"To Him who loves us and freed us from our sins by His blood, and made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve His God and Father--to Him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen."--Revelation 1:5-6 It has always been the blood and it will always be about the blood! It was the blood that excited John so much that he felt ablaze with the fire of heaven so much that He cried out "To Him be all the glory and power forever!" We, also must feel something of what he felt, see something of what he saw, and feel the fire that moved him to exclaim such praise! First,He has washed us in His blood. The blood provides for us more than we can ever imagine. When we are born again, something happens in our heart, forgiveness and cleansing by the blood of Jesus. The power in the blood has the power of full deliverance even from the stain of sin and washes us whiter than snow. Secondly, the power of the blood is manifested in preparing us to reign and rule in the kingdom, "He has made us kings and priests." It was His blood that defeated sin, and the blood bestowed on Him the right to rule as King in the glory. It is this power that the blood has, that it touches us and produces in us, by faith, the disposition and fitness to become priests and kings! Thirdly, He loves us! Love is the greatest glory of salvation, that the one who is love wants to honor us with His love and friendship. He wants to fellowship with us as family and fill our hearts with His divine love! Lastly, we need to bend our ear to the sound coming from heaven, the song of heaven being sung over us. Let's hold this in our heart so we can rejoice in thanksgiving with joy unspeakable and full of glory. Lord Jesus thank you for the blood!!!
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
