BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST BIBLE STUDY
Christianity Oasis Ministry has provided you with this Christian Walk study. How does the Blood of Jesus Christ save us? We will be looking into that as well as all aspects of the Christian Walk. This SON-derful study will reveal truth which will bring forth understanding and then peace within. Let's proceed, shall we?
BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST
So . . . What is the TRUTH of this matter?
Here is TRUTH ...
Jesus' Blood saves and is an important aspect in our day to day lives.
1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have
fellowship one with another, and the
of Jesus Christ, His Beloved Son
cleanseth us from all sin.
Blood offering rituals in the Bible led up to the Blood of Jesus being required to have us forgiven as to be able to save our souls.
Did you know that blood offerings have always been used to make atonement for sins in the Bible from the very beginning? Jesus was sacrificed for OUR sins.
But ... WHY?
It is a COVENANT issue.
Let us seek the TRUTH within the Bible ...
For the life of the flesh is in the
and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for
your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for
The story goes all
the way back to the Israelitesí exodus from Egypt, and a celebration
The Hebrews were enslaved in Egypt for over 400
years and the Lord saw their affliction and heard the cries of His
people, so He sent Moses to bring the children of Israel out of Egypt
And the LORD said, I have
surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and
have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know
their sorrows; And I am come down to deliver them out of the
hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land
unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and
honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and
the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the
Jebusites. Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of
Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression
wherewith the Egyptians oppress them. Come now therefore, and I
will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my
people the children of Israel out of Egypt.
Pharaoh, the ruler of Egypt, didnít want to let the
people of Israel go, so God sent plagues upon Egypt, but Pharaoh was
stubborn and wouldnít heed Godís commandment to free them. The tenth
and last plague that the Lord brought upon Egypt in those days, was
that every firstborn of Egypt, both man and beast, would die.
In order to save His chosen people alive while the
destroyer went through Egypt, the children of Israel were to bring in
an unblemished lamb on the 10th day of the 1st
month of the Jewish calendar and keep this lamb for 4 days. Then on
the 14th day of the first month, the Israelites were to
kill their lamb and place the
blood of the lamb on their
homes so that death (the destroyer) would pass over them.
Later, Moses would sprinkle the people
with blood to bring for the Covenant between God and the
And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and
said, Behold the
blood of the covenant,
which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words.
To celebrate their freedom, they were told to do
this every year after that AS IT WOULD BE A
and the celebration was called Passover.
This event was a shadow of an
event to come Ö The death of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or
in respect of an holy day,
or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days:
Which are a shadow of things to come;
but the body is of Christ.
See the Feast Shadow study to better
understand the reference to Passover being a shadow of events to
But be sure to return to this study.
Soon after Godís people were free and journeying
through the wilderness on their way to the Promised Land, the Old
Testament was established with the children of Israel.
What is a testament and how is it established? Well,
just like with a will and testament, it is a covenant that is put into
effect when the testator dies Ö or with the shedding of
of the old covenant came from sacrifices. The people brought
sacrifices to the priest, and Moses
the sacrifices on the people to cleanse them of their sins. After the
original covenant was made, different sacrifices were made daily,
weekly, monthly and yearly.
By and by, mankind turned away from the laws of God,
so much so, that all the sacrificing in the world wouldnít cleanse
away the sin, so God sent Jesus, who through the shedding of His
brought in the New Testament. The new covenant is this:
No more sacrifices are needed, but simply by
believing in Jesus life, death and resurrection, and that He is the
Son of God, we need only repent and our sins are forgiven.
(cleansed) by the
Just as the SHADOW reflected, the sacrifice of
the blood of Jesus Christ
happened during the feast of Passover. Jesus, known as the Lamb of God, without
blemish (sin), came into Jerusalem on the 10th day of the 1st
month and was with the people for 4 days. He was killed by the choice
of His own people on the 14th day of the first month, just
as the Jewish people were celebrating the Passover. We are saved by
blood of the Lamb.
PARTAKING OF THE
BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST
How does one become sinless to be worthy of God Ö
Because it is written ... We are all sinners?
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
BUT ... We know that whoever is born of God doesnít
1 John 5:18-19
We know that whosoever is born
of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth
himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. And we know that
we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
Itís not we
that sin but the sinful nature within us. Thatís why we feel bad after
and repent. Paul explains it best ...
For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold
under sin. For that which
I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I
hate, that do I. If then I
do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
Now then it is no
more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
For I know that in me
(that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing:
for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good
I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I
would not, that I do.
Now if I do that I would not, it
is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with
me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
But I see another law in
my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me
into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
O wretched man that I am! who shall
deliver me from the body of this
death? I thank God through
Jesus Christ our Lord. So
then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the
flesh the law of sin.
We were BORN INTO the sin of Adam and Eve (it's in our

But be sure to return to this study.
So, the only way to become worthy of our Father, is
to become one with Jesus, because Heís the only one who is sinless,
and we do this by partaking of His
Before we go into detail of how to partake of the
of Jesus, thereís another interesting
thing that we should know about Him.
1 John 5:6
This is He that came by
even Jesus Christ; not by
water only, but by
This symbolizes that Jesus came in the flesh and
Awesome huh? But what of the WATER?
Read this from Johnís account of when Jesus was taken down
from the cross:
But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced His
side, and forthwith (at once) came there out
It only makes sense that Jesus came by
when he took human form as to die for our sins.
And God said, Let US make
man in OUR image, after OUR likeness.
Letís investigate this.
Note that the Bible says US and
when God is talking. Thatís because OUR and US
is God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The TRINITY ... THREE IN ONE.
Sooooo, since we (as humans) were made in His image, we also have
three parts but are one.
See the Trinity Study to learn more of this truth.
But be sure to return to this study.
The Bible is clear that we are created in
So we too were created as a trinity of
1 John 5:7-8
For there are three that bear record in Heaven, the Father, the Word (Jesus),
and the Holy Ghost: and these THREE ARE ONE. And there are three that bear witness IN EARTH, the Spirit, and the
water, and the
and these THREE AGREE IN ONE.
Therefore we, as humans, are made of three parts or
The SPIRIT, WATER, AND
The SPIRIT is the spirit that God assigns each soul
that is born and that we humans surrender when we die (you give up the
ghost or spirit).
Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was:
and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
The WATER is obviously the body
since it is made up of mostly
Remember that John made it clear that the WATER represents that Jesus came in the FLESH.

This is He that came by

only, but by

As it is written ... Abel's
(his soul) cried out
And he said, What hast thou
done? The voice of thy
brother's BLOOD crieth unto me from the ground.
Weíre all pretty familiar with the body
of Jesus, from the story of the Last
Supper, but letís look a little deeper into this
that John is talking about. In Johnís Gospel thereís a story about a
woman from Samaria. Jesus told her that He is the
and that whoever drinks of the
water that He gives will
never thirst again, but the
water that He shall give
will be a well of water
springing up into everlasting life
But whosoever drinketh of the water
that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall
give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting
Then, while teaching at Capernaum, He told the
Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye
eat the flesh
of the Son of man, and drink His
blood, ye have no life in you.
Whoso eateth my flesh, and
drinketh my blood, hath eternal life;
and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed,
and my blood is drink indeed. He
that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in
At the Last Supper Jesus confirmed this again when
He gave the Apostles the cup of wine, (known as the cup of eternal
salvation) and said:
For this is my
of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of
Now, at the Last Supper, Jesus said to eat and drink
in His memory. Now, each time when we eat and drink, we have an
opportunity to remember that Jesusí
was shed for us, and that we continually renew His life in us.
I ask you, is
it the consecrating of bread and wine that removes your sins, or was
it the act of Jesus dying on the cross, that takes away the sins of
the world, once for all?
Weíve also learned that we need forgiveness
regularly, not once a week or once a month, so why wouldnít Jesus
choose the Last Supper ... a meal Ö something that we partake of
daily . . . regularly, to use as the perfect occasion to
remind us that He died for us and to confess our sins and be forgiven
And what about penance? Is it OUR works that bring
forgiveness? Didnít Jesus already pay the price? To be repentant comes
from your heart and our Lord forgives us. To suggest that in order to
be forgiven, one must recite a specific prayer, do some community
service or anything of that nature ... is like saying that YOU are in
some way working off your sins, or that YOU somehow have a hand in the
forgiveness process and all in all ... itís saying that what Jesus
did, dying on the cross for you, wasnít enough and that YOUR works
will be the healing factor. TRUTH is ... It is much more SPIRITUAL
than all that. Jesus paid our price and that price is ETERNAL.
Paul warns what will happen if we donít respect the
blood of Jesus:
For if we sin willfully after that we have received
the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for
sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery
indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised
Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how
much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who
hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the
of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and
hath done despite unto the Spirit of Grace?
We have redemption by
the blood of Jesus.

I will close this study by sharing something with
you that the Apostle Paul said ...
Now the God of Peace, that brought again from the
dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the
blood of the
covenant, make you perfect in
every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well
pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever

forgiveness of our loving, merciful Father ...

The blood of Jesus is more powerful
than anything and the blood of Jesus sets you free.
