The Blood of Christ

“Yet you are he who took me from the womb; you made me trust you at my mother’s breasts. On you was I cast from my birth, and from my mother’s womb you have been my God,” Psalm 22:9-11.

So, it has been said that our father was an Amorite and our mother a Hittite. Our ancestry and birth is in the land of Canaan. Our cord was not cut off from this fallen gentile state. But we were certainly separated from the Divine. When I consider my human ancestry, there are an awful lot of reasons to despair! My bloodlines are not pure. They are not free from arguments and sins. My ancestors have struggled with the Divine all the way back to the Ad’am in Eden. My ancestral ties leave me little hope for reconnecting with the Creator. I have little faith that the heart and blood of my fathers and mothers could reconcile me to the Living God. I will have to seek another source. Another history. Another ancestry.

“….how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God,” Hebrews 9:14.

The shed blood of Christ is so much more than a deadly experience. The shed blood is not merely a liquid drained from the body of a historically sacrificed man. No… .it is an active source! The blood of Christ has become the available bloodline for the human race. It is a living substance that spiritually restores. It is our history, if we will receive it. It is our ancestry, if we will accept it. We have the opportunity, as separated humans, to be reconnected to the ancestry of God. To be sons and daughters of God. To receive the full ancestry and inheritance of a pure, eternal bloodline. The bloodline that ran through the veins of Christ. He is now our available history. He is now our ancestry. He is now our eternal source of Life.

We must be Born Again! “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God,” John 3:3. We must receive a new bloodline that cleanses our DNA. We must receive the very blood and Life of Christ. Born into a new family. Of a new ancestry and heritage. The blood of Christ cleanses us of our ancestral human history. We are cleansed of the contentions within the heart of the Amorite and the Hittite. We are cut off from our gentile bloodline and engrafted into the bloodline of the Son of God. We are born into a new history, ancestry and inheritance!

This blood of Christ works itself so deeply into our hearts and minds, that it eternally and spiritually purifies our conscience. We are not even conscious of the old bloodline. We are no longer living among the ancestral arguments. We do not posses any real awareness or identity with the old life that ran through our fallen ancestral veins. We have a new Life, a new Consciousness, a new Birth Family, a new History, a new Perspective of absolutely everything.

From the Spiritual womb of baptism in His Holy Spirit, you have been washed by His Blood and are no longer conscious of the argumentative works of your human ancestral bloodline. You are a New Creation!
