I guess u are saying Christ did NOT come to do away with sin. At least you admit it.
Doesnt the bible say Christ came to do away with sin? Maybe Im wrong?
Question..Why did Christ come? I would like to know your Gospel.

Acts 5:1-10
Ananias and Sapphira, both carried out dead.
They lied to the Holy Spirit...."filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost and to keep back part of the price of the land?"

duane, that line of reasoning is false.

Acts 8:9-23

Repent therefore of this thy wickeness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.
For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.

Word of God tells us to stay in the race and don't fall away. Without repenting, one can be far away and not know. One can lose their crown. The Bible says that our crowns can be taken away.
New Christians just off the streets know this by the Holy Spirit.
Reread Ananias and Sapphira. Both lied and both were carried out dead.
How did that happen according to your theology, duane?

Their hearts weren't right with God. This couple lied.

Judgment Day, even the believer has one.

The bible says Christ came to do away with sin, as HE did. Who in this blog will deny this fact?
---duane on 10/24/07

Yes, we are under New Testament covenant, but didn't Jesus say that he came not to do away with the law, but to fulfill it?

Many times I like to start my prayers with the following statement. Heavenly Father I come to you under the righteousness of the shed blood of your son The Lord Jesus Christ. I do this because I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the shed blood of The Lord Jesus Christ has the immediate and complete attention of our heavenly Father.

To "plead the blood" simply means that we understand that it is ONLY through the shed blood of Jesus that we can:
Be saved
Approach God
Be healed
Be delivered
Recieve from God any blessings
Pray on behalf of others for God's intervention in their lives

When we use the expression "plead the blood" is is an expression of all this and in that sense is indeed biblical.

"Pleading the Blood" is scriptural way of enforcing the victory of Calvary. We are bringing before God the suffering and atoning death of His Son. It means to stand on the rights that are ours "legally" through the shed blood of Jesus. Jesus included us in a Blood Covenant He made with God. Eph.1:7; Col. 1:14 "in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins". Rev. 1:5: "To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood,".

I've asked this question myself and always been answered by an extensive list of Scriptures about the blood of Jesus and the many powers and blessings it represents. I ABSOLUTELY AGREE with them all. But the phrase itself "plead the blood" confuses me a little. I didn't grow up hearing it. "Plead" is an intransitive verb so this is a very strange usage. Does the phrase come directly from scripture? Or is its' use mostly a matter of tradition?

Ex.12:1-30 The Passover Lamb/Feast marked 10th plaque which set Israel from bondage.They took 1 year old defect free lamb,and killed it,at twilight they painted the top and sides of the doorposts as instructioned in Ex.12:13(shortened) The blood shed shall be to you a token upon the houses,I shall pass over you,plaque not be on you,when I destroy Egypt.It was for protection,as is Pleading the Blood of the Spotless Lamb that was slain for sin,Jesus,the final scarifice,who set us free from sin and death.

There is power, power wonderworking power in the blood of the lamb! I thank God for His son's blood which He shed for OUR sins! Yes, I believe it's biblical.
---Peter on 12/3/05

I plead the Blood of Jesus every day and it works for me! I have been saved since 1982. There is power in the shed blood of Jesus Christ our Lord!
---John on 12/3/05

i had a car accident and was not saved yet. God sent my next door neighbour(can you believe it,that christians lived right next door) anyway, her and her husband prayed over one of my broken legs that was intensely painful. They pled the blood of Jesus. Today the worse leg is 100% pain free and the other is still giving me problems. :) Prasie be to God! :)
---natasha on 12/3/05

Hebrews 12:24 contrasts the Blood of Jesus with Abel's blood - "the sprinkled blood that SPEAKS a better word than the blood of Abel." Where Abel's blood cried vengeance, Jesus' blood cries mercy. In the OT, the Mercy seat within the Holy of Holies was sprinkled with the blood of bulls and goats. When the high priest went behind the veil, he would have been stricken dead had he not offered blood.
---DoryLory on 12/2/05

Similarly, we can enter "heavenly places in Christ" only because of the Blood of Jesus.

To plead, the Blood of Jesus is to confess to God that we are depending wholly on His mercy. When we plead the Blood of Jesus, it pleads for us, because it is "Speaking Blood." It speaks Mercy from the Mercy seat in Heaven where Jesus is seated with the Father.

We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11).
---DoryLory on 12/2/05

I don't believe it is biblical for this day and age as we are living out of the New Testament and not the Old Testament. When Jesue died for us, He also removed all 'rules/regulations and rituals' that the Old Testament had put in place so no, "pleading the blood" isn't biblical in a New Testament sense.

The last verse and chorus of "No Other Plea"
by Lidie H. Edmunds, says:

My great Physician heals the sick,
The lost He came to save;
For me His precious blood He shed,
For me His life He gave.

I need no other argument,
I need no other plea,
It is enough that Jesus died,
And that He died for me.
