So often times we focus on the power, miracles, and healings of Jesus; that we forget the greatest gift given to man. We are excited about the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the anointing and the prosperity. We want to have abundance, blessing, and favour, and live a good and prosperous life on earth that we forget about the best and most precious blessing. We forget the greatest most important point of following God. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him will not have to die and perish forever in hell, but so that we can live for eternity with Jesus in heaven. Hell is a terrible and hideous place; it is full of pain and horror that never ends. Hell is a place of torment where there is no hope, no life, no joy, and no peace. It is constant and continual torment. Hell is a place of fire and brimstone, and a place of never ending torture and pain. There is no escape, no relief, no ending; people hang on crosses, burning, and screaming out in pain; demons torture and flames consume; the most unimaginable pain and hopelessness, full of darkness and scorching heat. This is what Jesus came to rescue us from!!! This is why Jesus came, so we did not have to endure such a thing. And we have forgotten to an extent the significance of this very precious gift. Oh, how much God loves us!!! If only the world knew! If only the world knew of this precious and priceless gift! It’s unimaginable!!!
The church is so busy condemning the world when God came to not condemn but to save!!! John 3:16 clearly states: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
If only, us, the Church, the believers of God would stop pointing out the sin in people, and start showing people how great God’s love is for them. Jesus loves us so much! He came to die for us because if He did not then everyone of us would die and eternally burn in Hell. God’s love for us was so great, and He saw that we only live here on earth for 100 years but then when we die we don’t cease to exist, no, we instead would die forever in Hell, not being able to escape never ending pain and torture. God wants the world to know what He did for them; His great endless and unconditional love for them. We need to live in love, God’s love. We need to live the way Jesus did, in compassion and love. And tell the people around us that Jesus died to save them from eternity in hell. Jesus died to rescue us out of unimaginable, never-ending pain. He loves us that much!
The greatest gift ever given, and that will ever be given, is the death of Jesus on the cross for us, how He died a pain filled death that He did not deserve so that we could live forever with Him in Paradise….If only we believed….If only the world knew such an amazing gift of God!!!
“Thank You Daddy God for your great love for me! Thank You, for dying for me, and taking my place, my sin, so that I did not have to go to hell; but I can now live with you forever in Heaven. Thank You for the great price that You paid so that I could have a free but priceless gift. Thank You for coming into this world for me. I pray, Father God, that I will not forget all that You did for me, and that I will remember the cost and the sacrifice that You bore so that I could know You. I want to know You, love You, and walk with You, God. Thank You for dying for me!”
Shalom, and let the love of God consume and change your life,
There is power in the blood of Jesus! Jesus the perfect, sinless, Son of God, and the spotless Lamb of God; died for the sins of the world. His blood as poured out so we could be forgiven, righteous and holy. We are washed clean by Jesus’s blood. His blood not just covers but completely wipes out our sins and iniquities.
“…without the shedding of blood there is no remission (of sins).” – Hebrews 9:22
We would not have been able to be forgiven, no been able to go to heaven, not been able to escape hell, if not for the shedding of blood. Only someone who was blameless, pure, holy, and sinless could ever take the place of another. If a person sinned, then if they took punishment it would be to take care of their own sin. And so only a person who did not have sin can die in place for the sinner. And no man, nor woman on earth, that has ever lived, is living, or ever will live, can qualify. As soon as a person is born, they have sinned, by the sin of Adam, which his sin is in the person’s DNA, and so the sin by being in offspring of Adam. You can say it’s unfair but that is the law of nature. Like, two parents with brown eyes and brown hair have children who are born with brown eyes and brown hair; just like that, we are born from the line of Adam, the father of all mankind, we have the sin DNA in our blood.
But Jesus who was born of the power of the Holy Spirit, through the virgin, Mary, who carried Jesus for 9 months…Jesus did not carry the sin DNA passed down from generation to generation. So Jesus who did not sin, who is God, who came to the world in human flesh, and was perfect in all things; He was the very qualification to take our place. And in taking our place, bearing our sin and sickness, and dying a painful, horrible death; Jesus became our substitution, and through Him, through His blood we are now free, now righteous.
Jesus’ blood cleans us of all sin.
“…The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.” - 1 John 1:7
Jesus’ blood heals our every sickness and disease.
“Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows…He was wounded for transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.” - Isaiah 53:5
Jesus’ blood paves a way for us to now be able to come to God, and have a personal and intimate relationship with Him.
“…Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” - Hebrews 4:14-16
The blood of Jesus covers all of our sins, the blood of Jesus heals every sickness and disease, the blood of Jesus protects us, and the blood of Jesus is life to those who believe!
“Thank You Jesus for shedding Your blood, and dying for me! Thank You that through Your blood we can be renewed and we can have life. Through Your blood I can live sickness-free, disease-free, and have a personal relationship with You, and I know that I am sealed, protected and I thank You for all that You’ve done for me! Your blood seals me, cleanses me, renews me, protects me, and brings me closer to You.”
Apply the blood of Jesus in Your life, and know that we are children of God, and Jesus’s blood flows in our veins, we now have the right to live a healthy, prosperous, blessed, and purpose-filled life through Jesus, and for the glory of God!
Shalom and may the blood of Jesus Christ seal you from head to toe,
