(Exodus 12:13) 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.
On the night of the first Passover, many of the children of Israel were probably anxious. Imagine one Israelite asking another nervously, “did you hear that the angel of the Lord is passing through tonight? Yes, we were told to put the blood of the lamb on the door posts of our home and everything would be all right. By simple obedience, the blood of goats and bulls actually saved the Israelites.
You might be wondering, can the blood really protect me? How much blood do I really have to put on my door post? Will the angel of death get me if I am fearful? My friend, don’t add to God’s conditions. He said when I see the blood, I will pass over you and the plague will not be on you to destroy. He did not say when I see the blood plus your understanding, effort, obedience, faithfulness and refusal to give in to fear, and then I will pass over you. If the blood of goats and bulls could save the Israelites, how much more the blood of the Jesus?
It is the blood of Jesus alone that delivers you. If you think that it is because of your faith, then you will always be wondering, do I have enough faith? No my friend, it is the blood alone that saves. God wants you to know that it is Jesus’ blood alone that saves because every time you think that your deliverance depends partly on God and partly on you, you will not have a settled peace in your heart. But when you know it is the blood alone that saves, you will have an unshakable peace. When God sees the blood, every plague will pass over you.
It was the blood that saved the children of Israel from the destroyer on that Passover night and it is still the blood that saves today. The blood of Jesus alone covers you and your family. No evil plague or disaster will befall you or your family because of the blood in Jesus name, Amen
