Day 180

As we continue to examine the blood of Jesus as the source of Divine healing, we must remember that the blood must be both shed and applied. As we look to the first Passover, we get insight to our responsibilities in releasing this Divine power to heal. The third point is that the blood must be applied openly. Exodus 12:23 tells us: "For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you." The blood had to be applied on the top and two sides of the door on the outside. It would not work if they merely put the blood on the inside of the door. A public confession of the blood was required for deliverance.

Too often we want to be "closet" believers in Divine healing. We dare not to be too bold because what if... God doesn't heal. There are many reasons that God doesn't heal but that does not take alter that it is His will to heal through the stripes of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:24 is our theme verse for this section: "Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed." We should take this verse for the simple truth that it states; by the stripes or wounds of Jesus, we were healed. Again, notice the past tense; "ye were healed." If you were healed then you are healed.

Don't be afraid to stand for Biblical truth. Yes; you will be persecuted. You may get kicked out of your church. People may laugh at you and call you foolish. However, if you will stand with the blood, He will never leave you or forsake you. Today, thank Him for His shed blood for you. If He has saved you, it was through His shed blood and if He has healed you. it was through His shed blood. Thank God for the blood of Jesus Christ!
