BLOOD, HUMAN, AND DIVINE - Direct Link to the article by Dr. Craig Henderson Click Here.
12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and
by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives
unto the death.
What is FIRST and most foundational for the Overcomer? When in doubt, SHOUT, Blood of Yeshua! Get in the habit of saying Blood of Yeshua! Blood of Yeshua! Blood of Yeshua!
Saints, we are at war. The good news is that we have ALL the nukes in this war with Lucifer, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet. What blood does in our physical bodies underscores the realities of the Power of the Blood of Yeshua in the spiritual relm. I strongly encourage you to CLICK HERE to read Dr. Craig Henderson's most excellent article on BLOOD, HUMAN, AND DIVINE. There are a surprising number of similarities between what human blood does on a physical basis, and what the Blood of Yeshua does for us spiritually.
When going to battle with the demonic hordes of hell, it is no more Mister Niceguy! Shout Blood of Yeshua! That is your nuke in spiritual warfare. Nothing is more important in this time than to know who you are in Him, who you are called to be in Messiah. Who you are in Him has everything to do with the Blood of Yeshua! We all need a better understanding of the POWER OF THE BLOOD OF YESHUA!
Why must you say blood of Yeshua instead of blood of Jesus? The demons know His real name even if churchianity does not. You will be much more effective in spiritual warfare when using His real given Hebrew name, that the apostles and saints of the first century knew Him by. You want to use your NUKE in dealing with the demons. You want to deliver a knockout punch. That knockout punch is the BLOOD OF YESHUA! When you say Blood of Yeshua, 3 totally debilitating realities blast upon that demon consciousness.
1) The Blood of Yeshua totally defeated all the hosts of hell almost 2000 years ago.
2) The Blood of Yeshua guarantees the eternal destiny of all the demonic horde is the eternal lake of fire.
3) They did it to their own selves. Had the princes of this world known they would not have crucified the L-rd of Glory!
Shout BLOOD of YESHUA! Alleluia Yeshua! Praise the L-rd Jesus for giving us the power of the Blood of Yeshua!
In the old covenant we see G-d dealing with the sins of man by the law of substitution. All you should ever tell any Jew is that without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins and Yeshua can forgive your sins. The Holy Spirit, the Ruach HaKodesh, will do all the rest when you deliver these two most foundational truths.
For the blood is the life; and the life is in the blood. For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and G-d has given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. From the garden of Eden, since Adam and Eve sinned, G-d established that almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. We should praise G-d that the princes of this world were ignorant of this. In these glorious last days we dare not be ignorant of this most important truth. It is always in order to shout Blood of Yeshua!
The Jews should understand that it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you. It pointed forward to the ONCE for ALL perfect sacrifice of Yeshua, the Lamb of G-d.
Abraham spoke as a prophet when he answered Isaac. It was at the time of the great test of Abraham's faith, to sacrifice Isaac, Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb.
All of the sacrifices pointed forward to the ONCE for ALL perfect sacrifice of the Lamb of G-d. We must seek a better understanding of this tremendous power which the L-rd gives His saints whereby they may overcome ALL the power of the enemy. If the old covenant had been sufficient, there would have been no need for a new covenant. WOW! Blood of Yeshua! What glorious salvation, redemption, privileges, and POWER is given unto the saints thru the Blood of Yeshua!
Saints know they are now under the new covenant. Otherwise they are not saints. It is sad how few saints realize that today we are in that time that Yeshua described as the GREAT TRIBULATION. Since we are in great tribulation we need a better understanding of the new covenant and the POWER of the Blood of Yeshua!
Saint, do you know you are a priest unto G-d. Do you realize that you have greater privileges and power than Aaron the high priest, and brother of Moses? Aaron could only go into the Holy of Holies once a year. You may go there boldly any time thru the power of the Blood of Yeshua! Into the holy place with the mercy seat of G-d on the ark of the covenant, went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people: The better and greater access and power of the new covenant is not by the blood of goats and calves, but by the Blood of Yeshua. By His own blood, Yeshua entered in once into the holy place, having obtained ETERNAL redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Yeshua the Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your CONSCIENCE from dead works to serve the living God?
And for this cause Yeshua is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
Saints, if your sins have been put under the Blood of Yeshua you may have BOLDNESS to enter into the holiest, the presence of Almighty God, by the Blood of Yeshua. Do you know you can barge in BOLDLY into the very throne room of Almighty G-d, any time? You simply must have confessed all of your sins and gotten them covered by the Blood of Yeshua. You may then go BOLDLY into the very throne room of God Almighty anytime, anywhere, instantly. Don't misunderstand, this is by no means a license to sin. It gives us the power to STOP SINNING! You must stop sinning. However, should you fall into sin, the POWER of the Blood of Yeshua, reconciling you to God the first time you sought mercy from God to remove your sin by the power of the Blood of Yeshua is just as powerful. Just do not sin WILLFULLY, for if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins.
In apostate churchianity today, few have to worry about having received the knowledge of the truth but you are getting it now. Therefore if you have never fully sought the mercy of God thru the Blood of Yeshua, and sought His power to stop sinning, do it now. As a man of God I tell you that God would say to you, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. Time is short. Do it NOW! NOW is the accepted time for your salvation through the power of the Blood of Yeshua!
After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. Then Yeshua said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. You should KNOW you have eternal life through the Blood of Yeshua. It is based on God's integrity, not yours.
Seek the mercy of God, redemption, and adoption into the family of God, through the Blood of Yeshua! Then you will see He is the God of peace. He is the One that brought again from the dead our Lord Yeshua, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the EVERLASTING COVENANT. And Yeshua is the mediator of the new covenant. Not your church. Not your sacraments. Not the virgin Mary. Not some Saint. Not your good deeds. Not your pastor. Not any man of God. It is Yeshua the Messiah, your L-rd and Savior, and your ONLY Mediator. He makes you a saint and His brother or sister, and part of the family of God, by paying the price none of us could pay. He covers your sins by the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. It is the Blood of Yeshua. Power to redeem you. Power to keep you from sinning. Power to make you more than a conqueror in the war with Lucifer, and the Antichrist, and his False Prophet, the Pope in the great tribulation.
But now in Messiah Yeshua ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Messiah. In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Not a license to sin, the power to STOP sinning. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. Not your church. You will not likely find many saints, your redeemed brothers and sisters, in apostate churchianity. However when you meet a real blood bought brother or sister in Yeshua, you will know it by the Holy Ghost, and you will guard their backside and they will guard yours.
And from Yeshua Messiah, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are PAST, through the forbearance of God; In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from ALL sin. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your VAIN conversation received by TRADITION from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Messiah, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
Saint, are you shouting GLORY to God, yet?????
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. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Saints, the angel of the Lord will say of you, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Have the childlike faith of a 2 year old. Walk around every where, from now on, saying Blood of Yeshua! Blood of Yeshua! Blood of Yeshua! Blood of Yeshua! Blood of Yeshua! We don't have to fully understand the power of just saying Blood of Yeshua! In fact, we can NOT fully understand such power. Just KNOW it will fry a demon brain on the spot. You don't have to be oppressed. Blood of Yeshua! Alleluia! Saint, walk in holiness. Walk free of sin. Then you may walk with AUTHORITY to OVERCOME ALL the power of the enemy. Just nuke them with the power of the Blood of Yeshua.
Dr. Craig Henderson is a Chiropractic Physician from Gainesville, Florida, who has been a believer for 30 years. He has written an article drawing a parallel between normal human blood and the Blood of Yeshua. There are a surprising number of similarities between what human blood does on a physical basis, and what the Blood of Yeshua does for us spiritually. Some of these functions include feeding the body, acting as a messenger, removing wastes (sins), and protection from outside attackers (demons). The basic principle of exchange is discussed both physically and spiritually.
By reading this article believers will find a greater understanding of all the functions of the Blood of Yeshua and will find a greater faith in the all-nourishing, all-powerful Blood of Yeshua.

Gene Bartholf's Great Sermon on the Precious Blood of Yehsua The Messiah
This is the most important subject on which I have ever preached. I am going to preach on The Precious Blood of Jesus Christ. What makes the blood so precious?
[Rev 12:10] And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
[Rev 12:11] And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
If you will, go to I Peter, chapter one beginning with verse eighteen. Listen to what the apostle said.
[1 Pet 1:18] Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain manner of life received by tradition from your fathers;
[1 Pet 1:19] But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Notice the word precious. Peter said the blood of Jesus Christ is precious. What makes the blood of Jesus Christ so precious? I am going to give you seven things which do.
The blood of Yeshua is precious because it is the blood of God.
It is not man's blood, but God's blood. Think on that for a moment. I know you want to have me prove that from the scripture. In the Book of Acts chapter twenty, listen to what the Apostle Paul said in verse twenty eight.
[Acts 20:28] Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
Now what makes God's blood so very special? Several things. First of all, His blood was incorruptible. There is corruption in our blood. There was no sin in His blood. That blood was without sin. That blood was undefiled. No corruption, sin, or sickness. Doctors administer blood tests because in many cases the blood test can determine the illness.
Think of it! The only time in the history of the earth that there was blood on the earth which had no sin, no death, no corruption, and no sickness was the blood which flowed through the veins of the Son of God. It was God's blood.
Listen to what the scripture says in Hebrews chapter nine starting at verse eleven. Pay close attention to verse twelve.
[Heb 9:11] But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
[Heb 9:12] Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
[Heb 9:13] For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
[Heb 9:14] How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
What is the emphasis? God's blood. Why is the blood of Yeshua so precious? Because it was God's blood, and different from any blood that the world system knows anything about. It was the precious blood of God contained in a human body.
The blood of Yeshua is precious because it is the blood of the Cross.
Praise The Lord! Now in the Book of Colossians. In the first chapter of the Book of Colossians I will read verse twenty and 21.
[Col 1:20] And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
[Col 1:21] And you, that were once alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
Notice verse twenty. It is not only the blood of God, but it is the blood of the cross. Turn to the Book of Galatians. In Galatians chapter three, listen to this.
[Gal 3:10] For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
How many know that when God gave the book of the law, instead of setting men free it pronounced a curse upon every one of us. Who among us is successful in keeping and meeting all of the demands of the law? Nobody. That is the reason Paul said we have all sinned, and come short of the glory of God. The law came and set a standard which we cannot reach. Instead of bringing a blessing to us it put a curse upon us.
[Gal 3:13] Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
Think about this for a moment. Jesus did not break the law. He did not sin. Yeshua was the sinless Son of God. There was no curse upon Him. But He became cursed when He permitted himself to be the Christ of the Cross. When He was nailed to the Cross, the scriptures say that everyone who is nailed to a cross is cursed. Yeshua became a curse so that He could redeem us who have been cursed.
Yeshua went to the cross to pay the price for you and I, who are under a curse, so that we may be set free from the curse. There is no curse on me because He became a curse in my place! Think on that for a moment, and it will bring blessing to you.
I want to show you something else concerning this blood of the cross. Turn to the Book of Romans. In the fifth chapter beginning with verse nine, listen to this.
[Rom 5:9] Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
[Rom 5:10] For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
[Rom 5:11] And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
Now back up at the top of that Romans chapter 5 it says:
[Rom 5:1] Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
[Rom 5:2] By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
The blood of Yeshua Messiah is precious because it is the blood of God. The blood of Yeshua Messiah is precious because it the blood of the cross. At the cross God did no less than four things.
First, God justified me. When Yeshua Messiah became a curse in my place, that gave God the opportunity to maintain his holiness, and at the same time set me free from my sin. God became both just and the justifier because of the blood of the cross. I am justified, just as if I had never sinned. That is what the blood of the cross did.
Second, God reconciled me. For when I lived without Messiah, I was an enemy. I was alienated from God. Have you ever wondered why people can use the name of Jesus as a curse word? Do you know why? They are enemies of Messiah. They are not His friends. You cannot be born again, and curse Jesus at the same time. The moment you are saved, it will clean up your language.
There had to be a way made for those who were separated from God, and enemies of God to bring us close to God. At the cross that is exactly what Yeshua did. When Jesus became a curse, Jesus lifted the curse from me and brought me into relationship with God. That is a legal process. I am not saved because I have emotional feelings. I am not saved because I utter hallelujah. You can say hallelujah, and be just as lost as a pole-cat.
We must come to the Christ of the cross, and realize that we are saved through what God did, and it is none of the devil's business! Reconciled, and brought into relationship with God. How can darkness and light fellowship together? How can a sinner talk to a sinless Holy God? It cannot be done except for the blood of the cross.
Third, the precious blood of Messiah gave me peace. I do not run around under condemnation. If I stumble and miss the mark I go to the blood of the cross, and leave it there. I walk away, and I am not condemned. I do not go to bed guilty. I do not let the devil hang a jacket on me for what I have done. I say "Lord, I am sorry. Forgive me, and help me not to do it again!" And the blood of the cross cleanses me from sin.
The Lord does not want us to run around with a heavy load on us. You say, "Preacher, you do not know what I have done!" I do not care what you have done. I know someone who can give you peace.
[Rom 5:2] By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
The blood of the cross has made it possible for the love of God to dawn in my heart. It is God's grace. God paid the price I could never pay. If anybody else is glad they will not get the hell they deserve, can you say Amen and Alleluia Yeshua! God keeps pouring favor upon me when I do not deserve it! "Lord, I do not deserve it!" And the answer from the Lord is "I know it! But I am going to bless you anyway because of the cross!" How many are glad for the blood of the cross?
The blood is precious because it is the blood of the Lamb.
Do you remember when John the Baptist introduced Yeshua? John pointed to Yeshua at the Jordan, and John said "I want to introduce you to the One who is coming. Behold Him! He is the Lamb of God!"
In I Peter, the first chapter and verse nineteen Peter says HOW we were redeemed:
[1 Pet 1:19] But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
In the last book in the Bible, in the Book of revelation we get a picture that we should never forget. The passage is in the fifth chapter beginning with verse five. Listen to this!
[Rev 5:5] And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
[Rev 5:6] And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
[Rev 5:7] And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
When we get to heaven, we are not only to see Messiah as a Lion, but we are also going to see him as a Lamb. What does this mean? It is the blood of the Lamb! Under the Old Covenant when a person sinned, that person could get a lamb without blemish. That person brought the lamb to the altar. When the lamb was slain, the priest would lay his hand on the guilty sinner, and his other hand on the innocent lamb so that the lamb died in the place of the sinner.
I am about to bless myself! This is good preaching if you did not know it!
When we get over on the other side, and get a glimpse of Yeshua, we are going to see him as a Lamb, One who took away the sin of the world! The Lamb of God, without spot or blemish! It was the blood of the lamb upon the altar which caused the sinner to walk away absolutely free!
When I come to the blood of the Lamb, I walk away from the lamb absolutely free! Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Can you say Alleluia! Alleluia Yeshua!
The blood is precious because it the blood of atonement. The word atone means to take away. God is God. God has every right to make the rules. This is His Creation. God set up the order that blood had to be spilled. There is no remission of sin without the shedding of blood. In other words, sin could not be taken away unless there was the price of death paid for sin. That is the Law of sin and death. The soul that sins shall die. That is the law. You see the proof every day. Only Yeshua did not stay dead in His grave when He died. The Law of sin and death could not hold Him because He never did sin. Is there anybody else who did not stay dead in their grave and and lives forever? That is the curse of the law of the sin and death. Everybody is a sinner and the proof is that sooner or later everybody dies. The wages of sin is death and every time you pass a cemetery you see the proof. Where will your soul go at the time you die. That is the question you need to get answered TODAY with NO doubts about it. Amen??
If the blood atones for my sin it means that the blood picks up the sin from my life, and takes it away so that I do not have to hassle with it any more.
God in Messiah Yeshua has atoned for my sin. Christians should walk around in victory every moment because of the blood. We need to often plead the blood.
Do not struggle with your weakness. Claim and plead the blood which is stronger than your weakness.
When you and I bring our weakness and frailty to the blood, the blood of Yeshua is powerful. If you will stay under the blood of Yeshua, you will be delivered from your hassle. It will take away your sin. If you are hearing this and you are struggling with drugs or alcohol, if you will bring that hassle to the blood of Yeshua. The blood of Yeshua has the power to take it away. If you are having a battle with lying, bring it to the blood.
You say "What am I going to do about the lying? I lie when I should not." Take it to the blood of Yeshua. If you are having a problem with a habit, do not struggle with the habit! Take the habit to the blood of Yeshua. Bring it to the blood of atonement, and say "by the power of the Blood of Yeshua, take away this thing!" Keep it away, and the blood will take it away. It will happen! The Lord does not want His people to be under bondage. That is what makes the blood so precious.
I plead the blood of Yeshua! Alleluia for the power of the Blood of Yeshua! When in doubt, SHOUT -- BLOOD OF YESHUA! Alleluia! I do not have the strength or ability. I am not able, but the blood of Yehsua is the atoning power. What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
The blood is precious because it is the blood of propitiation. Yes PROPITIATION! Now that is a $64 word . What is the blood of propitiation? We find that word propitiation in Romans. I could give you another $64 word for propitiation like expiation, but that would not help much. What is propitiation? It is an important word. Expiation or propitiation emphasizes the removal of guilt through a payment of the penalty. Propitiation emphasizes the appeasement or averting of God's wrath and justice. Both words are related to reconciliation, since it is through Messiah's death on the cross for our sins that we are reconciled to a God of holy love.
Listen to what it says in the third chapter of the Book of Romans and verse twenty three listen to these words.
[Rom 3:23] For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
[Rom 3:24] Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Messiah Yeshua:
[Rom 3:25] Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
What does propitiation mean? It actually means mercy-seat. Even better than mercy-seat it means covering. To propitiate means to cover. On the top of the Ark of the Covenant, there were two cherubims with wings outstretched and meeting in the center. Between the cherubims was the mercy-seat. When God was present, there was a fire.
The mercy-seat was made effective when blood was sprinkled on it. The High Priest came in once a year with the blood on the Day of Atonement which was the day sin was taken away. The High Priest approached the Ark of the Covenant, and sprinkled blood on the mercy-seat. When the High Priest sprinkled the blood it activated the mercy of God for the whole nation of Israel! When the High Priest left the Holy Place, the High Priest left through the veil. When the people saw the High Priest, they knew that God had accepted the blood on the mercy-seat. Now mercy would reign in Israel for one whole year! When Jesus went back to heaven, He told Mary not to touch Him because He had not been back to the Father yet.
The Lord went to a heavenly altar. The Lord went to the heavenly mercy-seat, and sprinkled blood on the mercy seat. How do we know the blood was accepted? Because when the Day of Pentecost was fully come, the Holy Ghost came as the Lord promised would happen. The Holy Ghost declared what Jesus promised had taken place in the glory-world. Now all of us are covered with the mercy of God!
You say "Preacher, do you know what so-and-so did?" Yes, I do! "What are you going to do about it?" Nothing! "What do you think God is going to do about it?" God has already done it! Blood was sprinkled on the mercy-seat! Some of us who point fingers at someone who is failing would do well to be careful! We are in danger of blaspheming the blood on the mercy-seat.
There is only one sin that can commit where God will not have anything to do with you. That is to take the mark of the beast in your right hand or forehead. Otherwise you cannot sin a sin so bad that God will not have anything to do with you. Why? His blood is greater than anything you and I can even think about doing. I do not ask God for justice. I ask for mercy.
Have you heard the old story about the woman who went to the photographer? She said "The picture you took of me does not do me justice." He said "Ma'am, you do not need justice. You need mercy!"
That is the reason the bible calls the blood, the blood of sprinkling. The blood of sprinkling means that the High Priest, who is the Lord of Glory, went to the heavenly altar. He sprinkled not the blood of bulls and goats. He sprinkled his own blood!
Can I throw this in for you to think about it? There is a video of how Ron Wyatt found the ark of the covenant. Jeremiah had taken it from the first temple 600 years before Messiah died on the cross. When Yeshua died there was an earthquake. That earthquake split the ground 6 inches from the cross of Messiah. When the centurion stuck the spear in Yeshua's side, John testified that blood and water came out. That 3 pints of blood and water ran down the cross and down that crack from the earthquake and sprinkled on the mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant that Jeremiah put there 600 years before Messiah was crucified. The blood on the Mercy Seat proves that we are redeemed. The blood of Yeshua prove the love of God for all who will grab hold of it. Whosoever will. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so! If you are redeemed can you say Alleluia Yeshua! If you don't understand this, let me know so that I can further explain it. Nothing is more important.
I also some times think about the blood which ran down over His face. Yeshua poured out His precious blood on that old rugged cross for me and you and WHOSOEVER WILL recieve the truth of the love God expressed by the precious blood of Jesus. Why doesn't everybody love and want to obey and serve a God who loves us that much. Most people just don't know the truth about God. How do you get to know the truth about God. Not by listening to me or any other preacher. You must read the Bible. Yes, in these days of strong delusion the only teacher or preacher you can trust is the Holy Spirit of God giving you the truth as you read the King James Version, THE Authorized, Holy Bible. That is why it is Holy. It is the word of THE HOLY GOD who cannot lie.
I know is the blood of Yeshua is on the mercy seat. It is called the blood of propitiation. The word propitiation means covers. The only way the accuser of the brethren can get to me is if I get out from under the blood.
May I give you the next two? This is the greatest sermon I have ever preached!
The blood is precious because it is the blood of the covenant. Do you know that a testament is of no value unless the testator dies? My will is not worth the paper it is written on as long as long as I am running around. Do you know when it activates? When I die it goes into motion. You say "Who is going to get what you got?" I am not going to tell you.
Every covenant or contract is activated by death. When Jesus made a new covenant, He activated it when He died. It became the blood of the covenant. When Jesus died, the new testament was put into motion.
There are five things about this covenant which makes the blood so precious.
First, in the New Covenant we have a changeless priesthood. In the Old Covenant, the priest could only be a priest for some number of years till he died. About the time a priest knew how to be a good priest, he died. But under the New Covenant we have a priest who never dies! He ever liveth to make intercession for us. Can you say Alleluia Yeshua!
Second, we have a better tabernacle. In the Old Covenant they ministered in an earthly tabernacle. Under the New Covenant the priest ministers in a heavenly tabernacle. I do not pray to an earthly altar. I pray at a heavenly altar.
Third, we have a better promise. The New Covenant is a better promise. Don't drag me back under the bondage of the Old Covenant when I have a new one. However the way I demonstrate my love to God is that I now have the power of the Holy Ghost to KEEP and DO His 10 Commandments. Do I ever sin? Folks you are looking at and listening to one great big sinner. Yes, I sin. But I don't sin as much as I used to. And I don't have to sin at all if I use the grace of the power of the Holy Spirit to say no to sin. I have the power of the Holy Ghost to say NO to sin. I have to power of the blood of Yeshua to stop sinning. I now delight in God's Law. You don't love those 10 commandments without the Holy Ghost! Can somebody say Amen!
Fourth, we have a better sacrifice. The best sacrifice which could be offered under the Old Covenant was a spotless lamb. The sacrifice offered under the New Covenant is the precious Lamb of God. The once for all PERFECT sacrifice. If you understand this can you say Alleluia Yeshua!
Fifth, we have a better mediator. Our mediator ever lives to make intercession for us. He pleads my case. The blood is precious because it is the blood of the new covenant. I was saved by covenant declaration. I have a legal right to say I am saved. Someone might say "Oh, you folks are just emotional!" We are emotional because of what we know! The blood of Yeshua is precious.
The blood is precious because it is blood of redemption. What does that mean? It means there is a price which must be paid to get us out of the devil's pawn shop. The devil has a legal hold on. There is a price. The word says that God loved us so much that He paid the price so we could become His own property.
Paul said you are bought with a price. It was not silver or gold, but by the precious blood of Jesus Christ who has redeemed us. Do not get down in the mouth if you ain't somebody! Don't ever think you do not amount to much! That is baloney! You are important. You say "How do you know?" Because God so loved you that He paid a price for you. He redeemed you, and brought you out of darkness into the marvelous light. What a great price God paid for you saint. He bought you with the precious Blood of Messiah Yeshua.
The blood is precious because it is the blood of redemption. I am redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.
Redeemed, how I love to proclaim it!
Redeemed, by the blood of the Lamb!
Redeemed through His infinite mercy
His child and forever I am!
Redeemed and so happy in Jesus!
No language my rapture can tell
I know that the light of His presence
With me doth continually dwell -- Redeemed
I think of my blessed redeemer!
I think of Him all the day long!
I sing because I cannot be silent,
His love is the theme of my song. -- Redeemed
I know I shall see in His beauty
The King in whose law I delight,
Who lovingly guardeth my footsteps
And gives me a song in the night. -- Redeemed
I am redeemed, redeemed
Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb
His child and forever I am.
If you are glad for the precious blood, will you say amen? Will you remember my sermon the rest of your life? You see, that is the difference between life and death. It is not funny feelings or even answers to prayer. We are what we are because of the precious blood.
Nothing else can wash us, cleanse us, save us, redeem us. It is at the cross where I first saw the light. This week, plead the blood of Yeshua. Claim the blood. Stay under the blood. Sing about the blood. Rejoice in the blood. Thank God for His blood! And all the people said, AMEN!!!
