TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I Am a God who cannot go back on His word. My word says the wages of sin is death. I sent My Son to pay that wage for you, so you won’t have to. Accept His payment. Accept My love.
ALL ABOUT THE BLOOD
If you bust out a Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance and look up Genesis 4, then go to the word “blood,” it’s actually a plural word. The King James translators didn’t want to make it plural because that doesn’t make sense in the English language, but it should have been plural.
This is what it should say in Genesis 4:10, “The voice of your brother’s bloods cries out to Me from the ground.” That means Cain didn’t just kill his brother Abel, he killed Abel’s children and their children. He murdered all of Abel’s generations along with their promise – all the way to Jesus the Messiah. The original bloodline of Jesus was going to come through Abel.
Cain committed a great act of abortion second only to his daddy, Adam. When Adam sinned against the Lord in the garden, he killed all of us before we were born. How? We entered into death before we had ever taken a single breath.
When God tells Cain, “The voice of your brother’s bloods cries out to Me,” let’s just note that blood has a voice – a loud voice. It cries out and God can hear it. Just like that, there’s another intriguing word in the book of Hebrews. This is the New Testament. So now, it’s talking about the blood of King Jesus, not the blood of Abel.
“But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels…to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than the blood of Abel.” – Hebrews 12:22, 24
The blood of sprinkling speaks better than the blood of Abel? What?!? It’s easy to just keep on reading, but we need to get this because it’s a really big deal!
Again, blood has a voice. The blood of Abel cries while the blood of Jesus speaks. The blood of Abel cries because it was victimized by the injustice of this world. It demands a price has to be paid.
But get this: the blood of Jesus speaks of how He has conquered death and hell and says the price has been paid in full. Are you listening to the sound of eternal life?
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” – Romans 6:23
