My love for you is so strong that I sent My Son to shed His precious blood to reconcile you to Me. I have filled you with that blood and now call you mine. You can only love Me because I first loved you.


There are 14 generations from Abraham to David. From David to the captivity in Babylon, there are 14 generations. We also count 14 generations from the captivity in Babylon to Christ showing up as a six-pound Jew in a manger. Three sets of 14 generations give us the bloodline of King Jesus. 

The Bible stamps the number fourteen on this because numbers mean things in the Word of God and in the Kingdom. Fourteen is where God keeps His promises. The number 14 stands for bloodlines and generational promises. It’s a big-time Kingdom number where God says, “See, I did this by blood.” Generational promises and bloodlines are so interwoven.

Exodus 12:6 says, “it was on the 14th day of the month” when God kept His 400-year promise to bring Israel out of Egypt. It was the first Passover by the blood of the lamb. God kept his promise of freedom by the shedding of blood. 

From the beginning, blood has been regarded by God as a precious thing. Sadly, from our Western lens and the culture we grew up in, that doesn’t easily compute. 

I now understand that Jesus is a King, and I was brought into the Kingdom. His blood was applied to me as if His blood is my blood. The only way I can have access to His blood is by faith. I began to unpack that and it began to change my view. Because of this, I am called a king and a priest by His blood. 

When that happens supernaturally, it’s a whole different world. You and I need to understand what Jesus Christ has given to us by His blood. Because of His blood, we are forgiven, we are heirs, and we are family. Yes, we are God’s own children.

“All glory to him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by shedding his blood for us.” – Revelation 1:5
