Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
THE NEW TESTAMENT IS in the blood of Jesus Christ.
It means that the New Testament came by the reason of the blood of Jesus.
The New Testament is far superior to the Old Testament. The Old Testament came through Moses. It was based on what a man could do to please God and frustratingly, man found out that all his good works could not justify him before The Great God of the universe!
The New Testament on the other hand, is based on the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Not necessarily on our works whether good or bad. Our justification is based on the Blood of Jesus Christ. We are declared righteous by reason of the precious Blood of the Master that is shed for humanity.
Apostle Peter enlightened us on this when he said,
“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:”
CEV says “You were rescued from the useless way of life that you learned from your ancestors. But you know that you were not rescued by such things as silver or gold that don’t last forever. You were rescued by the precious blood of Christ, that spotless and innocent lamb.”
Weymouth Translation is very thrilling, it says
“knowing, as you do, that it was not with a ransom of perishable wealth, such as silver or gold, that you were set free from your frivolous habits of life which had been handed down to you from your forefathers,
1Pe 1:19 but with the precious blood of Christ–as of an unblemished and spotless lamb.”
When next you receive the communion, remember that by the Blood of Jesus, you have been redeemed! Alleluia!
Say this out loud: I declare God’s incredible blessings over my life.
I will see an explosion of God’s goodness, a sudden widespread increase.
I will experience the surpassing greatness of God’s favor.
It will elevate me to a level higher than I ever dreamed of. Explosive blessings are coming my way. I am an explosive blessing everywhere i go.
This is the greatest year i have seen so far! Alleluia! Glory to God!
To the ends of the earth!
God bless you richly with great grace, many blessings and many rains!
