The Blood is what cleanses you of all your past sins, present sins, and future sins. It is really the truth. But you must keep asking for forgiveness on a regular bases.

ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace
1John 1:7 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
Rev 1 To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, 6and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Fatherto him be glory and power for ever and ever!

The Blood of the Lamb of God Jesus Christ shed on the Cross is the only thing that washes away sin. There is no stain left. All we do is ask Jesus to forgive us, and repent. The Blood takes everything away as if it never existed. It is like the Blood comes along and covers the sins. They are then blotted up by the Blood and all you can then see is the Blood.

Donna:What blood did Jesus use to wash away the sins of The thief on the cross, one that felt SORRY or the one that scoffed.So if blood plays such an important part,in the forgiveness of sins where does contrition come in & the firm purpose of ammendment.Why not forgive the sins of the thief that scoffed,or wash away his sins too??

The shed blood of Jesus washes away our sin. The confession is what the believer has to do, the washing is what Jesus did for us at Calvary. If there was no shedding of the blood, the confession wouldn't wash away the transgression, right?
---Donna9759 on 4/24/07


The blood. Without the washing of the blood of Jesus Christ, we would still be unclean and sinners. Remember in the OT when Pharoah said the first born would die? Well Moses got a lamb, which are pure. and took it's blood and smeared it on the outside of the door. Without the blood of the lamb, death would come in. With the blood, death will passover.

The LOVE of Jesus Christ for us pitiful sinners.

Mike:What happened in the OT was to identify between Israelites & Egyptians.RED sea? is it sme symbol of red that you refer too.we are talking about sin & salvation the difference of forgiving & being forgiven
---Emcee on 9/28/06




The "blood" is very crucial. The life is in the blood.
To be saved is to be "under the blood".
Do you ever wonder why the Israelites in bondage in Egypt were instructed to put the blood on the doorposts? Does it have any implications that the Israelites escaped through the "Red Sea"? The same Red Sea that brought death to the people that rebelled against God's word.
---mike on 9/28/06


You people are taking the blood thing too serious. Could it mean something metaphorically. Mark 14:24 reads that Jesus is giving his blood away BEFORE he actually shed it. And do we literally drink his blood John 6:52-54? Does the testament have blood (Hebrews 9:19-21)? Hebrews 10:28-30, Hebrews 13:19-21.

What does the word "blood" really mean?

Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
---Barbara on 9/27/06


So the general consensus is that the blood of christ washes away our sins contrition is not necesary?Then why did HE say from the cross:"Father forgive them for they Know not what they DO" What FORGIVENESS was Jesus refering to.& why forgiveness when no transgression? or was there transgression!
They had killed an innocent man.transgresed the law!

John, my friend, what Bible are you reading? Because my Bible certainly does not say that everyone should partake of the Lord's Supper.

The Blood of Jesus that was shed by Him on the Cross is the only thing that washes sin away. The Blood literally covers the sins and blots them right away as if they had never existed.
---Helen_5378 on 9/26/06


Lets go to the O.T where we see the passover lambs blood applied on the door posts. Could everyone apply the blood or just some chosen perfected ones? Everyone. And those who didn't had no part.
And at the Lords supper, who did jesus say should partake? Everyone, and those who don't have no part.
---john on 9/26/06


Seems like there is 2 kinds here. Some say we can't come like we are, we are not good enough so we have to change first and really mean it fully and understand it fully before we qualify for the blood to wash away sin.
Some say come as you are, the blood is for anyone who will come. Jesus will help you get better. His grace is greater than sin.
---john on 9/26/06


I'm saddened by hearing of the degree of remorse that some think is necessary in order to have the blood of Jesus wash my sin away. If God expects us to forgive our brother 70x7 in one day for his sin against us then surely God will do the same. There is not one of you who could come contrite enough in the first place. Those 3000 who were saved on the day of Pentecost were just like all of us today. They came as they were. Jesus did the rest.

What can wash away my sins, nothing but the blood of Jesus.
---John_Paul on 9/26/06


Madison &Donna:: Is Jesus's blood a commodity flowing like a stream & do you have to go to that stream to wash or do you have to confess& be contrite before the wash.What about the those who were unable to wash before His crucifiction & death?So it is something YOU have to do before you are washed clean.Its just not Faith alone.
---Emcee on 9/26/06


john 3-16 tells of what you are asking.for God so loved the world that he gave his only son ,that whosoever might believe in him should not perish but have everlasting life.jesus said I,am the way the truth the life no one comes to the father but by me.

Nothing but the blood of Jesus, unless you are church of Christ then it nothing but the water of the creek.
---Rev_Herb on 9/26/06


Truly it's the sacrifice of Jesus.
It's available to those who repent, and realized in those who continue in the truth.
Our contrition and repentance is only the condition that he can and will work with, but he does the work. Otherwise there's a reason for men to take pride in their salvation.
---Pharisee on 9/26/06


What can wash away my sin? ....Nothing but the Blood of Jesus, as we yield to God's Truth, humble ourselves to Him/His Word, thus bringing forth fruits worthy of repentance, the Divine Blood of His only begotten Son, washes away all of our sins (1 John 1:7). Through Obedience to God(PSALM 119:11) and godly Faith, that precious Blood purges us from all sin and disobedience,and empowers us to resist sin, as we yield to the Holy Ghost. Now that is God's Grace! How Amazing indeed!
---Mrs._Morgan on 9/26/06


PART ONE:
Because of the blood of Jesus Father God is able to pardon all who will come to him in repentance. There is no distinction in scripture between perfect or imperfect contrition. Psalms 51:17, "The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise."
To express this truth we use the term "washed in the blood" See Rev. 1:5 but with out repentance there can be no forgiveness.

PART TWO:
For the sake of non Catholics reading this the Catholic Church draws a distinction between "perfect contrition" - a sorrow for sin that stems from the awareness of having offended God and "imperfect contrition" - a sorrow for sin that stems from the fear of hell.
