Genesis 3:21 Also for Adam and his wife the Lord God made tunics of skin, and clothed them.

Revelation 13:8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

For man to have any relationship with God, blood has to be involved. That’s why He had to sacrifice His only son, Jesus Christ to shed His blood on Calvary for us to be where we are today.

God could not let Adam go because He loved man too much; an animal had to die and in this, God revealed His plan of substitution.

Leviticus 17:11 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.’

The blood is the currency used to purchase man’s liberty; redemption did not come cheap. The blood of Jesus is the very life of Jesus.

God took an animal and offered to Himself to appease His anger because man sinned against God. This was pointing to when Jesus would come. We were redeemed by the blood of God Himself. You were not redeemed by corruptible things. (1 Peter 1:18)

As the Lord spoke to us this year that is the year of better things by the blood, you need to know What the Blood is speaking over your life. Among the many speakings are;

  1. Forgiveness

Matthew 26:28 For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

There is forgiveness by the blood. This is where we start from when we start walking with God because we sinned against Him. The blood of Jesus speaks of forgiveness and also deals with guilt.

In case you sin/slip, make use of the blood of Jesus; acknowledge that the blood has paid for your forgiveness and receive it by faith (1 John 2:1-2).

  1. Justification

Romans 5:6- 9… [9] Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, ….

You have no record of the sins you did because the blood wipes it completely. Therefore, when you stand before God, you are like Jesus, like someone who has never sinned because of the blood.

  1. Life

John 6:53 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.

The blood of Jesus speaks life. Every time you take Holy Communion you are speaking life and declaring atonement by the blood of Jesus.

  1. Peace

Colossians 1:20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

The Bible calls Jesus the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6); there is nothing in this world that gives man peace except the blood of Jesus Christ. If you are restless, speak the peace of Jesus Christ. The first peace you need is peace with God and then peace with fellow men.

  1. Protection

1 Corinthians 5:7 Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us.

Protection is available for you through the blood of Jesus. In Exodus 12:13, wherever the angel of death found the blood at the doorpost, He would not enter. This means the spirit of death has no authority over your life as Christ is your Passover lamb. 

  1. Sanctification

Hebrews 13:12

The blood speaks sanctification. You have been set apart for good things, you are not common so you no longer behave like the world does.

As you seek the Lord, keep declaring the speaking of the blood over your life and everything that concerns you.
