Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying,” Drink from it, all of you for this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
When you partake the cup, when you partake of the Lords cup the Lord wants you to look at His body, not just the beating and His stripes on the cross but, His body was never sick, Jesus was never sick. Remember there is life and health in the body of Christ. The more you partake release your faith in partaking of His healthy body. When you take communion you need to believe that Jesus was never sick, my body is as He is.
Today we talk about the cup which is very important, because the bible says that all things in the law are purge with blood. Without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. The first person who killed shed blood to cover sins was God, when Adam and Eve sinned remember they where clothed with the glory of God. When they sinned the glory disappeared. God covered man with skin, than means God killed the first lam (picture of His Son) the innocent for the guilty. God was showing man that without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.
Adam and Eve had two sons, Cain and Abel and they obviously told them to do the same blood sacrifice for sins. One of the sons Cain refused to do this Gods way. Today there are a lot of Cain’s in the word they refuse to accept Jesus blood for their sins and want God to accept their good works, it will never come to Gods standard, they want God to accept their works, their doings, their feelings, their worship. God says His way is by blood. Sin is serious it takes innocent blood to wash away guilty blood. I am a sinner and I need Jesus blood to cover me.
God is outside time that is why He paid for all of our sins even our future sins, there is no past and present for God. All our sins are paid for. Ephesians 1: 7 In Him we have redemption through His blood the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace. The verse means that people posses it!! Paul in this verse did not use the word confess, Paul says possess it, declare you have it.
Cain was jealous of his brother and murdered his brother, God says where is your brother?, and he says to God what, am I my brother’s keeper? Genesis 4: 10 And He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground. This is not the first time blood has shed but it is the first time the word blood is mentioned in the bible. The first time blood is mentioned God says it has a VOICE. Blood has a voice!
Hebrew12:24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better thing than Abel. It cries out mercy, forgiveness to all sinners, it cries out blessings on your family, it cries out healing for your body, it cries out peace for your mind, it cries out freedom form oppression, depression, addiction and salvation. It cries to God to rain out on your blessings. The Spirit of God always answers to the blood.
Law demands and grace supplies don’t refuse the voice of grace. Grace is Jesus blood over your life.
