I read a news clip tonight about a Syrian boy who escaped being shot in a massacre. How? He soaked his clothes with his brother’s blood while the gunmen shot the rest of his family. So, how can we escape the righteous anger of God toward us? How can we escape the second death which is hell? We must be soaked in the blood of God’s Lamb, that is, I must trust entirely in the shed blood of Christ as a payment for sins, even mine. Soaked! Nothing but the blood! Don’t suppose that church membership, baptism, good deeds or good intentions will merit you anything before God. God’s death angel ‘passed over’ the children of Israel (like a tornado that did not touch down). Why? Exodus 12:13b when I see the blood I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. By sincere faith, sprinkle your soul with the blood of the Lamb of God. . . . This is the essence of the good news, the gospel. Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
