Immediately There Came out Blood and Water

Lord, cleanse our whole being so that we can be clean inside and outside. Lord, our lips, our ears, the eyes of our heart, and our spirit within all need the cleansing of Your precious blood.

Key Verse:
John 19:34But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately there came out blood and water.
Footnotes:
This (life)-imparting death of the Lord's is typified by Adam's sleep, out from which (Eve) was produced (Gen. 2:21-23), and is signified by the death of the one (grain) of wheat that fell into the ground for the bringing forth of many (grains) (12:24) to make the one bread ?the (Body) of Christ (1 Cor. 10:17). Hence, it is also the life-(propagating), life-multiplying death, the generating and reproducing death.
The Lord's pierced side was prefigured by (Adam's) opened side, out from which Eve was produced (Gen. 2:21-23). The blood was typified by the blood of the Passover (lamb) (Exo. 12:7, 22; Rev. 12:11), and the water was typified by the water that flowed out of the smitten (rock). (See John 19:34 note 1)
