TODAY’S MANNA for Friday May 19, 2017

Are you a king and a priest?

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, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Revelation 1:5-6 King James Version

THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE(s)…
My Bible says I am both a king and Priest unto God through Jesus my Lord! I am a saint as soon as I am born again, I don’t have to wait to be canonized by some priest after I have died. What bible are you reading?
The revelation of John relates once again to us that we have been cleansed, had our sins washed away, by the Blood of Jesus. Notice it says by His own Blood, not just by blood, to infer that of animal sacrifices as in the old covenant. God makes it real plain here in His Word that it is NOTHING but the Blood of Jesus (His only begotten Son) that cleanses us and makes us whole again in His sight. Oh but He doesn’t stop there, we have a new and better covenant now. Jesus has also made us kings and priests unto God with that cleansing.

What can wash away my sins?
NOTHING but the Blood of Jesus!
What can make me whole again?
NOTHING but the Blood of Jesus!

There is NO other way except through Jesus!

MY PRAYER…
Father, I thank You for sending me Your Son Jesus. Thank You Lord that His Blood has the power to cleanse and wash me white as snow. Thank You Father that I was able to give You my old tattered garments and through Jesus You have given me a royal robe of righteousness, pure and white. Thank You Father that You not only made a way for me, but Jesus was willing to pay the price for me. Father help me to be worthy of the price paid for me.
In Jesus’ Holy name and by the power of His precious Blood I pray.
Amen
