Blood of Sprinkling

“And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than [that of] Abel” (Hebrews 12:24).

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ” (2 Corinthians 11:3).

Those who believe that Jesus Christ died for everyone without exception (or who believe that such persons are their muddled or “inconsistent” brethren) DENY the very heart of the gospel. They do NOT believe that it is the work of Jesus Christ alone that makes the difference between salvation and damnation; instead, these self-righteous boasters believe that it is the effort of the sinner that makes the difference between salvation and damnation. These blasphemers deny that Jesus Christ made full satisfaction for sins and that Jesus Christ accomplished and ensured salvation for all whom He represented.

There are many who “say” they believe in the efficacious atonement of Jesus Christ who will vehemently defend the haters of Christ whose teaching is that

Christ’s blood does NOT speak better things than that of Abel (Hebrews 12:24); does NOT demand and ensure remission (Hebrews 9:22); does NOT put away sin (Hebrews 9:26); is NO BETTER than the blood of bulls and goats (Hebrews 10:4); is NO BETTER than the high priests that repeatedly offered these inefficacious sacrifices (Hebrews 10:11).

Many tolerant defenders of this efficacious-blood despising wickedness attempt to obscure, cloud, and corrupt “the simplicity that is in Christ” (2 Corinthians 11:3).

“And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind [him] a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son” (Genesis 22:13; underlining mine).

Those deadly ignorant ones who advocate for Christ’s efficacious blood red-covering NOT speaking better things than that of Abel, set forth a pernicious picture where the ram and Isaac are sacrificed as a burnt offering. Peering through this grotesque window we see that the ram was NOT accepted “in the stead of” Issac.

“For the Law had a shadow of the coming good things, not the image [itself] of [those] things. [Appearing] year by year with the same sacrifices, which they offer continually, they never are able to perfect the ones drawing near. Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered? Because those serving did not still have conscience of sins, having once been cleansed. But in these [there is] a remembrance of sins year by year, for [it is] not possible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins” (Hebrews 10:1-4; underlining mine).

Here is the God-hater R.L. Dabney equating the blood of Jesus Christ with the blood of bulls and goats, and denying that His propitiatory “blood of sprinkling…speaketh better things than [that of] Abel” (Hebrews 12:24).

Nor would we attach any force to the argument, that if Christ made penal satisfaction for the sins of all, justice would forbid any to be punished. To urge this argument surrenders virtually the very ground on which the first Socinian objection was refuted, and is incompatible with the facts that God chastises justified believers, and holds elect unbelievers subject to wrath till they believe. Christ’s satisfaction is not a pecuniary equivalent, but only such a one as enables the Father, consistently with His attributes, to pardon, if in His mercy He sees fit. The whole avails of the satisfaction to a given man is suspended on his belief. There would be no injustice to the man, if he remaining an unbeliever, his guilt were punished twice over, first in his Savior, and then in him” (R.L. Dabney, Systematic Theology, p. 521; underlining mine).
