TOPIC: VICTORY BY THE BLOOD
Memorise: For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. Leviticus 17:11
Read: Exodus 12:12-14
According to our Bible reading for today, when God afflicted the land of Egypt with the death of all firstborn males, the Israelites were saved by the sprinkling of blood. This was a glimpse of what was to come later when Jesus shed His blood for us. The blood of Jesus is not just any ordinary blood, it is blood in its purest form that never loses its potency from generation top generation. The Bible tells us that the blood of Jesus cleanses every sin. if you will experience forgiveness of your sins, it must be by the blood of Jesus. But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Hebrews 10:3-4
The blood of animals which used to be shed before Jesus death on the cross only covered sins temporarily, but the blood of Jesus removes sins completely and restores fellowship between God and man. No wonder John prophetically lifted his voice when he saw Jesus in John 1:29: and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
Hebrews 10:10 says: By the which will we are sanctified through thee offering of the body of }Jesus Christ once for all.
Once Jesus did it, it was done because His blood is pure and powerful. The first blood of the innocent shed on earth is that of Abel. The Bible says his blood went up to God and got His attention for vengeance. The blood of Jesus is not only innocent but pure and speaks mercy.
Hebrews 12:24 says: And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
Finally, we will win and be raptured by the blood.
Revelation 12:11 says: And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb..
Don’t fight the battles of life by your power; engage the power in the blood of Jesus.
