Hebrews 9:1-14, verses 12-14 text.
How do the blood and the resurrection go together? Without the shedding of blood there would be no need of the resurrection. Acts 20:28, “which He purchased with His own blood.”
What did Jesus purchase? His local church. Acts 20:17, “the church is EklesiaMore was purchased on Calvary than your salvation.
Isaiah 53:4-5, “Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: But He was wounded (tormented) for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.”
So, He purchased more than our salvation and church, but also our grief, sorrow, iniquity and healing. “Which He hath purchased with His own blood.”
TWO THINGS are necessary for a purchase:
1. You have to have money.
2. It has to be paid in the right place.
You can write a check, but must take it to the right place.
Take your power and phone bill for example. If you mail your phone bill to the power company neither bill is paid.
Now follow me: If Jesus purchased us with His own blood:
1. He had to pay the price.
2. He had to take it to the right place.
You will remember that the priest had to go into the Holy of Holies once a year to make atonement for his people.
The price had to be paid – the lamb had to be sacrificed, and the blood had to be put in the right place – on the mercy seat.
