A contract signed in blood


There are two questions that need to be asked though.
Whose contract and whose blood?
Yes, whose blood.
For years I heard references here and there to this concept.
People would say as they sign a contract for a loan that they are “signing their life away.”
Movies and television shows would mention signing a contract with the devil and in many cases using your own blood to do it. By the way this is one of the two contracts that answers a part of the question above.
It is coming to realize which of these contracts you are signing that has become blurred, hard to tell, difficult to discern.
Why?
Because the message of the Bible is not being taught correctly. Those in the pulpit are more interested in keeping their pews and coffers full. Hardly ever thinking of the real reason they were placed within the pulpit in the first place. Which was to help those that come to their church to make it into the eternal life to come.
What is a contract?
It is defined as: an agreement with specific terms between two or more persons or entities in which there is a promise to do something in return for a valuable benefit known as consideration.
So what is the consideration you are seeking?
That is what determines which and whose contract you are signing.
So what is the consideration that Christ offers?
John 3:10 Jesus replied, “You are a respected Jewish teacher, and yet you don’t understand these things? 11 I assure you, we tell you what we know and have seen, and yet you won’t believe our testimony. 12 But if you don’t believe me when I tell you about earthly things, how can you possibly believe if I tell you about heavenly things? 13 No one has ever gone to heaven and returned. But the Son of Man has come down from heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the bronze snake on a pole in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 so that everyone who believes in him will have eternal life. 16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.
Matthew 6: 19 “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.
Matthew 5: “God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers. 12 Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.”
So Christ promises eternal live and rewards not upon earth but in the eternal life to come. These are His considerations.
So who signs this contract?
You do, but whose blood do you sign this contract in?
The blood of Jesus Christ.
So if our rewards are eternal life and rewards within the eternal life. Whose contract do we sign that promises rewards upon this temporal plain we now exist within?
I made mention of it earlier. The devil, Satan.
2 Corinthians 4: 4 Therefore, since God in his mercy has given us this new way, we never give up. 2 We reject all shameful deeds and underhanded methods. We don’t try to trick anyone or distort the word of God. We tell the truth before God, and all who are honest know this. 3 If the Good News we preach is hidden behind a veil, it is hidden only from people who are perishing. 4 Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.
“Satan, who is the god of this world.”
So if they seek after rewards upon this earth they have not signed a contract with Christ and in His blood, but they have signed a contract with Satan and used their own blood.
They have made a deal with the devil and aren’t even aware that they have for they have not been taught correctly and have not learned the Word of God for themselves as they are required to do on their own.
So whose contract have you signed and whose blood did you use?
What is it you are seeking?
