We Have The Messiah

The Blood of Christ

Links the New Testament with the Old Testament. God ordained
animal sacrifices in Israel to foreshadow the saving work of the 
promised Messiah, and for hundreds of years, the innocent animal
symbolically bore the guilt of sinner. When Christ came as the reality,
the promise was fulfilled. He became "the Lamb of God who takes away
 the sin of the world." For some believers, however, the blood of Christ
 has been associated with a lifetime of emotional experiences. They have
grown up with the idea that there was a special power in red liquid that
circulated through Jesus' mortal body. This mysticism is not biblical! The
 "blood of Christ" is a metaphor for His spiritual death in which He  received
the judgment that removed the penalty of sin.
Book By R. B. Thieme Jr.

Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Matt. 6:34
