"...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.
