Jesus shed his Blood that we might live eternally…
“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.”
I’ll just be honest with you. When I grew up nobody talked about the blood of Jesus. In fact, people used to get mad if you talked about faith. But, this is a new day. There are many bible students who have delved into the Word of God and have found out more and have shared what they know and proven it to be true. It’s safe to say that up until twelve years ago, I can directly remember not knowing about the Blood of Jesus! That was 1998…the year that I had over three car accidents. I haven’t had one since.
After my last accident, I was so traumatized that I stopped driving. That phobia ended when my husband said he would not drive me to church. He’s changed…but I’m glad he declined or I would have remained in bondage.
I plead the Blood of Jesus at night, in the morning or whenever I want to but I do it consistently. In the bible the blood applied on the doorposts allowed the destroyer to pass over the children of Israel. Those in Egypt who did not have the Blood covering saw the death of their first born male children.
For believers the Blood of Jesus is our protection, a covering, a shelter, a haven….and when I need that…healing, strengthening…I plead the Blood.
I wrote this because a lot of people have heard of pleading the Blood of Jesus…but really don’t understand it.
The Blood of Jesus always promises victory over Satan.
Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him (Satan) by the blood
of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony …”
The Blood of Jesus allows us to enter into the throne room of Almighty God.
Hebrews 10:19, 22 “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter
into the holiest by the blood of Jesus … Let us draw near with a true
heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an
evil conscience …”
The Blood of Jesus sanctifies us!
Hebrews 13:12 “Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify
the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.”
