“By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all” (Hebrews 10:10).
A servant of God had to visit a far away country and had to stay in an inn there. Staying in an unknown destination and being alone brought fear in him but somehow he began to sleep.
In the midnight a terrific demon came to fight with him. It roared that it had come to work against him and to kill him. The servant of God did not know what to do. He simply started to shout “Blood, Blood, and Victory through Blood”. But the demon was least bothered and laughed saying “I am very fond of the blood of the cattle. Why should I be afraid of a blood?”
Only then the servant of God realised that the ordinary blood will never chase out the enemy. He also realised that the blood of Jesus alone is the powerful tool for the purpose. Then he commanded the demon “I am pouring the blood of Jesus on you”.
At once the demon started to shiver. Even while he was looking at it, it became smaller and smaller and al last ceased from existence. At this juncture the pastor woke up and he started to raise his heart towards Calvary kneeling down. He realised that the blood of Jesus alone is powerful and only with His blood combining with his Name could we oppose and win over the enemy.
“For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins. And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified” (Hebrews 10:4, 11-14).
The blood of Jesus is like a spring which forgives the sinners. For a believer the blood of Jesus is the one which cleanses. For the servants of God it is the biggest weapon to win over satan.
All the houses in which the blood of the Passover lamb is sprayed remained safe. If you remain within the fort of His blood no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling.
To meditate: “Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit” (Psalms 32:1, 2).
