Verse:

Matt. 26:28 “For this is My blood of the covenant, which is being poured out for many for forgiveness of sins.”

Excerpts:

The blood of Christ has redeemed us. First Peter 1:18 and 19 say that we have been redeemed with the precious blood of Christ.

After man fell, the way to the tree of life was closed. Genesis 3:24 says that God placed “at the east of the garden of Eden cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.” Hallelujah, the blood of Christ brings us back to the tree of life! Through the blood of Christ, we may enjoy the tree of life, which is God Himself as life to us.

The blood of Christ also leads the believers to the waters of life. In John 7:37 the Lord Jesus said that all those who thirst may come to Him and drink. Eventually, out of our innermost being will flow rivers of living water. We all have experienced drinking the water of life through the blood of Christ. Day by day, because of His blood, we may eat of the tree of life and drink of the water of life. According to Revelation 7:14, those who have “washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb” will be guided by the Lamb to “springs of waters of life”(v. 17). This indicates that for eternity we shall enjoy the living water through the blood of Christ.

Finally, the blood of Christ brings us into the temple of God, where we shall enjoy Him for eternity. Those who are brought into God’s temple through the cleansing of the blood of Christ are pictured in Revelation 7:15 and 16: “Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple; and He who sits upon the throne shall spread His tabernacle over them. They shall not hunger anymore, neither shall they thirst anymore, neither shall the sun beat upon them, nor any heat.” This is the eternal enjoyment of God in His temple made possible because of the blood of Christ, the blood of the new covenant. This precious blood brings us into the enjoyment of God Himself as our life and life supply for eternity. (Life-Study of Exodus, Chapter 79)
