How to Get Rid of a Bloodstain

  One of the most effective ways of removing a bloodstain is to throw what ever is stained away! Just get rid of it and you don't have to bother with it again. Then there is the idea of never letting blood near anything that you don't want bloodstained. Many will simply ignore the bloodstain and pretend that it is not there.

  Most of us are not comfortable at the sight of blood, some of us are totally repulsed by it. It is funny to us when someone faints at the sight of blood. Blood is not a popular subject for an article.

  If you know me, by now you know that I am on the trail of a different thought. You are right.
  We as Christians look to the Cross of Calvary when we consider our eternal destiny.  We stand up for Jesus, when we are questioned about our faith. He died for us on the cross. He took our place on that cross. He paid for the sins of the whole world on that cross. We often ponder what those last hours was for him on that cross. We love sermons and lessons  concerning his seven utterances from that cross.  He suffered horribly!

  Unless we are drawn to consider other aspects of that event, we seldom think beyond that bowed head underneath that sign, "the King of the Jews!"

  There is a fountain filled with blood, drawn from Immanuel's veins, and sinners plunged beneath that flood, lose all their guilty stains." How long has it been since you have studied Exodus, Leviticus and Deuteronomy? Have you ever heard the verse, "Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission?"

  Are you aware that some mainline denominations have removed all references to blood from their hymnals?  Are you conscious that most of the modern Bible versions have substituted the word death for the word blood in critical places? Jesus with no blood atonement, is another Jesus. It is possible for a person to believe in Jesus, and still be in their sin. True, Jesus died on the cross. But, far more importantly, Jesus shed his precious blood for our sin. If Satan can get rid of the bloodstain, then He can render the message of Jesus powerless. There is power in the blood!

  I am not adequately prepared here, to delve into the intricate purpose of the books of Moses regarding the blood offerings and I certainly do not have enough room in this column. But my intention is to think about and cause my reader to think about how important the blood of Jesus is in the plan of redemption. I want the reader to become as conscious as I believe I am, that all the encroachments against the shed blood of Jesus should be noted and exposed as heresy.

  If you are interested to research this then you will have to look in the book of Leviticus first, it is a bloody book. God instructed Moses in a system of offerings that literally caused little creeks of blood flowing away from that tabernacle in the wilderness. All of those individual offerings pointed to the eternal effect of the blood of Jesus Christ. Countless sermons and Sunday School lessons have been built on those subjects. But, in Leviticus you will find one distinct sacrifice that was to be offered once a year for the sins of the people. We call it the day of atonement, by the will of God. Like the passover it singularly was necessary to be done exactly as God commanded in order for it to accomplish God's eternal purpose and picture.  That particular offering was necessary to purge the people of their sin for a year. Hebrews tells us that Jesus only had to do it once for all. Jesus shed his precious blood which if it is applied to the mercy seat of God, provides complete reconciliation between a Holy, righteous God and wicked, defiled sinners. Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
