EXPERIENCING AND ENJOYING "BODY-LIFE"
This is post #14 on the blood atonement of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have already looked at the blood bringing about 12 wonderful Biblical life-changing truths. If you not done so it would be a great advantage to you if went back over the first 13 posts of this study.
The 13th truth concerning the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ is the believers right to "BODY MEMBERSHIP" or "BODY-LIFE". In the Old Testament when a covenant was made it was made through the blood of a turtledove, lamb, or some other accepted animal.
The covenant was sealed through the shedding of blood. The first Covenant Passover was given while the people of God was in bondage in Egypt by the shedding of blood and having that blood applied to the doorposts. This is called the Feast of Passover in the Old and New Testament. By the way, the Feast of Passover IS NOT Easter. Easter is not of God and should not be confused with PASSOVER, which points to and recognizes the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
All who went under the covering of the blood entered into something called body membership. All of a sudden all differences between them seemed small compared to the greater need of deliverance from the bondage of Egypt.
Because of the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ we have been THRUST into membership together in His body. We must contend, strive, fight for fellowship because we, the true believers, are all brothers and sisters in the Lord.
Our DNA is all the same as we have all been adopted into the same family and have the same Daddy/Father. We have our differences and contend with one another, but what if we all looked at the greater need. What if we all looked at the need for final deliverance from Egypt (the world) as one people, one voice, one man, with Christ the Head.
