In the past few months there have been days when you have felt a shadow and oppression come around you. Sometimes it is has been too close for comfort and you knew it should not be so close.
Jesus reminds you today of the power of His shed blood. His blood puts a line of protection around you. His blood line surrounds you and guards you. His blood ‘speaks a better word’ that any other words or oppression that would seek to influence you.
So today Jesus is making a space around you that He rules and reigns in. His blood gives you the authority to partner with this spacious place that He is setting around you, the authority to enjoy it and the authority to declare a pushing back of any oppression that sneaks around.
But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel
