Delivered from Death

ChaliceAt the Exodus from Egypt, the blood of each household's lamb was daubed on the doorposts of Israelite houses. As a result, God's vengeful death spirit passed over the household and the first born child was saved from death. The blood on the doorpost was considered by Early Christians as a picture of Christ's sacrifice for sin upon the cross so that God's righteous anger might not fall on members of his Mystical Body. Jesus' blood brought about the protection of born again members of the Mystical Body from the penalty of sins committed. Jesus salvation cup at Holy Communion bore the same tell-tale marks of the cross of Christ.

Blood on the Doorpost

A Blood SplatterPeter told us in 1 Peter 1.18-19 that we were redeemed "with the precious blood of Christ, a Lamb without blemish or defect." The word "blood" occurred 427 times in the Bible. All humans have blood tainted by sin. We were all born in sin and we must therefore die. Jesus was the only one who could stand in our place at the final judgement because he was sinless, his blood was pure and untainted.
