The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power
Have a blessed Tuesday! This morning I will begin this devotion with a song written and sang by Andrae Crouch.
The blood will never lose its power.
The blood that Jesus sheds for me way back on Calvary. The blood that gives me strength from day to day. It will never lose its power.
It reaches to the highest mountain and it flows to the lowest valley. The blood that gives me strength from day to day it will never lose its power. (Andrae Crouch)
Let us examine why the blood of Jesus will never lose its power.
The power of the blood is limitless and everlasting.
This blood will reach the highest mountain. How high is this mountain?
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised In the city of our God, In His holy mountain.
Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
God is in her palaces; He is known as her refuge. (Psalms 48:1-3)
On the holy mountain of God is the place where the temple of God in heaven sits.
In this temple, the Lord Jesus Christ took His own blood to present before God in the Holy place to make restitution for our sins.
But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation.
Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. (Hebrews 9:11-12)
Hallelujah! What a Saviour!
Wait, there is more!
How low is the lowest valley that the blood of Jesus reaches?
Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. (Psalms 139:7-8)
(Now this, “He ascended”—what does it mean but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth?
He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.) (Ephesians 4:9-10)
There is no valley lower than hell, and this is where Christ descended to make proclamation to the imprisoned souls who were disobedient long ago in the days of Noah (1 Peter 3: 18-20).
What did Christ proclaim?
No one knows for certain.
But, because the mercy of God is everlasting, I believe with all my heart that Christ proclaimed that His blood made restitution for their sins and gave them a chance to repent.
Yes, repentance in the depths of hell!
This, my friend, is how powerful is the blood of Jesus.
It will never lose its power.
Thank You, Lord.
