Bloodlines

Pastor Tom Lundeen

 

When we don’t know who we are, or if we have wrong ideas about who we are…it will impact every  of our lives...

 

God wants us to understand why the  bloodlines we inherit when we say Yes to Jesus as Lord are key factors in helping us form our REAL ID.

 

1. Why is  so Significant

 

Like water, blood is a fluid that is  for life.

In the Scriptures, blood is a powerful symbol for  itself (note Leviticus 17:14a).

Note Genesis 3:21

 

Even before the Old Testament Law was given through Moses, it was clear that people understood that because of how crucial blood is to life, blood represented a  offering to God:

 

In the Old Testament Law, there were  types of sacrifices. 

Major one was  of Atonement (i.e., Yom Kippur; note Leviticus 23).

Also when the Old  was confirmed (Exodus 24).

 

But none of these sacrifices, either alone or combined, couldn’t  pay the penalty for sin (note Hebrews 10:1b-4).

 

2. The  of Jesus Christ

 

God’s ultimate plan was to provide the perfect, flawless sacrifice offered the right way that would  pay the price for all past, present, and future sins.

Note Genesis 3:15

 

…Jesus became the  High Priest, entering heaven (i.e., the Holy of Holies), and once for all, not by the blood of animals being sacrificed, but by His own  blood He shed on Good Friday (note Hebrews 9:11-14, 24-26; 10:11-12).

Note 1 John 2:2

 

So in the New Testament, it’s Jesus’ blood that becomes the  of God’s new eternal covenant of love and grace.

When we say Yes to Jesus as Lord, we inherit an  bloodline…His blood:

 

          A.  us (note Ephesians 1:7)

          B. Reconciles us to God (Romans 3:25)

          C. Paid our  (1 Peter 1:18-19; Revelation 5:9)

          D.  our sins away (1 John 1:7)

          E. Provides our  forgiveness (Hebrews 9:22)
