WORD FOCUS: JESUS’ BLOOD SPEAKS BETTER THINGS
TEXT: Hebrews 12:24 “And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel….”
Today, forensic science tells us that blood has a voice. DNA can be extracted from just one small drop of the murderer’s blood and the results used in court as evidence.
So blood in a sense can speak, and when it is the blood of Jesus, it “speaks better things” than that of Abel. Abel’s blood cried out, “Vengeance! Vengeance!” after his brother Cain murdered him. (Genesis 4:8–11) Verily, Jesus’ blood cries out forgiveness for our sins, healing for our bodies, and peace, and soundness for our minds. It cries out protection for our coming-ins and going-outs, good success for the works of our hands, the righteousness of Christ as our acceptance before God, and much more! In the Bible, Jesus’ blood speaking of “better things” is found in the context of the last days when things are being shaken, so that the things which cannot be shaken will remain. (Hebrews 12:27) God wants you to know that you will not be shaken when you put your faith in Jesus’ blood, which speaks better things for you. That is why God wants you to see Jesus’ blood shed for you in every area that causes your heart to tremble and your confidence to be shaken.
For example, if you are afraid of losing your job, speak the blood of Jesus over your job. His blood cries out, “Favor with your boss! “Hence in these days `when you are shaken by fears that terrorism may strike anyone, anywhere, anytime, plead the blood of Jesus which cries out, “Protection and deliverance!” When fear rises in your heart as the doctor gives you his prognosis, plead the blood of Jesus over your body. His blood actually cries out, “Healing and wholeness!” The eternal blood of Jesus, which speaks a better Word, will never lose its power. For those who trust and follow Him. Beloved, see that you do not refuse Him who speaks. (Hebrews 12:25) See that you keep hearing the voice of grace and mercy which speaks salvation, righteousness, protection, deliverance, provision, and healing over your life.
