Are YOU WASHED in the Blood of the Lamb?

Tomorrow isn’t promised, so TODAY is the DAY! It’s my prayer that you choose to put your faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior, the Son of God, who died on the cross for our sins and was raised from the dead on the 3rd day!

JESUS Messiah – Yeshua Hamaschiach (Hebrew) is COMING! Are you covered in the blood of Jesus? Have you repented of your sins so you can stand before Heavenly Father? Have you put your faith and trust in Jesus?

Scriptures are from KJV (King James Translation of the Bible).

1 John 1:7 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.

Matthew 26:26-28 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. 27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; 28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

When Jesus and His disciples shared the Last Supper together, he told them that HIS BLOOD was the new testament (covenant). Our God – Heavenly Father has been making covenants with His people since Genesis! A covenant is a strong and solemn binder between two people or peoples.

Because a covenant is a bond between peoples and this binding is a promise that involves God, the breaking of the covenant has consequences; people break covenants, but Heavenly Father NEVER breaks HIS covenants. When God made a covenant with Abraham in the Old Testament, he swore on his own self: Hebrews 6:13-14 For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,14 Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.

One of my favorite examples of a Covenant in the Old Testament is between the son of King Saul and David who later became King of Israel.

1 Samuel 18:3-4 Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul.And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was upon him, and gave it to David, and his garments, even to his sword, and to his bow, and to his girdle.

So when Jesus shared the Last Supper with His Disciples, He made a “NEW TESTAMENT” or in some translations new “COVENANT”.

To understand covenants more clearly, I suggest that you read and study these 13 books in the Bible. Start with 3 books of the Bible that are found in The Books of Moses: Genesis, Exodus and Deuteronomy. More Old Testament Covenants are also found in Joshua, Ruth, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Isaiah and Hosea. The New Testament books that talk about covenants are Matthew, Romans, Galatians and Hebrews.

The last two people who stood in the presence of God and walked with God in the Garden of Eden were Adam and Eve. Once they’d sinned, they could no longer enjoy this privilege. They had no idea of what exactly death was until God killed some animals and made them clothing from the skins of the animals. They were then banished from the garden and ever since man has been plagued by a sinful nature.

In the Old Testament, the shedding of blood or sacrifice at the alter of God was that of bulls, goats, sheep and doves. This ceremony was a graphic reminder and an atonement or a covering of the sins of the people; what I’d refer to as a wake-up call to the gravity of sin.

When Jesus died on the cross to save us from our sins, his blood became the New Testament; a covering of the sins of those who believe, repent, follow and have faith in Him. This new covenant put an end to ritual sacrifice found in the Old Testament because He was the ultimate sacrifice. Because of the sinful nature of man, no human can stand in the presence of God! This is why Jesus – Yeshua shed his blood for us…HE loved us that much!

1 John 1:7 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.

Colossians 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.

Ephesians 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

When we become believers, we are now citizens of the Kingdom of God! Our faith has saved us, the Holy Spirit comes to live in us and we are no longer citizens of this world! We lean on the truths found in Scripture and we listen to the Spirit as it works inside of us…read the following Scripture and let it sink in.

Luke 17: 20-21 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

Yes! He will be bringing His Kingdom back to earth, it says so in Revelation, that those who are followers and believers of Christ, both dead and alive shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye and we’ll return to earth with Jesus so that the earth and it’s inhabitants can be judged and then the earth will be handed back to Heavenly Father by His Son. When we pray the Lord’s prayer, we express knowledge that we know that our Father’s Kingdom is coming. We the children of God are His Kingdom! Because we are cloaked in the righteousness of His son Jesus, His Will…will be done on this earth as it is in Heaven. The earth will be renewed and we’ll once again have the privilege of walking, talking and communing in harmony with our Father in Heaven.

Mark 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

This verse tells us why it’s so important to share the Gospels and the Kingdom of God with our fellowman while there’s still time.

1 Peter 1:8-9 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

It’s just a fact that the Holy Spirit comes to dwell inside you when you become a follower of Jesus and His Spirit gives us His Wisdom and His Revelation as we read and study His WORD! We then rejoice in the knowledge that He LOVES us! In the “Old Testament”, before the “New Testament” or covenant was revealed by Jesus to His disciples, the children of God recognized that a Savior would come someday and we would live forever in the Kingdom.

Psalm 28:7 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him. Verse 6 of Psalm 23 cherishes the knowledge that those who trust in the Lord will dwell in HIS house forever!

Jesus is first in my life and as a result, my existence in this world is bearable; I want nothing less than every day of my life to bring Him glory. I'm in continuous watch and prayer for Him to come again. My desire is to share the Kingdom of God with anyone who will listen...time is short...He's coming soon! I love the beauty of the planet He made for mankind. I know that some day when He comes again He'll destroy it, but in the meantime I do my best to treat His gift with respect. I love people, animals, birds, trees (I'm a tree hugger), flowers (roses are my favorite), the snow, the rain, the wind and the sunshine. I realize how blessed I am to be living now and also blessed to be born in a country that allows freedom of speech and religion! Free to share my thoughts and inspirations. I also realize that there are consequences to everything that I share with you, so I'll always ask for God's wisdom and revelation while writing and before I publish. ALL questions are welcomed! I can't promise that I'll be able to give you the answer you want, but I'll answer honestly and with scriptures from the Bible. I use both the KJV and the HCSB as my resources.
