SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: Luke 22: 39-46 and Matthew 26: 36-43....While reading these scripture passages, my thoughts turned to what I was taught in Sunday School when I was a child. My understanding about what happened with Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane when He asked the Father to take the "cup of suffering" from Him, I believed Jesus was asking for the cross sacrifice to be taken away. But on closer examination Jesus was actually asking not to die in the garden so that He could fulfill His destiny on the cross! Jesus realized that the blood that dripped in the garden would not redeem. The answered prayer in the garden fulfilled ALL that was written of Him. This made Jesus the perfect redemption! He filled the letter of the law and the prophetic of Him carrying the cross to His physical death. God answered Jesus' prayer in the garden so He could be our sacrifice for sin on the cross! It truly is a perfect redemption!
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
