Renewed Hallelujah

  1. THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST

    Without Jesus shedding His blood on the cross, all doctrines concerning salvation become irrelevant.


    Hebrews 9:22 ....without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.


    Hebrews 10:19 Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus,


    Are men saved because of God's grace? Yes. (Ephesians 2:8) Grace would not be available if not for the shed blood of Jesus.


    Did Jesus sanctify and cleanse the church by the washing of water with the word? Yes. (Ephesians 5:26) The church cannot and is not sanctified except for the fact that Jesus shed His blood.


    Hebrews 13:12 Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people through His own blood, suffered outside the gate.


    Do sinners have to repent and be immersed in water to have sins forgiven? Yes. (Acts 2:38)Without Jesus shedding His blood on the cross, repentance and baptism for forgiveness of sins would not be accessible to mankind.


    Romans 5:9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.


    Did Jesus add the repentant baptized believers to His church?Yes. (Acts 2:38,41,47) Without the shed blood of Jesus there would be no church of Christ to be added to.


    Acts 20:28 Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.


    Are we saved because we confess that Jesus is Lord and that God raised Him from the dead? Yes. (Romans 10:9-10) This confession would be meaningless if Jesus had not shed His blood.


    Revelation 1:5 and Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood---


    WHY AND HOW ARE WE SAVED?


    We are saved because of God's grace. (Ephesians 2:8)
    We are saved because of our faith. (John 3:16)
    We are saved by confessing Jesus Christ. (Romans 10:9-10)
    We are saved because we are immersed in water. (Mark 16:16)
    We are saved because we repent of sins and turn toward God. (Acts 2:38)


    AT THE POINT OF WATER BAPTISM, THE BLOOD OF JESUS WASHES AWAY MEN'S SINS, MEN ARE BORN OF THE SPIRIT, MEN BECOME BORN AGAIN, MEN ARE SAVED, THE LORD ADDS THE FORGIVEN TO HIS CHURCH.


    WITHOUT THE SHED BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST, SALVATION WOULD BE UNATTAINABLE!
