Blood Purifies the Worshipper

  1. Everything I offer God outside of the blood is offensive
    1. “And according to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission.”. Hebrews‬ ‭9‬:‭22‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬
    1. The blood clothes us with humility
    1. A cry for the blood is an admittance that one needs cleansing which in turn is a humbling of oneself
    2. “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heart— These, O God, You will not despise.” Psalms‬ ‭51‬:‭17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬
  1. Even our worship must be clothed in the blood or it is offensive
    1. “And when they came to Nachon’s threshing floor, Uzzah put out his hand to the ark of God and took hold of it, for the oxen stumbled. Then the anger of the Lord was aroused against Uzzah, and God struck him there for his error(irreverence); and he died there by the ark of God.”. II Samuel‬ ‭6‬:‭6‬-‭7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬
    2. “The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men—extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’ And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’” Luke‬ ‭18‬:‭11‬-‭13‬ ‭‬‬‬‬
    3. Humility cries out because you know you or your works are not enough
    4. Faith must be In The cross
  1. “Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.” Romans‬ ‭3‬:‭19‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬
    1. “Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed,” Romans‬ ‭3‬:‭20‬-‭25‬ ‭‬‬‬‬
    2. All are guilty before God and faith in the blood cleanses the conscious of the worshipper
  1. David’s guilt kept him from the building the tabernacle
    1. “but the word of the Lord came to me, saying, ‘You have shed much blood and have made great wars; you shall not build a house for My name, because you have shed much blood on the earth in My sight. Behold, a son shall be born to you, who shall be a man of rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies all around. His name shall be Solomon, for I will give peace and quietness to Israel in his days.” I Chronicles‬ ‭22‬:‭8‬-‭9‬‬‬‬
    2. “Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.” Hebrews‬ ‭10‬:‭19‬-‭22‬ ‭NKJV‬‬‬‬‬‬
