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.

The Great Peace of the Wise
From: Benjamin To: The Path of Truth Sent: Wednesday, January 27, 2016 10:51 AM Subject: God bless you  I sure hope you have a good day today, because it looks from your website like you've been having a lot of bad days. Do you live day to day just angry all the time? Jesus said, "Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest." You look like you could use some rest. If you live in anger and frustration all the time, you're letting this world steal away your joy. That's one of the fruits of the Spirit, you know. So are gentleness and peace.  Good bless you and have a wonderful day!  From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Benjamin Sent: Monday, February 01, 2016 7:29 AM Subject: Re: God bless you  Bless the Lord, Benjamin, we don’t live in anger and frustration all or even most of the time. That’s your assumption based on disagreement with the truth the Lord has given us that exposes liars, cheats, and the willfully deluded.  You have no idea what our lives are like, do you? You also speak in total ignorance of the record of the Scriptures regarding what the lives of His servants are like: 2 Corinthians 6:3-10 MKJV (3)  We are in nothing giving cause of stumbling, in no way, so that the ministry may not be blamed, (4)  but in everything commending ourselves as God's servants, in much patience, in troubles, in emergencies, in distresses, (5)  in stripes, in imprisonments, in riots, in labors, in watchings, in fastings; (6)  i...
The Todd White Way, Not God’s Way
From: Daniel To: The Path of Truth Sent: Wednesday, September 14, 2016 3:45 PM Subject: Hey! I would just like to say! I'm not a Todd White "Fanatic" Jesus famatic. I can tell you honestly he is not a false teacher. It's like anything else that is taught in Christian circles "you eat the meat and spit out the bones. He does teach and preach straight out of the word of God. I am sorry his faith in God does not correlate to your own personal standards of who and what a Christian should be. Like it says in the scriptures "work out your own plan of salvation. From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Daniel Sent: Wednesday, September 21, 2016 7:01 AM Subject: Re: Hey! Todd White hasn’t worked out his salvation with fear and trembling, and neither have you, Daniel. Eating the meat and spitting out the bones is healthy, but drinking water from a poisoned well isn’t – it’s deadly.  “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death” (Proverbs 16:25 ESV).

Ensordecidos Por El Pecado
De: Paulette Para: The Path of Truth Enviado: Jueves, 1 de Septiembre, 2016 5:10 PM Asunto: Yo creo que publicar esas cosas no es correcto La confianza en Cristo es un absoluto, pero difamar el carácter de uno es una ofensa grave. Si puedes leer el hebreo original igual que yo y seguir el camino de regreso a Jesús, quizás podrías reconsiderar cualquier intercambio de comentarios negativos. Lo siento, pero puedo llamarle culto a cualquier cosa.  Solamente necesito ser empoderada y usar las escrituras para hacerlo. El dinero puede ser utilizado para bien y para mal. ¿El dinero es malo? Si el dinero es malo entonces no podemos usarlo.  Por favor, espero que puedas servir a Dios pidiéndole que te ayude con tus defectos.  Todos los tenemos. Todos estamos destinados a volver al árbol de la vida. La muerte y la vida están en el poder de la lengua.  Gracias  Paulette De: Paul Cohen Para: Paulette Cc: Víctor Hafichuk Enviado: Viernes, 9 de Septiembre, 2016 7:36 AM Asunto: Re: Yo creo que publicar esas cosas no es correcto  Hola Paulette,  Te escuchamos decir que hemos difamado ministros honestos y fieles de Jesucristo, pero no estamos conscientes de haber hecho eso nunca. Al contrario, hemos expuesto a muchos falsos maestros. Revisa tu diccionario y las Escrituras – exponer no es difamar. Cada falso maestro en nuestro sitio ha sido descubierto por dos o más testigos, según la Palabra de Dios. No tienes nada que demuestre lo contrario.  Lo mis...
