But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. Hebrews 12:22-24.
Blood is essential in the covenant, its one of the forces at work in Zion. It is a blood covenant! A sacrifice that is ever present before God. His blood gives life, health, vitality, newness.goodness & Greatnes. The blood of Jesus is the purest, hence the standard in heaven. He is the first and last, alpha & omega, beginning & end of sacrifices. The blood of Jesus gives entrance to Zion, purges & purifies all. Jesus is the mediator or go-between God and man, heaven and earth. The blood is the living witness of the covenant sacrifice; alive & active. The blood speaks as it is sprinkled or invoked. Whenever the blood is sprinkled, it’s effect is seen in all the earth. The blood of Jesus translates ordinary people to heavenly citizens. Everyone born in Zion is a partaker of the blood covenant in Christ. The process of translation begins at redemption and renewed in Zion.
“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us:for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” Galatians 3:13-14.
The blood covenant is the basis of redemption; the blood is domiciled in Zion. Redemption is our ticket to the blessing of Abraham through Christ. This is very important to many of us gentiles, with no natural ties to Abraham. The blood of Jesus rescues from the curse of sin & death to the blessing. The blood is now a weapon in our hand to sprinkle and speak. Everything procured by the blood of Jesus is ours to enjoy. Redemption is our elevation from terrestrial to celestial living. We are now citizens and partakers in Zion city of our God. The blood is sprinkled and speaks for us too; I am born there. The earth responds, the devil is overcome by the word and the blood.
No longer a victim, now a victor in Christ Jesus. Sprinkle and speak!
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelation 12:11.
