God created everything in this world with a purpose. In Revelation 4:11, it reads, "You are worthy, our Lord and God , to receive glory, honor and power, for you created all things and by your will they were created and have their being". Even in the blood, God created a purpose, His will.
I never realized the importance of blood. It carries the nutrients and oxygen to the cells and transfers waste away from them. Without oxygen, we cannot breathe and if we cannnot breathe, then there is no more life.
Blood banks are always looking for donors. With one donor's blood, they separate it into components that can be useful for many patients. It helps people with anemia, cancer and other potentially life threatening diseases. Then what is God's will in the creation of the blood?
Truly, life is in the blood. Thru the celebration of the Passover, at the time of Exodus, the blood was a sign. If God saw the blood, no destruction occurred. In the New Testament, Jesus Christ fulfilled the Old Testment by celebrating the Passover with His disciples, saying that the bread is His body and the wine His blood which was given for the forgiveness of sins and eternal life! If we keep the Passover as Jesus commanded, then it also serves as a sign where no destruction will come upon us. Even more so, we are allowed the forgiveness of our sins and receive the opportunity to go back to the kingdom of heaven where only eternal life exists!
