Washed in the Blood of the Lamb
Is More than Symbolic
by John T. Webb
Most Christians believe in miracles. Most also believe that the hand of God has touched them in one way or another. But few can point to a physical event that points out the wonders that God has created in this world -- wonders that most people don't even know that He has revealed in the Bible.
Some years ago, a friend who was rooming with me and I were working temp jobs while attending college. One day, he came home after having worked in a slaughterhouse. He had been carrying carcasses of sheep over his shoulders, and some of their blood had dripped onto his dark gray work uniform. We thought, well, that's blood. It'll be stained from now on.
Sure enough, after he washed it the spots were clearly visible where the blood had been. Except they were WHITE! The blood had bleached the dye out of the shirt and left sort of an anti-stain. Color washed out by BLOOD!
That gave us a new understanding of Rev. 7:14 (and of the everyday miracles that God provides but that we don't know about) -- "And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." And Is. 1:18 -- "Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."
Do you know the Lamb of God? Are your sins washed at white as snow?
"The next day John saw Jesus coming to him, and said, Behold the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world." (John 1:29)
"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other NAME under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)
