Tell us more about the recent single ‘ The blood of Jesus’?

The Song’’ The Blood Of Jesus’’ was gotten from the scripture ‘REV 12 V 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony’ Before God created Man He knew he would fall. Before God formed man He foreordained his redemption with Christ Precious Blood, so The Cross is a Glad announcement of our redemption through the anointing death of Jesus Christ.

And this is the key message in the Song ‘The Blood of Jesus’
