Dear Fellow Believers in Christ, (The Blood of Jesus has Opened Up 100% Grace and Becomes Sight in the Spirit for Us)
Our Heavenly Father desires Spirit birthed sons with His own Son placed in them for life, wisdom, righteousness, holiness, and redemptiion. If that is My Father's eternal plan, why would I consider being or doing anything aside from letting Christ live in me as me to be and do the Father's perfect will? Why is it so important to the Father, that it be His Son as the one living in us as us? Certainly Jesus is the Light of the world. How has the blood of Christ become the light and sight for us in the Spirit? How does the blood of Jesus bring forgiveness on sin, sins, and tresspasses? How did the blood of Jesus obtain an eternal redemption for us to the Father? How does the blood of Jesus give us boldness to enter into the holiest with our Father? Why is it important to know that our Father sees His sons pure and holy through the blood of Jesus? . . . Father, may the Holy Spirit reveal the fullness of Your Son and the awesome grace that has been opened up for us to see through His sacrifice and the precious blood of Jesus shed for us.
THE BLOOD OF JESUS
by Dwight Davis
"For it once then pleased the Father that in Him should all the fullness once then indwell, and by Him to once then reconcile all things to Himself, by Him having once then made peace through the blood of His cross, whether the things upon the earth or the things in the heavens, and your, once ever being already completely alienated and enemies through your mind by the evil works, yet now He has once then reconciled in the body of His flesh through death to once then present you holy, and unblamable, and an impeachable witness in His sight –" (Col. 1:19-22, Expanded Greek Translation – EGT)
First, The Blood of Jesus is Final and Eternal Sacrifice for Sin and Sins
Our Heavenly Father desired to have a relationship with Spirit birthed sons. Out Father foreknew that Satan would disobey and rebel. Our Father foreknew that Satan would deceive Adam to disobey and commit sin, and receive Satan’s sin nature and spread it to all mankind (Rom. 5:12). Our Father ordained a blood sacrificial system of bulls and goats for temporal remission or pushing back of sins and trespasses. All were types and shadows of Christ, our Passover, who was sacrificed for us (I Cor. 5:7). Christ "has appeared once at the end of the ages, to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself" (Hebr. 9:26). "Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many" (Hebr. 9:28). Christ "became the author of eternal salvation" (Hebr. 5:9). The blood of Jesus is the final and eternal sacrifice.
Second, The Blood of Jesus Purchased the Father’s Forgiveness of Sins
Paul declared, that in Christ, "we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace" (Eph. 1:7). The Holy Spirit baptizes us into the body of Christ (I Cor. 12:13), by a Spirit birthing of the incorruptible Seed, the Word of God (I Pet. 1:23), and we are "delivered from the authority of darkness and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins" (Col. 1:13). When we were Spirit birthed with Christ, we became one in Spirit with Him (I Cor. 6:17). In Spirit, the Spirit birthed are complete in Christ (Col. 2:10). Christ lives His pure life in us as a pure expression to the Father. Christ took care of the sin nature and the old man of Adam on the cross (Rom. 6:6). Christ has forgiven you all trespasses, and the law and ordinances against us, were nailed to the cross (Col. 2:13-14; Eph. 2:15). Christ has purchased for us this 100% grace!
Third, The Blood of Jesus Obtained an Eternal Redemption to the Father
The author of Hebrews clearly declares, that is "Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption" (Hebr. 9:12). The blood of Jesus obtained an eternal redemption to the Father. For while the sprinkling of blood of temporary sacrifices sanctified unclean flesh before God (Hebr. 9:13), "how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?" (Hebr. 9:14). Through the blood of Jesus, we have an eternal redemption with an eternal sanctification to and with our Father.
Fourth, The Blood of Jesus is the Eternal Light Source in the Spirit for Us
Paul declared, that Christ is our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification (or holiness) and redemption (I Cor. 1:30). This 100% grace has been bought and paid for by the precious blood of Jesus. Why would we spend our life doing dead works, thinking anything that is in or comes forth from our flesh would ever please our Father? No, His Son and His precious shed blood is what pleases the Father. Christ has redeemed us to the Father, and now living in us as us for Him, with His genuine life of wisdom, righteousness, holiness, and redemption. The church needs to live by that rock of revelation from the Father (Matt. 16:17-18). We need to allow the Holy Spirit to reveal to us the deep things of God, that cannot be seen by the natural eye, heard by the natural ear, or perceived by the natural heart (I Cor. 2:9-10). The blood of Jesus is the eternal light source in the Spirit for us. Christ now becomes flesh in us, as light and light to all (Jn. 1:14,4).
Fifth, The Blood and Crucifixion of Jesus Brought Peace with the Father
Now, we are completely sanctified by the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all (Hebr. 10:10). Our sanctification is not what we do, but who Christ is and what He does in us as us. Christ is to live His sanctified life in us to the Father, if we are to please the Father. This is why Paul declared to the Corinthians, that he "determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him Crucified" (I Cor 2:2). Paul want the body of Christ to stand in the wisdom and power of God (I Cor. 1:24; I Cor. 1:18). Paul also knew Christ and Him crucified was the only and real answer to our problems, and true life expression to others for the Father (Gal. 2:20). By the Spirit birthing we were placed in Christ, and were made near to the Father "by the blood of Jesus" (Eph. 2:13). Christ Himself is our peace, who in this new creation one body has reconciled us to our Father, and ever lives in us as us for full Spirit fellowship with the Father (Eph. 2:14-18). Christ living in and through us is life, light, and peace.
Sixth, The Blood of Jesus Gives Us Boldness to Enter into the Holiest
We need to be obedient to the truth. I am not talking about obedience to the law, religion or works of the flesh. Since Jesus learned obedience by the things which He suffered (Hebr. 5:8), we may also suffer (Rom. 8:36). However in all these things we are more than conquerors (Rom. 8:37), for we have Christ the overcomer of the world living in us as us as our peace (John 16:33). Christ "became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him" (Hebr. 9:9). Our whole obedience is simply to Christ. Having the Holy Spirit renew our mind to the truth of Christ living in us is the outworking of our eternal salvation in this earth. Truly, we are saved by His life (Rom. 5:10), and His life expression in us as us (Gal. 2:20). "Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is His flesh" (Hebr. 10:19-20). Because of this 100% grace of Christ we can come boldly, for full fellowship with our Father (Hebr. 4:16).
Seventh, Our Father Sees His Sons Pure Through the Blood of Jesus
Our Heavenly Father sees his sons through the pure blood of Jesus. As a result, our Heavenly Father sees us as righteous, pure, and holy – not based on anything we have ever or will do, but strictly on the reality of the 100% purity of the Christ-life in us, and the 100% grace purchased by the blood of Jesus, and Him crucified as the eternal sacrifice for us. Through Christ, our Father sees us as "holy, and unblamable, and an impeachable witness in His sight" (Col. 1:22).
