Romans 9:15-16 “For He saith to Moses, I WILL HAVE MERCY ON WHOM I WILL HAVE MERCY, and I WILL HAVE COMPASSION ON WHOM I WILL HAVE COMPASSION. So then IT IS NOT OF HIM THAT WILLETH, NOR OF HIM THAT RUNNETH, but of GOD THAT SHEWETH MERCY.”

My recent study in social anthropology, particularly human behavioral tendencies reveal that every human being has the capacity to do what is wrong in thought and actions. The heart of man is desperately wicked. The best of men, will still be men at their best. Celebrities and the acclaimed role models suddenly do things that are unbecoming and unexpected. The Jews and Gentiles commit sin. The Bible declares that there is no man that SINNETH NOT- (2Chronicles 6:36) “If they sin against Thee, FOR THERE IS NO MAN WHICH SINNETH NOT, and Thou be angry with them” (1 John 1:8) “If we say that WE HAVE NO SIN, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” The emphasis in this short thesis is the “inevitable need of mankind for the MERCY OF GOD. The emphasis is not the ability of man to sin, but the appropriation of God’s Mercy daily by sinners and saints.

Even when we are walking in the LIGHT – the BLOOD OF JESUS – The BLOOD OF MERCY – would be required. 1 John 1:7 “But if we walk in the LIGHT, as HE is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST His Son CLEANSETH us from all sin. Everyone has the capacity to sin consciously or unconsciously including Preachers, Pastors, Prophets, Governors, Presidents, etc. Although we do not have A LICENCE to sin because those who are born of God will never be happy practicing sin.

The truth must be told – “ALL HUMANS SIN”- including those who are anointed – Reverends, Bishops and Archbishops, Cardinals, etc. Some sin more, some sin less – WE ALL SIN. Let him without sin first cast the stone on the culprit. If God should mark iniquity who will stand? The man who kept 99% of the Law is as guilty as the one who kept 10% of the Law (James 2:10) “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all” By the keeping of the law shall no man be justified. We have all sinned and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) ”For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” What has kept all of us alive in spite of our human frailties and wickedness? Simple: IT IS GOD’S MERCY. Mercy gives us the good things we don’t deserve. God has concluded and sentenced all mankind to His Mercy.

It is of His Mercy that we are not consumed. Great is His faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23) “It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness.” Today, God has personified His Mercy in the INCARNATED CHRIST –JESUS THE MESSIAH. JESUS CHRIST is the MERCY OF GOD manifested in the flesh. Whoever believes in Him will not perish but enjoy God’s eternal life. The Word of God declares (Psalm 32:10) “Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: BUT HE THAT TRUSTETH IN THE LORD, MERCY SHALL COMPASS HIM ABOUT.” God’s Mercy has been released for our redemption. The price for our absolute redemption and emancipation has been paid.

The Blood of Mercy is flowing now to take our sins away. Today is the day to receive God’s fresh mercies. Receive the Blood of Mercy that was shed on the Cross of Calvary. That Holy Blood takes care of your Past, Present and Future sins. Today, receive an overdose of God’s Mercy through the Precious Holy Blood of JESUS. You will live in eternity with God when you take a bath in the Holy Blood. Mercy will give you freedom in place of prison sentence. God’s Mercy will give to you what you cannot work for in a lifetime. Trust in the LORD today and mercy will encompass you about. Through the Mercy of God, you have been made the righteousness of God. What kills others will never kill you because of God’s MERCY.

PRAYER: Father God, I come to You today on the authority of Your Word. I confess JESUS CHRIST as the absolute LORD and SAVIOUR of my life. I come today to receive the Mercy of God. I plead the Blood of Mercy – the Very Precious Blood of JESUS. I take a bath in the Holy Blood of JESUS for the remission of all my sins. Father God let Your mercy overrule judgment in my life. It is not of him that willeth or runneth, Father in the Name of JESUS, show me mercy in every area of my life. Father let Your mercy encompass me always. Amen.
