The Precious Shed Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ

Christ’s Blood, Shed for All Mankind:

Christ’s innocent blood was shed once and for all time to deal with all the sins of mankind. The adequacy of His blood was foretold by typology without the mention of blood specifically. The blood may be seen in the blood shed by some innocent animal in order for God to produce the skins necessary to cover Adam and Eve’s sin, and thereby the sin of all mankind .

Gen 3:7 the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made them aprons.

Gen 3:21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

Here above the animal blood that was shed produced only what would cover their act of sin. Yet, it foretold of a time when “the Lamb of God,” Jesus Christ, would come, shed His blood and die, not to cover sins, but more, to take away the sins of the world of mankind (John 1:29) – if they would only have faith in His blood (Rom 3:25).

1) Christ’s shed blood applies for believing of Israel under the Messianic Kingdom gospel, which Israel will receive while in the Tribulation and many more “at His appearing.”

Jesus foretold of the purpose and work of His blood for Israel ’s new covenant.

Mat 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. Paul writes Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

Zechariah confirms that one day the fountain of the blood of Christ will cleanse the believers of Israel when He returns at the end of the Tribulation. Zechariah 13:1 (KJV) In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.

2) Christ’s shed blood applies also under Paul’s “gospel of the grace of God” in this day of “the dispensation of the grace of God.”

Now, with the blossoming of understanding that we gain from Paul’s 14 epistles, describing the riches of the gospel of “the dispensation of the grace of God” and of the cross of Christ, we have the outline and basis of our first stage of deliverance that requires “the blood of Christ.” Jesse Penn Lewis offers these thoughts.
