The blood was to be a token, a sign or mark, that those in the house belonged to Jehovah God and were safe from the destroyer. If you are familiar with eschatology at all, you have probably heard of the mark of the beast. Many theories abound as to what it may be, but no one knows for sure. However, from a Scriptural viewpoint we can confidently affirm that whatever the mark of the beast winds up being, it will only be a pale imitation of the mark of God.
When Jesus came to be baptized, John looked up at Him and proclaimed, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” Years later, the Apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthian church, “For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.” An understanding of the blood of Jesus Christ requires an examination of the Passover, and what better place to start than where it all began.
We were ransomed by the precious blood of Jesus Christ. His blood ate away like acid the cords that bound us. The ropes of sin could not longer tie us down to death, division, and a destroyed destiny.
Intercession is importunate. It is to continually beset somebody with repeated and incessant requests, like the woman who pleaded with the unjust judge, “Avenge me of my adversary.”
