THE MERCY SEAT, No. 6. - HOW MUCH MORE SHALL THE BLOOD OF JESUS PREVAIL continued.
With the precious blood of Jesus sprinkled upon Heaven’s mercy seat, there is no limit to what our prayers can accomplish.
Even under the Old Covenant, which was sealed with the blood of bulls and goats there was still great mercy shown to God’s covenanted people as they humbled themselves, prayed, and turned from their wicked ways (1 Chronicles 7:14).
When they called upon God, pleading His divine mercy to flow from His mercy seat which was the seat of His throne in the earthly tabernacle and temple, God answered their prayers. Why? Because of the blood of bulls and goats abundantly sprinkled upon the mercy seat.
But now, because of the blood of Jesus Christ, the sinless, spotless, Lamb of God, whose blood is on Heaven’s mercy seat, HOW MUCH MORE greater and abundantly above all that we could ask or even think shall our payers be answered.
Men, we must teach our families this great truth. I believe with all my heart that there is absolutely no limit to the leverage we have obtained in and through the precious blood of Jesus. Through His blood we can receive from God all that we could possibly imagine.
Psalm 81:10 says: “I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.” This means that God calls His people to ask Him for BIG requests. In this psalm God reminds His people of His great miracles when He delivered them out of the bondage of Egypt.
To see His mighty power again, all they had to do now was to repent, walk in His ways, and stop worshipping false gods.
Verse 11 states: “But my people would not hearken to my voice.”
Verse 14 says: “I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.”
Verse 16 says: "He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat; and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.”
This was all under the Old Covenant, sealed with the blood of bulls and goats.
HOW MUCH MORE shall the sinless, spotless blood of Jesus Christ prevail for us?
How wide do we open our mouths?
Teach your family the power of Jesus’ blood to receive answers beyond their wildest dreams.
