“The Shed Blood Of Jesus Christ, The Son Of God, Makes Him The Only Qualified Saviour For The Entire Fallen Human Race”.
“For the life of the flesh is in the blood” [Leviticus 17:11].
Jesus Christ is not just “qualified”, HE is also truly and totally “indispensable”.
So just what and how does that make Jesus Christ the “Only Qualified Saviour”?
What makes Him that special? Why can HE ‘Alone’ claim that role? These are good questions.
To begin with, Christ Jesus had to be born sinless.
And then he had to remain sinless for his entire life by thought, word and deed.
Facing every temptation the devil tried to put in His path, He did not give in and remained without sin [Matthew 4:1-11].
Adam and his wife Eve were going to be the progenitors of the entire human race.
However, unlike Jesus Christ, they succumbed to the first temptation that came their way. They sinned and fell.
This fall of Adam birthed the sin nature, which would now be a part of every human being to follow [Romans 5:12].
Now every person on this planet, that was going to be born, would have that sin nature in them.
That is exactly what has been happening, right down to this very day and hour.
All men from Adam to this day are born with Adam’s sinful nature. Hence they are therefore subject to the curse and eternal death.
Globally, according to the 2018 statistics, there are about two hundred and fifty babies being born each minute.
That is, about four babies being born every second and they are all birthed in sin or with that ‘Adamic sin nature’.
So coming back to Jesus Christ, how could He be born ‘without’ this sin nature and yet come through this sinful human race?
The Sinless Birth Of Jesus Christ
Here is an amazing fact.
God could yet bring to pass the birth of the sinless Christ child from a normal sinful human being Mary.
Always remember Mary was not sinless. Like every other human being, she was also born with that sin nature.
However, she could yet give birth to a sinless child, Jesus. And this Child would not pick up anything of that human element of the sin nature.
“Sinful heredity” is transmitted through the blood and not through the flesh.
Even though Jesus received His fleshly body from a sinful race, which is through Mary, HE could yet remain sinless.
That would only be possible if not even one drop of blood of this sinful race entered His veins.
This way Jesus could be perfectly human ‘according to the flesh’ and yet ‘not have’ the blood of sinful humanity.
So How Would This Be Possible?
“With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible” [Matthew 19:26]
The virgin birth made this possible.
There is something here that we need to see.
The medical profession knows this, especially those who are embryologists, and those in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology.
The Origin Of Blood
Medical Science has established this fact concerning the origin of blood in a human being.
The blood which flows in an unborn child’s arteries and veins is ‘NOT’ derived from the mother.
It is produced within the body of the foetus itself only after the introduction of the male sperm.
An unfertilized ovum (egg) can never develop blood. This is because the female egg does not contain the element within itself, essential for the production of this blood.
This blood can develop only after the male element contained in the sperm has entered the ovum.
A very simple illustration of this is the egg of a hen.
The unfertilized egg of a hen is just an ovum, but on a much larger scale than a human ovum.
One can incubate this unfertilized hen’s egg, but it will never develop and no chick will be produced.
Rather, it will rather decay and rot.
But if that egg is fertilized by the introduction of the male sperm, it will then bring life into that egg.
After a few hours it will visibly develop with red streaks occurring in the egg denoting the presence of blood.
This can never occur and never does occur until the male sperm has united with the female ovum.
The male element in the sperm has now added ‘life’ to the egg.
Scripture Hath Already Declared It
Is it any wonder, that Scripture, well before medical science was even thought of, declared that, “life was in the blood”?
“For the life of the flesh is in the blood” [Leviticus 17:11].
And also [Leviticus 17:14], “For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof”.
Is it not amazing how medical science has lined up perfectly with the inerrant Word of God in the Bible?
So it is an established fact that there is no life in the egg until the male sperm unites with it.
And since “life is in the blood”, it logically follows that the male sperm is the very source of blood.
“IT IS THE VERY “SEED OF LIFE” ITSELF”.
Take your time……think it through! There is a lot at stake here.
No Mothers Blood
Since the male sperm is the very source of blood, the developing embryo in the mother’s womb stands alone.
It does not require any external administration of blood. Not even one drop.
This is according to medical science.
The mother provides the foetus (the unborn developing child) with nutritional elements needed for the growth of that little body.
All this takes place in the secret of her bosom.
BUT all the blood, which forms in that little body, is formed in the embryo itself.
This is only as a result of the contribution of the male parent.
From the time of conception to the time of birth, not one drop of blood passes from mother to child.
The ‘placenta’, which forms the union between mother and child, is specially constructed.
All the nutritional elements like proteins, fats, carbohydrates, salts, minerals and antibodies pass freely from mother to child.
The waste products of the child’s metabolism are also passed back to the mother’s circulation.
Even while all these exchanges take place, not a single drop of blood is actually interchanged in the process normally.
All the blood in that child is produced within the child itself, because of the introduction of the male sperm.
The mother contributes no blood at all.
The Creative Wisdom Of God
TRULY, the creative Wisdom of God Almighty is beyond our human comprehension.
Christ Jesus had to be born sinless, which He was through the virgin birth.
Supernaturally Fathered by God himself through a young Jewish virgin, Mary, Jesus was born sinless yet through a sinful race.
So how did all this happen?
Let’s go to the Bible account in [Matthew 1:18-20].
“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.
Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.“
A more detailed account is found in [Luke 1:26-35]
The Bible further tells us in [Matthew 1:22-23]:
Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
JESUS CHRIST The Perfect Sacrifice
Jesus Christ was the “Perfect Sacrifice”.
God, at some point in eternity past, set Him aside for this very purpose.
“Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you” [1 Peter 1:20].
HE was the Lamb without blemish. Peter, one of the apostles of the Jews tells us:
“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:” [1 Peter 1:18-19].
An Unchangeable Right Standing With God
The sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross for our sins, His burial and resurrection, permanently establishes our right standing with God.
The “Resurrection Of Christ Jesus” is the very hallmark of faith in the finished works of the cross.
And this right standing holds fast at any given moment in time when we believe.
God “no longer” sees us as a sinner. HE sees the Blood of Jesus Christ because He sees the demanded price paid in full.
God no longer sees us condemned because of sin any longer.
Jesus Christ took care of that part of us in full with no stone left unturned.
The Question Above All Questions
WE NOW need to ask ourselves the only relevant question, which is the question above all questions.
Do I accept by faith + nothing else, this completed work of Jesus Christ on the cross for me?
Do I believe by faith + nothing else that, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was buried and rose again for my justification?
Time is of the essence, as the clock keeps getting closer to midnight with each passing tick.
We really don’t want to leave this planet without CHRIST JESUS.
For without HIM, we’ll “never” make it.
