Romans 5:8-11 says, but God commended his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For 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. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
Whoís blood does your hands reap forgiveness on?
Matthew 27:24-25 says to be careful how you judge and the decisions that you make. They brought Jesus to Pilate but wanted Pilate to take responsibility for Jesusí life, but he refused the blood on his hands, although Jesus was the blood and the blood covered us, he submitted his self to the cross because it was already under the blood. So if things happen in our lives and we being submitted to Christ, then it was already under the blood.
Watch your deeds.
When you do your deeds to the glory and honor of God you think right, you speak right, you treat everybody right, you see people right, and you hear the right things. You donít talk about your sisters and brothers and you donít let anyone else talk about them to you. You hear right, your whole being is lined up with the word. Itís under the blood. How will your deeds be judged at that day, will God say depart or will he say well done?
Itís under the blood, your afflictions. In Hebrews 11:35-37, women received their dead raised to life again, others were tortured, not accepting deliverance that they might obtain a better resurrection and other had trials of cruel mocking and scourging, yea moreover of bonds and imprisonments. They were stoned, they were sown asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword; they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, and tormented. No matter what you go through, itís under the blood. These little things we call afflictions, is not. They donít compare with what our forefathers went through. None of us has ever lost our head for the gospel sake. Never lost a body part or thrown in prison for preaching, so take it and make it. Itís under the blood.
II Corinthians 8:2, how that in a great trial of affliction, the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty, abounded unto the riches of their liberality, no matter whatís facing you in your life, your joy in Christ, abounding in faith, in utterance, in knowledge, in all diligence and in your love and free spirit, you carry on because you know itís under the blood.
Your weakness is under the blood. Matthews 26:41 tells us to watch and pray that you will not enter into temptation, the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. God knows what we are made of, from the beginning he made man, we are weak through disobedience to the word, but in that we were weak, Christ died for us, so all of our weakness is under the blood. The blood brings us grace. Jesus said, his grace is sufficient for us. In II Corinthians 12:9, for his strength is made perfect in weakness. So when we are weak, then we are strong. Paul says he takes pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christís sake, for when he is weak then he is strong. We donít realize the strength Christ released in our lives through his blood. The blood will take you through if youíd only put your weakness under the blood. If you canít say no to anything wrong, I dare you to put it under the blood. Put all your problems under the blood, all your hurts, pain, misdeeds, mistrusts, everything.
All that I am, itís under the blood
All that I am not, itís under the blood
All of your afflictions are under the blood
All of your tribulations are under the blood
All of your downfalls are under the blood
All of your weakness is under the blood
All of your deeds are under the blood
For you are dead and your life is hid in Christ, so everything in your life is under the blood. When you do your deeds to the glory and honor of God and things donít always go the way you want it to, donít worry about it. If you do it with the right motives and intents, then itís under the blood. If a man donít render to you equal for your worth, or donít treat you right, donít worry about it, itís under the blood.
If a man donít render to you equal for your worth, or donít treat you right, donít worry about it, itís under the blood.
Walk in wisdom toward them that are without sense. People speak out of ignorance. Things they know about and donít know about. Something happen in people lives that they have no control over, and everything happens. God allows, so itís under the blood. Who are you to judge? Who are you to talk against it? You donít talk against God because itís under the blood, as everything that happens in our lives, is under the blood.
Everybody talks wildly and foolishly about another, but nobody fervently wants to labor in prayer for one another as true Christianity calls for. The Bible says we should love our neighbor as ourselves. Our neighbor is anyone who lives near or next to us.
How do you know when someoneís life is under the blood and theyíve been blood washed?
1. There is a lack of stains, the blood cleanses us from sin, shows vindication, because of his grace and mercy, you have his favor
2. The way they smell, they have an aroma that comes out of a sanctified life, usable by nobody else but God. You have been set apart. An odor oozes out of them that make God happy and make him move. When you squeeze them itís sweet. Holiness is not only sweet to smell, but it is sweet when you oppress them, squeeze them, mash them, press them, the more aroma comes out
3. They are thankful, they know how significant the blood is, and they know without the blood, I would die. The judgment of God passes over them. The blood makes God know, I belong to him. The blood covers. They are thankful to be set free, donít entertain the foolishness of the Devil.
4. They have a glad countenance even in the midst of everything. You look good, as the psalmist in Psalms 149:4 tells us, God will beautify the meek with salvation.
5. Their disposition always show them hanging on no matter how things look, they look beyond the stars, and the silver lining. They never give up on hope. Regardless of what anyone says that sounds so final, but they know that God is still in control.
In order for the blood to be in your life, you have to be willing to lay down your life, you must die. A testament is no good until a person dies for the will to be in force. Just as our will must die for Godís will to be in full force of our lives. Our lives must become that tabernacle, we are the church, and we are the house of God. You have got to be under the blood. We are all vessels and should be vessels of honor that God will use us in the ministry. You have got to be holy, sanctified, and blood applied. You can see the blood because youíve changed.
