THE BLOOD OF THE CROSS

COLOSSIANS 1:20 – AND HAVING MADE PEACE THROUGH THE BLOOD OF THE CROSS, THAT ALL BEINGS IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH WOULD BE RECONCILED OR BROUGHT BACK TO GOD.

WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE BLOOD OF THE CROSS, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS THAT WAS GIVEN ON CALVARY’S CROSS FOR OUR SINS.

HALLELUJAH FOR THE BLOOD! ----- TAKE THE BLOOD OUT OF OUR BODY AND WE DIE!
THEREFORE TAKE THE BLOOD OF JESUS OUT OF THE CHURCH AND THE CHURCH DIES! WE ARE NOT ONLY A PEOPLE OF THE BOOK – WE ARE A PEOPLE OF THE BLOOD. THE BIBLE IS NOT ONLY A BLEST BOOK – IT IS A BLOOD BOOK! YOU CAN CUT US ANYWHERE AND WE BLEED – YOU CAN CUT THE BIBLE ANYWHERE AND IT WILL BLEED! THE BLOOD RUNS FROM GENESIS TO REVELATION!

*THE BIBLE BEGINS WITH THE BLOOD IN GENESIS – WHEN AN ANIMAL WAS SLAIN T0 PROVIDE CLOTHING FOR ADAM & EVE. (IT WAS A CASE OF THE INNOCENT DYING FOR THE GUILTY)

*CAIN & ABEL – GEN. 4 – MAN’S WAY VERSES GOD’S WAY – ABEL BRINGS A BLOOD SACRIFICE AND IS ACCEPTED – CAIN BRINGS HIS WORKS AND IS REJECTED. (MAN IS DOING THE SAME TODAY, TRYING TO GET TO HEAVEN BY THEIR GOOD WORKS – GOOD WORKS EXALT MAN – THE BLOOD OF JESUS EXALTS GOD!)

*NOAH (GEN. 8: 20,21) CAME BY THE WAY OF BLOOD!

*ABRAHAM (GEN. 22:13) CAME BY THE WAY OF BLOOD – HE TOOK HIS ONLY SON ISAAC ON THE MOUNTAIN IN OBEDIENCE TO GOD TO SLAY HIM – BUT GOD PROVIDED A RAM CAUGHT IN THE THICKET
JUST THINK GOD LOVED ABRAHAM SO MUCH THAT HE SPARED HIS SON – BUT HE LOVED THE WORLD SO MUCH THAT HE GAVE US HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON!

*THE PASSOVER (EXODUS 22:13) WHEN I SEE THE BLOOD I WILL PASS OVER YOU – NOT WHEN I SEE YOUR GOOD WORKS I WILL PASS OVER YOU BUT WHEN I SEE THE BLOOD…..
THINK OF THE CHILDREN OF GOD AS THEY PUT THE BLOOD OVER THEIR DOOR POSTS AND HOW THE EGYPTIANS PROBABLY LAUGHED AND MOCKED AND MADE FUN OF THEM – BUT WHEN THE DEATH ANGEL CAME…. PRASIE GOD FOR THE BLOOD!

LEVITICUS 8:23 – BLOOD ON THE EAR (COULD NOT HEAR OR UNDERSTAND THE VOICE OF GOD) BLOOD ON THE HAND (COULD NOT WORK – COULD NOT RAISE YOUR HANDS IN PRAISE)
BLOOD ON THE FOOT (COULD NOT WALK OR BE A WITNESS FOR JESUS)

YES, THE BIBLE BEGINS WITH THE BLOOD IN GENESIS AND ENDS WITH THE BLOOD IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION! REVELATION 19: 11-13 – WHEN JESUS RETURNS TO EARTH RIDING ON A WHITE HORSE HE IS WEARING A ROBE DIPPED IN BLOOD! REVELATION 12:11 – AND THEY OVERCAME THE DEVIL BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB!


AND NOT JUST BLOOD….. I PETER 1:19 – PRESCIOUS BLOOD! NOT JUST ANY BLOOD – BUT THE PRESCIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS – THERE IS NO OTHER BLOOD LIKE IT – IT WAS PURE AND PERFECT BLOOD – IT WAS THE BLOOD OF GOD HIMSELF – ACTS 20:28 – HE PURCHASED THE CHURCH WITH HIS OWN BLOOD – THE BLOOD SHED ON CALVARY’S CROSS WAS THE BLOOD OF GOD! --- PRESCIOUS BLOOD! THE INNOCENT BLOOD!

AND THIS BLOOD WILL NEVER LOOSE ITS POWER! I JOHN. 1:7 – IT DOES NOT SAY HAS CLEANSED US OR WILL CLEANSE US – THE BLOOD OF JESUS CLEANSETH US OR KEEPS ON CLEANSING US FROM ALL SIN!

THE BLOOD CRIES OUT TWO STATEMENTS – THE BLOOD CRIES OUT TO CONDEMN US OR IT CRIES OUT TO SET US FREE!

HAVE YOU BEEN TO JESUS FOR THE CLEANSING FLOW? ARE YOU WASHED IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB? ARE YOU FULLY TRUSTING IN HIS GRACE THIS HOUR? ARE YOU WASHED IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB? WILL YOU BE READY WHEN JESUS COMES? ARE YOU WASHED IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB?

IF NOT COME TO JESUS!
