Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I thank You for the blood of Jesus. Through Your shed blood, I have been redeemed from the curse of the law of sin and death. According to Galatians 3:13–14, You became a curse for me and hung on the tree so that I might receive the blessing of Abraham. Thank You, Jesus, for fulfilling Yom Kippur on my behalf. The Word of God declares that the life is in the blood. You exchanged Your life for mine and paid my ransom. I receive the blood sacrifice that You made for me, and I know that through You I am completely clean and justified. I declare that the blood of Jesus Christ neutralizes every curse. I declare that the blood of Jesus Christ is the title deed for my healing, deliverance, and breakthrough. I serve notice to the kingdom of darkness that the blood of Jesus is against it! The enemy can no longer condemn, accuse, or slander my name because my sins are under the blood of Jesus. Thank You, Lord, for Your mighty power working in and through my life. Just as the blood of bulls and goats had power under the old covenant to atone and bring restoration, so Your blood, as the ultimate payment, has the power to completely restore my total self. The blood of Jesus covers me in every area of my life.
Just A Thought...
Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you.
(1 Peter 1:18–20 KJV)
One of the most significant holy days in the Old Testament was Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement. During this sacred time, the High Priest would take a scapegoat and lay his hands on it, symbolically transferring the sins of the entire nation of Israel onto the animal. Then the High Priest would banish the goat into the wilderness, representing the putting away of Israel’s sin before God. After that, a spotless lamb would be sacrificed, representing the atoning (expiating) of Israel’s sin, and thus cleansing the entire nation of their iniquities. To this very day, Yom Kippur is the most holy day in Israel.
However, Yom Kippur was just a type and shadow of something much more powerful. Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ became both the Scapegoat and the sacrificial Lamb, sacrificing Himself of the cross of Calvary for the sins of the entire world (not just the nation of Israel), so that all who believe in Him may be redeemed from the curse of sin, and stand clean, forgiven, and justified before a holy God. What a wonderful display of God’s goodness! The blood of Jesus Christ has cleansed every born-again believer from their sins, and has transformed us into new creations.
When I was growing up, my mother would use bleach to remove heavy stains from clothing. Depending on how soiled the clothing was, there would sometimes still be a remnant of the original stain. In contrast, the blood of Jesus Christ removes any and all stains and leaves no trace of our iniquities, but washes us completely clean. Hallelujah! The blood of Jesus Christ is more powerful than anything you have ever imagined. It was the only ransom worthy of redeeming us. No matter what you are dealing with in your life, you must recognize that the blood of Jesus Christ is more than able to redeem, heal, deliver, and cleanse you. There is power in the blood!
