As the lightning flashed and thunder crashed, Noah was sealed inside. God provided a way of escape from the watery grave outside.
Years later, the children of Israel hunkered in their houses on the first Passover night. The blood of a spotless lamb splashed over their doors turned away the judgment of the death angel as he passed through Egypt to kill the firstborn sons. He did not discriminate as he took the Pharaoh’s and the pauper’s sons. When he saw the blood, the Israelites’ sons were saved.
At Calvary, Jesus became the Ark of our Salvation. He hung between us and judgment. Sin, death, and hell had laid claim to us. Addiction and bondage tightened chains around us. But by His stripes, Jesus paid for our healing. His crown of thorns bought our royalty. The Cross set us free.
Now, no weapon formed against us will prosper. When fear lurks, when the past rises up to haunt, when old sins rattle their chains, the blood of Jesus stands against them. When they see that we are safe within the Ark, they must pass by. We are under the Blood – cleansed and set free.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. No weapon formed against you will prosper. Thank God that you are a Blood-bought child of the King!
