You’re in a courtroom and the judge asks you, “What is your plea?” What do you say? What can you say? In this particular case, this case called humanity, the law says, “you’re guilty”. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
But God! . . . in order to satisfy the greatness of His love for mankind made a way, a way that is beyond human comprehension so the guilty can walk free rather than pay the debt for his/her sin. What is that way? It is the precious Blood of Jesus, for it is the ONLY agent of our salvation! It truly is our only plea for salvation, healing, provision, restoration, deliverance, protection, and prosperity! What do you plea? Your defense attorney (Jesus) instructs you on what to say. I plead “The Blood!”
The gavel comes down and the judge declares, “Not guilty!” You see, it's not about our works or our own merit. NOTHING from God is. We want to guard against both ends of the spectrum - one of not feeling worthy to receive, and two of feeling like provision or healing should be ours because of the life we lead and how "good" we're doing. May our outlook and expectation always be, "Just as I am without one plea, but that Thy Blood was shed for me!" What is our plea when we come to the end of ourselves and realize that we need a Savior? The Blood of Jesus!
The Old Testament Jews would dip a hyssop branch in the blood of the sin sacrifice and then apply it to the doorposts of their home. By doing so, death and destruction would pass over the house because it could not cross the blood line. When God brought the Israelites out of Egypt, the book of Psalms tells us that there was not one feeble among them and they came out with the silver and gold of Egypt. This tells us there is healing in the blood! This tells us there is provision and prosperity in the blood! Can you imagine? There were millions of people that came out of Egypt and from the youngest to the oldest, not ONE was sick. Not one. The blood applied by faith in the Old Testament was only a type and shadow of what was to come. It pointed to the Blood that would be shed at Calvary by our Lord Jesus Christ! We must believe and live our lives as though the cross really did make a difference! Salvation was not an afterthought in the mind of God.
The Bible says that Jesus was “the lamb slain from the foundation of the world”. That means provision for everything we have need of was made ready and given before there was ever a need. Did you get that? Provision was made before that need in your life ever manifested! One of my favorite quotes from Billye Brim is, “God never plays catch up with the devil”. Amen!
Whatever your need is today, provision for it was made available before the foundation of the world with Precious Blood! Your freedom from bondage to sin and death was purchased with Precious Blood! 1 Peter 1:18: For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. 19 It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. 20 God chose him as your ransom long before the world began, but now in these last days he has been revealed for your sake. Honor His Blood!
Make much of His Blood and His Blood will make much of you! By faith, draw that Blood line around your family with the words of your mouth and be assured that Jesus and His Blood truly is enough to save, keep and bless you all the days of your life and throughout all of eternity! You ARE free! When Satan comes knocking, open your mouth and show Him the Blood over you and your family! He has no answer for it! It is his complete defeat and your complete victory!
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony . .
