1. Abel’s blood spilled brought a curse from the ground.
And He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground. 11 So now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. 12 When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield its strength to you. A fugitive and a vagabond you shall be on the earth.” Here we have a declaration from Almighty Yahveh that the blood has a voice. ” Genesis 4:10
As we start to examine the spiritual realm there are certain truths that become evident. One of those truths we want to examine today is that “blood” has a voice. And if blood does have a voice then we need to know what it is saying to us. Blood has been crying out for centuries and very few seem to understand what it is saying and how powerful is it’s voice. Yahveh said to Cain, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground”. Ables blood was a witness against Cain. The voice of the blood is so powerful that the grave can not silence it. Abel’s blood screamed out as a witness to the guilt of Cain’s criminal act against him.
2. But you shall put away innocent blood from Israel
The shedding of innocent blood is a criminal act against man and Yahveh and there are far to many occurrences of this transgression. The Father who knows all things knew the nature of man underwent a change and he would be given to such acts after the fall. “But if anyone hates his neighbor, lies in wait for him, rises against him and strikes him mortally, so that he dies, and he flees to one of these cities, 12 then the elders of his city shall send and bring him from there, and deliver him over to the hand of the avenger of blood, that he may die. 13 Your eye shall not pity him, but you shall put away the guilt of innocent blood from Israel, that it may go well with you. Deut. 19:11-13 Violent crimes happen everyday. I can’t remember when the last time the evening news didn’t have a report on a murder or rape or both. There is great danger in the times which we live, there are spiritual traps all around us. Not only is there danger surrounding our spiritual lives but also it surrounds our physical lives also. We are in the middle of a cultural revolution and the revolt seems to be against Father Yahveh. The world has always had a problem following the instructions of Father Yahveh, it seems we are always tempted to add to the Word or take away from it. There is a natural resistance to the instructions of Yahveh in the flesh and for this reason we must have a spiritual rebirth. Father Yahveh promised a heart transplant for any one that would make an application for it. The surgery is quite extensive and very complete. First He will take out the stoney heart and then He will replace it with a heart of flesh. However this does not complete the surgery. He will now ingrave His laws on the heart He has just placed in you and commanded that the laws would not be grievious to you.
3. The Blood of consecration was applied to the priest.
“You shall also take the other ram, and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands on the head of the ram. 20 Then you shall kill the ram, and take some of its blood and put it on the tip of the right ear of Aaron and on the tip of the right ear of his sons, on the thumb of their right hand and on the big toe of their right foot, and sprinkle the blood all around on the altar. 21 And you shall take some of the blood that is on the altar, and some of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it on Aaron and on his garments, on his sons and on the garments of his sons with him; and he and his garments shall be hallowed, and his sons and his sons’ garments with him. Exodus 29:19-21The priest consecrated or separated to Yahveh’s service by an offering for sin and applying the blood of the lamb to their right ear, right thumb and right big toe. This signified them as priest ministering to Yahveh in the Temple. The priest cared for the daily chores at the temple (in this case the Tabernacle) such as the slaughter of lambs that were to be offered for sin. It is so awesome that the Levitical priest were separated from the rest of the tribes of Israel by the ceremony of applying the blood of the lamb to the priest body. The blood has a voice to signify separation. The blood designated that the priest were consecrated to the Father’ service. This was a foreshadow of the blood of the true lamb of Yahveh being applied to the royal priesthood, the blood of the true lamb of Yahveh, Yahshua.
4. The blood applied to the false witness:
And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified. 24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it. 25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.Matt.27:23-25
His blood be on us and all our children! They were talking about the curse of innocent blood. Because of false witnesses they were able to justify the crucifixion of Yahshua. There was plenty of guilt to go around. The religious system of the time plotted to have Him crucified; so they were guilty of shedding “innocent blood” as well as the sin a “false witness”. With this in mind, if Yahshua was innocent of accused crimes, these people knew they would be in transgression of the commands of Yahveh. I can’t imagine the anger and animosity that raged through the crowd on that day. Obviously they were determined to see this thing through to the culmination which meant Yahshua dieing on the stake. They had no concept of Yahshua resurrecting from the dead, much less ascending to be with Father Yahveh.
5. Let this blood be on us and all of our children.
This cry that the crowd was shouting related to what the Word said about the one who shed innocent blood. They were meaning let the guilt of innocent blood be on us and all of our children. They were trying to speak a curse on themselves ( maybe in ignorance of the implications ). The important thing is that Father Yahveh had complete control over every situation on this mountian to the extent that the guards could not brake the legs of Yahshua because it was prophisied that not a bone will be broken. To the extent that the soldiers cast lots for His garments at the bottem of the stake. There are those who think that the devil had Yahshua crucified but the truth is Yahveh was in complete control and the devil would have done anything to stop what was happening on that Mountain. The culmination of these things meant the inevitable end to Satan’s kingdom was at hand and that he (Satan) was going to be ruled by whosoever would rely on the cleansing power of the blood of Yahshua to redeem them from the hand of Ha Satan. Satan knew he was losing his grip and there was nothing he could do to stop it. Satan tried to use Pilate to stop it by washing his hands of the innocent blood of Yahshua, but the Father was in complete control and He was in control of the peoples mouth. Father Yahveh would not let them curse the whole nation of Israel but turned there curse into a blessing. They intended to bring the guilt of the innocent blood on themselves and their children. Instead of it coming out of their mouth as a curse, they said only “let this blood be on us and all of our children”. We know the only way we are freed from sin is by the blood of Yahshua being applied to us and that is the way to be freed from sin. So in essence, they were speaking a blessing to themselves. I believe this curse was avoided by the love of Yahveh through Yahshua praying for them the whole time they were shouting crucify Him and finally Yahshua saying “forgive them Father they know not what they do.6. The children will not pay for the father’s sin:
6. The children will not pay for the father’s sin:
The children will not pay for the father’s sin according to Jeremiah 31:29-30 “In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children’s teeth are set on edge. 30 But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge. “ Almighty Yahveh said He would only punish the father for the father’s sin. He also said He would punish the sons for only the son’s sin. He said He would not punish the father for his son’s transgressions neither will I punish the son for the father’s sin. Can you see how the Father protected Israel from a curse? I have always considered them speaking a curse on themselves and all there descendants but that is not the case, they instead were speaking Salvation to themselves and their descendants. Let His blood be on us and all our children. Blessings to yours and all of your children and I hope His blood has been applied to you and yours because His blood does have a voice.
