Mixed Blood Will Get Contaminated!

Updated: Jun 13




Proper Usage of the Blood


As I continue to share about the errors and misapplications of certain scriptures, the blood is one that is used improperly. I want to remind the readers that this is not nitpicking, but it is for your spiritual well-being. Since we belong to the Perfect and Excellent God, we should be thinking like Him and striving for excellence.


Why do you think the Word of God tells us to have the mind of Christ? Why do you think we are to walk in holiness and righteousness? Although we are placed in the position of righteousness and holiness, we are commanded to walk (grow, progress) in our walk with Christ. We are to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18).


With that being said, here’s the main point for today- the blood. The history of the blood being applied and God’s purpose for it.

This is a synopsis (summary). We’re taking a journey back to Egypt when the Hebrews (Jews) were in slavery (Exodus, chapter 1), and the instructions that were given to them before they escaped from Egypt. The Lord sent Moses to deliver them from Pharaoh’s bondage. The Lord sent ten plagues (gods that the Egyptians worshiped) upon Egypt, and none of the worked until the last one; firstborn were killed, which included Pharaoh’s and he gave in. Please read Exodus , chapter 11).


This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.  Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying:

‘On the tenth of this month every man shall take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household. And if the household is too small for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next to his house take it according to the number of the persons; according to each man’s need you shall make your count for the lamb.  

Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats. Now you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month.


Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight.  And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it. Then they shall eat the flesh on that night; roasted in fire, with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.  Do not eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted in fire—its head with its legs and its entrails.  


You shall let none of it remain until morning, and what remains of it until morning you shall burn with fire.  And thus you shall eat it: with a belt on your waist, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. So, you shall eat it in haste. It is the Lord’s Passover.


For I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the Lord.  Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt (Exodus 2:2-13).


The Passover was symbolic of Christ the perfect Lamb being sacrificed for our sins (salvation), the ones who had blood on their doorposts, were saved from the destroyer. You must remember that once Christ shed His blood on the cross (doorpost) through His sacrificial death, our sins were passed over. Now that you know about the symbolism (foreshadow) of Christ pertaining to the Passover, I will pick up tomorrow the purpose of the blood and how it is for salvation only.
