Oh the Blood of Jesus!

July 16, 2018

Psalm 147:3 AMP … He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds [healing their pain and comforting their sorrow].

.
Oh the blood of Jesus
The blood of the Lamb
Poured out in love
Healing for the broken hearted
By His stripes
Made whole  –
Isa 53:3-5 

His wounds not erased
But made whole …

Beautiful scars worn as a testimony of Jesus
His redeeming love on display throughout eternity!

Revelation 5:6 Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne—

The Lamb will use our scars(healed wounds) to help others
They are our testimony of Jesus
We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and
The word of testimony
Rev 12:11
.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Amplified Bible (AMP)
3 Blessed [gratefully praised and adored] be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts and encourages us in every trouble so that we will be able to comfort and encourage those who are in any kind of trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

It’s never been outrun
By anything I’ve done
It’s never been too weak
To heal what’s hurting me
There is no depth of shame
That it cannot erase
There is no heart so torn
That it cannot restore

Oh the blood
The lamb of glory
Shed with love
To change my story
Flowing now(and throughout eternity) with unending power
Oh the blood of Jesus

Beautiful Scars
By Karen Holland

Jesus, the Lamb stands and reigns
Nail pierced hands and feet -Ps 22:16
A spear pierced side -Jn 19:34
His wounds for you and me -Isa 53:3-5
Now beautiful scars that tell the story
Of His great love and resurrection power
An eternal invitation to know Him
To behold Him, bow before Him and adore Him
Worthy is the Lamb to receive all honor and praise!

Beautiful scars worn by the Lamb for you and me
Display His redeeming love throughout eternity!

John 20:19-23 …     On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.

Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, Receive the Holy Spirit. …

Jesus kept His scars and showed them. They are on display for all eternity. His scars tell the story of His great love for you and me.

A scar by it’s very nature implies healing. They are an invitation to share your testimony pointing to the healing power and love of our Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t hide your scars, they are beautiful and  have a story to tell!

Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Let the redeemed of the LORD say so{tell their story} , Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy -Ps107:1-2

Isaiah 53:3-5 AMP … He was despised and rejected and forsaken by men, a Man of sorrows and pains, and acquainted with grief and sickness; and like One from Whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we did not appreciate His worth or have any esteem for Him.

Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy].

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.
