The Blood of Jesus!
When I See The Blood!
Jesus is our Passover Lamb. He did not only redeem us from all curses (Galatians 3:13-14), His Precious Blood continues to be a “Token” over us. If we believe and acknowledge the Power of His Blood, we will be marked by the Blood and every time the destroyer sees the Blood, he will pass over us and our household.
God will not “allow” him to “enter” our house. This is clearly confirmed in verse 23 of Exodus 12:-
23 For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass “over the door”, and “will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you”.
Do you see it, God made the promise to us His covenanted family that if we honour the Blood of Jessus, believe in him and use the “hyssop of our tongues” to apply the Blood, He will first “pass over the door” to stay with us in our house and He “will not allow“ the destroyer to “come into” our house to strike us!. Amen, we have the best “weapon” of protection from spiritual evil forces.
If you study the life of Job, in chapter 1, we are told that unless God permits, satan will have no legal right to touch us, our family and our possession. His Blood is our Protection against any evil forces assigned against us.
His Blood is our Hedge of Protection. If we do not break the Hedge, we will have God’s complete protection and no harm should come against a believer if this “Hedge” is not broken. Job showed us how. Read what Ecclesiates says in 10:8:-
“8 He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and “whoso breaketh an hedge“, a serpent shall bite him.”
Yes, for complete peace and safety, we must not, we must never, never, break the Hedge! For myself, I apply the Blood morning and night.
For more on this, read my posting on “VICTORY THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS”.
Peter warned us never to be disobedient to the “Blood of Sprinkling” which speaks of better things than than of Abel’s.
In Leviticus, we are taught how the High Priest should carefully approach God with the “Blood” through the “Veil” after the first entrance “Gate” and through the “Door” of the Holy Place. We saw how important it was for our Lord Himself not to be touched by any unholy and unredeemed person, after His Ressurrection, to carry out one final act of bringing His shed Blood to the Heavenly Tabernacle to sprinkle the Divine Holy Blood before the Mercy Seat. We need to study to know that His Blood is Holy, Divine and Eternal and Powerful. Let’s read some of the several of the more important scriptures highlighted in Exodus 12 below. Pay attention and meditate on them:-
5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
7 And they shall “take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post” of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.
11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: “it is the Lord’s passover”.
13 And the blood 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 you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the Lord throughout your generations; “ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever”.
20 Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread.”
Let me emphasize here that scriptures teach us to always stay sanctified, meaning to keep clean and holy in our journey of faith.
We must keep ourself holy for He is Holy! Therefore, we have to be careful not to say or do anything that can break the Hedge of Protection!
“21 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover.
22 And ye shall “take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason”, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.
23 For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.
24 And ye shall “observe” this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons “for ever”.
Dear Beloved, we must pay heed to this important topic on the “Blood of Jesus” for our own good, for God’s complete protection provided for us through the “Blood of Jesus” shed for us. Believe and honour the Blood for therein lies the “Power” of God. Stay clean and pure to stay protected even as you continue your Kingdom’s work for the Lord. Never leave yourself, your family and possession exposed. Never leave your house unless you apply the Blood over yourself, your house, family and all your possession. Apostle Peter has made it very clear that we must be “Obedience” to the “Blood of Sprinkling”.
“1 Peter 1:2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ:”
As the Elect of God, we are called not to ignore but to obey the “Sprinkling of the Blood of Jesus Christ.“
Now enjoy some of the hymns on the “Power of the Blood of Jesus” as you meditate on and memorize the scriptures below to know that we do not have to fight the battle for the “VICTORY” has been won!
The Precious Blood of Jesus
“18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” – 1 Peter 1:18-19 (KJV)
The Power Of The Blood
“11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”- Revelation 12:11 (KJV)
Be blessed and protected.
