Blood is the life giving source that flows through the heart and veins of every human being that breaths the breath of life that God breath into mans nostrils and then man became a living soul.
Shortly after God made man and woman they ate of the fruit of the tree God commanded them not too and God killed a animal and gave Adam and Eve coats of skin to cloth them before God put them out of the garden of Eden. (Genesis 3:21).
In Genesis 3:21, was the first recorded event of the shed of blood for the good of mankind in history on this planet we call earth.
Not long after Adam and Eve were thrown out of the garden of Eden,Adam, Eve had two sons, Cain the oldest and Able the youngest.
In Genesis 4:8, Cain slew his brother Able and in verse ten God ask Cain what has he done because God could hear Ables blood crying from the ground.
In Genesis 4:8 is the second time that blood was shed and recorded in the bible since man was made and the creation of the earth.
Since the time of Adam and Eve and Cain and Able you can find many occurrence's of blood being shed throughout the bible in the old testament and the new testament.
All through the old testament the people had to offer blood sacrifices for the remission of the sins they had committed to receive forgiveness and to be able to make heaven their home after they died.
There is one occurrence in the new testament were blood was shed that changed the future of all humanity and made it possible for everyone to have the chance to have eternal life and make heaven their home.
The blood that was shed was the blood of Jesus, who came to earth in the form of a man, to be tempted, tested, crucified, die, and rise out of the grave on the third day to be the only lord and savior that can forgive sins and offer eternal life in heaven to live forever.
You can find the occurrence of the death of Jesus in Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John and if you read each book you will see each author gives their own account of what happened on the day Jesus was crucified.
Even though each author gives a slightly different account of the day Jesus was crucified, all four gospels do document the Crucifixion of Jesus, death of Jesus, and the resurrection of Jesus.
The death and blood of Jesus was so powerful that day, that the eath did quake, the rocks rent, the veil of the temple was rent in twine from the top to the bottom, graves were opened, and many of the saints who were dead arose from the the grave. ( Mathew 27:50-Mathew 27:52).
At the last supper in Mathew 26:28, Jesus said this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Since the death and resurrection of Jesus, blood has been shed by many people who have been murdered or executed and sentenced to death, and blood will continue to be shed until one day when Jesus will cast Satan into the lake of fire to spend eternity with his followers to be tormented for ever and ever. (Revelation 20:10) (Revelation 20:15).
In closing the blood that runs through your heart and veins gives you life, power, and strength to live a healthy life here on earth, but only the blood of Jesus can wash away your sins and make you white as snow. (Isaiah 1:18).
