“Everyone who believes in him is made right in God’s sight—something the law of Moses could never do.” Acts 13:39
What was once so pristine, shiny and beautiful was now splattered and covered in blood. The Alter and Ark of the Covenant had the blood of sheep, goats and birds on them. It was a bloody mess, but that mess was necessary and saved lives. Hebrews 9:22 says that, “In fact, according to the law of Moses, nearly everything was purified with blood. For without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness.”
All of this would change one day in the future when Jesus, The Lamb of God, would come to shed his own blood and be “the final Fix” the world needed. His blood would take away the sins of the world forever. Once crucified and His own blood poured out on the Alter and Throne of God in Heaven, all of mankind’s sins would be wiped away. Forgiveness would rule the day, and throughout all eternity, for all those who would just simply believe and put their faith and trust in Jesus.
We are so blessed! We don’t have to go through all the things they did in those days gone by. The Father has made a better Way and a better Covenant for you and me. Thank Him today for what He has done, and is continually doing, through our beautiful Lord Jesus.
