Default The Blood of Jesus

Hebrews 10 centers Christ. Here is the offering of Christ body once for all. Under the law, it is required that he who sinned will make an offering to God and the blood sacrifice covereth only. There is no way to wash or take away sins. For this reason Christ sacrificed on the cross of calvary is superior and indeed a perfect sacrifice over the many sacrifices of the Old Covenant or the Law. The law then was shadow of good things to come and that was Christ. Because of Christ offering of his body and blood sacrifice, believers of Christ become a priest and Christ being the High Priest, in which we have the boldness to enter into the holiest over the house of God.

Hebrews 10:10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
Hebrews 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
Hebrews 10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
Hebrews 10:19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
Hebrews 10:21 And having an high priest over the house of God;

Having therefore Christ, we can draw near in a full assurance of faith and we can say that our profession of our faith does not waver. The application of Hebrews 10:19-25 is that we can now have fellowship with one another provoking unto love and good works because of what Christ done and certainly we can do that in our fellow believers in the church. This is why we need not forsake the assembly as the manner of some is.. I don't really believe in a man who says he beleives the Bible yet not practicing what is taught in the Bible.

Hebrews 10:24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
