Blest or do you mean blessed? Our english word “blessed” derives from the Old English word “blest,” meaning, “to mark with blood.” We find the Old Testament Priest, in Leviticus, “dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle of the blood seven times before the Lord.” The sprinkling occurred on the horns of the altar, on the offering at the bottom of the altar, on Aaron and the priests, and on occasion ~ the people. The evidence of forgiveness shown forth from the “mark with blood,” blessed. Therefore, if you are “blest,” you are “marked by the blood.” Comment if you are “blest.”

Amen…Yes, I am BLEST! Daily, I am reminded of what our Lord has done for me. Today, as I sit, with a broken ankle…(just last night, I fell), I feel so very blessed that God has allowed me this luxury of sitting…of being still…to ponder who He is. I am Marked with the Blood of Jesus, and I feel so blessed right now.
