Anyone into the Foo Fighters?

I haven’t been a follower in the past – if it comes on the radio or tv then yip okay it is in the listenable category, but not like others that make me go “yeah I really like this…”

But their latest video caught my eye… mostly because it illustrated something I had been musing about for a while. For those regular readers of my blog you may know that I – t his sounds weird – love the blood of Jesus… this resonates from old hymns that my youth group that I got saved in sung… such as “the Power in the Blood” and “Nothing But The Blood” which really get inside me and make me so grateful for the sacrifice of Jesus and for “what it did…”

I love verses like:

Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony. And they did not love their soul until death.”

Ephesians 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace,

Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you who were once afar off are made near by the blood of Christ.

Colossians 1:20 And through Him having made peace through the blood of His cross, it pleased the Father to reconcile all things to Himself through Him, whether the things on earth or the things in Heaven.

Hebrews 9:12 nor by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered once for all into the Holies, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

Hebrews 10:19 Therefore, brothers, having boldness to enter into the Holy of Holies by the blood of Jesus,

1Peter 1:18-19 knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, silver or gold, from your vain manner of life handed down from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot;

1John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

Revelation 1:5 …Jesus Christ the faithful Witness, the First-born from the dead and the Ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood

so watch the video – it isnt so much the lyrics of the song but the visual image when the wall of red behind the band wash away the riot gear clad guys… its big, its aggressive, its violent, its bloody, it washes…  and this is how i see the blood of Jesus washing my sin away…  i dont know, it just clicks with me…. it speaks my language….
