Apply The Blood

 

"Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt."

Exodus12:13 [NKJV]

 

In the Old Testament, in order for the Jews to be protected and spared the judgment on their firstborn, they had to literally kill a lamb, and put the lamb's blood on the door posts and lintels.

Then, the judgment would then pass over their houses and they would be protected.

 

Today, we don't have to sacrifice a lamb.

We are protected by the precious blood of Jesus.

He is our perfect, un-blemished Lamb.

And it is His torn flesh and His spilled blood that

form a hedge of protection around us.

 

We need to declare it though.

We must apply the blood at home.

We must apply the blood over our families.

We must apply the blood at our job.

 

When the enemy sees the blood of Jesus, he will flee.

The enemy fears the blood of Jesus.

 

"In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence"

Ephesians 1:7 [NKJV]
