Pacific Fleet New Testament Stained with Blood of Son

Christ gives salvation when we meet the terms of pardon listed in His will, just as those under Jewish law were purified when they obeyed the laws and institutions sealed by animal blood. Thus one receives the benefits of Christ’s blood when he obeys the words of Christ found in the blood stained book.

C. The evangelist Harry Rimmer was speaking to Christians interested in military evangelism. During the speech, Mr. Rimmer displayed his own personal copy of a white Pacific Fleet New Testament. Following the meeting, a member of the audience showed Mr. Rimmer another white Pacific Fleet New Testament, one given to his son prior to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, one stained with blood. On explanation, the man said, “Yes, this little book is very precious. It’s stained with the blood of my son.” Mr. Rimmer paused for a moment, then held up his personal Bible and said, “God feels the same way about the Book. He loves it too. Its pages are stained with the blood of His Son.”

From a sermon by Davon Huss, Oh The Blood of Jesus, 11/9/2009
