The Passover that was instituted in Egypt is one of the most powerful demonstrations of protection that one receives from the blood of Jesus. When the blood is applied according to God and His Word, God will always respond in a positive way.
In the Old Testament, the priest had to take a lamb and sacrifice it to the Lord. Jesus Christ is both High Priest and lamb and as a lamb he died, but as the High Priest, He entered into the Holiest of Holies in the Tabernacle in Heaven; He entered with His own blood. The Apostle Paul continues to show us the importance of the blood and what boldness it gives us. Hebrews 10:19-20 states that we, have boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh When the blood of Jesus is applied, the strategy for victory is mapped out.
There is absolutely no other way to God other than through His son, Jesus, blood, for it is the life of all flesh, the blood of it is for the life thereof. For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul (Leviticus 17:11).
The first time Jesus shed his blood was while He prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane when His sweat became as drops of blood. The second time was when He was before Pilate and was scourged, the third time Jesus shed blood came shortly after when they placed a crown of thorns on His head. The fourth and fifth times were the piercing of Jesus hands. The nailing of His feet was the sixth time he shed blood. The sixth and seventh time was during the piercing of His sides.
Jesus Christ did a complete work when he shed his blood for you and I. There is power in the blood of Jesus and this blood is important for everything.
For example, no one can receive an anointing unless they come through the blood of Jesus. We may have titles and credentials behind our names however, the anointing on our lives come only because of the blood of Jesus Christ. The blood of Jesus will never lose its power. The blood of Jesus provides the only solution to our problems. The blood of Jesus has the power to release the grip of great curses, pay off debts once and for all. We are justified, we are forgiven we are spared from God’s wrath; we are spiritually alive; we are at peace with God; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him; we are cleansed. We have the power to overcome the enemy and we are no longer under the curse of the law. We no longer are strangers to the covenant of promise. We have been moved from the enemy’s kingdom into the Kingdom of God. We have gained the unmerited favor of the Lord and we have been declared righteous. We have been justified; we are able to come close to God. We can participate in sweet communion. We are free.
Jesus testifies on our behalf that we are clean. We are no longer condemned; we have been separated from the world and declared Holy unto God. We have the victory because of the blood of Jesus. We can enter boldly into the Holies of Holies. We see from scriptures how important the blood of Jesus is. We are healed in every area of our lives, glory be to God the Father and the Holy Spirit.
