Proclaiming the Victory

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

What does God expect of us once we are sprinkled with the blood of Jesus? Are we obligated in any way by this sprinkling? Yes, we certainly are! 

If we have been sprinkled with Jesus’s blood, we are first commanded to go in peace and not doubt anymore. When Moses sprinkled blood on the sinning Israelites, they never once doubted that they were pardoned and accepted by God. They trusted in that sprinkling. 

Today, the blood sprinkled on us is not that of bulls, goats, or sheep but of Christ, the Lamb of God. Yet we have more doubt, more fear than those Israelites. 

Martin Luther said it is blasphemy to take back to ourselves all the sins that were laid on Christ, and I agree with him. It is absolute sacrilege to go about in fear, guilt and condemnation. We are not to say, “The Bible says that by faith I am cleansed, justified, and protected from Satan’s power, yet I cannot believe such a glorious thing is possible.” 

Secondly, we are to praise God with a thankful heart, never doubting. We are commanded to thank God for the precious blood of Jesus with high praises. 

• “We also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation” (Romans 5:11, NKJV).

• “Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!” (Psalm 32:11). 

• “Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!” (Psalm 89:15).

• “I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness” (Isaiah 61:10).

Proclaim the victory of Jesus’s blood in your life and begin praising him now for the promise of that great day of redemption to come.
