Sacrifice. Written by Manashantii. Saturday 19th March 2016
God is a Holy Judge, and His nature makes Him a lover of Justice because of this He has to have payment of sins. God has already provided the payment of sins which is the blood sacrifice of His son Jesus or Yeshua who died in place of you for your sins. Your sins can only be forgiven by God if you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.
Jesus is a living sacrifice to atone for our sins and reunite us with God. Jesus is the perfect sacrifice..
Romans 12v1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Present your body as a living sacrifice. Be a living sacrifice by worshipping God evangelising and doing good deeds.
Hebrews 9 explains about blood for sacrifice
especially Hebrews 9v13-v15 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14 How 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? 15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
Hebrews9v2-v22 And almost all things are by law purged with blood: and without shedding of blood is no remission.
Hebrews 9v28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
1 Samuel 15v22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offering and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
Romans 5v6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the God.
Leviticus 17v11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
Psalm 51v16-17 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give (it) : thou delightest not in burnt offering. 17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit and a contrite heart, O God thou wilt not despise.

Vegetarians, Vegans, Buddhists and Atheists find it difficult to understand why sacrifice has to be made to please God. Well vegetation (food) has to be sacrificed to be made into food to feed you daily, without food your body will not live even two months. Life is in the Blood, and sins have to be paid for by blood. Jesus died as a sacrifice for our sins, so that God’s justice is served and we can be with God again and be forgiven. Jesus paid for our sins, and bought our souls with his blood. Jesus’ blood gives eternal life. A Divine Spiritual blood transfusion.
