Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

The blood of Jesus is incorruptible. It is the blood of God, the eternal God. See Acts 20:28. True, our God is a Spirit and in a spirit there is no flesh and blood; but thank God, God became flesh and dwelt among us (Jn 1:14).

In the Old Testament time sins were only covered(Psa 32:1). From Hebrews Chapter 9 we understand that the corruptible blood of bulls and of goats could not purge the conscience. The conscience can be washed only by the precious blood of Jesus. As Jesus offered His precious blood through the Holy Spirit or through the eternal Spirit, God the Father accepted that blood, and hence there is wonderful power in the blood of Jesus. “For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: how much more shall the blood of Christ, Who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” (Heb 9:13,14).

The blood of Jesus, which is the blood of the eternal God, was offered through the eternal Spirit. So the blood of Christ has eternal efficacy, and it has eternal blessings. Its power is eternal. ‘Eternal’ means having no beginning or end. There is no change in its power, in its character or in its efficacy; there is no decay or corruption – it never grows old; it’s always new.

Dear reader, the incorruptible blood of Jesus is able to cleanse your conscience eternally. “The blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sin” (I Jn 1:7).
