Most times we think we can predict God, we think we know Him too well as if He is our biological father. The ways of God are mysterious and we cannot know Him all through.
God does not despise blood. In the Old testament a lot of blood sacrifices were offered to God to cleanse sins, forgive iniquities and turn away His wrath. It simply means the blood speaks, it has a voice and God takes action whenever the blood of a believer or unbeliever is shed.
When Cain killed Abel, the blood of Abel spoke against him and God took action against Cain.
Genesis 4:10 says, “…….. the voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me …..”
When God decided to kill the firstborn of the Egyptians, the children of Israel were told to sprinkle the blood of the lamb on their doorposts. When the angel of death came he passed over (Exodus 12:23). The blood was speaking.
Likewise the blood of Jesus speaks better things than the blood of Abel (Hebrews 12:24). The blood of Abel was speaking of vengeance but the blood of Jesus speaks of mercy.
2 Kings 3: 27 says, ” Then he took his eldest son who would have reigned in his place, and offered him as a burnt offering upon the wall; and there was great indignation against Israel. So they departed from him and returned to their own land”.
When God saw how the King of Moab sacrificed his firstborn son to his god in order to win the battle, God turned against the Israelites. The Moabites were not captured. Why? God saw him as an unbeliever who understood blood sacrifice, to the extent of sacrificing his heir apparent.
God also sacrificed His Son and Heir and His blood was shed for our sins. God saw a connection between Him and the king of Moab irrespective of the fact that what he did was evil. It was blood for blood and God backed out.
That was why Jesus told his disciples in (Luke 22:20) to always drink his blood and eat His flesh which is the Holy Communion. Jesus was teaching them the efficacy of His blood. Which blood is speaking for you?
What I am saying is that the children of this world are becoming wiser than children of the kingdom. They understand and obey kingdom principles and prosper but the believers are less concerned.
What have you sacrificed for God to hear your prayer, lift you up, bless you or heal you. The truth is that everything cannot be achieved by prayer. There are blessings we can only attract by sacrifice. Sacrifice your time, energy, time, money or substance to the things of God or else no sacrifice will speak for you when the battle comes.
Every price has a sacrifice. Don’t forget that.
