21 Then Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and said to them "Go at once and select the animals for your families and slaughter the Passover lamb. 22 Take a bunch of hyssop, dip it into the blood in the basin and put some of the blood on the top and on both sides of the doorframe. Not one of you shall go out the door of his house until morning. 23 When the LORD goes through the land to strike down the Egyptians, he will see the blood on the top and sides of the doorframe and will pass over that doorway, and he will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses and strike you down. 24 "Obey these instructions as a lasting ordinance for you and your descendants.
I have been asked "Why is it necessary for an unbeliever seeking salvation to say a prescribed prayer of salvation in order to receive Jesus into their heart and into their life?"
Ans. "If you acknowledge with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and trust in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved." (Romans 10:8)
You may have read about the blood of Jesus, you may have gone to a move about the blood of Jesus, but UNLESS you apply the blood of Jesus to the door-posts of your heart, by means of a prayer of salvation, it will be ineffective in your life and the Angel of Death will still have authority over you.
You may even be using the name of Jesus in your prayers and attending services at a local congregation faithfully every week, but until you acknowledge and symbolically apply His blood you will not have life. "Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin." Again, "Life is in the blood."
