Topic: The Blood That Speaks Better Things [November 2, 2016]
“But ye are come unto mount Si-on, To the general assembling and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, … And to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel” (Heb. 12:22-24).
Now notice what the text says: “… the Blood … that SPEAKETH better things than that of Abel” (Heb. 12:24). Why would the Bible say blood speaks? How can blood speak?
In Lev. 17:11 God tells us that the life of the flesh is in the blood. It means that life is in the blood. And you know anything that has life can speak. The Bible says that the blood of Abel spoke. Similarly, the blood of Jesus spoke and still speaks.
As you journey through today, may the blood of Jesus speak for you, in Jesus name. There are evil blood spilled in the past, by our fathers or ourselves, that is speaking evil against us day and night. But it really does not matter how loud the evil blood crying against you is, the blood of Jesus is more powerful and that more powerful blood is speaking for you today, in the name of Jesus. The blood of Jesus speaks better things.
However, for this speaking blood to speak for you you must First be wash by the blood, this happens when you accept Jesus as you Lord and personal savior and then ask Him to wash you with the His blood. The scripture says we have come unto the blood of sprinkling. You must come unto the blood of sprinkling.
If you have not given your life to Jesus, do that now. Say oh Lord, come into my life and save me from sin. Forgive me and wash me with the blood of Jesus, in Jesus name amen.
Congratulations if you said that prayer, you are born again. Now that you are born again, you must forsake your old evil way and continue to walk in the light of God’s word. I want to help you in this walk as you grow in Jesus. Call or write to me now.
