The Blood of the One Who Shed the Blood of Jesus

January 18, 2007

“Do not pollute the land where you are. Bloodshed pollutes the land, and atonement cannot be made for the land on which blood has been shed, except by the blood of the one who shed it. Do not defile the land where you live and where I dwell, for I, the LORD, dwell among the Israelites.” (Numbers 35:33-35).

Atonement cannot be made for the defiled land on which the blood of Jesus was shed because of the sins of all people, except by the blood of the people who shed the blood of Jesus. The blood was shed to cancel the ten thousand talents of debt that a debtor owed. The debt cannot be fully canceled, except by the blood of the debtor, that is, except by his canceling the hundred denarii of debt that one of his fellows owe him.

Therefore, the Lord Jesus who shed his blood said, “Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?” (Matthew 18:33).

Until the compensation through blood is accomplished, the blood of Jesus is still crying out louder than the blood of Abel. It is written, “to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.” (Hebrews 12:24).

Therefore, those who hear the voice of the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel sprinkle their blood to hear the voice of love and fulfill it. It is written, “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.” (1 John 3:16).

The blood of Jesus is the blood of love, and the commandment of love of God. Whoever has this commandment and obeys it, he can remain in the love of God. It is written, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35). And again, “Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him.” (John 14:21).

Therefore, only those whom the love of Christ Jesus was manifested to, those who bear on their body the marks of Jesus, belong to Jesus Christ. They crucified the flesh with its passions and desires, and also shed their own blood on the sacrifice of the blood of Jesus that they shed.

The Bible says about it, “Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices.” (Luke 13:1). And also, “because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.” (Hebrews 10:14). He has made perfect forever those who are being made holy by mixing the blood of them–the sinners who shed the blood of Christ–with the sacrifice of the blood of Christ.

The Bible says, “knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. For he who has died has been freed from sin.” (Romans 6:6-7). This truth is about making full atonement for the body that was defiled by bloodshed.

The Bible surely says, “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.” (1 John 4:7-12).

We can be made holy by Jesus who came by water and blood and by the Word who is God. It is written, “that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.” (Ephesians 5:26-27).

Therefore, this is the completion of redemption: “Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” (Matthew 6:12).

An apostle who also shed the blood of Jesus said, “Now I rejoice in what was suffered for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church.” (Colossians 1:24). He completed the salvation by filling up in his body the afflictions of the shedding of blood that Christ left behind for us, for the sake of his body, which is the church.

This apostle who became a light for the Gentiles exhorted, “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.” (1 Corinthians 11:1).

Therefore, the salvation cannot be made complete except by the blood of the one who shed the blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus is the head of redemption, and the blood of the sinner who shed it is the body of redemption. So the Bible said, “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. This is a profound mystery–but I am talking about Christ and the church.” (Ephesians 5:31-32).

I hope that the Lord will make everyone know this truth, who shed the blood of the Lord, and will make the natural body–the land where we live and where God dwells–become the spiritual body. Thank you, Lord.
