All Because of the Blood

I Peter 1:18-19. “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, but with the precious blood of Christ”.
The resurrection of Christ is proof of another great fact. It is the final proof of the fact that while Jesus received His body from the virgin Mary, His blood was a supernatural contribution – the blood of God Himself (Acts 20:28). Had Jesus’ blood been human blood, it would have perished and completely corrupted during His three days and nights in the tomb. The blood of the sacrificial animals of the Old Testament was corruptible and decayed and was soon gone, but the blood shed on Calvary was imperishable blood.  It is called incorruptible.
The blood of the Lord Jesus was sinless blood, and therefore incorruptible, for sin brought corruption, and where no sin is, there is no corruption. Every drop of blood which flowed in Jesus’ body is still in existence just as fresh as it was when it flowed from His wounded brow and hands and feet and side. The blood that flowed through His unbroken skin in Gethsemane, the blood that was smeared about His back as the cruel, weighted thongs cut through His flesh as the flagellator scourged Him, the blood that oozed out under the thorny crown and flowed from His hands, His head, and His feet, was never destroyed, for it was incorruptible blood. David speaks of Him in the sixteenth Psalm, which Peter quotes in Acts 2, saying:
Acts 2:27. “Thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither will thou suffer thin Holy One to see corruption”.
Although the body of the Lord Jesus Christ lay in the tomb in death for three days and three nights, no corruption had set in, for the body contained incorruptible blood. Lazarus being dead only one day more was said by his sister to be stinking with corruption, but this one saw no corruption because the only cause of corruption, SINFUL BLOOD, was absent from His flesh. That blood, every drop of it is still in existence. Maybe when the Priest ascended into heaven, He went like the high priest of old in the Holy of Holies into the presence of God to sprinkle the blood upon the mercy-seat in heaven, of which the material mercy-seat and ark in the Tabernacle were merely copies. Read Hebrews 9:23-26.
All Jesus did was present His Blood and that was enough!
