UNDER THE BLOOD OF JESUS
We are under a new covenant; Jesus tells us “drink from it, all of you, for this is My blood of the new covenant”.
In the Old Testament, they had to kill a goat, sheep, or some animal to make atonement (satisfaction given for wrongdoing) for their sins (wrongdoings).
The animal’s blood covered their wrongdoing, not take it away only covered them. God overlooked their sins when people asked for forgiveness and made a blood sacrifice.
The GOOD NEWS is that we do not have to make blood sacrifices anymore. God saw that man could not keep all His laws and that one man should not be able to bring his whole house into sin.
Salvation should be a personal choice that we make. You see that when Abraham asked if the Lord would also destroy the righteous along with the wicked. Chapter 18:27-32
God has been trying to tell us for a long time to get it right. When man still did not get it, God sent His Son to help us, to teach us and show us how to live in this world but also not to become a part of this world.
The Word became flesh and Jesus, the Son of God entered the world.
The world rejected Him. They talked about Him, they stoned Him, they beat Him, they spat on Him, and with His bruised and bloody body, they marched Him down the street, to shame Him. When that was not enough, they crucified Him because of their unbelief.
God let that happen, so that His plan would be in place.
God saw you and me in Jesus even then! So, today we can stand and say that He took our shame, our bruises, our sins, and by the blood fallen from His stripes, we are healed.
Once, God showed me a picture of a waterfall and said, “That this is how My blood covers you.” You are always under the waterfall of My blood, whatever you do, or were ever you go My blood covers you.
Jesus blood was shaded for us, so we do not need to kill a goat or ox to cover our sins.
Jesus blood washed our sins away once and for all.
Jesus tells us whoever believes in Him is covered by His blood for the remission of their sins.
Whoever; that means you and me; it does not matter if your father or mother believes or not.
If you believe then “the blood that is constant flowing over you” covers you.
“I write God’s message with sincerity and with Christ’s authority and I know that the God who give them to me is watching me.”
