WITHOUT THE BLOOD
Please allow me to begin this sermon by making this statement up front.
No blood, no life. No physcial blood, no physcial life. No divine blood, no spiritual life.
The blood is sacred to God. Because of
the life sustaining and life giving quality of blood, it is important as to its origin. The blood from animals does not contain
the quality to sustain human life. One study says that the basic qualities in the blood of humans is not even found in animals
Human blood is different than monkey's etc.
God had to provide a higher quality of blood
to provide eternal life to fallen man. In the garden of Eden, God slew animals as a covering for man's sin. From that day
till Calvary the blood of animals was shed to offer sacrifice for the sins of man. However all that sacrifice would
accomplish was to roll back mans sins for one year. God provided the sacrifice needed in the form of His Son, Jesus Christ
to "wash away the sins of fallen man".
He, Jesus, was born of woman, but not of man. It is from the father that the child
receives the blood. Howell's textbook of Physiology "quote" The blood of the child comes from father and gives live
to the unborn infant. The blood of the mother only nourishes--the two sources of blood never come together and are never mixed
It is also from the father that the diseases of the blood are inherited. Having said that, do you
understand how improtant the virgin birth of Jesus Christ is? We must always preach the virgin birth of Christ. Always preach
about and talk about Mary being a virgin!!!!! Having had no sexual relations with man until after the birth of Jesus, the
God Man, the Savior of man kind.
The blood that flowed through the veins of the body of the virgin born Jesus Christ was
not ordinary human blood. It was Divine blood through the miracle of the virgin birth that flowed through His veins. It was
that Divine blood that did not nor could not know sin that was shed for you and for me.

Dr. Jacob Chamberlain, an early missionary to India, recalls that while preaching to a group who had
come to bathe in the "sacred stream" of the Ganges, a man joined them who had crawled many agonizing miles on his knees and
elbows to reach that spot. The poor exhausted soul made his prayer to Gunga, and then slipped into the water but emerged with
the same conviction of sin as before. The fear of death still tugged at his heart. Then he heard Chamberlain tell the wonderful
story of grace and how Christ died on the cross to rescue needy sinners. With new hope the man staggered to his feet, clasped
his hands together, and cried, "Oh, that's what I need! Forgiveness and peace!" The missionary soon led him to Jesus.
