    May you have peace!

    I have started a new thread on the subject you raised, blood, because the other is so long I didn't want the information I am privileged to share with you to be lost. I wish to tell you that you have been misled and, like those you follow, risk misleading others, to your own detriment and theirs. I have been directed by the spirit of my Lord, JAHESHUA MISCHAJAH, to explain to you the TRUTH about blood, its purpose and value, and the Law Covenant's restriction against "eating" it.

    Under the law, a person's LIFE... was in his/her blood. As a result, the Law was that no one should eat the blood of another. This is because many of the "nations" ate blood as a delicacy, for sport and for other reasons having nothing to do with sustaining life. By doing so, they devalued this precious liquid (precious as far as earthling man is considered) and made it nothing more than, say, beef and cucumbers. Food was not only for the preservation of life, but also for earthling man's physical enjoyment. Blood, however, was for neither, but for life... and the atonement of sin.

    After my Lord's ascension, the disciples were led by the holy spirit he poured out on them and as a result, James, led by such spirit, informed the others (some of who were trying to impose the "law" of circumcision on the non-Jews) that such spirit only "added" a few things, including to "abstain" from blood. In their usual form, WTBTS took this beyond the true intent (i.e., not to eat blood for refreshment, delicacy, etc., as many of the "nations" did at that time), and included a restirction against giving/taking blood... intraveneously... for the purpose of saving another's life. Truly, there was no such "law," and saving another's life was not and has never been restricted by the Holy Spirit.

    The TRUTH regarding what we should do when it comes to giving/taking blood can be found in the words of my Lord, when he said, "No one has GREATER love than this... that he should give his LIFE... on behalf of his friends." My Lord gave his life. How? By giving his blood, which he poured out on behalf of the world and commaned us to DRINK. Now, the WTBTS again oversteps the words of my Lord by saying that he substituted wine because he knew the law against eating blood. That was not the truth. The TRUTH is that he substituted wine because he knew that the blood he once possessed, red hemoglobin that coursed through the veins of his body of flesh... would be CHANGED... to the "lifeblood" of God... holy spirit... so that no red hemoglobin would remain. Thus, when we partake of the wine we are, in essence, indicating a "drinking" of the "blood" of Christ... holy spirit.

    Now, given that my Lord said that no man had greater love than to give his life on behalf of his friends... and a man's life is IN his blood... how can withholding one's blood... one's LIFE... meet with God's approval? Wouldn't giving such blood in fact be a SACRIFICE of one's life on behalf of the other? It would.

    I understand that you might not be able to get past the Law Covenant, however, which is one of the MAIN reasons why the WTBTS teaches what it does: it still adheres to "Moses" and the Law mediated by him... rather than accepting the Law of Christ, which was mediated by my Lord, the Holy One of Israel, JAHESHUA MISCHAJAH. As such, they constitute a "harlot," a woman who is bound to one man... but continues to adhere to the law of another, and such other presumably dead.

    Under the Law Covenant, one was condemned for "transgressing" even one of them. Indeed, if you transgressed one... you trangressed them all. How could one ever prevail? One couldn't. Unless... one was RELEASED from that Law. And those who accept the blood of Christ as ratification of a covenant for a NEW law are so released. Yet, we cannot be without law ("lawless"), can we? No, for in a society without law, all suffer. Thus, my Lord gave us a NEW law... a NEW commandment... that we LOVE one another.

    Okay, so... given that the life is in the blood... that no one has greater love than to give his life on behalf of his friends... and that we are COMMANDED to love one another... how can one WITHHOLD one's blood if another needs it to live... and still be adhering to such new law? One cannot.

    The bottom line, dear OBVES... is NOT that we should concern ourselves with TRANSGRESSING the commands of the OLD Law... but that we concern ourselves with SURPASSING that Law... by means of the command of the NEW Law... love. If you think that God will find you unrighteous because you "overstepped" a comman of the Old Law in order to show love... then you do NOT know Him. Not at all. Nor do you know the Christ. For this is the VERY lesson that my Lord taught. Daily. It is the reason he healed on the Sabbath. It is the reason that he touched those considered "unclean." It is the reason that he hung out with sinners. It is the reason that those who hated him, did so: because LOVE... covers a MULTITUDE of transgressions... and because LOVE... along with others... is a FRUIT of God's spirit... against which there is no law.

    I am to ask you, then, to consider this: it is judgment day and two men are standing before the throne of God. Both had the opportunity to save another's life... by giving their own (through blood)... whether temporarily or eternally. One, out of fear of God, withheld his blood and the person died. The other, out of LOVE for his fellow man, gave his blood, although he knew he might be giving up his change for eternal life, and the other lived as a result. Which man do YOU think God will love... and respect... more? The one who let another die... purely out of his own fear? Or the one who was willing to give up even his eternal life... to save the life of just one other?

    If you know the answer, then you are not far from knowing God. If you do not know the, then I bid you look to the Christ and ask yourself which man was he?

    I bid you peace... ears to hear... and a heart of love.

    Your servant and a slave of Christ,

    Aguest, very good post! Did you know that the abstaining from blood in the OT was animal blood. Later in the NT they started mixing animal's blood that was sacrificed to idols with wine and would drink it.

    Also I found a wall sculpture pre dated NT with a man bending down with a tube going into his mouth coming from his kings arm. I guess things became so evil that they thought they could gain eternal life from their earthly kings. Kings thought they were gods.

    All I can say is.....a post well done. When I donate blood Oct.13, I will remember this post. To the point and not at all preachy. Thanks.

    good point - I never put those two together before.

    A Guest,

    Good points and well written.

    I bid you take care for once again your true spirit is showing. I once thought that perhaps at some point you would grow tired of your "appearance" and maybe do something to change it. I have since learned, however, that your own "blindness" has kept you from seeing what you truly "look" like. Therefore, I bid you seek... and ask for... eyesalve... so that you can "see" your nakedness, which is truly ugly... and perhaps put on some "clothes."

    Revelation 3:17; Colossians 3:12, 14

    I bid you peace.

    An unashmed slave of Christ,

    Peace to you!

    Yes, I did know that about animal blood, and thanks for stating it here. I know I'm "preaching to the choir," but I'd like to continue, if I may, just in case anyone else is interested. Thanks!

    As you know, Israel was supposed to stay "separate" from the nations, not only not following their gods and idols, but also not taking up their customs and traditions. This was an area of particular note because, with regard to the nations, very often eating the heart and drinking the blood of an enemy indicated complete conquest of that enemy, literally that one had completely consumed the SPIRIT of that enemy and so also consumed his/her immortality. Israel, however, had rules as to the conquest of their enemies and never were they to take credit: when they conquered an enemy, it was because JAH had delivered that enemy into their hand and even the blood of that enemy belonged NOT to them... but to JAH.

    Either way, however, whether animal or human blood, its purpose was not for refreshment or displays of superiority in war, etc. Instead, it represented life and, thus, is the only thing acceptable for atonement. Which is totally why the WTBTS is SO in error when it teaches people who died will be resurrected because they paid for their sins when they died - nothing could be further from the truth! There is none among man whose blood can atone for his sins; not one... except the One whose blood can atone for ALL sin for ALL people. They misstate the meaning of Romans 6:23, which says "the wages sin pays is death," and on the basis of this verse teach that once one dies once has paid for one sins and so has a right to resurrection. This is a lie.

    True, death is the price... cost... or wage of sin. However, life thereafter... by means of resurrection... is a GIFT... from God. And such gift is received through the Son of God in this manner:

    "I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me even though he dies will come to life." John 11:25

    And HOW do we "exercise" that faith? By obeying him and doing what he told us to do:

    "He that feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has everlasting life, and I shall resurrect him at the last day." John 6:54

    And yet, this is the VERY thing that the WTBTS teaches folks NOT to do. I remember a "sister" (who I came upon at a table on a university campus) once saying to me, when I asked her how it was that she would be resurrected and live forever if she DIDN'T eat and drink, telling me that she would be resurrected without eating and drinking because she "had life in [her]self]." She then showed me where the "Reasoning Book," said that those who don't eat and drink "have life in themselves." But this is a LIE! How do we know? Because my Lord said:

    "Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have NO life in yourselves." John 6:53

    As you can see, by means of their false teaching THEY are among the "scribes and Pharisees" that my Lord spoke of when he said:

    "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because you shut up the kingdom of the heavens before men; for you yourselves do not go in, neither do you permit those on their in to go in." Matthew 23:12

    Since 1935 at least, this false prophet has actually been the MAIN reason that those who wish to enter in before God have NOT been able to do so. By teaching that we should NOT eat and drink ('cause only a few can/should), they have, literally, "shut up the kingdom of the heavens" by blocking the Way (Christ) in, by standing in FRONT of the Door and Narrow Gate, Christ. They have misled millions away from listening to the Christ and have told them, instead, to listen to them and their false propaganda.

    It is my SINCEREST hope that, rather than lose ALL faith in God and Christ, some will WAKE UP and see that, yes, they have been misled, but they don't have to CONTINUE to be. It is my sincere hope that they will see that, yes, the WTBTS has indeed LIED to them... about a great many things... particularl THIS issue (eating and drinking). That as such, the WTBTS has shown itself to be a FALSE prophet... and "the offspring of vipers."

    Truly, ANYONE can hear and see the Son of God, and through him, they can hear and see God. But they would have to get past the pain and chagrin of being misled and TURN AROUND... and return to God,. through Christ, by doing what Christ directed us to do (eat and drink). He is there. His flesh is there and his blood is there. All WE need do is take... eat... and drink. In faith. That it is his flesh and blood and that it IS life-giving. If we only "exercise" that small act of faith... the Door opens... and we move up from there.

    But I know you already know this, dear Sarah, so, for the sake of others I wil close.

    May the undeserved kindness and mercy of my God and Father, the Most Holy One of Israel, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, whose name is JAH of Armies, and the peace and love of His Son and Christ, my Lord, JAHESHUA MISCHAJAH, be upon you... and your entire househod... to time indefinite.

    Your servant and fellow slave of Christ,
