SIN, SICKNESS AND POVERTY. HE HAS REDEEMED US FROM ALL OF IT. (GALATIANS 3:13)


ISAIAH 53:3-5 W AS PROPHETIC OF WHAT THE LORD WOULD DO WHEN HE CAME. HE WENT ABOUT DOING GOOD HEALING ALL WHO WERE OPPRESSED OF THE DEVIL. WHEN THE TIME CAME FOR HIM TO GO TO THE CROSS, HE LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR US.


HE BLED IN 7 PLACES TO REDEEM US FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW . . . WE ARE IN

THIS WORLD, BUT NOT OF IT. HE WAS MADE TO BE SIN FOR US AS A SUBSTITUTE, AND GAVE US NEW LIFE. THE BLOOD WAS SHED:


1. THORNS ON HIS HEAD---CURSE OFF OUR LAND . . . OUR FINANCES, BUSINESSES


2. SWEAT BLOOD THROUGH HIS POURS . . . AGONY . . . FEAR . . . THY WILL BE DONE . . . BOUGHT BACK OUR RIGHT TO CHOOSE.


3. PULLED OFF HIS BEARD .HE DID NOT LOOK HUMAN AT THE END OF THE 3 HOURS

OF DARKNESS.--NOT IDENTIFIABLE . . . LOST HIS IDENTITY TO GIVE YOU IDENTITY . . . YOU ARE VALUABLE . . . YOU ARE HIS VERY OWN.


4. STRIPES ON HIS BACK TO HEAL-- PAY THE PENALTY FOR ALL SICKNESS, DISEASE, INFIRMITY. HE IS THE SAME TODAY, YESTERDAY AND FOREVER. HE STILL HEALS AND DOES MIRACLES. IF YOU CAN BELIEVE, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.


5. HANDS . . . NAILED . . . COULDN'T MOVE THEM . . . GAVE YOU FREEDOM OF HANDS

THAT ANYTHING YOU SET YOUR HAND TO WILL PROSPER (PSALM 1) AND TO LIFT

THEM IN HONOR AND PRAISE, WHICH SO MANY IN THE BODY DO NOT OFFER TO HIM BECAUSE OF NOT KNOWING WHAT A PRIVILEGE TO HONOR HIM.


6. FEET NAILED. COULDN'T GO WHERE HE WANTED . . . ENSLAVED . . . YOU HAVE LIBERTY TO WALK WHEN AND WHERE YOU WANT BECAUSE OF HIS SUBSTITUTE.

YOUR WALK IS YOUR LIFESTYLE. WALKING IN HIS WAYS . . . THE WORLD'S WAYS . . . THE DEVIL'S WAYS . . . YOUR WAYS...YOU CHOOSE. BEFORE HE CAME WE WERE ENSLAVED AND HAD TO SERVE THE DEVIL . . . THE JEWISH PEOPLE HAD LAWS WRITTEN IN THE OLD TESTAMENT. BUT THEY COULD KEEP THEM. SO HE CAME AS THE SON OF MAN. HE WALKED IT SUCCESSFULLY WITH NO SIN. HE WAS MADE TO BE SIN FOR US. NOW PRAISE GOD, WE CAN LEARN HIS WAYS AND WALK IN THE PATHS AND PURPOSE HE HAS FOR OUR LIVES AND THE DEVIL HAS NO SAY SO . . . WE DO NOT BELONG TO HIM IF WE BELONG TO JESUS.


7. HE WAS PIERCED IN THE SIDE. THE BLOOD AND WATER POURED OUT. I BELIEVE WATER SYMBOLIC OF THE MIGHTY HOLY SPIRIT. ALSO SYMBOLIC OF THE FACT, WOMAN WAS TAKEN FROM THE SIDE OF MAN FOR UNITY AND COVENANT PARTNERS. WE ARE TAKEN FROM HIS SIDE AS THE BRIDE OF CHRIST, THE GLORIOUS JOINT HEIRS WITH JESUS.


IF YOU ARE READING THIS AND DO NOT KNOW HIM, ASK HIM INTO YOUR HEART TO BE YOUR LORD AND HE WILL COME IN. DO NOT LET IT STOP THERE HOWEVER. GET INTO A GOOD BIBLE TEACHING CHURCH. READ YOUR BIBLE DAILY AND ASK HIM TO REVEAL TO YOU WHAT YOU NEED FOR THAT DAY. THEN APPLY TO YOUR LIFE WHAT HE SAYS. YOU WILL HAVE A WONDERFUL ADVENTURE IN FAITH AS YOU SERVE HIM AND WAIT FOR HIS COMING.


IF YOU ALREADY KNOW HIM, STIR UP HIS SPIRIT WITHIN YOU AND HAVE A GLORIOUS TIME LEARNING AND GROWING IN THE LOVE OF GOD FOR HE LOVES YOU UNCONDITIONALLY.
