What is the SIGNIFICANCE OF THE BLOOD OF YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH?
Leviticus 17:11 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
11 For the life of the creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for your lives—FOR IT IS THE BLOOD THAT MAKES ATONMENT BECAUSE OF THE LIFE.
John 6:53 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
53 So (YAHUSHUA) Yeshua said to them, “Amen, amen I tell you, unless you EAT THE FLESH of the SON OF YAHUVEH/YAHWEH GOD (not Son of Man!!!) and drink HIS BLOOD, you have NO LIFE in yourselves.
YAHUSHUA here makes it clear that we are required by HIM and HIS HEAVENLY FATHER YAHUVEH/YAHWEH GOD to spiritually eat YAHUSHUA’S FLESH and DRINK YAHUSHUA’S BLOOD if we are to receive SPIRITUAL LIFE!
Ephesians 2:1-10 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
From Death to Life
2 In the past you were spiritually dead because of your sins and the things you did against God. 2 Yes, in the past your lives were full of those sins. You lived the way the world lives, following the ruler of the evil powers[a] that are above the earth. That same spirit is now working in those who refuse to obey God. 3 In the past all of us lived like that, trying to please our sinful selves. We did all the things our bodies and minds wanted. Like everyone else in the world, we deserved to suffer God’s anger just because of the way we were.
4 But GOD is rich in mercy, and he loved us very much. 5 We were spiritually dead because of all we had done against him. But he gave us new life together with Christ. (You have been saved by God’s grace.)6 Yes, it is because we are a part of Christ Jesus that God raised us from death and seated us together with him in the heavenly places. 7 God did this so that his kindness to us who belong to Christ Jesus would clearly show for all time to come the amazing richness of his grace.
8 I mean that you have been saved by grace because you believed. You did not save yourselves; it was a gift from God. 9 You are not saved by the things you have done, so there is nothing to boast about. 10 God has made us what we are. In Christ Jesus, God made us new people so that we would spend our lives doing the good things he had already planned for us to do.
Colossians 2:13 Good News Translation (GNT)
13 You were at one time SPIRITUALLY DEAD because of your sins and because you were Gentiles without the Law. But (YAHUVEH/YAHWEH) GOD has now brought you to life with (MESSIAH) Christ. (YAHUVEH/YAHWEH) GOD forgave us all our sins;
Mankind is SPIRITUALLY DEAD before they accept YAHUSHUA as their ONE and ONLY MESSIAH plus HIS BLOOD SACRIFICE!!!
Remember that LIFE IS IN THE BLOOD!
Leviticus 17:14 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
14 For the life of every creature, its blood is in its life. Therefore I said to Bnei-Yisrael: You are not to eat the blood of any kind of creature, for the life of every creature is its blood. Whoever eats it is to be cut off.
If in the earthly / physical realm, LIFE IS IN THE BLOOD, then it is the same in the Spiritual Realm. The Spiritual Realm and things SUPERSEDE(S) the earthly realm and things!!!
Note that YAHUVEH/YAHWEH GOD instructs the Children of Israel never to eat the blood of any animal and added that all blood belongs to him.
There is a reason for that.
Leviticus 17:10-14 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
Sacrifice of Life in Blood
10 “Anyone from the house of Israel, or from the outsiders dwelling among them, who eats any kind of blood, I will set my face against that soul—the one who eats blood—and will cut him off from among his people. 11 For the life of the creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for your lives—for it is the blood that makes atonement because of the life. 12 Therefore I have said to Bnei-Yisrael: No person among you may eat blood, nor may any outsider dwelling among you eat blood.
13 “Any person from Bnei-Yisrael, or from the outsiders dwelling among them, who hunts as game any animal or bird that may be eaten, must drain its blood and cover it with dust. 14 For the life of every creature, its blood is in its life. Therefore I said to Bnei-Yisrael: You are not to eat the blood of any kind of creature, for the life of every creature is its blood. Whoever eats it is to be cut off.
YAHUSHUA HA MASIACH is spoken in the HOLY BIBLICAL SCRIPTURES as the “Second Adam”. As the “Second Adam”, HE lived a PERFECT LIFE while on earth. HE was without blemish or defect. HE respected and honoured HIS earthly parents as commanded in the HOLY BIBLICAL SCRIPTURES which as a matter of fact HE is (as per John 1:1).
Sadly, the First Adam failed by sinning against YAHUVEH/YAHWEH GOD thereby becoming imperfect and unacceptable.
YAHUSHUA, the MESSIAH (also known as JESUS CHRIST / YESHUA) died for the sins of mankind as the LAMB of YAHUVEH/YAHWEH GOD without blemish (or the perfect LAMB OF YAHUVEH/YAHWEH GOD). HE shed HIS BLOOD by being beaten 39 times and then crucified by the Roman soldiers after being sold by HIS own people, fellow Jews/Israelites (Psalm 118; Isaiah 53).
THERE IS POWER IN THE BLOOD THAT YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH SHED! That BLOOD is now a POWERFUL WEAPON that we can use against Satan and his demons. The BLOOD OF YAHUSHUA can:
- Give Life
- Make way to receive YAH’S SALVATION from the POWER OF SIN and DEATH!
- Cleanse from sin thereby purifying
- Deliver / Set Free
- Give us free and easy access to YAHUVEH/YAHWEH GOD’S Throne (Hebrews)
- Make RIGHTEOUS (Holiness is achieved through observing TORAH)
YAHUSHUA’S BLOOD is still very much fresh and alive. In fact, in the HEAVENS, there is a RIVER that flows with HIS BLOOD in the Spiritual Realm.
Sadly, Adam and Eve and all the people who lived on the earth before YAHUSHUA’S first coming did not have the privilege of using the WEAPON of the BLOOD OF YAHUSHUA but we do. We ought to Praise YAHUVEH GOD very well because we overcome much with the BLOOD OF YAHUSHUA.
The Hebrew word for “BLOOD” is “DAM” from the word “ADAM”. “ADAMAH” which means earth/ground is the root word.
“ADAM” is the Hebrew word for “man”. It could be ultimately derived from Hebrew אדם (‘adam) meaning “to be red”, referring to the RUDDY COLOUR OF THE HUMAN SKIN, or from Akkadian adamu meaning “TO MAKE”.
According to Genesis in the Old Testament ADAM was created from the earth by YAH/ELOHIM (there is a word play on Hebrew אֲדָמָה (‘adamah) “earth”). Adam and Eve were the first humans, living happily in the Garden of Eden until they ate the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 2-3). As a result they were expelled from Eden to the lands to the east, where they gave birth the second generation, including Cain, Abel, Seth and some other children who are not mentioned in the TORAH but elsewhere in the Lost Books of the Bible.
The very first letter of the Hebrew word “DAM” is “D”, D for the Hebrew Letter “DALET”. According to Ancient Hebrew Alphabet pictograph, the letter “Dalet” was represented by a DOOR. This is very significant.
The BLOOD OF YAHUSHUA makes way for those who accept and use it.
A DOOR makes way for one to in and out of a room or rooms.
We can see that YAHUVEH GOD is strategic in HIS Creation.
YAH created the BLOOD OF YAHUSHUA to make way for us in life. Here we see that YAHUSHUA’S BLOOD is our ATONEMENT for our sins, iniquities and transgressions!
Throughout the OLD COVENANT/TESTAMENT, we see the BLOOD OF ANIMALS WITHOUT DEFECTS being used to ATONE for the SINS of mankind amongst the Children of Israel. All the SACRIFICES made were pointing to FINAL SACRIFICE which is not YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH!
We see throughout the TORAH, the Hebrew and GODLY concept of a SACRIFICIAL SYSTEM of one life for another life. This is also seen when talking about marriage where MEN are commanded to LOVE THEIR WIVES AS YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH LOVED HIS BRIDE, that is to say that HE laid down HIS life for them. Men are required to live sacrificially.
Further on, we learn from Romans 12:1-2 that we are required to BE LIVING SACRIFICES UNTO YAH on a daily basis.
Romans 12:1-2 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
Be Dead to Self
12 I urge you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice—holy, acceptable to God—which is your spiritual service. 2 Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.
A LIVING SACRIFICE tends to put YAH’S perfect WILL above one’s own will because they are dead to the flesh. They have given their life to YAHUSHUA. It is no longer them that live but rather YAHUSHUA therefore YAHUSHUA directs their life on a daily basis and in everything they do.
The bodies of those who have accepted YAHUSHUA as MESSIAH and lovingly obediently follow HIM daily are meant to be HOLY TEMPLES FOR RUACH HA KODESH.
YAHUSHUA makes it clear in that PROPHECY that everytime we DRINK HIS BLOOD SPIRITUALLY and EAT HIS FLESH SPIRITUALLY (through drinking physical wine / grape juice and eating physical bread after confessing our sins and asking for forgiveness plus cleansing by HIS BLOOD after PRAYING OVER THE WINE/GRAPE JUICE and BREAD), we become ONE WITH YAHUSHUA and we become MORE EMPOWERED against Satan because then we have more of YAHUSHUA in us!!! DAILY HOLY COMMUNION is the best way to be ONE with our SPIRITUAL BRIDEGROOM! Through partaking in it, YAHUSHUA gives us HIS EYES, EARS, NOSE, TONGUE, etc. The MORE OF YAHUSHUA we have in us, the MORE EMPOWERED we are against Satan and HIS DEMONS.

It was THE BLOOD OF A PERFECT LAMB that protected the Children of Israel during their last night in the land of Bondage (Egypt)!!! YAHUVEH GOD calls that night “PASSOVER” because HE passed over everyone whose door had the BLOOD OF THE LAMB painted with HYSSOP.
THERE IS POWER IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB OF YAHUVEH GOD ALMIGHTY!!!
The BLOOD OF THE LAMB used on PASSOVER night was pointing to YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH. In fact, YAHUSHUA ended up becoming a PASSOVER LAMB some years later. We still celebrate that to-date.
PRAISE, PRAISE, PRAISE YAH:
YAHUVEH, YAHUSHUA and SHKINYINYAH GLORY!!!
Revelation 12:11 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
11 “They defeated him (Satan) because of the LAMB’S BLOOD
and because of the message of their witness.
Even when facing death
they did not cling to life.
1 Peter 1:19 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
19 on the contrary, it was the costly bloody sacrificial death of the Messiah, as of a lamb without defect or spot.
1 John 1:6-8 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
6 If we claim to have fellowship with him while we are walking in the darkness, we are lying and not living out the truth. 7 But if we are walking in the light, as he is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of his Son Yeshua purifies us from all sin.
8 If we claim not to have sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
Hebrews 9:11-28 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
11 But when the Messiah appeared as cohen gadol of the good things that are happening already, then, through the greater and more perfect Tent which is not man-made (that is, it is not of this created world), 12 he entered the Holiest Place once and for all.
And he entered not by means of the blood of goats and calves, but by means of his own blood, thus setting people free forever. 13 For if sprinkling ceremonially unclean persons with the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer restores their outward purity; 14 then how much more the blood of the Messiah, who, through the eternal Spirit, offered himself to God as a sacrifice without blemish, will purify our conscience from works that lead to death, so that we can serve the living God!
15 It is because of this death that he is mediator of a new covenant [or will].[a] Because a death has occurred which sets people free from the transgressions committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promised eternal inheritance. 16 For where there is a will, there must necessarily be produced evidence of its maker’s death, 17 since a will goes into effect only upon death; it never has force while its maker is still alive.
18 This is why the first covenant too was inaugurated with blood. 19 After Moshe had proclaimed every command of the Torah to all the people, he took the blood of the calves with some water and used scarlet wool and hyssop to sprinkle both the scroll itself and all the people; 20 and he said, “This is the blood of the covenant which God has ordained for you.”[b] 21 Likewise, he sprinkled with the blood both the Tent and all the things used in its ceremonies. 22 In fact, according to the Torah, almost everything is purified with blood; indeed, without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.
23 Now this is how the copies of the heavenly things had to be purified, but the heavenly things themselves require better sacrifices than these. 24 For the Messiah has entered a Holiest Place which is not man-made and merely a copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, in order to appear now on our behalf in the very presence of God.
25 Further, he did not enter heaven to offer himself over and over again, like the cohen hagadol who enters the Holiest Place year after year with blood that is not his own; 26 for then he would have had to suffer death many times — from the founding of the universe on. But as it is, he has appeared once at the end of the ages in order to do away with sin through the sacrifice of himself. 27 Just as human beings have to die once, but after this comes judgment, 28 so also the Messiah, having been offered once to bear the sins of many,[c] will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to deliver those who are eagerly waiting for him.
