~~~~~ Enter a Sinner… and leave a Saint:
Let me take another illustration. There was the blood in Goshen. God says, “When I see the blood I will pass over you.” Now He does not say, “When I see Moses’ feelings, or the feelings of the people, I will pass over you”; or, “When I see you praying and weeping, I will pass over you”; but, “When I see the blood I will pass over you.” It was the blood that saved them, not their righteousness. And a little child by that blood in Goshen was just as safe as Moses or Aaron or Joshua or Caleb. It was the blood that saved them. Look! there is the Jew taking the hyssop. He dips it in the blood, and strikes it on the doorpost. One minute it is not there: the next it is there. The moment the blood is there they are saved. God says, “When I see the blood I will pass over you.” Some people say, “If I were only as good as that minister I should feel so safe” or, “If I were only as good as that mother in Israel who has been praying fifty years for the poor and unfortunate, should I not feel very safe? ”
My friends, if you are behind the blood, you are as safe as any man or woman who has been praying for fifty years. It is not their righteousness and good works that are going to save them. They never saved any one. God says, “When I see the blood I will pass over you.” [ABCOG: Moody understands “pass over” to mean “bypass”. It can also mean “hover over to protect”] And when I am sheltered behind the blood, then I am saved; and if I am not sheltered behind the blood, I am not saved. That was instantaneous, was not it? God says, “When I see the blood, it shall be a token, and I will not enter.” Death came down and passed over Egypt; and where the blood was on the doorpost he passed by; but where the blood could not be found, in he went and took the victim away.
The great palaces could not keep out death; wealth and position could not keep out death. He went and took the Crown Prince of Egypt; he took the richest and the poorest, the highest and the lowest. Death makes no distinction, except a man is behind the blood. My friends, be wise to-night, and get behind the blood. The blood has been shed. The blood is on the mercy-seat; and while it is there you can be saved. God is imputing to His Son your trespasses and sins. He says, “I will look at the blood on the mercy-seat.” Press in, my friends; make haste and get in tonight; for the Master of the house will rise up by-and-by and shut to the door, and then there will be no hope.
Taken from Dwight L Moody’s Last Sermon in London. Preached July 11th, 1875
