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

It is said that there are at least fifteen types of human blood groups. Normally a blood test can prove whether or not a particular man is the father of a particular child. The blood of the child and its father can be checked scientifically for some genetic connection. BUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS IS UNIQUE. He had no earthly father. Everyone inherits blood group factors at conception but the blood of Jesus could not be grouped because it was singular. It is free from any genetic inheritance or connection. His Father was His heavenly Father, the eternal, everlasting Father. The blood of Christ, therefore, is also called the blood of God. “The church of GOD, which He hath purchased with HIS OWN BLOOD” (Acts 20:28).

“And the angel said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon you and the power of the Highest shall overshadow you; therefore, also, THAT HOLY ONE WHO IS TO BE BORN WILL BE CALLED THE SON OF GOD” (Luke 1:35). This clearly proves that Jesus had no biological father. His blood is therefore PRECIOUS BLOOD. “Ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold… but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” (1 Pet 1:18,19).

Dear reader, you are redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus Christ. You are precious to God as His precious blood was shed to redeem you.

           “Precious, precious blood of Jesus

            Ever flowing free;

            O, believe it; O, receive it –

            ’Tis for thee.”
