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,
