The Blood Advantage (IV):
“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, New King James Version).
This is the key Bible verse for the “Come and See” devotional today.
The Most High is a just God and requires a faithful witness regarding His promises to His children. There is sure proof of His will for us to remain unbeaten. Apostle Paul wrote: “this will be the third time I am coming to you. By the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established.” (2nd Corinthians 13:1, New King James Version).
In our life on earth, the Blood of Jesus witnesses against the works of the devil and his fallen angels. The Bible says: “and there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.” (1st John 5:8, New King James Version). The fury of the devil against mankind is limited only to this world and there is no place for him in heaven: all his wrath disperses when the Blood of Jesus is invoked.
When we declare the Blood of Jesus against the devil, it stands as a witness against him. No wonder the Bible clearly states: “who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.” (Book of Romans 8:33-35, English Standard Version). The voice of the Blood of Jesus Christ is our winning advocate.
However, we are at a disadvantage regarding our lack of knowledge and understanding of the wicked tactics of the devil. After all, he has been operating for a long time, and for long before any of us were created. However, even if he recalls the sins of our forefathers and parents against us, then the Blood of Jesus Christ makes his claim futile. The bible says: “For if a man belongs to Christ, he is a new person. The old life is gone. New life has begun” -2nd Corinthians 5:17 [New Life Version]. You are a new person because God says so!
The Blood of Jesus turns away all forms of accusations and blame brought against us. This was the crucial advantage that Job lacked when the devil accused him before God. The Bible reads: “since, therefore, we have now been justified by his Blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.” (Romans 5:9, English Standard Anglicised Version). The blood of Jesus is strong and effective enough to shield you away from God’s wrath, no wonder He sits with the Most High God forever to make intercession for us.
Let us pray: “Father, Let the Blood of Jesus annul every voice speaking against my destiny,” in Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen.
