Respect The Blood Of Jesus And Receive Life Part One
For today's bible study we will learn that when the blood of the Lamb Jesus by faith covers any saint daily, the devil will be overcome and defeated. Revelation 12:11 promises that the devil will be overcome and defeated by the blood of the Lamb Jesus. Pictured above we see that the children of God in Egypt believed that the blood of the Lamb Jesus on their door would protect them from the angel of death and any plague.
God blessed the children of God in Egypt and caused the angel of death to pass over their houses when that angel saw the blood of the Lamb Jesus. But the angel of death killed the firstborn children of the Egyptians because the Egyptians did not have the blood of the Lamb Jesus on their doors. Exodus 12:13 says And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
Today in 2014, I pray in Jesus name any friend reading this anywhere will be like the children of God in Egypt and respect the blood of Jesus by saying daily by faith Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ. Next daily tell the devil I am covered by the blood of Jesus that is the same yesterday today and forever and has overcome and defeated you devil. Friends everywhere remember that the blood of Jesus is the most powerful weapon against the devil.
In Jesus name, I guarantee anyone reading this that if you daily see Jesus crucified daily with your heart saying I am crucified with Christ, covered by the blood of Jesus, confessing Jesus as your Lord, that no plague like ebola, aids, or harm from a muslim can come nigh your life. Friend reading this anywhere say right now and believe Psalm 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
Simply stated, the blood of Jesus is our only protection against this wicked world. Today get saved and choose life by confessing Jesus as God as you believe by faith with your heart that Jesus died for you on the cross and rose again. 1 John 5:11-12 promises that Jesus will give you eternal life and says And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
Pictured above we see that when the angel of death in Egypt saw the blood of the Lamb Jesus on the Jews' houses, that angel of death had to pass over that house as the Jews lived. But the firstborn children in the Egyptians' houses were killed by the angel of death because there was no blood of the Lamb Jesus on the Egyptians' houses. The blood of Jesus is important to God and we must respect the blood of Jesus. God only looks to see if a person is covered by the blood of the Lamb Jesus when God's judgment comes to destroy sin.
The angel of death did not come by each house and say knock knock, Does Moses live here? Does Pharoah live here? Does a Jew live here? Does an Egyptian live here? Are you black? Are you white? Are you baptist, methodist, or catholic? What are you? Friends in any nation, it's not what you are; It's if the blood of the Lamb Jesus in on your door and body by faith that will save you from the devil, death, and any plague. God's word says when I see the blood of the Lamb Jesus, (not a person's race, country, riches, or religious denomination), I will pass over you and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you.
The bible tells us at Exodus 12:29 And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharoah that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle. And Pharoah rose up in the night, he and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.
As a side note, notice that the only Egyptians that went to heaven were the firstborn Egyptian babies. Jesus promised that little children before they can understand to choose Jesus and innocent babies will live peacefully in heaven forevermore. Jesus said at Matthew 19:14 Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me; for of such is the kingdom of heaven. Tell that abortion crowd that they're just filling heaven with little roses that'll bloom forevermore in God's kingdom.
Pharoah and the Egyptians told God, why are you so cruel and mean, killing our firstborn sons. God told Pharoah and the Egyptians, don't blame God; Look at the blood of the Lamb Jesus on the Jews' houses. Pharoah, Egyptians, all you had to do for your firstborn children to live was to put the blood of the Lamb Jesus on your doors. The angel of death would have passed over your houses if you put the blood of the Lamb Jesus on your doors.
Notice that it was the blood of the Lamb Jesus that was the difference between the Jews and the Egyptians. The blood of the Lamb Jesus on the Jews' doors gave them life. No blood of the Lamb Jesus on the Egyptians' doors gave them death. Exodus 11:7 tells us But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast; that ye put a difference (this difference was the blood of the Lamb Jesus) between the Egyptians and Israel.
Friends after you have seen how important it is to respect the blood of the Lamb Jesus to receive life and escape the troubles of this wicked world, take time to say Psalm 2:12: Kiss (defined as submit to) the Son (Jesus), lest He be angry, and ye perish from the way when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him. Because God respects the blood of Jesus highly that removes sin, we also must respect the blood of Jesus to avoid God's wrath and judgment when sin is destroyed.
The bible tells us that great punishment is given to people who count the blood of the Lamb Jesus as an unholy thing. Hebrews 10:29 says Of how much sorer punishment suppose ye shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite (defined as insult) unto the spirit of grace? For we know Him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord, and again, The Lord shall judge His people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Remember friends everywhere, Jesus is no respecter of persons. The Egyptians like the Jews could have placed the blood of the Lamb Jesus on their doors by faith and lived. Today any person in any nation can come to Jesus and live by confessing Jesus as God as they believe that Jesus died for them and rose again. Revelation 22:17 says And whosoever will, let him take the water of life (Jesus) freely.
One day God's gonna tell sinners in hell who rejected Jesus, don't complain to me and say my punishment is greater than I can bear. Don't holler to me about how unfair I am. Just look at my Son Jesus hanging out yonder on the cross shedding his blood for sinners. You could have accepted Jesus as your Lord as the blood of the Lamb Jesus covered you and removed all your sins.
To close out today's bible study, let's see how valuable the blood of the Lamb Jesus is to God. You might say what does the picture above saying 70x7 tell us. To understand the meaning of 70x7, let's look at some bible scriptures that use the numbers 7 and 70.
First, let's look at what happened to Cain after he slew Abel. Genesis 4:15 says And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. God said 7 fold vengeance would be taken against anyone who slayed and shed Cain's blood.
And six generations later, another man named Lamech slew a man to his wounding and another young man to his hurt. After Lamech killed these two men, Lamech told his two wives, if Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold. God said 77 fold vengeance would be taken against anyone who slayed and shed Lamech's blood.
The scripture that speaks about Lamech is at Genesis 4:23 and says And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice, ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech, for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt. If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.
And after Jesus came upon earth, Jesus was talking to his disciples and Peter said to Him at Matthew 18:21, How oft shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee; Until seven times; but until seventy times seven. Wow, now Jesus as God was saying that 490 fold vengeance would be taken against anyone who slayed a person's blood. Notice how valuable the shed blood of Cain, Lamech, and especially the Lord Jesus is to God. But, God values and respects the blood of the Lamb Jesus 7 times more than Lamech's blood and 70 times more than Cain's blood. Friends, like God, we also need to respect the blood of Jesus that has cleansed us from all our sins.
But notice that Jesus stated to forgive 70x7 instead having 70x7 vengeance toward your enemies. Today Jesus tells us at Luke 6:27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you. Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
As a final note about 70x7 or 490, note that 7 is called God's perfect number and 10 is called God's complete number. 7x10x7=490 is perfection times completion times perfection, (we're talking about the blood of Jesus). In closing, respect the blood of Jesus and receive life because Hebrews 2:3 says How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard Him.
I pray in Jesus name this little bible study blesses all my friends in the many nations and shows how important it is to respect the blood of our Lord Jesus.
