Last week we learned that the Blood of Jesus opens up another or new Sanctuary in Hebrews 9:1. The first sanctuary was mentioned in Exodus 25:8. Or we will find that Jesus would be a priest after a different order. This new order was opened up because God had always wanted to be with his people or wanted a new covenant.
Therefore, in this order to create that new covenant or to dwell with human God had to robe himself in the flesh to dwell just to dwell with us. We find that God had wanted to build His tabernacle with His people, or dwell in his people.
Once more Jesus became the sacrificial lamb or high priest (High priest means, beginning, origin, the person or thing that commences the first person or thing in a series, the leader). Now, since Jesus became the high priest there are several noticeable things that the blood does for an individuals. There are three noticeable things that the blood does in an individual’s life. The first thing the blood does is it, Purge our Conscience, verses 14, The word “purge” kath-ar-id'-zo , means, “to cleanse and free from filth, cleanse from physical stains and dirt, to cleanse by curing to remove by cleansing in a moral sense, to free from defilement of sin and from faults, to purify from wickedness, and free from guilt of sin.
This meaning could also refer to the cleansing of the lepers, or to a ceremonial cleansing. The blood of the Old Testament sacrificial system could never completely cleanse the stains of sin away. However, the blood of Jesus cleanses the sinner completely! (Rev. 1:5; 1 John 1:7.) That is why the writers of the New Testament are able to say that we have been “justified”. That is, we have been declared right with God, according to 1 Cor. 6:9-11.
The blood of Jesus Purges our conscience, the Greek word conscience in verse 14, “purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” The word ‘conscience’ is “soon-i'-day-sis”, which means, the consciousness of anything, the soul as distinguishing between what is morally good and bad, prompting to do the former and shun the latter and the sacrifices of lambs could not cleanse the conscience. We find that in verses 11-14 Jesus allowed us to receive entrance to the heavenly sanctuary, Hebrews 9:11-14, “11But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; 12Neither 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. 13For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”
The second thing the blood does is it, Bring Change in our lives, in verses 15, “And for this cause he is the mediator of the New Testament.” This change comes through the redemption of the transgression, which will bring victory. The Greek word Redemption is “ap-ol-oo'-tro-sis” and means, A releasing effected by payment of ransom, Deliverance, Liberation procured by payment of a ransom. (These are related scriptures that deal with changes in our lives, 1-Peter 1:18-19, 1-John 1:7, Galatians 3:13, 4:5, Leviticus 17:11 and Colossians 1:14).
Notice the scripture also mentioned transgression, and the Greek word transgression is “par-ab'-as-is” and means, A going over, Breaking, A disregarding, and Violating of the Mosaic Law. The book of Galatians told us where we get the victory in Galatians 2:20”I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Understand that redemption had to come for us as believers because of the sins that were committed under the Law. So Christ paid the prince for our sins.
The third thing that the blood of Jesus does in our lives is, The blood gives us Eternal Inheritance in verses 15, “they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.”Eternal inheritance can only come from God and the Greek word Eternal is “ahee-o-nee-os” and means,Without beginning and end, That which always has been and always will be, Without beginning, Never to cease and Everlasting.
This eternal inheritance comes to us by the promise that was made by Abraham, in Hebrews 6:12 & 8:6-12. Therefore, the blood will certainly, purge our conscience, bring change in our lives and give us eternal inheritance. Understand that inheritance means to what is given to one as a possession or the eternal blessedness of the consummated kingdom of God which is to be expected after the visible return of Christ. These are some scripture on Inheritance (John 14:1-31-Peter 1:4-5, Galatians 3:18, Colossians 3:24 and Hebrews 11:8).
In Hebrews 9:15-22 is where the new covenant was established. Since the blood of Jesus Christ is not like the blood of doves, lambs and human but it’s the blood that, wins and is guiltiness. Jesus’ blood is refers to the seat of life and helps us to walk in newness of life, gives complete restoration and joy. But most importantly the blood of Jesus purges our lives, bring change and give eternal inheritance. Once more it is because of the blood that we can and will have access to the throne room, which allows us to gain pure conscience, bring change and give us full access to eternal life. The blood of Jesus can turn anything around in your life if you will only plead the BLOOD.
