A Voice In The Wilderness - Canada Animal Sacrific Index
|Isaiah 53:||5: But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: The chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.|
6: All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
After so great a sacrifice, how ought the sinner to approach the Almighty? There is only one answer; and that is: with repentance, faith & gratitude.
16: For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.|
18: He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
|John 1:||29: ... Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.|
Do you believe these verses? Do you believe that Yahweh gave His only begotten Son Yeshua to die in your place, and that he is the Lamb of God? If you do, then you are in line for mercy, salvation and everlasting life.

|Hebrews 10:||9: "Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second."|
Yeshua's blood represents his life. It means far more than the sacrifice which took his life.
As you read the following Bible texts, bear that vital truth in mind, that every reference to the Saviour's blood is in fact a reference to 'his life.' Sure, Yeshua's sacrifice was the act of giving up his life. However, his 'sacrificial death' doesn't cleans us. It is the faithful application of his life-giving blood to our souls that cleanses us from sin. In ancient days, it wasn't the animal's death that cleansed the sinner; it was the application or 'sprinkling of its blood' upon the sinner that sybolically cleansed him. Do not miss the subtle difference; because some modern translations (Good News Bible) often omit the word blood by replacing it with the phrase sacrificial death; These are mistranslations of the Real Word of God.
|Acts 20:||28: Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with his own blood.|

This text pictures the unclean person or leper who was obliged to abide outside the camp because of uncleanness. Messiah's blood sanctifies (purifies and sets apart) the unclean believer and qualifies him/her to re-enter the camp and the Father's presence.
