The military has a trauma system for mass casualties.

The lightly injured are called “minimal” because they don’t need immediate treatment.

The next level is “Delayed” – they need treatment but they can wait.

Then there is “Immediate” that have serious injuries but should survive if they get immediate treatment.

The final category is “Expectant” because the injuries are so severe that there is little hope.

There are many “Immediate” and “Expectants” in our world today. People who need Jesus right now! There is no other remedy. There is no other solution.

Hebrews 9:22 (KJV) says, “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.”

This is not so much about death but about life. This verse tells us that without faith in Jesus, there is no way for scars of sin to be healed. Just as a wounded solider receives life in a blood transfusion, it is by the blood of Jesus that a sinner receives new life.
