...Jesus, The Mediator of The New Covenant, and to the Blood of Springling that speaks better than that of Abel. ~Hebrews 12:24bGod told Cain that Abel's blood cried out to Him from the ground. (Genesis 4:1-16) What were the cries of Abel's life-force? Vengence?
Think of Cain for a moment. He had never ever experienced blood before. When he struck down his brother and Abel's blood spilled from his body, I can imagine how the red stuff must have shocked him and stiffened him momentarily. But, with no police, no laws in place, Cain didn't think this act would bear consequences. Until God Almighty tells Cain that Abel's blood cried out to Him. Phew...I can imagine how fearful Cain must have been, not understanding what we know about blood and DNA today. Due to our revelations of DNA, we know that blood does "speak".
We know there is a life-force in blood. We know DNA speaks.
So, if Jesus' Blood is Eternal, it still has Life and It still speaks to anything we declare that Blood over. There is an authority in His pure, holy, life-giving Blood. An authority which annunciates to whatever we are in need of. It bears witness to the Goodness, Faithfulness, and Love of our God.
Oh, yes, Jesus Christ's Blood is still crying out loud. Do we hear it? Do we allow His Blood to speak into our adverse circumstances? Into our minds as the enemy of our souls invades our thoughts? Do we appropriate His Blood - His authoritative, Life-giving Blood - over ourselves, our loved ones, and our circumstances?
Birth is a bloody mess. Dying can be a bloody mess. His "mess" is our solution, our benefit. Thank You, LORD, for your Blood that still speaks over my life.
Because of Him and Unto Him,
