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.  

Blessings

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.

Faith in Christ Leads One to Fulfilling the Law
From: Adam To: The Path of Truth Sent: Monday, September 12, 2016 2:09 PM Subject: Religious spirits Hi I have recently heard of Norman grub at the home fellowship I go. I saw what you had to say about him, False teacher you say. I believe What Norman grub taught from what I've heard so far is the difference between pleasing God in the flesh, and pleasing God in the spirit. God desires sons not religious Pharisees. Remember it's the goodness of God that leads us to repentance but by the fear of the Lord one departs from evil. Not the other way round The high people in society that rejected Jesus were those religious leaders that could not receive Jesus by faith. We need to die to ourselves completely our own ideas our own ways and just believe in the finished work of Christ alone for without faith it's impossible to please God so if you think you can please God in the flesh make sure you keep the whole law with nothing left undone.

Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the Law” (Romans 3:31 EMTV).

Spreading God's Grace to people all over this world. And has brought many people to except Christ Jesus as their personal savior. And he give hope and teaches you how to have a personal relationship with God, His precious Son Christ Jesus and the Holy Spirit. If he hasn't been sent by God he would not be preaching these things.
