Bloodshed is required to get to heaven! The Holy Bible says in Hebrews 9:22, “….Without shedding of blood is no remission.” This word remission means forgiveness, pardon, deliverance, freedom or liberty. Why is it that only bloodshed can bring pardon? First you need to understand, that all humans have the death sentence hanging over them. The Holy Bible declares, that the wages of sin is death and that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of Almighty God. Every human being is born with the inclination to sin and all of us have sinned. Our loving heavenly Father’s justice demands capital punishment for sins. People have forgotten just how much YaHVeH hates sin. Sin is completely contrary to who He is. YaHVeH is a God of righteousness and judgment. He will judge us all on the judgment day, and if we were given what we deserve, we would be condemned to eternal damnation for our rebellious ways.
This is the reason the plan of salvation was conceived by the Almighty. For some incredible reason He was unwilling to let us go. He made a way that we might live forever and escape the torments of eternal damnation. Almighty YaHVeH offered up His only begotten Son as a perfect sacrifice for our sins. You see, someone had to die, because our sins demand the shedding of blood. Our sins demanded a death sentence, but only one perfectly sinless sacrifice existed. Christ Yahshua Jesus volunteered to take our place. When He shed His blood on the cross, the WAY was made for our rescue. YaHVeH only left one requirement for our rescue: that we would ENTRUST our lives to Christ.
What an incredibly grand bargain! I traded my dead life to Christ for His remitting my sins! Never was grander bargain struck than this my friend. It is win win for me and for you, if we make this bargain. Our lives were dead and doomed eternally without hope, until Christ bought us with His own blood. In fact the Holy Bible puts it this way in First Corinthians 6:19-20, “….you are not your own, for you are bought with a price….” Those who have come to Christ must not forget, that we have made a bargain with YaHVeH: His Son’s life for our life. We agreed to give up our lives in exchange for eternal life. My friend, your life no longer belongs to you. Read the above passage again. Are you a man or woman of your word, or are you a covenant-breaker? Your life no longer belongs to you! YaHVeH has kept His end of the bargain by sacrificing His Son in our place and we are duty bound to honor Him with our lives; evenso, we still retain the power of choice/decision of what we will do with our lives from now on. By the grace and help of Almighty YaHVeH; I intend to honor Him with my life and seek to please Him. The price of Yahshua Jesus’s blood was entirely too great for me to treat it carelessly.
During this Easter season give some thought to the fact, that you belong to Christ now and no longer to yourself. If you have not yet made this decision, I encourage you to enter into this grandest of all bargains too. The offer goes out to all peoples. It is extended to the Jews, to all Israelites, to all Arabs, to all Muslims, to all Americans, to all Asians, to all Africans, to all Australians, to all Europeans, to every nation and tongue, to every man, woman, boy and girl, to all the poor and to all the rich, to all the ugly and to all the pretty, to the intelligent and to the unintelligent, and to every single human being without preference: Almighty God loves us all. In the end you will be eternally happy that you did so.
