Hebrews 9:14 (Amplified Bible)
9:14 How much more surely shall the blood of CHRIST, Who by virtue of [His] eternal Spirit [His own pre-existent divine personality] has offered Himself as an unblemished sacrifice to God, purify our consciences from dead works and lifeless observances to serve the [ever] living God?
(Contemporary English Version)
But CHRIST was sinless, and he offered himself as an eternal and spiritual sacrifice to God. That's why his blood is much more powerful and makes our consciences clear. Now we can serve the living God and no longer do things that lead to death.
Thank You very much because Your blood made me spiritually mature, perfected, cleansed, renewed my spirit and removed the guilt, consciousness of sin, evil conscience.
The blood of CHRIST cleanses our consciences from dead works

VIII. MAIN BODY:
A. The blood of CHRIST'S Greatness and effective power offered to GOD as Perfect Sacrifice
"How much more surely shall the blood of CHRIST, Who by virtue of [His] eternal Spirit [His own preexistent divine personality] has offered Himself as an unblemished sacrifice to God,"
How much, more in a greater degree shall the blood of CHRIST has power offered by GOD Himself to GOD as unblemished sacrifice, far more greater in infinity than the blood of bulls and goats. There's no comparison between the blood of CHRIST and the blood of animals, because the latter came from the Divine and the Divine chooses to offer Himself to the Divine.
Hebrews 9:12 (Amplified Bible)
9:12 He went once for all into the [Holy of] Holies [of heaven], not by virtue of the blood of goats and calves [by which to make reconciliation between God and man], but His own blood, having found and secured a complete redemption (an everlasting release for us).
