So, who loves to clean?! I am wondering if I were standing in front of a room full of people if I would hear cheers or silence asking that question lol.
Bleach is one of my favorites to clean with. Why you ask…well there are days when I am moving at a hundred miles per hour and I have to be able to clean quickly and bleach is my go to…on the right surface and the right clothing of course. This may seem weird, but I have used my favorite bleach cleaning product and sprayed at a stain on my counter or floor and literally stood there and watched the stain dissolve right in front of my eyes within seconds. I am star struck every time and fascinated by what bleach can do to a stain. I have sprayed bleach on stains and spills at other times and walked away to do something else and have come back and the stain was completely gone. Bleach is wonderful, it’s quick, it’s independent because you can multitask, and it kills every stain that it comes in contact with (and a cricket if it got in your home.…yes I am sorry I had to, it took about 5 sprays, some screaming on my end…I repented…so sorry). Bleach is so strong it will have you running to it to clean a stain or running from it to keep you from getting the clothes you are wearing ruined (I’ve done both).
I found out that God likes to clean with bleach too.
1 John 1:7″… the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”
Thinking about Jesus’ blood today. If I were to compare what He did on the cross through His blood with a cleaning product I would compare this strong act of love to bleach. Stop using that cheap watered down cleaner that will only partially clean your heart and soul (mind, will, and emotions) for a temporary feel good. His blood literally cleansed us from ALL of our stains of sin. Yes you and you too. We are all special to God and He thought we were worth the high price of the cross through His son Jesus’s blood. Let’s imagine the stain of our sin and what happened when we received the salvation of Jesus. The stain of sin dissolved IMMEDIATELY! We have been forgiven and set free without question. We are brand new in Him through His blood \O/! A regular blood stain when it hits a surface will stain the surface and will need bleach to clean. Jesus’ blood is the only blood that acts as a bleaching agent that when it touches you it will thoroughly clean you leaving no evidence that a stain was ever present. His type of bleach is not hazardous to your health at all. And His type of bleach was for all with no restrictions or respect of persons.
There is no room to negotiate nor is there any reason to negotiate. God already settled the matter for us before we were born. I don’t care what you did prior Him, the moment you got saved and began your journey with Jesus, your stains were gone. I don’t care what you did AFTER the moment you got saved and began to walk with Jesus…once you repent of that sin, that spot is gone. Because we live in our flesh and our flesh will never want to obey God we are going to do things knowingly and unknowingly that will not be pleasing to the Father (ALL OF US including subtle secrete things in our thoughts and heart that no one can see but Jesus), but the key is to repent and get back to that place in God. No one can fill your place in Him but you.
I grew up in a day we sang hymns. I remember singing hymns (I can remember hearing my grandparent’s voices) and one chorus that sticks out in my mind is this.. “it reaches to highest mountain, and it flows to lowest valley…the blood that gives me strength from day to day, it will never lose it’s power, it will neh-eh-verr l-l-lose… it’s power. Pardon me it got good and I started writing it how we sang it. Another song that comes to mind..”Oh the blood of Jesus, Oh the blood of Jesus, Oh the blood of Jesus, that washes white as snow.” And I got one more we sang back then and my church family will sing it even today with Co-Pastor leading us “what can wash away my sins..nothing but the blood of Jesus, what can make me whole again, nothing but the blood of Jesus, Oh precious is that flow, that makes me white as snow, not other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus.”
I love singing about the blood of Jesus. I get sooo excited talking about the blood of Jesus. My grandparents and parents taught us how to use the power of pleading the blood of Jesus. Miracles happened pleading the blood of Jesus. You want to clean the atmosphere driving out the enemy who is trying to disrupt your home or cause an upset your job? I dare you by faith to get some oil and plead the blood of Jesus. Things shift in and around us and demons flee when we say the blood of Jesus. Know that the enemy is afraid of the blood of Jesus. I get so filled up remembering what His blood did for me and you. His love for us is still fresh and will never grow old. His blood is strong and potent and absolutely NOTHING can stand against it. When the blood hits it, everything dark is no more. The blood of Jesus is powerful, The blood of Jesus cleanses, The blood of Jesus covers and protects us, The blood of Jesus has made us free without doubt and without question. No need to walk with your head down. He is the lifter of your head, He is the one who satisfies us and sustains us, and justified us. He is the one who heals us and makes us WHOLE. He will never ever fail.
Revelation 1:5 -“… Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood.”
1 Corinthians 6:11-And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
Isaiah 1:18-“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool
Prayer: Father I trust you and I thank you for the cleansing power of the blood of your son Jesus. God give me a desire to wash my mind and my heart with your word. By faith I declare I am healed through the blood of Jesus. By faith I declare healing over others through the blood of Jesus. By faith I declare my mind is free through the blood of Jesus. By faith I declare that I am TOTALLY FREE INDEED because of your blood. I plead the blood of Jesus over my home, family, friends and neighborhood. I plead the blood of Jesus over my workplace. I plead the blood of Jesus over my business. I plead the blood of Jesus over my school. I plead the blood of Jesus over my ministry. And I plead the blood of Jesus over my church. Amen and Amen.
