The Weapon of the Blood

  “And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the basin: and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning. For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.” Exodus 12:22-23

There are many weapons of warfare in the world but none are as powerful as the blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus is a mighty weapon of deliverance. Exodus Chapter 12 tells the story of the Passover, and we see the potency of the blood. God instructed Moses to kill a lamb without blemish and sprinkle its blood on the door post and over the house.

The significance of the blood on the door posts was threefold in nature. First, God required it. Second, it was for the safety of the people. And third, it gratified the Covenant.

“And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye 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.” Exodus 12:13 

The Blood Attracts God’s Presence

First, God requires the blood. Every time the blood is called upon for assistance or protection, it always attracts the presence of God. He loves the blood. He always responds to the blood. He must see the blood of Jesus. If He sees it over your heart, your home, your family or your business, He says,“ I will pass over you.”

God is not looking for perfect people. He is not looking for your good works. He is looking for the blood of His Son, and when He sees the blood, He says, “I will pass over you. I will not judge you. I will come to you and I will bless you” (Exodus 23:25; 12:13). He says, “I will blot out your sin” (Isaiah 44:22). 

“For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.” Hebrews 8:12

“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:17, 18

Many people tell me, “I am a good person. I do the best I can to be kind and help others. I have high morals and standards.”My friend, that may be true but you cannot save yourself. Jesus says,“You must be born again”(John 3:7). He said that unless a man is born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God. And His blood is what makes it possible to be born again. The blood is what heals our conscience so that we can serve the living God. Because of His blood we are no longer strangers, but friends:

 “It was through what his Son did that God cleared a path for everything to come to him – all things in heaven and on earth – for Christ’s death on the cross has made peace with God for all by his blood. This includes you who were once so far away from God. You were his enemies and hated him and were separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions, yet now he has brought you back as his friends.” Colossians 1:20-21 TLB

So the big question is: What are you going to do with the blood of Jesus? Remember, when God sees the blood He says,“I will pass over you. I will come to you. I will protect you. I will be an enemy to your enemies and I will be your God.”
