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 blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.Blood as defined by the English dictionary is, "a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substance (oxygen, nutrients) to the body's cell, while along with transporting waste product away from those very same cells in." Jehovah God is very well adapted to teaching His children spiritual occurrences through natural means for our own understanding. In this case the Holy Spirit uses the bodily functions of human blood to explain the Spiritual ramifications of Christ own shed blood on Calvary 2,000 years ago. The Blood of Christ did more than just do away with the old testament sacrificial system, but just like the blood that runs through our own veins, the Lord's blood carries the necessary substance spiritually for all who believe on Him to live a victorious life while we are still here in the flesh awaiting His return. The Word of God defines those in Christ as a body as read in, 1 Corinthians 12:12, "For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ." As a collective we function as such, in the spreading of the Gospel of Christ with his blood carrying the much needed substance to all just like our own natural blood. Jesus blood carries 3 very crucial nutrients to those who have accepted Jesus, with the first being forgiveness throughout the Body of Christ as read in Revelations 1:5 "And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood." Knowing we are sinful but rely on the precious Blood of Jesus to cover all and make us right in the eyes of God. Our sins past present and future are cleansed! As long as we continue to follow Jesus and adhere to his precious blood. The second important nutrient is total victory! Christ blood gives us the power to overcome the powers of the enemy and the schemes laid before us, Revelations 12:11 states, "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death." The Lord will never leave or forsake any of His own in our time of need. Any and everything is given unto Us to overcome through our Faith in the Cross and what Jesus did on it. Much of what we endure is according to the will God in each season, to perfect our Faith as needed. Trials are to glorify the Father and promote Jesus Christ as His son. Their is no better testimony than that of a overcomer through the Blood of Jesus. The third function of the Blood of Christ to the body is sanctification, (being one with the Lord) Hebrews 10:10 says, "By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all." In knowing Jesus we become one with Him, also having His strength and right relationship with Jehovah God. The Blood is total victory for the Body of Christ, and all who truly know Him. I pray that we all come together as one body and allow the Blood of Jesus to Forgive, Sanctify, and grant all total victory in Christ.
