The wonderful plan of redemption was made from the beginning. God willed and desired the salvation of man from the time the first man and woman disobey Him in the garden of Eden. God made man higher than all other creatures of His hand, giving him dominion over all things He created. Man was created in God’s own image, after His own likeness (Gen 1:26). The perfect, holy,sinless,merciful and righteous God imparted His nature into man. Adam and Eve were in that perfect state before they yielded to the serpent’s temptation and did exactly what God commanded them not to do. From that time, God promised the world a saviour. “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head and thou shall buise his heel” (Gen.3:15). Here we have the first prophecy that Jesus would come to this world to redeem mankind and defeat man’s arch-enemy. God ,through prophet Isaiah said, “Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive,and bear a son, and shall call His name Immanuel” (Isaiah 7:14). The prophesy is reiterated in Matthew’s gospel. “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shall call his name Jesus: for He shall save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21). These prophecies reveal that Jesus came for a purpose; and that is to save man from sin. Why was it necessary? Sin brings death. “The soul that sinneth, it shall die (Ezekiel 18:4). This death is spiritual seperation from God. But because of the of God for mankind, He gave Jesus as a subtitute to die in your stead to save you from sin. God’s word in Leviticus 7:11 says, “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I (JESUS) have given it to you upon the alter (Calvary) to make an atonement for your souls; for it is the BLOOD that maketh atonement for the soul.” Many today bring the good works of their hands to atone for their sins (like cain) and others shed the blood of animals to redeem them from their sins. The Bible says a man is not justified by the works of the law (Galatians 2:16). Justification does not come by the giving of tithes, or by giving money to beggars and to the motherless,neither does it come by fasting. But all things were by the law purged with blood; yet you cannot be purged by the blood of animals. “For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins” (Hebrew 10:4). The only way you can be washed from your sins is ” by His OWN BLOOD (through which) He entered in once into the holy place, HAVING OBTAINED ETERNAL REDEMPTION FOR US” (Hebrews 9:12). “….and without shedding of BLOOD (the Blood of JESUS) is no remission” (Hebrew 9:22). No labour of your hands can atone for your sins, ONLY THE BLOOD OF JESUS! In Ephesians 1:7, the Bible says, “In whom we have redemption, through his blood, the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace.” The grace of God is an undeserved favour and it is for everybody. You need to know the importance of the blood of Jesus in your own life. The blood of Jesus washed whiter than snow. While you are yet deep in fornication, alcoholism, gossiping, quarrelling and malice, I want you to know that the the BLOOD of JESUS has been shed for every individual. If you believe now, you will receive the forgiveness of your sins freely. You need to be redeemed from the condemnation and guilt of sin now. “Repent ye therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out…” (Acts 3:19). Jesus was slain for everybody, not for a particular race. For the Bible says that Jesus was slain and has redeemed us to God by His BLOOD OUT OF EVERY TONGUE,EVERY PEOPLE AND EVERY NATION (Revelation 5:9). His sacrifice is for you also. Do you have a hope of getting to Heaven? Do you hope for a rest after your toils, trials and suffering in this world? Then look unto Jesus. Your sins must be washed if you want to get to heaven, you need to be made a new creature, having the life and nature of God in you and be an overcome all the days of your life. “And they overcame him (Satan) by the BLOOD OF THE LAMB (JESUS)….” (Revelation 12:11). The great price of redemption-the BLOOD OF JESUS-has been paid. It is for you now to accept it, for Jesus already said “IT IS FINISHED.” What is finished? God’s work of redemption! His work to set your soul free from sin and deliver you from all the works of the devil is finished. Now,pray and tell JESUS about all your sins, allow His blood to wash you clean and to make His work of redemption real in your life. Confess and forsake sll your sins, asking and believing God for pardon and the BLOOD OF JESUS will wash you whiter than snow!……………….Amen.
May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
