In 1Corinthians 5:7 it mentions that "For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us." John the Baptist saw Jesus walking by and said, "Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world." He was correct. Jesus was crucified on the exact day, at the exact time that the head of each house would sacrifice the lamb for his family. Amazing!!! In Jewish tradition and covenant, a lamb was sacrificed each year on the 14th day of the first month. They would separate this lamb for five days and prepare it by grooming, feeding and getting familiar with it, knowing it would be sacrificed! Yeshua was just as the lamb prepared by Jewish fathers. We need to set Him apart, knowing He too was innocent but was sacrificed so we could be reconciled to God. He Still is the Lamb who takes our sins away. Never forget that we as believers in our Lord and our Savior get to sit with Him at the His table!!!
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
