The Blood of the Covenant
Thursday 13th April 2023
For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given you the blood to sprinkle upon the altar as an atonement for your souls; it is the blood that makes atonement because it is the life. Leviticus 17:11 TLB
The Word says above that the life is in the blood.
Blood is the spiritual symbol of life.
In almost all cultures worldwide, blood is used as a medium of receiving spiritual breakthroughs, because it is a sign of sacrifice. This is because blood is not usually spilled until there is the death of an animal, or human.
For spiritual purposes, this death is usually a sacrifice. A life for another’s life.
From ancient cultures, the most deeply spiritual sacrifice was human sacrifice.
However, the Bible tells us that the blood of Jesus spilled for us is greater than that of any man:
Hebrews 12:24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
The blood of Jesus is on an entirely different level. The Word tells us that an eternal covenant was brought into place by that blood.
Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, Hebrews 13:20 ESV
The blood of Jesus speaks better things. It has awesome power. It gives us the power to conquer all the power of the evil one.
And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. Revelation 12:11 ESV
The blood of Jesus paid the price for the New Man, the New Creature who is superior to the devil, to come alive. It paid the price for us to become righteous and washed from all sin, before God.
And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us, and washed us from our sins by his blood Revelation 1:5
I am a new creation in Christ Jesus. By the blood I am saved into this life I live now, full of power and glory in Him. My sins are forgiven. I have been washed clean, and I live a life deserving of His precious blood, shed for me, Amen.
