“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).
One family invited me to come to their residence for prayer. When I was there some noise was heard at regular intervals of two to three minutes. It was a huge problem to the family and this was bringing sickness and other troubles to the family often. Even during my short stay there I was able to hear that sound.
One servant of God gave the following explanation. In our country there is a subject called ‘Satan safeguarded Treasure’. Some rich persons who believe in seven lives used to put in all their precious things in a pot and place in a deep pit. Then they will bring a young boy to the pit and provide him good food and sweets. Then they will ask the boy to promise that he will guard the treasure safely until the rich person returns to enjoy the treasure in his next birth.
The moment the boy promises, he will be cut by a sharp weapon and will be killed. The rich person will put the body with blood over the treasure in the pit and close the pit too. The blood which is thus buried after so much of violence will be making the noise as heard in the residence of the family discussed above. When Cain found that his offertory was not accepted he was irritated and he rose against Abel and killed him. Yes, the blood can talk too. The blood of Abel cried out to God from the ground and complained. Hearing the cry, God descended to earth. He told Cain “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground” (Genesis 4:10).
But Christ was kind, loving and merciful and the blood He shed on the Cross pleads for us. It continually speaks to God, for Him to do good things to us always. It always says to God Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” If the blood of Jesus had not pleaded to God for you, you might have been immersed in sadness long back. Was it not the blood of Jesus which saved you when shame and sorrows rose against you one after the other? Just because the blood of Jesus has pleaded to God to allow you to live this year too, you are alive on earth now.
“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication (Zechariah 12:10)
