Afraid of the Blood of Jesus?
Before I talk about this daunting question, allow me to give thanks and praise to our Lord Jesus.
“Thank you Lord Jesus for revealing to me of your kind love and teaching when you appeared in front of me during the second song by Bob Fitts. You appeared in front of me in your robe dripping with blood and thank you for speaking to me. I love you and thank you for all your grace given to me.”
I would like to thank all brothers and sisters for being very open in their opinion. Having oneself opened up will leads to more blessing from our Father Jesus in Heaven.
I wasn’t afraid of seeing our Lord in his blood soaked robe, I was puzzled as to why he appeared in front of me in this way. So Lord Jesus spoke to me:
“Why puzzled my son? Even to the last few days, I will still be bleeding blood for people because of their sins.”
I sincerely thanks Lord Jesus for having prepared me to see his Vision without fear. So I really find it strange that people I spoke to and testified to about this Vision was filled with fear as if they cannot see vision of Lord Jesus robe dripping with blood. So their confession, they only know how to use the Calvary and that Lord Jesus had died for our sin and he had resurrected on the 3rd day. I think many would even go to the extend of not talking about the precious blood of Lord Jesus. Perhaps, it is HIS for me to share this testimony. Lord Jesus had prepared me to fully understand and get accustomed and used to seeing and using HIS blood for protection and to use it for spiritual Warfare against the enemy.
First, acknowledgment of the Important of telling people about the Blood of Lord Jesus.
Last year our Lord spoke to me that I must transcribe the speech by Richard Roberts, in one part of his sermon he talk about certain people who refused to talk about the blood of Lord Jesus and how he convincingly make known to us that without the shedding of the blood Lord Jesus, all of us wouldn’t be here today in this church. We thank God for the shedding of the Blood of Lord Jesus Christ so that we can be saved. Here is his sermon about the blood of Lord Jesus:-
Rev Richard Roberts, 2nd April 2006 in CHC.
“There are many people around the world today who would said that they don’t need Old testament anymore. That is a lie. No one has cut the old testament out of the Bible. Well, there are people who say that new testament came to replace the old testament and that is not true either. New testament as a matter of fact came to fulfill the old testament. Are you all getting into the spirit this morning? Because there are grievous wolf who will come and they are around now. They are around now in this part of the world and also on my part of the world. They would say grievous thing that will discourage the elate and persuaded that what they believe is not true because they are trying to take the blood of Jesus away. You know as I pray today, I talked about the blood of Jesus. There are many denominations that are taking out the mention of the blood of Jesus because they don’t want the people to be offended. But I’ve got news for you, without the shedding of blood of Jesus, there will be no redemption. Without the shed blood of Jesus, you will not be Christian. Thank God for the shed blood of Jesus. Don’t allow any false prophet speak into your life. Don’t walk away from them. Run away from them. We as a Christian must stand up for the Bible.” You can read this whole transcription by Click this link.
My Wife dreamed about walking along the sea side seeing dirty blood washed to shore one morning.
“My spouse (not saved yet) once said she dreamed of being at the seaside, she said that the seawater washed ashore was foaming with dirty blood, and she was very frightened.” I do not understand the meaning either but I did asked in prayer as request to know the meaning of it.
Being in Spirit, my Sister Laura wrote a review article. You can read this whole article by Click here “Heaven is so Real” by review on Choo Thomas. So I borrowed the book and read, and what was so amazing is that it helped me to understand the meaning of my wife’s dream.

When I was young, probably about 6 to 7 years old, we have this Chinese belief (maybe pass down from older generation), that if we bit our finger and throw our blood against the Ghost and it will frighten them away. Now I know that this was a myth but I was just wondering, how do they get this idea?
Old Chinese soap opera used blood writing as expression of deep love.
During my youth where all the show was in black and white. I remembered those Chinese soap opera (mostly Hokkien at that time). Always you would see those weeping woman going to lost her love one or having to depart from her love one, she would tear part of her inner garment (white) to use for writing of expression of love. And guess what she used for writing those “love letter”? She would bit her finger and use the bleeding blood to write those touchy words for her lover to see. Wow, what an expression of love with blood! Come to think of it, it is kind of funny, many Chinese show during that have this part of drama.
We would like to thank Pastor Kong for his sermon that connects us back to Ancient China where we had identified that we are praying to the same God. With this understanding, it helps me to further understand and confirm the connection with many Chinese believes.
The blood marking saved the first born of Israel.
Exodus 12:11 “On that night I will pass through the land of Egypt and strike down every firstborn son and firstborn male animal in the land of Egypt. I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt, for I am the Lord! But the blood on your doorposts will serve as a sign, marking the houses where you are staying. When I see the blood, I will pass over you. This plague of death will not touch you when I strike the land of Egypt.”
The blood marking on doorposts saved the firstborn son of Israel. So perhaps, those who disobeyed God, those who are afraid of blood or found painting blood on the doorposts disgusting could not save their first born. In present day, the only disgusting blood that maybe painted on someone’s door is the work of bad people such as loan shark! But you need the precious blood of Lord Jesus to cover your household to protect you from all harms.
The Apostles Creed.
When we took bread in remembrance of Lord Jesus, it represents the body of Christ broken up for us, that is in remembrance of his body broken for us on the Calvary.
When we took the wine, Lord Jesus said, this is his blood in remembrance of him, his blood cleanse us of our sins.
So friends, we had been doing this again and again every month to remind of Lord Jesus’s dying on the Calvary for us and his blood is being used to continuously cleanse us of our sins. So how is it that we have believers being afraid of seeing Lord Jesus having his robe dripping with blood? Only understanding the Calvary is NOT GOOD ENOUGH! We need the blood of Lord Jesus running in us, carrying his DNA. (In another words, meaning we need the living words of God operate in our life). We need to be humble before God. Just like Jacob, he wrestled with God, refusing to let him go untill God touched the socket of his thigh and he limped for the rest of his life, to remind him that he needed God badly.
Genesis 32:25 “touched the socket of his thigh; so the socket of Jacob’s thigh was dislocated while he wrestled with him.”
For us, we are fortunate, we only need to wrestle for the Blood of Lord Jesus to help us cleanse of our sins continuously. Let it be that we be touched and engraved in our heart that we need Lord Jesus’ blood to cleanse us all the time. We don’t have to limped like Jacob to remind us that we needed God all the time but with help of our Holy Spirit who engraved in our heart and constantly gives us convictions that we can ask to be repentance of our sins and we will be continuously be cleansed by the Blood of Lord Jesus so that we can be emerged as a clean bride in the pure white robe that is white as snow, a proper outfit, for his second coming, the BRIDEGROOM.
I am really blessed and fortunate to be able see the vision of our Lord Jesus standing in front of me with his robe dripping with blood. And I thanked Abba father Lord Jesus for patiently speaking and explain to me so that I can understand the passage in Book of Revelation completely.
Rev 19:13-16 “He wore a robe dipped in blood, and his title was the Word of God. The armies of heaven, dressed in the finest of pure white linen, followed him on white horses. From his mouth came a sharp sword to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod. He will release the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty, like juice flowing from a winepress. On his robe at his thigh was written this title: King of all kings and Lord of all lords.” I wrote this Bible message on 10th of July 2009 “Horses with No Name. I do not quite understand why would our Lord of all Lords purposely wore a robe dipped in blood. Now I understand, it is actually the continuous dripping of HIS precious blood that caused the robe to be dipped in his pool of blood. And I fully understood our Lord Jesus message “Even to the last few days, I will still be bleeding blood for people because of their sins.”
So my friends, maybe the next time, if it is HIS will, Lord Jesus may stand in front of you with his robe dripping with blood. Just wonder what your reaction is going to be, would you be very fearful? Would you be like the “Boat people” who said they saw “Ghost”? But only one person, Simon Peter rubbed his eyes 3 times and saw the Vision of Lord Jesus and he gotten out of “the Boat”, away from those “Boat People”, and walk on faith with Lord Jesus!
As a matter of fact, every first week of the month, we recite the Apostle Creed, and we partake the Holy Communion.
Lord Jesus said :-
Matt 26:27 “And he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it. He gave it to them and said, “Each of you drink from it, for this is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice to forgive the sins of many. Mark my words ‘I will not drink wine again until the day I drink it new with you in my Father’s Kingdom.”
Pastor Tan had spoken about the meaning of Holy Communion. Is this being done just to be in remembrance of our Lord Jesus or to remind us that HIS body is broken for us and that we should be like Lord Jesus, our body should be broken for other people too. Now, I would like to add one more if you’ll permit. Lord Jesus’s blood is being used to wash away our sins, covered us for protection and also to use it to defeat the enemy of God in any spiritual war fare. Although obviously our own blood is not qualified to wash away sin but we can bleed blood for one another. (Meaning putting in time, energy and sacrifices to help one another.)
Want to drink new wine with Lord Jesus in Father’s Kingdom? You must not be fearful of Lord Jesus’ blood but treasure it and wrestle for it so that you will be cleaned completely. The Sheep will be able to recognize his own shepherd’s voice and calling.
“A good sherpherd brings out his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.” John 10:4-5
The blood of Lord Jesus can be used for many Christian life application:-
1. Salvation. Without blood of Lord Jesus,we would not be saved.
2. For protection. Pray to Lord Jesus for his blood to cover us for protection,for health, for safety, etc. His blood to cover over your finances to protect it from the devourer of finances.
3. As a weapon to defeat the enemy in spiritual warfare. Mary K. Baxter wrote in her book “Divine Revelation of Spiritual Warfare.”
Taken from Book, “A Divine revelation of Spiritual Warfare.” by Mary K. Baxter
THE POWER OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS.
“Boldness to enter the Holiest of the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which he consecrated for us through …His flesh.” Hebrews 10:19-20
When we plead for the blood of Jesus to cover us or other people, demon tremble at the name of Jesus and they fleed at the sight of the blood of the Lamb.
