“For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door and not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to strike you.” Exodus 12:23
In John 10:10 Satan is called the destroyer when Jesus says of him, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” One of the ways that he seeks to bring destruction into our lives is through sickness and disease. Only the blood of Jesus when applied to our life by faith will keep the destroyer away for us.
It is important to understand that the Israelites were not automatically protected just because they were Jewish. They would only be spared the destruction that was coming upon the Egyptians when they by faith applied the blood of the lamb to the door post o their homes. In the same way, we as Christians will not be automatically spared from sickness and disease just because we have made Jesus our Savior. We must continually apply the blood of Jesus to our life by faith.
In this verse God said that when He SEES THE BLOOD that He will not allow the destroyer to come to your house to strike you. When does God see the blood on our life? God sees the blood on you and me every time that we apply the blood to our life. We apply the blood of Jesus to our life every time we plead the blood over our life by confessing what the blood of Jesus has done for us by faith. Always remember, when the blood is applied destruction will be denied!
Confession: I apply the blood of Jesus to my body by faith right now. I confess that I have been purchased by the shed blood of Jesus and therefore sickness has no legal right to touch me! By His stripes I am healed!
