REDEEMING THE LAND SERVICE
OUTLINE FOR CAMPBELL RIVER
THE LAND IS DEFILED BY BLOOD
Nu 35:33 You shall not thus pollute the land in which you live; for blood pollutes the land, and no expiation can be made for the land, for the blood that is shed in it, except by the blood of him who shed it.
DEFILED LAND CURSES AND VOMITS OUT ITS INHANBITANTS
Lev 18:24 "Do not defile yourselves by any of these things, for by all these the nations I am casting out before you defiled themselves; 25 and the land became defiled, so that I punished its iniquity, and the land vomited out its inhabitants. 26 But you shall keep my statutes and my ordinances and do none of these abominations, either the native or the stranger who sojourns among you 27 (for all of these abominations the men of the land did, who were before you, so that the land became defiled); 28 lest the land vomit you out, when you defile it, as it vomited out the nation that was before you.
Genesis 4:10 And the LORD said, "What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood is crying to me from the ground. 11 And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand. 12 When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield to you its strength; you shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth."
BLOOD CAN BE APPIED BY MAN TO REMEDY THE CURSE
Ex 12:7 Then they shall take some of the blood, and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they eat them. (RSV) Ex 12:13 The blood shall be a sign for you, upon the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague shall fall upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. (RSV) (NOTE EGYPT was defiled by innocent childrens blood)
2Sa 21:1 Now there was a famine in the days of David for three years, year after year; and David sought the face of the LORD. And the LORD said, "There is bloodguilt on Saul and on his house, because he put the Gibeonites to death."
9... and he gave them into the hands of the Gibeonites, and they hanged them on the mountain before the LORD, and the seven of them perished together.
14...And after that God heeded supplications for the land. (RSV)
De 21:1 If [one] be found slain in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it, lying in the field, [and] it be not known who hath slain him: ...3 And it shall be, [that] the city [which is] next unto the slain man, even the elders of that city shall take an heifer, which hath not been wrought with, [and] which hath not drawn in the yoke;...6 And all the elders of that city, [that are] next unto the slain [man], shall wash their hands over the heifer that is beheaded in the valley: 7 And they shall answer and say, Our hands have not shed this blood, neither have our eyes seen [it]. 8 Be merciful, O LORD, unto thy people Israel, whom thou hast redeemed, and lay not innocent blood unto thy people of Israel's charge. And the blood shall be forgiven them:9 So shalt thou put away the [guilt of] innocent blood from among you, when thou shalt do [that which is] right in the sight of the LORD. (AV)
WE HAVE AUTHORITY TO REMIT SINS
John 20:23 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; [and] whose soever [sins] ye retain, they are retained. (AV)
THE BLOOD OF JESUS REDEEMS ALL CREATION
Col 1:20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
Rom 8:21 because the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and obtain the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning in travail together until now; 23 and not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.
GOD PROMISES TO HEAL THE LAND
2Ch 7:14 if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

GENERAL OUTLINE FOR EACH TEAM

5.Exalt the Lord eg: Sing in the spirit, declare the victory. Read Ps.149:6-9 or other appropriate scripture.
6.Partake of the Lords Supper brought with you from the service. Jesus body and blood were given for the redemption of all creation, Col 1:20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross. (RSV)

DECLARE"The curse caused by the blood of innocent people that died here is broken once and for all. Blood is required for blood and we claim the blood of Jesus over this land as redemption for this curse."
Some may feel it is appropriate pour out bread and wine on the land as a symbol of His redemption for all creation and His blood shed on the earth at Calvary.
