TOMMY: After Abel, we get lots of other people. After the flood, Noah built an altar, offered to God a blood sacrifice. Abraham made a covenant, the blood covenant, shedding of blood through circumcision, the blood covenant. Exodus 12:6 and 7, “And you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. And he shall take of the blood and strike it on the two sides of the upper post of your house and the sides of your house.” Passover. Passover. The blood of the Lamb was put on the doorpost as a picture of the blood of Jesus and that Passover story still applies today. And the blood shall be taken, Exodus 12:13, “And the blood shall be for you a token upon the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you when I come and smite the land of Egypt.” If we apply the blood to the doorpost of our heart, of our heart, then through the blood of Jesus, we are delivered from sin, when we accept Jesus as our savior. Through the blood of Jesus, we can escape, escape sin, escape destruction, even escape death through the blood of Jesus. The blood offering that I taught you were substitutes to temporarily cover the sins; an animal had to die. This blood of these animals was a type or shadow, if you will, in the ‘Old’ about Jesus coming. Jesus’ blood did not cover, and does not cover today. Jesus’ blood cleanses us from all sin. Give Him praise because Jesus’ blood cleanses us from all sin; not cover us, but cleanse us. Genesis 22:2, “Take your son, thine only son Isaac, whom you love. Get thee in the land of Moriah and offer him, a burnt offering upon one of the mountains that I will show you and tell you.” “And Abraham said, ‘My son, God will provide Himself a lamb for the burn offering’: so they went of them together,” to that mountain. It’s a beautiful story of a father, you got to get this story, you’ve got to understand this story, this is a story of a father willing to give his son. You’ve got to hear that, you got to hear it in the Spirit: the father willing to give his son. This is the best illustration referring to God the Father willing to sacrifice His Son Jesus, His only begotten Son, like Isaac. The Son of Man came to earth. Jesus was ultimate, perfect, blood sacrifice.

Every year on the Day of Atonement, thousands of animals were brought on the Day of Atonement. They put their names on this-oh you’ve got to get this, beautiful story. On the Day of Atonement, I was told I had to bring a lamb, or a goat, or a pigeon dove, or an animal to the high priest. In order to do that, in order for the Combs family to get credit, if you will, okay, or in order for the Combs family to fulfill that, that I’m supposed to bring this on the Day of Atonement, I had to put my name, you’ve got to hear me, had to put my name on my sacrifice. So I would put a, my name on, around the neck of our own– the animal in some way so that the high priest would know the Combs family has brought their lamb. So my name was on the sacrifice. You’re not hearing me, are you? My name was on the sacrifice, on the Day of Atonement. The name was on Jesus. The name was on the sacrifice. This is my Son, this is Jesus, this is Jesus. The name was there. Just like in the day He fulfilled it, all the way to the ‘T’, they put their name year after year, but Jesus the perfect sacrifice, the blood was offered once, and forever for you and for me. “Neither by the blood of goats…” Hebrews 9:12, “Neither by the blood of goats, but by His own blood He entered into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for you and for me.” Give God praise. Somebody praise Him for the blood, the blood, the blood, the blood. The blood, say the blood! The blood! The blood of Jesus.

In order for sin to be taken away, not the blood of bulls or goats, pigeons, but the blood of Jesus, under the New Covenant, Jesus washed and cleansed us from sin, by the blood. On the New Covenant, the blood of Jesus became the final blood sacrifice, the final blood sacrifice. At three o’clock, they would bring a lamb; the high priest would bring the final lamb, the paschal lamb, the lamb that represented all the people because like today, if I told every one of you to bring a lamb tomorrow, I probably wouldn’t get everyone of you to bring a lamb and they knew that. So they had a beautiful paschal lamb. Perfect in every way, no blemish on this lamb. Now where would they go get the lambs anyway? Where were the lambs born and raised? Somebody help me preach. Bethlehem. They would go to Bethlehem and get the lambs, or the shepherds would raise the lambs and bring them back to Jerusalem. I didn’t hear that. Bethlehem, bring them back to Jerusalem.
