It Is All About His Shed Blood
Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. (Hebrews 9:12 KJV)
Think upon the spiritual richness in this scripture verse for a moment:
“but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place…”
There is immense eternal power contained in His blood. The shed blood of Jesus Christ was the “spiritual key” for gaining entrance into the most holy place. His blood purchased the opportunity for eternal redemption for whosoever who turns the key through the fuel of faith.
The Old Testament commandment for sacrificing the blood of goats and calves was an offering for sin but did not have supernatural power for redemption from sin. A blood sacrifice of animals could not turn the key to unlock the door to eternal fellowship with God. Only the shed blood of The Perfect Lamb could purchase spiritual restoration.
Only the innocent shed blood of God’s Son, the Perfect Lamb, had the supernatural power to purchase redemption and eternal freedom from sin through the faith in His finished work on the cross at Calvary.
