Blood Contains the "Life" of the Soul

Genesis 9:4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.

Don't eat meat that has not been properly butchered, i.e. still contains the blood therein.

In as much as the blood contains the "life" of the soul.

In as much as the blood contains the "life" of the soul, we see here the foundation of the doctrine of substitution and atonement, i.e. "life for life". And so it is that "without shedding of blood is no remission (of sins)" (Heb. 9:22).

So if you have sinned, someone has to pay the price with "blood".  Thank God for His Son, Jesus Christ, who was willing to shed His blood for us.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
