    John 1:29

    The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.


    "Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
    Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
    Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace. Amen."

    Lamb of God - The Messiah
    The Messiah is called the "Lamb of God" throughout the Bible's New Testament. This may seem a peculiar label to those who aren't familiar with biblical idioms, but to those who know their Bible, it is a cherished title for the beloved Messiah, Jesus Christ.

    Lamb of God - Biblical Roots
    Prophetic pictures and references to the coming Lamb of God are scattered throughout the Bible's Old Testament. Indeed, many Bible scholars believe that the entire Bible (66 books written by 40 authors over a period of approximately 1,600 years) tells the story of Jesus Christ. Every story, every genealogy, every number, every page, every detail speaks of our Lord and Savior. In the first book of the Bible, Genesis, we find one of the better-known prophecies of the coming Lamb of God. In Genesis 22, God commands Abraham to offer his beloved son Isaac as a sacrifice. God is not endorsing child sacrifice among men -- He is foretelling His Child sacrifice for men. Abraham is obedient to God, not willing to keep anything from God, even his beloved son. This was a test for Abraham and a testimony to the world. On the way to the altar, Isaac asks his dad, "Look, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?" In response, Abraham prophesied, "My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together" (Genesis 22:7-8).

    When they arrive at the place of sacrifice, Abraham prepares to offer Isaac to the Lord, but before Abraham could slay his child, God stops him. We read, "Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. But the Angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, 'Abraham, Abraham!' So he said, 'Here I am.' And He said, 'Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me'" (Genesis 22:10-12). Before they leave the mountain top where Abraham was to offer Isaac, Abraham again prophesies the coming of the Lamb of God, "And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, 'In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen'" (Genesis 22:14). Approximately 2,000 years later, upon that very same mountain just outside of Jerusalem, God offered His only Son, the Lamb of God, as a sin offering to reconcile fallen man to the Holy Living God Almighty.

    Lamb of God - The Passover Lamb
    The Lamb of God is dramatically revealed in Exodus 12 and 13, with the Jewish Feast of the Passover. This is perhaps the most compelling foreshadow of the coming Lamb of God, the Messiah. The Passover Feast occurs each year on the 14th day of the Jewish month of Nisan. It is eaten in remembrance of the Lord "passing over" the houses of those who had sacrificed the Passover Lamb and sprinkled its blood on their wooden doorposts and mantles, while the angel of death visited those who had not sprinkled the blood of the lamb. The angel of death was the final of ten plagues sent by God to redeem His people from slavery in Egypt, the land of their bondage. Approximately 1,500 years later, on the 14th day of Nisan, the Passover Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, was sacrificed upon a wooden cross for the sins of all mankind. When the Day of the Lord comes, those who have covered themselves in the blood of the Lamb by accepting Christ will be kept safe while the world pays for their rebellion against God.

    Lamb of God - "Who Takes Away the Sin of the World!"
    "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!" This was John the Baptist's declaration in John 1:29 upon seeing Jesus for the first time. John the Baptist was "the voice of one crying in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the LORD; Make His paths straight'" (Isaiah 40:3; Matthew 3:3). He warned the world to "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand" (Matthew 3:2). The Apostles "went out and preached that people should repent" (Mark 6:12), and Jesus declared, "I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish" (Luke 13:3,5). "Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord..." (Acts 3:19). God Almighty has given this testimony to a fallen world: "it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27). Therefore, repent of your sins and accept the Lord your God who "so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

    Pleading THE BLOOD OF JESUS


    The act of the Atonement for our sin is in the shedding of the blood in Jesus Christ's death. Jesus came in the likeness of sinful flesh, in a mortal body. Since God cannot die He needed to take upon Himself a human body to die for the sins of the world..

    ...The blood in Jesus body was not the magic. He had to die on a certain day and time to fulfill the plan of the Passover lamb. The blood of Christ refers to his sacrificial death. One can bleed and still not die but the Bible tells us he died for our sins- by crucifixion. If Jesus had been cut and someone were to physically contact his blood, touching it, there would be no transference of his holiness, power or healing. (unlike the Indiana Jones movie in search of the Holy Grail). 1 Cor.15:3: "that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures," Rom.5:8: "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Rom.5:10: "For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, Phil 2:8: "And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross." Heb.9:15 "And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death," God the Father accepted his death as his blood was spilled on the altar (the cross). It was completed when he died.

    He said this is my body pointing to the Passover lamb motif in the Old Testament .He was given as a lamb on a specific day and time for a specific purpose. If it was done any other way or day it would not have been acceptable. Just as John the baptizer introduced him as "the LAMB that takes away the sins of the world." Christ fulfilled all the Old Testament types including the scapegoat but it was the Passover lamb that is of the most importance. He was judged instead of us, so he passed over our judgment and we go from death to life. Exod.12:13 "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." To have the blood applied was so that one would not receive the judgment of God he passed over them. Today the communion we participate in (the blood and bread) is a memorial just as it was celebrated as a feast after the original Passover. Ex.12:14. 1 Cor.5:7 "…Christ our Passover, was sacrificed for us."

    Lev.1:5": "and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall bring the blood and sprinkle the blood all around on the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of meeting." Lev.4:6: "The priest shall dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle some of the blood seven times before the LORD, in front of the veil of the sanctuary." Lev.4:30: "Then the priest shall take some of its blood with his finger, put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering."

    All these are types of Christ in the different sacrifices and different offerings. While the blood was applied from the animal it required the animal to die, and give its life.


    In the Passover the blood was applied only once and it released the captives of slavery from Israel. They could not personally touch it, they had to use the hyssop plant and dip in the blood to apply it to the door. In the New Testament the blood only works when it is applied by faith; the blood sacrifice is done only once to release one from sin. It continually cleanses it does not have to be reapplied as if it loses strength.(1 Jn.1:7-9) ....... http://www.letusreason.org/Doct23.htm

    The Lamb of the Father; He was perfect as sacrifice for His brothers, sisters, and friends; He is perfected at the right Hand of the Father, He has brought in and been a mediator to the perfect covenant of the Father. He is light, guidance, the Shepard, and salvation. He gives us to know The Father and we know who He is also when He calls; His words will live forever just as He has life forever and also His people who stand with and for the Father, His Father, our Father.

    All one needs is to hear the call and answer; answer in obedience and faith and He will always be there to guide you along the Way.
