PART VI. THE LIFE BLOOD PRINCIPLE OF ATONEMENT
H:2 – The Life Blood Principle – Covenants & Ceremonials
Eph 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour.
The Nakedness of Mankind
Gen 3:10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
The State of Nakedness conveys the following Meanings: unclothed; the State of being unarmed; defenseless; open; uncovered; exposed; having no means of defense or protection against an Enemy’s Attack, or against other Injury.
Specifically, as in the case of Adam & Eve and the other following examples, the Biblical and Spiritual meaning of “Nakedness” conveys “Being” without GOD. They were “Faithless, not clothed with GOD’S Holiness, Purity, Mercy or Grace.
The first Biblical reference to this Negative Emotion, “Shame”, appears as “the Correlative of Sin, Guilt and Ignominy; a combination of the Sense of sin, guilt and dishonor. It is a sin against one’s own Soul. It embodies a Sense of defeat, confusion; contempt; reproach; folly; cruelty; nakedness; poverty; nothingness; unseemliness, and unworthiness.
Hab 2:10 Thou hast consulted shame to thy house by cutting off many people, and hast sinned against thy soul.
It is also the Manifestation of the Act of Sin as with Adam & Eve – “their eyes were opened”, conveying they “now” had the “Understanding” that the serpent had lied to them and they first realized the “Truth” of what they had done with the ever deepening implication of the Reality of the Consequences. This brought with it the sense of impending doom or terror. Covering and hiding themselves was all they could do to combat the turmoil they must have felt after they sinned.
Gen 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
Gen 3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
Disobeying GOD and the Realization of their Sin caused Adam & Eve the sense of Shame. The beginning of the Sin of Disobedience by Adam & Eve, was their preference in Believing Satan and having Unbelief towards GOD. Satan (the devil) actually called GOD a liar and they (Adam & Eve) Assented and Believed him. These Sins, after the Deception was known, caused the State of their Shame, of their “Nakedness” and the State of their Ruin.
Gen 3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
Gen 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
Gen 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
Gen 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Heb 3:12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
See the Series >> THE SIN OF UNBELIEF <<
“Nakedness” also corresponds with the following Scripture which relates to the incident when Israel was in defiance to GOD by making a golden idol to worship while Moses was on the Mountain with Jehovah, receiving the Ten Commandments. Aaron, the brother of Moses, was the person who was forced, by the Israelites, to make the graven image.
Exo 32:25 And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies:)
The following Scripture depicts the same meaning regarding “Nakedness”.
2Ch 28:19 For the LORD brought Judah low because of Ahaz king of Israel; for he made Judah naked, and transgressed sore against the LORD.
In the above Scriptures the common Denominators are – the forsaking of GOD as GOD through Unbelief, the Worshiping of another god and Disobedience to GOD, Transgressing HIS Divine Law. The above examples are a Transgression of the first three Commandments of GOD’S Divine Law which depict the Relationship between Man and GOD. See the article >> Relationship & Relativity <<
The Loss of the Spirit
GOD’S Holiness no longer Guarded or Shielded Adam & Eve after their Sin, nor was GOD’S SPIRIT their Motivating Force any longer. The Loss of Innocence and the Death of their Spirits began the Descent of Mankind from the Spiritual Realm of GOD. Guilt made Adam Aware of the Effects of his Sin of Disobedience to GOD and he attempted to Cover/Hide himself and his Sin but the Fig Leaves he had sewn together, of course, were inadequate. Despite his Futile Attempts Adam could not cover himself enough or cover his Sin.
Guilt and other Negative Thoughts and Emotions Demonstrated, for Adam, that he could not cover his Sin, hide the Knowledge of his Sin, or Effect the Atonement for his Sin since he was Corrupted by Sin and no longer Innocent. Man had no way to Effect his own Salvation. Any Endeavor or Effort Man could Attempt to Reconcile with the Justice of GOD would be Polluted by the Sin in himself.
Exo 20:25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.
Transgression of the Precept/Law of GOD
Mankind is Guilty of Transgressing/Trespassing GOD’S Law, the Precept of GOD and Corrupting GOD’S Entire Creation through their Progenitor, Adam and the Continuation of their own Sin in Disobedience to the Divine Laws of GOD. Mankind, the Entire Human Race, was cursed while they were yet, the “Seeds” of the Human Race, the Descendants who were yet in the “Loins of Adam”.
The Death of their Spirit, (Adam & Eve), Gradual Physical Death and the Second Death at Judgment is the Curse of Sin and the Sentence. The only Way to Salvation, (to be Saved from the Curse of Eternal Damnation and Death) is through JESUS CHRIST, GOD’S Determined and Acceptable Way of Salvation.
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Atonement & Forgiveness
Act 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
CHRIST’S Sacrifice Atones for the Sin of Adam, however, his Descendants, the rest of Mankind, has Sinned on their own account and must answer for those Sins as well. Again, he can not do this except through the Blood of CHRIST because of HIS Sacrifice to Atone for the Sin of HIS People.
Eph 5:1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
Eph 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
Heb 9:26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
Atonement & Reconcilement
In the Parable of the Prodigal Son, CHRIST Demonstrated how the FATHER (GOD), still Loves HIS Children and has Forgiven, those who Believe in CHRIST (Believers), of the Sin committed by their Progenitor Adam and their own Sins and Rejoices to have them Reconciled to HIMSELF.

The Curse of Sin
All Individuals born on Earth are Born under the Same Curse as our First Parents. Because of their Sin, the Entire Human Race is born and made in the likeness of Adam, Carnal and without a Living Spirit. We have his name, (Adam/Mankind/Human), his Image (Carnal Design/Figure) and his Likeness (Natural/Carnal). However, According to >> GOD’S Divine Plan <<, Mankind was to be Created in GOD’S Image (Spiritual Design/Figure) and in GOD’S Likeness (Spirit). See the links above and below.
Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
The Divine Plan stipulated the Created Being, Man, was created to be King/Ruler of his Planet Earth as his FATHER/King/GOD, was Ruler over the Universes, Ruling from Heaven. Man’s Responsibility was to Realize GOD’S Divine Will on Earth as it s in Heaven.
See the Preludes to >> GOD’S Divine Plan << and >> GOD’S Grand Design <<
Sin & Mankind’s Mismanagement
Disobedience to GOD’S Law Affects more than Mankind’s Individual Lives, it Affects our Entire World. If we had remained in the Image and Likeness of GOD, our Dominion over the Earth and over the Animals would Present another type of Scenario than the one we have today. The Earth, its Resources and Animals would be Flourishing under the Government of GOD and the Kingdom of Heaven.
Instead, under the Malefic Worldly Government ruled by Satan, we have Global Pollution, Dwindling of Earth’s Resources and Animals that have become Extinct. As the Trees, Plants (entire Forests) Animals, Fowls and Aquatic Creatures become Extinct, the Seas, Oceans and Lakes will become centers of Disease because these Creatures are no longer Providing the Planetary Ecological Functions that GOD created them for, which is Naturally Maintaining the Ecological Balance and Harmony of our Planet Earth.
As an Example, Trees and Plants Contribute to the Oxygen in our Atmosphere and Creates the Air we Breathe. Aquatic Creatures such as the Seal and the Walrus eat the abundant plant life in the Sea after it has completed its Function as a Filtering Mechanism in the Ecological System. But thousands of these Creatures are killed every year to Satisfy “Human Depravity” and Lust for their Tusks (Ivory) and their Skin for Decorative items. This is Coveting and slaughter, a Depravity that is opposed to GOD’S Divine Cosmic Law. It is a Simple case of Distinguishing between Right or Wrong, Holy or Evil and yet these Animals are slaughtered by the thousands annually.
Unfortunately for Mankind and our Planet, Adam’s Choice was the Opposite of GOD’S Divine Ways and HIS Divine Plan. Instead of being Caretakers of the Dominion GOD had Divined to Give to Man, Mankind has destroyed and is still destroying GOD’S Beautiful Creation and for this Mankind will be Accountable.
Women, Children and Animals
CHRIST made a point to Discuss issues concerning Women, Children and Animals in some of HIS most Prolific Discourses, although HIS Major Audience was Typically Male.
Mat 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
This is Evident in the Divine Cosmic Law of GOD. In the Bible GOD Depicts the Correct Way to take Care of the Land, Animals, Family, Neighbors and Strangers which are stated in the Old Testament and as CHRIST reiterated in the New Testament through discourses and Parables such as the >> Parable of the Samaritan <<. There is no Life Sphere that is not Discussed. See >> Relationship << for more Details.
Col 3:18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
Col 3:19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
Col 3:20 Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.
Col 3:21 Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.
The Kingdom of Light & the Kingdom of Darkness
GOD had given Mankind the Realm of Earth as his Domain but that all changed when Adam decided to Create his own Destiny and in “his own Way”. See >> Unbelief << This resulted in the Downward Spiral of Sin which Resulted in Degradation and Depravity until the >> Flood << which was created to Cleanse the Earth because Mankind had become so Depraved and so Evil. That was the First Generation of Mankind. See>> Noah & The Flood <<
The Two Kingdoms
However, GOD continued HIS Divine Plan which was initiated before the Foundation of the World and Evoked, after the Sin of Adam, the >> Grand Design << which gave Mankind another Chance and another Choice after the Sin of the First father of Mankind. The Result was the Division of the World into >> The Two Divisions of Mankind << and into two (2) Kingdoms. >> The Kingdom of Light and the Kingdom of Darkness. << See the links for the Details. The Grand Design includes the Salvation of Mankind as Prophesied to our first Parents in Genesis 3.
Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
You Must Choose
All People have the Option Available to them > to Choose < their Destiny however, there is the Right Way (Holy) and there is the Wrong Way (Evil). The Kingdom of the World is the Wrong Way (Disobedience to GOD) Created by the Wrong Choice made by Adam & Eve who were influenced by the Serpent (Satan/the devil). The Kingdom of GOD is the Right Way (Obedience to GOD) Created by the Right Choice made by JESUS CHRIST (the Word and SON of GOD) and its Inhabitants are influenced by the >> HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT <<. For more Details about the >> Rulers of the Two Kingdoms << go to the Applicable links above.
The Kingdom of the World
2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
The Kingdom of the World is Ruled by Satan, who is the father of Lies; a Thief; a Murderer; the prince and god of this World (Satan – the devil); who CHRIST came into the World to bring about his Judgment; to cast him out and destroy him along with his Evil works. The Inhabitants of this Kingdom are Unbelievers, Individuals who do not Believe in the >> Sovereignty of GOD << or the Necessity to be Obedient to HIM and to HIS Divine Law. See the Blog, >> GOD’S Divine Cosmic Law. <<
Act 5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.
These Blinded and Deceived individuals are under the Influence of Satan and he Blinds their Minds to the Truth through Deceit as he did Adam and Eve and they, being “Naked”, having no “Spiritual Shield” or Spiritual Protection, (Being without the HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT of GOD), they follow the dictates of the devil’s Reality, and become his Children; the Children of Disobedience and the devil is their father.
Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
The only solution is Salvation in JESUS CHRIST and through HIS Atoning Blood. When a Individual is Spiritually Converted, they are >> Born Again of GOD << and receive the Indwelling of the HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT; they are no longer Spiritually Dead in Sin; they are Spiritually Alive.! They receive Spiritual Gifts; Spiritual Tools; Spiritual Weapons; Spiritual Power; Guidance; Direction; and a better Life Now and a Greater Life in the Future – Eternal Life!
When you are Born Again you become a Believer and if you continue in the Word of GOD, continue in the Word of CHRIST, you become a Disciple of CHRIST and you will no longer be in bondage to sin. You will learn the Truth and the Truth shall make you Free.
Joh 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
Joh 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
