The Impenetrable Blood Shield

Blood drop

“So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived” (Num. 21:9, NKJV).

“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:14-15, NKJV).

This morning I believe the Lord would have me share with you another excerpt from my journal. It follows in my usual style, which is in prayer format to God. This was revelation that He was downloading to me about the staggering power of Jesus’ blood covering over our lives:

“You told me that Your blood is not just a by-instance solution to fixing the problem of sins committed, but an actual shield around us, constantly covering us so that sin and the effects of sin may not penetrate our spirit. Your blood is constantly present with me, a permanent solution to my imperfection, instantly cleansing me as soon as I lift my eyes to You, my crucified and risen Lord.

“I may only approach You through Your blood. So as soon as I draw near to You, Your blood immediately works for me. Which is shown here: ‘Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus… let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience…’ (Heb. 10:19-22, NKJV).

  1. “You are so eager to cleanse us, in our conscience. The very instant we run into Your arms, Your blood is the agent for this truth: ‘…he who was born of God protects him, and the evil one does not touch him’ (1 John 5:18, ESV).

“Your blood avails for me in every moment, and this is why the enemy cannot harm me. He has no access. Your blood has cut him off. Reminds me of the endometrium lining of the womb, surrounding the growing life within and imparting life to It.

“So, Your blood is not this last-ditch intervention we have to crawl and beg for as the prodigal son mistakenly thought; rather, it’s an eternally, abundantly flowing fountain of life ever pouring into us, constantly nurturing us with cleansing, blessing, strength, and life.

“Repentance means turning our back on sin, turning away from our failure, and turning toward You, the fountain of forgiveness, cleansing, and life. They looked on the bronze serpent and were healed. We look up to You, lifted up, to the cross, and in that instant, we are cleansed, purified of all unrighteousness.”

Do you need cleansing today? Don’t hesitate — plunge yourself beneath the crimson flow! Look up to Him and receive His forgiveness instantaneously! Right now, He will wash all your sins away!


Why do you think Jesus chose to use such a startling expression as, “Drink My blood” in teaching us how to enter into His fullness?

  1. This is very good. I think the question of why Jesus shocked with the “drink My blood” statement is a deep pool. Indeed, the Godhead’s deepest sea. The Israelites were instructed in the law to eat nothing with the blood in it. This statement of Jesus’ sort of made their heads explode. I believe the laws about avoiding blood were probably to make it clear that there was no substitute for His blood shed for us, for one thing. Futher, we have to take it in and make it part of our being.

    1. That’s striking to me that you should mention how they were forbidden from eating blood, and how that connects to the Lord’s Supper. Because I just went through the books of the Law again very recently and I was contemplating that very thing. I was also chewing on how that was one of the stipulations included in the Acts 15 council. Thank you so much for sharing your insightful thoughts on the matter, Jon!

  2. dear sister Jennifer, I read your comments most every day, and love your simple words to express His wonderful love, but today with this so important theme, His Blood, I have some questions, as according to the Scriptures Jesus blood was the price that He paid for our redemption, it is Holy as He is Holy, but it had a purpouse to provide salvation to the whole human kind, but only active to those who accept He sacrifice for themselves…

    1. Yes, I wholeheartedly agree with that, my brother! Since my blog is a devotional, the audience that I.have in mind when I write my posts are born again believers in Jesus Christ. So, they would definitely fit into the category of those who have accepted His sacrifice, like you! 🙂 Rich blessings today, I am so glad you shared your thoughts and question. Please let me know if you have any others.


    1. My heart rejoices to know you were blessed by it! Thank you so much for taking a moment to share that, it means a lot to me. And I smiled because I was just thinking about Kim Walker’s song today with that exact lyric, “Oh how He loves us!” I added it to a playlist about the love of God. Truly there are no words for how rich we are, loved by Him!
