Excellent question: Why is it that blood abolishes our sin?
Rom. 3:23 For ALL have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
Rom. 6:23 For the wages of sin is death...
Hebrews 9:22 ...without sheddng of blood is no remission (of sin).
Sin is against God Himself. Trespass is against other persons. Iniquity is against
your children to the 3rd and the 4th generations (Exodus 20:5).
God the Father has no experiental knowledge of sin, it is totally foreign
to His nature. Even when Christ BECAME sin for us on the cross, the Father turned His face from the only begotten. The
relationship was broken for the first time in millions, perhaps billions of years.
When, not if, you sin against God, this sin separates you from God. This broken relationship
with God leads to trespass against your neighbors, which leads to broken relationships with your own seed. You have
no annoniting from God to bless your relationships and so all your relationships are cursed (cursed simply means separate
from God). The sin of the fathers is passed to the children (y chromosone defect) to the 3rd and 4th generation.

year to purchase and present a perfect white lamb, without spot or blemish or any such thing. All sacrifices had the
blood ritually removed, the fat was burned on the altar, certain portions were gifted to the priests and the rest had to be
totally consumed by the entire family at the annual passover meal. They ate it standing and dressed for travel indicating
they had no permanent posession on this planet and were waiting for their God to come and take them away to their permanent
All of this, thru the centuries, was to teach God's Chosen People to be prepared when the REAL
passover would walk among them Full Of Grace And Truth, but when He came they rejected Him. But He was the Lamb Slain
From The Foundation Of The World and He completed the salvation of all creation by allowing His blood to be shed in 7 places
before and during His sacrificial agony on the cross of calvary. Before He gave up the ghost on the cross He said "It
Man's sin against God was paid for once and for all time and eternity. There is therefore
now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit (Rom. 8:1).
