Blood Covenant of God
You hold in your hands a book that will open up to you one of the greatest themes in the Bible – the Blood Covenant that God has made with His people. You may at once think that there is nothing remarkable in this, for are there not countless studies available on the subject? As a matter of fact, there are not! I’ll warrant that many churchgoers have never heard a sermon or Bible study on this great concept! Yet the Bible recognises no acceptable way to make propitiation for human sin, except by the death of an appointed sacrifice.
Your author has no doubt about the efficacy of the Biblical promise, nor of the Biblical affirmation that “without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin”. His approach to the theme is fresh, creative, and covers ground that is often ignored.
Thorough research has enabled him to explore the ramifications of the idea of a covenant sealed by blood, not only in ancient Israel but also in other cultures. He demonstrates the place of the Blood Covenant in the history of redemption, in scripture, in apostolic times, and in the modern life of the church. Above all, he shows the power of this God-endorsed covenant in the life of each believer.
Our salvation both begins and continues here! Let us fervently trust in the blood of the everlasting covenant that God has made with us in Christ, by which alone we have open access to the very throne of heaven.
As the author shows, we should never question the truth of the old gospel song, “There is power, power, wonder-working power in the precious Blood of the Lamb!”
