Washington is full of peace monuments....
built after each war!


1 Peter 1:18-19
18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:


Peace with God cannot be attained, it must be received.
Peace with God cannot be purchased by man, God already bought it with Jesus' blood.
Peace with God cannot be reasoned, for faith is not reasonable.

Christian, you are purchased and redeemed with precious blood!

That blood is precious because it is GOD'S blood! It is the "blood of the Lamb of God." That Lamb is Jesus Christ, the Jehovah of the Old Testament, the One and ONLY true Savior.

That blood is precious because it is INCORRUPTIBLE! Being the blood of the Lamb of God, it is "without blemish and without spot." It is the blood of The Son of God, and without sin of any kind.

That blood is precious because it is CLEANSING! The blood of Jesus Christ "...cleanseth us from all sin." (1John 1:7) Only by His blood can we be cleansed and set as holy before Almighty God. Only by coming to the foot of the cross and kneeling in total surrender can we receive the cleansing blood.

That blood is precious because it is REDEEMING! The blood of Christ applied to a person atones for sin and places the person in a right and eternal relationship with God. Christians are purchased out from under the penalty of the law, and reconciled to (or made one with) God.

And that blood is precious because it is PRESERVING! Judgment day shall not bring eternal death to those who are "under the blood;" those who have been "sprinkled" by The Lamb. Judgment day will bring the pronouncement of God: ACQUITTED!

Peace with God can only come through the blood of Jesus Christ!

Love ya,
