By Faith We Keep The Passover (2)

Hebrews Chapter 9, Exodus 12:13

"...when I see the blood, I will pass over you..."

God means what He says and says what He means. "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" (Exod 12:13). Only with this plague did Pharaoh let the people of Israel go. When Jesus came into this world, He knew that His miracles could not save any soul. Only His blood-shedding death on the cross can. Many religious leaders nowadays claim that they may draw many people to Christ through signs and wonders. However, miracles, signs and wonders can never deliver any soul from the power of sin and Satan. The Passover sacrifice, the Lamb of God, is our Lord Jesus Christ and only He, His blood and His truth can set us free from sin and Satan.

May God open our hearts and minds to understand, appreciate and highly value the precious blood of our Lord Jesus Christ as God does. Since God is holy and righteous. Can sinful human beings like us stand before Him and be acceptable unto Him? There is no way without the blood of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who died and shed His blood because of our sins. When God saw the blood, He passed over the children of Israel. Those who did not believe nor put the blood as the atonement for their sins on the door posts would have been judged together with unbelievers no matter how many good works they had done, even fasting and praying. We may go to church, read the Bible, and pray to God, but if we have not believed, highly valued and accepted the precious blood of Jesus Christ for our souls personally, and if we have not asked the Lord Jesus Christ to wash and cleanse our hearts by His blood, we cannot be acceptable unto God. When the holy God see Jesus' blood upon us, He is very pleased to accept us. When Satan sees Jesus' blood upon us, he has no ground to accuse us (Rev 12:11). So, it is always wise and safe to hide ourselves in the precious blood of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Are you doing so?

THOUGHT: I am safe and acceptable before God by Jesus' blood.

PRAYER: Lord, help me appreciate and hide myself in Thy blood.
