the bloodthat speaks

Hebrews 12:24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

The Book of Genesis tells us of the first family feud that ended in one brother murdering another. This is the story of Cain who kills his brother Abel in Genesis 4:10-12. After Cain committed his murderous act, the Lord comes to Cain and said, “The blood of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.”Apparently Abel’s innocent blood cried out into the ears of God. Perhaps it was speaking cries of, “guilty; avenge me; punish him; give me justice.” Abel’s blood is contrasted to the shedding of Jesus’ innocent blood but that it speaks BETTER things than that of Abel’s (Heb. 12:24). Hebrews 9:15-23 adds that the blood of Jesus was not only shed and poured out on earth but into heaven. Jesus Himself is called a mediator of the blood of the New Covenant.

Whereas the blood of Abel spoke into the ears of God, the blood of Jesus testifies, speaks and cries better things than that of Abel’s blood which said, “Give me justice.” Jesus’ blood cries, “Mercy, mercy, mercy.” The Blood of Jesus witnesses and testifies in the ears of God, in the court of heaven, and in the face of the accuser, satan. “Reconciled, righteous, and redeemed!” We do not have to plead our case because the blood pleads our case. We add the word of our testimony to the blood Revelation 12:11. We confess our sins and cleanse ourselves John 1:9. God gives us mercy and not what we do deserve. There’s power in the Blood of Jesus.
