Nothing, but the blood!
Genesis 22:1-8 "And it came to pass,
that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom
thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which
I will tell thee of. And Abraham
rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the
wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him. Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar
off. And Abraham said unto his
young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you. And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering,
and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife;
and they went both of them together. And
Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I,
my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for
a burnt offering? And Abraham said,
My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together"

shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye [are]: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague
shall not be upon you to destroy, when I smite the land of Egypt"

and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb"

And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power

that were sometime alienated and enemies in mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled 22 In the body of his flesh through
death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight : 23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled,
and not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, [and] which was preached to every creature which is under
heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister"

Hebrews 9:11-15 "11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater
and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered
in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption.13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth
to the purifying of the flesh:14 How
much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience
from dead works to serve the living God?15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called receive the promise of eternal
I John 1:5-10 "5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare
unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness,
we lie, and do not the truth:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and
the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the
truth is not in us.9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.10
If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us"
"For when we were yet without strength,
in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while
we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death
of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through
our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement"

I have stricken His blood in my heart (by Grace and by Faith) that is all I got and trust.
1:4-6 "4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and
which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;5 And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, [and]
the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins
in his own blood,6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him glory and dominion for ever and ever.
"Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers,
to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood"
God hath purchased His church with His own blood!
PRAISE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!
