At the fall the blood of humanity became corrupted by sin and consequently death. The pure sinless bloodline has been contaminated! Every human being born hence possesses this impure bloodline that is susceptible to sin, sickness disease, curses, poverty and death! (Romans 5:17)
Therefore, anyone with this impure bloodline no matter how righteous or morally upright he is in his deeds is still considered a sinner! For our righteousness is but a filthy rag before God! For there is none righteous before him with an impure bloodline.
‘As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one;’ – Romans 3:10
And then how can a clean thing come out of an unclean thing?
‘Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? No one!’ – Job 14:14
No matter how noble the deed, a corrupted bloodline will only breed corruption! The noble deeds of a slave will never qualify him for the throne. It is what flows in the blood that determines what comes to him. If there is no royalty in the bloodline there is no throne in his future!
This is where the blood offered in the old covenant fails, it only covers our sins but can't wash them away! However, the blood of the new covenant not only washes away our sin, it also changes our bloodline so that we are incorporated into God's family! (Hebrews 9:1-15 Ephesians 2:13-20) Hallelujah!
‘But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone’(Ephesians 3:13-20)
We partake of the blood of Jesus through a process of spiritual grafting and so we have God's life and DNA. In our blood is royalty, no wonder he says in 1 Peter 2:9 that through his blood flowing in us we can reign on the earth! Through his bloodline we have a heritage of royalty. Our bloodline therefore determines our heritage!
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy (1 Peter 2:9)
That superior bloodline we have has no room for sin sickness disease failure poverty, it is the pure blood of the lamb! In that bloodline there is no room for sickle cell anaemia, no AIDS or any blood related disease! Those disease drops off your body now in Jesus name! Amen!
The shedding of his blood represents the outpouring of his love not just for the remission of our sins but in changing our bloodline and heritage in Christ! This is the significance of the blood, walk and revel in this knowledge.
