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.

Defining Sin Against the Holy Spirit
From: Bideh To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, January 31, 2016 12:42 PM Subject: The Holy Spirit Pls what is the sin against the Holy Spirit that cannot be forgiven? From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Bideh Sent: Monday, February 08, 2016 7:16 AM Subject: Re: The Holy Spirit The sin that can’t be forgiven by men is when one speaks of and treats the work of God as evil. Only God can forgive this sin, which He does when He chooses, just as He did with Saul of Tarsus: “And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, Who strengthened me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry-- the one who before was a blasphemer and a persecutor and insolent” (1 Timothy 1:12-13 MKJV). There is no sin that Jesus Christ hasn’t overcome, Bideh, or He isn’t the Lord and Savior of all men. “But the Law entered so that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound, so that as sin has reigned to death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 5:20-21 MKJV).

Hypocrisy: Judging the World While Being the World
From: Michael To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, May 10, 2016 7:44 AM Subject: You are wrong about Dumitru Dudamen You are wrong about Dumitru Dudamen. You completely misrepresent everything he has said and then you point to his ministry to orphans and such in Romania as evidence of his being false. You are blind and you are guilty of false witness against a servant of the Lord. Independently,  I have known since 1982 that America was Mystery Babylon. Individuals like to neutralize truth by saying it's metaphorical and somehow not literal. Christ on the cross was literal and so is the coming fall of Mystery Babylon, or Babylon the Great. You're like a critical fan on the sidelines at a sports event or worse, sitting at home hurling critiques while watching a game on TV. He suffered and served the Lord faithfully.  Dumitru does not bring glory to himself, only Jesus. He has stood boldly for Christ.  He stands boldly for the Glory of Christ. I'll pray you correct your article after taking it to the Lord in prayer. Then again, that only works if you're truly a christian. At this point I have my doubts. REPENT! Tell the truth not innuendo, slander and certainly not FALSE WITNESS.

Free Masons, So What?
From: Mervyn To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, May 24, 2016 6:12 AM Subject: to the editor  This man Veith that you speak of is the best information i have ever seen on the free masons  and there involvement in the christian churches of today , free masonry runes the world and this man revels that very well the hole religious world is wondering after the beast and they don’t even know it . I believe that God has rased up this man to reveal this to worn the sleeping christian world that they have been sold out. The only people that are offended by this man are people that are  free masons. I have a friend that was a mason and he is now a christian because of this man so just think things through when you say what you are saying about Veith.

Walter greatly errs in major ways.  Read Seventh Day Adventism and The True Marks of a Cult. Also read Conspiracies – Who Cares?  We aren’t free masons and we ...
