“And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.”
Exodus 12:11

OF all substances blood is the most mysterious, and in some senses the most sacred. Scripture teacheth us,-and after all there is very much philosophy in Scripture,-that “the blood is the life thereof,”-that the life lieth in the blood. Blood, therefore, is the mysterious link between matter and spirit. How it is that the soul should in any degree have an alliance with matter through blood, we cannot understand; but certainly it is that this is the mysterious link which unites these apparently dissimilar things together, so that the soul can inhabit the body, and the life can rest in the blood. God has attached awful sacredness to the shedding of blood. Under the Jewish dispensation, even the blood of animals was considered as sacred. Blood might never be eaten by the Jews; it was too sacred a thing to become the food of man. The Jew was scarcely allowed to kill his own food: certainly he must not kill it except he poured out the blood as a sacred offering to Almighty God. Blood was accepted by God as the symbol of the atonement. “Without shedding of blood there is no remission of sin, because, I take it, blood hath such an affinity with life, that inasmuch as God would accept nought but blood, be signified that there must be a life offered to him, and that his great and glorious Son must surrender his life as a sacrifice for his sheep.

In the Old Testament God took great care to teach His people that the cleansing of the soul could only be had through the blood. This was the meaning of every smoking altar and the rivers of blood which flowed from the Jewish altars. On the dark night when Israel left Egypt, blood played a big part in their deliverance.

Imagine yourself there that night. The tenth plague was more frightening than all the others: Death was loosed on the streets. Wait! The voice of God’s Mercy spoke: “There is an exception: all who take refuge under the blood will be spared!”

Be careful what you sow, for a day of reaping will come! The Egyptians had enslaved the Israelites for 300 years. The terrible brutality and infanticide they had perpetrated had incensed the Holy God.

So God sent nine plagues on them – the Nile was turned to blood, then came frogs, the lice, the flies, their cattle died of disease; then came boils, hail, locusts, and then darkness.

But Pharaoh refused to free the Israelites from their cruel bondage, so God pronounced a final judgment on them – the death of the firstborn.

The tenth plague was more frightening than all the others: Death was being loosed into the streets; no firstborn in the land of Egypt would survive the night; every house would have a dead person in it! No bolted door or barred window could keep that Death out. All trembled, for every family would lose someone tonight!

HOW IMPORTANCE WAS THE BLOOD THAT NIGHT? It was the Most Important thing in the world!

It became the distinguishing Mark. You could tell an Israelite from an Egyptian – NOT by clothing or by language, but by the Blood on the doorway.

There were no “secret believers” that day! What you believed was emblazoned in red on the front of your house.

In the twelfth chapter of the book of Exodus, we have a full description of the slaying of the Passover Lamb and the sprinkling of the blood. There are several points about the lamb and the blood which are striking and typical.

The lamb was to be without blemish. The Christ of Christianity was without spot or blemish. This was true of His human body. Christ could have lived on earth ten thousand years and have been as fresh and pure as the June rose. “Thou hast the dew of thy youth.

Just as the Passover Lamb Christ died to deliver us from the sinful manner of life received from our fathers. From hell; yes, that is clear. “The Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all;”
(Isa.53:6) “He bore our sins in his body on the tree.”
(1 Peter 2:24)

The Basis Of Our Salvation, Security And Protection Is In The Blood Of Our Lord Jesus Christ–For It Is The Basis Of Our reconciliation, Redemption, Justification and Peace with God despite our sins and shortcomings.

“For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the first born in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the Lord.
And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the Lord throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever”.
Exodus 12:12-13

There is a remarkable passage in I Cor. 1:30, “Of Him are ye in Christ Jesus who of God is made unto us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.”
“Ye are complete in Him.” Col. 2:10. Our sanctification like every other blessing is in Him. It is not character with a little culture, slowly built up in us and then stereotyped and crystallized for life. “Christ is made unto us Sanctification.” He does not give us a few virtues to cultivate and develop unto Holiness. He gives us His heart, His mind, His holiness, His indwelling life to keep us pure and holy. Christ is made unto us redemption. The word redemption has a larger meaning than our mind can conceive. It not only means deliverance from sin in its twofold nature; but redemption in Christ takes in our body. It means the Lord for the body. The resurrection life begins to reach us even here. We read, “But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.”

“For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for your soul.”
Leviticus 17:11

An emphatic testimony that redemption is through our Lord’s death — not through his life, or example, or holiness, or mediation, but, as Scripture invariably says with unwavering consistency, by “his blood”. God himself bore the penalty of human guilt that he might righteously extend his mercy to the guilty. Nor can we imagine any method which so glorifies his grace and reveals himself. Think of the worth of our Lord’s offering. The universe were as nothing compared to the Son of God. What unfathomable meaning is in the words, “the precious blood of Christ”! Now, this stupendous price was paid for nothing less that we might be holy.”

This is also the secret of divine healing. It is the life of Christ in our mortal body. Divine healing is not just a mere touch of power upon our body which restores and then leaves it to its own resources of natural strength. It is nothing less than a measure of the resurrected life, quickening, strengthening, inspiring the human frame with Divine life and vigor.

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their own lives unto death.”
Revelation 12:10-11

Christ is not only everything in redemption, but He is everything in Heaven. The attraction in Heaven is not golden streets and walls of jasper but “The Lamb.” You will doubtless remember John the Beloved when he started to describe the City of God. He began with the walls and the gates, then coming inside he said that the streets were paved with gold; when suddenly lifting up his eyes, he said, “I saw a Lamb.” Have you noticed he never said any more about golden streets? The Lamb had absorbed all of his attention. For the moment he lost sight of everything else. So shall it be with us when we enter the gates into the City. The one great theme song will be unto Him who loved us and washed us in His own blood. To Him be glory throughout all ages world without end. Amen.

“The blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.”

  • Hebrews 12:24

Blood hath a voice to pierce the skies,
‘Revenge!’ the blood of Abel cries;
But the rich blood of Jesus slain,
Speaks peace as loud from every vein.”

You will note too that Abel’s blood cried for revenge upon one man only-upon Cain; it required the death of but one man to satisfy for it, namely. the death of the murderer. “Blood for blood!” The murderer must die the death. But what saith Christ’s blood in heaven? Does it speak for only one? Ah! no, beloved; “the free gift hath come upon many.” Christ’s blood cries mercy! mercy! mercy! not on one, but upon a multitude whom no man can number-ten thousand times ten thousand.

“There are three that bear witness on earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood;” and behold the blood’s witness is-“The blood of Jesus Christ, his Son, cleanseth us from all sin.” Come, poor sinner, cast thyself simply on that truth. Away with your good works and all your trustings! Lie simply flat on that sweet word of Christ. Trust his blood; and if thou canst put thy trust alone in Jesus, in his sprinkled blood, it shall speak in thy conscience better things than that of Abel.

Trust him with your soul; trust him with your sins; trust him with the future; trust him with the past; trust him with everything. Say,

“A guilty, weak, and worthless worm,
On Christ’s kind arms I fall
Be thou my strength and righteousness,
My Jesus and my all.”

May the Lord now give you his blessing; for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.
