Are You Washed in the Blood?

Revelation 1:5

 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power? We have to go to Jesus for cleansing from our sin, and nowhere else. He told us that, saying, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” The Apostle Paul taught us, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Friends, there is no other way to be washed of our sins besides the Lord Jesus Christ….none. Sin you say? What sin? What am I guilty of? Well, “all have sinned” and come short of the glory of God“, and “there is none righteous, no not one.” In the eyes of a perfect and Holy God, we are all unclean and in need of cleansing, and Jesus is the ONLY way.

Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour? To be cleansed, we have to trust only, only, only in the completed work of Jesus Christ, “ For by grace are ye saved through faith;” We cannot work for, nor contribute to our own salvation, because “all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags;” in the eyes of a perfect and holy God. Friends if we are working and trusting in anything besides His grace, we remain doomed.

Are you walking daily by the Savior’s side?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Do you rest each moment in the Crucified?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Are you walking daily by the Savior’s side? Once we are clean, then we can work. In fact, to work for him is why we were saved, and what God foreordained us to in eternity past. “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” Do you rest each moment in the Crucified? When we do that work, we are promised peace and rest, too! We can cease our fruitless labor, as Jesus told us, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” We may work but the work is easy when our Lord is with us, for his “yoke is easy, and” his “burden is light.

When the Bridegroom cometh will your robes be white?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb?

When the Bridegroom cometh will your robes be white? Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright? One way or another we will all meet Jesus. We may meet him upon His return, or we may meet Him upon our own death. At some point, we will all meet Him because “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” We will meet Him as either savior or judge, for “every knee should bow” and “every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.” Friends, He is Lord of your life no matter what you have done with Him.

Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb;
There’s a fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
O be washed in the blood of the Lamb!

That is an invitation, my friends. Are you still stained by the weight and guilt of sin? Do you understand that you are and that you exist separated from a  just and Holy God? Lay aside those garments, agree with God regarding your sin, and ask him to save you.

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved

Romans 10:13  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved
