What Is The Blood Of Christ

Many Christians use the phrase 'the blood of Jesus covers all my sins'. Where does it say this in the bible? I find it says that His blood cleanses but cannot find that it covers or that it is a covering.

The phrase used was coined and means Nothing.But is meant to imply- Forgiveness of sins- By use of the term "wash away my sins with Your precious blood."A figurative part of speech implying cleanse me of My sins.

The correctness of this phrase has some credibility in these two verses from Romans 4:7-8" 7 Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin. Of course today our sins are not only covered(as in the Old Testament Jewish practices) today our sins are washed away by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

What good would it do to just cover them?
Unfinished work would cover them but finished work would eradicate them. The Bible says that they are blotted out. I'm also interested in seeing if anyone finds that the blood covers.
Rom.3:25, 1John 2:2, and 1John 4:10. All speak of Jesus' blood being the satisfactory payment (propitiation) for our sin and not only ours but of the whole world. As far as the Father is concerned, all sin has been paid for, not just covered.

The blood covering is a type. Jesus is called the Lamb of God. Lambs were used as sacrifices to God and their blood was used to cover the sins of people. Jesus gave up His life for us, i.e. shed His blood to cover our sins. PLEASE don't think we are to use actual blood or to infer that Jesus's blood was held and poured out for our sins. This was a type used as He used so many to explain life to His followers.

onely the blood of Jesus is our lifeline. No other blood is.

Emg. #5 8) The saving, reconciling and purifying power of the blood of Christ is continually appropriated to believers as they come to God through Him (Hebrews 7:25; 10:22; 1 John 1:7).

The word "cover" means "To place something upon or over, so as to protect or conceal". But the word cleanse means "To free from dirt, defilement, or guilt; purge or clean".Its more better to say Christ blood cleanse us instead of "Christ blood cover all my sins".

Remember how the Israelites covered the lintel and door posts with the blood of the lamb in Moses' day? Those who applied the blood, the destroyer angel passed over that house and did not enter, but those without the blood the destroyer entered and killed the firstborn posterity. So too those who apply the Blood of the Lamb of God to themselves will be protected from the destroyer entering therein.

"You have forgiven the wrong of your people; you have covered all their sin. Selah. Blessed they whose wrongs are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Let him know, that he which converts the sinner from the error of his way will save a life from death, and will cover a multitude of sins. Psalm 85:2; Romans 4:7; I Peter 5:20.

Emg.#4 5) His blood sanctifies the people of God (Hebrews 13:12; 1 John 1:7-10). 6) His blood opens the way for believers to come directly before God through Him in order to find grace, mercy, help and salvation (Hebrews 7:25; 10:19; Eph 2:13, 18).

7) His blood is a guarantee of all the promsies of the new covenant (Hebrews 10:29; 13:20; Mat 26:28; 1 Cor 11:25).

Emg.#3. His blood Christ acomplished the following: 1) His blood forgives the sins of all who repent and believe (Mat 26:28). 2) His blood ransoms all believers from the power of Satan and evil powers (Acts 20:28; Eph 1;7; 1 Pet 1:18-19; Rev 5:9; 12:11). 3) His blood justifies all who believe in Him (Rom 3:24-25).

Emg. #2 Also read the following verses: Ephesians 1:7, 1 John 1:7, Romans 5:9, Hebrews 13:12, Hebrews 9:14, Romans 5:1, 1 Peter 2:24, 1 John 1:9, Hebrews 10:19.

The blood of Christ of Jesus is central to the NT concept of redemption (1 Cor 10:16; 11:27; Eph 2:13; 1 Pet 1:2; Rev 7:14; 12:11). On the Cross Christ shed His innocent blood in order to remove our sins and to reconcile us with God. (Hebrews 5:8; Rom 5:19; Phil 2:8).

Emg.Have you read Col 1:14 and Eph 1:7?The word Redemption occurs three times in the book of Ephesians and has the meaning of "deliverance with a price".The price paid by Christ was costly:"through His blood".Paul reveals in this book that God's provision of "redemption" in Christ covers the full range of human need-Our need of forgiveness, deliverance, reconciliation, community, acceptance, order, security, hope, and victory in our confilct with Satan and his forces.

When I hear people say God sees us through the Blood or that he sees us only covered, I think they are still in OT thinking. His Blood has opened the way into the Holy of Holies. Never done before. We are washed in the Blood. We can come boldly to the throne of Grace (never done before) as a New Creation. Hebrews 10 says, through the veil, that is through His Flesh. When Jesus Died on the Cross, the veil in the Temple was torn,! The Way to God is opened. We come now, In Christ as a New Creation In Him.
