His Robe Dipped In Blood – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 9th

(His Blood: An Irrefutable Proof Of Purchase)

TO THE BIBLE: Revelation 19:11-13 MSG
“…I saw Heaven open wide—and oh! A white horse and its Rider. The Rider, named Faithful and True, judges and makes war in pure righteousness. His eyes are a blaze of fire, on his head many crowns. He has a Name inscribed that’s known only to himself. He is dressed in a robe soaked with blood, and he is addressed as “Word of God.””

Today’s opening verse talks about the second coming of our Lord Jesus, as He rides on a white horse, wearing a robe dipped in blood. Notice that John didn’t say His robe was red; that’s very significant.

The woman on the beast in Revelation 17:4 was dressed in purple and red clothes: “The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet….” Jesus, on the other hand, was wearing a robe dipped in blood. So, what does this mean?

When you want to lay claims to something you bought, you take the receipt. Jesus bought the whole world: “…The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field” (Matthew 13:44). Verse 38 shows us that the field is the world.

Now, here’s Jesus coming out of heaven to the earth with His only receipt—His blood and He’s robed with it—His proof of purchase of the whole world!

1 Corinthians 6:20 also says, “For you were bought at a price…” and that purchase wasn’t made with ordinary materials like silver, gold, and precious stones.

His blood was the currency with which He paid for the sins of the whole world (1 Peter 1:18-19). Having paid the great price for our sins, Jesus purchased us as gifts for God (Revelation 5:9 TLB).

Jesus paid for your life; so, you’re not your own anymore. Therefore, live on earth for Him alone because His blood, which represents His life, is your true value. His blood gives you remission, justification, access, fellowship, cleansing and the blessings of the New Testament.

Hebrews 9:12 says, “He went once for all into the [Holy of] Holies [of heaven], not by virtue of the blood of goats and calves [by which to make reconciliation between God and man], but His own blood, having found and secured a complete redemption (an everlasting release for us)” (AMPC). Glory to God!

Lord Jesus, thank you for paying the price that I could never have paid, in demonstration of the Father’s unconditional love, mercy and overwhelming kindness towards me. Thank you for purchasing me as a precious gift for the Father! Now I live joyfully in righteousness, free to serve you without guilt, inferiority or condemnation. Hallelujah!
