"Jesus said hear and obey. Obedience requires action, that action brings your dreams closer." Alex Howell

Exodus 12:13 says, " the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague will not be on you to destroy you..."

This command is important to us because without being covered in the blood of Jesus, this command is still in effect. 1st Corinthians 10:11 tells us " that all these happenings are examples and warnings to us." Now we see why Jesus said over and over " Hear and obey." For us as believers Jesus fulfilled this command.(Matthew 5:17) Any one thankful for the blood of Jesus?

But you may be wondering, "can the blood really protect me?" "Have I been good enough? What if......." Don't add to Gods conditions. He said, " when I see the blood, I will pass over you..." He did not say, when I see the blood plus your faith, and all these other things, then I will pass over you.

It's the blood alone that delivers you. If you think it's because of all these other reasons, you will always be in doubt and wondering, " am I good enough, am I really saved....."

But when you truly know in your heart that it's Jesus' blood alone that saves, protects, and restores you, your heart will say, " sin has no place with me." Then you will enter into true peace that passes understanding .(Philippians 4:7)

Yea, but what about sin? What about it? God would ask us, why do you need that, " My Son's blood enters you into a covenant with Me where I supply all your needs...."(Philippians 4:19)

No matter how good the bait that wants to lead you astray seems, that bait is only interested in killing, stealing and destroying. Jesus says, stay under my blood, " It will lead you in one direction-- the abundant life."( John10:10)
