VIII. MAIN BODY:
A. Under the Law, everything must be purified by blood
"In fact] under the Law almost everything is purified by means of blood,"
Leviticus 14:6 (Amplified Bible)
14:6 As for the living bird, he shall take it, the cedar wood, and the scarlet [material], and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird killed over the running water;
Leviticus 14:14 (Amplified Bible)
14:14 And the priest shall take some of the blood of the guilt or trespass offering and put it on the tip of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed, and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the great toe of his right foot.
Leviticus 14:51-52 (Amplified Bible)
14:51 And he shall take the cedar wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet [material], and the living bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird and in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times.
14:52 And he shall cleanse the house with the blood of the bird, the running water, the living bird, the cedar wood, the hyssop, and the scarlet [material].
Everything needs to be ceremonially clean in the old covenant and without blood, there's no cleansing. What the blood of animals covers the sin but can't cleanse it. It took the blood of JESUS for us to be cleansed.
B. Without the shedding of blood,
1. there's no release from sin - sin
2. there's no release from it's guilt - guilt
3. there's no remission of due and merited punishment - punishment
"and without the shedding of blood there is neither release from sin and its guilt nor the remission of the due and merited punishment for sins"
Leviticus 4:20 (Amplified Bible)
4:20 Thus shall he do with the bull; as he did with the bull for a sin offering, so shall he do with this; and the priest shall make atonement for [the people], and they shall be forgiven.
