Why Do Sacrifices Need Blood?

I agree with everything you say …….. the temple of the living YHWH is within man.  I believe though that there will probably be a 3rd physical temple built that no doubt will also setup animal sacrifice, which will try to negate the sacrifice of Yeshua.

I have a question that no one so far has been able to answer….maybe you can and if not it is ok as some things maybe we cannot understand at this point.  Why does/did a living God require a blood sacrifice?  What is it about the blood of a physical being that would make a God require it for the redemption of sins?  Is it the actual chemical composition of it….or????  I cannot seem to be able to make sense of it in my mind.  Is it something like this — since physical man fell from a higher place because of disobedience he because of the way creation was setup was destined to perish for all time…….is it because of how creation was arranged that if the “rules” were not followed that part of creation had to be destroyed….I think I get that……And then the son of man comes along perfect …..yet born of a woman…….chose to die a mortal death but in that death defeated IT and yet lives…..is it because He overcame this place  we through him overcome…..and it was not necessarily the actual blood sacrifice.    I think I understand everything except for the spilling of blood.  

In your opinion is there going to be an end time…… when this system is cutoff?  It certainly does seem that we are reaching some sort of climax.  I actually sort of feel it at times.  Or is the end of days when each person decides to not live in this place but rather flee to a higher place – the New Jerusalem.

Hi Donna,

“For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it for you on the altar to make atonement for your souls, for it is the blood that makes atonement by the life” (Leviticus 17:11 ESV).

The life is in the blood – and it is life that we’ve needed ever since entering death by eating from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. But it’s not just any life we’ve needed, as from the blood of goats and calves. It’s the life coming from the blood of the sinless Son of God that saves us. 

Hebrews 9:11-15 MKJV

(11)  But when Christ had become a high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building
(12)  nor by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered once for all into the Holies, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
(13)  For if the blood of bulls and of goats and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling the unclean sanctifies to the purifying of the flesh,
(14)  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?
(15)  And for this cause He is the Mediator of the new covenant, so that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first covenant, those who are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

Also read How One Is Saved and then let us know if your question hasn’t been answered. 

As for the end times, we’re in them, even the end of the age of man’s rule as spoken of in Daniel 2. But you’re also on the right track that the end times personally come when we’re called to repent, take up the cross, and follow the Lord to the New Jerusalem. 

“But as many as received Him, He gave to them authority to become the children of God, to those who believe on His Name, who were born, not of bloods, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but were born of God” (John 1:12-13 MKJV).

John 6:52-57 MKJV

(52)  Then the Jews argued with one another, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
(53)  Then Jesus says to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves.
(54)  Whoever partakes of My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
(55)  For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.
(56)  He who partakes of My flesh and drinks My blood dwells in Me, and I in him.
(57)  As the living Father has sent Me, and I live through the Father, so he who partakes of Me, even he shall live by Me.

Cree en El SEñor O Cree en Las Mentiras
English - Spanish De: Court Para: The Path of Truth Enviado: Martes, 5 de Abril, 2016 10:08 AM Asunto: Pregunta Yo estaba leyendo un artículo que escribiste acerca de que John Piper es un falso maestro y yo tenía una pregunta al respeto. Antes de hacer la pregunta, me gustaría dejar claro que estoy familiarizado con Piper, pero no conozco completamente su doctrina. Yo solo he visto algunos videos cortos de él en YouTube. Sin embargo, tu crítica de él como un falso maestro gira en torno al hecho de que él predica sobre un lugar de castigo eterno para los no creyentes (el infierno), como puedes leer en tus propios escritos:  Una de las más grandes y peores mentiras contadas por el cristianismo artificial, una a la que John Piper se suscribe y enseña, es que hay un lugar de tormento y castigo interminable para los pecadores. Los hombres piensan que esta doctrina se encuentra en la Biblia, pero aunque es algo que el hombre carnal le desearía a otros, definitivamente no es algo que Dios haya dicho o que alguna vez haya pasado por Su mente. Él hizo la creación como un acto de Su amor. Él amó tanto al mundo que dio a Su Hijo unigénito por él. Nosotros somos de Él, comprados y pagados con Su sangre.  Me preguntaba de dónde sacaste la idea de que no existe el infierno, basado en el hecho de que hay numerosos versículos en la Biblia, algunos incluso dichos por Jesús, quien tú crees que es Dios, como yo también, sobre la existencia de un lugar de castigo eterno para las p...
It's Not Too Late, Addict, for Repentance
From: Jordan To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, February 23, 2016 2:50 PM Subject: Repentance Is there ever a point where we are too far from repentance?  I've been an addict for years and while I was under the influence the devil manifested before me and told me he won and God turned me over to him.  At that point there was a deep sinking feeling in my heart and since then I've been doing better working towards cutting all sins from myself.  I pray daily and read the bible daily now trying to learn the word of God.  The people in my life tend to be Devils and I can tell now.  Is that because I am now one with his side?  When the devil manifested before me I rebuked what he said and have been working as hard as I can to remove all sin from me.  If you could help me out it would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks. Jordan From: Victor Hafichuk To: Jordan Sent: Tuesday, March 01, 2016 7:09 AM Subject: Re: Repentance Hi Jordan, Have you red our paper on Repentance? You’ve been trying to effect your own repentance, which is impossible. That’s why you’re confused about whose side you’re on – God’s or the Devil’s. When you experience the gift of repentance from God, you’ll know assuredly that He is on your side, and by walking in faith, that you’re on His side.  But at least you’ve taken the step of acknowledging the Law is good, and also realize you can’t believe what the Devil tells you, because he’s a liar. So keep going, and when you fail, look to the Lord...
