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.

Were People Drawn to Christ’s Love?
From: Karie To: The Path of Truth Sent: Monday, September 05, 2016 9:29 PM Subject: Did people want what Jesus had? You posed this question in one of your articles, "did people want what Jesus had?" And you answered no. Yes they did. They saw the love of the Father radiating from Him. He had thousands of followers that were drawn to this love. The religious spirited were the ones who hated Him. He said that we will be persecuted in His name. My question to you is why are you persecuting other believers? Are we not all brothers and sisters in Christ? We may have different styles of spreading the gospel but the Body needs to be united.  If people see Christ within us to the fullest they will be drawn to know Him and our Heavenly Father. Slandering people on the Internet is not a reflection of what Christ taught us to do.

Todd White’s Self-Generated, UnGodly Love
From: Kaleb To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, September 20, 2016 6:37 PM Subject: Judging Matthew 7:1-3, 16 1 Samuel 16:7 1 John 4:1-3 2 John 1:7 Just because a man asks for money, heals in an unconventional way, loves people unconditionally, or is loved by others does not make him a false prophet. Wigglesworth, White, and Johnson all preach the gospel and admit Jesus came in the flesh. I've also met Todd White personally. He gets persecuted all the time. His goal is that we all love each other, doesn't mean it happens. Luke 9:50 "Do not stop him" Jesus said "Whoever is not against you is for you." I love you and I pray God heals your heart from any pain caused to you and renews you wholly. From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Kaleb Sent: Tuesday, September 27, 2016 7:05 AM Subject: Re: Judging Kaleb, the Scriptures you cite declare exactly the point you’re missing. For example: “But the LORD said to Samuel, ‘Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart’” (1 Samuel 16:7 ESV). You’re judging Todd White by appearance – not his physical appearance, but according to what you see of his works and love. You’re not seeing the heart. Yes, Todd has love, but not the love of God from a pure heart. It’s a self-generated love, also known as False Love - Satan’s Last Stronghold. You also quote: 1 John 4:1-3 ESV ...
Laying Down One's Life Versus the Amish Faith
Subject: Amish faith From: Sam Zook To: Victor Hafichuk Date: 12/12/2015 12:39 PM Hello.  I have a few questions on Matthew 18:18..   I grew up Amish and when I was 17 my whole family left the old order amish because we felt they were teaching a works based salvation.. We were Mennonite (drove cars and had electricity etc)  for 2 years.. Then my parents wanted to go back to some kind of amish, so we could communicate with our relatives a little more.. So they found a new-order type amish church that thought salvation through faith.. And being born again etc.  They don't have man made rules tied to the church.. They live solely on the bible.    Anyway, I met a girl from a strict old order church and we fell in love and are planning on getting married in May....  But in order to marry her I have to move to her church and become a member there.. At first I didn't like that idea cause they believe in a lotta stuff that I don't believe is 100% truth.. (they have very low morals, their young people party, get drunk and are very wild...not unlike the young of this world, almost everyone smokes.. They don't talk about God much except in church.. And even then its only the preachers talking about God... They believe we cannot know if we are saved, that we just go through life in good hopes that we did good enough and attended church enough to reach salvation when they meet Jesus..  There's lot more stuff but I will touch on that later) But I decided I will do that so we...
