THE BLOOD THE CROSS 4-2-21 VIDEO LAMB OF GOD SACRIFICED 2
Blood represents life. Without blood there can be no life. There is a cost associated with the blood sacrifice it is the life of the one sacrifice. The Father gave the life physical and spiritual of his Son to pay the price for the sin of mankind. The blood represents freedom from bondage. The importance of the blood is that it transports oxygen from the lungs to all the tissues in the body. It absorbs and transports heat throughout the body. Blood is a mixture of plasma and blood cells. Jesus gave the sacrifice of his blood for all mankind. His blood opens the portals of heaven.

14 And this day shall be to you for a memorial. You shall keep it as a feast to the Lord throughout your generations, keep it as an ordinance forever. AMP
Rom 5:7-9. It is most unlikely that someone would die for another person, Even if they are righteous; yet it is remotely possible that someone can brave such devotion that one would actually lay down ones on life in an effort to save the life of an extraordinary good person.

offering sacrifices there is a remembrance of sins, the memory of sins committed is revived by the sacrifices,
NT MEMORY- "in memory of" but in an affectionate calling of the Person Himself to mind; (b) not of the "remembrance" of sins, what is indicated, in regard to the sacrifices under the Law, is not simply an external bringing to "remembrance," but an awakening of mind
