DAILY READINGS: Gen. 10-11:26; Job 13:1-14:22; Matt. 6:19-7:6

I set My rainbow in the cloud. Genesis 9:13, NKJV
And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you… Exodus 12:13, NKJV

Our God is the saving and preserving God as well as the just and righteous God. The rainbow promises that He will never again destroy all humanity with a flood as in Noah’s day. And the blood that the Israelites put on their doors saved them from the death-dealing Angel. So every one who trusts the Lord Jesus Christ, who shed His blood for their sins, will be saved. His word is true. —Ben Tuininga

Precious blood that has redeemed us, All the price is paid!
Perfect pardon now is offered, Peace is made.
