The Power of Jesus’ Blood

The precious powerful blood of Christ makes available a New EVERLASTING Covenant.
In that New Covenant is forgiveness, cleansing, reconciliation, freedom & life
There is also healing in the atonement through the shed blood of Jesus.
The blood of Christ also covers us providing protection.
We will take a closer look at both today.


who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed. 1 Peter 2:24

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. Exodus 12:13


As he hung, bled & died on Calvary Jesus bore our sins in His body.
He who knew no sin became sin for us (2 Corinthians 5:21) as he paid the price that we could not.
God’s suffering servant, our substitute par excellence paying the sacrifice necessary for our salvation. SELAH
He carried our sicknesses & through the stripes Christ received, & the blood that flowed as a result, we are healed (Isaiah 53:4-5).
Through the precious, priceless, powerful blood of Christ we are saved & healed.
The healing that comes through Christ’s shed blood is physical, emotional & spiritual.
Nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing is beyond the power, & saving reach, of Jesus blood.

Christ’s blood also covers & protects us in similar manner to the blood of the Passover lamb upon the Israelite’s door lintels.
Christ is our Passover Lamb & we are covered & protected from the wrath of God (Romans 5:9).
The punishment we rightly deserved has fallen upon Christ our substitute & Saviour.
God now sees us covered with the blood of Jesus. Christ has taken away our sin in exchange for His righteousness.
In similar manner, He carries our sicknesses so we might be healed in Him.
O what a wonderful saviour. O how precious, priceless & powerful is the blood of Jesus.

Jesus’ blood bought sacrifice atones & through that atonement we receive healing & protection.
We are covered from God’s wrath & stand in his grace & favour.
Healing of every sort is available in, & through Christ.
How wonderful, how marvellous that Jesus willingly shed His precious blood for you & me!!
You are healed, you are covered & you are protected by the blood of the Lamb. Hallelujah!!!

For Reflection

  • Am I believing & trusting that there is healing in & through Jesus’ shed blood?
  • Share testimony about how & when God has healed you.
  • Meditate upon the healing & protection we experience through Christ.

A song related to this theme:


Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Thank you that there is nothing in my life that the atonement through Christ cannot touch or transform.
Jesus thank you that through Your blood I am covered, healed & protected.
Holy Spirit keep me looking unto & fully trusting Jesus my healer & protector.
This I ask In Jesus mighty Name.
Amen
