Revelation 19:13 “He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God”.
Continued from yesterday. I want to remind us of the benefits and blessings that are ours through the shed blood at Calvary. Is our life under the blood covering?
3. Speaking good things on our behalf. We understand from Hebrews 12:24 that the blood of Jesus has a voice. It’s not a voice of condemnation, but a voice that cries out mercy, favor, goodness, acceptance, promotion, prosperity, healing and wholeness.
For example, when you submit a job application and you soak the application in the blood of Jesus, it can carry the voice of acceptance, not rejection, with your application. Where doctors have given you a bad report and you cancel that evil report with the blood of Jesus, the blood of Jesus can speak healing and wholeness into your life, not sickness and death. Where people are carrying terrible reports about you, the blood of Jesus can nullify every evil word uttered against you and speak good and positive things about you that can lead to your being highly favored.
Always cover everything about you in the blood of Jesus. It can speak well of you and for you.
4. Protection from evil. The blood of Jesus is a divine mark of protection. Those who have entered into a covenant relationship with Christ have this special mark of protection. In Exodus 12:12-13, the Israelites were instructed to use the blood of a lamb and put it on the sides and top of their doorframes and it would serve as a sign of protection for them. When the destroyer sees the blood, He would pass over every house with this blood covering; no destructive plague would come near their dwelling place. If the blood of a lamb could do this, imagine what the blood of Jesus can do.
Everyday evil abounds. This is why we need this mark of protection. It is not available to everyone. For God to see the blood on our life, we must be a child of God. We must have given our life to Christ. As accidents, sickness, tragedies, calamities and disasters are taking place, may they all pass over us because we carry this powerful mark of protection.
5. Victory. Revelation 12:11 tells us of the assurance of victory we have over the devil through the blood of Jesus. It is this assurance of victory that makes Satan regret the death of Jesus Christ. If the devil had any insight and foresight to know the great victory the blood of Jesus would bring, he would have fought against the crucifixion of the Lord of Glory (1 Corinthians 2:6-8).
Whatever battle, problem or challenge we are facing, whatever the attacks and opposition we have been going through, God is reminding us today that there is power in the blood. Wonder working power to save, heal, deliver, set free and grant total victory is in the blood of Jesus.
As we bring our life under the blood covering, may the blood of Jesus strengthen our relationship with the Lord, shield us from all evil, and speak abundant blessings into our life.
